Movie Reviews

The worst editions of these three films
Michael J. Benedetti | San Jose, CA USA | 01/20/2008
(1 out of 5 stars)

"There is only one reason to buy this repackaging of these three films - 'And Now for Something Completely Different', which is not available in a better presentation. Both the versions of 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail' and 'The Adventures of Baron Munchausen' are the worst possible presentations of these films available on video. In fact, 'Baron Munchausen' is the fist time that I have seen a wide screen film presented on DVD that was culled from a pan and scan video edition, re-framed as letterbox and then mastered to anamorphic. In this era of digital re-mastering in high definition for presentation in anamorphic as the de-facto standard for DVD releases, this edition is a travesty.

Don't buy it."
And Now For Something Completely Hilarious
VampireHunterP | 01/03/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Monty Python are probably the best known sketch comedian ever. They made a tv show, Monty Python's Flying Circus, and several hilarious movies.

AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT
Their first movie, which is a collection of their best skits from their tv show. This movie is hilarious. It includes The Lumberjack Song, The Dead Parrot Sketch, The Dirty Fork, and the World Funniest Joke.

MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL
Their best movie. It's about Arthur and his knights looking for the Holy Grail. This movie will make you laugh insanely. Funny moments include The Killer Rabbit, The Knights Who Say Ni, and The Black Knight.

THE ADVENTURES OF BARON MUNCHAUSEN
This movie is not a Monty Python film but was made by Terry Gilliam and co-stars Eric Idle, both of whom are former Pythons.
A must have for any Monty Python fan.

This set deserves the five stars and more. I recommend this to any Monty Python fan, British Comedy fan, or comedy fan in general. Too bad it didn't inlude The Meaning Of Life or Life Of Brian."
Zany English Satire at its Best
Jeffrey S. Brown | North Las Vegas, NV USA | 10/04/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've always loved the zany, silly, never-fully-serious, antics of Monty Python's Flying Circus, and to get a boxed set of 3 DVD's for less than $20.00 was a major find (in my not-so-humble opinion). What MP does so well is take the everyday boring routine of life and turn it upside down and inside out, by means of pure unadulterated silliness. They find ingenious ways to "poke fun" at everything, but somehow manage to do it in such a way that its virtually impossible to be offended by it.

The first volume in the set, "And Now For Something Completely Different, contains the best of their hit BBC TV Show from the early 1970's "Monty Python's Flying Circus." The various bits and sketches are still every bit as funny today as they were then.

The second volume was their first feature film: "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," takes a peculiar and perverse look at the King Arthur myth and his quest to find the most holy of cups in all the world. There is so much levity, parody, and satirical wit in this one film that its destined to remain a classic for some time to come.

The third volume contains "The Adventures of Baron Munchausen is a more recent release written by one of the members of the original group. If the movie "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" were to be mugged, then get run over by a bus, two cars, and a motor scooter, it might be close to the content in this movie.

I realize that MP is not for everyone. Not everybody enjoys their witty repertoire, but for those die-hard fans who find their unique brand of irreverent humor enjoyable, this is a must-have, and this three-in-one package deal makes it a bargain to boot.
"
Doesn't make sense...
Robert T. Haxton | 08/26/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"The "Monty Python Box Set" contains only three DVDs. One of the DVDs isn't even a Monty Python movie. Replace it with "The Life of Brian" or something Monty Python actually DID.

This is stupid."
