Are you shading Missy's hair now? I cannot accept this.

Strangely enough, Scott's assessment of Sucker Punch is pretty much dead on. Really good movie, but man, I don't want to see it again. Maybe if you chopped off the beginning and ending so you don't get depressed about the storyline and just stick to the "chicks in corsets fighting zombie nazis" parts, then I could watch it all day.

And Scott - I thought the title was in refernce to how expense movie going is... Should I buy a house, rent one, or use the money to go see a movie?

@Oldbear: I've seen about half of those, and based on that alone I will have to see the rest. The only Mel Brooks movie I was only so-so on was High Anxiety.

@gekkobear: The Night of the Day of the Dawn ... um ... yeah ... sounds a bit like the Woody Allen flick "What's Up Tiger lilly". Have to see if I can find it somewhere.

(What's with all the bears?)

I have seen good movies and I have seen bad movies. I have seen movies that made me cry with fantastic writing and movies that made me weep at wasted money. I have seen funny, sad, exciting, nausea inducing, happy and hilariously dated movies, but if you want a really, really good bad movie, Monty Python is truly the only way to go. All of them. The full length movies AND the sketches.

Or BASEketball. Because Matt Stone's pert little butt is WAY hotter than Jason Statham's everything.

Panel 3 is hilarious! Panel 1 made me laugh, too.

I LOVE big trouble in little china. Like the woman in frame 4, my wife does not. Probably for much the same reason. Great comic!

@Clumber: Yes, there are zombies in Sucker Punch. They are steam powered.

You people are movie nerds. Get a life!

You would seriously question your spouse and friends over a movie?

Get some priorities.

Panel 3 had me laughing so hard. I'm still laughing just thinking about it. By the way, I'm a girl and I think Jason Statham movies are awesome!

Then there are movies that can’t be disregarded forever, but also are not promising enough to rent or buy. These are the movies you watch on TV. Seeing it for free means you’re only gambling your time, and you can declare a cut-off point. Mine is 15 minutes. If I haven’t seen anything good in the first 15 minutes, I’m not going to.
