    @DarkFae, your list reminded me of another great one by Stanley Kubrick, A Clockwork Orange! Makes me and my droogs want to commit some ultra-violence against some walkers whilst singing in the rain!

    I also remember a couple of Akira Kurosawa movies: Seven Samurai, The Idiot And Ran to just name a few.

    TBH I tried to watch A Clockwork Orange but couldn't get into it. I have this "thing" about clowns and mimes seem very much like clowns to me (like high class, upscale clowns but clowns just the same) and found that it didn't make any logical sense IMO. I'm not a big fan of movies like that and that's one of the reasons why I'm not a big of Alice in Wonderland either. I love movies that make you think, like 12 Monkeys (Willis/Pit) or Angel Heart (Rourke/De Niro/Bonet) but not movies that make you wonder if someone slipped something into your drink :wink:

    I've not ever seen napoliean dynamite. Thanks for the warning. I read the book and saw the movie IT and IT totally creeped me out. :s Clowns put me in mind of Gacy.

    Steven King's books are good as well. He's one of the few authors out there who's work tends to survive being translated on to the big or small screen. Not all the time but most of the time. :) I like silliness and comedy too. Some of my favorites are:

    The Friday movies (already been mentioned)
    All About the Benjamins
    The 5th Element
    Night at the Museum (all of them)
    50 First Dates
    Scary Movies (all of them)
    The Wedding Crashers
    The Princess Bride
    Raising Arizona
    Bring It On
    Heathers
    Teeth
    Good Luck Chuck
    Pump Up the Volume
    Pirates of the Caribbean (all of them)
    Serial Mom
    Iron Man (all of them) They might not be considered comedy but Robert Downey Jr makes me laugh.
    The Birdcage
    Indiana Jones and the.... (all of them)
    Clueless
    Mean Girls (both of them)
    Men in Black (all of them)

    @DarkFae and @mcbkhick's, who could forget The Shinning Jack Nicholson' s " Here's Johnny!". As for Gacy I saw one of his paintings in a macabre museum...and it was absolutely creeeepy!

    Every movie based on on his early works was awesome IMO! I have read many of his books and they are even better than the movies.

    Carrie (the original)
    Firestarter
    Christine
    Needful Things
    Pet Cemetery
    etc...

    I agree the world is definitely a better place with Gacy gone...he was a very sick person.

    Ever read Gerald's Game?
    Now that was a book!!! One of my most memorable reads by Stephen King! Love that man!!

    I remember when TWD first started? Ir maybe a couple seasons in.. Stephen King posted on FB that he would be writing & directing a season.. I was soooo excited lol
    Then later that day.. He wrote a big ol April Fools Day!! :joy: I was not happy lol

    Christine!!! My father actually bought a "Christine" many moons ago cause of that movie!! Beautiful car!! Thankfully it was nothing like the book/movie lol

    I was at one point making a big project of reading every book ever written in order written or as close to it as possible by Stephen King but I got as far as the end of Desperation and discovered Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy and switched over to other writers like J.R. Ward and Jim Butcher. I like King's writing style as well as his story crafting. He truly has a gift.

    Some trivia about Fast Times a Ridgemont High. Cameron Crowe got permission to go under cover as a student at Clairemont High school here in San Diego. The fictional name for the school was combination of the actual high school name or the community name and it's physical location on the ridge over looking Mission Bay. Hence Ridgemont,

    I went to Clairemont's rival high school Madison at that time. I had a few friends that went to Clairemont and we're not happy to find out about Crowe'so little charade. In fact the real life person that was supposedly Ratner sued.

    The Spicoli character although fictional was pretty accurate in far as some of the surfer stoners that went to both Clairemont and my high school! The scary funny thing is that movie nailed how it was in high school in the late 70s for any of the beach high schools!

    Second that about Robert Downey Jr. LOL

    He's funny.


    It's a shame about his substance abuse issues though because he seems to have a depth and level of talent that is really lacking in the movie industry ATM. I loved him in the Avenger movies too. I still laugh every time I think about him calling Thor (Chris Hemsworth) a "tourist".

  • MadPuppyMadPuppy Member Posts: 2,831
    He seems more genuine than most. He's the kind of actor that makes me forget he's acting.

    Such a waste if he'd hurt that.

    @MrSorrow, that is great collection! Only discovered some of those movies because of the Seven Samurai / Magnificent Seven connection.

    @SlickRick, oh yea! Who could forget Dolp Lundgren as Drago!

    Gotta add these three:
    1. Monty Python and the Holy Grail
    2. The Blues Brothers
    3. Airplane!

    Some of the best movie lines ever written with these movies!

    One of my favorites: "It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark and we're wearing sunglasses." B)
