Re: The Movie Forums Top 100 Comedies Countdown

The fact that Do The Right Thing's validity as a comedy gets questioned says something about how underestimated comedy gets as a genre. It doesn't have to be an easy sit-down-and-laugh experience...

Re: My Favorite Ed Harris Performances

You would really miss out on something special not seeing Nixon. One of my favorite Oliver Stone movies and features a breathtakingly brilliant performance by Anthony Hopkins. Trust me, those 3 hours...

Although most of the list is a joke, this one caught my attention! Cary Grant in a cross-dressing comedy? This should be something special.

Romancing The Stone is a comedy though, isn't it? It's a pretty lightweight and easy watch with fun chemistry between Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner. I would place that in the Crocodile Dundee...

Dawn Of The Dead has the best characters. You really care about every single one of them. Even the typical ass hole is not as bad as in most horror films, and he doesn't make the situation that much...

It was just a Mandela Effect from my side. I guess when people started talking about it and the early entries featuring some movies from the 40's I suddenly invented this canon in my head.

Re: The Hall of Infamy

I've never participated in a Hall Of Fame before, that's why I'm asking so many questions.

I love, love, love Dead Poets Society, but it's not a comedy at all. Despite what imdb is trying to tell me! It wouldn't make any sense for it to be on the list.

Re: The Hall of Infamy

Is this still going on?

How does this work? Do you send a top (or rather bottom) 25 list like in regular showdowns, or is it shorter? What if you've already seen one of the movies that's been...

Isn't The Conjuring one of the most popular horror franchises in recent memory? That's why they desperately keep cranking out these spin-offs and prequels tricking audiences into watching crap with...

Re: The Exorcist (1973) vs. Poltergeist (1982)

This is one of the easiest polls I've voted on. Poltergeist is a fun horror movie and it does have some creepy moments, but The Exorcist is the one that really manages to scare me on a deeper level....

It really is. Birdemic is an incompetent poorly acted mess, but I can laugh at how stupid and cheap it is. Birdemic 2 clearly tried to recreate the same energy on purpose, and it just comes off as...

I was just poking fun at how the thread was pretty much becoming a Looney Tunes sketch all of a sudden. Didn't mean to derail it any further.

Re: No, Starship Troopers Is Not Brilliant Satire

I think it's a good satire, not necessarily a great one. The first half has a lot of funny jokes poking fun at war movie clichés, army propaganda and jingoistic narratives. By the second half the...

In university I had two that are not necessarily the most bizarre movies in the world, but probably uncommon in these kind of contexts. I used a scene from Friday The 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes...

I've only seen the remake of The In-Laws actually. It was okay, but a little too silly at times and very uneven tonally. Michael Douglas and Albert Brooks manage to keep it afloat. I'd love to check...

Takoma11 Fair point. I also think it's possible for a film to both have elements that are of their time and those that still would work today.

For example with Lawrence Of Arabia, the casting of...
