5.0 out of 5 stars The Special Edition is Special, October 12, 2001
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Monty Python and the Holy Grail (Special Edition) (DVD)
Certain individuals have erroniously indicated in these reviews that the Special Edition will not have commentaries or other special features. They are wrong.
The special edition will contain the following:
A "21st anniversary" cut of the film that is 24 seconds longer, Dolby digital 5.1, a subtitle track for people who don't like the film (with text from Shakespeare's Henry IV), an onscreen screenplay option, audio commentary with Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones, John Cleese, Eric Idle and Michael Palin, and Follow the Killer Rabbit option. Disc 2 contains "Three Mindless Sing-Alongs" and "The Quest for the Holy Grail Locations" featurette, "How to Use Your Coconuts" educational film, "Monty Python and the Holy Grail in Japanese" (with English subtitles), the BBC Film Night special "On Location with the Pythonos", an interactive cast directory, still galleries with Terry Gilliam's original sketches and behind-the-scenes photos, "A Load Of Rubbish" with mystery items, unused ideas and other material, and finally two trailers and weblinks.
There will be no special features with the special edition? RUBBISH! This is not simply a reissue of the older DVD with new sound and audio as some have implied.

Do you seriously need another review of the actual movie? Whosoever hasn't seen this movie by now probably knows every major scene just by hearing it quoted by their annoying thespian friends at some point in their life anyhow.

Basically to show that this basically is a special edition, and it's helpful cause it really confirms that there is quite a bit of material here, something that might mislead others when trusting the people complaining.
