The ending is better, but I think they were trying too hard to make a 
point, and it drags, where Holy Grail is just gloriously ridiculous from 
start to about three minutes before the finish.

"Maybe he died while carving it?"

"Well he'd hardly carve "ARRRGH!" in the tock.  He'd just say it."

"Maybe he was dictating..."

The best bits of LoB are as good as the best stop in HG, but there are 
more good bits in HG.
