Let’s see what Tim thought of this movie:
Time Bandits (1981)
But robbing history? Stealing from Napoleon, Agamemnon, even Satan just to live it up? That’s priceless. And that’s what 6 dwarfs (God’s ex-shrub-makers) and an unwitting boy do.
Unfortunately, Robin Hood robs them blind (gotta love the irony)…
Two of Robin Hood’s men are arm wrestling and suddenly Guy A rips Guy B’s arm completely off and asks who else wants to arm wrestle next. The best part is that, while he’s asking, he tosses Guy B’s arm into a basket of arms.
And of all the devils, demons, Satans, and Lucifers in film – none top David Warner as the personification of Evil.
