DAVIE & GOLIMYR is a re-telling of the story of David and Goliath from the Bible. The story told using stop-motion animation and is set within the fantasy world of James Christensen. The tale begins with a storyteller telling the story to one of his helpers. The island kingdom of the Zites is preparing for an attack by a terrible giant named Golimyr. Golimyr has already destroyed several other kingdoms and King Sullic knows the Golimyr will soon come to Zite. A proclamation is sent throughout the …

The David and Goliath aspect of this movie not overt and it can be taken on it own merits as a off-beat stop motion film. The story was okay if not overly engaging, but the creative use of stop motion and surreal world depicted kept my kids and I watching all of the way through. We even played it again later! I guess it you could say it had a Terry Gilliam feel to it that I liked...I was reminded vaguely of the movie Time Bandits.    Obviously this is not a movie for everyone …

..Says my kids. They didn't enjoy this at all and so did I. The Bible tale gets a fantasy makeover in this stop-motion animated feature.The Old Testament tale of David and Goliath is given a new lease on life in this unusually colorful feature.

The film's look is inspired by the playfully eccentric work of fantasy/religious artist James C. Christensen. His imagery blends …

Ok, so lets take this into account before I evaluate the value of "Davie & Golimyr": I am a twenty-two year old male, and this movie was not made with me in mind. For goodness sakes, this is a stop-motion retelling of the Biblical tale of David and Goliath that has gone straight to video. The biggest star in it is John Schneider of "Dukes of Hazard" fame (and for younger fans, of "Smallville" fame). The movie comes in a single disk, cardboard sleeved DVD that includes a set of free stickers from …

Loosely based on the Biblical story of David and Goliath, "Davie and Golimyr" takes place in a village inhabited by the Zites. Young Davie wants nothing more than to be a soldier, but because he's so little, he's laughed out of the arena when he tries to become one in a contest against a gear-driven giant. When a real giant shows up in the small village, however, no one is willing to challenge him. No one except for Davie, who uses his faith in God to face Golimyr in a one on one competition for …
