Terry Gilliam is one the most compelling and frustrating animators out there. I first encountered him when CBS aired Time Bandits as a movie of the week in the mid-80s. I also saw The Adventures of Baron Munchausen thanks to Los Angeles television station KTLA's impressive weekend film programs. His movies are incredible visual journeys, […]
By Phil Harris Frank Herbert's Dune has made a couple of trips to screen in its time with David Lynch's questionable all style, no substance and completely inappropriate character version; proving that you simply couldn't make a novel of that size into a two hour film and the more interesting Frank Herbert's Dune mini-series which […]
By Brandon Engel While Terry Gilliam may have gotten his start in the comedy troupe Monty Python, he has become something of an authority when it comes to dark, genre filmmaking. All of Terry Gilliam's early films had at least some elements of science-fiction or fantasy stories, including Time Bandits and Brazil, but he became […]
The Paddington movie, out in the US tomorrow, came out in the UK at the end of the November, and I managed to find time to take the kids. I was expecting a fun movie, instead I got the kind of film which is going to live inside all our hearts and when you see it years […]
Good Omens, the book by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, has long been talked about as a possible movie or television adaptation as far back as 2002 when it was being championed by Terry Gilliam. At the time rumors included involvement from Johnny Depp and the late Robin Williams. Most of the funding was in […]
By Jeb D. When it was announced earlier this year that there would be a live theatrical broadcast of the final performance of the Monty Python "farewell" shows from London's O2 arena, people that know me assumed I'd be first in line for tickets. My siblings and I were what you might call "first generation" […]
The Zero Theorem is the latest film from Terry Gilliam of Monty Python and the director of Brazil and Twelve Monkeys. It was released last March in the U.K. but is finally set for a U.S. release on August 19th. The movie stars Christoph Waltz and Melanie Thierry and is said to be about a […]
Who is the man in the hat? Anybody know?
It's been looking like another run at The Man Who Killed Don Quixote has been coming together, and Terry Gilliam has gone so far as to share a start date and concept art.
Dreamworks' latest is out in the UK today. From the director of The Lion King.
When the porn parody version of Quicksilver looks better than the actual movie version… So what have you been reading this week? Well, top of the list, that's what happens when Terry Gilliam links to Bleeding Cool on his Facebook page… I also reckon the Geoff Johns story will get some extra play later this […]
There’s one important line of dialogue in this trailer.
It's a deliberate homage, I'm sure.
You simply cannot have missed the news that Monty Python are reuniting for a live show next Summer, but there's more.
"I think this is the seventh time. Lucky seven, maybe," says the director.
Video now removed. Sorry.
Earlier this morning, I watched Arrow Video's new Blu-ray restoration of Time Bandits. I was rapt. Again. I think this is the best of all "family films," in all of cinema. It's overflowing with imagination, slick with wit as much as it's grubby with detail. There's so much to enjoy, on viewing after viewing, and […]
Terry Gilliam the director, and the actor, introduces The Zero Theorem to the Comic-Con crowds.
Not a Saturday morning about twelve badass monkeys with special skills, one in a wheelchair, one in a skirt. Thankfully.
If you saw the leaked trailer or reel that were doing the rounds last month, you'll know that this film is certainly very distinctively designed.
