  1. The food poisoning scene in Bridesmaids might be in the top five of hardest I’ve ever laughed moments.

  2. 302010 Reminding me exactly where I was 20 years ago and what I was doing. ‘A Knights Tale’ was part of my job interview for working at my local movie theatre. Being a tourist town and having both transportation and a permanent home would mean that I wouldn’t be gone in 3 months like other applicants almost guaranteed me the position.

    My interview consisted of 3 questions: “How far away do you live?” 20 minutes drive. “How are you going to get to work?” I have a car, and then the more unexpected question “We’re just about to pre-screen the film for our new movie, A Knight’s Tale, do you want to join us and you can start working after the weekend” Wow. Yes.

    I went home after the movie and bragged about how I’d seen the movie that wouldn’t start until the next day. I’d only work there about 3 years, but looking back I have so many memories of the next few years, the people I met, those I worked with. All my memories are centred around the films that were playing at the time. It was one of the best jobs I ever had and the next few years of the show are going to remind me of SO much.

  3. Michael Landon appears on Johnny Carson as he is dying of the big C and absolutely rocks the house with cancer jokes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fS_3SI-qBEw

    Switch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=luvJoAQjA4s This is such a random thing for MST3K to make a running gag but it’s just like them to make a running gag out of this.

    What is a film whose sequel you have seen but whose original you never watched? For me it’s FX2 as it was on cable and the idea of a Special Effects man who FOUGHT CRIME (or possibly terrorists?) super intrigued young me but it wasn’t good enough for me to ever seek out the original.
    What are some 30+ year old movies that feature technology we still don’t have but where they don’t treat it as sci-fi but just as something that _of course_ the people are using?

    Sisters. What is everyone’s theory for why there appears to be no lasting pop culture memory of this show?

    Sometimes They Come Back. What is the best TV MOVIE adaptation of a Stephen King story?

    Joyride a 1991 song that shows the 80’s will not die without a long long fight. https://youtu.be/xCorJG9mubk

    Sum 41 – Fat lip. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CMX2lPum_pg Oh man does this scream SUMMER OF 2001 to me.

    A Knight’s Tale. “High school basketball but with jousting.” What are some other “This is totally a sports film but it’s not about sports”-films?

    Robert Downey Jr. on SNL – It’s odd … I don’t think I knew enough of RDJ to form a mental image of him before Iron Man so to me the guy constantly in trouble with the law doesn’t quite register as the RDJ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E1U06P3H5yc

    Mario party three. I wonder if Nintendo will ever do a version of Mario Party where you can play every single game that was ever in a Mario Party the way they released a version of Smash that has every single character in every single Smash?

    Fritz Lang M 1931 High Definition HD. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_0C2Te59egQ Huh. I honestly never knew peter lorre as anything but an American actor but that makes perfect sense.

    What’s your favorite comedies with a question mark? That is to say; a film where you go, “It’s a comedy … I guess?” For me one of them is definitely Everything Must Go. It’s a solid film with a dark plot about a character in a horrible place that has enough moments of humor that it earns the question mark for me.

    Bridesmaids and High Fidelity being both “comedies that can make you a better person.” Any others?

    Smallville finale. I watched the first couple of seasons but then fell off. DId anyone here watch it all the way to the end? What was your favorite episode?

    Lonely Islands Jack Sparrow (feat. Michael Bolton). I love how irritated the Lonely Island’s crew gets. Are there any other good songs about being irritated? Not angry and furious but just irritated? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GI6CfKcMhjY
