Widdershins go to the movies for a laugh
Posted December 12, 2015on:
Well we’ve wrapped another week and basically there was a lot of bad or unpleasant news this week.
We’ve learned that ISIS may have the capability to print out fake Syrian passports. That type of news is certainly not going to help avert the raging paranoia that is…well…raging in the country right now. Nor will it probably stop the surge in gun purchases around San Bernardino California. Meanwhile, also in California, there’s a huge leak of methane gas that’s causing concern to nearby residents. Heading to the other coast we heard about a Boston commuter train lost control due to “operator error”, which translated into the train operator left the train without setting at least one of two brakes on the train.
I’ve purposefully left out politics because really, is there anything more to be said?
So with that I thought we would take a trip to the movies and especially comedic movies. We humans have used comedy throughout the ages as a stress reliever and to, at times, poke fun at ourselves. So with that in mind let’s take a look at some of our favorite and “classic” comedic movies. I’m only going to put up a few so that the post doesn’t drag too much in loading. However, there are tons of them out there so feel free to post whatever strikes your funny bone or your fancy. It’s a completely open thread.
(1) Monkey Business – 1931 Marx Brothers
(2) The Navigator – 1924 Buster Keaton (diving scene)
(3) His Girl Friday – 1940 Rosalind Russell and Cary Grant
(4) Auntie Mame – 1958 Rosalind Russell (Masterful Gaze & Horse Mount)
(5) Airplane! – 1980 Automatic Pilot Scene
(6) Mrs. Doubtfire – 1993 Robin Williams (looks like a lady scene)

So okay Widdershins there ya go! I tried covering a comic movie from different decades up to the 1990s. Obviously there are many more and besides which I didn’t even touch the 2000s. So put on your thinking or laughing caps and show us some of your favorites below. This is a completely open thread that you may take wherever you wish.
