Is Fargo in your top 10?
« on: December 30, 2021, 07:07:50 PM »
Maybe it's me but it's pretty close to a perfect film and perhaps top 5 all-time.  The cast is phenomenal.  Love the guy who plays Wade.

Ooops.  Sorry.  Don't know how to move to superbar.

Items a great film, maybe not top 5.
However, the TV show is in my top 5 and is a masterpiece.

You delete your entry…..you go to superbar….you start a new topic on favorite movies. But, I think you actually may have the ability to post this where it belongs prior to this.

Gotta be in my top 10.  A great, great film.  And you are right, the guy who plays Wade is phenomenal. 

Taking a stab at 10, in no particular order:

The Sting, The Godfather, In Bruges, Fargo, Inglourious Basterds, The Avengers:  Infinity War, Caddyshack, Independence Day, Shawshank Redemption, The Empire Stirkes Back

I love "Fargo," but "No Country for Old Men" is my favorite Coen Bros film.  Both are in my Top 10.

It looks like you and I have similar tastes ... which either figures because we're both Connecticutians or should scare the hell out of you.

I'm in the "Caddyshack is overrated" camp, so that wouldn't be within light years of my top 10, and I probably wouldn't rank Independence Day or the Marvel movie in my top 25, but your others would either be in there or darn close. I'd have to find room for Jaws, Gladiator, The Graduate, Raging Bull, Schindler's List, maybe The Jerk, maybe Hoop Dreams.

I especially like your inclusion of In Bruges and Inglourious Basterds, two great flicks that many wouldn't think of. Just thinking about In Bruges makes me crack up!

+++

And to answer Muggsy's original question about Fargo after this finally found a home on the proper board ... of course!

There are few movies that made me laugh more than Fargo, which also was so damn smart and filled with incredible performances. It made stars out of McDormand, Macy and Buscemi, and there were so many outstanding supporting performances, too.

No chance for my top 5.

Think the show is closer to my top 5 shows than movie to my top 5 movie.

Both are awesome though.

Wow, we got different tastes. Godfather & Fargo are the only ones that would even be in my top 100.

That's what makes this fun, though.

I love the "we're not a bank Jerry" scene.  Wade should have gotten greater recognition and more screen time.

I believe a lot of the shots on the interstate were along 494 near Richfield and Bloomington.  Probably 90% of that now torn down and new businesses put in.  Fun to see as I lived in Richfield from 1987 to 1994.

Ted Knight cracks me up in Caddyshack (I also caddied as a high schooler and on weekends while in college so a lot of it rang true), and I wanted to include a straight up comedy.  It was between that and Young Frankenstein.  I really enjoyed the Marvel movies and wanted to pick one, and Independence Day is just a really fun movie start to finish.

I also like to love all of your other suggestions, so we do indeed have similar tastes!

Oooh ... Young Frankenstein ... great call. I was going off the top of my head and forget that one -- it and The Jerk are my two favorite comedies ever. YF is by far the "better" movie but I laugh a lot every time I watch just about any clip from The Jerk. It was Steve Martin at his dopiest funny, before he became a renaissance man. My wife's favorite comedy is Planes, Trains & Automobiles, which is damn funny too -- Martin is a great straight man to a hilarious John Candy.

One also could argue that In Bruges, The Graduate and Inglourious Basterds are comedies, I suppose. So many of Tarantino's movies just crack me up.

I have a friend who went in 2019 as part of a trip to Germany and elsewhere in Belgium, and he said it was great. It's on our list. I'll be interested in hearing your report.

I think I need to watch In Bruges again soon!

Yes.  Hop over to Leuven and stay a few nights in Antwerp.  I prefer Antwerp to Brussels in general.

Thx for the Keys tips.  I'm there right now.

Yeah, we are just using Brussels as a base for a series of visits.  Bruges, Ghent, a side trip to the Netherlands. 
Trains are easier than moving around multiple times.
Enjoy the keys!

Ok that makes more sense.  Its a good hub for that.

I really prefer anywhere in Belgium.  Antwerp is such a great cultural center with so much history.  Ive been there so many times there for work it took going with my wife last month to re-appreciate it as a city.  Bruges, Ghent, Leuven, and Liege is actually quite cool too.

Brussels just feels kind of one note.  I know the palace and such is there, and the EU is there so its quite multicultural, but it really is otherwise unremarkable IMO.

I couldn't agree more, you're spot-on.  I would hit Maastricht if you can pbiflyer.  I think it's about an hour and a half from Brussels.

Thanks for all the advice. We had a nice AirBnB in Ghent, but they closed due to Covid, so Brussels was really plan B.

Had Leuven and Liege on the plan. Will look at Maastricht to add. We have a free boy’s day while the wife and daughter have a day planned.

Thanks!

   Just spent 3 days in Maastricht and wholeheartedly agree .  Recommend the Botticelli for a small hotel just off the main square . great walking town.lots of cafes and charm.   In Amsterdam often and stay away from crowded Centrum. Day visits to Leyden, the Hague or Haarlem have the same canals, ancient architecture and quaint shops without the hordes of people.

Okay, it’s on the list. Now I am reconsidering Brussels as the base. Maybe Antwerp?

Back on topic. If you like Fargo, A Simple Plan seems to be in a similar vane.

My favorites include

I would 2nd Antwerp.  Leuven is also a lot of fun.  Both are just as close to Bruges  and closer to the Netherlands.  Antwerp is a much more enjoyable city than Brussels imo.

That's a real good list, Lenny, including your "others" and comedies.

When I was growing up, one of the NY stations used to televise Marx Brothers movies pretty regularly on Saturday nights. My brother and I would watch 'em and then drive our parents nuts on Sunday quoting them. "Two more hard-boiled eggs!" "If I hold you any closer, I'll be in back of you." "Get your Tootsie Frootsie ice cream!"

I never saw Whiplash and I don't really remember it. I just now googled it and it looks pretty good. I think I'll check it out!

Commonalities provide the basis for all relationships. Too often politics (biases we have little control over) or sheer coincidence (the school we went to, the town we’re from) provide that basis. In my experience what we consume and what moves us in the arts is a better, more accurate measure of who we are. So there is hope for us, indeed!

Amadeus is my #1
I’ll watch Patton anytime it’s played.

I’m a sucker for Sound of Music.

Agree with 82 on The Sting.

Comedy:  The Bird Cage.

Amadeus is my favorite as well.

Speaking of Bird Cage, have you seen the French original, La Cage au Folles?  I saw it at the Varsity Theater.
Have some patience, FFS.

Amadeus was so much fun.
“A lot of the stuff that we believe in and that I’ve always believed in — it takes time. It’s not a quick fix. It’s not an instant-gratification thing. It’s a drip-by-drip process.”
