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.

Since I have always been interested in Terry Gilliam’s work, I was really eager to check this flick. Basically, it is another cult classic directed by Gilliam but, to be honest, I wasn’t completely blown away by the whole thing.

" Intrigued by history but neglected by his parents, Kevin, an eleven-year-old schoolboy, gets the chance to make his dream come true when a band of six time-travelling dwarfs appears out of thin air in his bedroom. Having stolen the Supreme Being's one-of-a-kind map of time and space, the audacious time-bandits whisk Kevin off on an exciting journey to the depths of history, skipping from one era to another. Now, to further complicate matters, the dangerous arch-rival known as the Evil Geni"

Pros and Cons of Films: Vol. 1 (121 movies items)

"Pros: It’s a very fun, movie that kids will enjoy (that being said the movie is filled with nightmare fuel). The Time Bandits. The off kilter humour, send up of history. The effects work. John Cleese as Robin Hood, and Sean Connery. The visuals, are something else. David Warner as Evil Genius The theme music by George Harrison and Mike Moran."

"25.1.2021 Sinänsä Time Banditsissa ei ole mitään varsinaista vikaa, mikä tekisi siitä huonon tai edes keskinkertaisen teoksen. Ongelma on se, että tämäntyyppinen koko perheen kohelluselokuva sinfoniaorkesterin pimpelipom-pöhinämusiikilla vaan on genrenä niin vastenmielinen ja luotaantyöntävä, ettei näemmä edes Terry Gilliam kykene tekemään moisen katsomisesta nautinnollista kokemusta."

"There's the film's ending, I am not going to give it away, but given everything that the main character goes through in the movie, it's the most harshest thing imaginable to happen to a kid in a movie. Buy hey, the parents were warned not to touch it."
