Seems like the right thing to do.
Could you rephrase that in a way that makes the film sound enjoyable?
at the king arthur bit as instructed?
i MEGA WINCED
just YouTube a bunch of LL clips while punching yourself in the dick. It'll save you eight quid.
sit in your room watching The Mighty Boosh Live At Brixton on YouTube, eating Somerfield Simply Value cornflakes out of the bag, your face feeling like it's too heavy to stay attached to your head, all seven nights this week.
i'm going on wed!
I'm looking forward to it.
Is it so wrong of me to hate the Mighty Boosh Live at Brixton? A few funny moments but loads of filler - I was seriously bored. Mind you I'm not a big fan of the TV series.
i tend to like shit.
will it be as good as spaced?
Simon Pegg's funniness died a long time ago.
And if you say Shaun of the Dead, you are wrong.
I think its so hilarious how they're using CRICKET BATS to kill zombies.
Oh endless laughs. Its practically laugh after laugh.
HA! A WOMEN JOKE!
'Let's get a pint.' HAHAHHA!
HAHAHHA THEY're LISTENING TO QUEEN EVEN THOUGH A LOAD OF ZOMBIES ARE KILLING THEM.
HAHAHAHAH HE'S PLAYING ON THE PLAYSTATION EVEN THOUGH HE'S A ZOMBIE.
i'm joining you two on this.
i like Spaced though.
sean of the dead was marginally better, but still crap
i quite liked Big Train but didn't actually find it funny. i don't think i laughed during it but it was quite enjoyable to watch.
I thought Big Train was quite a good concept sketch show, and it was nice to see a sketch show that relied on the individual sketches rather than on characters like The Fast Show and Harry Enfield and Chums before it. But it was often poor in its execution, so while you could sit back and think to yourself "that's quite a clever idea", it was difficult to ever be genuinely affected by it.
"Which one do you want, girl or bloke?"
"Err... the first one."
And then they switch places. They're fighting zombies in their back garden and they're SWITCHING PLACES. Genius.
Its certainly not my idea of comedy.
I expected Big Train-esq scenes of hilarity. See below.
Instead, I got that tripe. See above.
There's a dummy sat there having a serious conversation with a serious accent and voice, in an office.
Its not supposed to be crazy. The way in which its executed is dry and effortless and done with such a talent.
SOTD's cricket bats are apparently funny because: A CRICKET BAT IS THE LAST THING YOUD THINK OF! BWUAHAHAHAH!
Its horrible. You can imagine these smug critics coming out going 'It was so British.'.
you're assuming the cricket bat was *meant* to be funny. Was it? Did Simon Pegg or one of the other writers come up to you afterwards and say "So, what did you think if the cricket bat?" You might as well be saying the fact that he worked in an electronics shop wasn't funny as an argument against the film as a whole being funny.
was there was more to it than out and out comedy. I thought it worked pretty well as a zombie film and the romantic comedy angle worked too. I'm hoping Hot Fuzz'll be a good action film as much as it will be a comedy.
The problem is that Working Title tends to market them purely as comedies then people get disappointed when it's not the all-out laugh fest they hoped for.
Big Train made me laugh myself to death.
Then it went a bit worse when they put laughter on it. - got its leg cut off
Then he did that other one on Channel 4, and I didn't like that. - got other leg cut off
Then he did Shaun Of The Dead. - remaining legless body was trampled by a pack of Wilderbeasts, and then slowly pecked to death by circling vultures.
but if you're not a Spaced fan then you're probably not all that into it the kind of humour Simon Pegg/Edgar Wright do, in which case it's more just not your thing rather than "not funny".
Enough people found Spaced funny to suggest you not liking it is a taste thing rather than it not being any good.
a bit scary in places
But I was probably too young for it.
If its anything like Shaun of The Dead, then I'm glad I wasn't put off Simon Pegg earlier.
Stop changing your story!
but I remember not liking it.
Yknow, like teething when you're a toddler?
i'm really sorry, i dont speak french
What's funnier? That?
Or hitting zombies with cricket bats?
but i think i've remembered it a bit wrong
and that's all that matters.
"Hello? Yeah, yeah that's all fine... Yep, ok. How am I doing? Well, actually I've got a bit of a problem.
Yep, I've erm, turned into a ventriliquist dummy. Yeah, its one of the old scary Victorian ones."
i admit, this is funny:
found that funny.
