Monty Python

This is truly awesome. Someone cut a modern-style trailer for Monty Python and the Holy Grail and made it seem like a straight Hollywood thriller with no comedy.

One thing I find amazing is that tools to do this kind of editing have become so cheap and widespread that someone with this kind of talent can do something like this, sitting at his home computer.

1 Of course, this game can be played in the other direction:

Ten Things I Hate About Commandments.

"At Pharaoh High, Rameses was the biggest playa around...."

I am especially amused that the acting in both is at about the same level. (At least for the clips used.)

However, I have to say the Python version demonstrates a level of film making skill I had not recognized in the original. They essentially filmed a serious story, but with an absurd script.
