The Neptune City-Saturn Town Review #4

22 Jun

For this installment of the “Neptune City-Saturn Town Review,” let us move away from the world of YouTube cosplay and Japanimation, and instead focus on the world of comedy cinema.

While a lot of popular “supposed comedies” sadly turn out to be more offensive than actually funny, the following list of recommended films is offered in the hopes of introducing readers to a selection of high quality movies which possess that rare heart and soul all really great humor has in abundance.    

A Countess from Hong Kong (1967) Hilarious film directed by Charlie Chaplin

Macaroni (1985) Directed by Ettore Scola. Jack Lemmon is always a pleasure to watch  

Everyone Says I Love You (1996) Drew Barrymore is at her cutest in this highly enjoyable musical by Woody Allen

The Party (1968) A masterpiece from the minds of Blake Edwards and Peter Sellers

The Pink Panther Strikes Again (1976) Edwards and Sellers show off once more, yet the wonderful Herbert Lom joyously steals the entire film

True Stories (1986) David Byrne creates one of the most artistic films of all time, which is also very funny

Paper Heart (2009) Directed by Nicholas Jasenovec, this film offers a sweet fictional documentary on romance which nicely spotlights star Charlyne Yi’s performance art sensibility

Attack of the Killer Tomatoes (1978) Wonderful parody/homage from the zany minds of John De Bello, Steve “Rock” Peace, and Constantine Dillon

Well, that’s all for now, and remember: “Freedom is Ink on the Page!”
