Hailed by Time Magazine as “a movie” and by the Chicago Reader as “full of stuff”, Monty Python and the Holy Grail follows King Arthur and his band of less-than-merry men across the English countryside as they search for the elusive Grail. See flying cows, killer rabbits, vestal virgins and various forms of shrubbery as the Knights of the Round Table run away from peril at every possible moment. See the movie which critics universally agree is about 92 minutes long!

Yes, it is all very silly like when grown men pretend to ride horses, which are not there; but I used to do that. It was more fun than playing with a computer. Monty Python is all about us doing what we really like to do and behaving as we truly want to and not allowing ourselves to be stereotyped into into behaving after certain styles and fashions. It takes the mickey out of pomposity and teaches us to laugh at ourselves. And, of course, the Monty Python team made a lot of money out of doing just that, which is a reminder of how much money is made out of many people by fooling them into smoking, drinking, gambling, drug taking and wasting money by taking holidays in all the wrong places. This is all daft and made worse by religious daftery. (Is that a word?) Python teaches us to laugh at ourselves and realise how silly everything really is. If we all did that there wouldn't be any more wars or religious bigotry. Stars? Of course it's worth five stars, although 'The Life of Brian' is worth five even brighter stars.
What a shame, then, that the blu-ray advertises, in its ‘Special Features’ section, the acquisition of an accompanying iPad app, which, while still available at, currently, a cost of £3.99 doesn’t any longer link to the blu-ray, which seems to be the main point. In trying to obtain a refund, I was directed (only) to the app’s originators’ site, which just baldly states that this all-important feature is just ‘no longer available.’ I’m sure there are those who might still find the other features of the app to be jolly good fun, but these don’t seem to be the selling points. Please be warned.
Do enjoy the film, though, but remember that 5 is right out.
As for this version, it is a great addition to any Python collection. The castle with the catapult was a great touch in true Pythonesque fashion.
The bonus content of the Blu-Ray is great, I highly recommend the Tribeca Film Festival interview with John Oliver.
As for the Blu-Ray "upgrade" itself, I've seen a lot of complaints here about the quality. I'm not an expert in these matter I'll be honest, but it looked very good to me. I definitely recommend it.
If you have not seen it, what have you been doing in your life ?
I have seen the documentaries about The holy grail and there was argument, trouble ,budgetproblems and Graham Chapman was drunk every day and so on...
But from this emerged the greatest Comedy ever made with so many Classic scenes so I would be foolish just to mention some.
``None shall pass``, ``We are no longer the Knights who say ni``,`` Bring out your dead``, ``Good idea oh Lord`` to mention a few.
(Oh no I was foolish !)
And now it has arrived on Blu-Ray with English subtitles and a whole a lot of extra material.
I am in movie/film heaven.
Extra Features: 2 commentary tracks - by directors Terry Gilliam and Terry Jones and other one by writers and cast members John Cleese, Eric Idle and Michael Palin. There are also 3 sing-alongs, 50 min long feature The Quest for the Holy Grail Locations!, sketch How to use coconuts, Monty Python and the Holy Grail in Lego, 18 minute long location report "On Location with the Pythons", interactive cast directory, original sketches and posters, behind the scenes photos, unused ideas(something like storyboards) and 2 trailers. In other words - loaded with extra content. This is a very good DVD for Python fans and newcomers alike.
