If you lost your Holy Grail Extra Credit handout…

…Here’s what it said:

Wednesday, October 14th, Cinemark is showing Monty Python’s Holy Grail in a “Quote-along” format.  This film relates to Mythology, as we are already discussing epic heroes, leadership, and the ways in which a culture’s values and morals are encoded into their myths and legends; in addition, we will spend the month of January studying King Arthur.

This film takes a satirical look at myth and legend, yet, like any great satire, it contains a great deal of “truth” about the story.  It is also a great demonstration of how stories are changed, updated, and passed down from one generation to the next in a continuous game of “Telephone.”

To get extra credit for seeing this film, you must do the following:

  1. Keep your ticket stub
  2. Write a paragraph (up to 2 pages) reviewing the film. This must include a thesis statement with a rating (use any system you like—stars, points, thumbs, etc.), details from the film to support your rating, and connections to the themes of Mythology class (see above).
  3. Staple your ticket stub to your review, and turn it in to the basket no later than Friday 10/23.
