The Holy Grail (2 Discs) (1974): Yoiks! Here be the Python's tale of good King Arthur (Graham Chapman) and his knights as they quest for the Holy Grail. Watch as they face great odds and silly sods. See them wage battle against the fierce Killer Rabbit ("Run Away! Run Away!"), and, (oh, horrors!) see them confront the dreaded Knights Who Say "Ni!".
Oh, these be trying times. Can these good knights pass the test of valour and cut down yon tree with herring? Or will they blow themselves to smithereens with the Holy Hand Grenade? Courage, Lancelot! Onward, Galahad! A hysterical, historical tour-de-farce from Terry Gilliam and Terry Jones.
The Life Of Brian (1979): You could say this is one of the greatest comedies ever, but the Monty Python team said it first! Life of Brian is all about (and here's the big surprise) the life of Brian, who was born in a Bethlehem manger next door to Jesus. Three wise men believe he is the messiah, but it becomes apparent that he is only Brian. It's written and performed by the Monty Python lads, so you know what you're in for; if you don't, put this disc down and go out while it's safe!
The Meaning Of Life (1983): Those six pandemonium-mad Pythons are back with their craziest adventure ever! These naughty lads offer the usual tasteful sketches involving favorite bodily parts and functions, the wonders of war, the miracle of birth and a special preview of what's waiting for us in Heaven. Nothing is too sacred for the probing Python crew. After seeing them in action, you'll never look at life in quite the same way again. It's far-out, frank, and jolly good fun!
And Now For Something Completely Different (1971): Revered by many as the most influential comedy series ever, and certainly one of the most popular, Monty Python's Flying Circus became a televisual institution. And Now For Something Completely Different, which is only available as part of the Monty Python The Movies Boxset, features a number of classic scenes from the TV series re-recorded and strung together to create a hilarious stand-alone movie. Sketches like The Dead Parrot, Hell's Grannies and the Inflammatory Hungarian Phrase Book remain as fresh and as funny as the first time they were aired!
Anyone want to swap me something for it?
Post yer offers here.
P.S. Doesn't have to be other DVDs (although it could be). I like guitars and mountain bikes and computers and lots of other stuff. In fact you might be surprised how much I would appreciate your junk.
P.P.S. I'm in Taipei.
