Re: Talk About Movies: Part 4

Do not agree. It’s been a couple years, and it’s no Happy Gilmore, but Billy Madison is quality. Sandler, Farley and Norm doing their thing is a good time. Obviously the plot is dumb but it also mostly makes sense?

Re: Talk About Movies: Part 4

On the plus side, in pre-movie chatting around the fire pit, something caused me to make the reference, "yeah, he got the steak knives."

One neighbor had no idea what I was talking about, so I was able to loan them the DVD for Glengarry Glen Ross. So maybe I offset the other a little.

Probably a top 5 movie for me period. This along with Once Upon A Time In America.

I font why this is probably one of my favorite scenes of all time.

Sometimes I like Adam Sandler, but this was just terrible. I realize it's not serious moviemaking, but the story should at least hold together a little bit.

Kind of too bad, it was the neighbors' last night before they move. Would've much preferred to send them out with something at least watchable.

Fortunately, I had a fridge full of beer, so could hang out and tend the fire pit at least.

If you can't drink Adam Sandler funny, you're doing it wrong.

I'm shocked that someone like Dominic has seen it. I avoid watching movies that I'm pretty sure will be something I won't like.

great films but people in their mid and early 40s now possibly didn't like see them as they came out as 80, 81, 85 releases, more like a borrow the older brother's vhs during a sleepover kind of introduction

just realized tommy boy and black sheep came out same years as billy madison and happy gilmore - could have sworn they were a good 5+ years earlier

Re: Talk About Movies: Part 4

I am 45 and I had Caddyshack, Stripes, and Spies Like Us memorized before I was a teenager. I don't remember how I started watching them bc my dad wasn't a big fan of those movies.

Watched Fincher's The Game last night....easily his worst film, even worse than that Benjamin Button crap. So massively stupid.

Re: Talk About Movies: Part 4

Minding the Gap Documentary about three kids who grew up in rough homes who share a love for skateboarding. Then you do some research and you find out that Liu, who shoots the movie, didn't even meet the other two until they were in their 20's. The film used old footage from the two main characters and integrated it into Liu's footage when they are older. I enjoyed the skate footage, but not much else.

John Wick I've seen this numerous times but the first 30-45 minutes of this movie is awesome. I love the way John Wick is built up and twice it is just by saying "oh".

He seems to be a polarizing director. I've seen both those flicks on "Best" lists. Did you like Seven or Fight Club?

Se7en and Fight Club are both very good movies. I just couldn't get past the things I was asked to believe in The Game. It was just....stupid.

Re: Talk About Movies: Part 4

Portrait of Jason by Shirley Clarke is strange and fascinating. Also watched The Magnificent Ambersons, which I hadn't seen since I was a kid. Agnes Moorehead is fabulous in it. Great extras on the Criterion Chanel as well.
