Time Bandits

1 month, 3 weeks ago at Feb 25 22:25
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.

Kanna's Facetious and Irrelevant Movie Diary 2014 (37 movies items)

" "You will like this movie because I'm James Bond errr Sean Connery" So I really like Terry Gilliam as a director but this really missed the mark for me. Wasn't bad but I felt disappointed but that may be due to expecting too much."

“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.

Portlander's Movie Log - December, 2013 (32 movies items)

" Watched December 10th - Netflix Streaming - Rewatch "Do be careful, don't lose any of that stuff, that's concentrated evil - one drop of that could turn you all into hermit crabs." - Supreme Being Time Bandits has always been one of my favorite films - it was like a twisted, cracked modern version of the Wizard of Oz for the 80's - it is imaginative, inventive, funny and very entertaining and I enjoyed all of the time travel and colorful characters - plus where else can you find Sean Connery"

"02/09/2013 Oikein herttaista ja hauskaa seikkailua, mikä päälimmäiseksi jätti hyvän mielen. Pari epäjohdonmukaisuutta pääsee haittaamaan pienesti, mutta sananparsi "ihan kiva" on enemmän kuin sopiva kuvaamaan tätä noin muuten. Surrealistiset vivahteet ja aikamatkustelu ja historian uudelleenkokeminen tuntuu jännältä pelkästään kotikatsomossakin. Monty Pythonin poppoota piipahtelee pienemmissä rooleissa elokuvassa ja parhaimmillaan elokuvan huumori on hyvää Pythonia. Lisäks"
