During a recent viewing of "Willow" on Disney+, the, well, 1988-ness of the fantasy adventure just jumped off the screen. It still has plenty to offer — including the bond formed by its unlikely namesake hero, portrayed by Warwick Davis, and his companion-in-quest Madmartigan, Val Kilmer's confident but disgraced knight character — but its ...Read more
