When I thought of this tournament I considered leaving Bond out as per The Beatles, Aretha .... 

 

No way I can vote against Life of Brian. Not ever.

The Life of Brian is one of the best British films ever but the other Python films are a bit patchy for me. Bond was ace with Moore and Connery but not great since. Will go with Python because you cant beat a good laugh.

Bond could go out here. I thought it had an excellent chance of making the semi-finals, if not the final.

 

Well, that's cast rather a gloom over the evening....

Life of Brian and Lebowski are the two funniest films ever but apart from a couple of funny bits the other Python films aren't very good.  There are some poor Bond films but mostly they're either good, really good or great.

Tough choice indeed, Bond is probably the longest running and culturally most important proper franchise in the history of cinema (Star Wars was not a franchise, it was devised as a myth told in 9 installments, deliberately over a longer period of time), whilst Python films are neither a franchise or a series in any shape or form.

Ah, those missing Python members Joel and Ethan Coen.

The Holy Grail is very very good, not just comedically but (for a comedy) cinematographically.

 

Then for Life of Brian to comfortably top that... Meaning of Life was a "let-down" that won the Cannes Grand Jury Prize in 1983.

Ha ha.

 

It was an easy choice for me - Bond.

I’ve seen the Monty Python films and whilst they are funny, they’re not something I’d be in a rush to watch again. I’d rather watch Fawlty Towers or Ripping Yarns.

This is a ludicrous draw at this stage. For that reason I'm out. Wanker of a draw. It's like San Mitty always getting drawn against lon-neague opposition in the AF Cup whilst Piverlool always get Flop Tight opposition. It's a fix.

I was gutted when I randomized and very very nearly re-did it but that just goes against the way it should be. Its a fucker

I look at the Python films as separate entities that just happen to be made by the same people. 

 

Bond is Bond and (Goldeneye aside) the less said about the Brosnan era the better - however it wins this hands down for me, and as much as i love Life of Brian and Holy Grail, there is simply more Bond to love.

Cant decide at the minute as Life of Brian and one that never gets mentioned often in And Now For Something Completely Different (a best of if you like) is also a laugh out loud classic film.

Bond though is culturally important and is arguably the greatest movie franchise ever that has produced some brilliant movies and scenes especially under Connery but also the early Moore ones .

Will have to think about this one

Monty Python movies were great, but some of the earlier Bonds at the time they came out were the very peak of excitement and brilliant filmmaking for whisking you away to a breathless place of gorgeous woman and amazing action scenes.  It's all a bit formulaic now, probably naturally enough, and no one is ever surprised by a Bond gadget these days, but back in the day a car shooting guns or turning into a submarine was head exploding stuff. Again, Monthy Python were great, but Bond was sensational

Really difficult this, on top of the obvious great Python films I also think the Meaning of life is a brilliant sketch film but in the end gone for Bond
