Legend.  The lord called Darkness.


Awesome movie.  Tim Curry is incredible, as always.

Man, Time Bandits is such a good movie ... I've picked up on something new with each viewing. It's truly all-ages, too: some of the stuff that didn't seem that great to me as a little sprout is pretty damn funny now.

Agreed.  I just wathced it again the other night, for the first time in years, and it was far funnier than I had remembered.  A real masterpiece.  I loved the Robin Hood scene.   :lol:

That's actually the one I was thinking of the most — not so funny as a kid, hysterical as an adult.  :)

That was one of the scariest movies I ever saw as a kid. Even now I still find it kind of creepy.

Some good lines in Time Bandits...and some funny situations.  Overall, it falls a bit flat.  One has the feeling that it could have been just...a...bit...more...funny, but they cut the funny parts out.

It is ironic, more than funny.

Wally: Lads! Here's to stinking rich!
All: Yeah!
Fidgit: And to Kevin.
All: Yeah, Kevin!
Og: Stinking Kevin.

One of my favorite lines of the movie.   :D   This one was the best:

Evil: If I were creating the world I wouldn't mess about with butterflies and daffodils. I would have started with lasers, eight o'clock, Day One!

:lol:

And while were on the topic of movies...I watched The Prestige the other day.  Damn that is a good movie!  Christopher Nolan has a twisted mind when it comes to movie making.

As evil as . . . the "Godless Dollar"?

Opening paragraphs from http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2007/03/ ... 3498.shtml :

"(AP) An unknown number of new George Washington dollar coins were mistakenly struck without their edge inscriptions, including "In God We Trust," and are fetching around $50 apiece online.

The properly struck dollar coins, bearing the likeness of the nation's first president, are inscribed along the edge with "In God We Trust," "E Pluribus Unum" and the year and mint mark. They made it past inspectors and went into circulation Feb. 15."

Hey, bclarkie, can you pick up some of these for us?  You're near the Philadelphia mint . . .

Back in the early 1980's I was the first senechal of the shire of Riverbend based in my home city. It was inspired by Seashire which was still a shire at that point but became a Barony shortly after.

After about a year I wrote to the corporate office in Milpetas California and the East Kindom officers asking for Riverbend to be disolved. It seems that we had acquired some individuals who were disruptive and also fairly heavy drug users. I did not want our shire, or any of our events tainted by a drug bust.   :x

Apparently another shire started a number of years later, but I was not moving in "those circles" at that point and never became involved.
