Time Bandits

Query: would eccentric be the best word to describe Terry Gilliam’s films?

Sometimes to a fault, and sometimes to joyous effect, Gilliam’s work is always distinctly his. And Time Bandits is a combination of both his best and worst tendencies. The episodic film is only engaging in small parts, a total bore in others, but consistently trying to create something original.

"06.07.2015 Yritin katsoa tämän jo muutama viikko sitten, mutta koska postimies oli runnonut kotelon paskaksi, jonka takia levyyn oli tullut naarmu, jäi elokuva kokematta. Sain uuden kappaleen, josta voikin kiittää zavvin hyvää asiakaspalvelua. Itse elokuva olikin varsin vauhdikas ja täynnä sekoilua oleva seikkailukomedia. Blu-ray näytti hyvältä ja Sean Connery oli lopussa palomies."

Indeed, like many other movies coming from this interesting director, I thought that it was visually impressive but I actually had a rather hard time to connect with the story. I don't know, I guess, the story was not bad but, somehow I didn’t think it was really entertaining and I was rather bored from time to time while watching this flick. On the other hand, it has been a while since I have seen this movie so I should definitely re-watch it at some point to make up my mind for good about the damned thing. 4 years later, Gilliam would come with up ‘Brazi” read more

Time Bandits

“Query: would eccentric be the best word to describe Terry Gilliam’s films?

Sometimes to a fault, and sometimes to joyous effect, Gilliam’s work is always distinctly his. And Time Bandits is a combination of both his best and worst tendencies. The episodic film is only engaging in small parts, a total bore in others, but consistently trying to create something original.

The story follows a young boy as he joins a group of dwarfs who slip into various times and steal goods from each of them. Along the way he meets a cavalcade of stars dressing up as various historical and mythical figures. All the while they’re trying to escape from the Supreme Being and find their ship. It’s a bit of a mess to be honest, but it does offer up minor pleasures.

"Like much of Terry Gilliam's work, Time Bandits is brimming with a truly bizarre and unique brand of cinematic imagination. The settings and costumes are totally on par, syncing well with its kooky sense of humor. Nothing about it is particularly profound - in fact, the entire concept itself could be rather forgettable. It is, however, worthwhile entertainment, and very fun. "

A Complete review of Terry Gilliam's work (17 movies items)

" Cast : John Cleese, Sean Connery, Shelley Duvall, Ian Holm, Michael Palin, Jim Broadbent What was it about? A young boy accidently joins a band of dwarves as they jump from time-period to time-period looking for treasure to steal. My two cents: It is another cult classic by Mr Gilliam. Personally, even though it was visually impressive, I didn't really enjoy it very much. I don't know, the story was allright but it was not really entertaining and I was bored pretty often watching this flic"
