I prefer Waiting for Guffman to Best in Show.  It may be the music, or it may be my exposure to am-dram and my recognition of certain people in the movie.

It is neck and neck for me.  I think Guffman is funnier than Show, but I tend to think the performances are better in Show.  I love both movies and you can't go wrong with either.

If you want a job done well hire a professional.

#38 - Leon: The Professional


(78 Points) 9 of 32 Lists - Highest Ranking - #8 George Harrison

Plot Summary - Leon is a leading killer, but also a sensitive man who loves his potted plants. He is moral: "No woman, no children" is the motto of his career. He is his neighbor, Mathilde, a typical family. But her father owned drug lords in the event of a conflict of Norman Stansfield, Mathilde becomes Leon assistance.


Release Date - November 18th 1994

Domestic Gross - $19,501,238

Trivia fact! Leon was actually going to be part of a larger franchise, with the character of Matilda as the lead and new "professional" taking on an even younger protege, though US studios balked at the idea.

Really, people who voted for Cool as Ice?  This is a movie you genuinely feel affection for?  Because if you are doing it because you thought it would be funny to try and get a terrible movie as high on a list of great/loved movies as possible, then go straight to hell for trying to coordinate that.  If you truly love the movie, even as a guilty pleasure, then fine.  But if you are doing it to market an iRiff, then no!  If you coordinated your choices and discussed it with each other (and I can't imagine you didn't) then no.  You are not participating correctly.

It's not even that it's on the list that bugs me.  It's that it was clearly 3 participants who coordinated to give it as high a ranking as possible rather than 3 people who independently cared for the movie.  It's like when I hear people say "If I known it would have only made it this high I would have put it higher."  Would you have put it ahead of something you love more simply so it can be higher?  Then it defeats the purpose of your list.

Just bugs me is all.

It really was a pretty shitty thing to do, you guys. No one fucked around with your Pokemon list.

This description was actually rather good until someone owned drug lords.  Now I realize this must be from a Japanese site and not converted from English to Japanese back into English by babelfish.  You've shown your hand mrbasehart.

Then they let him put Chris Tucker in this and annoy the crap out of everyone:

I like the gimmick myself.  To each his own, I guess.

I'm enjoying it.  I usually don't read the summaries, but this time I am.

I'm really hoping that they were written by someone in an Asian country who doesn't speak English, because I love the thought of them trying to watch Waiting For Guffman, and being completely confused by it.

Really guys, if you want me to "play it straight" with the plot summaries, then I will.  I just figure people know these plots already and don't give a shit about them.  Having a little fun with them is a little bonus to people who actually read them.  Let me know.

I have been skipping over the summaries because they're nonsensical and don't really tell me anything about the movie.

But, I mean, do what you want, I doubt I'd read a hugely in-depth wall of text, either.

Exactly.  With no offense to any of the past LOC's, I've skipped basically all the cut-and-paste stuff from wikipedia and looked only at the results.  If people feel differently, I guess I don't mind changing it, but...does it matter?

I say it's your LoC, you're the one putting in all the work, you can run it however you want.
