I Love Bananas Just a comment on your review; in the original movie the deaths are not supposed to be gruesome. They are supposed to be there for humorous purposes. It's the same with the "off-timed" comedy, half the point is to announce what happens before it happens.

I haven't had the time to watch the RMS myself, though, because of a computer problem. So I can't really judge it beforehand. But even so, looking at people's descriptions it is very much like the original video.
Also notable (assuming he didn't even read the description), this is based of a 50 year old(?) TV show, so the comedy might be a little 'out dated' (personally I still find it very funny. :)

Hello all,
well, first to my new "mate":

Well, first time I read your "review" I was not sure if it was constructive or just an insult. Almost everything you said is strictly incorrect. The original sketch is from Monty Python Theatre Group - very well known comedians since the late 1960's in UK - and since early 1970's woldwide known by TV shows and movies. Surely, this kind of british "black humor" is not everyone's taste.
Also, the sounds and music I added have a very good timing and I will NEVER edit this again.
The ONLY thing I would myself change in this RMS is the scene where is says: "... concealed in a hollow ...". In this scene there might can occur a black "bar" in the background, but, that's it!
Next time you review my stuff, please do not make it a way that you rate it just because of your own taste, and neither nor to degrade the MAIN current rating of this file by giving a VERY low rate. So, just make a comment next time. I have watched your profile, and what I have seen does not convince me at all to judge me like that. Maybe, you should concentrate on your own work for the AOM community, since every scenario/"campain" you submitted seemed to be not finished at all...

@ I Love Bananas:
No problem at all. I now published 2 different stand-alone versions of this movie in wmv and flash format in my forum:

Yes, the original sketch were first broadcasted on british television in the year of 1970, in the TV show "Monty Python's Flying Circus" - Season 2, Episode 11: "How Not To Be Seen".

Rating: 5
Fantastic! I've been a huge fan of Monty Python for several years now, and I was delighted when I saw that someone was finally giving a shot at putting them into AoM. Naturally, I was initially skeptical, but after having watched the cinematic I have to say I was wowed-over. This certainly does the sketch justice, an original and clever interpretation of classic comedy.

I whole-heartedly disagree with Ragnos about the timing issue. The long and some-what drawn out pauses only add to the humorous element, as does the non-detailed and plain background.

I must add that I am very impressed about how you managed to put something like this into an RMS script; many people couldn't produce art like this in the editor.

Additional Comments:
A must for any python fan. It is genuinly very funny and certainly compliments the original (which I recommend to anyone who hasn't yet seen it). Once again M0nTy PyTh0n has proved himself a genius of RMS scripting aswell as having showed us how not to be seen.

It's hard to say anything that hasn't been said already, but I'll try. This is indeed a masterpiece, a true work of art. You are absolutely amazing with scripting. The timing of all the events were great, in my opinion. I also loved all the original sound clips used. They really helped add to the overall effect. There really is nothing I can think of to improve this, it simply is amazing.

Additional Comments:
Keep up the good work, Monty!
I have always been a fan on Monty Python, and it would be cool to see some of the other work as well. ;)
Ragnos @MP

im sorry, but i care about value, and I m fimiliar with MP himself. But the map was overall nothing great, and i cannot believe people are giving 5s...

@ Ragnos:
The conversation with you is over. I explained in details before what you have missed in mind. I do not care about ratings, but I do care about correct or fair statements.

Aliblabla1942 Ragnos, your standards aren't everybody else's, you know. Handing out a stupid review is bad enough, but asking OTHER PEOPLE to rate this thingy down because you want them to is plain immature. Go try making one of these yourself, from a Random Map script, and you'll appreciate the work taken by MP to just give us a little entertainment.

Personally, I give MP a 4.5. But i won't review.
Ragnos my points were for the random map script..

i did not ask anyone else to rate it down, i just wish they wouldnt

the random map was impressive, and was the sound. However, the comedy was not very well executed.

i do not give stupid ratings, my rating was for the value of the map, and while impressive, the timing was horribly off and i did not laugh once...

if im missing the point of this map and it is not a comedy, then i will take back what i have said.

For my work, go to file 5952, Rebirth of Atlantis

PS: Okay, i may seem like an (word for butt) but i have my reasons... anyway, i am changing my original rating, after looking at the various script

Aliblabla1942 Yeah that is better

Sorry I if I went over the edge though.
