And on topic, Highlander is a fun movie to add to the list.

After having watched Highlander 30 some odd times over a week in order to do a film analysis paper (lighting, shot type, camera angle, etc. etc. and the intended effect of such to be imparted to the viewer) I really can't watch the movie any more ... and I used to love it.

Back on topic.

More comedies (did I mention I kinda like comedies?) ... and I can't believe no one has mentioned any John Cusack comedies yet, so here you go ...

Better Off Dead - John Cusack as a teen with issues who meets a French exchange student Diane Franklin. Quirky comedy from Savage Steve Holland.

One Crazy Summer - John Cusack as a teen with issues who meets a guitar-playing hippiesque Demi Moore. Quirky comedy from Savage Steve Holland.

Hot Pursuit - John Cusack as a teen who tries to catch up with girlfriend's family on a Caribbean vacation. Kind of a comedy of errors comedy in a lot of ways.

Tape Heads - John Cusack and Tim Robbins as two security guard, high school graduates turned video producers. Quirky comedy and the Swanky Modes! Actually Sam Moore and Junior Walker, but still, the Swanky Modes!!

Gross Pointe Blank - John Cusack as a hit man who goes to his 10 year high school reunion. Great comedy with a great 80's soundtrack.

Oh, one other classic, though not John Cusack (the film class I mentioned reminded me of it.

The Party - Peter Sellers as an Indian actor accidentally sent an invite to a party after having ruined film production. Freaking hilarious, 1960's era comedy.

Pretty sure you need to be dead dead to enjoy that one.

Nope, still sucks.

Run Ronnie Run was a lot funnier, if less well-known, IMO.

I f!#@ing LOVED 3 oclock high. Great movie that doesn't call for a lot of intellect, although you need to follow it a bit. Also super young Yeardley Smith.

It's witty, too. The first time I watched the cold open, where Casey Siemaszko has to microwave the sweater so he can wear it school, I was all, "I've never seen a movie edited like this before!"

It's like Ferris Bueller if Ferris Bueller was a film noir. I love that move.

There's a fifth one? I need to watch that.

Ah, like how there were never, ever any sequels to Highlander. None. At all.

Eh, Highlander 3 and Endgame weren't bad.

Kinda weird that they made a 3 before making a second one though.

Dr. Strangelove. Classic, and yet, somehow, timely, and, more importantly, fun.

Dark City is atmospheric as all heck, and not quite as grim as The Crow.

A Knight's Tale is also fun, and better by far if you turn your brain off and care nothing about history or anachronism or whatever.

Only the third one of that list is worthy of brain-dead watching... the other two are rather thought-provoking. Ebert of Siskel and Ebert fame picked Dark City as the subject of one of his annual lectures. The DVD has it on there as a special feature.

I totally disagree; Highlander 3 was dreck, and Mario Van Peebles is about as scary a villain as Tickle Me Elmo. Highlander 2 was unabashedly enthusiastic about being a comedy spoof of the first one, and in my mind it succeeded admirably in that.


Really. It is true. There never was a Highlander sequel. Which we should all be grateful for.

More awesome mindless entertainment I finally got to see:
Ash vs. Evil Dead. If you liked the original Evil Dead trilogy, this show is a must-see.

Another suggestion (for people who understand Swedish only, I'm afraid): Känn Ingen Sorg - hilarious coming of age story based on the song lyrics of Håkan Hellström. Best opening scene of any Swedish movie, ever.
