Anything but Love, Actually

But have you seen Birdemic? Nothing is quite so wonderful in its awfulness.

I haven't, though it sounds worth seeking out. I like quite a lot of bad films. Love Actually isn't so much bad as meretricious evil shite.

Insurrection?! That is a bold statement owlswing.
A lot of people don't believe that the loch ness monster exists. Now, I don't know anything about zooology, biology, geology, herpetology, evolutionary theory, evolutionary biology, marine biology, cryptozoology, palaeontology or archaeology... but I think... what if a dinosaur got into the lake?

It's not such a bad Star Trek film but it's rare to see it nominated as one of the better ones. I quite like it, but I feel like it's a feature length episode more than a film. Wrath of Khan though... 100% agree

By the way, cheeky use of alternative thread so I don't have to break character. On the other one.. On that vile 'help please' thread that TW started on the Muslim topic, Rhiannon was joining in with my Star Wars quotes when she said 'I have a bad feeling about this'.

I have decided that engaging seriously with TW is a lost cause so I'm just going to carry on being silly.

Oh, I recognised the allusion - but I doubt very much that ~TW~ did!

One of those nights in a cold and grey hotel bed and Shaun of the Dead comes on and you think, just start watching it and it gets to the end and you think, Again!, Again!

The best?  To Kill a Mockingbird.

Many decades ago, my young son wanted to see 'Pete's Dragon', some kid's dinosaur film, and when I took him I could hardly stay awake. 

Then 'Airplane' came on as the second feature and I couldn't stop laughing!

I've seen it a few times since and it still makes me giggle - as corny as it is.

PEte's Dragon coupled with Airplane? That is one weird piece of scheduling!

Last weekend I took my 10 year old grand-daughter to the cinema. I lobbied for the remake of Pete's Dragon, which has had good reviews, whereas she was intent on seeing Finding Dory.

I'm sure you can guess whose choice prevailed!

Airplane was seen as a kid's film at that time, Trent, but they obviously under-estimated it's appeal to adults.

Looking up Wicky, Pete's Dragon cost $10m to make in 1980 and has taken in $32m, whereas Airplane cost $3.5m in 1977 and has taken $120m.  Someone made a mint there!

I though Airplane wax a 12A whereas Pete's Dragon was a U. As Trent says, odd double bill :-*

In 1980 there was no 12A classification, only U and A.

!2A didn't come in until the 90s

Really?

Many of the jokes in it are aimed at adults. I certainly don't think it was made for children.

It's now a 12A which would have made it a U when it first came out in 1980.  I assumed it would be a kid's film too but I was pleasantly surprised.

My youngest grandson loves the Simpsons, but that's full of adult humour too.

No, it wouldn't have made it a U. It was a 12a or PG then. Never a U
