(Sorry for being late. Screwed up my autopost)
Okey Dokey. Narrow theme, then a broad theme. I have good news though. In the spirit of the season, I'm going to name the theme for the next TWO MCW's. Everyone is going to be really busy with all the stuff that goes on this time of year so here's your assignments. The theme for 12/15 is "most overrated movie". This is a Boxer suggestion and it's a great one. The theme for 12/22 is (drum roll please) favorite Christmas Movie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. /standing ovation from the blogosphere ensues.
Here's how it works. Each week I pick a theme, you go out into the world wide interweb and find an appropriate clip, hopefully less than three minutes long, come over here and post that you are up and we all come and see what it is you've done. Boxer began this and it's up to us to finish it. Kind of like how the young kids took the herd the rest of the way to town after John Wayne died in The Cowboys. God did I hate Bruce Dern after that. I don't know if I watched a movie with him in it for like 10 years.
This week's theme was a suggestion from Five Wood. With the death of Leslie Nielson, he thought a cop movie theme would be good. I didn't have anything better so I rolled with it.
Lots and lots of good cop movies to choose from as there always are when I don't make it at least a little bit narrow. Oh well. I went with one of my all time favorites Super Troopers. This movie would fit last week's theme for everyone at the LBOH who didn't like it the first time. It's funny and I thought most of those guys had a sophisticated sense of humor like me but truth is they are more into fart jokes and find movies like American Pie 4 funny.
Not enough good clips but the trailer will suffice.
And in tribute to Leslie Nielson
