Can't say I would have appreciated it fully at that time.

But Time Bandits (Gilliam again, right?) was kick ass. I still think it was great although not as great as I remembered (later on). Midgets are worth half a 'star' at least. Nostalgia FTW.

Like Blade Runner, I'll have to go back and make sure I taste the whole experience. I saw Blade Runner 15 times on HBO in 1985 (whatever) but I never had a 'real' boner for it until I was older. Literally.

It seems that there are so many films that you loved as a kid and you see them later and they are God-awful. A few exceptions to his are John Carpenters' The Thing and Escape From New York. Which are probably better than Citizen Kane and The Godfathers 1 and 2 combined. Okay, I know, seriously...certainly better.

Time Bandits is indeed Gilliam and it's a great little film. Cracks my shit up each time, especially David Warner as Evil. "Benson, sweet Benson....so mercifully free from the ravages of intelligence". Love it. Cleese as Robin Hood FTW.

AGREED

I have to admit, I seem to get excited and end up going to all of the "classic series of my youth" movies despite if they look good or terrible (the Aliens vs. Predator movies for example....). At least this looks good, and Bale generally isn't in crap. I'll keep my hopes up.

If only we could get Bale to jump off a cliff.

Any ideas, people? Maybe throwing a new Malick script over the edge?

You're right. Bale was awesome in TDK, and doesn't deserve that ignominious end.

I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm not dissing TDK, I haven't even seen it yet, but fucking #1?

If you never thought the IMDB Top 250 was a joke before though, I mean shit. I never thought I'd see a movie bump the Godfather from #1 there.
