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 standard broken-family Disney movie, but with magical thinking.

God damn this is a low-effort piece of shit.

As part of a delaying tactic for an internal power struggle at the Central Intelligence Agency, an everyman is pointed out as a pawn to be followed as a delaying tactic.

A fantastic, classic, movie. It's simple and with a light tone. I don't think it's particularly recommendable now, but I still like it.

Two young losers somehow make a hot woman who has magical powers.

One of the fundamental parts of this movie involves some really terrifyingly-old technology. Even back then it was comical. If that can be excused, the rest of this holds up perfectly.

So with that out of the way, I can highly recommend this. I know my nostalgia must cloud my judgement, but I still think it would be a fun movie for a first-timer. It's bubblegum.
