While Holy Grail is pure genius and a fantastic flick, it's not The Meaning of Life. Nor is it anywhere as quality as any of Terry Gilliam's later films (Brazil, Twelve Monkeys)... in terms of absolutely non sensical humor which still influences lots today (South Park, ATHF) though it's unmatched.

A masterpiece before it even was released.

Twelve Monkeys... Is that the one with Bruce Willis and time travel? If so, it most certainly is the purest gold.

Brazil - now you're talking, although it's quite a surreal film, it f*ckin rocks!! It's also the weirdest love story I have ever watched. ...And 12 Monkeys ... I'm a girl and Brad really does it for me!

Dont forget that Terry Gilliam directed the most brillant drug film: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

Fear and Loathing is quite a good film, but not Terry's best for sure...

STALKER: Well, the movie is pretty damn offensive for an eight year old... oh yes it is indeed... I hope now you've seen it plenty though.

I would just like to say Monty Python and the Holy Grail is the best movie ever made ever. This move does not have one bad part in it. Now ill leave you with some of the best lines from the movie. FRENCH GUARD: I don't wanna talk to you no more, you empty headed animal food trough wiper! I fart in your general direction! Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries! GALAHAD: Is there someone else up there we could talk to? FRENCH GUARD: No. Now, go away, or I shall taunt you a second time-a! ARTHUR: Now stand aside, worthy adversary. BLACK KNIGHT: 'Tis but a scratch. ARTHUR: A scratch? Your arm's off! BLACK KNIGHT: No, it isn't. ARTHUR: Well, what's that, then? BLACK KNIGHT: I've had worse. ARTHUR: You liar! BLACK KNIGHT: Come on, you pansy! HEAD KNIGHT: We are now... no longer the Knights Who Say 'Ni'. KNIGHTS OF NI: Ni! Shh! HEAD KNIGHT: Shh! We are now the Knights Who Say 'Ecky-ecky-ecky-ecky- pikang-zoop-boing-goodem-zoo-owli-zhiv'. RANDOM: Ni! HEAD KNIGHT: Therefore, we must give you a test. ARTHUR: What is this test, O Knights of-- knights who till recently said 'ni'? HEAD KNIGHT: Firstly, you must find... another shrubbery! [dramatic chord] ARTHUR: Not another shrubbery! RANDOM: Ni! HEAD KNIGHT: Then, when you have found the shrubbery, you must place it here beside this shrubbery, only slightly higher so you get the two- level effect with a little path running down the middle. KNIGHTS OF NI: A path! A path! A path! Ni! Shh! Knights of Ni! Ni! Ni! Shh! Shh!... HEAD KNIGHT: Then, when you have found the shrubbery, you must cut down the mightiest tree in the forest... with... a herring! [dramatic chord] KNIGHTS OF NI: A herring! ARTHUR: We shall do no such thing! HEAD KNIGHT: Oh, please! ARTHUR: Jesus Christ! TIM: I warned you! ROBIN: I done it again! TIM: I warned you, but did you listen to me? Oh, no, you knew it all, didn't you? Oh, it's just a harmless little bunny, isn't it? Well, it's always the same. I always tell them--

these are just a few lines of its greatness I am known as the halfling who says NI, HalflingWithRing
