John Cleese Recaps The Walking Dead

On Sunday night season seven of AMC’s The Walking Dead begins, and fans will finally get the answer to the question they’ve been pondering, theorizing, fearing over the past six months (after getting past that initial unadulterated rage phase after season six ended). And when that first episode begins and we get that answer, chances are high that for some fans things will be brought right back around to unadulterated rage. If you watch the show, you know what that question is. If not, I won’t say any more than this about it (though there will be spoilers below, so proceed with caution).

But while we prepare ourselves mentally and emotionally for whatever is going to happen, there’s still some time for a few laughs. If you need a refresher on what’s gone down in the first six seasons of The Walking Dead, or if, for whatever strange reason, you want to watch the new season but don’t feel like watching the first six, a new video has been released in which comedy legend and Monty Python member John Cleese reminds you/sums up what’s happened so far. It’s basically the same as Samuel L. Jackson’s beginner’s guide to Game of Thrones for us, only shorter and John Cleese style! Check it out below.

Monty Python

In April of last year it was reported that legendary comedy group Monty Python‘s final stage performance, titled The Last Night of Monty Python and described as a “…final, weepy, hilarious, uproarious, outrageous, farewell to the five remaining Python’s as they head to the Old Jokes Home, on the big screen, in HD” would be shown live in theaters around the world.

A documentary titled Monty Python — The Meaning of Life was also filmed during these final shows that offers a glimpse into the preparation that went into the live shows and the history of the comedy group. The documentary will make its international debut at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival—running from April 15th to April 26th—where Python members John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin will be on hand. While there, the group will also be celebrating the 40th anniversary of their 1975 movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail and their other classics with screenings followed by Q&A sessions.

The Elder Scrolls Online Image

If you’re excited to explore the ultimate Elder Scrolls open world map in The Elder Scrolls Online, that excitement is about to be elevated. Because the game isn’t just about exploring a massive map that includes previous game locations visited in Morrowind, Oblivion, and most recently, Skyrim. It also includes a story and plenty of quests, which of course means voice actors are necessary.

Monty Python

As we reported yesterday, the zany and unconventional British comedy ensemble Monty Python was holding a press conference today with a grand announcement of the surviving members reuniting. In that press conference, it was revealed that the legendary funnymen, John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Terry Gilliam, and Michael Palin are going to do a one-off live performance at London’s O2 arena next July.

Promising, in the inimitable Pythonian fashion, that the live show will be chock full of “a little comedy, a lot of pathos, some music and a tiny bit of ancient sex,” this will be the first time this quartet have performed live for an audience (with the sixth member of the group, the late Graham Chapman) since they did stints that included The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles back in 1980.

Monty Python’s Flying Circus To Reunite; Press Conference Will Be Held On Thursday

Monty Python

The surviving members of the pioneering British comedy troupe Monty Python’s Flying Circus are set to announce a reunion this week via a press conference on Thursday, November 21st. And in the typical Python fashion of unpredictability, there’s no leak or tease on just what this reunion is going to entail. No matter what form of media it finally manifests itself as, it’s probable that it’s going to be met with a lot of success and adoration by Python’s rabid fans, some who have been following the comedy ensemble and its individual members since 1969, when Monty Python’s Flying Circus originally aired on BBC-TV.

That show broke every single rule of conventionality that was affixed to the “rules of comedy” and presented sketches in bizarre manners in which sometimes abruptly ended, had no middle, no end, no theme, sometimes engaging in slapstick or broad comedy, witty repartee and banter, visual gags which ran the gamut, it was almost as if the program and the men who created/wrote and performed in it, John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones, Michael Palin, and the late Graham Chapman were hell bent on presenting an A to Z of comedy styles, and then decimating it with their own flamethrower styles.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail

These days, movie studios are under the assumption that for their film to draw in audiences, their movie trailers have to be filled with that ominous BRRAAAAHHHMM! sound, made so popular thanks to its overuse in Christopher Nolan’s Inception.

So, how would the trailer of an older movie come across to today’s audiences if it were recut to appeal to this modern assumption?

Check out the video here below for a trailer for 1975’s Monty Python and the Holy Grail, a feature-lengthy comedy by the Monty Python troop, created to make the film come across as a 2013 tragic and epic blockbuster.

Monty Python

Before you get too excited, no, Monty Python is not officially reuniting for some more Flying Circus action. It does appear, however, that the remaining members of the legendary comedy troupe will once again be combining their talents for an upcoming movie titled Absolutely Anything, which is set to be directed by Pythoner Terry Jones.

The movie will be a sci-fi comedy that combines live action and CGI. It tells the story of a group of aliens who choose a human to give the incredible power to do, well…quite literally absolutely anything just to see how badly they mess things up with their new abilities. At the moment, other Python members John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, and Michael Palin have all agreed to take part, and producers are currently talking to Eric Idle about joining. And who will the gang play? You guessed it, they’ll be voicing the aliens who give the human this power.

Disney: Winnie The Pooh (2011) movie posterWinnie the Pooh
Written by Burny Mattinson
Based on the characters by A.A. Milne
Featuring the voices of John Cleese, Craig Ferguson, Jim Cummings
Rated G
Disney Pictures
Release Date: July 15, 2011

If you are tired of seeing a summer blockbuster involving superheroes, wizards, or transforming robots, perhaps a trip through the Hundred Acre Wood would do you some good. For the first time in six years, Winnie the Pooh returns to the big screen in a brand new feature from Disney Pictures simply titled Winnie the Pooh.

Pooh’s friend Eeyore’s tail has gone missing and it is up to Pooh to find it. Pooh discovers soon that a tail is not the only thing that is missing. It seems his human friend Christopher Robin has also disappeared, leaving a curious note behind. Where has Christopher gone? Does it have anything to do with Eeyore’s missing tail? And who or what is a “Backson?”

The film, which is based off of three Pooh stories written by creator A.A. Milne, doesn’t try hard to reinvent the wheel. The characters are not rebooted or remade for the new generation. Its sole purpose is to tell an entertaining, by the book story about Winnie the Pooh and accomplishes this task with flying colors.
