    I would think more i'ts a reference to Fezzik from "The princess bride", as ogre's and giants (at least in most fiction) are considered one and the same.

    That was such a good movie.. Whenever Lady Kyra starts to sound naggy I can still check her with a "As You Wish.."

    It's one of the most quotable movies of all time. From what I understand, the actors were more volunteers than actually being cast, and it was from their insistence that it got made (more a labor of love than a job).

    It's a Movie both my kids still love and enjoy now as adults. In a couple of years I play to sit down and enjoy it with my Granddaughter. I'm sure she'll love it just as much as her mother does. I know at least for me it's one of those few movies that I don't mind seeing again and again.
