    Ack. Forgive the stupid apostrophe in Python's.

    I hate when I do that. [​IMG]

    Ahhh, this should be fun. I would love to catch this in a theater. I hope they end up getting either a nice roadshow or enough of a distribution so it gets to my middle of the country (where it should play like gangbusters [​IMG]).

    I would love nothing more than to see and hear a performance of "Look On The Bright Side Of Life" in the theater.

    In the wake of the success of The Passion Of The Christ, and to honor L.O.B.'s 25th anniversary, the film is being re-released:

    Yahoo! News


    Odd, After seeing "Passion" I kind of wondered whether or not I could watch "Brian" again. after a bit of time, my concerns seemed to have mellowed a bit. It would be interesting to see it on the big screen again, If they were able to restore Otto and the Judean People's Front.

    Count me as one who actually got to see it on the big screen, albeit in 16mm, not long after it was first released.

    See this should be cool, but what ends up happening is you go there to enjoy the film, and every other person is quoting the movie line for line, or singing all the songs, etc. Ack! Not worth it.

    I merged Keith Paynter's new thread about the same subject with this one. This explains some oddities in the flow of this thread as it is now. [​IMG]

    Paul,

    This did not happen when Holy Grail was re-released a year or two ago. (At least at the screening I attended.) I think we have nothing to fear. [​IMG]

    Post deleted. Anyone who wants to discuss The Passion should do so in the official threads. Anyone who wants to discuss general socio-political issues relating to The Passion should do so somewhere other than HTF.

    I love Monty Python.

    I think Life of Brian is hysterical.

    But this:



    seems rather absurd. If they want to re-release Life of Brian to capitalize on TPOTC's success, fine. They'll probably rake in some more cash, quite possibly some of mine. But "antidote to Mel"? Give me a break.


    P.S. Why wasn't Spaceballs re-released when people needed an antidote to The Phantom Menace?

    Because you don't need an antidote to "cure" you from sleeping?
