“Gulliver’s Travels” (2010)



Someday i’ll have to stop seeing films like this. Every 2 hours i spend watching stuff like this is 2 hours i don’t spend watching something that’s really worthy. On the other hand, if you’re a serious viewer, you’ll have to have your dose of ordinary stuff. It’s a good exercise to understand why things are bad, i think, many times much harder than knowing why a gem is so good.

This is pretty trivial and simple as far as this: a film deliberately tied up in every convention for the romantic comedy genre these days. Over that, it’s a film where Black (a talented guy) is free to explore all of his slapstick and gestural moves we already know too well by now.

But this is remotely related to an incredible book, a very important work in the story of literature. It deals with parallel worlds, multiple realities, physical transformation of the world, a kind of mental flexibilty remarkable for its day. It’s mind-blowing in its own corner, and you should spend time with it. This film is as lazy and useless and as much a hack as Black’s character: it quotes the stuff but does absolutely nothing with it. Every possible interesting thing is a chewed product coming from other stuff.

My opinion: 1/5
