the brothers fish

went to see The Brothers Grimm last night. fun, but rather un-Gilliam-esque, oddly enough. the most interesting parts of the plot -- to me -- were the girls; sadly i s'pose it was more commercially sound to dwell on the juvenile relationship between the brothers. which is not to say that i didn't enjoy the farce of it.

speaking of which, Cavaldi the Italian Guy was either a brilliant role or a shamefully hammy experience. i can't decide.

classic Jonathan Pryce moments though, including a scene that will be gleefully recurring in my head for some time (the "soldier's meal" at the edge of the woods, by which i give away nothing, trust me).

it was a beautifully filmed movie though, very lush, the mirror queen in particular.

ah well. i'll probably get my Gilliam fix from Tideland.

p.s. oldben's favorite part of the movie was Heath Ledger's beard.

5 little fish:

I have not seen the movie yet. But anything with Monica Bellucci in it has my vote. :) Great site.

it's worth seeing, i think, it's a bit of a romp.

the fish is always happy to share.
