Time Bandits

9 months, 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.

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

Moviewatcher122's 2014 Film Diary: August (28 movies items)

"August 16 "Is it all ready? Right. Come on then. Back to creation. We mustn't waste any more time. They'll think I've lost control again and put it all down to evolution." This was a really creative movie. It had a very original premise and the movie really had fun with it. It's a very entertaining movie and it was pretty funny at times too. It doesn't cross the line of greatness and it's far from Gilliam's best, but it's still a very good movie that I would like to watch multiple times."

" "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."

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.

"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"
