    Fancy renting a film today, I can't think of anything in particular I want to watch. I like comedies and horrors.

    Obviously films are down to personal opinion and what one person finds funny or scary an another might not, but just wanting to hear a few peoples films to see if it inspires me and makes me think "oh yeah, I didn't think of that one" kinda thing.

    I only really like comedies or horrors, I'm not after a scary film that's funny :D

    Now I'd normally think "pointless" at these kind of threads, like when someone asks what they should have for lunch, but my thinking is more incase someone triggers my mind and mentions something I didn't think about, as opposed to if I was asking what I should have to eat which would be pointless as they might say black pudding or something random that I hate.

    Cheers

    What sort of 'funny' films do you like? I watched the Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec on saturday which is based on a french comic set in 1920's Paris. Silly but enjoyable. Funny wise my favorites are -

    Amelie
    Blades of Glory
    Dodgeball
    Shaun of the Dead
    Paul

    Horror wise I prefer Japanese horror, so stuff like

    The Ring
    Grudge
    The Eye

    Funniest films for me, dodgeball, old school, that kind of thing.

    Horror wise, has to be the ring, or the descent, the only two horror films that have ever left me on edge, there are lots that have been jumpy but those two i found scary.

    Another one for the descent, I also found dog soldiers to be rather unsettling.

    |As for the funniest film, the money pit. Even now seeing that turkey flying out of the oven cracks me up.

    Anyone liking scary horror films definitely ought to watch 'The cabin in the woods' at least once in their lifetime.

    The film is well made, the story is good, it keeps you guessing for quite a long time and the ending is, well, 'absolutely horrific!'

    There are quite a lot of people, who would go so far as to say that it is the best horror film ever made. Certainly, it is definitely NOT a film for people who are mysticly minded, gentle and of a nervous disposition, because it could disturb their ability to sleep for quite a few nights.

    I've found the following films very funny...

    Nothing to Lose
    Office Space
    Employee of the Month
    and my personal favourite, Supertroopers.

    As for horror, I sat through women in black recently and that wasn't bad.

    I personally thought it was abysmal, half the time it didnt make sense what was going on and it didnt induce any fear, just gory, each to their own, and there are a lot of people that loved it, but i just dont get it. The women were alright though :D

    They were just hopping. Got to agree with Quatermass, although I did think they were talking about my cousin Mel. They were just Hopkins.

    +1 for Event Horizon

    Funniest:
    Paul
    Bad Santa
    Russel Crowe in Robin Hood

    There is a scene in the film where one of the soliders sees the Martians and goes a bit nuts. When asked what he saw he just replied They we just hopping. I though he said they were just Hop-kins.

    I do tend to lose people in my train of thought. Welsh you see.:rolleyes:

    Funniest film for me - Life of Brian.

    Not as funny, or a different humour but an absolute genius of a film - Dr. Strangelove.

    Literally all types, as with anything there are and good and bad examples. Things like spoofs for example, some are very good, others are very stupid.

    Nothing to lose was really good, watched that loads of times.

    Ended up with cabin in the woods, and horrible bosses (I didn't pick that one), not watched them yet though.

    Cheers for the suggestions everyone, there were quite a few films I hadn't even heard of and will look into

    Funny? Anchorman.
    Watched Misery when I was a kid - the most scared I have ever been watching a film.

    edit: for next time :)

    Funniest - if I REALLY had to narrow it down to one then Undercover Blues with Blazing Saddles as number two.
    Scariest - Philidelphia because of how one person was turned into a non person by so many who had known him for years. It makes you think it can happen to anyone.
