[VIDEO] Time Bandits

admars (Elite) posted this on Tuesday, 9th July 2024, 17:39

I saw a meme the other day which said something along the lines of "wouldn't it be good if Hollywood remakes were of films that were a good idea, but executed badly, rather than the originals were good"

sounds good, but this could be fun, and interesting to make a tv series of a film, and does remind me me of What Pirates did in the Shadows :)

No... they will ruin the original, one of my favourites

Will it have the humour and the fantastic imagination of Terry Gilliam with that Monty Python style. I think not going by the trailer.

I hope it's better than the humourless trailer, but I doubt it.

First VHS I ever rented and not seen it since.

That trailer is not encouraging

you are aware that the original will still exist, and you can still watch it, so won't be ruined? I don't think anyone is going to go George Lucas on it ;)

I've not seen the original in years, the missus (she loves it) watched it with one of the kids recently and she enjoyed it.

i thought it looked fun

Not gonna hate you for that.
I've never seen the second Italian Job and have no wish to.
Doesn't mean I can't still enjoy not just blowing the bloody doors off.

Have you seen the original?

Italian Job or Time bandits? Both

As it happens the first time I was aware Time Bandits existed was was when the very last shot (Mum? Dad?) was on a VHS recording of something that was on Channel 4 after the movie. Wasn't until several years later I caught it again in full. It was ok. Not the bestest movie ever but certainly enjoyable.

Interesting points just realised - actually shot in 2022 at the same time as Our Flag Means Death, and also the first name of the main kid IRL is Kal-El.
