Classic film, great presentation-- however, features are few, and the resolution is 1080i. Not sure why the distributor would cheap out in such a fashion.

I purchased this on the strength of my love of Monty Python. But, in spite of a great cast, terrific acting, and good production values (for its day!), for me, the movie fell flat. There were a few chuckles, but more often heard was, "This must have cost them a fortune!"

I bought this as a gift for my brother who thought at the time it was the greatest movie of all time. Have to admit it brought back a lot of memories and things we have forgotten. Sure it is old and campy but great if you wish to review movies of that genre.

Format: DVD
In case some of the other reviewers are confused, this film has been presented in the aspect ratio that the director intended it to be in. Yes, the VHS edition shows "more of the frame", but the film was shot with the intention of "matting out" the top and bottom of the screen for theatrical distribution. Therefore in the VHS "full-screen" version, you are only seeing "more" of what the director DOESN'T WANT YOU TO SEE.
Although I understand the frustration of those who are used to seeing the "TV" version, this transfer preserves the integrity of the film as a work of art. That may sound pretensious, but as someone who has much respect for Auteurs like Terry Gilliam, I'm sure I come off as pretensious most of the time.
Oh yeah, this film is also EXCELLENT, but it's still no BRAZIL.
PS: MOST films, with the exception of those shot in Anamorphic or Super 35, are shot in full-frame and then matted for projection. The stuff that the letterboxing "blocks out" is, for the most part, junk. Of course, there are exceptions. Such as when a filmmaker wants the frame to look good in a theatre as well as on television. See Kubrik's "Eyes Wide Shut" (co-written by Frederic Raphael) for a good example of this.

Format: DVD
As one would expect of a Criterion release, the DVD of "Time Bandits" is an absolute pleasure, from the clean film transfer to the many delightful added features.
The production scrapbook is a treasure, along with the commentary by Gilliam and Palin. These features truly enrich one's appreciation for the film; not only do they lavish praise on the actors playing the "dwarves" (who, in retrospect, did nothing less than a heroic job), but also reveal many of the clever tricks that allowed them to create such a sumptuously beautiful film for the cost of Speilberg's monthly catering bill. Compare this film to expensive clunkers like "Tron" (which came out a year later!) to appreciate the extent of Gilliam's craft. Cleese's description of his day's work is howlingly funny, and David Warner is generous and wryly amusing. The now-grown Craig Warnock is not particularly eloquent, however, and it's hard to tell if he's joking about the film scarring him psychologically!
The trailer is simply awful, after a promising start, but it's indicative of AVCO's cluelessness about how to market such a fresh and original film. They tried to pass it off as Python style comedy, safe for kiddies and fun for grow-ups. In fact, it's nothing of the kind - it's a dangerous and rigorous film that one may wish to keep out of the hands of small children.
Despite it's vague resemblance to "The Wizard of Oz" told upside down (or inside out?), "Time Bandits" is not a typical (modern) children's film. It has an old-fashioned Grimm-ness, with creatures dying nasty, sweaty deaths and even "good" characters behaving quite badly at times.

It's not officially a Monty Python movie, but was directed by a Python (Terry Gilliam), and starring two more Pythons (John Cleese and Michael Palin) and thus has inescapable ties to the classic Monty Python artistic form. The movie is entirely silly and involves a young boy that gets mixed up with a group of dwarves stealing from famous people across time. Was a lot of fun!

If you want to know about British humor, get this film! It is full of surprises, and low key humor, in the best British tradition! The bad guys are not only bad, they are bad at being bad! Evil buffoons abound! And the good guys? Well, they're bad too! I like just about everything in this film, I can't think of a scene that wasn't appealing in some way. There is a new story at every twist and turn, if YOU don't like something, just wait 10 minutes! The end is just insane, and after everything seems lost, good times return! Watch this movie a few times to catch all you missed the first time!

Sean Connery and Michael Palin starring together? who would ever have imagined that? although Sean Connery's role is a very small one he excells as usual, And Shelly Duvall...appearing in one of her very earliest movies. Very funny.
