Alright, "nothing to do with wrestling", huh? Well let's try for the first movie recommendation thread in this neck of the WCMB...


Just got done watching Pleasantville. Loved this movie. First word that actually comes to mind is "Capra-esque". Great story, great performances, and I even had a quiet little mark-out moment when Don Knotts showed up. Definitely going on my list of movies I'm gonna watch again.

...and since I suck at reviews, I'll leave it there. :-` Anybody else got some pointers?

btw, YES. IMO one of the best movies of the past few years. Actually a dark satire disguised in Capra-esque clothing. William H Macy outdoes even his usual brilliance.

Pretty much the way the movie had it. Two-dimensional. Mindless conformity.

Or so I hear.

Hey, MFD. Word of advice. If you read 1984, that nice Big Brother fella? He's supposed to be the heel.

I've spoken well of this movie before on the WC Board, but if you haven't seen Ed Wood, you've missed one great movie. Also, a movie I really like, is CB4. Think of it as a black Spinal Tap, I think it's still Chris Rock's best movie. It's no movie of the year, but funny as hell, and any movie that has both Chris Elliot and Phil Hartman in it can't be all that bad can it? BTW, both of those, CB4 and Ed Wood are on the top of my wish list for DVDs, Ed Wood Special Edition DVD should be out in a few months, but no word on CB4 yet.

Sort of sounds like high school in the 80's.

Mayatt,

It seems that if you are not watching John Wayne movies or Clint Eastwood movies that you aren't getting the proper culture, SO, if you spend more time on this Forum we will add culture and sunshine to your life and you can break away from the rut you are in.

I watched The Shootist,The Searchers, and McClintock recently. The Duke was the greatest.

Hey now, what about me? In the past month, no kidding, I've watched Hang Em High, High Plains Drifter, Tombstone, and The Cowboys on DVD, all of which I purchased. I'm in the process or purchasing every Clint Western on DVD I can find. He's my #1, although I have nothing but total respect for the Duke!

Aw, Dusty, you say the sweetest things sometimes.

Did I happen to mention that MY favorite John Wayne movie is El Dorado?

But see, Dusty, you had the first punk bands to save y'all. WE got stuck with that British romantic-pop-rockers-invasion thing. Adam Ant, Billy Idol, Duran Duran, etc. etc.

*shakes head to clear it*

Hey, I'm a child of the 80's, but I watched MORE than my share of Hee Haw as well! Buck Owens rules!
