"Wiping out the human race? That's a great idea. That's great. But more of a long-term thing. I mean, first we have to focus on more immediate goals."

Brad Pitt's character, Jeffrey Goines, I sure won't forget. He's insane, delusional and psycho.. exactly what he is meant to be. This flick is not your average Bruce Willis movie, nor is it something that Terry Gilliam always comes up... read more

''There's the television. It's all right there - all right there. Look, listen, kneel, pray. Commercials! We're not productive anymore. We don't make things anymore. It's all automated. What are we *for* then? We're consumers, Jim. Yeah. Okay, okay. Buy a lot of stuff, you're a good citizen. But if you don't buy a lot of stuff, if you don't, what are you then, I ask you? What?

Ok, so as usual Bruce Willis did a really good job at playing his part. I like the plot and it did have that mysterious kind of sci-fi feel but there was just something missing. The first thing I noticed is the crappy choice of music, which made the movie confuse you at times. The action sequences had some sort of goofy comedic soundtrack. Is this bad for the character or am I spouse to laugh? I t... read more

Description: In a future world devastated by disease, a convict is sent back in time to gather information about the man-made virus that wiped out most of the human population on the planet. An intense film about time travel, this sci-fi entry was directed by Terry Gilliam, a member of the comedy troupe Monty Python. The film stars Bruce Willis as James Cole, a prisoner of the state in the year 2035 who can earn parole if he agrees to travel back in time and thwart a devastating plague. The virus has wiped out most of the Earth's population and the remainder live underground because the air is poisonous. Returning to the year 1990, six ye ... (more)

" Looking to receive a pardon for his crimes, a convict from the future agrees to let scientists send him back into time in order to collect information that would hopefully help to prevent the world from a planet scale of diseased destruction. Information about a terrorist organization known as the Army of the 12 Monkeys. A task that proves that when dealing with an extremist group from the past via a not-so-perfect method of time-travel, 12 Monkeys is no barrel of monkeys.* With good performa"

"Re-watch - Dec. 5th I've been itching to revisit 12 Monkeys for several months now given the present world state, but kept holding off for no clear reason. I think, however, that watching it in December makes the most sense anyway given the winter setting and the fact the events seem to mostly take place in this month. I don't have a whole lot new to add to the conversation around this film, but I will say that the ending hit me a lot differently this time around. Just a thought: I'll have to "

@Zuraka, that's actually an interesting remark. In my opinion, the weird soundtrack (a typical Gilliam trademark) actually enhanced the sense of confusion experienced by the main character and it w

" Notes: This movie is probably Terry Gilliam's most successful feature, at least financially speaking. Fortunately, it happens to be a really good movie as well. If I remember it correctly, I saw it twice when it came out and I thought the whole thing was just spellbinding. Like most of the movies dealing with time travel, many things didn't make much sense but Gilliam didn't even try to rationalize what was going on whereas lesser movies would spend a terrible amount of time trying to convince"
