This fun, fantastical story set on the flat planet of Discworld is like none other. The most unlikely of characters meet up in very unusual ways. We have a tourist from a land based on science and technology, Twoflower (Sean Astin), and a washed-up wizardry student, Rincewind (David Jason) from Ankh-Morpork’s Unseen University of Wizardry who has been cursed by a very evil and dangerous spellbook called the Octavo. Add in an overly-ambitious wizard, Trymon (Tim Curry) looking to kill his way to the top, and some other legendary characters borrowed from other stories and given a new sort of life on Discworld, and you have over three hours of great adventure put together in such a great way, you really don’t want the journey of Twoflower and Rincewind to end.

So many things could have been added, and when you have so much to work with, perhaps it is best to remember to add some important secondary characters. The extremely old and merry Tom Bombadil was never even mentioned, as was his ever elusive quest, to have the water nymph, Goldberry, as his own. Bree-lands was as well as expected, but there was no mention of Bill Ferny and his Southern bandits. The Midgewater Marshes were just perfect, and there could never be enough bugs, as is true with any marsh. Weathertop and the Lonelands were a bit too green for plains, and the Trollshaws, where they met up with Arwen were far too open. Read more... (681 words, 129 images, estimated 2:43 mins reading time)
