I have to reboot this today!
((I HAVE BEEN WAITING ALL YEAR!))
"Well my daddy taught me how to sing, and that’s why this voice means everything,
Sun do shine, you better shine”
I may have just made this my new alarm. I am a child.
I can’t get over the fact that The Duke is a phone cord twirler, how very.
The Duke: Villian
Wears a monocle.
Sings songs about batteries.
Wait, I almost forgot the cape.
Out of all the villains I watched while growing up, this one sticks out as one of the most evil.
While it is true that throughout the movie he is shown to be somewhat of a joke, the way he flees from light, it is his sick almost Hannibal Lector personality that sets him apart. He openly informs the cast that he WILL murder and devour every one of the main characters and their friends. He even shares just how much he will relish in said murder.
However it is not until the end when we see how truly evil he is. Whereas many villains will maim or wound the hero, the Grand Duke actually MURDERS the main character.
He doesn’t just murder the kid. He strangles the life out of him. He uses his magic to strangle - ie crush the windpipe - of a 9 year old boy who was changed into a kitten.
AND THEY SHOW IT.
Does anyone else remember this movie?
