If I wanted to discuss my taste in movies with you I would have chosen another thread ;-)

Favorite Coen-movie?

I have to disagree with you. John Wayne beats Jeff Bridges 10 ways to Sunday. If I had wanted to watch a touchy feely movie, I would have watched Twilight.

And Glen Campbell is a much better actor than Matt Damon!

And a tadpole is a better goblin than our esteemed Buromeister...


Raising Arizona

Worst remake of all time?

Psycho (1998) Big fat why, after the Hitchcock classic.

Worst movie adaptation of a novel?

The Seeker.

Best adaption of a fantasy novel for children / young adults ?

Scarab Sages RPG Superstar 2008 Top 4; Contributor; Publisher, Legendary Games

Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings (hey, we all know it's 'great literature,' but some would categorize it as a book for young people, so I'm using it)! Who knows, The Hobbit may dethrone it in a month.

(1) Funniest, (2) saddest, and (3) favorite death scenes for a secondary character (answer one of each or answer one and leave the others for the next poster - your choice)?

Spoiler:
For funniest, I'd go with either Sulley in Commando or the extremely extended death of Paul Reubens' character in Buffy the Vampire Slayer.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Hmmm, I'll go with the death of Samuel L. Jackson in the super-smart-shark masterpiece, Deep Blue Sea

Spoilers.

(2) saddest death scene - Wash in Serenity. Darn it, Joss Whedon!

(3) favorite death scene - Boromir in Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring. It was classic in the book. It was classic on film.

James question for someone else:

(1) Funniest, (2) saddest, and (3) favorite death scenes for a secondary character (answer one of each or answer one and leave the others for the next poster - your choice)?

(Note to James: I liked your choices for funniest. What is your saddest and favorite?)

Scarab Sages RPG Superstar 2008 Top 4; Contributor; Publisher, Legendary Games

James? JAMES? Who is this James of which you speak? :)

since I'm only answering part of the question I'll pass it on entire to the next poster, but I'll say...

Spoiler:
saddest is Ellie in Up or Charlotte in Charlotte's Web, favorite is probably Boromir as well

Grand Lodge

My bad! Sorry Jason.


1.) funniest- Lance Henrickson in Hard Target
2.) saddest- the ant in Honey I Shrunk the Kids
3.) favorite- Boromir is pretty good.

Favorite caveman movie.


Well, not my favorite, but the first date I ever took to the movies, back in the eighth grade, was Jillian Rocheleau to see Encino Man.

I, uh, don't remember much about the movie.

What was your first hawt date movie? And please provide sexy details.

[This question will stand for the next five posters.]

Date movies?

You Americans and your funny ways...


You don't take the ladies to the movies over in ol' Blighty?

I find that hard to believe.

Really, we're not just Americans with funny voices.

To be honest, 'Dating' doesn't really work that way in the UK. At least, not in my experience.

Generally, people tend to get together by being together at larger social gatherings or more informal situations and peeling off at some point. The semi-formal date invite so beloved of American TV is pretty rare around these parts.

I've been out for dinner/cinema/theatre/etc. plenty of times with people I am already going out with but the idea of taking someone out for a date seems a bit odd.

Just my experience.


Pelle Svanslös i Amerika.

We held hand through the entire movie. (Which is pretty hot when you're five.)

Yes, we were two people out of a half-dozen who went to the movie.

Maybe you are just Americans with funny accents?

Nope, you're Brits who don't know what's good for you. ;D

And, I suppose I would call that sitting next to someone at a cinema, rather than a date: the great thing about a shared language is that we can find loads of ways to misunderstand each other.


We did more than sit next to each other.

Goblins do it in the aisles!

General George S. Patton once said, "The British and Americans were two peoples separated by a common language."

I went to movies with girl friends and now my wife, but never for anything more than just going to see a movie we both wanted to see. Any romance was kept more private. :-)

So the question still stands for others.

Sneakers with Robert Redford. First date; first kiss. "awwww"

Fantasia 2000 at the Imax. I don't remember any of it. I remember that night though. Poe CD on repeat in the boom box. Strangely enough, I heard Trigger Happy Jack at the gym tonight :)

Secretary. This is the entirely wrong forum for those details.

Patton may have said it, but it originated with George Bernard Shaw, who, of course, wrote a hit musical about English.


Really? Only three people answered?

Fine, then, worst date movie?

If I ever run into that hussy who made me sit through Autumn in New York, well, I don't know what I'll do.

That, of course, was inspired by a greek play...


Greek myth. It didn't get on to the stage until the mid-18th century when turned into an opera by Jean-Philippe Rameau. (Thank you wikipedia!)

My worst date movie is the one that never happened. I got lost on the way to pick her up. (This was pre-cell phone.)

Since I am leaving for Mount Rushmore on Friday, my question is: Name 5 best movies set at a National Monument or Park.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

1. North by Northwest

Scarab Sages RPG Superstar 2008 Top 4; Contributor; Publisher, Legendary Games

2. The first National Treasure movie (hey, I really liked it), which takes the heroes to Indepdence Hall, among other places.

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

3. Logan's Run. There is a scene at the Lincoln Memorial

Jason, the first National Treasure is one of my favorites.


4.) Uh..err..Mars Attacks?

Sovereign Court

Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Modules Subscriber

Is there a Yogi Bear film?


I think there is.

Next posters asks next question!


Favourite Wes Anderson movie?

Sovereign Court Star Voter 2013, Dedicated Voter 2014

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Rushmore.

Round II what is in your DVD/VCR player right now?


Record of Lodoss War, Disc Two

How about you?

Sovereign Court Star Voter 2013, Dedicated Voter 2014

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Bronson.

Keep it going.


No, that was my question.

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

The Amazing Spiderman is in my DVD player.

Favorite movie with Denis Leary?

Scarab Sages Dedicated Voter 2013, Dedicated Voter 2014

Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Cards, Companion, Maps, Modules, Roleplaying Game, Tales Subscriber

In my DVD player: Burn Notice season 3 (keep that question going, please)
Favorite movie with Denis Leary: Wag the Dog.
Next three DVDs you intend to buy?

For me:

Caligula (Austrian aka uncut edition)
The Dark Knight rises
Apocalypse Now: Full Disclosure

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Next three DVDs I plan to buy:

1. Brave
2. MIB 3
3. Total Recall

Same two questions:

What is in your DVD player?

What is your next three DVD purchases?


Well, I can't promise anything but, the ones on my To Buy List that make me the most excited are:

Chinatown (I can't find my copy anywhere!)

Moon I really liked this and want to see it again

Red Cliff Same with this

What about you?

Scarab Sages RPG Superstar 2008 Top 4; Contributor; Publisher, Legendary Games

I don't think there's actually anything in my player at the moment. I think the most recent thing we watched was Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl.

As for buying movies... I've mostly stopped buying movies. I did have Brave in my shopping cart at Costco but ended up putting it back. I will probably buy The Dark Knight Rises, and buy a copy of Prometheus and/or Alien for my 14-year-old for Christmas.

In honor of the upcoming Hobbit movie, how about your 3 favorite fantasy films that are not Tolkien-related.


The Empire Strikes Back
Star Wars
Excalibur

Three favourite movies about King Arthur and/or his knights?

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

1. Excalibur

2. Monty Python and the Holy Grail

3. Knights of the Round Table (1953)

Back to Jason's question for the next poster, favorite three fantasy movies not Tolkien based?

My Choices:
Conan the Barbarian. (1982)

Willow

The Sword and the Sorcerer (1982)

Scarab Sages RPG Superstar 2008 Top 4; Contributor; Publisher, Legendary Games

I'll take the question, since I didn't answer it:

Dragonslayer

Excalibur

Sleeping Beauty

And I'll give it back again - same question, this time with the stipulation that "fantasy" = magic/swords and sorcery/non-high-tech, excluding magical things in the present day, future, or sci-fi milieus.


Star Wars has magic and swords. Not very much science, though. ;)

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Really? Advanced robotics, ion drives, particle beam weaponry, space travel, no there is plenty of science in Star Wars. It is that the science is taken for granted to focus on the story. And the story is a fantasy.


My definition of that would be that that's technology, not science. They could just as well have been horse-buggies, crossbows, and ocean-going sail-ships for the effect it has on the story.
