If I had to recommend a random classic, it would be Better Off Dead-great show.

I am SO happy that this one was mentioned! What an awesome movie!

I had a movie night with my mom yesterday, and rented The Lake House and A Prarie Home Companion. I liked both of 'em. You probably won't expect what you'll get out of Prarie, but I still liked it. As for pretty good movies, I'd say The Hudsucker Proxy (or any of the Coen movies. Awesome!)

Besides 40 Year Old Virgin (thank you, Steve) by far the funniest movie I have ever seen is Super Troopers. I can watch it over and over and still laugh out loud. Another movie I never tire of is Boondock Saints. Definitely in my top 5. But, my number one favorite is Good Fellas. Absolutely perfect movie.

Nov 6th 2006

Some great flicks I saw recently:

Shaun of the Dead - hilarious, it was on Comedy Central recently (the only really funny movie with a Halloween theme in a long time)

Borat - saw this today, painfully funny and just wrong on so many levels (but well worth the wait)

Nov 6th 2006

THPJ - Yes on the Borat! So great, yet I do feel scarred for life.

Nov 6th 2006 edited

but don't forget Office Space, which in a way is the cinematic bridge between Dilbert and The Office.

Office Space is the best. There are so many quotable lines in that movie. Between Office Space and The Office, I don't have to think about talking anymore.

Here's something fun, but you'll only appreciate it if you've seen Office Space. Go here

It's a trailor for Office Space. I don't want to give anything away. Just turn up your volume and watch it. Unbelievable.

Nov 6th 2006

I saw Borat too. It was really, really funny. But I am also disturbed. But, go see it. Really.

Nov 7th 2006 edited

I like a lot of movies that no one else likes, and lots of what I see gets better with multiple viewings.

The Big Lebowski, which I hated the first time I saw and now adore.

Galaxy Quest is a Star Trek spoof with really good actors in it: Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman... I have been forbidden from watching it anymore when my husband is home. Tim Allen is unbelievable as the Shatner character.

Ever After is my favorite of the Drew Barrymore romantic comedies. It's totally hoaky and I cry with happiness at the end every time. I just watched Fever Pitch last night and liked it well enough.

Sixteen Candles--Anthony Michael Hall really is the King of the Dipsits, misspelling intentional.

Dangerous Liaisons is twisted and attractive and multilayered and I would love to talk with someone in-depth about Valmont.

I have to second Office Space and Amelie and Clueless.

Rushmore is a no-brainer--I second that one, too.

Nov 10th 2006 edited

Flicka.

I have no intention of EVER seeing this movie. But when I heard the title of this stupid as hell looking horse movie I couldn't help thinking of The Office.

"Dinkin Flicka, Going Mach 5, Fleece it out. You know. Things us 'negros's' say."

Nov 10th 2006

wow, that's exactly what i thought when i heard there was a movie called flicka! i'm glad i'm not alone :)

dinkin flicka, man

Nov 15th 2006

Saw Borat last night. Like others said, incredibly wrong, and incredibly funny. Any movie where three different groups of people walk out because they're so appalled is OK by me.

Nov 20th 2006

Has anyone seen the film Gaylords Say No?

But seriously, the best film I saw recently was Brick - a very clever mix of film noir and high school melodrama.

Nov 20th 2006 edited

I've been waiting for Brick to arrive - it's been on my Netflix since it came out in August!! It looks fantastic. I also have Slither on there as well - can't wait for that one. I have to second Shaun of the Dead, Rushmore, Donnie Darko (I recommend the original cut, not the director's, but it's a personal choice), The Big Lebowski, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Jarhead, Office Space (oh. my. god. Plaid, that was absolutely hilarious, thank you so much for that!!), Clueless, and pretty much everything else that's been mentioned. I really want to see Half Nelson as well.

My personal fave is Fight Club - I never get sick of that one. Pretty much anything by the Coen brothers, David Fincher, Wes Anderson, Christopher Guest, and David O. Russell (Huckabees is great, and definitely see Three Kings). I just recently saw Wet Hot American Summer and it's so funny. Also, I cannot stress enough how great Lollilove is and I'm not just saying that for Jenna Fischer's sake. It is so, so funny. I rented it and ended up buying it because I knew it would require multiple viewings.

Nov 20th 2006

Deifinetly Shaun of the Dead - if you haven't seen it yet, try to catch "Spaced" also with Simon Pegg. Just another awesome Brittish tv show

Nov 20th 2006

I just watched Lollilove and I'm going to have to buy it. Given that I own exactly one other movie on DVD, that's a lot to say. It was way, way better than I thought it would be. (Not to dis anyone, but I had modest expectations which were met and exceeded. And the interview with James Gunn about becoming a script writer is great -- I give the man mad respect. He's a very funny dude, too.)

Nov 20th 2006 edited

I signed up for Netflix a few weeks ago and am purposely renting stuff I'd never seen like Scarface. Maybe it's me, but I just don't get all the hoopla surrounding this movie (although Pacino was very good in it). It's the kind of movie that I guess I'm glad I saw (being an American classic and all), but not one I'd ever care to see again.

Something else I had never seen is Old School. Don't know why I didn't see it when it was first released at the theater but I have a feeling it might have been because someone told me it was really lame but I loved it - thought there were some really good LOL moments and I'm easily entertained so I could watch Vince Vaughan do his "Wedding Crashers" type character over and over and still crack up.

Nov 20th 2006

Pan, I second your thoughts on Lollilove. I had low expectations and watched it purely to ogle Jenna, but I ended up liking it on its' own merits. I also thought James Gunn was very funny. I'm debating buying the DVD, supposedly the extras are great but I watched it on pay-per-view so I didn't see them.

Nov 20th 2006

That's hilarious JLJ, mainly because I got the movie for the same reason, the eye candy. It's a funny and well-done little film, though. I love that the homeless dude with the spaceship was real!. The extras on the DVD are worth it too.

And James Gunn's funniest line came in one of his earlier blogs where he does a Q&A with fans. One of them said his wife was hot and asked what it was like (expletive deleted) her. He replies something along the lines that it was a rude question and totally inappropriate. Then he adds, "But it's great."

Ha! I saw that too, he's a lucky SOB. He has a recent blog where he gives his advice for people who want to be entertainers and it was very interesting.

I don't remember the exact context of the scene, but my favorite part of his in Lollilove was when he talked about how creating art made him feel Christ-like, "except that Jesus is basically made up but I'm a real person".

Back to current movies, I'm hoping to see Casino Royale over the holiday weekend, I've heard nothing but good things about it.

Nov 20th 2006

Oh, the extras on the Lollilove dvd are totally worth it. I wasn't too familiar with James Gunn before seeing the movie, but his twisted humour (as well as Jenna's) is awesome. The deleted scenes, the interviews, the commentary, all of it is totally worth watching and just as funny as the actual movie. There's a scene (this is shown during a behind-the-scenes doc) that they cannot get through because James insists on saying something really inappropriate every single time, and Jenna gets really frustrated with him. But he won't stop. It killed me - I was crying-laughing. Seeing James in this is what convinced me to rent Slither - I figured it had to be pretty funny if he wrote it (haven't seen it yet, but I'm looking forward to it arriving in the mail).

Also, the list of potential charities....classic. Really take the time to read it and all of the comments written on it. So funny.

Dec 2nd 2006

Just finished watching A Prairie Home Companion, Robert Altman's last film. Very weird, funny, odd, and fitting, as the great man's last completed movie. Highly recommend it if you like Altman's style

Dec 2nd 2006

I finally got around to Rear Window last night. Good Hitchcockian fun; loved the limited point of view.

Dec 3rd 2006

Nathan, I feel your praise for Rear Window is not nearly extravagant enough. Top five adjectives / adjective phrases I can think of off the top of my head for Rear Window:

  • Totally sweet
  • Hot sauce
  • Jawesome
  • Finest kind
  • TrĂ©s bomb

It finished first in Phoebe-the-Cat's Top Ten Movies Containing a Ball of Yarn (or Other Toylike Object) for 1954, despite not having any objects that remotely resemble cat toys. That's how good that movie is.

Ah, but remember the dog...maybe Phoebe has a mean streak.

And yes, you are absolutely right, I failed to do it justice. Rear Window was positively amazing.

Dec 3rd 2006

I just saw For Your Consideration tonight at the movies, and I was excited for it as I am a fan of all Christopher Guest films. I knew Ricky Gervais was in, but what floored me was when I saw John Krasinski in it. I know it's probably been mentioned here before but it startled me so much I couldn't help laughing. He was only in for maybe 30 seconds, but since I don't tend to keep up to much with all the office stars side projects it was a nice surprise. I don't want to spoil any of it for you, but I'll just say he appeared very "Jim" in his role.

Anyhow the movie was great. Fred Willard ofcoarse the best part, as he always is in all Guest's movies, the man entirely steals the show.

My movie suggestions ... Anything with Bill Murray in it I love, especially Bill Murray in any Wes Anderson Films. Scrooged for this time of year, is great. Snatch, Lock, Stock, & two Smocking Barrels, I always find kinda dark and funny. Plus I enjoy all the horrible in a good way of the Evil Dead Movies. Love Those, and speaking of Bruce Cambell I would also recommend Bubba Ho-tep

All Woody Allen, uh all 1970's Woody Allen and Mel Brooks films are favorites.

I would also recommend if you are on Blockbuster to pick up all the MST3k "movies", at the very least Mitchell with Joe Don Baker, because watching those are just as great as any 'comedy' you are likely to find anywhere else.

Dec 4th 2006

DwightfromtheFuture, I could not agree more. Rear Window is amazing! As is anything with Jimmy Stewart. I would pay to see him read the phone book!

stillme, high five to you! Scrooged is one of my favorites. Good 80's fun! Also, I hope they will bring FYC to a theater around here sometime soon. We had plans to go see it opening night....and then it never came here! Gar!

I saw Casino Royale this weekend, and WOW. I'm not a huge Bond fan, but that was a great movie.

Dec 4th 2006

Gummo- A little known film. If you have never had the pleasure of viewing this masterpiece go buy it, watch it then lock it in a box for a year and then watch it again. It will change your life.

Dec 4th 2006

A lot of people have given props to the Coen brothers. I'll be no different.

Miller's Crossing is my favorite Coen Bros film of all time. Therefore it is one of my favorite movies of all time.

Dec 4th 2006

Miller's Crossing is great. My fav Coen Brothers will probably always be Lebowski. That will remain my favorite movie ever until...well, probably forever. Anyone know what they are up to? I would love another one with Goodman.

Dec 4th 2006

You know, the Lebowski sweatshirt I ordered as a gift for my brother arrived in the mail today! I am thrilled with it. It's a spoof of those "Obey" graphics with that face that stares at you. It's the Dude and it says "Abide." He just moved to a colder clime (to Berkeley from San Diego, and it is colder there) so I hope he likes it. He also is a fan of the film.

Dec 4th 2006

Someone mentioned Woody Allen above, I recently saw Match Point, a recent movie of his with Scarlett Johansson and some other people. A little slow for my tastes but a good story and an interesting ending I did not expect.

Saw Casino Royale over Thanksgiving weekend. Daniel Craig was great, the Bond girls were great, the storylines were great, and the action scenes were great. Summary - a great movie I would recommend to anyone.

Most recent movie I saw was Deja Vu with my favorite actor, Denzel Washington. It was directed by Tony Scott. Tony Scott movies are a bit of an acquired taste but I love them. This had a story that was slightly implausible at best and completely implausible at worst. But it was so well done that I enjoyed every minute of it.
