Classic movie, poor quality disc,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Time Bandits [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Just a quick review to agree with Mr Ro Johns. The movie itself is fantastic and is an essential film for your collection, one of Terry Gilliam's best but also most successful films (a rare combination) and entertaining again and again.
However as Blu Rays go this is poor. Very few extras and a very poor-quality print which has some picture drop-out, plenty of dust, and less than perfect sound quality. Admittedly the film is from 1981 and may not be in the best of conditions but no apparent effort has been made to clean it up. A lazy quick Blu Ray transfer.
Hopefully someday there will be a remastered, 'special edition' version. I wish I'd waited for that.

teeton von leon, I don't have the disc myself (yet) but according to bluray.com (or dvdbeaver comparison) this UK disc is in fact 1080p, while the North American discs are 1080i and of much worse quality.
