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

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?!

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

"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.

The funniest FTFA was "... otherwise serious movies." Does IFC get the concept of humor that does not involve making fun of President Bush?

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.
 
2011-12-06 09:09:37 AM
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.

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 pretty understated comedy. You laugh at the language of the characters more than any gags or jokes.

The stuff with the CIA higher-ups is gold, as is the thing that Clooney is building in his basement.

I think the ads made it look more silly than it was by showing Brad Pitt's character more prominantly than he actually was in the movie.
 
2011-12-06 09:56:17 AM
I think... seeing that none of these movies are serious movies, include the lady being blown up in RED. That one was just way out of place and to funny. Just loved it!
 
2011-12-06 10:04:13 AM
I cannot find it the footage on youtube, but I think that Mr. Aaron (the head warden)'s death scene from Alien 3 should be on there.

You guys know the one:
(Aaron barks orders all around, trying to get everyone to deal with the situation.)
(The Alien drops down from the ceiling, grabs Aaron, and drags him back up into the ductwork.)
(Dead, solid silence for a moment, broken by one of the prisoners suddenly just shouting "FARK!!!")

Also, very much agreed that TFA has little concept of an "otherwise serious movie."
"Burn After Reading" involves a scene where a husband, after discovering his wife's infidelity, starts crying while beating on a dildo with a sledgehammer. Along with pretty much everything else in the movie being patently ridiculous.

I liked it too and imagined Simmons as President Ackerman when he was on scene. The coda was funny. Pitt dying was amusing based on how sudden and pointless it was. Pitt plays the role that I would expect his real life to be if he wasn't an actor.

Burn After Reading is a horribly bad movie. It builds and builds then suddenly stops. Then we get the police having a conversation telling us what happened in the third act, which we never got to see.

As for funny death scenes no one's mentioned Paul Rueben's scene from the Buffy movie? For shame.

I don't think I would classify a single one of those movies as "serious". I was expecting more along the lines of death scenes that were supposed to be serious but ended up being really funny, like Padme in Revenge of the Sith.

It still makes me giggle thinking about it. Not sure if I could describe that movie as serious.

Paris Hilton's death scene in House of Wax was somewhat satisfying.

some gemini: LiQuid!: Take your pick from the Sean Bean death reel. (new window)

This is brilliant. Has he been in a movie where he doesn't die?


Bravo Two Zero.

He does have his teeth pulled out, tortured, and has to literally eat shiat.

Does he die in National Treasure? I don't think anyone dies in that, except for more of Nick Cage's hair

Yeah, but I don't think that was truly alive, at least in any sense that we understand the word, to begin with.

R5D4: yogaFLAME: No cat from Boondock Saints?

Wasn't this scene pretty much just a rip-off of the Marvin scene in Pulp Fiction?


Well, yeah. The entire movie was a rip-off of various other films.

/Willem Dafoe was good though

I'm going to have to give it to Brad Pitt in Burn After Reading. I wouldn't have seen it coming in a million years.

Certainly not many. He only got arrested in National Treasure but if it was any movie that wasn't billed as a Disney family movie and he'd be dead.

Runner up is Michael Biehn. Technically he survived Aliens but unless you ignore Alien3 like I do, he was already doomed and died offscreen during the opening credits so he basically died in Aliens.

Since they've defined what "serious" is, how can they leave out Paul Reubens death scene in Buffy the Vampire Slayer?

croesius: yogaFLAME: No cat from Boondock Saints?

Couldn't list it, no one could remember its name.


Speaking of which: would have killed them to bother mentioning the actor who played Marvin in Pulp Fiction? I mean, it's not like he hasn't done any other stuff. Hermes Conrad, anyone?

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

Dark comedy I think. Not worth watching, really.


Disagree. It had some great performances.

Agree! An excellent dark comedy. Apparently not enough fart jokes for some people, though.

People tend to forget that the 'shoot the swordman' bit was originally done in the Andy Sidaris 1979 classic 'Seven'.

In Ronin, he exited the movie early, but his character lived. I was honestly shocked.

It's a sign you've done too many death scenes when the mere act of being cast is a spoiler. I'm looking at you, Ned Stark.

Actually, not enough funny jokes, period. But you're right. Dildo jokes are much classier than fart jokes.

I restrained a giggle during 'X-Men: First Class' when the NIghtcrawler-guy was teleporting around the CIA base and dropping agents to their deaths. The song 'It's Raining Men' was going through my head.

I actually met the dude that got melted in Robocop when I was a street vendor in Vancouver. He was pretty cool and laid back.

OMG... I died when I saw that scene. Had to back up the movie and re-watch that scene a few times. Hubby and I couldn't stop laughing. Had to put the movie on pause for about 15-20 minutes.
