Time Bandits (1981)

This weeks movie is called Time Bandits directed by Terry Gilliam and starring an array of great actors (Sean Connery, John Cleese, Ian Holm, Michael Palin, Shelley Duvall).


When Blayne and I found this movie we thought it sounded ridiculous, and boy we had no idea!

Here’s the Short Synopsis that we found:

A young boy’s wardrobe contains a time hole. Through this hole an assortment of short people (i.e. dwarfs) come while escaping from their master, the supreme being. They take Kevin with them on their adventures through time from Napoleonic times to the Middle Ages to the early 1900s, to the time of Legends and the Fortress of Ultimate Darkness where they confront Evil.

Now here’s what we thought. Take a listen:

Any Which Way You Can (1980)

Welcome to the first episode of Faux Reel!

This weeks episode is based on the (not really) acclaimed film Any Which Way You Can the greatly anticipated sequel to Any Which Way but Loose.


Here’s the Short Synopsis we found:
Philo takes part in a bare knuckle fight – as he does – to make some more money than he can earn from his car repair business. He decides to retire from fighting, but when the Mafia come along and arrange another fight, he is pushed into it. A motorcycle gang and an orangutan called Clyde all add to the ‘fun’.

And here’s what we thought happened. Listen and see how close/far off we were:
