Marketing Quotes/Taglines: “The Spellbinding Adventures of ‘Gulliver’s Travels’!”
If I ran the Marketing: “You Know What? FUCK GULLIVER.”
What the Fuck is Going On: This is a film featuring some great Ray Harryhausen work but my inner child died in an apartment fire so I’m not all whipped into froth by the whimsy of Jonathan Swift’s tale of giant men in long stockings. Sorry. There’s some innovative stuff here and there are moments where the classic tale of Gulliver and Lilliputians and giant rivers of golden urine wiping out villages is quite engaging but at the end of the day all Gulliver is to me is a naked Gamera. Scary as shit because he’s HUGE and a poorly made latte away from fucking shit up in grand fashion.
If I were in Gulliver’s shoes I’d have been picking Liliput bones from my stool in no time.
