The Princess Bride Twitter night. August 13. 8pm. #asyouwish

And it’s all to do with this:
If you’re interested, a few of us Twitter folk are having a Princess Bride Twitter evening on Thursday August 13th at 8pm. At 8pm on the button we all press play on the DVD in our drives and start watching while sharing the experience (i.e. comment loudly) on Twitter… It’s a fun shared experience. I was thinking the hashtag for the event could be: #asyouwish
Have you seen The Princess Bride? It’s a pretty amazing film from 1987.
Directed by Rob Reiner, it’s a fairy tale with swordplay, giants, an evil prince, a beautiful princess and stars Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Wallace Shawn, Andre the Giant, Fred Savage and Peter Falk.
There’s also Billy Crystal, Mel Smith, Carol Kane and Wallace Shawn. The Oscar nominated soundtrack is by Mark Knopfler.
There’s some fantastic quotes. You know them when you hear them.
Here’s the trailer:
Have you seen it? No? Well, Thursday August 13 is your chance. Deadly, a good reason to have a night in!
