This is a dazzling and visually stunning fantasy film that takes you on the wildest ride and gives you a lot of fun moments with an impressive ensemble cast and a fantasy epic that puts Speilberg and Lucas to shame.
I always wonder from where Terry Gilliam does get his crazy ideas. Anyway, this film is one of my favorites: Maybe it got a little bit rusty over the time but it's still very entertaining. Mike Moran did a good job in writing a score with stylistic different music for each episode; and I still like George Harrsion's songs.
Considering that each of the little people had a counterpart in the Monty Python troupe, this can be considered a Python film. "The nice one, Fidgit, is said to represent Michael Palin; the self-appointed leader, Randall, John Cleese; the acerbic one, Strutter, Eric Idle; the quiet one, Og, Graham Chapman; the noisy rebel, Wally, Terry Jones; and the nasty, filth-loving one, Vermin, Terry Gilliam."
I had never heard of this film before, but the other day I came across it & I immediately fell in love with it! Right away you can tell it's a Terry Gilliam film, he has an imagination like no one else. One of my favorite things about Gilliam is his ability to create such vibrant worlds! Also as a Star Wars fan it was cool to see Kenny Baker. This is an incredibly underrated film that everyone can enjoy!
