From the box:
Every man dreads the day he might be forced to defend his wife and his home.
Dustin Hoffman stars as a man who avoids confrontation at all costs, in Sam Peckinpah’s powerful study of violence and survival. When mathematician David Sumner (Hoffman) moves to a small English village with his wife, Amy (Susan George), he finds a lot more than the peace and quiet he wants for his work. Their idyllic life turns into an ordeal, and their relationship is severely strained, as Amy becomes the center of attention among several workmen who begin to test David. When they see he will not stand up to them, their taunts become viscous torment that finally forces David to decide how far he’s willing to go to protect his home, his wife and his dignity.

Time Bandits on VHS. Starring John Cleese, Shelley Duvall, Sean Connery, Michael Palin, David Warner, Craig Warnock, Katherine Helmond, Ian Holm, Ralph Richardson, Peter Vaughan, Jack Purvis, David Rappaport, Kenny Baker, Mike Edmonds, Malcolm Dixon, Tiny Ross. Directed by Terry Gilliam. 1981.
From the box:
…they didn’t make history, they stole it!
This adventure-fantasy-comedy is a wildly imaginative trip to a new dimension in time and space crammed with humor, action and spectacular special effects. A young time traveler (Craig Warnock) encounters Napoleon, Robin Hood and King Agamemnon, as well as the sinking of the Titanic, in this spaced-out romp through the heavens and history, produced and directed by Monty Python’s Terry Gilliam. The musical score by ex-Beatle George Harrison adds to the excitement of castles, legends, battles between good and evil and the capricious rewriting of history.
