Want. Now.

Looks like Terry Gilliam is back in prime form with The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. His last two movies left me wanting (Tideland was okay, but I absolutely ABHORED The Brothers Grimm).

It's also Heath Ledger's final film, and Depp/Farrel/Law stepped in to fill his shoes. Also, it's got Tom Waits as the god-damned (literally!) devil, so it must be good.

I'm very sad when I hear that everyone hated The Brothers Grimm. It is flawed, for sure, but I think it is a fantastic movie in a genre that really doesn't exist anymore. That is, it is like a family-friendly horror movie with a sensibility very much like The Goonies or Labyrinth.
Otherwise I agree - Dr Parnassus looks fantastic and I am very excited to see it.

Side note that I want to share: the comment posting word key is "moister." LOL!

I think you have a point. I definitely wasn't watching the Bros. Grimm with that perspective... and if I remember correctly, I saw it at a drive. I know other films I've seen there and hated then saw again in other formats and thought "that wasn't so bad after all!"

Maybe I should give it a rewatch.
