Terry Gilliam's return to form?

I just ran accross the website for TIDELAND and it looks really promising.

There's a trailer if you can figure out the navigation of the website, which is pretty cool in itself.

I'm excited to see Tidelands.

I actually kind of liked The Brother's Grimm. It was kind of fun. I think it helped that I saw it after reading piles of crappy reviews, cause I thought, hey this isn't that bad.

I will see a Gilliam film everytime, no matter what. I love Gilliam for the same reason I love Coppola. It's not that his films are that great, although some are, but his films are his soul. If Coppola were to attempt a film about suicide, I wouldn't put it past him to try it himself. If Gilliam's vision involves the impossible, he will attempt the impossible for better or worse (See Lost in La Mancha). I wouldn't sit through The Brothers Grimm again for any money, but lets take a snapshot of the plot. Folklore collectors and con artists, Jake and Will Grimm, travel from village to village pretending to protect townsfolk from enchanted creatures. They are put to the test, however, when they encounter a real magical curse in a haunted forest, requiring genuine courage. Gilliam is a genuinly courageous filmmaker among many con-artists. I will always be excited for his next film.

drew- loved your comment.
there's always those moments in his films that are just bizarrely awesome and it's fun to see his movies if not just for that factor.
