SAS Movie Review – True Grit

SAS = Short Attention Span – basically if you’re like me, you don’t want to read a 3 page review of a movie that’s filled with dictionary look-up words and talks in-depth about the subtle nuances and how they correlate to post-modern, neo-classical, Machiavellian, or whatever random crap that was probably taught to me in school years ago, but has since been replaced with useless knowledge about things that would only help me in a People magazine crossword puzzle.

The point is, I will only write a simple review, nothing more than a page, and nothing that will ruin any aspect of the movie (I hope). So enjoy…

TRUE GRIT

With only 45 days to go until the Oscars and the nominations to be announced very soon, I’ve made it my civic duty to see every important film that could be/should be nominated and let you know if it’s not only Oscar worthy, but worthy of your time.

Tournament Showdown – Movie Comedies

I’m not sure how or why, but I got emailed a list of the Top 100 comedies of all-time as put together by Bravo. So, either out of sheer boredom, or because it’s really fun to do, I’ve decided to have a 64-movie tournament to decide the funniest movie of all-time (at least according to Bravo’s top 100). Movies will be seeded based on Bravo’s rankings and will be judged on your votes and mine, which include several factors; laugh-out-loud moments, memorable/quotable lines, re-watchability, and coin toss if none of the other factors help pick a winner.

Now before I begin, I should mention that upon further research, this list was compiled in 2006, which makes it even stranger that it wound up in my mailbox. So this list will not have any of the great comedies of the past 3 years, such as, The Hangover, Tropic Thunder, Pineapple Express, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Step Brothers, Little Miss Sunshine and Borat. Also, this apparently was a TV special where they showed clips and did a countdown, so it wasn’t just a random list posted on their website.

Also, this is Bravo’s list, not mine, and there are some definite omissions to the list that warrant mentioning. Let’s bow our heads and acknowledge these forgotten favorites: The Money Pit, Planes Traines and Automobiles, Liar Liar, Orange County, Home Alone, Spaceballs, Coming To America, Hot Shots, Tommy Boy and Billy Madison. Wow, actually I could probably make a list of Top 100 comedies that aren’t on Bravo’s list. Hmm, possible future blog?  With all those great comedies missing from the list, I wonder if that explains why Bravo has since removed the list from their website.

Here’s the Top 100 list according to the people at Bravo who have all since been fired for putting together such a terrible list and not knowing what true funny movies are.

Let’s see who makes the field of 64. Continue reading
