…I’m not even going to dignify the FISTFUL OF DOLLARS / TIME BANDITS remakes with a response.

You can see the news for A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS here and the trailer for TIME BANDITS here. I will say only this: Taika Waititi needs to go sit in a corner, and think about what he has done. And maybe watch the original TIME BANDITS again, to see all the Christian subtext that Terry Gilliam put in there, probably without even realizing it.


So, they almost did a TIME BANDITS sequel.

Feel free to click through to GeekTyrant’s description of it. Spoiler warning: the sequel would have been a pile of shit. …I was half-tempted to come with something a little less robustly Anglo-Saxon, there – but no. There are times when you have to call a pile of shit a pile of shit, and this is that time. Go watch TIME BANDITS again, instead – and offer praise to the LORD that this is not the worst timeline, after all.


Time Bandits remake? WHAT?




I mean, seriously: “a bigscreen kids action franchise?” Have they actually SEEN Time Bandits?  This is like… like doing the Watchmen graphic novel as a crappy 1980s Saturday cartoon show:

Yes, it’s a funny concept.  It’s funny because it would totally suck, which is why people didn’t actually do it.  These guys are actually threatening to do it.
