Movie Quiz 05-24-2024 and movies + Entertainment

Sometimes all you need is a good laugh, complexity be damned. Sometimes all you want is a warm bath of familiarly, dually titillated by belly laughs of the most finely honed, classic slapstick, while shivering in reverence (maybe even in fright, if you're of the right disposition) at some of Universal's finest xxxxxxx mayhem. Which is why, sometimes, you can't do any better than romp around with xxx xxxxx & xxx xxxxxxxx, and their meeting with xxxxxxxxxxx (and friends) is arguably the most purely joyful escapist fun any of their mashes have to offer.
This is the film that really sparked my interest in horror films. IT is a comedy laced with horrific elements. It is a wonderful blend of the absurd with the scary There is so much good about this film that it is hard to begin. This is probably their best film outing both in their comic timing and their ability to play off each other so convincingly. Land this movies name and we all watch.

Hey, congratulations MPH! I am late but my consolation is that I probably would not have guessed the movie even if I was on time. 🤔

Hey, Tex! I had to help a family member with something so I ended up being late. I would not have known the movie anyway, so it worked out okay. Off to look at movie choices and videos now. 🙂

Oh good. Glad you could make it. Certain things in life come first before play. Completely understand. The comedy Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein are a belly full of laughs. One of the best.

I remember seeing Witness For The Prosecution the first time and had no idea about the ending. To say the least it shocked me somewhat.

Great clips. Weirdly Don’t You Want Me got stuck in my head a few days back. Letter To Three Wives is a movie I have seen countless times. I bet KJ is thrilled with The Big Country. 😉 I will try to keep my 👀 open for the quiz.

Btw I have been thinking about you and the crazy Texas weather. I hope you missed it all.

I've been running the game of luck so far. Lately missing the big part of the storm by just a few miles. Over the top of city or get the calmer parts of severe weather. Keeping a watchful eye out for them 👀

10 of 10, big fan of both of them.

10/10. I always liked Richard Boone. For the most part, his presence and abilities were wasted by movie producers. Extremely powerful in any medium. Everyone thinks of him in the iconic Have Gun Will Travel but I loved Hec Ramsey just as much. It’s a shame Hec appeared in only 6 or so episodes of NBC Mystery Theatre. Hec was every bit as good as Columbo but a little “edgier”.
