  1. I am reminded of the movie The Man Who Would Be King…. everything started off with great promise and ended in a world of Tears

  2. Starring Professor Lupin before he was Professor Lupin, David Thewlis. Nice to see that he had a career before Harry Potter.

    EDIT: Weirdo dwarf looks even weirder than I thought.

  3. If you're interested in this movie and/or the actors and directors, etc. you should watch the documentary "Lost Souls: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley's Island of Dr. Moreau". It's crazy how f'd up the making of this movie actually was.May look at Brando and Kilmer differently, that's for sure.

  4. I watched this movie not too long ago, knowing the backstory behind it and having seen Island of Lost Souls at least five times. To me, it was working fine… until the title character finally shows up. I was put off by its shift from Darwin allegory to slasher film.
    I thought Marlon Brando seemed detached (I'm guessing that his daughter's then-recent suicide didn't help matters). I don't think that either Val Kilmer or David Thewlis were up to their roles. I think John Frankenheimer was the wrong choice to take over the director's chair.
    I do, however, give props to Stan Winston's makeup work (though some of the CGI looks like a mockbuster of Island of Lost Souls) and some of the performances of the actors in them (except for that Mimi-Me prototype).
    All things considered, I just think this could and should have been so much better.

  5. It is exactly like now in 2020 where the psychopaths are arranging microchip via vaccines to human bodies with excuse of a fictitious virus .

  6. What? Dude this movie was called the island of Dr. MONreau”

    What happened to the N in “Moreau”? It doesn’t even flow as nice. Wtf?
