Have I Got News For You
39x02 (8/4/10 edition; extended repeat)
Bizarrely belated repeat (it's from the start of April... as if the date above didn't tell you that) for this particularly good edition of HIGNFY, now with even more laughs.

Guess Who (2005)
[#66 in 100 Films in a Year 2010]
An inverted semi-remake of Guess Who's Coming to Dinner. Not as good, of course.

this week on 100 Films

2 new reviews were posted to 100 Films in a Year this week, and they were...

Clue (1985)
it’s the kind of film that’s unremittingly daft, but it knows it is, and if one gets on board with that then it’s a very enjoyable experience... a mix of hilarious farce and fast-paced screwball comedy. It’s Agatha Christie meets Fawlty Towers.

Guess Who's Coming to Dinner (1967)
It could easily have been a simplistic message movie — these people are liberal, these people are racist, etc — but instead there’s complexity at every turn... these characters could just become ciphers for the arguments and debates; but they’re not, they’re characters, having believable reactions, and from this comes the debate.

Also this week, as we've moved into July it's time for the monthly look at my progress.

More next Sunday.
