You guys are naming some excellent movies, all of which I have seen and heard of.

I grew up singing the soundtrack to "The Last Unicorn" by the way...ignore the upcoming interlude if you don't know what I'm talking about....."Therreee youuuuuu seeeee herrrrrrrrr shhhhhhhhhheeeeee'sssss theeeeeeee lasttttttt Unicooooooorn!"

Welcome to the Dollhouse is also a great favorite of mine, even though it hits a little too close to the mark ( I was Dawn (wiener-dog) Wiener for my middle school tenure).

hee hee yeah Ferris is a classic movie, a little rough, but it should be cherrished forever!!! lol

omg i was flicking through the foxtel channels and found a movie called 'Killer Tomatos Strike Back'....lol i thought that was hillarious, and u should have seen the tomatos

oh and thismorning i watched a movie with a really good message to it, well it was clear cut, still held you in suspence without making it impossible to know whats going on and it was called 'Speak'.....it was good, i recomended it for girls mostly... not sure that it would appeal to guys so much.

'The Long Kiss Goodnight' is brilliant, it might be more famous than I think though. Hey I'd never heard of it until I'd seen it.

PS: The title sounds like a romantic comedy, but trust me, it's not.

Yeah Monty Python is pretty awesome. Also Stealing Harvard (someone mentioned that before). Oh I watched this movie called Labryinth or something but I asked people and no one else seems to have heard of it.

Also 'When Friendship Kills' also called 'A Secret Between Friends' which i think was a made for TV movie about eating disorders, i watched it ages ago and it's stuck with me - i would love to see it again

Oh yes and i seem to remember in the other thread there was some discussion about the FF film 'Advent Children' omg, i would LOVE to see that

I really liked Stealing Harvard after someone made me sit down & watch it. I'm always making the kids sit & watch older movies I think they'd like. They liked Willow (very surprised when I told them Willow was Flitwick!) & Labyrinth...their favorite part was the goblins singing...they thought it was pretty funny. They made me go out & buy Monty Python & the Holy Grail.

I've seen the Last Unicorn too.. how sad!! You should rent Watership Down if you like sad cartoon movies!

I thought of some more that noones heard of (that I ask)

**Harry and the Hendersons** (about a sasquatch named Harry)

** Josh and S.A.M. ** (2 kids, one thinks he's a robot/and Martha Plimpton is in it!)

**Labrynth** (great movie with Jim Hensons puppets/lots have heard of it tho)

Labrinth is a great film, starring Jennifer Connelly and David Bowie as the Goblin King. It has this hilarious exchange:

Jennifer Connelly walks up to a wall and sees a worm next to a small hole.

Worm: "'Ello."
JC: "Excuse me?"
Worm: "I said 'Ello."
JC: Oh.
Worm: "D'you wanna come in and have a cup o' tea?"
JC: "Um, no. I need to get past this wall."
Worm: "Go on, have a cup o' tea."
JC: "No thank you. Are you some sort of..... wizard?"
Worm: "Nope, just a worm."


Another great film is Bad Taste, a mega-low mudget horror film from australia, directed by Peter (LOTR) Jackson. It's amazingly bad, which makes it funny as anything.

Drop Dead Fred is great, too. Rik Mayall (Fred) should totally play Peeves the Poltergiest if they include him in the films.

Fat goblin in the back: Did she say it?

Speaking of Ferris Bueller, we had our student art show at my college this week, and my friend had to take pictures of people looking at the art show. so me and a couple of other people volunteered to be in the pics. it was sooooo funny, cause anyone who walked in would have thought they walked into the scene from Ferris Bueller where the 3 of them are in the museum looking at the art (if u dont know what i'm talking about, u should go watch the moive)

I love David Bowie's songs in Labrynth too.
"You remind me of the babe."
"What babe?"
"The Babe with the power."
"What power?"
"The power of voodoo."
"Who do?"
"You do."
"Do what?"
"Remind me of the babe."

HaHaHa - Circular insanity logic is fun!

Little Shop of Horrors is great as well. I love musicals that are subversive and mess with the genre. South Park, it aint exactly high art, but the musical numbers are hilarious.

The movie I like that few people seem to have heard of or seen is “They Live” has one of the best movie quotes in it too:

“I’ve come here to chew bubblegum and kick [explicit synonym for butt], and I’m all out of bubblegum.”

That suddenly reminded me of a movie I saw a long time ago called Blood Diner. I don't remember it being very good, but I did laugh a lot!

That's another movie I always seem to watch whenever I happen to catch it on TV. I think it's the awesome evil skeletal alien special effects!

Labyrinth is a great movie!

I thought of something else, an older black and white film with Cary Grant--it's called "Arsenic and Old Lace," and it's absolutely hilarious, I just about die laughing every time I watch it.

In the movie, Cary Grant's character has a brother who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt. He's always talking about "going to Panama" to dig the canal--which, by the way, is in their cellar. Sounds weird, I know, but it's actually really funny!
