Top 10 Signs You Are On The Wrong Site

Postby Joe Migliore » Sun Apr 01, 2012 4:59 am

10. Your favorite Chaplin shorts are the ones with Oliver Hardy.

9. You think Jack White produces better albums than comedies.

8. You are frustrated that The Dippy Doo Dads never made any talkies, thereby robbing you of the opportunity to hear their voices.

7. You are currently circulating an internet petition to make stretch-printing the recognized standard for all silent films released on DVD.

6. Though you are not a fan of Billy Dooley, you are willing to concede that he made a good Wimpy in that POPEYE movie.

5. You’ve written a scathing review of The Marx Brothers DVD Collection for not making HUMORISK the first disc.

4. You refuse to watch THE TRIUMPH OF LESTER SNAPWELL, citing your intense hatred of infomercials.

3. You vaguely remember reading somewhere that Bud Abbott made silent movies with comedian Lloyd Haroldton, and constantly pester Universal for a complete box set.

2. You passionately believe that the action onscreen should never move at a faster rate than the time it takes for an actor to lumber across a stage, and are quite willing to spend eighteen minutes of grim determination waiting for a split reel comedy to unspool.

1. You rented BECOMING CHARLEY CHASE for your brother’s bachelor party.

High praise, indeed! Thank you both for bringing films like THE HOME OWNER and A THIEF CATCHER safely back to their respective canons. You guys are the real deal.

I love the image of a room full of sweaty men sitting through four discs of Sennett & Roach shorts, waiting for the dirty part.

With titles like HARD KNOCKS and HE WOULDN'T STAY DOWN, who can blame them?
