“Think as I think,” said a man, “or you are abominably wicked; you are a toad.” And after I thought of it, I said, “I will, then, be a toad.” ― Stephen Crane
First half of "Full Metal Jacket."
"Who Was That Lady?".The scene where they think they're on a submarine is a scream.
I'm pretty good with the list. Interesting, Office Space is perhaps the most recent film on that list, and it was released in 1999. Progressives have run all the humor out of Hollywood.
I'd say blazing saddles, dumb and dumber, and probably all of the jackass movies to date. :D
I've watched it probably 50 times and still laugh @ The Big Lebowski. "Shut the fuck up, Donny!"
Yeah, The Big Lebowski is pretty damn funny."Nihilists! Fuck me. I mean, say what you want about the tenets of National Socialism, Dude, at least it's an ethos."
Surely we can all agree on Airplane! Also two movie reviews:1. Deadpool. Sucked. Appears to have been written by and for gay teenage boys.2. The Revenant. Outstanding. Intense, brutal, not for the faint of heart. Don't let Leonardo's stupid politics drive you away as long as you don't actually buy a ticket. An older Leo has become pretty good at pretending to be a badass. Also, muskets.
I don't know about Funniest Movie, but Funniest Opening Credits has to be Dr. Strangelove.
I don't recall any movie billed as a laff riot that was watchable beyond five minutes.I don't even like Woody Allen any longer, owing to the same-joke effect.Juno was good, for a couple of good lines and portrayal of a guy's niceness in immaturity.
Eagle vs Shark was good retroactively. The key line being "It doesn't matter" in its context.
Sid Caesar eating lunch in a tilted room had me in stitches when I was a kid.
Bueller's day off was enjoyable but not funny exactly.The bad guys were supposed to be funny in the laff riot way, but whatever. The cool played against them was the point.
Klavan said, on gender difference, a woman sees a woman star and worries that she's not that beautiful; a guy watches an action hero and thinks, "I could do that."
Klavan said that when a child star is said to have grown up, it means she's about to take her clothes off.
Hurricane Rhhardin just passed through this thread. Category 2.
I just watched Reach Me (Sylvester Stallone, minorish role) which wasn't bad, by the standards these days where I'm picking up mostly awful DVDs, having bought the good DVDs long long ago. Cheap at Amazon.
Simon Pegg ones are usually good. Man Up was funny.
