    Loved the bit in Holy Grail when his face mask kept closing on his face. :)

    The Holy Grail is arguably the funniest film ever made- I’ve watched it a few dozen times, and I still laugh out loud at a few of the skits.
    RIP, Terry.

    Very sad news indeed. Terry was an amazingly talented and funny guy. I think I'll spin the Holy Grail tonight in his honor. Peace, Mr, Jones!

    Did a great introduction to the three Criterion Jacques Tati films Playtime, Mon Oncle, and Monsieur Hulot's Holiday.

    I didn't know he'd been suffering from dementia. He was a huge talent, and gave us new ways to laugh. Guys like that can't be replaced.

    Very sad, gave us so many great memories, not the least of which is actually the screenplay for Labyrinth, a guilty pleasure for us Bowie fans.
    And all those Monty Python things as well.
    RIP, Terry.

    Let's just remember this is a man who brought and will bring smiles on the faces of those who watch his movies. He left the world a legend and made other's lives better through his work, thank goodness for talented people like him. May he rest in peace!
