    How did that work out for the Van Helsing movie? Actually, that might have been a much better movie if they'd had a better script, better effects, a better director, and a supporting cast that wasn't dead set on giving performances and accents due for a b-movie production.

    Women and I have an understanding. They tend to stay away from me, and I tend to understand that I'm repulsive to them. It's not my favorite understanding.

    That was a spectacularly bad movie. So bad it seemed like they were trying. Departed bad.

    Brendan whatshisface was OK in The Mummy, and that movie gave us Beni.

    Wow. And there's no shame in knowing Airplane! start-to-finish.

    I want to see Zero Hour! But it's not on Netflix at all.

    I knew of the similarities beforehand thanks to youtube/etc.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    This is why you fail. Airplane! is great. Total classic.

    While this is a bit shocking given that we are (I think) about the same age, I'm not going to excoriate you for it. Go buy it (renting is a waste of time) - the DVD is probably $15-20 online, but it's worth it. You will want it in your library.

    I honestly don't like most movies from that era. I have a few exceptions like Spaceballs and Blazing Saddles. But for the most part I think the rest of those movies are a big fat meh.

    OK, you're a Brooks guy, same as me. I saw Airplane! before I saw Blazing Saddles, and they are equally funny. The ZAZ guys had a short window in the late 70s/early 80s where they leapfrogged Brooks and hit the mark.

    That said, I actually agree on that third sentence, to a point.

    EDIT: Now that I think about it, my eventual kid is not going to find "Where da white women at?" funny, is he/she? Oy.

    Agreed. On all counts.

    I say that knowing that while Airplane! is superlative, 1980/1981 also gave us History of the World: Part I, which is worthy of discussion.

    Never was a fan of that one. But Police Squad! (tv) which led to Naked Gun, FTW. And Airplane II! was a rare sequel that was at least somewhat worthy of the original.

    Airplane II is hilarious...Shatner is awesome in it

    If you dont like the original Naked Gun your opinion on everything is completely invalid. That is the little known 11th Commandment

    Of course I'm a fan of the Vikings. A sick and demented Masochist of a fan, but a fan none the less.
