There's a reason excess rhymes (somewhat) with success.

Features:

5. Joe Kidd (1972, John Sturges)
Another western from my Clint boxset, and it should come as no surprise that I was entertained. It's written by Leonard, features a cool Lalo Schifrin score, and Duvall as a ruthless villain with a dubious moustache. Short, nothing too special, but fun. 7
I'm looking forward even more to the ones I still have left though, especially High Plains Drifter and The Outlaw Josey Wales (not a part of boxset but promised myself I'd finish the former first).
6. The Great McGinty (1940, Preston Sturges)
Coincidentally, another Sturges film A bit disappointing given the guy's reputation but since I bought the boxset there is a lot of good stuff still waiting for me.
A tramp becomes a mayor, then a governor, and then working as a barman in a dubious foreign country. Solid political satire with some nice writing, but kinda let down by the predictability of the romantic side of the film and unnecessary moralising. Also a 7

Shorts:

1. Shakhmatnaya goryachka [Chess Fever] (1925, Pudovkin/Shpikovsky) {18 mins} youtube part 1 part 2 translations
I was a chess fanatic myself two years ago, so this short, which I found about thanks to Rosenbaum's essential films, intrigued me. The basic story is that there is an international chess tournament in Moscow (which is true and real footage is included) and every man on the street is hooked on chess. This is the reason why a pair's marriage is crumbling apart, until the wife meets the world chess champion (played by Casablanca himself) who saves their relationship. The wife's ugliness aside, pretty much a perfect short, and my first 10 of the year

If you want to get the worst of the box set out of the way first, watch The Great Moment next. The rest are all excellent.

I don't really know what's on the box set, but "the Great McGinty" would be my 4th favourite out of the 5 Sturges films I've seen. "Unfaithfully Yours", "Sullivan's Travels", and "The Palm Beach Story" in particular are all excellent.

Yeah, that one was getting the least praise in my experience, but I'm watching them in chronological order, and want to watch a (supposedly) good film of his next. What do you think of his writing work and the films not on the boxset (Miracle of Morgan's Creek and Unfaithfully Yours)?
Also, have you seen Chess Fever? It's on video google without subs but I could translate all the intertitles in about 5 mins...

Yeah, but then he'd have to wait until September. Instead, he should have started watching it at 9:09 in the morning

But four nines is of far greater significance than three, because it is an even more impressive coincidence.

16.  Dylan Moran - What It Is

Moran reminds me of Dave Allen at times. There's something about their approach to life where you can see Allen's influence flowing through Moran, even if Moran's more shambolic approach is at odds with Allen's still and methodical presence. I think what they both have in common is that they both can see the absurdity of life and present that absurdity to you and make you recognise truths about the modern world than a Peter Kay style 'Why did your mum buy crap pop!?' observational stand-up ever could. I think Moran is one of the best stand-ups currently working, probably in large part because he never feels as if he's doing it as a stepping stone to another series. For all of the seemingly surreal aspects of Moran's take on life, and what often comes across as incredible misanthropy, there's a great romantic imagination at work here. It's an absolutely brilliant performance and, possibly rather scarily, I found myself agreeing with most of his rants.

9/10

Dylan Moran is among the great pantheon of Gods, for sure, sitting there with Bill Bailey and Nick Cave and Dot Cotton. His description of the German language is one of the most hilarious things I've ever heard.

Quick question. Do stand up dvds / broadcasts / live gigs get included in this thread?
Or elsewhere?
I didn't include any that I saw in any of the list threads for the last two years', and I've seen 4 so far this year.
If they can be included in this thread, I'll add them as a seperate list (like I'll be doing again with Shorts and Documentaries).

I've included the two I've watched so far because I honestly don't see where else they can go. Also, lots of concert films get accepted in greatest films lists so I don't see why they can't go in films of the year lists.

At least I'm not a green-eyed loco man.



Since when have you been a Fall fan?


Since I discovered Pavement's version of The Classical, which I love, was but a cover of the far better Fall version. I only have one album, though - 50,000 Fall Fans Can't Be Wrong - and I haven't really given it a listen yet.

Nice to know you thought you could trip me up with the Fall references, though.

Dylan Moran is among the great pantheon of Gods, for sure, sitting there with Bill Bailey and Nick Cave and Dot Cotton. His description of the German language is one of the most hilarious things I've ever heard.


Dot Cotton.  Did he go to NZ when he toured?


He did, but I missed him, sadly - I was already paying off a debating tournament and my Fly My Pretties ticket at the time. A number of my friends went to see him, though, and actually met him backstage after, lucky bastards.

Who do you reckon would win in a fist-fight between Mark E Smithy and Robert Smithy?


Uncle Bob's a big chap, but I reckon Mes would fight dirty. Plus he's got good teeth for biting.

Hey, PA, you're spoiling all the paintwork.


Shut it, you. This is bloody Newark.



You spoilt Victorian child.

Why didn't you do what every cool person does and get This Nation's Saving Grace first?

And also, damn.

Quick question. Do stand up dvds / broadcasts / live gigs get included in this thread?
Or elsewhere?


I've included the two I've watched so far because I honestly don't see where else they can go. Also, lots of concert films get accepted in greatest films lists so I don't see why they can't go in films of the year lists.

Shite. I just noticed your post on Dylan Moran after I posted my query - was too busy catching up on the last 24 hours' posts.
What It Is is one of the 4 I've seen this year - I also saw him live on the same tour last year, and he was fantastic.

Right then, off to make my new sub-list. Ta!
