Best Children's Movie,
This review is from: Time Bandits (Two-Disc Special Edition) (DVD)
I have very fond memories of this film; it came out when I was about 12 years old. I grew up in a very small town in Kentucky, and we had one movie theater, which (for financial reasons I assume) would usually play one second-run film for several weeks at a time.
I loved this movie the first time I saw it. I rode my bicycle to the theater several times to watch this film (a child's matinee price was only $2.00). I must have seen it six times on the screen.
And as I got older, I began to see so much more about this film. Imagine.... a children's film that approaches such existential topics as the nature of God and the existence of evil. Really, really, magical.

Agreed.. This movie has some of the best theology in cinema.

But is it really a children's movie?
I'm not suggesting that children shouldn't watch it. I'm all for giving kids the most sophisticated fare they'll willingly sit through. But... I think it's a damn good movie, period.
