    The drummer for the now defunct Soul Coughing was motherfucking banananas. That dude embodied rhythm.

    Yes, I'm aware there's an extra "-na-" above.

    Man, everybody's seen NCFOM but me now.

    Me: "Want to go see a movie?"
    Girlfriend: "Let's go see Golden Compass!"
    Me: "I was thinking NCFOM."
    Girlfriend: "I don't feel like seeing a movie anyway."

    I love her, but Christ, we really need to work on her tastes.

    I've pretty much always been right, so after the fourth or so time of suggesting something fucking awesome, she pretty much trusts me with anything.

    Leave me alone with her in a room with a TV and a DVD player for five weeks. I'll straighten her out.

    My girlfriend never got to that point. It took months of pestering to get her to watch Leon. She didn't want to watch American History X until I mentioned that it had Ed Norton, and that was only after many attempts to get her to watch Fight Club. She still won't watch Fear and Loathing with me, she fails to admit that Juno was a better choice than our other options, it took me watching Nine Months with her until she'd watch Se7en with me.

    She loves every one of those movies now, but fuck if I can get her to watch another one in my shelf.

    It did help that the girl who's taste I am enhancing is Chinese and started with crap like CSI and the Saw movies.

    I've given her Dexter, Arrested Development, Futurama, Memento, Stranger than Fiction, and Inside Man.

    I used to think that having compatible taste with your partner mattered, but now I don't.

    Although I still wouldn't date a girl who was a fan of anything Dallas related. Just like, rules, you know.

    Also, she refuses to watch The Boondocks and Venture Bros. It's rather sad. I have to watch Home Improvement until she falls asleep and I can change the channel.

    I hate that question because I've seen so relatively few movies, at least good ones. I could go with 2001 because it's gorgeous and I don't mind just sitting there and letting it wash over me with its usual nothingness and its occasional periods of intensity. I saw Blood Wedding a month ago and that really made a strong impression on me. Alien will always be a favorite of mine, although it is beginning to slip a little bit in my judgment. I could go really pop culture with something like The Empire Strikes Back which is still a treat to watch today as it was all those years ago when I began watching it. Aguirre: The Wrath of God is always able to pack a punch when I watch it. Baraka is a visual feast that I always enjoy experiencing for all its experimental aesthetic perfection. I contend that The Elephant Man doesn't have a wasted shot in the entire film, looks beautiful, and has a truly touching ending. The Holy Mountain is crazy and fun to behold. Mr. Death is chilling and extremely well put together.

    So, to answer your question: shit, I dunno, Léon?

    Venture Bros. has its moments, and quite a few of them. It's a bit uneven, but it's some of the funniest work Warburton's ever done.

    That's actually exactly what I did against Feral. I had three of them, and instead of making a mediocre play I realized the leftovers included a whole bunch of high-scorers (like 3 of the 15 tiles left, plus lots of 2-4pters left). I swapped into the X, which would later be used in a 35-point play! :D

    Er, that is to say, I agree with you. :)

    @ Gim:

    Hmmm.

    I sat down, with conviction, to answer the same question years ago -- favorite favoritest ever everest movie -- and I settled on Happy Together by Wong Kar Wai rather concretely. I put together a top 5, which grew to 6, and still felt criminally short. So much technical expertise, so many personal moments between me and the filmmaker, so much brilliance, etc., but you know what actually happened? I realized that Happy Together was the most technically brilliant, most personally touching, and most politically progressive film I'd ever seen. All rolled into one. And I was satisfied. And all other movies offered huge rewards, but they didn't do what Wong Kar Wai did in his masterpiece of masterpieces.

    But besides that I've seen a few of the movies you've seen, obviously, but they all ring hollow on some level to me. To begin -- Mr. Death? Easily the worst of Errol Morris' films. I know it's all personal, but this is the game we play.

    #2 was All the Real Girls by the way, which I think any man who is age 22-30 should be desperately in love with just like me. Maybe non-white men can get a pass, but all white men age 22-30 should have that movie in their top 5.

    Obviously, if you're a married white man age 22-20, you're just a piece of shit.

    Spirited Away is surreal, with an ethereal, dreamlike quality that I just adore.

    Mulholland Drive is surreal like a goddamn nightmare. It's great.

    I thought about making a whole post to commemorate 20k posts, wherein I would grade D&D posters on a 10 out of 10 scale, but then again I would just be jacking the steez of this dude on my other board, and the mods would probably shut that shit down quick, and it would be more cliquey than D&D is really supposed to be.

    Then again, I might still do it, just to see how many feelings get hurt.

    yeah i mean everyone else would just be jealous that i got 10 out of 10
    Well, 10 out of 10 minus the mandatory -8 for living in Jersey, so 2 out of 10 in the end.

    Gim -- did you just hear my heart snap in half?

    Because it just did.

    Have you seen Gates of Heaven at least? Jesus! It's like you hate everything I stand for!

    (Errol Morris is perhaps my favorite director ever, but it's so hard to rank a non-fiction filmmaker against a fiction filmmaker. Morris blurs the two, but it's so hard to jump between when deciding what you love most. I went with the fiction makers in the end, because of that whole "fiction finds truths that reality can't" or whatever.)
