Wanted to see if there was any interest in running another forum poll now that the horror/sci-fi ones are finishing up? There might be some nice crossover with 'barb's Romance poll so it could be a good time to run it.

Send lists to
empirecomedylist@hotmail.co.uk

Deadline - end of April.

Lists of 100/50/25

Shorts and features accepted.

Would a list consisting entirely of Laurel and Hardy, Tom and Jerry, Pixar, Wallace and Gromit and Hugh Grant films be acceptable?

I remember Jayb saying something similar. 

I miss Jayb.

I'm going to open this, if lists come in then great, if not it'll at least motivate me to do a new top 100 comedies. I'll set up an email later.

Lists of 100 or 50, shorts or features are fine.

I think there is only one comedy in my Top 30, maybe.

None that I know well enough to vote for them. Not really stuff I've watched since I was a kid. I'll gladly vote for Hot Rod though.

I'd take a list as small as 25 if that's any help.

We should probably give kargon the option, since s/he did start a poll thread here.

I don't think that thread was a serious attempt at a forum wide poll though was it?

I'd happily make a list.

Honestly, I have no idea. I didn't see the thread before Homes linked to it, but it looks like a personal thread rather than a poll one, despite the title. I don't want to step on anyone's toes though.

Disney/Pixar films, I'd class a lot of them as comedy. And Gump

Gump is a drama. It won the best Drama Golden Globe. It is a drama. It would not be eligible for a comedy poll if I should run one.

Talking of bad films that make you laugh, can I have Plan 9?

I don't even know if the list can be done yet.  If it's a problem then I don't mind if it's locked, but it's down to the wisdom of the rockers.

Kargon hasn't done anything with that thread in four months - it's pretty clearly a personal list. Go right ahead.

In other news, I've come into possession of a video of rawlinson trying to pick up women. This is going straight to the top of my list for this poll.

But regards the list,  I'll set up an email later tonight and put in a date for lists, etc. As far as eligibility, this is such a tricky area that I'm going to go with a similar approach as the horror  - if it makes you laugh then it's a comedy. So Plan 9, Troll 2, The Room, etc are all fine.

I laughed at Gimli's line about nervous systems. Can I have LOTR?

No. 

Although Evil Dead 2 and 3 are both fine.
