@curtise While it has romance and comedy in it, there are so many other elements that I can’t say it is a romcom. Of course, I don’t know a woman who doesn’t enjoy it, so I clearly can’t say it isn’t a romcom. On the other, I’ve only met one man who didn’t like it (I suspect he either lied or is secretly a bunch of eels in disguise), so I clearly can’t say it is a romcom.
@DaFrogMan Stranger than Fiction is one of my favorites. I saw it in theaters just a few days after I registered to go to Space Camp (the week long adult program). So the “You’re never too old for Space Camp” line made me cheer a little.
A Boy and his Dog.
Featuring young Don Johnson.
I tried to show that (on VHS, of course, state-of-the-art at the time) to someone I was hoping would become my girlfriend. Maybe not the best movie pick for that…
@chienfou@pmarin Actually, I saw it in the theater when it came out with my BF at the time, so no. I just remember it being pretty misogynistic. I’m a big sci fi fan, so I was looking forward to it. Grrr.
@chienfou@mc2d2000 It’s been a while since I watched it. I think he weaves the story through the performance. I don’t want to spoil the reveal. It’s a compendium of performances at colleges where he takes questions from the audience, tells movie-making anecdotes and behind the scenes stories about making his films. Jason Mews joins him and talks about his personal life and relationship with Kevin in and outside of the films.
If you like KS and his sense of humor, it’s funny stuff. In a Fast Times at Ridgemont High, don’t take life so seriously way. I’ll see if I can find the parts on WWW and post time codes.
There’s a sequel, Another Evening with Kevin Smith, and a third one, A Threevening with Kevin Smith.
Playing By Heart. It has Gillian Anderson, Sean Connery, Angelina Jolie, Ellen Burstyn, Jon Stewart, Dennis Quaid, and Ryan Phillipe. And best of all Blanche, the one eyed cat, but it’s her good eye so don’t worry about ol Blanche!
Forget Paris. It’s old (okay, I’m old) but it’s a fun one. I like how it’s told primarily in flashbacks of a group of friends at a dinner party telling “Micky and Ellen stories”, right up until the end.
