The Princess Bride—the epic cult classic that had such a place in the childhood hearts of so many—turns 25 today. To celebrate its birthday, the film has just been released for the first time on Blu Ray (you can nab one here!), and we're reminded yet again that the era of the princess is upon us this year.
