Time Bandits

Corrected entry: When Kevin and the dwarves are on the Titanic, the camera shows a close-up shot of a lifesaver hanging on the ship's deck. The lifesaver reads "S.S. Titanic". Being a British ship, the lifesavers on the Titanic should actually be labeled "R.M.S. Titanic".

Correction: All of Titanic's lifeboats were labelled "S.S. Titanic". At the Merseyside Maritime Museum you can see a lifeboat name plate that confirms this. http://www.liverpoolmuseums.org.uk/maritime/collections/liners/titanic/nameplate.aspxIf the lifeboats were labelled "S.S.", it's only likely that the life preservers read the same.The reason for this is that the Titanic was both an S.S. (Steam Ship) and occasionally an RMS (Royal Mail Ship). She would only have the second designation when carrying British mail, which would not necessarily be true for every voyage she ever made. Labelling the boats and preservers with the "S.S." monicker would be accurate no matter what the purpose for her trip was.


Corrected entry: Fidget the dwarf is played by Kenny Baker (R2-D2) of 'Star Wars' fame.

Correction: And Agamemnon was played by Sean Connery of James Bond fame. Reproducing the credits of the film is not trivia.

Corrected entry: The "invisible" barrier shown in the film is, in fact, very visible indeed; as the scene on it doesn't line up with what's actually behind it.

Correction: Since the barrier is magical, it could very well have been 'programmed' to create an illusion of a vast wasteland beyond it to discourage unwitting wanderers from going any further in this direction, or drawing their attention to the dark fortress in the first place. The barrier itself seems to serve only as a backup against too curious or too persistent travellers who want to investigate whatever they have run into.

Corrected entry: It was Theseus who killed the Minotaur, not King Agamemnon.

Correction: The minotaur was a mythical beast, half-human half-bull. The person that King Agamemnon is fighting with is not the minotaur, rather he is a warrior that wears a bull's head as headgear. The camera shows a wide shot of the warrior lying on the dead on ground after Agamemnon has removed the bull's head and placed it on his saddle. Also Theseus fought the Minotaru in the labyrinth of King Minos of Crete, not out in the middle of a desert.
