Rob.....what the fuck? :D

I am putting it out there that Groundhog Day is the best comedy ever created. Bar none.

Groundhog day is good but I'm sorry doesn't hold a candle to "Kung Pow: Enter the Fist". If you haven't seen it here are some epic quotes to get you started....


"Face to foot style, how'dja like it?!"

"The tiny net is a death sentence, IT'S A NET AND ITS TINY!"

"What do you get when you cross an owl, with a bungee cord? My ass!"

Good to see someone giving Back To The Future III some lovin'. Easily my favourite of the series, and the only one I can really be bothered to watch these days.

Re: Favorite movies?
 
Having watched The Big Lebowski again the other night, I have now formed the opinion that it could be the funniest film I've ever seen, and thus, would have to rank amongst my top ten ever.

Favourite line(s) would be;

Donny: "Are these the Nazis, Walter?"
Walter:"No, Donny, these men are nihilists. There's nothing to be afraid of"...
"Are they gonna hurt us, Walter?"
"No, Donny. These men are cowards."

and

Walter: "Smokey, this is not 'Nam. This is bowling. There are rules."

Absolutely wonderful film.

Your list was pretty interesting, but why AI? I often view it as a bad revision of pinocchio.

it covers all the important and uncomfortable social aspects of human-seeming robots.

I don't like Pinocchio. Pinocchio spends his life trying to integrate into a frightening world of people who want to hurt and exploit him.

David in AI just wants to be human so he can go home, and realizes that he is damned and chooses his dream anyway.

Also, as a film that was literally fetched from the lost & found, it fascinates me to see Kubrick's vision in the hands of another director. Spielberg I thought did a great job. I don't think AI is a great Hollywood film, I DO think it is a great Sci-Fi film.

I also understand most people find it laborious and grim, and/or uneven.
