To Increase Quality Of Anything, Simply Add Falk

The other day, I was thinking about A Storm of Swords, and the upcoming events of season three of Game of Thrones, and the first thing that popped into my mind was Peter Cook shouting "Mawwiage!" Which of course got me to wanting to watch Princess Bride, which I promptly did (if you are ever more then ten minutes away from the nearest copy of the Princess Bride, correct the horrible direction your life has taken). As I was watching it, it occurred to me how much Stardust is a modern reaction the that film. The movies more then the books, though that might just be because I haven't read either book in ages (don't worry, I'm now correcting this obvious error). But the way Matthew Vaughn adapted and directed Stardust was obviously a massive homage to Reiner's superior film, and I can't help but imagine that Gaiman was probably well under the elder film's influence when his tale came to him.

Anyway, here is a Game of Thrones mashup with the Grandfather segments of Princess Bride. It's good for a laugh, and would be a terrifying way to spend your afternoon if you were eleven and sick.
