None of mine yet, though Gymkata is a very good choice.

Folks!- (1992) - 0 points
(0 of 17 lists. Highest ranking - #20 CJones)
   
Directed by Ted Kotcheff
Starring Tom Selleck & Don Ameche

Place on 11's list: N/A
Place on 10's list: N/A
Place on 09's list: N/A
Place on 08's list: N/A

Synopsis:
Jon Aldrich (Tom Selleck) lives the good life: He has a stunning home, a fantastic job and a beautiful wife (Christine Ebersole) and children. But when his folks (Don Ameche and Anne Jackson) move in with him, Jon's ideal life crumbles and before long, he's starting to lose everything -- including his mind. Jon's house and spouse go away, and his assets are frozen during an investigation. But that's just the tip of the iceberg in this madcap comedy.

Back for real tomorrow, with a special celebrity guest list of wanted films.

Oh, and a boring actual image of the movie poster:

GAME ON!!!

49. Demolition Man - (1993) - 27 points
(2 of 17 lists. Highest ranking - #5 DB Barnes)

I've always thought this would make a good riff. It's so target-rich. Crazy premise, over-the-top acting, ridiculous costumes, plenty of stupid action quips, all kinds of goofy futuristic elements,  and lame attempts at humor. It just seems like they could a field day with it. Stallone, Snipes, Dennis Leary, Rob Schneider, seashells, Taco Bell of the future, new no-touch sex, how could this not turn out well?

45. Stargate - (1994) - 29 points
(3 of 17 lists. Highest ranking - #10 Dr. Smith)

Had Stargate at #19. I enjoy the movie but I think there's enough material to make for a fun and effective riff. A lot of it's just silly and over-the-top.

VIVA IL ESORDIO DEL DIABETE ADULTO DUCE!!!

Read the line above when typing that one up. It's been corrected.

Oh man, thank for including that. I removed it because I knew no one else would pick it.

Yeah, it;s a comedy. If you consider Dom Ameche having Alzheimer's, and his wife and he decide to commit suicide comedy. So, gun, rat poison, jump off a building... No, the clear choice is to drive down the highway on the wrong side of the road. Heck, that way, we might even get some else killed.

I could have sworn when I saw this in the theater there was also a scene where they walked out onto a highway, hoping to get hit by a car. Not surprisingly, they cause a huge wreck instead. But I can't find in on youtube... Now that I think about, I do know they made a made for TV version. I bet they replaced one highway scene with the other.

Oh, and Tom Selleck gets shit on the whole movie, including losing a toe and getting one of his testicles crushed. I guess that was the "comedy" part.

42. Flash Gordon - (1980) - 30 points
(2 of 17 lists. Highest ranking - #6 CJ Jones)

Oh, I just noticed Flash Gordon made it. See, I did contribute something new. And yes, I did think of this because of the Highlander riff.

FLASH.. AH-AHHHH He'll save every one of us!

Yeah, that was a good idea. I would have put that on my list if I had thought of it....And seriously, Taco Bell? Really subtle product placement. A future where all restaurants are Taco Bell really is a dystopian future :speechless:

Not the worst restaurant product place though. That would be what I had at #4

As much of a target as it is, Demolition Man seems completely self-aware, and aware of the fact that it's a really silly yet massively fun action movie. It actually kind of riffs on itself if you ask me.
