The film that established Terry Gilliam as more than just Monty Python’s resident animator, this delightfully inventive children’s fantasy is about young Kevin (Craig Warnock) who finds himself travelling through holes in the space-time continuum in the company of half a dozen fractious dwarfs.

Along the way, he encounters Agamemnon (Sean Connery), Robin Hood (John Cleese), Napoleon (Ian Holm) and winds up as a passenger on the Titanic, although not necessarily in that order. But is this just random entertainment laid on for history fan Kevin’s benefit, or part of a wider struggle between the forces of good (Ralph Richardson) and evil (David Warner)?

At the time, this was a rare example of a small-budget British film successfully taking on American blockbusters. Now, it's a much-loved fantasy classic bursting with inspired images and ideas: Gilliam and co-writer Michael Palin (who also appears) are clearly enjoying themselves as much as their audience.

Yes it has been remastered and it looks spectacular. The steelbook has the original poster art so is the best edition of this film to date, in my opinion. Criterion released their own copy of this Arrow-supervised master and it's still not as good for extras (though the film transfer itself is almost identical).

£5.99 is a sheer bargain. For me, who owned a crappy DVD copy of it years ago, it was almost like seeing a different film!

(BTW in that DVDBeaver review, on the third-to-last shot comparison I think they have the Optimum screenshot in the wrong place)

Heat added.

If you have never seen this film, then hold on to your mind! Also if you enjoyed this try this classic film - IMDB

Contains possibly the funniest line in any movie ever...

Robin Hood: And you're a robber too. How long have you been a robber?
Strutter: Four foot one.
Robin Hood: Good lord! Jolly good. Four foot one? Well that-that-that is-is- a long time, isn't it?


Maybe its just me, but it kills me every time I hear it.

will I have this on Christmas day?

Oh Ry In Eye Ay - Oh Ry In Eye Ay
Oh Ry In Eye Key Ooh Lay
Ka Lay Ooh Lau Ee - Oh Ry In Eye Ay
Sya Te Lee Ay Vee Show
Midnight sunshine silent thunder
Sky as black as day
Only a dream away
Oh Ry In Eye Ay - Oh Ry In Eye Ay
Oh Ry In Eye Key Ooh Lay
Ka Lay Ooh Lau Ee - Oh Ry In Eye Ay
Sya Te Lee Ay Vee Show
Waking while you're still deep sleeping
Finding you're not here
Watching a dream appear
Tumbling through a thousand centuries
You don't know where you'll land
It's so dark in mythology
Treasures of history to be found
Near the legends of time
All the handiworks remain there
Only a dream away
Oh Ry In Eye Ay - Oh Ry In Eye Ay
Oh Ry In Eye Key Ooh Lay
Ka Lay Ooh Lau Ee - Oh Ry In Eye Ay
Sya Te Lee Ay Vee Show
Greedy feeling wheeling dealing
Losing what you won
See the dream come undone
Stumble you may with the elementary
Lucky you got so far
All you owe is apologies
Measure the mystery and astound
Without taking up time
So the handiworks remain there
Only a dream away
Oh Ry In Eye Ay - Oh Ry In Eye Ay
Oh Ry In Eye Key Ooh Lay
Ka Lay Ooh Lau Ee - Oh Ry In Eye Ay
Sya Te Lee Ay Vee Show
In out, hot cold, up down, young old
What a lot to do
Sharing a dream with you
Oh Ry In Eye Ay - Oh Ry In Eye Ay
Oh Ry In Eye Key Ooh Lay
Ka Lay Ooh Lau Ee - Oh Ry In Eye
Sya Te Lee Ay Vee Show
