Monty Python and the Holy Grail Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Monty Python and the Holy Grail doesn't always look pretty, but Sony's faithful 1080p transfer is, generally, spectacular. Certainly, there are some very soft and hazy shots where detail appears low. Colors are often drab by nature. Viewers who don't like grain won't be very happy with the presentation. But for much of the time Monty Python and the Holy Grail looks amazing. Clarity is superb, generally, and combined with the natural grain structure, the transfer has every opportunity to reveal some very strong detailing. Facial intricacies, chain mail armor, clothing textures, individual grasses, stone fašades, and even lumpy mud all appear nicely defined. The image enjoys a fair sense of natural depth, too. As noted, colors are rarely striking. The palette is somewhat bland by design, but green grasses, the knights' crests and coats of arms, and even the many earthen shades of mud, dirt, and stone appear natural and true. Flesh tones are accurate, and black levels fare well. Though it doesn't match for raw clarity and precision the newest releases, Sony's latest catalogue transfer is pretty spectacular and should delight fans both new to the movie and those with well-worn VHS, LaserDisc, and DVD copies of the film.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Monty Python and the Holy Grail's DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack, much like the video, has its moments of many ups and a few downs, but the good far outweighs the bad. Though there's not much body to the opening title music, it picks up a bit once various people have been "sacked" over the subtitle "fiasco." Early on, such elements seem focused straight up the middle with little range and only acceptable clarity. Yet as the film moves along, the track opens up considerably, spreads further out, and plays with a richer, more lifelike flair and a full body heft. Various sound effects range from adequate to striking. Booming thunder as heard in chapter eight enjoys natural spacing and a lifelike presence, which is followed by the hefty voice of God that seamlessly reverberates through the soundstage, making fine use of the added back channels. At the French castle siege sequence, the sounds of cows, cats, and chickens-as-projectiles prove seamlessly fun; moos, meows, and clucks maneuver effortlessly around the listening area. The famed "Holy Hand Grenade" explodes with a good, potent low end, the best example of heavy bass in the film. Dialogue is crisp and focused, generally, finding good balance whether in screechy voices or the heavy Latin chants, and even enjoying a solid, natural sense of reverberation in chapter 17. All in all, this is a fine track that might experience a few moments when it lacks in greater clarity or wider spacing, but fans should enjoy the lossless boost quite a bit. This disc also includes "Subtitles for People Who Do Not Like the Film (From Henry IV pt. 11)." Accessible from the "Languages" menu option, these subtitles present more discerning viewers with a more "proper" and high-minded translation of the film.
