Finally, about 16 years after it first came out, we watched The Big Lebowski. Apparently we're either too old for it or else you have to watch it completely stoned. Hadn't even dipped into my wine at that point. OTOH, I'll never look at bowling the same again.

I did it! Fifty years after I was scared out of my wits by the witch and monkeys at 5 years old, I finally watched "Wizard of Oz" from start to finish!

Okay, have you all stopped laughing? It was very traumatic and I don't know why I just kept "avoiding" it. Finally I felt it was time to put that fear aside and see it for what it was - a masterpiece of a movie!

@LPBeier----- I can totally understand! When I watched King Kong (NOT the recent ones!) I had the pants scared off of me!!!!! Only when I grew up (which is in a process of reversing at this point!) could I watch and enjoy it, although it wasn't a masterpiece, like Oz.

You've given me an idea----- put The Wizard of Oz in my Netflix queue.

Of course what would be WAY more fun would be to have Neil Tyson sitting in the extra chair spotting those errors for us. Love the man!
I love watching movies that way...makes it fun.

There were so many technical inaccuracies in Gravity that bugged the heck out of me but I figured many of them had to be done in that manner to make the movie more entertaining.

That means we should be able to watch it in full critique mode...Making fun of serious movies can create more laughs than a great comedy!

Himself mentioned a classic, Our Man Flint, a few weeks back. We got the disc from the library and watched it tonight. A little Bond, a little Austin Powers, and a lot of laughs. Still dozed off for a couple short naps even though we were liking it better than last night's movie - just can't stay awake with a cat on my lap!

Watched Elysium a couple of nights ago. I really enjoyed it. One could heavily deconstruct it for its political commentary, which I found interesting.

Watching, Kung Fu Hustle, cracking me up. I don't think I'm healed enough for good comedy, yet.
