Yes, I picked a Tom Cruise movie, but his "charm" in Legend
somehow works. Director Ridley Scott like John Boorman in Excalibur
uses imagery heavily to tell the story and here to add wonder and magical qualities.
Every time it plays on television (Ridley Scott must have made a deal with Ted
Turner), I find myself watching it and the artificial beauty.
I have recently learned that there is additional footage out there as well as
a second soundtrack by Jerry Goldsmith, which was made with an earlier, longer
cut of the movie. I personally enjoy the Tangerine Dream soundtrack that is
on the American version of the movie, but I also feel that the alternate soundtrack
and the additional footage could add greatly to the movie. I hope to be able
to one day see that alternative and judge for myself. A Special Edition DVD
has been in the works for some time now and maybe some of the extra footage
and/or music will be included.
