Forty years later, Monty Python's still funny.

Forty years later, Monty Python's still funny.

Anyone who’s ever laughed at someone imitating a horse’s gallop with coconuts, a bunch of cackling men dressed as women, or skits involving dead parrots is undoubtedly a Monthy Python fan. So this week is cause for joy with the arrival of Monty Python: Almost the Truth, The Laywer’s Cut, the DVD/Blu-ray special edition of a six-part documentary about the groundbreaking British comedy troupe.  In addition to tracking each of the members lives, as well as extensive interviews, you’ll also get many of Python’s best bits: The Parrot Sketch, Spanish Inquisition, The Lumberjack Song and the Ministry of Silly Walks. As they’d say it: My GOD man! What are you waiting for! Buy the thing!

Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction. How else to explain that Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs‘ would arrive in stores the same week that nearly 20 inches of snow has slowed things at ListenUp’s blog central in Denver to a crawl. (So this is what happened to the dinosaurs?) Also out this week: Orphan, in which a nice couple adopts an angelic 9 year old who turns out to be the murderous sort, hilarity ensues (Oh, sorry, actually this is a HORROR movie); Whatever Works starring Larry David as a genius who hates everyone until he meets naive runaway Evan Rachel Wood (I don’t care what they say: this sounds like a horror movie); Nothing Like the Holidays features an all-star cast (John Leguizamo, Debra Messing, Alfred Molina, Elizabeth Peña) in a drama about the importance of family relationships in times of personal crisis (yep, another horror film)
