How has no one mentioned:

BLAZING SADDLES
YOUNG FRANKESTEIN
MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL

...Only three of the funniest movies ever made.

Saw MR. HOLMES last night, the Much Better Half treated me to dinner and a movie. It was brilliant. Ian McKellan is a treasure. A shame no one thought to cast him as Sherlock 40 years ago.

I agree with you on all points. It is nearly impossible to find an uncut version of Blazing Saddles though. Every copy I find has the water tower scene where they trick Mongo into getting into a deep diving suit in the water tower, then cut the air off.
If you haven't seen the movie Neverwas (on Netflix) starring among others Ian McClellan, you really need to. He gives one of the strongest performances of his career in that movie. He becomes the character so completely that you forget who he really is. That being said, I think I may watch it now while I am waiting for "9:00 am PST" to happen so I can confirm my order with Keith Ighner @ Carvin.

I listed Monty Python in my top 5 ;)

I could list a bunch more, but I'm looking to see if any from my unlisted choices are posted by others :)

Creepshow? I thought you skipped comedies? :) Evil Dead? Heck yeah. Can't wait for Ash Vs The Evil Dead (with Bruce and Lucy Lawless)!!

I'm in a unique position compared to all of my friends. Having never seen any of the Star Wars movies (extra funny because Spaceballs is one of my all-time favorite movies), I get to see the entire series for the first time in chronological order of their story. The month of November will be two movies a week, for the first 3 weeks of November. Starting with The Phantom Menace, and ending with Return of the Jedi. The middle week will be interesting because I'll be going right from Revenge of the Sith to Star Wars: A New Hope.

I take Deadites very seriously. :wink: And yeah, can't wait until Halloween for Ash. I don't do cable so I'm at a loss on how I'm gonna get Starz in the house.

Which versions will you be watching? We're in a debate on another BBS over the tinkering Lucas has done to the films. You know, the CGI additions to the original trilogy. Put it this way, I don't remember Hayden Christensen in ROTJ. Keep your eyes open.
