It’s almost time to cringe with laughter

Once again Andy, the Fandango Groover, and Mrs. Movie Mobster herself, Heather, have invited me to participate in the next Groovers and Mobsters blog event. The themed event — this month on (yippee!) dark comedies — goes live on Saturday, June 12. So get out your Dayplanner (er, whatever technological phone device you own that may or may not have the capacity to cut your meat for you) and make a reminder to visit and see what movies me, Heather and obliging fellow bloggers will be reviewing.

Since I’m terrible at keeping secrets, I’ll give you ONE HINT. Does anyone remember what killed the dinosaurs? I heard a rumor it was chaos.

  1. Looking forward to it! It sort of ties up with the concurrent comedy tournament we are running, that’s awesome!

  2. I hope it’s Heathers!

  3. Calender marked, good ladyness. Is it wishful thinking to hope for Wristcutters?

  4. …it’s not Night at the Musuem is it! 😉

  5. Dark comedies, we’ve already agreed on Happiness as being one of the best ever!!!

    After Hours?
    Burn After Reading?
    In Bruges?
    Dog Day Afternoon?
    Thank You For Smoking?
    Lock Stock?
    Bad Santa?
    Can’t forget Fargo!!

    But you’re doing Heathers! 😛

    • @ Castor — Yeah, it’s weird how that happened! Probably you hatched your idea first, but who knows? Of course, dark comedies make you laugh, but underneath they make your soul weep a little.

      @ Simon/Ripley — Maybe, maybe not. You’ll have to wait and see…

      @ Dan — Good guess, but no cigar. I haven’t heard of “Night at the Musuem” — is that a foreign film? 🙂

      @ PRP — You know I couldn’t leave “Happiness” out in the cold! I’m taking note of your suggestions to make sure we have them in our “suggested viewing” list!

    • Yes, for suggesting Burn After Reading. I love that movie so much I’d eat a pepper for it.

  6. Sounds fun. I can’t wait.

  7. Oh good. I luv dark comedies.

    • Thanks for visiting, Addicted to Films, and I’ve added you to my blogroll now! 🙂

  8. So this is a salute to the work of the Coen brothers, then? Oh, and Terry Gilliam? And, oh God there are so many to talk about. There’s nothing I love more than laughing into the abyss.

    • Can I steal the phrase “laughing into the abyss” for the post on Saturday? It’s positively Shakespearean in its eloquence.

  9. M. I’m glad I’m not the only one who thought you and Heather’s right away. I’m sure people would make that assumption about me and American Psycho though. I guess they’ll just have to wait and see.

  10. Perfect timing. Don’t know why but lately I’ve been craving to watch dark comedies–good, bad, doesn’t matter. Something in me just doesn’t feel quite… right.
