Legend (1985)

So I'm making a sort of a jump to the future, because I need something more fresh and easy to watch.
What I got is Ridley Scott's fairy tale about princesses, fairies and goblins. Yeah... I know how it sounds, but no, there are no dragons with light sabers fighting in another dimension involved. And just to tell the truth , Legend has every thing needed for a fairy tale, creatures, locations,the lighting, magic items and magic itself. Just for the magic, that's kinda funny what they did in 1985, it looks sorta good, but so cheap by todays standards, and not enough of fireballs and cthulhu.
 What some of you might notice, is that this looks like Zelda. I haven't played it myself, but surely everyone knows that dude with the little light thingy by his side. Same thing right here, Tom Cruise dressed in green with long hair, jumping up and down and I'm all like "is this a tribute to Zelda, or is this the other way around ?" Just in case you're wondering, the funny fact is that Zelda was first released in 1986. Thats right , precisely 26 years before 2012, coincidence ? You tell me.
 Also, I thing that Legend (of Zelda ?) should have been made longer that this, because there is so much to say in just 94 minutes that everything just happens so fast. Stuff happens non-stop, not even a second to build tension or just to chill the quest down. Because of that you might be wondering what the "forest" is going on and just end up with messed up inside.
 OK, there's one for those who saw this: witch would you chose - princess or the fairy ?
hot fairy
acceptable princess
and hell for all... can't find good quality pictures of this movie... god really hates me.
