Welcome to Reel Britannia-a very British podcast about very British films....with the occasional hint of professionalism.
Episode 050 - Time Bandits (1981)
‘Honestly, Trevor, if you were half a man you would've gone in there after the blender.’
Join Scott and Steven for their review of the Terry Gilliam directed Time Bandits from 1981.
Young history buff Kevin (Craig Warnock) can scarcely believe it when six dwarfs emerge from his closet one night. Former employees of the Supreme Being (Ralph Richardson), they've purloined a map charting all of the holes in the fabric of time and are using it to steal treasures from different historical eras. Taking Kevin with them, they variously drop in on Napoleon (Ian Holm), Robin Hood (John Cleese) and King Agamemnon (Sean Connery) before the Supreme Being catches up with them.
