I think the Holy Grail is a funnier film, and in some ways a more learned one, given the things it parodies. However it feels more of a mess to me than Brian, and less coherent. I prefer it to Brian, overall, but I'm not sure that it's necessarily better.

That's about how I see it. Holy Grail will make you laugh out loud more but Brian is a better put together film.

Love both but prefer the Life of Brian. It comes down to the endings. Holy Grail seems to be a bit of a let down (almost like they ran out of ideas) but Brian is perfect black comedy.

Yes. I think I'd agree with you. I loved Grail but it felt like an elongated sketch whereas Brian felt like a properly structured film. Still, the world is a funnier place for having them both:)
