does songs from movies mean a song that is performed in the movie as in a musical, or a song that is heard in a movie/on the soundtrack (songs from the end credits count too i assume?)

In reponse to this question

does songs from movies mean a song that is performed in the movie as in a musical, or a song that is heard in a movie/on the soundtrack (songs from the end credits count too i assume?)


Quote
In response to gojikranz's question:

"Both musical numbers and songs, as long as the song (or at least a cover of another song) originates from the movie.  Keep in mind, later down the line I would like to do a musical numbers list that would come from movies, TV and the theatre.  Songs that just appear at the end credits are perfectly fine.

Well, looks like Top 50 iRiffs is a longshot. I will continue to suggest it in future polls, though, I think it would be great.

Nah exlax is mostly gentle, or attempts to be. You need Phenolphthalein or similar to approximate dysentery's purgative effects.

Yes! Perhaps followed by the mega colon blow scene from Van Wilder.

Explosive Diarrhea, premiering this fall on Fox.

Followed by a brand-new episode of Loaf Pinchers.

That's only with In2- pretty sure the laxative application uses/d H2In. But I suppose it would depend on how acidic ones poop is really.

Wish I could work in a Road to Wellville joke. Post-mortem flatulence, yes. Dana Carvey throwing boxes of shit at members of high society, yes. But alas, no diarrhea that I can recall of.
Title: Re: List of Crap number 52: Vote now or be lame

People here are WAY too familiar with the Road to Wellville.
Title: Re: List of Crap number 52: Vote now or be lame
Post by: Johnny Unusual on September 07, 2011, 12:25:32 PM
I remember it first coming out and wanting to see it (I liked Dana Carvey and it looked fun), but then hearing only that it was pretty terrible and no one should watch it.  I might try it if it ever pops up at the local

BTW, the upcoming movie Hysteria seems to be in a similar vein (it's about the invention of the vibrator) and looks interesting.

Remember when people wanted to see Dana Carvey?  Will the Dana Carvey Show ever come out on DVD?  It was an awesome show.  I loved "Skinheads from Maine".

It depends on how much you appreciate the misguided ambitious of "WTF were they thinking?!" movies. Or, to put it another way, it's a fascinating failure, not a boring failure. How many other times has Anthony Hopkins shared the marquee with Dana Carvey? How many other Victorian period pieces are as utterly obsessed with sex & bowel movements? Seriously, the film plays off like if you mixed Masterpiece Theater with the Farrelly Brothers or Tom Green. And we haven't even gotten into John Cusack's zany corn flakes subplot.

(It's also the hardest I've laughed at anything featuring Matthew Broderick).

I'll conclude with one of Anthony Hopkins' most dignified movie quotes: "An erection is a flagpole on your grave."

How is it a failure? The point of the movie is to highlight the absurdity of Kellogg and his "sanitorium" from the point of view of a modern, post sexual-revolution audience.  It does this very well.

I mean in the sense of AV Club's "My Year of Flops". Perhaps "flop" is a better word.

So we are now past the deadline and it's a tie.  Hmm...
Title: Re: List of Crap number 52: Vote now or be lame
Post by: Tripe on September 08, 2011, 06:19:13 AM
I'd suggest the 12 who didn't vote for either of the ties change their votes to whichever one of those they prefer. The potential for a tie still exists of course but it might break it.

Hmm... well, I'm the potential host of the movie songs list and sarcasm is the potential host o beverages, so I talked to him and told him that I'd be willing to host the drinks list and drop the movie songs list (or postpone it until November).  Is that cool with everyone?  If people desperately want to see songs more, I'm willing to host that instead (though I really do want to see the beverage list myself).

Either way, it looks like I'm going to host whatever happens next, unless sarcasm suddenly changes his mind about the beverage list.
