1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Buy if you've seen the original June 8 2014

Format:DVD
This is a very bad shortened version of the original. I was so happy to get it on DVD at last, but it has been butchered. Like so many movies offered on DVD nowadays buyer beware. They cut them like crazy and I have no idea why. So disappointing to finally get a favorite on DVD and then find it has been badly altered. I am not buying any more DVD's until I check the packaging in person , they cut, they dub over and do all sorts of awful things.

The (self-) mutilation and gleeful cutting and chopping seems a bit ruthless here -- so I'll be, too, in the same vein. (Ooh! "Vein." An unintended pun, and just as unintentionally, slightly morbid. Sorry. But it stays -- it's the principle of the thing, and I AM making self-censoring my subject, after all. Unnecessary and overzealous, overeager, heavy-handed, arbitrary censoring especially. Makes me cross. And horizontally-striped, too; banded. Not to mention chequered. It's a bugaboo, what can I say? I see it too often. And even once is too often, arguably. In principle. "Put a stop to wanton works-butchery!" That's my petition as of now, and none too soon. "Wanna sign it?...")

So this is a heavily edited (psycho-chopped?) version for the "srs," "bsy" viewers? ("Srs" stands for "serious," and "bsy" for "busy" -- they can't be bothered spelling out words in their entirety and "have no time" for it either; we've all encountered them texting at the wheel and shout-talking on their mobiles in public places: "they's vry importnt VIPs," [sic] one and all, as we know -- or as they'd like us to know, in any case -- and must be listened to: "chop-chop.")

Is that it? Is that the target audience for the chop-work? Maybe. And for the price (for any price, really) why isn't the full version selectable on the disc, as an open-minded, nicely democratic option, as it is for other films with similar ambitions of chop-happy maiming and truncating?

I'm all for Terry Jones indulging his more special (inner) "son" by giving him free rein over his pony (that promptly tossed him on his head, apparently), or to his first pair of scissors as he encourages him to run with them (chopping, snipping, and stabbing haphazardly), but...

4.0 out of 5 stars Slightly Chopped..but not very well Dec 1 2008
Format:DVD
Okay I ordered this film not knowing that I was getting The Director's "Son's" Version. First off the film has been cut to like 70 or 75 minutes which is kinda weird because what was wrong with the original version to begin with. And second the "Son's Version" cut short two scenes which were I guess a couple of my favorite scenes. The scenes in question being the part where Erik and his crew where all getting ready to commit mass suicide when they thought they were all going to drown and they had their swords held at each others throats. Say good bye to that scene, which I was looking forward to while viewing this dvd. And the second scene that I was waiting for was when the "Berserk" guy was foaming up and going into a "Berserk Mode" moment when they were battling those skull face guys. That scene has been cut as well but should have been left in because I thought it was a hilarious scene with him foaming up and going berserk. All in all still a good comedy but with two good comedy scenes cut out and cut short.

3.0 out of 5 stars The origional was better Feb. 3 2010
Format:DVD
Although the director and his son prefure their new edit of this movie, i much prefured the origional cut. Also, this movie is much shorter than the origional so they cut a lot out.
