I think there's a reference to a candle in it. Does that make it a chick flick?
No, I didn't know that. I thought it was a movie about old war veterans or something. That's what the title makes me think of.
It's more a movie about an unstoppable killer....killing people.
Ok guys, I got confirmation on one: watched The Big Lebowsky with my wife today and when it was over, she said, "well, that was pointless".
I mean, it is. Pointless. But that the point! Chicks don't get it.
Also, if she hadn't been there, I would have watched the beach blanket scene a few more times.
As opposed to what? An unstoppable killer drinking tea and playing tiddly winks?
I don't think Reservoir Dogs has been mentioned yet Mr.Red, or just about any Tarantino movie come to think of it.
Kill Bill vol 1 and 2
From dusk till dawn
To name but a few.
Had to think about that one for a sec. You mean Jackie Treehorn's "garden party"
...and yes, pointlessness is the point. Was there a point to Smokey and the Bandit? No. But it's still good, why? Because 'Murica, that's why.
hahaha, yessss ...
Yea, I kinda figured that after the first five minutes. I guess the opening gave it away.
Well, his flipping a coin bit could be considered an advanced version of tiddly winks.
All I know is I'm seeing a few titles on here that I haven't seen that I'm going to have to check out.
Between that and all the new craft beers I'm going to have to try it's really going to cut into my running time.
Fortunately I can remain barefoot while drinking beer and watching movies...so there's that.
About half of the movies mentioned my wife actually likes to watch. She usually insists upon keeping away from aliens and horror. She also doesn't like to watch Mission to Mars due to the stranded scene with the husband and the wife tries to save him. She hates that scene.
Does it concern you that your wife doesn't like to see one attempt a husband rescue?
Mars Attacks! ^o^
No, the first time we watched it she didn't think anything bad was going to happen. But when she was so close but failed to rescue him, it was the husbands response that made my wife very upset and I got the look that if I were ever in a situation concerning my own life I had better not have the same idea.
Did anyone list "This is Spinal Tap"?
You just did. That's actually part of the reason why I started this thread - because I know that I've seen lots of great movies, but can't remember them all...
Memento? or is that otnemeM?
I actually like Cannonball Run II better than the first one. Gotta love Daisy Duke driving a color-changing Lamborghini Countach
Independence Day - this late in the game, I'm assuming I must have somehow overlooked an earlier mention of this one.
Princess Bride (scoff if you will, Luddites among us, but there is no better swordfight scene on film, and no better place for more directly applicable quotes to apply to life) - if you haven't seen it, you've missed Rob Reiner's best - don't let the name put you off the trail of this one.
Technically not movies, but everything on film starring the 3 stooges or Laurel and Hardy.
