CitizenjaQ: I watched They Live because I thought it was the one with the curly-haired guy pointing. But apparently that's Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Need to see Scanners at some point too.


That "curly-haired guy" is Donald Sutherland, pretty well-known actor. Perhaps you've heard of his son Keifer. Say..what country are you from anyway?

The FARK movie list has only two requirements:

Beer
Naked Women

They don't actually have to be on the screen you are watching, they can be in the room with you.
 
2011-10-17 07:42:29 PM  
I got the Princess Bride on DVD largely because of Fark, though other people had also raved about it. I had never seen it, and it does not seem to have been released where I live, so I had to get it back in the UK.

Also, Anal Sluts IV. Fark made a lot more sense after that.

Sticky Hands: With the current economy looking all blown to hell, some Farkers might also enjoy: The Way of the Gun.

I could watch the opening scene over and over and over again.


I love that scene. It's the only part of the movie I forced my wife to watch!

Because of Fark, I have seen:

Big Lebowski
Clerks (which lead to me seeing Clerks 2 and Mallrats)
Caddyshack
Airplane!
Rewatched Blazing Saddles for the first time in more than a decade
Fark got me back into MST3K for the first time since it was on the air, and directly got me to watch the Manos and Soultaker episodes
Have SOAP sitting around to watch at some point

Will most likely end up watching because of Fark:

Spinal Tap

Seems like a lot of the movies that are required watching for Fark are already mentioned. (any nerdy kind of movie seems to cover it.)
One day I will teach a CPR class based off of the Princess Bride Miracle Max scene. (He's only MOSTLY dead. and we only do CPR on people who are mostly dead.
But one movie I watched based off a Fark recommendation was The Grave of the Fireflies. Thread a real long time ago (4 years or so) about the saddest animated movie ever. Someone linked a trailer on Youtube and I bawled just watching the damn trailer. I put it on the netflix que and watched it with my lady, and bawled and bawled and bawled. Loved it. Want it if it ever comes out on blue ray.
