Vid Title: Eye of the Tiger
Length: 2:16
Song: Survivor - Eye of the Tiger
Source: A Knight's Tale
Warnings: None that I can think of
Made for: Jaidanwolf, Festivids 2011

Summary: A Knight's Tale is both 20 years too late and nearly 700 years too early to be a 1980s sports movie. That doesn't stop it from trying.

Notes: Thanks to [personal profile] echan, [livejournal.com profile] butterflykiki, [livejournal.com profile] lizbetann, and [livejournal.com profile] diannelamerc for your beta fu. Thanks to Jaidanwolf for the prompt and the suggestion of We Will Rock You for the song which put me into a sports-movie frame of mind. Thanks to whoever randomly posted Bill Conti's Gonna Fly Now to Facebook for helping me narrow that frame of mind until I had a song.

OMG

OSDHFKDJSAHIFHADSFLKHFSDHAF1#@$%^*&((){(*&^%#GFLKHTDT.

YES. THIS IS FULL OUT KEYMASH.

BECAUSE THIS MOVIE IS MY GUILTY PLEASURE.

AND THIS SONG. THIS MOVIE. THIS SONG. WHAT HAVE YOU DONE? WHAT. HAVE. YOU. DONE?

I SERIOUSLY KINDA WANT TO MAKE OUT WITH YOU RIGHT NOW.

THIS. VID. THIS. VIIIIID.

OK.

I will try to calm down.

BUT I DON'T THINK I CAN.

And yes, I missed the original festivid post (I missed . . . most of festivids this year D:) BUT OMG.

I laughed my whole through this. And then when Rufus Sewell's character came on and he and Heath Ledger's character were giving each other the MANSTARE OF DOOM to the lyrics "eye of the tiger" I sort of epically lost my shit and started laughing and clapping and chanting "THIS VID THIS VID THIS VID" to my empty apartment.

Basically: this vid wins at life and I am saving it, especially for those days when I need to laugh hysterically at something that is basically made of awesome and Heath Ledger's MANSTARE OF DOOM.

Your life is a sad place if you do not have a gif folder, my friend. It is a place of woe. I don't even remember how I survived without a gif folder.

There is NOTHING GUILTY about loving this movie. It is a joyful precious sparkling jewel of wonder and delight. The vid is similar, but (somehow) with more cheese factor.

EXACTLY. Yes. I don't know how this works, but yes. It takes the cheese up to a new level with this movie. And it's glorious.

And the movie is glorious. I adore it.

thanks so much for this fanvideo! its one of my fav movies, and one of the main reason is the comitment to the 80s sport movie aesthetic setting ruels be dammed. (its no suprise that one of my other feel good, rainy day movies is mighty ducks) (another reason is the easy love with this found family/poly group (They wrote the love letter together one of my fav trope that is never doen enough!))the song choice is perfect.
sorry i dont have a lot to say. just wanted to send love.
