Would you like to see a sequel to "Legend" in the future (don't think about how Hollywood would mangle it, but rather, do you think adding another chapter to the story would be a good idea or is the story complete now so that adding more would weaken it?)
Yes
No
Undecided
If there were a sequel but only some (or perhaps none) of the original actors signed on to do the film (obviously Billy Barty wouldn't be back as Screwball because he recently passed away. Tom Cruise would almost definitely not resume his role as Jack), would you like the sequel to be made with substitute actors?
Yes--new actors would be fine as long as it's "Legend"
No--without the original actors it wouldn't be "Legend" anymore
Would you like to see a remake of the film (not a sequel, but remaking the same story--most likely with some actors being different)?
Yes--Hollywood could do so much more with it now
No--it's perfectly fine the way it is
Undecided
Would you like the movie to be re-relased to the big screen (like Star Wars a few years back), most likely with new scenes, etc.?
Yes--it would be a box office success this time around
No--it would just flop like last time.
Many of you are aware that David Bennent--who played Gump--is German and that in the final cut of the film all his lines were re-dubbed by Alice Playten (Blix). Ridley Scott did this because he thought the David's accent would be intimidating and hard-to-understand for children viewers. Do you agree or disagree with this strategy?
Agree--children might have trouble understanding the accent
Disagree--the accent would have been fine and should have stayed
Out of these listed movies, which one do you think is most similar to "Legend" (I didn't ask which other one you like or love--compare with "Legend," but don't simply gush over Jareth or Lady Amalthea or something:-):

The Princess Bride
Willow
Ever After
Dragonheart
