The Adventures of Baron Munchausen - (1988 movie) poster

A crazy old man appears in a war-torn city to correct the misconceptions of the retelling of his adventures.

It's a great fluff fantasy movie. I didn't see it back in the day, so it has no nostalgia for me. Left with what it is at face value, I can't recommend it except for people who like the old 80s style of kids' practical effects fantasy movies. Think The Dark Crystal - (1982 movie) or The Neverending Story - (1984 movie).

A man struggles with a split personality disorder, turning to an unlikely group of young women for counseling. Haha, just kidding it's a kidnapping-horror movie.

Amazing acting, good writing, good all around. It's contained, straightforward and engaging. It was assembled well enough that I didn't take many notes.

A government assassin learns he has been cloned by a rogue lab bent on raising an army of perfect soldiers.

A fair movie. It brings nothing new or interesting, and has generally uninspired writing and action. Thinking back on it, it does seem derivative of so many other movies.

A boy is abused, gets hit on the head, is institutionalized and has a daydream.

Raises the bar for acting with this character. A good movie, but definitely not traditional. Riveting without a particularly obvious thread. It could have been a whole lot better, but it would have needed to delve into the true and far darker roots of the main character; his mother, and you can't do that because she's a woman.

After watching this movie I just realized I didn't see the earlier one. Whoops.

Kids, the only survivors of a shipwreck, survive on a paradise island.

It's interesting, but not great. I stopped just before reading the chapter "A View to a Death" because it had been boring up to that point, and I could tell it was going to spiral into stupidity without a proper lead and reason for it.

A military man of small renown and great skill is swept up into a conflict that engulfs his nation in war, driving a wedge between himself, his people and his love.

A movie the likes of which I've never seen and doubt I ever will again.
