Time Bandits


This is the trippiest movie I have ever seen. Truly unique in the sense that nothing that happens is expected. The ending can be depressing, but only if you are insane enough to take the actual movie seriously. I can honestly say that after seeing this film I will never view the world in the same way...indeed now I am afraid of it.

My favorite film of all time. Like all Gilliam movies it's deeply profound and utterly silly. For a so-called 'kid's flick' to have such adult themes is awesome. But as a piece of escapism it's completely believable. The universe really IS this nuts!

Note for eager beavers : Horseflesh (map-maker and dead ex-Bandit) can be seen several times scurrying about Evil's grotto. At one point (just as the Bandits are captured near the end of the film) he makes a very rude gesture to his ex-friends. When you've seen Time Bandits 19273 times, you pick up these little details....

I loved it, and so did (and still does) my now 17 year-old son. A rare intelligent, existentiial comedy. I'm a Python junkie, and it's good to see the tradition carried on by the ex-cast. I was particularly drawn to the last scenes with the "Supreme Being". Hillarious, and deeply meaningful. I was very touched - in more ways than one.

I really liked it. If you have the DVD, see the trailer, its funny. But really, this is a very good movie thats now in my top5.

One of my fav films. My kids love it and so do my grandkids. One nice piece at the end worth mentioning: As the camera panns upwards from Kevin, the smoke is going DOWN the chimney of his house.

I love the John Cleese in this movie....

It alone may be the greatest cinemagraphic climax of all time
