As You Wish - A Princess Bride Event

Damien mentioned this to me about a month ago and as soon as he said it I thought, awesome! Next Thursday (13th August) is the ‘Princess Bride Twitter evening’. Basically the concept is simple; put on one of the the greatest action/adventure/romance/comedy movies of all time, get a bunch of friends, and tweet the night away in a discussion about the movie on Twitter.

Early reports suggest that much of the Irish Twitter-sphere have not seen the movie (blasphemous!!) so this will be a first for many people. Ah to be able to relive your first time ;)

Damien got the inspiration for the night from Graham Linehan’s Bad Movie night with the major exception that this is of course an awesome movie night.

The hashtag for the event is #asyouwish

The movie is directed by Rob Reiner and stars Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Fred Savage, Peter Falk, Billy Crystal and Mel Smith (among others!).

Check out IAmSteph, Mulley's Blog and (who I also owe a thanks to for the trailer above) for more info on the evening.

Just found another Tweeter who has yet to see it so I don't feel like a total loser! Hoping it won't be over-hyped for me now :)

You couldn't over-hype Princess Bride - it's that good!
