I'm calling it a good movie. Anyone want  to discuss it? 

Only the country that brought us dr.  Who could have created it...

The director is actually from the USA.

One of my friend's wife's mentioned she loved Terry Gilliam's stuff, so I bought her a copy of Time Bandits. Little did I know she had a crippling fear of short people.

It's a strange movie, but it's a very enjoyable one.  No description really does it justice.

I LOVED The Time Bandits when I was a kid. Used to imagine that a bunch of British dwarves were using my room as their interdimensional gateway. I haven't seen it for at least 30 years, so I don't remember too much of it, apart from Evil saying that God made weird choices like 'nipples for men', and the Bandits singing Me And My Shadow. I also have the novelization.

I have it on DVD, will check back in after I've watched it. I might be very disappointed, or I'll have a wonderful time remembering my childhood. Wish me luck!

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
