  1. Mohammad Aboomar's rating of the film The Adventures of Baron Munchausen

    It's amazing how this was made in the height of WWII

  2. Jack Hoehn's rating of the film The Adventures of Baron Munchausen

    really uneven but where it shines it really shines!

  3. ZYNAB's rating of the film The Adventures of Baron Munchausen

    i didn't get a second-rate children's movie feel from this at all. i think it's remarkably adult--a meditation on death and the nature of escapism. i might be overestimating it but it reminded me a lot of korda's "private lives of" history films and their sensuality and dry humour--but with eye-popping color and wild fantasy sequences, of course.

  4. Sophia Park's rating of the film The Adventures of Baron Munchausen

  5. Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film The Adventures of Baron Munchausen

    Colorful but hollow take on the Munchausen legend wastes its sumptuous sets and costumes on a slow-paced, talky script that is surprisingly light on imagination. Hans Albers is a bore as the imaginative Baron, and the whole film has the shallow feel of a second-rate children's film. Lacks the manic energy and visual inventiveness of Terry Gilliam's much later - and far superior - film version.
