Time Bandits is a podcast where three hosts travel through time to discuss movies and songs from 40 years ago.

    Galaxina (1980)

    Galaxina (1980)

    This time on the show, we pop into hyperdrive (so we can look at the neat colourful space lines) and then park by an asteroid to talk about Galaxina (1980). This space-comedy-spoof features Dorothy Stratten in the titular role, as well as Stephen Macht (The Monster Squad) as Thor and Avery Schreiber as a character named Capt. Cornelius Butt. That's the level of comedy you can expect here, and you'll either enjoy it or hate it. Which do we land on? Find out on our latest episode, and then go listen to our latest mixtape of music from 1980, right here.

    Hawk The Slayer (1980)

    Hawk The Slayer (1980)

    This time on Time Bandits, we're back in 1980 for a swords-and-sorcery epic of British origin. It's the 1980 cult-classic Hawk The Slayer, starring Jack Palance, John Terry and more. It's about revenge, it's about spinny neon circle things, it's about little creatures we don't get to see enough of, and it's about 90 minutes of your time. How do we feel about it? Well you'll have to listen in to find out. 

    And before you go, check out our latest mixtape of 1980s tunes linked right here! https://open.spotify.com/playlist/2fzMER6b47TwBB0rW4tvwg?si=cFAx4GJVR7Syy-ZF4PpKMQ

    Tammy and the T-Rex (1994)

    This week on the episode, we talk about the infamous 1994 gore-soaked "family" film Tammy and the T-Rex. Wait a minute, 1994? It's true, our time machines broke this week and we ended up in the 90s. We've got the back story on this wild cult classic, plus a new mixtape featuring jam after jam of 90s essentials.

    Schizoid (1980)

    Schizoid (1980)

    On this episode of Time Bandits, we go back in time to watch the Cannon Films slasher Schizoid - will it be a melodramatic, soapy slasher with giallo influences worth digging up, or did we travel back in time for no reason. Before we dive into that movie, we discuss what we've been absorbing here in 2020, including: The Trial of Mike Diana, Middleditch & Schwartz, and Bedtime.com? You'll have to listen to hear about that part.

    Don't forget we have a brand-new mixtape of music from 1980, including songs from: Polyrock, Kate Bush, The Buggles and more.

    The Pumaman (1980)

    The Pumaman (1980)

    This week on the podcast, look up in the sky! Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Is it... The Pumaman (1980)? Yes! And he's having a really hard go of things, from the looks of it. We talk about the 1980 superhero movie from Italy, most known from MST3K and for its ridiculous flying effects. 

    We talk about the movie, plus what we have been watching in 2020 (Brutalmoose, Flight of the Navigator and Angel Has Fallen) before we create another great mixtape of music from 1980 for you. Don't forget to follow us on Facebook and Twitter to be notified when we watch movies together!

    The Apple (1980)

    The Apple (1980)

    This week on Time Bandits, we celebrate the 40th anniversary of Menahem Golan's The Apple! This sci-fi-fantasy musical rock-n-roll experience is surely a singular experience. How did we enjoy experiencing it? You'll have to listen in to our episode to find out.

    Then, the three of us contribute songs for a brand-new playlist of music from 1980: Greg picked a Robert Palmer track, Casey squeezed a Squeeze song, and Dan went digging to find an obscure international act.
