Featured Comedy Movies

I’ts a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (1963)

 Greed is a trope used in the realm of fiction to be associated with drama, and usually involves some very thematic elements to it. Yet the theme really has not been associated with the genre of comedy. Enter the 1963 film “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World”, a comedy that showcases a lot of […]

St. Vincent (2014)

 This movie opens up with our main character telling a very dry joke, which sets up the tone for the rest of the film. “St. Vincent” is a comedy that puts focus on one grumpy old man trying to come to terms with his life. The resulting effort is a gem of originality that has […]

Big Hero 6 (2014)

 Ever since Disney purchased Marvel back in 2009, we have gotten a lot of good action/superhero films that have a strong connection to their continuity. However, with today’s feature, Marvel and Disney are branching out and creating something completely different. The finalized product is the motion picture for today “Big Hero 6” based off Marvel’s […]

    Here’s hoping you’re less political than the Oscars!

  3. 1. Black Swan
    2. Inception
    3. Scott Pilgrim vs the World
    4. How to Train Your Dragon
    5. The Social Network

  4. Both fantastic lists, and John, of course I am.

  5. the thing that aggravates me more than anything about the Oscars is that the films that deserve them aren’t credited with what they should get because they didn’t pay to be nominated or the people in the movie’s views weren’t liberal enough outside of the movie to get the Oscars on their side.

    1. Toy Story 3
    2. Inception

    1. Shutter Island
    2. The Girl Who Played With Fire
    3. The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest
    4. Kick Ass
    5. Hot Tub Time Machine

    I have sadly not had the privilege to see Inception, or Toy Story 3, even though I desperately want to.

    I kind of enjoyed Skyline when I went to see it, but it’s not in my top 5.

  8. Ah, I forgot Four Lions! That should probably replace Kick Ass on my list… Though it’s a close one.

  9. Mask, I’d recommend you see those, otherwise good list, Dr., good list, and John, its all good, I’ll count both of them for you.

  10. maskofsanity says:

    Thanks J.C, I’ll look into those.

  11. Man, only 5? It’s been such a good year for movies in my opinion… Well, I guess if I absolutely had to pick…

    1. Kick-Ass
    2. Alice in Wonderland
    3. Easy A
    4. Unthinkable
    5. Toy Story 3

    It maybe an unorthodox list, but those were probably the ones I enjoyed the most.

    Thanks!

    Chappo.

  12. Welcome, mask, and Chappo, unorthodox lists are what are needed, because normally in an awards show, the people picking the movie that will win are fat old people in a room with a ballot box that are expressing their views on how a liberalized and plotty movie, good or bad, shall always win the greatest award. This is for the people who enjoyed the movies the most: the people. And the people, among this site I’m sure there are a lot, have unorthodox lists. So its a good list, thank you.
