Today’s IMDB Top 250 Guest Review comes from Eric of The IPC. He’s already done a bonkers review of Se7en (which you can read HERE) and now he’s back to give us another review in typical Eric-style. 😉 Thanks so much for joining in on this IMDB thing, Eric! Now let’s see what he has to say about Twelve Monkeys, IMDB rank 180 out of 250…
Plot Synopsis: (via IMDB)
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.
12 MONKEYS – 1995
We’ve all seen 12 MONKEYS, right? RIGHT??? RIGHT???!!!??? Well, since we’ve all seen it at least 30 times, I recently constructed a highly safe, comfortable, humane movie theater and screened it for twelve monkeys who hadn’t seen it. Using my high tech and professional recording devices, let’s see what they had to say.
Subject 1: Babboo Jones
That was pretty good, Meester. That was made by Terry Gilliam?? The Monty Python guy?? Not bad, I need to see some more of his shit. Can I get my fucking bananas now???
Subject 2: Peepers “Stinky Butt” Brown
They “live underground like worms?????” YIKES!! Also – LOL!!! “You are the most bootiful woman I have ever seen” HAHAHAHAHA!!! Even I can spell better than that I’m a shit eating monkey!!!!
Subject 3: Johnny “Stinkfinger” Harris
Remember when Brad Pitt was cool?? Remember when he’d do character stuff like this?? Now he’s all ‘I’m fuckin’ Brad Pitt!! Look at my woman’s hair!!!” and shit. What a dope. OOOPS, sorry, just farted.
Subject 4: Daniel Isaacs (no relation)
Time Travel, eh? Interesting. I like how it’s new for them and it’s not always correct. Hey – was that Arthur Dent?? The original one. From the TV show.
Subject 5: Raul Buena Vista De La Munoz
What the fuck is that smell coming from the break room??? It smells like broccoli and SHIT. Excuse me for a minute.
Subject 6: Caitlynn “Like A Whisper” Simpson-Bonilla
I like how we had to look at Bruce Willis’ butt. Not once but TWICE! MEEEEEEOOOOOW PUSSYCAT!!!
Subject 7: (name redacted)
DID HE JUST EAT A FUCKING SPIDER??!?!!!??????!!!!
Subject 8: Lisa “The Angel” Scheueczk
I really liked how it ended with the ki – DID I JUST HEAR A GUNSHOT?????!?!
(audible screams from outside screening room)
I have blood on my hands…. I HAVE BLOOD ON MY HANDS!!!!!!
Subject 9: Phillip “The Distance” Fudge (that’s really his last name)
“The boy is hiding in a barn” CLASSIC!!
Subject 10: Jeffrey “Bleeding Gums” Johnson
This is a total Sci-Fi classic – all the way! Great acting and story telling! I’m VERY hungry. VERY.
Subject 11: Jimmy “The Schnozz” Durante
Where’s the fucking food??? HA CHA CHA CHA CHA CHA.
NOTE: At this point the subjects were becoming unruly due to lack of feeding. The Alpha soon took charge.
Subject 12: BRIAN @ HARD TICKET TO HOME VIDEO
EAT SHIT ISAACS!!! HERE COMES A KNUCKLE BALL!!!! (flings a handful of fresh poop)
And with that, the session ended and I was left with quite a mess to clean up.
**Terry Gilliam has called 12 Monkeys “part of a dystopian satire trilogy or Orwellian triptych” begun with Brazil and ending with The Zero Theorem. Without meaning to, I guess Eric & I have recently reviewed this “trilogy”. You can read his review of Brazil HERE and my review of The Zero Theorem HERE.
