I have at some point owned several Rankin/Bass movies. I do have Flight of Dragons, which I need to get on dvd, The Last Unicorn and The Lord of the Rings trilogy.  Flight of Dragons is underrated, as is Wind in the Willows which I no longer have.

Flight of Dragons was my fav movie as a kid - I loved it more than The Last Unicorn. I haven't seen it in a long time, but Smrgol's last scene always gets me. Awesome film.

Same here, Smrgol was Peter's mentor when Peter was in Gorbash. And that Orge caused his death.

I have been listening to the theme song from The Last Unicorn several times today.

I just watched The Last Unicorn for the first time as an adult last night. (I had to start the movie and come back later) I enjoyed it for the most part but I’m not sure how many times I will want to rewatch it. The Red Bull was still a little scary to me when he was chasing the unicorn through the forest and about to attack the transformed human unicorn. The confrontation on the beach wasn’t scary.

I loved (and still love) The Last Unicorn-

My dad recorded it onto a VHS and we watched it repeatedly until the tape wore out-  my favorite part as a kid was when the unicorns came crashing out of the waves.

I red the book way later (it was one of several stories in a book by Peter Beagle) I thought the movie actually did a decent job of staying true to the story-

I'd highly recommend the story, so melancholy but beautiful.

Except for that tree...  that was weird.

I thought the tree was weird also. I was thinking it was supposed to be comic relief since the story is rather serious but there was comic relief when Schmendrick created the illusions of Robin Hood and most of the others chased after them. Did anyone notice the illusions walked right over the campfire but no one seemed to suspected they weren't real?

I really thought Haggard was going to thrown the unicorn/Lady Amathea in to the sea to join the others when he confronted her on the ledge and said he knew she was really a unicorn.

I did enjoy how we see everything basically from the unicorn's perspective and how she slowly loses her unicorn self the longer she stays in human form.

I might read the book someday also. :)
