Monty Python Fans Did You Laugh When Watching The Rugby Match In The Meaning Of Life

Thanks for the a2a.Holy Grail is more Pythonesque. It has hilarious non sequiturs, lots of logic thrown into the four winds, and absolutely fantastic little bits and characters such as the Black Knight with his flesh wound.Brian is much more mature, and though it has its wacky moments like the aliens, the hilarious takes on religion form the core of the movie. It's excellent in its portrayal of hypocrisy and silliness inherent in fanaticism.I can't really pick one over the other. It's a mood question.

I'd like to answer this question in two ways, if I may. First in my normal voice, and then in a kind of silly high pitched whine...Like many Brits of my generation, I discovered Monty Python through my parents when I was a teenager, and recorded and watched the entire show when it was rebroadcast, followed by the films.I found it hilarious. Still do. There are sketches that are hit and miss, and some that only work if you're in the right mood, but there are usually so many layers to the comedy that there's always something to laugh at. More than any other comedy show, there are huge great chunks I can quote verbatim, and family in jokes based around lines from the show.On top of that, they changed what comedy can be. They dispensed with punchlines, catchphrases and even defined beginnings or endings to sketches. They combined pseudo-intellectual jokes that mercilessly mined the knowledge pumped into them by a public school and Oxbridge education with slapstick and gags that only worked because they were silliness layered upon a deadpan backdrop. Pretty much all subsequent British comedy owes something to Python (as it also does to the Goon Show and Beyond The Fringe).All of which would be enough for one comedy troupe, but then there's Life Of Brian. For my money, it is the funniest film ever made and one of the most profound. It's still a bunch of silly sketches, but somehow it coheres into something much deeper that has real (and hilarious) points to make about human nature and how we come to believe in things. If I had to explain humans to an alien race, I'd show them Brian (followed by Not The Nine O'Clock News's "General Synod's Life of Christ" sketch, which inverted the uproar from the Church and establishment over the launch of the film).I recently had the delight of introducing my 11 year old to the Python films, and while he giggled at Holy Grail, he laughed much harder at Brian.

Which movie has the better portrayal of King Arthur, "Monty Python & The Holy Grail" or "First Knight" with...

If you allow for a certain degree of poetic (or comedic!) license, "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" is a surprisingly accurate adaptation of real medieval literature about King Arthur and his knights.

Even many of the silly parts like the Castle Anthrax sequence have close counterparts in literature. Many stories involve one of the Knights of the Round Table visiting a castle full of women, and several stories have a sexy woman try to distract one of the knights from his quest (see Chretien de Troyes "The Knight of the Cart"). "The Knight of the Cart" and several other stories about Lancelot also have him rushing into a situation and killing a few people without realizing who they are or what is really going on, just as is shown in "Holy Grail" when he goes to rescue the prince.

"Holy Grail" was also one of the few films about King Arthur that didn't glamorize the Middle Ages. The costumes were reasonably accurate, and a real Scottish castle was used as a set.

Although "First Knight" was a drama rather than a comedy, it actually took more liberties with both the source material and the historic period. However, the basic plot of "First Knight" is the same as "The Knight of the Cart". Queen Guinevere and her affair with Sir Lancelot were important parts of the Arthurian legends, but Arthur's queen isn't even mentioned in "Holy Grail" while she's a major character in "First Knight".

It's up to personal taste which film you like best, but my vote would be for "Holy Grail" as both the better movie and the one that showed a deeper understanding of medieval history and Arthurian legend.

My Humps - The Black Eyed Peas. Preeeeety sure if BEP released a song with the lyrics "My humps, My lovely lady lumps!" in 2016 there would be a social meltdown. It was still cringe worthy and obnoxious in 2005 though. Obviously a psychologist would have a field day with Will.i.am’s lyrics ("lovely lady lumps" anyone?) and the fact Fergie hates her sex so much she'll willing to trot out the demeaning words. Aside from that, it's all terribly annoying.The Lazy Song - Bruno Mars. Oh yes Bruno you can sit at home all day with your hand down your pants, just please don't make us listen to a song about it, written in the style of a Lilt advert from 1995.Gold - Kiiara. There are few pop songs that make you cringe the first time you hear them. Usually they build up to it, slowly, because it's overplayed on the radio or you have that friend who's really really into it and then one day you find yourself grinding your teeth when you hear the chorus at Target. NOT SO with 2016's gold. The "hook" to the song is a weirdly mix over processed possibly parts backwards bit of the chorus. You can't even sing it live. Pentatonix makes a good effort in their cover, but then again their cover is better than the original song. It also doesn't help that the entirety of "Gold" is basically held together by reverb.
