49. The Pilgrim (1923)
50. WR: Mysteries of the Organism (1971)

I have no idea what I just watched... but I kinda liked it. Some weird dude was obsessed with orgasms, which obviously means that communism is impossible without free love, so let's explore a young woman's new relationship. I think my favorite part was the conversation between the young woman and her boyfriend that took place while another naked woman crawled around the room - good symbolism and a nice challenge to the viewer.

51. Our Hospitality (1923) <--- Bronze on the Film Comedy list :banana: :banana: :banana:

Thank god for all the shorts on that list, because that's the only way I managed to get 37 checks on a single list into a month-long challenge. Anyway, I loved this - I thought it was a great story, and the physical comedy was top-notch. I've been watching a lot of Chaplin this month, and for me, Keaton blows Chaplin out of the water on silent comedies. The waterfall scene at the end was brilliant.

52-54. Shorts (190m total):
Between Calais and Dover (1897, 2m)
The Bewitched Inn (1897, 2m)
Porklips Now (1980, 16m)
The Cure (1917, 24m)
Dárek (1946, 15m)
My Wife's Relations (1922, 24m)
The Pawnshop (1916, 25m)
One A.M. (1916, 26m)
A Woman (1915, 26m)
Saturday Afternoon (1926, 30m)

I don't see myself watching any more shorts, so here's my last shorts dump. The Pawnshop was my favorite of the lot - it felt fresher and more fun than several of the other Chaplins I watched.

Depending on my motivation, I might have more to report, but I had to post now because I'm super excited to get that bronze.

e) Just a Minute (James Parrott, 1924)
29. Silk Stockings (Rouben Mamoulian, 1957)

The songs aren't that memorable - though none of them are bad - and the dances while good aren't spectacular, but Cyd Charisse in her best performance lifts this to with hailing distance at least of it's non-musical original (Ninotchka, with Garbo, 1939). I wish they'd made the "Stereophonic Sound" a little more inventive, and Astaire's character just isn't much here, but the leading lady and the dancing overall are enough to carry it into a pretty solid experience.

a) Powder and Smoke (James Parrott)
b) Hard Knocks (James Parrott)
c) Don't Forget (James Parrott)
d) The Fraidy Cat (James Parrott)
e) Publicity Pays (Leo McCarey)
f) Young Oldfield (Leo McCarey)
g) Stolen Goods (Leo McCarey)

The highlight here in this group of more 1924 "Jimmy Jump" one-reelers in The Fraidy Cat, where our hero is a bullied sissy who learns to fight back; a fair amount of visual inventiveness here and one pretty good effect as a dummy turns into a live man. Publicity Pays offers Charley a chance to show some climbing skills in going after a monkey outside a hotel room; the rest of these are pretty fair-to-middlin' I reckon.

19. Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961) Another film designated comedy but not funny at all. 6/10

Total: 19 Points


1. Auntie Mame (1958) A showcase for Rosalind Russell but it includes a superb supporting cast and a wonderful script. 9/10
2. The Gorilla (1939) I'll watch anything with Bela Lugosi, and the Ritz Brothers are funny. 8/10
3. Some Like it Hot (1959) Wonderful. I love Curtis’ feminine voice. 9/10.
4. The World According to Garp (1982) Call me crazy, I don’t consider this film a comedy. It’s very good, just not funny. 8/10
5. They All Laughed (1981) Mildly, very mildly, entertaining. Ben Gazarra is not good looking enough or charismatic enough to captivate all these women. Bland script. 5/10
6. Girls Trip (2017) It’s not funny, it’s awful. 2/10
7. The Disaster Artist (2018) A well made film but I don’t want to laugh at Tommy Wiseau.
8. It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World (1963) Lots of insult comedy. Dozens and dozens of comedic actors and actresses. Mickey Rooneys’ character’s name is Ding Bell. I love, love, love, love it!
10/10.
9. Sex and the City (2008) Lovely. 8/10
10. Sex and the City 2 (2010) Lovely. 8/10
11. Cactus Flower (1969) A riot—“Let’s have some of that crazy Idaho champagne!” 9/10
12. Seven Chances (1925) Made me a Buster Keaton fan. I need a turtle for my tie. 9/10
13. The General (1926) Fabulous, amazing! 9/10
14. Black Books TV Series (2000) Mean humor can be fun. 8/10
15. Slapshot (1977) Not surprised Paul Newman made a good film—and it’s got Strother Martin. 8/10
16. Baby Mama (2008) Perfectly pleasing. 8/10
17. Manhattan Murder Mystery (1993) Absolutely hilarious—a terrific Woody Allen film. 10/10
18. Dinner at Eight (1933) There is not one funny moment in this film. I don’t know why it is designated as a comedy on imdb. A straightforward drama from George Cukor. 6/10

I got one more in. Fred Astaire and Cyd Charisse star in a play that's taken off-kilter by the documentary. I think this was fine - but there was too much of Fred Astaire singing and not enough of him dancing. That said, when he was dancing, it was magical. The scene where he and Cyd were dancing when she was in the white dress was among the best dancing I've seen - every single participant in a dance competition should watch that dance to learn how to partner and how to be effortlessly cool. Fred was clearly no longer in his prime, but damn is he smooth...

Thanks for hosting, albajos! :worship:

Previously watched...Show
1. Cottage Country (2013) 3/10
2. Brewster's Millions (Hill, 1985) 4/10
3. Color Me Blood Red / Model Massacre (Lewis, 1965) 3/10
4. Sons of the Desert / Fraternally Yours (Seiter, 1933) 7/10
5. King of the Zombies (Yarbrough, 1941) 3/10
6. The Gingerdead Man (Band, 2005) 2/10
7. A Simple Favor (Feig, 2018)
Interesting mix of mystery, thriller, film noir and comedy. The first 20 or 25 minutes were hilarious and deliciously dark, largely thanks to the double act between Kendrick and Lively. However, the film then transforms into a Gone Girl rip-off and retreats to a safer and more familiar mystery. Decent overall, but disappointing as it could have been so much better if it had maintained the tone of the opening act.
5/10
Image

8. The Nutty Professor (Lewis, 1963)
So this is the character Professor Frink in the Simpsons is based on. I like the colourful production design a lot, but the script seems a lot poorer. I liked the film most when it was doing goofy slapstick at the beginning. When it moves into character-based comedy I don't think Professor Kelp and Buddy Love have enough funny business to do.
4/10

Image

BRONZE medal achieved on list AFI's 100 years...100 laughs

9. Beyond the Valley of the Dolls (Meyer, 1970)
Great songs, energetic and beautiful cinematography and editing, and a hilarious tongue-in-cheek script that is a sort of satire of soap-opera melodrama that eventually tilts into violent madness. It really is Russ Meyer's auteurist masterpiece; a distillation of mad 60s psychedelia and kitsch.
8/10

Image

10. The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (Ritchie, 2015)
Not sure about the comedy tag. It has lightly comic scenes, but no more than most Roger Moore films, which are very close in tone to this and aren't tagged as comedy. Ritchie's direction has a colourful 60s visual style but is low on action, tension and general verve. Despite this, Vikander, Hammer and Cavill make a good team.
high 4/10

Image

11. Shock Treatment (Sharman, 1981)
I thought this might have been rushed out to cash in on Rocky Horror Picture Show, but looking up the troubled production history it seems to have been turned into gibberish through complete rewrites of the libretto while trying to preserve the songs. The plot ends up thin and vague. Rocky Horror was a parody of sci-fi horror, specifically Frankenstein. This is a parody of... Daytime TV? Consumerism? Mental health treatment? It's all stream-of-consciousness nonsense to string the songs on. Pity, because there are some good tunes.

My last post of the challenge!! It's been fun and thanks to albajos for hosting!!

135. Kermit's Swamp Years (2002)
:lol: :lol: /10
For a muppet movie, it really just wasn't all that funny or clever. It definitely seemed to be targeted to a younger demographic than the average muppet movie which I typically really enjoy.

136. Funny Girl (1968)
:lol: :lol: /10
Something tells me Fanny Brice wasn't quite as obnoxious as Streisand seems to play her.

137. The Devil Is a Woman (1935)
:lol: :lol: :lol: /10
The title is very appropriate. Dietrich toys with a poor guy's affection to his frustration. Not that funny but still pretty solid movie.

138. Enchanted (2007)
:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: /10
I actually enjoyed this one more than expected and thought it was quite funny sending up the typical Disney princess tropes. Although it really starts to go downhill in the last 30 minutes when it starts to become that which it initially set out to mock.

139. Gregory's Girl (1980)
:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: /10
This was a sweet movie with a playful sense of humor. I liked it quite a bit.

I watched a few that I didn't take the time to mention here...

01. Die Bergkatze by Ernst Lubitsch (1921) 7,5/10

Quite funny and inventive.

02. Zelig, by Woody Allen (1983) 7/10

A good film, but I thought it relies too heavily on its main concept...

03. Le monde est à toi, by Romain Gavras (2018) 7/10

How strange it was to see Isabelle Adjani join this scam movie... Still, it was rather funny...

I'm laughed out! :lol: Actually, I did feel that way around the middle of this challenge - or at least tired of Knock About and Slapstick - but these last days saw a return to chuckling and even belly laughing out loud. Thanks for hosting, albajos! :cheers:

I gave everyone 72 to post the last results, but as nobody has posted anything here for 42 hours I'll try to post the finishing stats today.
But if someone has more to add you still have 18 hours.

So, is this now officially done? I am eager to see how high my average rank goes up when max releases the updated leaderboard. B)

Unless someone has seen some TV-episodes I haven't caught, the numbers in the OP are correct.

I have extreme hiccups sometimes which result in me just having to forget about working at that time, so I still have some stats to dwell into, but 24-36 hours should be enough to finish this off. At least in LGBT-challenge I keep everything up to date for everyone to see, so that one will get it's results right away.
