I saw Pulp Fiction in the theater with my dad.

I don't think either of us have ever laughed so hard at a guy getting shot in the face.

It was the one between the two scenes of expositional dialogue about mundane occurrences or facts.

I didn't see Burn After Reading, but wasn't it constantly advertized as a comedy? Was it actually a serious movie?

the Coen Brothers' underrated "Burn After Reading"

It wasn't underrated, it just sucked. Also, it was not "otherwise serious".

Pulp Fiction was a great movie, but not "otherwise serious".

Nor was Deep Blue Sea. They had one entire character for comic relief off on his own for most of the movie.

Nor was RoboCop. There was plenty of satire.

Nor was Raiders of the Lost Ark. Too many examples to list.

Who is the goddamn idiot who named this list with all of these not-otherwise-serious movies on it?!

So, yeah...Brian Enk.

By the way, just saying, "No, it isn't," is not actually making an argument. An argument is a connected series of statements intended to establish a proposition.

Dark comedy I think. Not worth watching, really.

Oh, I'm sorry. Here, let me write a goddamn thesis paper about every single one.

I'll make them the same length as the author's arguments that each movie was otherwise serious.

Done.

"SERIOUS" ????



Every one of the films listed was silly,campy and pretty much NOT serious.


How is a film with the word "PULP" in the title serious?
 
2011-12-06 08:07:55 AM
"Otherwise serious"?

The divorce trial scene in "Intolerable Cruelty" had me laughing so hard I couldn't breathe. That movie is not "otherwise serious" at all.

vygramul: I didn't see Burn After Reading, but wasn't it constantly advertized as a comedy? Was it actually a serious movie?


It was a very dark comedy with very dry humor; methinks you'd have to be in the mood for nuance and inference to enjoy it.

High points include: some very good comedic characters for the actors (Clooney's a sleazeball, Pitt's a doofus, Malkovich is a pompous ass), the most tension-filled spy soundtrack ever composed, several unexpected occurences, and a hilarious coda scene with David Rasche and JK Simmons trying to figure out just what the hell happened in the movie.

Personally, I like it.

Silent Night, Deadly Night II was a serious film?

I nominate the elevator ride from "Drive", with Carey Mulligan.

Meh, I would have gone with "Can you fly bobbie?"

The funniest FTFA was "... otherwise serious movies." Does IFC get the concept of humor that does not involve making fun of President Bush?
 
2011-12-06 08:56:56 AM
IIRC, the Indiana Jones scene was supposed to be a long drawn out fight but Harrison Ford was sick for weeks and this is what they came up with.

Infinitely better
 
2011-12-06 08:59:24 AM
It was just on the other day, so this is why I recall it, but another Clooney addition was the cow in "Three Kings"
Spike Jonze was great in that. Hell, everybody was great in that.

Pulp Fiction was a serious movie? Maybe Jules' little "awaking" at the end but it was otherwise pretty much a comedy. I mean I wouldn't put it in the comedy section of a video store (what's that?) but I wouldn't call it serious either.

The funniest part of that scene was Travolta's reaction, "Man, I shot Marvin in the face" like, "Man, I stepped in gum".
 
2011-12-06 09:13:30 AM
...and maybe it's because I was just a kid when I saw it but Toxic Waste Guy in Robocop is to this day the most farked up make-up job ever, IMO.

Jules: [Jules shoots the "Flock of Seagulls" kid on the couch] I'm sorry, did I break your concentration? I didn't mean to do that. Please, continue, you were saying something about best intentions. What's the matter? Oh, you were finished! Well, allow me to retort. What does Marsellus Wallace look like?
 
2011-12-06 09:26:28 AM
How the fark can anyone watch Burn after reading and think it's not a comedy? Seriously WTF?

The Deep Blue Sea scene is one of my favorite death scenes in any movie. The Robocop one is just great because he explodes like a farkin water balloon
