Holy Grail 2 disk special edition DVD by ellenpc on 22 January 2003 1:20am
 
We've just finished watching the Holy Grail DVD and are delighted with all the extra bits on it!! Literally hours of extras.......literally..........I say, literally........extras..........bits literally............

Favourite bits:

"Camelot" Song-n-dance routine done in LEGO!! Laughed so much it was unseemly!

Complete movie commentary from Eric, John and Michael. Especially Michael talking you through the Castle Anthrax and commenting he would have liked to have filmed the bedchamber scene every year!! Naughty Galahad!! Naughty, naughty!!

The directors reccccccce, with Terry x 2

Terry and Michael going back to the Scottish locations 25 yrs later......

Interviews during the 1974 filming.....Eric is hilarious, Terry G is so gleeful, Michael saying how he admires Charlton Heston's body!?.........

Aww heck!! The whole thing!!

It's all brilliant, brilliant!!

Who else has seen it????????

I love it to death! I rather enjoyed the bits of the movie dubbed in Japanese. I also like the Quest Locations and the BBC film night. For some reason when Michael looked at the camara in that one, I had the urge to wave. Felt like he was looking right out of the TV set. But call me crazy! Had a blast with the "Commenterry" too :)

Do you think there's a chance of them releasing a LIFE OF BRIAN 2-disc special edition DVD? Please say yes! *LOL* :D

Yeah, yeah, it's great!

I borrowed my friend's copy of this months ago and fell in love with it so much that it was nearly the first thing I bought when I got my own DVD player.

Agreed on the LEGO bit, Ellen - I *still* go into hysterics when I watch it. Great!

The bit with Terry and Michael going back to the old locations is also really neat, as you said, Ellen. I felt priviledged to see how they filmed a gazillion scenes in one castle AND to see the rapport between Michael and Terry. Gave me warm fuzzies inside.

The Film Night Bit is probably the extra stuff I watch the most, as I find it fascinating to see how they viewed it as they were filming it. I liked Michael's comment about Galahad turning into a "chunky motorcyclist figure" or whatever he said. LOL.

I haven't listened to the Eric/John/Michael commentary since I borrowed it months ago, so I don't recall much of it, but I listened to the Terrys' one recently and I just had to laugh because Terry G rambles onnnnn and onnnnn (much like me) and gets totally off the subject at times. LOL.

The Criterion Collection LOB may not be two disk, but it *definitely* has some glorious extra footage on it, cutout scenes and documentaries and...uh, yeah.

I have the dvd it was the first thing I bought when I bought my dvd player too! Love the Terry/ Michael locations bit and absolutely love listening to the commentary during the movie, especially when they talk about each other breaking up in the witch scene. Hilarious!
I wouldn't mind it if Michael filmed the Anthrax scene every year, as long as i got to be in it!!

Helen! Bad Helen! ;O)

After reading and participating in this thread, I was inspired to go watch some of that extra stuff again and re-listen to the Eric/Michael/John commentary. Good stuff. It was hard not to giggle every time Michael laughed - it's good to see the fellows can appreciate what they made.

It's so sweet when Michael gets all excited about William being in the film. I'd nearly forgotten about that part. LOL.

That's a very silly question, Ellen. ;O)

Of course, note that she didn't use a question mark so she is indeed assuming that we all know the answer is affirmative. LOL.
