I love Con Air, it's also beautiful mockable (though I suspect nobody is taking it seriously...okay, maybe Cage is).

Generally the things on my list are films I would have fun doing an iRiff with Ann on. :)

(2 of 13 lists. Highest ranking - #1 Darth Geek)

Last year's #18: Cowboys & Aliens -(2011)
 
Synopsis:
"Gather close so you might harken the story of Fat Neil. Born stout of heart but large of bone, his adolescent years were shadowed by scorn and mockery. Outlets of fantasy afforded him some escape from the darkness throughout high school and as a man he travelled far to a new school and a new beginning. Or so he thought. The name became a joke. The joke became his life. And Neil fell again into darkness. But this time his thoughts turned to an escape into which we dare not speak.
 
But pain need not be spoken to be known. Not to all. It was strangely Jeff the Liar, son of William the Barely Known, who first became concerned. It was Jeff who pretended to be interested in Dungeons and Dragons in an effort to lift Neil's spirits. And when Jeff's fake interest resulted in Neil giving Jeff all his books explaining 'He wouldn't need them anymore,'  it was Annie the Day Planner, herself a recovering head case, that recognized the signs of coming doom.
 
A council was called - Troy the Obtuse. Shirley the Cloying. Abed the Undiagnosible. Britta the Needlessly Defiant. For reasons that should be obvious Pierce the Insensitive, known also as Pierce the Dickish and Grandpa the Flatulent, was not invited.
 
The group agreed that what Fat Neil needed the most was to feel like a winner for a change. They would invite Neil that Saturday for a game of Dungeons and Dragons designed by Abed to help Neil reclaim his confidence.
 
At the end of the meeting they realized that Chang had been there and felt too awkward to mention it.
 
What they couldn't have known was that they had just scheduled the most important game of Dungeons and Dragons ever. A game which might not only just save a life but might forever change the balance between good... and Pierce."

Ahem.

It has come to my attention that I may have posted the wrong movie summary for number eighteen. My apologies. The responsible parties have been sacked.
