Monty Python's The Meaning of Life Blu-ray

Posted May 30, 2013 09:12 AM by Webmaster

Universal 100thIn celebration of the film's 30th anniversary, Universal Studios Home Entertainment has announced the Blu-ray debut of Monty Python's The Meaning of Life, which stars John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin, Terry Gilliam and the late Graham Chapman. The Blu-ray edition includes a new, exclusive cast reunion and a variety of additional bonus features, and is set to arrive on October 8th.

Synopsis: In the early 1980s, The Meaning of Life brought all the loyal Pythons back together, sharing writing responsibilities as they returned to their much loved sketch show format, with Terry Jones directing and John Goldstone producing. With roles ranging from The Grim Reaper to the legendary Mr. Creosote, the Python troupe first left audiences in stitches in 1983 with iconic scenes such as "The Miracle of Birth," "Live Organ Transplants" and the outrageous "The Autumn Years."

The Blu-ray release of The Meaning of Life features a 1080p video presentation, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, and the following extras:

    Blu-ray Exclusives

    • The Meaning of Life 30th Anniversary Reunion - Sit down with the surviving members of Monty Python for a funny, enlightening trip down memory lane. 30 years after making The Meaning of Life, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin reunite for a new hour-long conversation about the last movie they made together. From the beach in Jamaica where it was written to the hilarious ideas that didn't make the cut, the Pythons provoke laughter and thought with a wide-ranging discussion about comedy, society, the universe and the biggest mystery of all why are fish funny? Once you hear the Python perspective on Life, you'll never see the movie the same way again.
    • Sing-Along Version: Sing Along with the Film


    Other Bonus Features

    • 2003 Prologue by Eric Idle
    • Feature Commentary with Terry Jones & Terry Gilliam
    • The Snipped Bits: Seven Deleted Scenes
    • The Meaning of Making The Meaning of Life
    • Educational Tips to Prepare You for Life in the Real World
    • Un Film de John Cleese: A Trailer for the John Cleese Version of the Film
    • Remastering a Masterpiece: How to Revive an Old Master
    • Song and Dance: A Featurette About Two of the Film's Musical Numbers
    • Songs Unsung: Alternate Versions of Original Songs
    • Selling The Meaning of Life: In Your Face Promotional Material

Looks like it has a few new features plus lossless audio, so another HD-DVD can finally be replaced. I just hope Universal doesn't recycle the old transfer.

Not as good as Life of Brian or The Holy Grail, but still miles ahead of most comedies.

Just in time. Now I don't have to order the French BD!
reading this thread, Oh yes, if only the series could be somehow remastered or upgraded, I know most of it is on low-fi video, but surely it could look better.
