I was directed by Jones and Gilliam, so it's not fair to credit it to Gilliam.

Terry Jones is a better director when it comes to this sort of movies anyway :P


That's another reason I didn't vote for it. In fact I nearly didn't put it in my list as he was a Python at the time and I was looking at his post-python career as a director.

However I don't agree with your final statement about Jones.

I've only seen Time Bandits. :( I give it a 9/10, it's a little uneven in quality, although I had the same problem when I first saw episodes of Monty Python's Flying Circus.
Tideland sounds interesting, why doesn't anyone like it?

I watched Brothers Grimm a while ago, I give it a 8/10.

It was a bit difficult to watch because there were so many different details and stuff and I wasn't aware if there was a plot at all. The scenery is absolutely brilliant.

Worth watching, but a bit difficult to comprehend.

I won`t rate Holy Grail, ok? (rating is obvious :lol:)
Terry has 3 masterpieces in my opinion:
Fisher King (my favourite) - 10/10
Brazil - 9/10
Tideland 9/10
Then...
Time Bandits, Munchausen and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas - 8/10
12 monkeys - I have to rewatch it
Jabberwocky - very Pythonesque I agree but worse than Monty Python movies - 6/10 (only for lovely Mike and medieval style)
Brothers Grimm - very poor for Gilliam I think, the worst Terry`s movie, didn`t like it at all - 4/10
Going to watch Lost in La Mancha

These are the ones I've seen:

Tideland-8/10 Beautifully twisted, and perfectly told. A touch of not so subtle brilliance from Gilliam
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas-10/10 Tied with Brazil for my favorite Gilliam film. I love Hunter S, and Depp was perfectly directed.
The Adventures of Baron Munchausen-7/10 One of the weaker ones I think, although still charming and with an all star cast
Brazil-10/10 A modern work of art. An amazing triumph of cinema. And some.....pretty funny jokes too :]
The Meaning of Life-8/10 Oddly enough my favorite Python film
Time Bandits-7/10 Liked it, but didn't really. I think I'd have to see it again.
Jabberwocky-8/10 I really liked this. Very subtle humor.
Monty Python and the Holy Grail-10/10 Perfect
