good movie eh?
but I was 12, and 12 year old me bought Five Star albums and went to church, so fuck that guy.
I loved it when I first saw it and still do.
A lot of people think it's dreadful, but they're wrong. The sheer amount of ambition and creativity on display is enough to carry it through.
especially for the reasons above
however it has a shocking continuity error in it when the guys eye patch changes side for half of the film
In this week's Walking Dead the governor had no eye patch on, and then ran out when he heard a little girl about to be eaten by a zombie. He rescued her with the patch back on.
Meaning he prioritised putting the eye patch back on over going for the girl.
eye patch related updates on stuff
Would be great as part of a Sunday afternoon double bill along with Hudson Hawk of films that are derided but actually brilliant...
never been in a bad flick as far as I can remember.
He's also in that "Barbarians at the Gate" which I've heard is pretty good.
Otherwise I agree - he's even good in the commercial/blockbuster stuff he does...
And incredibly, even he is bad in it :(
I, err...like the theme tune.
I like the preposterousness of the plot, the action's great and it's got a hot Bond girl who isn't a simpering twat.
saw this for the first time recently (weird I know) and it didn't do much for me. Looked amazing and it's always nice to see Gilliam's visions on screen and I know the whole aesthetic is of tedious bureaucracy but it was just so dreary. Loved with my head, but not with my heart.
someone who might appreciate my tattoo! (Photo taken the day after I got it, my arm hair has grown back since then)
It's one of my all-time favourite films. It's beautiful, inventive, charming and densely packed with fun, throwaway allusions to classical iconography and literature. The image of the ship landing on the moon is pretty much my favourite film sequence ever.
