28 September 2014 2:59 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With less than three months to go before we return to Middle-earth for the final instalment of The Hobbit trilogy, Peter Jackson has been talking to Total Film about the upcoming The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, and specifically how he’s expanding the source material in order to provide a suitably epic climax to his Lord of the Rings prequel.

“We’re developing more story with the elves and with Gandalf. We’re developing the character of Bard the Bowman. We’re able to expand what was there, bring in a little bit extra to the mythology and open it up a bit.

Blu-ray, DVD Release: Time Bandits

17 September 2014 3:28 PM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: Dec. 9, 2014

Price: DVD $29.95, Blu-ray $39.95

Studio: Criterion

There's adventure and fantasy afoot in Time Bandits.

The 1981 adventure fantasy Time Bandits is a energetic and engaging voyage through time and space from Terry Gilliam (Brazil).

In the film, a boy named Kevin (Craig Warnock) escapes his gadget-obsessed parents to join a band of time-traveling dwarves. Armed with a map stolen from the Supreme Being (Ralph Richardson, The Four Feathers), they plunder treasure from Napoleon (Ian Holm, The Lord of the Rings trilogy) and Agamemnon (Sean Connery, The Man Who Would Be King)—but Evil (David Warner, Titanic) is watching their every move.

Featuring a darkly playful script by Gilliam and Monty Python’s Michael Palin (who also appears in the film), Time Bandits is at once a giddy fairy tale, a revisionist history lesson, and a satire on technology gone awry.

The film has been out in various »

20. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998)

Directed by: Terry Gilliam

So…drugs, right? Based on Hunter S. Thompson’s 1971 novel of the same title, Fear and Loathing stars Johnny Depp and Benicio del Toro as Raoul Duke and Dr. Gonzo, respectively. The pair is heading to Sin City, speeding through the Nevada desert, under the influence of mescaline. From there, the film is series a bizarre hallucinations seen through the eyes of Duke.
