Okay, I should give out the awards for that competition a bit ago.
I'm giving out second prizes just because. You get an LJ code if you ask really nicely ;)
Least Politically Correct - Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure and Schindler's List (trippykel
My God, It's Full Of Ninja Stars - Shaolin Soccer and 2001 (cathexis
Most Destructive Towards Childhood Memories - American Beauty and Muppets In Space (smotheredcries
Most Potentially Painful To Watch - Transformers The Movie and Out Of Africa (heronblue
Most nightmare-inducing - American Pie and Serial Experiments Lain (they are not movies, and I'm bending the rules just because I find it truly disturbing) (bleukes
Most obscure - absolutely everything (mopalia
) wrote. Okay, except Apocalypse Now and Toys. But that one would have worked. (I came up with The Matrix and Toys also, which would have worked in an entirely different way.)
Best special effects budget ever - Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Apollo 13 (Julia, who's getting an LJ code from me anyway just so she can start an lj)
The one I almost chose for first place, but which barely lost out . . .
Faces of Death and Lilo & Stitch. captandor
. So so wrong. Although I'm not sure Faces of Death counts as a good movie :P
And the winner - the only one that caused me to instantly visualize it completely against my will.
Bambi and The Exorcist.
There are many ways you could do that movie, and all of them make my skin crawl.
I liked 'em all, though some of them I didn't recognize and had to go digging around on IMDB.
Send me an IM if you want an LJ code. ;)
