Fans of the 1987 film The Princess Bride (us included) are always excited to reminisce about the romantic fantasy classic. The movie is memorable for so many reasons (like Robin Wright's breathtaking beauty, Elwes's breathtaking beauty, Andre the Giant, and R.O.U.S.s), but it may be most famous for its quotable lines. The movie is available on Netflix, and in celebration, we've rounded up the best quotes, which, incidentally, you can still use in your everyday life.

Queen Of Spain review
Told primarily in its native tongue, but with some English, mostly coming from the American actors in the picture, Trueba’s film is set in 1950s Spain where returning actress Macarena Granada (Cruz) is welcomed home to shoot a Hollywood-financed historical production. We’re introduced to the actress and via reels of archived footage from the day, some real, some enhanced with Cruz’s likeness skillfully inserted. We’re painted an instant picture of Granada’s life up-to-now, both private and professional before quickly shifting to the then present-day and the character of Blas Fontiveros (Antonio Resines), who has also returned home after a long period of time missing. »

The film will explore the wrestler’s upbringing in France as André René Roussimoff, his wrestling career, and his forays into Hollywood. Diagnosed in his 20s with acromegaly — gigantism — Roussimoff became one of the most celebrated professional wrestlers of his era and starred in the 1987 Rob Reiner movie “The Princess Bride.”
“For more than 20 years, Andre the Giant’s larger than life personality and unique charisma captured the imagination of fans around the world,” said WWE chairman and CEO Vince McMahon. “I will always value our friendship, and am proud to tell the story of the ‘Eighth Wonder of the World’.”
Titled “Andre the Giant,” the documentary is also Simmons’ first project at HBO since his talk show “Any Given Wednesday” was canceled in November. Simmons signed a deal in 2015 to host the »

However, his Martian body can’t handle Earth’s gravity, so he literally risks his life to have a normal teenage Earth experience.
Rings is the next installment of The Ring franchise. Thirteen years after the horrid events from the original series, »

Spoiler alert: Do not read unless you have seen “Homeland’s” Jan. 29 episode, “The Covenant.”
Carrie learns a hard lesson and finagles her way out of a jam as only she can. Saul bares down on a bad guy with fast-talking intensity, furrowed brow and formidable beard. And Quinn gets a good chunk of his groove back in the third episode of “Homeland’s” sixth season, “The Covenant.”
The episode written by Ron Nyswaner and directed by Lesli Linka Glatter finds our characters doing what they do best, albeit in a slightly different context than in past seasons. This episode felt like a table-setting for more dramatic developments to come. But it is always a pleasure to watch these great actors — Claire Danes, Mandy Patinkin and Rupert Friend — bring to life telling moments big and small that add to depth to their characters.
Meanwhile, the episode also lays the track for renewed suspicion of F. Murray Abraham’s »

Ryan Gosling is on his way to winning big at the 89th Annual Academy Awards!
The 36-year-old actor was nominated for an Oscar for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role for La La Land on Tuesday, gushing over the prestigious accomplishment in a statement obtained by Et.
"I'm very grateful to the Academy for recognizing my work in La La Land," Gosling, who stars opposite Emma Stone in the Damien Chazelle-directed musical, explained. "It was a true collaboration, so to see everyone else's wonderful work on the film acknowledged so generously makes it even more special."
This is his second nomination in this category. In 2007, he was nominated for his role in Half Nelson, where he portrayed a drug-addicted junior high school teacher in the inner city. He lost the accolade to Forest Whitaker, who won for »

ScreenJunkies is continuing their Fan Appreciation Month with the next installment of Honest Trailers as voted on by their viewers. Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure was the first one to get the Honest Trailer treatment this monthafter coming in at #5, and now we have the movie that landed the #4 spot. The Princess Bride […]

Honest Trailers’ whole thing is taking the piss out of movies, so it’s a testament to the power of Rob Reiner’s The Princess Bride that the Screen Junkies guys can’t find too much to complain about when breaking down the film. Sure, the sets are crappy, the music is cheesy, and the action isn’t actually that exciting, but even the snarkiest of YouTube series isn’t immune to the film’s charms. In fact, the voice-over starts by describing The Princess Bride as “a satire of all those sappy, swashbuckling medieval love stories that happens to be the best sappy, swashbuckling medieval love story ever made.”
Still the video gets in some solid jabs about The Princess Bride’s “really, really polite action,” its obsession with catchphrases, and the somewhat questionable development of its central romance. But maybe the best gag is the one that demonstrates »

Ok, if you're an 80s baby you probably love The Princess Bride. Just like me. And if you have kids, you've probably passed this love down to them, keeping that love going and growing. It's true, The Princess Bride- similar to The Wizard of Oz- had a forgettable theatrical run but ended up becoming a beloved film for generations to come.
There are very few people out there who've seen The Princess Bride who can't quote the hell out of it or share with you what a soft spot they have in their hearts for it. That's what makes this news so troubling (not really):
The Princess Bride has gotten...An Honest Trailer!
Yes, you know the ones. The trailers that mock and rip apart movies by revealing plot holes, absurd ideas, and generally taking the piss out of things.

Last week, I published a rough-looking forecast for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story's Chinese premiere. In that report, I pointed to two key issues affecting the predictably gloomy outlook for the film in China. One had to do with the history of Star Wars in the country, and the other had to do with something I affectionately referred to as Star Wars: Attack of The Smog. Now that we're a few days removed from the film's opening weekend in China, we can have a better look at how that all panned out and we can also get some insight from an industry analyst about why Star Wars fares the way it does there.
So, how did Rogue One: A Star Wars Story end up doing? The film's opening weekend in China scored a $31 million haul. »

When Vin Diesel returns to the xXx series, he hopes to reinvigorate it the same way he did when he returned to the Fast & Furious franchise. The third film in the series, titled xXx: Return of Xander Cage comes out soon and it features a stellar cast that'll find Diesel surrounded by the likes of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story's Donnie Yen, as well as Deepika Padukone, Toni Collette, Ruby Rose, Nina Dobrev, Tony Jaa, Kris Wu, Michael Bisping, Rory McCann, Nicky Jam, Neymar Jr., and a returning Samuel L. Jackson.
At the film's London premiere, Diesel made an extra special entrance since a limousine simply wouldn't suit Xander Cage. The international superstar arrived in a helicopter, landing in front a giant, flaming xXx logo.
Diesel also went "Live" for all of his Facebook fans as he landed in the chopper, »
