A simple, hilarious, heartfelt tale of friendship and adventure of the simpleton variety. Plus, it's Irish. What's not to love?
Stressful and intense and beautiful.
The story within the story is clearly the true hero of the movie. I was a little annoyed by the back and forth at first, but eventually all the layers of this movie neatly fall into place.
And it's a great movie for post-viewing discussions. We all had our own theories which we condensed into one common one we all agreed on and even then everyone was adding hidden symbolisms that others had missed.
Holy moly!!!!!!!!!!!!! This one came completely out of left field for me.
Knowing nothing of the movie, I assumed it's just some light fairy tale movie. And it is that, but also so much more. This is like a fairy tale Galore! I swear the guy who wrote this was on more drugs than the guy who wrote Alice in Wonderland (and we all know that guy was tripping balls).
It's all over the place with the story, but it…
I loved this back in the day and it was a subject of many a school yard re-tellings (especially Tarantino's joke).
Features Banderas right in his element, Salma Hayek is gorgeous as ever and this, for me, is probably the highlight of Rodriguez's career. The Spy Kids stuff is not for me and the Machete and Planet Terror stuff got a little too gimmicky for my taste. Sin City was kinda fun though. Desperado, however, is just the perfect blend…
