    The Big Lebowski is always fun.

    ETA: Would a scary movie be okay? I always want to watch one but am such a huge wuss. Maybe group watching would make it okay.

    What have you seen? I'll nominate Poltergeist or The Devil's Backbone if you like a good ghost story.

    I haven't seen The Devil's Backbone and Spanish horrors are usually scary as shit. So my vote is for that one.

    She might never watch another horror movie, though. But at least if she's only seen one, it will have been the right one. :lol:

    I'm game for Devil's Backbone! Like you said, if I only end up watching one, it might as wel be a good one.

    Convo that just hapened:
    Me: Have you seen Devil's Backbone? Do you think I could handle it?
    P: Yeah, you can practically see it from our house.
    Me: WTF? What about where we live reminds you of it?
    P: The fact that we can see it...? It's the ridge that leads up to Mt. Baldy.

    It's the best stormy night chiller. It's not full of gore and jump scenes, but it's creepy. I think you'll like it.

    Re: Chicken Movie Club

    That's the kind of scary movie I prefer. Jump scares piss me off.

    I still haven't watched Mean Girls. But I don't care what is picked. I will pick up the movie if I don't own it!

    Re: Chicken Movie Club

    I am really ashamed that I haven't seen some of these films and I actually considered myself a movie buff up til now.

    So, not trying to change the subject or anything (*ahem*) but I'd just like to point out that deet hasn't seen Mean Girls yet.

    Re: Chicken Movie Club

    Haha! Don't feel bad, I had to spend a couple years deliberately catching up on stuff I'd never seen, and there are still things people would gasp at me for missing. I would go to the movie theatre almost every week, but somehow never got around to watching much older stuff. Every time a movie alluded to or spoofed a classic, it went right over my head. My rooster also makes sure I watch things I wouldn't choose for myself. But let's be clear - he's not always right. He's that guy who goes to Blockbuster (R.I.P.) and chooses the movie that has only one copy on the shelf. Not always terrible, but frequently.

    Here, Sassy, a gift for you: I have never seen The Godfather.

    You're welcome.

    Re: Chicken Movie Club

    LOL, V, I haven't seen Godfather either. :lol: Can I just say, though, that my shame doesn't even compare to how happy I am that I get to watch these great films with you guys? I am seriously giddy and can't wait for next weekend. I really enjoyed the Oscar Challenge, but I know it would get to be very taxing to have a challenge every month. So I'm really, really happy about Chicken Movie Club.

    Deet! <3

    I added Super Troopers to the list for obvious reasons.

    Obviously, because you've been reading my movie mind lately.
