If it's comedy you're after, I'd definitely recommend Airplane! if you haven't already seen it. Bloody hilarious film! :ahee:
I love it! But my flatmates think it will be boring. :whip:

Same with Blazing Saddles.

Shame, they're missing out on two great films.

I don't like Airplane either, never seen it fully. I just don't like the humour. I have also never seen Life of Brian - the first 15 minutes were so awful I couldn't bear it any longer. And it's funny because I like Monty Python.

You didn't like Airplane?! It's an absolute classic! One of the funniest films ever made, surely? (and don't call me Shirley)

Did anyone see Looper in the cinema, you know, the time travel one with Bruce Willis? Was it any good?
I thought it was fine and well crafted but nothing remarkable. It's a film that references different movies (but better movies than Looper). The final act is a little unbelievable IMO.

Airplane, the one where people post the clip of the two pilots, right?

yea I saw parts of it, and I just didn't laugh. And then the hating comes in, right, same with Simpsons for me, I don't like it and when people keep saying how good it is it makes me dislike it more kind of. Like, "this is bs, why do people love it so much"?

Not sure what you mean about posting a clip of two pilots (it was made back in 1980; before the internet), but I am referring to this movie.

Yes, I know what you mean. There's nothing more likely to make your views even stronger than when people tell you you're wrong!

It's only opinion. If you didn't think it was funny, fair enough.

Just because a film is pre-internet doesn't mean youtube has no clips of it.



This is the clip I meant.

Sure. Obviously!

It's just that you said

which sounds like you are referring to something that happens in the film

Just like you might say, "Shawshank, the one where the guy breaks out of jail"

Do you find any 70s/80s comedies amusing?

Holy Grail

I used to like Police Academy and The Naked Gun, not so much any more.

I'm about to watch Satyajit Rays Apu Trilogy, after holding off for quite a long time.

Last three films watched:

Key Witness, 1947 - 7/10

Solid noir thriller, can't fault it.

Born Yesterday, 1950 - 8/10

Judy Holliday's performance in that film made me glad to add her to my favourite actresses list. Her voice is so irritating that you can't help but love it.

Glengarry, Glen Ross, 1992 - 8.5/10

Great performance from Ed Harris playing his usual forte of a tough, angry jerk. I thought the dialogue was perfect, in the sense that every line seemed completely natural. The character of Sheldon Lavigne was probably one of the best portrayals of a truly pathetic man I've ever seen.

Want. :puppyeyes: Did you get this on Criterion? I know they did an edition of The Music Room, but not sure about the trilogy.

On Glengarry, Glen Ross, yeah, Mametspeak is pretty distinctive in its realism. :yep: Makes it pretty hard to direct/perform! :p:

Think I'll watch Argo tonight, on a mission to watch all the Best Picture nominees before the Oscars. Ones I've seen so far are in bold.

Amour
Argo
Beasts Of The Southern Wild
Django Unchained (seeing tomorrow)
Les Miserables
Life Of Pi
Lincoln
Silver Linings Playbook
Zero Dark Thirty

From the ones I've seen so far, Silver Linings Playbook is my favourite, just in front of Les Mis.

Dude, this is a great idea! I'm gonna do that too! I have no more exams after thursday or uni so i can stay up for the whole oscars too. Epic idea!

Like the last two years, I too am on the same mission. :five: Have to say, Beasts of the Southern Wild is the current frontrunner for my personal pick. :p: Highly doubt it will win at the actual awards, though.

+1 on not liking airplane. Its just a series of one liners and visual gags that attempt to beat you into submission! Being able to see the unfunny punchlines so blatantly makes it all the less funny. There may be some merit in that approach (afterall, Tim Vine and Milton Jones still have jobs), but I find it juvenile and charmless.

Its like the jokes in Christmas crackers. I can see there is a joke there, but it's not in the slightest bit funny.

Django Unchained was sold out when we got to the cinema so we had to see Gangster Squad instead.



My god. Is it supposed to be a parody? Because it was so cliche I kept thinking that they couldn't possibly be for real.
