10 znanih filmskih likov, s katerimi bi radi pili

Oživimo svoje filmske fantazije in prijatelje, ki pijejo

Od Jamesa Bonda, ki je srkal njegove podpisne koktajle, do Franka Tanka, ki je v rekordnem času odložil pivski bong, smo cenili skoraj vsako vrsto pivskega filmskega trenutka.

Obožujemo koktajle in filme. Edino, kar je bolje, je filmski lik, ki rad pije.

Od Jamesa Bonda, ki je srkal njegove podpisne koktajle, do Franka Tanka, ki je v rekordnem času odložil pivski bong, smo cenili skoraj vsako vrsto pivskega filmskega trenutka. (Morda bi morala Akademija razmisliti o novi kategoriji oskarjev ...)

Tako smo sestavili seznam 10 najboljših moških filmskih likov, s katerimi bi radi popili ali preživeli večer. Koga bi dodali na naš seznam?

James Bond, Casino Royale, Kvant tolažbe, in Skyfall
To je enostavno, kajne? Nikakor ne bi mogli podati par martinijev z najbolj debonairnim tajnim agentom v zgodovini. Ali naroča klasično večerjo, medtem ko igra poker na življenje ali smrt Casino Royale ali fotografiranje tekile s škorpijonom na roki Skyfall, nedvomno bi nas nekaj o nauku o pitju lahko naučilo Bond Daniel Craig.

Opomba urednika: Spodaj je odlična objava gosta pisatelja Garryja Bermana in#8211 avtorja fantastične knjige Best of the Britcoms, odličen vodnik po zgodovini in najboljših britanskih komedijah#8217. Hvala Garry!

Pred nekaj več kot desetimi leti je bila prvič objavljena moja knjiga Best of the Britcoms, ki praznuje petdeset najboljših britanskih sitcomov, ki so prečkali Atlantik in okrasili naš ameriški eter. Bilo je delo ljubezni in z veseljem sem intervjuval mnoge pisce, igralce, režiserje in producente najbolj uspešnih britanskih komedij. Revidirana in posodobljena izdaja Best of the Britcoms je bila pravkar objavljena s sedmimi novimi poglavji s programi, ki se v ZDA predvajajo od leta 2000. Kljub temu me je Anglotopia prosila, naj izberem le deset mojih najljubših. Kljub časti moram priznati svojo nezmožnost omejiti seznam na deset in ponuditi svoj seznam desetih (plus dva) najljubših britkonov vseh časov.

1. ‘Alo, ’Alo!

Brezsramno neumna, hitra in smešna farsa, ki se je v drugi svetovni vojni odvijala v Nemčiji pod okupacijo Francije. Strahopeten lastnik kavarne Rene Artois se znajde ujet v neštetih dovršenih, a brezobzirnih shemah, ki jih je skoval francoski upor, ko poskušajo preprečiti vojne operacije Nemcev. Gorden Kaye kot Rene vodi veliko zasedbo 18 ekscentričnih likov skozi to izjemno mešanico pametno absurdnega dialoga in grozljivega udarca. Sama komična iznajdljivost te predstave je lahko osupljiva.

2. Britanski imperij

Postavljena v primestnem centru za prosti čas (tj. Klub zdravja/rekreacijski objekt), ta serija morda ni znana v ZDA, toda v svojem času so jo v Veliki Britaniji imenovali Fawlty Towers iz 90. let. Ta kompliment ni bil upravičeno, vendar menim, da je Brittas boljša od obeh serij. Chris Barrie igra v vlogi Gordona Brittasa, praktičnega vodje centra, ki je nagnjen k katastrofam in ki s svojimi dobronamernimi, a posegajočimi načini nehote pripelje svoje osebje in stranko do skoraj uporništva. Toda zaposleni imajo tudi svoje slabosti. Tipična epizoda bo imela za vrhunski trenutek več nepovezanih težav, ki pogosto vključujejo eno ali dve eksploziji.

3. Dodatki

Stripovska mojstrovina, avtorja Rickyja Gervaisa in Stephena Merchanta. To nadaljevanje njihove prelomne serije The Office predstavlja njihovo značilno komedijo nerodnega premora, vendar v novem kontekstu. Gervais igra problematičnega igralca Andyja Millmana, ki dela kot dodatek, medtem ko čaka na svoj veliki odmor. To se zgodi, ko BBC -ju proda svojega pilota sitcoma, vendar je njegova ustvarjalna vizija posejana do te mere, da se znajde v nasprotju med iskanjem slave in bogastva ter svojo osebno integriteto. Ashley Jensen je briljantna kot Andyjeva platonska prijateljica Maggie, Merchant pa krik kot njegov nesposobni agent. Številne gostujoče zvezde s seznama A igrajo tudi popačene različice sebe.

4. Da, minister/Da, predsednik vlade

Notranje delovanje in dvojni posli v britanski vladi morda ne zvenijo kot najboljša krma za sitcom. Toda pisca Anthony Jay in Jonathan Lynn združujeta svoje vrhunske sposobnosti, da bi nam predstavila resnično smešno serijo, ki se norčuje iz birokracije na najbolj nenavaden način. Paul Eddington igra v vlogi Jim Hackerja, ministra za upravne zadeve, ki si prizadeva za zajezitev vladnih odpadkov nenehno preprečeval zasebni sekretar Humphrey Appleby (Nigel Hawthorne). Humphrey uživa v ustvarjanju birokratske birokracije in po potrebi zlahka zmede Hackerja z množico vrtoglavih dvojic. Dialog zahteva, da so gledalci pozorni, a smeh se sliši ob stalnem posnetku. Ko Hacker postane premier, serija gladko spremeni svojo satiro v svetovne zadeve.

5. Dobri sosedje (Dobro življenje v Veliki Britaniji)

Konvencionalen, a popolnoma očarljiv in ljubek domači sitcom iz sredine sedemdesetih let. Tom Good (Richard Briers) je izpadel iz podgane, da bi nadaljeval življenje samooskrbe. Njegova ljubka žena Barbara (Felicity Kendal) ga podpira na debelo in tanko, saj si prizadevajo za pridelavo zelenjave in rejo živine na svojem dvorišču. Toda njuna soseda, Jerry in Margo Ledbetter (nekdanji sodelavec Toma in njegove snobovske žene), pogosto trpita potrpljenje zaradi nekonvencionalnega in nekoliko higiensko izpodbijanega načina življenja dobrega. Njuno tesno prijateljstvo preživi številne preizkušnje.

6. Vikar iz Dibleyja

Francoske zvezde v tem skoraj popolnem sitcomu nastopajo kot gospa vikarka, ki tiho vasico Dibley obrne na glavo s svojo življenjsko željo, neumnim smislom za humor in pristno ljubeznijo do prebivalcev. Toda ona se nenehno spopada z Davidom Hortonom, zadušljivim predsednikom pestrega mestnega sveta. Dawn French kaže talent, ki ji zdi, da njeni nekdanji komičarski partnerici Jennifer Saunders primanjkuje, torej igra resničen, zelo človeški lik, v nasprotju z vrhunsko karikaturo. Francoščina je odlična, prav tako njeni kolegi. Ustvaril in skupaj napisal plodovit Richard Curtis (Blackadder, štiri poroke in pogreb, ljubezen pravzaprav).

7. Ali vas strežejo?

Ta oddaja, ki je dolga leta glavna podružnica PBS, nas obravnava dileme, sheme in neskončne dvojčke, ki si jih izmenjujejo prodajno osebje veleblagovnice Grace Brothers. Vsaka epizoda je precej tanka, zato se raje osredotočite na pisane like, ko se ukvarjajo tako s strankami kot drug z drugim. Njihova čudovito lahka kemija se razkrije v vsaki epizodi. John Inman kot gospod Humphries je pogosto izpostavljen, moj najljubši pa je bil vedno Trevor Bannister kot hitro govoreči in modrostni gospod Lucas.

8. Oče Ted

Drzno nepopustljiv sitcom po ameriških standardih (v Bostonu je bil dobesedno prepovedan). Trojica irskih duhovnikov in#8211 oče Ted Crilly (Dermot Morgan), njegov imbecilni mlajši kolega, oče Dougal McGuire in starejši, nenehno pijan oče Jack Hackett. Imajo spretnost, da se prepustijo različnim shemam, ki so lahko nekoliko manj kot svete, in imajo za posledico, da se duhovniki nehote ponižujejo v javnosti. Serija se ponaša s nadrealističnimi zastoji, smešnim dialogom in vsestransko komično senzibilnostjo mnoge svete institucije obravnava kot pošteno igro. Toda komedija tukaj je preveč absurdna, da bi jo jemali resno, če veste, kaj mislim.

9. Padec in vzpon Reginalda Perrina

Najbolj nepozabna vloga velikega Leonarda Rossitra kot izvršnega direktorja podjetja za sladice na robu živčnega zloma. Njegove bliskovito hitre dostave in nervozni maniri odlično izražajo človeka, ki ga življenjski pritiski ne razkrijejo. Potem ko se je ponaredil lastne smrti in nekaj časa prikrito potoval, se vrne domov, da se loti niza bizarnih novih podvigov. Prava klasika.

10. Ena noga v grobu

Ta varljivo preprost sitcom, dobitnik ducata televizijskih nagrad, se ponaša z več novostmi v pripovedovanju zgodb in produkciji. Skrbni Victor Meldrew (Richard Wilson), prisiljen v zgodnjo upokojitev, mora vsak dan najti načine, da se zaposli. Toda ko se on in njegova trpeča žena Margaret trudita živeti mirno življenje (to je, ko Victor ni v vojni s sosedi, uradniki v trgovinah in ostalim svetom), se redno znajdejo v najbolj grozljivem. komičnih situacij in nesporazumov. Zapleteno izrisani scenariji Davida Renwicka –, ki pogosto dovolijo, da se liki odzovejo na zaplete, preden smo gledalci seznanjeni z njimi#, so vsaj domiselni.

11. Rdeči škrat

Ta divje domišljijski kultni ljubljenec uspešno združuje najboljše iz komedije in znanstvene fantastike, kakršnega pred ali po tem ni naredil noben program na obeh straneh Atlantika. Serija se odvija 3 milijone let v prihodnosti na krovu velike vesoljske ladje Red Dwarf. Na ladji so le David Lister, njegova mačka v človeški podobi (dolga zgodba), Holly, ladijski računalnik, Kryten, mehanoid in v hologramu pokojni Arnold Rimmer, ki je nehote ubil celotno posadko , vključno z njim, pred mnogimi lunami (Lesterjeva nekdanja punca Kristine Kochanski se pridruži predstavi kot redna v svoji kasnejši seriji). Komedija je lahko neumna, včasih groba, a vedno čudovita, saj se tolpa sprehaja po galaksiji, kjer se srečuje z novimi oblikami življenja, potuje skozi časovne razsežnosti in med seboj igra mladoletne potegavščine.


Pijani nered: 9 odličnih alkoholnih filmskih likov

Vsaka skupina prijateljev ima pijanca, vsaka družina pa alkoholika. Tukaj v Cinema Blendu imamo več. To se zgodi, če podjetje ni obremenjeno s poslovnimi pravili ravnanja. Od občasnega službenega viskija do devetih ali desetih piv na božični zabavi kar najbolje izkoristimo politiko odprtih barov, toda celo najbolj prekaljene pijače med nami je podrl Paul Kemp & rsquos Romov dnevnik. Kako za vraga kdo pije 161 miniatur? Z agresivno gorečnostjo po alkoholu in odločno trdnostjo, da se pomakne naprej.

Njegova strategija tal in funt bi vas lahko zlobno zajebala na lastna jetra, vendar pa je navdušujoča tudi na način, da greš trdo ali na dom Betty Ford. Nekateri izmed nas so to navdihnili, da smo začeli prositi za dvojčke. Še pomembneje pa je, da nas je & rsquos navdihnilo, da smo se neskončno prepirali o sporočilih Google Chat in Facebook o tem, zakaj so nekateri kinematografski pijanci boljši od drugih. Na koncu nismo mogli doseči soglasja, zato smo se odločili, da vsem omogočimo, da zagovarjajo svojega favorita.

Nekateri člani na tem likvidnem seznamu so zlobni pijanci, drugi le občasno. Ne glede na to, ali tečejo proti zabavi ali proč od zajebane preteklosti, vsi pogosto in z užitkom vržejo omako nazaj. Tu so Cinema Blend & rsquos 9 najljubših filmskih alkoholikov in hellip


Doc From Nagrobnik

Težko je, če ne bi imeli neskončne hvaležnosti za junaka, ki se lahko napije in kljub temu brez težav vzame ves vaš denar v poker, ubije vas z najhitrejšimi pištolami na zahodu in med smrtjo šepeta popolno enoplastno. Tak je primer Doca Hollidayja, ki ga je v sodobni zahodni klasiki igral Val Kilmer Nagrobnik. Za razliko od številnih likov na tem seznamu je Doc tudi eden redkih pijancev v zgodovini kinematografije, ki se zdi, da pije z namenom, saj počasi umira zaradi tuberkuloze. Še bolje pa je dejstvo, da ni pijanec, ki uporablja alkoholizem za izogibanje odgovornosti in je v resnici globoko zvest prijatelj. Kljub svoji bolezni in nagnjenosti k popivanju poskrbi, da premaga Wyatta Earpa do obračuna z Ringom in ga ubije z enim samim hitrim strelom v glavo. Doc Holliday kaže vse klasične znake pijanca: on & rsquos je nepremišljen, prepoten, govori naenkrat in zaničuje svoj govor. Toda na tem seznamu ni drugega znaka, ki bi si ga želeli bolj kot tesnega zaveznika. Poskušal sem povedati, da je on in vaš đesek.


Arthur From Arthur

Dudley Moore in rsquos upodobitev Arthurja Bacha v komediji leta 1981 Arthur je ljubezniv pijanec v nasprotju z uničujočim alkoholikom. Arthur, dedič bogastva, je bogat, samski in uživa v življenju v New Yorku. Predstavil se nam je kot človek, ki nima razloga za treznost. Vozil se je v elegantnem avtomobilu in skrbel zanj vdani strežnik, njegova družina pa plačuje račune in mu nudi vse pijače, prostitutke in domišljijsko življenje, ki jih potrebuje. Čudno, kljub vsemu ostaja všečen. Označite ga do različnih časov, toda poleg tega, kako vpliva na njegovo vedenje, Arthur & rsquos alkoholizem ni res obravnavan kot resno vprašanje. Pitje je zanj le še eno uživanje, saj se šali in živi razmeroma brezskrbno. Ko pa se sooči z izbiro ljubezni ali denarja, se odloči za ljubezen, raje je z nekom, ki ga osrečuje, kot da je bogat, z nekom, ki ne ve, kar dokazuje, da pod svojo igrivo, občasno podpito in na nek način otroško zunanjostjo je človek z značajem.


Martha From Kdo & rsquos se boji Virginije Woolf?

Elizabeth Taylor je bila ena najlepših in najbolj znanih žensk na svetu, ko se je strinjala, da bo igrala Martho, zlobno, spolno agresivno in da, pijano, ženo Georgea leta Kdo se boji Virginije Woolf? Dejstvo, da Georgea igra njen prav tako slavni mož iz resničnega življenja Richard Burton, samo še povečuje intrigo, ko oba preživita večer, ko se razrežeta in uničujeta, vse to priča zgroženim mladim parom Nick in Honey. Film je mojstrski igralski razred in poka z začaranim dialogom, ki bi ga lahko napisal le Edward Albee, toda Taylorjeva Martha je zlonamerno središče vsega, kar izliva vitriol in neskončne monologe s prakso ženske, ki je leta preživela njen mož in igralka, ki je vse svoje življenje preživela na platnu. Martha ni ravno tak lik, ki si ga lahko predstavljate na naslednji večerji, vendar tudi ni daleč, takšna ženska, ki je življenje zabave, dokler nenadoma, nasilno ne postane grda. Tudi ko popolnoma razpade in potone v svoj neskončno napolnjen koktajl, ne morete odtrgati oči od nje.


Kilometri od Stransko

Nihče ni rekel, da moraš za besnega alkoholika vrniti poceni pivo ali celo najdražjo alkoholno pijačo. Če so se, se še niso srečali Stransko"Miles Raymond, človek, katerega ljubezen do vina pogosto prehaja od poznavalca do velikega potrošnika. Miles, ki ga odlično igra Paul Giamatti, je nekakšen poraženec. No, nekako je velik zguba. Svojega romana ne more izdati, zato z neumnostjo poučuje angleščino. Ne more preboleti svoje bivše žene, čeprav se je preselila k novemu moškemu. In niti najboljšemu prijatelju ne more prirediti moške moške v dolini Napa, ne da bi na poti ukradel nekaj dolarjev iz maminega predala za nogavice. Pošteno je reči, da Miles preveč pije, da bi prikril svojo zavrnitev in neuspeh, a ker se mu to dogaja tako pogosto, porabi kar precej. To doseže vrhunec v prizoru, ko vinogradniški strežnik noče napolniti kozarca, zato namesto tega Miles pograbi vedro za pljuvanje in mu v razjapljena usta, po ustnicah in vse po njem, vrže celotno mešanico različnih vin in sline. Žalosten prizor za tako pametnega, čeprav pretencioznega človeka. vendar še vedno ne bo pil nobenega prekletega merlota!


Alan From Moje najljubše leto

Hollywood nam je dal nešteto različic pijancev, W.C. Fields in Dudley Moore sta bila družabna. John Belushi je bil nemaren. Nic Cage je bil bojevit in naravnost uničujoč. Toda Peter O & rsquoToole je uspel biti vse zgoraj našteto, medtem ko je igral Richarda Benjamina & rsquos, ki je zbledel matinejski idol Alan Swann Moje najljubše leto. Domnevno gre za zgodbo o mladem piscu komedije (Mark Linn-Baker), ki skuša svojega junaka obdržati na klavrnem podstavku občudovanja. Toda film hitro postane vitrina za O & rsquoToole & rsquos zvit, pijan čar. Za Swanna je alkohol rešitev (in vzrok) življenjskih & rsquos težav & hellip, čeprav mu tekoči pogum omogoča, da se izogne ​​nekaterim spektakularnim enoplasticam iz scenarija Dennisa Palumba in Normana Steinberga & rsquosa. Ko so mu povedali, da je stranišče, ki ga je vstopil, za ženske, se O & rsquoToole odzove, & ldquoTako je *to *, gospa, vendar moram vsake toliko časa skoznjo preliti malo vode. & Rdquo Legenda O & rsquoToole & rsquos temelji na Errolu Flynnu . Tako kot Cage je bil tudi O & rsquoToole nominiran za oskarja zaradi svojih pijanih norčij, ki dokazujejo, da je eden od načinov, kako stati med hojo po rdeči preprogi na prestižni podelitvi nagrad Hollywood & rsquos, igrati padajoč pijan na zaslonu.


Gospodična Hannigan From Annie

Carol Burnett & rsquos izvajanje Miss Hannigan v različici 1982 Annie je pretiravanje ženske, ki ima v srcu preproste želje. Želela bi si, da bi ji moški grizel uho, ničesar drugega ne bi imela rada, kot da bi tepkala po punčkah in rsquo pegicah, in bi se odrekla vsemu kadi na svetu, če bi prepoved prenehala. V tem času je zadovoljna, da v skorjani, razpadajoči kadi skuha škodljivo pijačo in nosi spodnje perilo kot dnevna pijača. Vse bi se lahko nadaljevalo tako v nedogled, toda v ospredje sta prišla ta sirota Annie in ta stand-up, okusen Daddy Warbucks. Toda pravi katalizator, ki je na koncu privedel do propada Miss Hannigan & rsquos, je njen brat Rooster, ki načrtuje prevaro Warbucksa za nekaj denarja. Nenadoma gospodična Hannigan vidi naprej kot naslednji vmes s pralnico. Lahko se potuje skozi rutine fizične komedije in si privošči romantične radijske programe. Ona mora delovati dovolj, da vidi skozi prevaro svojega brata in rsquosa. V filmu John Huston & rsquos Carol Burnett konča spremenjeno žensko. Toda v trenutku, ko jo pokliče, se gospodična Hannigan konča. Resnično dober pijan lik deluje le, če je dober in pijan.


Jimmy From Svojo lastno ligo

Edina stvar, ki jo je Jimmy Dugan udaril močneje kot baseball, je bila steklenica. Zaradi pitja je nekdanji zvezdi razbila kolena, ki je padla skozi okno hotela. iz požara, ki ga je začel. Hudiča, tako so slabi, da se niti med drugo svetovno vojno ne more boriti. Z vsemi sposobnimi moškimi, ki gredo v tujino, ZDA naredijo nekaj nepredstavljivega - dekleta pustijo igrati baseball. Prav tako obupno potezo liga za trenerja pripelje nekdanjega sluga, bodočo dvorano slavnih in sedanjočega padlega pijanega Dugana. V vlogi Tom Hanks predstavlja eno mojih najljubših predstav. Sprva se le pojavi jezen, jemlje dolge urine, nato pa sedi v kotu in si praska jajca. Žal, nasmejan, maha s svojim klobukom in podpisuje žogice za otroke ("izogibaj se ploskanju, Jimmy Dugan"), ampak ko gre za igre, no, on ni trener z žogo, ker nima igralcev z žogo, ima dekleta. Seveda se počasi spušča v igre in odvaja omako, oboje predvsem po zaslugi Dottie Geene Davis. Vedno mi je bil všeč trenutek na avtobusu, ko ga je prepričala, naj odloži bučko in vzame steklenico koksa. To mi skoraj pritegne solze, a kot vsi vemo, v baseballu ni joka.


Willie From Ubogi Božiček

S količino pijače, od katere je Willie Ubogi Božiček res, vi & rsquod mislite, da bi se sčasoma naučil, kako se obvladati, vendar to ni le njegova pot. Namesto tega je slog Willie & rsquos pijača, dokler ni pripravljen pasti v nesvest ali se zmočiti. Medtem ko je večina zaupanja vrednih moških, ki sodelujejo v dolgi prevari, upodobljenih kot briljantni hitri govorci, je Billy Bob Thornton & rsquos lik tako sijajen, da mu to nasprotuje, a kljub temu uspe. Lahko preklinja otroke, se z upravniki trgovin pogovarja o svoji palici & ldquofuck & rdquo in nezakonito živi v hiši tujca & rsquos, vendar se zdi, da mu vse nekako gre po svoje & ndash in to & rsquos je tisto, kar je smešno. V vseh drugih okoliščinah bi Willieja videli kot tragično osebnost. Zdi se, da ima vsaj nekaj želje, da bi opustil svoje pijane poti, v svojem življenju ima ljudi, ki jim je res mar za njega in je pravzaprav precej spreten, vendar si lahko sam pomaga pri tem, da bi stopil na lastne noge. Uspelo je, da Willie uniči vse namige sočutja, ki jih lahko zbudiš, tako da se nenehno obnaša kot ratoborni kreten. On & rsquos je lik, ki ga absolutno radi sovražite, in ko zmaga na koncu, postane le toliko boljši.


Ben From Odhod iz Las Vegasa

Z vsem spoštovanjem do vseh ostalih na tem neredu na seznamu, so si ogledali preklete amaterje v primerjavi z Benom Sandersonom, razbitino vlaka z navedenim ciljem, da se ubije z alkoholom. Ko smo ga spoznali, je že izbral pijačo nad svojo družino, prijatelji in kariero. Ko nas zapusti, se je odločil za pijačo nad žensko, ki ga ima brezpogojno rada, hrano in življenje samo. Med potjo misliš, da bo morda le morda našel kaj boljšega, kot če bi švignil naravnost iz steklenice, vendar je njegova prioriteta hierarhija že vklesana v kamen. Če bi mu ponudili priložnost, da začne znova, da bi bil spet družabni pijanec, življenje scenarista zabave z oboževalci in ljubečo ženo, bi bilo zelo sporno, ali si ga bo sploh vzel. Prijatelji, to je alkoholik.

Morda ne pozna leve proti desni, a Derek Zoolander je več kot le res, res, smešno dobro videti: tudi on je res, res, smešno smešen - čeprav se tega zagotovo ne zaveda. Med bencinskimi boji in "eugoogalijami" mu uspe zbuniti osnovno množenje, se zaljubiti v (veliko pametnejšega) novinarja in uničiti zahrbtnega modnega muha.

In če iščete nekaj šal, ki bi si jih lahko povedali, je tukaj 75 šal, ki so tako slabe, da so pravzaprav smešne.

V zgodnjih šestih letih je bogata, sekač, blondinka, stara 20 let in čivava, omejena v torbici, z nevihto prevzela svet. Ne, ne govorimo o tem Paris Hilton govorimo o Elle Woods, hollywoodski fashionistki, ki je na Harvard Law vstopila z najmanj odvetniškim video esejem vseh časov. In če vas je navdihnila za samostojni študij, ste verjetno pripravljeni na 40 dejstev, ki ste se jih naučili v 20. stoletju in so danes popolnoma lažnivi.

Prav zares, Leslie Nielsen v šestdesetih in sedemdesetih letih se je uveljavil kot dramski igralec. Ampak enkrat Letalo leta 1980 se je Nielsenova zaloga spremenila čez noč. Zahvaljujoč vlogi, ki opredeljuje kariero, je Rumack, naravnost zdravnik, ki nehote napačno razlaga vsako vrstico, ki mu je izrečena ("Zagotovo ne moreš biti resen." Rumack: "Resna sem. In ne kliči me Shirley." ), Hollywoodski velikani so se zmehčali do človekovega prirojenega komičnega talenta. Vse povedano, Nielsen je v svoji karieri pobral skoraj 250 igralskih kreditov.

In za več smeha ne zamudite 40 dejstev, ki so tako smešna, da jim je težko verjeti.

The Austin Powers serija je napolnjena s čarobnostjo Mike Myers vloge - vključno seveda z obratom kot naslovni lik - vendar se nobena ne primerja z megalomanskim zablodom dr. Evila, ki ni preživel šest let na medicinski šoli Evil samo zato, da bi ga poimenovali "gospod". Torej, črpal za zdravnikov četrti izlet? To bo milijon dolarjev. Za več manjših zabav pa si oglejte katerega od 30 najbolj smešnih sitcomov vseh časov.

Duh je po mnogih merilih čuden film. (Spomnite se lončarskega prizora?) Toda sijoča ​​zvezda je Oda Mae Brown, ki v film, ki ga resno potrebuje, vnese bistveno lahkotnost. Pravzaprav, Whoopi Goldberg predstava v vlogi je bila tako velika, da je zanjo izbrala najboljšo stransko igralko Oscarja. Za bolj resno čuden kino si oglejte katerega od 30 najslabših filmskih koncev vseh časov.

Lisica 20. stoletja

Blizu začetka zelo Ocenjeno z R Deadpool, Wade Wilson sežge do trajne omamljenosti, nabode in pusti mrtvega. Kljub temu pa v preostalem delu filma, ne glede na to, ali slabega človeka spremeni v kebab ali se s slepim, geriatričnim sostanovalcem vrže nazaj, je skoraj vsaka vrstica iz ust Wilsona prepir ali enoplastnica. Če želite več informacij o Merc -u z usti, si oglejte katerega od (daleč krotiteljev) najbolj podcenjenih filmov Ryana Reynoldsa.

Na splošno je komedija verbalna umetnost, bolj kot kaj drugega o igri besed in tonski oddaji. Toda v nekaterih primerih je dobra komedija zgolj fizično dejanje. Jackie Chan vstopite kot Chon Wang Šanghajsko poldne in Shanghai Vitezi, je poln takšne fizične komedije-skorajda vsako minuto prikazanih borilnih veščin, pri katerih Wong izkorišča svoje okolje, da na vse bolj smešen način premaga nasprotnike. In za bolj čisto neumnost ne zamudite 50 punov, ki so tako slabe, da so pravzaprav smešne.

Tudi ko Regino George zadene avtobus (hej, Zlobna dekleta je zunaj že 14 let, kar pomeni, da je rok za reklamacije spojlerja od takrat potekel), smešno je. Po eni strani je to zato, ker se konča le z resno manjšimi poškodbami. Ampak to je tudi zahvaljujoč Rachel McAdams ' mojstrski obrat kot zloben, razvajen, klikerski kreten srednješolca. In za več zabavnih dejstev, tukaj je 20 znanih osebnosti, ki izgledajo kot njihovi hišni ljubljenčki.

V svoji slavni karieri je Eddie Murphy gledalce vedno znova podvojilo. (Trgovska mesta, kdo?) Toda ena od močnejših vlog, ki jih žgečkajo rebra, je kot družini prijazen Osel, ki v filmu za filmom dosledno-in smešno-poslabša svojega kolega Shreka.

Meryl Streep je morda ukradla zaslon s svojo ostro upodobitvijo Mirande Priestly leta Hudičevka v Pradi, a prirojen humor filma najbolje najdemo pri Emily Charlton, višji asistentki Priestly. Kot lahko potrdi vsak, ki se je ukvarjal z modo ali luksuznim založništvom, vrstice, kot so "Eden želodčne gripe sem oddaljen od ciljne teže" in smrtno resne "Ne morem zboleti, nosim Valentino, ker sem jokal na ves glas" "brez napora prečka mejo med preveč resničnim in preveč smešnim. In če trenutno umirate od smeha, tukaj je smešen videoposnetek David Harbourja, ki pleše s pingvini na Antarktiki.

V devetdesetih letih Chris Tucker, je s svojimi zlobnimi norcami in edinstvenim glasom (noben človek na planetu nima primerljivega tonskega razpona) utrdil svoj status nacionalnega zaklada. In medtem ko je zažgal zaslone Peti element in Prometna konica, njegov najboljši dosedanji lik je Smokey, ki je Tuckerju omogočil, da je pokazal umirjen, a popolnoma napet humor, ki ga občinstvo takrat ni videlo.

The izjemno vulgarni Walter v nekem trenutku iz invalidskega vozička izsili dvoličnega milijonarja. Običajno bi bilo to dejanje nezavedno. Ampak John Goodman prikazuje lik z aplombom, rezultat pa je temno komičen lik za več let.

Dejstvo: Melissa McCarthy je nacionalni zaklad. In čeprav je imela v zadnjem desetletju veliko nepozabnih vlog (Družice, kraja identitete, Vohun), na vrsto prihaja kot bostonska detektivka Shannon Mullins, ki piha alkoholne pijače, ždi žalitve in krši pravila.

Lahko popije količino viskija brez dna. Lahko se tušira, se obrije in obleče ob padcu klobuka. In lahko bere teleprompter kot nihče drug. Da, Ron Burgundija je morda malce satirična iteracija poročevalca o moških moških iz 70. let, vendar je tudi večdimenzionalen lik (ki ljubi svojega psa Baxterja do smrti) s sklopom talentov.

Od vseh Robin Williams nepozabni liki, gospa Doubtfire je morda najbolj slavna po njegovi smrti leta 2014 v hiši v San Franciscu, ki je služila za zunanje posnetke leta Gospa Doubtfire je de facto postal spomin na dragega igralca.

Približno leto po začetku druge svetovne vojne je Charlie Chaplin sprožil svoj magnum opus: ostra satira o diktatorju, ki je lačen oblasti, ki se je odločil iztrebiti Jude prek koncentracijskih taborišč. Chaplin igra diktatorja - in judovskega brivca, ki se predstavlja za diktatorja in s strastno izrečenim govorom o svobodi reši dan.

To je vprašanje, staro toliko kot čas (ali, um, 1994): Kdo je neumen in kdo bolj glup? Predpostavljamo, da je Lloyd božič, Jim Carreyja lik, fant, ki je pripravljen zamenjati popolnoma funkcionalen kombi za a moped, je bolj glup. In očitno tudi eden najbolj smešnih filmskih likov vseh časov.

Je na Beverly Hillsu slajša, lepša, kolcanjava, smešnejša bogata blondinka srednje šole kot Cher Horowitz? Kot da!

"Jaz sem nekdanji sostanovalec bratranec nečaka brata tvojega očeta." Ricka Moranisa Lord Dark Helmet je hkrati posmeh in praznovanje drugega močnega, temno oblečenega moškega: Darth Vader. Samo poglejte, kje Temna čelada zaduši ljudi. (To ni grlo.)

Povzetek: agent FBI se mora kot tekmovalec Miss Amerike skrivati, da bi preprečil teroristično zavero proti tekmovanju. Tudi z zgolj kompetentno igralko v glavni vlogi je bil takšen zaplet zagotovo razburljiv. Z Sandra Bullockpa je Gracie Hart postala domače ime, celo izborila je nominacijo za zlati globus za Bullocka.

Owen Wilson nedvomno ima nekaj stripov. (Indeed, he costars alongside many of the hilarious actors we've mentioned.) But his turn as Eli Cash, with all the zippy one-liners and fringe-tinged getups, takes the cake for sheer winking subtlety.

We vse cheered when Blutarsky smashed the guitar.

Here's one for your next round of trivia: In addition to blowing it out of the water with an equal parts sidesplitting and heart-wrenching performance, Kristen Wiig also cowrote the screenplay for Bridesmaids.

We all know Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. But what would it be like to be that guy's grandson? And what would happen if he inherited everything—the spooky mansion, the otherworldly experiments—overnight? If you're Gene Wilder, you'd shun the pedigree and insist that the surname is, actually, "Fronkensteen."

Yes, on its face, Wedding Crashers is nothing more than a comedy vehicle for Wilson and Vince Vaughan. But the true screen-stealer is Isla Fisher, who portrays a seemingly innocent, naive "stage five clinger" (Vaughan's words), before pulling off a slow reveal that she's no demure after all.

As the snobby villain in this golf comedy, Ted Knight had the best lines and the most memorable performance in this timeless classic. Yes, that's in a movie that also stars Chevy Chase, Bill Murray, in Rodney Dangerfield.

"I know who I am. I'm the dude playing the dude disguised as another dude." Robert Downey Jr.'s makeup, while inflammatory and controversial at first glance, served as a biting commentary on the Hollywood machine, and the degree to which actors will go to win golden trophies. In the film, Kirk Lazarus isn't done up in makeup it's a "pigmentation alteration" procedure. Method actors of the world, you've been one-upped.

Hilarious haikus, inventing the so-called "Skux life," unwittingly mispronouncing certain syllables in "caucasian," a fervent devotion to both the Terminator and Tupac—Ricky Baker is samo funny enough to charmingly counteract the weirdness in Hunt for the Wilderpeople. There's a good chance you may not have yet seen this film. Remedy that—immediately.

When it comes to Bill Murray's best and funniest movie characters, you may think of roles in Caddyshack, Groundhog Day, or any Wes Anderson film. But we posit that his Zombieland cameo, in all its brevity, is his strongest, if only for how convincible it is: Bill Murray dressing up like a zombie to stay hidden from zombies is astonishingly in character with a bunch of his other hilarious, IRL hijinks.

Animals Names Beginning with "D"

There are many animals, both real and imaginary, that have names beginning with the letter "D." Animals are always a fun choice, and there are many ways that you can make it work. You can go over-the-top and wear a full-body jumpsuit and mascot head, or wear your own plain-coloured clothes with a face bob or mask. Pair a face bob with a grey top and trousers, and you&aposve become an ass! Oops, meant to say donkey (wink).

Here are some animals that have names beginning with the letter "D."

  • Donkey
  • Dormouse
  • Dodo
  • Dolphin
  • Dog
  • Dalmatian
  • Dinosaur
  • Duck


This looks right except her pants are pulled up too high.

Kate started her Instagram account in June 2019 and now it boasts over 214k followers. The fashion expert said that she still can&rsquot believe she has so many fans.

Kate told us that she has a pretty big closet: "A huge one I customized to my needs from Ikea, the PAX wardrobes. I have a lot of clothes so I don&rsquot necessarily need new pieces to make character-inspired outfits. When I need a certain specific piece for a look I usually pick something from Dollskill or one of the brands that sponsors me. I don&rsquot spend money on clothes anymore. I get them all through collabs."

We wanted to find out if the fashionista had any advice for women on how to dress this summer. "Well, let&rsquos hope the quarantine will be over by summer. My advice? Dress however you&rsquod like, not how others tell you to dress. In this world, being unique is admirable and there are always gonna be people who like your style and relate with it. Fashion and dressing up is a kind of art. Hence, all artists have a different style."


The Concept: Jack-o'-Santa : Tim Burton’s new movie for Disney isn’t exactly a steal-Christmas-kind-of-thing. It’s more like a borrow-it-and-give-it-a-weird-twist-kind-of-thing

“Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas” is different from the Walt Disney Studios’ previous animated movies in just about every way. Where they were cute, “Nightmare” owes its arty pizazz more to German Expressionism than to Mickey Mouse. Where they dazzled the eye with color, “Nightmare’s” subdued palette showcases texture and depth. Where they featured Broadway-style show tunes, “Nightmare” has a musical score that’s more “Three Penny Opera” than “Zip-a-Dee Doo-Dah.” Where their humor was ingenuous and their protagonists warm and cuddly, “Nightmare” has an off-center, adult wit and some truly grotesque creations.

The film’s most important difference is the animation itself. “Nightmare” is not a cartoon. Instead of drawings, its characters are three-dimensional articulated figures that move and emote like live actors, thanks to a process called stop-motion animation. Stop-motion is best known from commercials--think Speedy Alka Seltzer or the Pillsbury Doughboy and you’ve got the idea.

But the level of stop-motion animation in the 72-minute “Nightmare” has never been attempted before. Only George Pal, a stop-motion pioneer who produced a series of shorts called “Puppetoons” for Paramount in the late ‘40s, came close in terms of innovation. Pal’s technique of substituting different faces and limbs on characters in each frame of film to give them more streamlined movement has been borrowed and expanded upon by the “Nightmare” crew.

Burton, the creator and producer of the movie, talked about it early one morning on the set of his latest picture, “The Ed Wood Story.”

What possessed the studio to take such a leap of faith on “Nightmare Before Christmas”? The answer slouches--rumpled, yawning, trying to wake up--on a couch in the director’s trailer. With his unruly mop of black hair, wrinkled clothes and long striped Pippi Longstocking socks, Burton looks like an overgrown illustration from a children’s book. Who better to lead Disney into a different style of animation?

In fact, “Nightmare Before Christmas” began at the studio more than 10 years ago, long before Burton became the director of such box-office bonanzas as “Beetlejuice,” “Batman,” “Edward Scissorhands” and “Batman Returns.” At that time, he was still toiling as an apprentice in Disney’s animation department and had just made his first film, a six-minute short about a 7-year-old who reads Edgar Allen Poe and wants to be Vincent Price. “Vincent,” one of Burton’s most personal films, used stop-motion animation, and it inspired the filmmaker to write and design a more ambitious story.

For Burton, who had been a lonely child growing up in Burbank, holidays were a time of wonder and escape. “Anytime there was Christmas or Halloween, you’d go to Thrifty’s and buy stuff and it was great,” he recalls. “It gave you some sort of texture all of a sudden that wasn’t there before.”

With his favorite children’s TV special, “Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer” (also made with crude stop-motion techniques), and other holiday literature in mind, Burton wrote and drew illustrations for his own rhyming television classic. Stimulated by Clement Clarke Moore’s traditional holiday poem, he added a twist: this time, “Twas the night mare before Christmas. . . .”

Although as a movie it has been embellished--it is now a musical, with a lush score by Danny Elfman, the Oingo Boingo musician who has created music for Burton’s five previous films, and a script by Carolyn Thompson, who wrote “Edward Scissorhands"--the basic story is still much the same as Burton’s original tale.

In a world where all the holidays have their own kingdoms, the elegantly tall king of Halloween Jack Skellington is a tormented artist who is bored with putting on the same old holiday each year. One day, Jack stumbles into Christmastown and is captivated by the bright colors and happiness of the place. He rushes back to tell the ghoulish citizens of Halloweentown that they will produce Christmas this year. They’re excited by the idea but a little unclear on the concept, and of course they get it all wrong. Pandemonium ensues after Santa Claus is kidnaped and little children all over the world wake up to find nasty presents, gleefully created by the Halloweenies, under their Christmas trees.

Elfman voiced all the parts as he wrote the music, and in the process, became so fond of Jack Skellington that he remains his singing voice in the film. (Actor Chris Sarandon does Jack’s speaking voice.) Catherine O’Hara, who had worked with Burton on “Beetlejuice,” did the voice of Sally, Jack’s rag-doll girlfriend. William Hickey (“Prizzi’s Honor”) was cast as the voice of Sally’s creator, a mad scientist. Two other voices, a two-faced mayor and a naughty trick-or-treater, were supplied by past Burton collaborators Glenn Shadix (“Beetlejuice”) and Paul Reubens (better known as Pee-wee Herman).

“I find the mix of Halloween and Christmas beautiful, and I just liked the idea where it’s like a reversed ‘Grinch’ character. Where Jack’s not a bad character,” Burton says, referring to another influence, Dr. Seuss’ “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas.” “I like that kind of character that’s passionate but doesn’t know what he’s doing. I think it’s a reaction against the kind of society you grow up with, where people don’t feel a lot or go out on a limb a lot and just kind of remain in the shadows and judge others. What’s nice about these characters is they just get swept up into something, even if they don’t know what they’re doing.

“This was written right around the time I did ‘Vincent,’ and I thought it would be nice to do it stop-motion. . . . I think at the time I was trying to do anything. Maybe get Vincent Price to narrate it, maybe like a 20-minute film. I went around to the networks and pitched it as a half-hour special--Home Shopping Network, anything. I just wanted to make it.”

But the project didn’t get off the ground until about three years ago, when Burton quietly made some inquiries about the story and found out that Disney owned it. Alerted to what it had, the studio jumped at the chance to produce it. But there were lingering doubts on Burton’s part. There was the question of his other commitments--among other things, he was working on “Batman Returns,” which didn’t allow him the three years needed to direct a stop-motion feature. And he worried that Disney wouldn’t give the film the creative freedom Burton demanded.

The dilemma was solved by Henry Selick, an animator and former colleague of Burton at Disney, who signed on as the film’s director. Like Burton, Selick had been something of an outsider at Disney and had left in the early ‘80s to pursue his own projects in San Francisco. While Burton became famous in Hollywood, Selick navigated the byways of the Bay Area’s special-effects community, directing “Doughboy” commercials, some animated MTV channel-ID spots and contributions to the channel’s “Liquid TV,” among them an award-winning stop-motion short called “Slow Bob in the Lower Dimensions.” Selick and Burton were reunited through their mutual friend Rick Heinrichs, “Nightmare’s” visual consultant, who had sculpted Burton’s first designs for the film.

In essence, Selick created a complete highly specialized studio in San Francisco for the movie. The city was chosen for production, he says, because “I was here and a lot of the animators come from here. George Lucas had Industrial Light & Magic, and a lot of stop-motion professionals were up here because of that--like Tom St. Amand, who makes the little metal armatures, the ‘bones’ for all the characters. You can’t underestimate the skill that guy has. It makes our characters move fluidly and able to hold fantastic poses.

“The other side of it was that it was important to me to stay away from Los Angeles,” Selick said. “I think that if Disney and even Tim had too much access to us, they would have gotten too nervous and gummed up the works.”

Over the past three years, Skellington Productions, situated in a 40,000-square-foot former studio space, has been a kind of parallel universe for the 120 employees who have spent most of their waking hours putting Burton’s vision on film. Its otherworldly air begins with the sidewalk outside, where the late Herve Villechaize’s handprints are embedded, for some reason, in the sidewalk.

The mostly youthful crew of men and women within the cavernous space--animators, puppet and prop-makers, set builders, art directors, camera operators, lighting designers, editors--all have one thing in common: a ghostly pallor induced by too many hours indoors. And unlike most movie sets, this one is unsettlingly quiet. It is dark around the actual stages (there are 20 of them, each like a miniature version of a typical Hollywood sound stage) with long black curtains enclosing each set.

Stop-motion is a time-consuming process that requires the animators to move their characters (usually called puppets) one frame of film at a time. It takes several days to do what might be a couple of seconds on film. Fourteen of the top stop-motion animators in the world, working simultaneously on all of the sets, manage to complete about 70 seconds of film a week.

With his phosphorescent skin, black clothing and rats-nest hair dyed candy-apple red, Paul Barry is a fairly typical “Nightmare” crew member in both looks and talent. A stop-motion animator who was nominated for an Academy Award this year for his own short film, “Sandman,” Barry is animating a scene in which Jack tries to explain Christmas to Halloweentown. “The film’s definitely been cast in terms of each animator has a particular character they work with,” he says. “There’s some major acting involved in my scene--singing, dancing, jumping around--trying to make Christmas sound so exciting.”

Even a short scene can take a week to do because the animators start from scratch, with only the character’s prerecorded voice and the storyboard drawings. “It might be a really simple shot where Jack picks up a square present with a bow on top and he says, ‘This is a thing called a present, it all comes wrapped up in a box . . .’ and it’s five seconds long,” Barry explains. “But there are so many ways you can pick a present up. Do you do it with both hands, or one hand and then describe it with the other? The cameraman will be involved as to what kind of shot it’s going to be, whether it’s a close-up or a wide shot. Do we tilt down on him when he bends over? All these things happen during the shot.”

Once the animator has figured out his puppet’s performance, he auditions it for Selick, who directs both the action and the cinematography much as he would on a live-action film. The sequence is then shot in trial runs at several frames a second, and “loops” are made of the film so that the bit can be viewed over and over and the bugs worked out before the final shot is done in one take.

On another Halloweentown set, animator Justin Kohn is preparing a scene in which a vampire is about to make a point by pulling one of his eyes out of his head. (The scene was the most popular in the movie among a class of fifth graders who saw the storyboards.) As Kohn and cameraman David Hanks work, it’s almost impossible to see anything actually happen.

In order to do this kind of animation, Kohn explains, “you have to be able to just touch the puppet and move it a small amount you can’t even see--that a gauge wouldn’t even see.”

A 10-foot-tall metal apparatus called a motion-control device surrounds the cameras on most of the sets. Although the technology was popularized by “Star Wars,” it is being used in new ways for this film, in combination with computers that allow technicians to lock in camera movements in advance. So instead of the static fixed cameras of traditional stop-motion pieces where the puppets did all the moving, “Nightmare’s” cameras soar.

A stop-motion wizard who made his own “King Kong” at the age of 10, director of photography Pete Kozachik invented and made much of the equipment used to film “Nightmare.” After cornering the market on old Mitchell Standard cameras he designed mounts and computer hookups that would allow the technicians to film without disturbing the animators.

“Stop-motion has traditionally put the camera far from the puppet so there’s plenty of room and the puppet doesn’t have to be conscious of hitting marks. We did just the opposite thing. That’s a dramatic tool that the live-action crowd gets to use and we wanted it. Had to have it. Kind of jealous in a way,” he said, deadpan.

Though gruesome--there’s a happy family of corpses and a pleasant zombie who walks around with an ax in his skull--the puppets themselves are quite delicate in their construction. At almost 10 inches of articulated steel covered with foam and cloth, Jack pushes the envelope for thinness with his Fred Astaire-style grace. The villain, Oogie Boogie, on the other hand, is literally a sackful of mechanical insects who does a Cab Calloway-like dance in his black-lit inner sanctum. Jack has 400 different heads that are replaced each time he changes expression, but Oogie’s innards required 3,000 different mechanical bugs.

“I’d get shocked every week when the film would be sent to me. It would be like a burst of energy because it was so beautiful,” Burton says. “The animators did a brilliant job of taking a lot of hardships that people don’t understand in doing this kind of work. Besides the movements, the puppets’ designs are such"--he giggles, thinking about this--"that the characters don’t have eyeballs and most of the things that people traditionally use in animation to convey emotion. We’ve either decided to sew their eyes shut or remove them.”

Some are concerned parents will think the film is too scary for their young children. “I have a real thing about that,” Burton complains. “Maybe I was different from other kids, but I don’t think so. Like from day one, I was never scared of monster movies. People forget that kids are intelligent. The other thing is that (“Nightmare”) isn’t really scary, and thematically, this story is about perception. These characters are not bad at heart, they just look a certain way and things shouldn’t be judged by the way they look. That’s something I’ve resisted all my life.”

David Hoberman, the president of Disney’s Touchstone Pictures division, calls the story “heartfelt.” But even he seems unsure about who, exactly, the film’s audience will be. “I’m hoping, and I think we’re going after that sort of 15-to-25 age group and then also a more sophisticated kind of upscale group,” he says. “But I think it’ll go down well below that, frankly. We’ve had screenings for everybody, and at a certain point--age 4, 5 and 6--some kids have been scared and yet some of them have loved it. (The audience has) been very difficult to ascertain.”

However it turns out at the box office, making the movie has been anything but a nightmare for Burton. “I was really glad it wasn’t made 10 years ago because I don’t think it would have been done that well. . . . Animation’s pretty specialized as it is, but this is even more so because it’s kind of a lost art, in a way. There are not that many people to do it, and there’s not that many good people who do it. So the timing was just right.

“It’s so weird in Hollywood,” Burton notes. “There’s always this gray area I can’t predict. What’s weird is that people think if you’re lucky enough to be successful that you can predict what’s successful. And the thing is, any movie I’ve ever worked on could have been the biggest bomb and up until the day it opens, you never know."*


Unforgiven (1992)

If you look at this list, there’s a big gap between Butch Cassidy in Unforgiven. And that’s not a mistake, as the American western experienced somewhat of a drought in the 70s and 80s. But then Unforgiven came along and reinvigorated the genre. Clint Eastwood returned to the wild west as the star and director of the film, which he dedicated to Sergio Leone and Don Siegel, who he considered mentors who helped catapult his career. Unforgiven is a classic story for modern times, a tale that, like many other westerns, obscures the oftentimes thin line between justice and revenge. It was a seamless transition for Eastwood to dive head first back into the genre, and it paid off when he picked up Oscars for best picture and best director that year.


All 23 Pixar Movies, Ranked From Worst to Best

There are so many Pixar movies to choose from, but after reading our list, you'll know which ones to watch first.

Let's start with this premise: All Pixar movies are good. It's nearly impossible to find a studio with as good of a track record: Pixar has put out 23 feature-length movies since 1995, and none of them are total duds &mdash each one has something to recommend, be it a technical achievement, an emotional ride or unforgettable characters. But that doesn't mean they're all created equal. Some dazzle with state-of-the-art visuals, others get the tears flowing and many of them make you feel good with tales of unlikely friendships. Here's where all 23 Pixar feature films currently stand. (Disagree? Put your own ranking in the comments!)

If you have any gaps in your Pixar viewing, there&rsquos never been a better time to catch up (or rewatch to see if you can spot all those Pixar Easter eggs!). For one thing, all of the movies are widely available on streaming services. (Compare that to the longstanding Disney practice of &ldquothe vault,&rdquo where they took movies out of home-video circulation to increase demand for the VHS tapes and DVD/Blu-rays when they did become available.) But fans might wonder if all of the Pixar movies are available on the Disney+ streaming service. The answer is yes &mdash finally! When the service launched, there were still a couple of Pixar movies not on Disney+, either because they were too new or because they were finishing up streaming contracts elsewhere. Since July 2020, the last of the Pixar movies &mdash Incredibles 2 &mdash ported over from Netflix to Disney+. And Pixar's newest film, Soul, released on Christmas Day 2020, is only available on the streaming service. Only time will tell if that will be the case for Luca, the studio's planned kids' movie for 2021.

The fact that Lightning McQueen wrestles with aging in this movie &mdash and is teamed up with a younger, charismatic screen partner (with the voice of Cristela Alonzo) &mdash gives this something for the adults to latch onto, but there are still a lot of animated cars zooming around to sit through.

While the more cartoonish designs of Arlo, the apatosaurus star of this movie, and his human cave-boy friend are entertaining to watch, the tale &mdash which covers young Arlo trying to reunite with a lost family &mdash feels overly familiar.

Dory trying to find her family &mdash despite her memory loss &mdash is a true story of triumph over adversity. But, to do so, she has to travel through a lot of aquarium tanks. We love these familiar characters, but the plot gets a little bit repetitive.

In this Cars sequel, there's a lot of focus on Lightning McQueen's buddy Mater, who is sent on a spy mission. Your mileage my vary depending on how entertaining you think Mater is, but a little Mater goes a long way.

Mike Wazowski heads to college hoping to be a champion scarer, only to find that he's not as good at is as he thought. That's a tough lesson for a kids' movie &mdash that you're not going to be good at everything, no matter how hard you try or practice &mdash but thankfully there are enough Animal House-style antics (this time from monsters!) to soften the blow.

Pixar's second feature film gets ground-level and follows a young, awkward ant, Flik, as he gets himself into all kinds of trouble. In an unlikely series of events, Flik calls on the help of a bug circus to help defend fellow ants from an evil grasshopper, if you've seen Seven Samurai (or, you know, The Three Amigos, oz Galaxy Quest), you can see where the movie is headed long before the climax.

It's crazy how often mothers are absent (or dead) in kids' movies (think Bambi, Nemo, Cinderella). Finally, there's an adventure movie about mothers and daughters, starring a princess with a rebellious spirit (and hair that's basically a character of its own). It's a shame the mom spends so much time transformed into a bear!

Onward has to juggle a lot of elements &mdash there's an epic quest, a world where the fantastical and the mundane blend into each other, a story about two brothers and the loss of their father &mdash and, at times, it feels like the balance is off. But the action is great, and the heartwarming parts really land their emotional gut-punch.

Ka-chow! Cars may be about Lightning McQueen, the fastest racer around, but the story really gets going when he heads to Radiator Springs and things slow down a little. There, McQueen gets a lesson in appreciating the little things &mdash a reminder we can all use every now and again.

This may be Pixar's most gorgeous film to date, and there's a fun, body-switching adventure to go along with it. But there's also a lot of introspection about the difference between your life's passion versus your life's purposes, and kids (and adults) may find that a bit hard to relate to and heavy to wade through.

The fourth installment in the Toy Story franchise introduces a bunch of new characters &mdash Forky, Gabby Gabby, and Ducky and Bunny &mdash and gives them meaty plotlines. But it also answers a question that was already very elegantly answered in Toy Story 3, about what toys do when it's time to move on.

Finding Nemo proves the lengths a father would go (well, swim) for his son. In this case, he also meets some fantastic friends, like the forgetful Dory or chill turtles Crush and Squirt, along the way. It's these characters, rather than the run-of-the-mill plot, that give Nemo its charm.

Pixar has a knack for pulling off the unexpected. V Monsters, Inc., it sets up a backwards world where monsters are believably scared of kids &mdash in it makes a movie about office politicking that isn't boring. (Lots of adult movies can't pull that second thing off.)

Toy Story started it all way back in 1995, and showed the world that a completely computer-animated feature film was a viable prospect. But, re-watching it now, you can see just how far the technology has come, and the animation here looks much rougher.

Just like Incredibles 2, this movie has a ton of exciting superhero action that sees the man characters lift, stretch, disappear, and run their way to victory. But they also have to learn to work together as a team, which is something all families can relate to at one point or another.

The third film in the Toy Story franchise examines what happens when people outgrow their old toys, which requires about 10,000 tissues each re-watch.

A cowboy and a space man, a rat and a chef, a girl and a monster &mdash Pixar always does great work when it comes to unlikely pairings. V Up's case, a cranky old man, an earnest young scout, and an overeager dog head off on a gorgeous, globe-trotting journey and wind up being just the trio needed to defeat some unwitting foes.

There's nothing more complex than the emotions of a pre-teen, but Pixar not only treats this subject with empathy, it creates entertaining (and moving) story about the feelings in control of a whole world inside a young girl's mind.

There's plenty to laugh about when a starry-eyed rat teams up with a hapless chef to get cooking in the kitchen, as Remy and Luigi do in Ratatouille. But there's also a heartwarming lesson tucked in there about how greatness can come from even the most unexpected places.

IMO, Toy Story 2 is the pinnacle of the franchise. With the character dynamics already established, this film can hit the ground running, sending the toys on a mission that's remarkably poignant (Jessie's "When She Loved Me," sob) and hilariously gag-filled (Buzz and Zurg do their own Star Wars reveal).

It'd be easy for a movie about a young boy traveling through the Land of the Dead to turn maudlin, but, in Pixar's hands, Coco remains uplifting &mdash and the candy-colored underworld is a treat for the eyes.

Director Brad Bird has such a facility with action sequences, he finds delightful ways to mix up all the different superpowers of all the heroes in this movie. But the family story at the center ensures that there's heart behind all the mayhem.

Wall-E is a truly impressive feat, because you feel for the lonely little robot on his Earth cleanup mission from the very beginning &mdash which is mostly wordless, so even really little kids can understand his plight. The movie builds from there, sending Wall-E into space, where he gets to be a brave little hero. (Plus, its message of eco-friendliness couldn't be more prescient.)


26 TV Stars Who Look Nothing Like Their Characters

One of the coolest things about Hollywood has to be the makeup and wardrobe geniuses who work hard behind the scenes to transform an actor into their character. These beauty and style gurus can take someone famous and make them look completely different than they do on the red carpet, and it's pretty incredible to see. In fact, the celeb transformation is sometimes so good that you might even find it hard to believe that the character and the celebrity are the same person. Here are some of the most intense examples out there of TV transformations and stars who look nothing like their infamous characters.

The world of American Horror Story is no stranger to bizarre and extravagant makeup effects. In season 6, American Horror Story: Roanoke, Lady Gaga portrayed Scathach, a bloodthirsty witch from the 15th century. The character was exiled from her own village and was forced to live in the woods, hence her disheveled appearance. The character's ragged look is a far cry from Gaga's glamorous and over-the-top red carpet attire.

V Schitt's Creek, Moira Rose is an over-the-top, ex-soap star. She has a taste for the finer things in life and appears to have a different wig for every day of the week. But Catherine O'Hara, the comedy legend who plays the Rose family matriarch, is much more subtle in her real-life appearance than her television counterpart.

The Hollywood starlet has been in the spotlight since she was a teenager, so it's wild to see the actress aged several decades for the present-day scenes in This Is Us. In reality, Moore is in her 30's, but through the use of incredible makeup effects, the show manages to successfully age her character as the Pearson family matriarch by several decades.

In the case of Hulu's limited series, The Act, stars Patricia Arquette and Joey King had the heavy task of playing real people. For her role as the overprotective mother, Dee Dee Blanchard, Arquette had to trade in her signature blonde locks in exchange for a brunette hairdo. The transformation paid off as Arquette won an Emmy for her portrayal of the character.

The Walking Dead is one of the highest-rated shows in cable history, so it's no surprise that the zombified makeup effects are top-notch. But even some of the living characters within the show's universe get a taste of gnarly side. For example, the character of Dwight dons a nasty burn that covers the entire left side of his face. In real-life, Austin Amelio, the actor who plays Dwight, is quite handsome, and although his long blonde hair might be real, the burnt face makeup effects are merely a touch of Hollywood magic.

British actress Phyllis Logan looks almost nothing like her character, Mrs. Hughes, on Downton Abbey. Mrs. Hughes tends to be more straight-laced, tidy, and looks super conservative, while Logan always looks trendy and fresh on the red carpet&mdashand she looks a lot younger than Mrs. Hughes, too!

V Modern Family, Alex Dunphy is known as the super-smart, kind of nerdy, awkward, and shy sister&mdashespecially when compared to her older sister, Haley. But Ariel Winter, who plays Alex very well, seems to almost be the exact opposite in real life (at least according to her social media pages). In fact, it seems like Winter is more like Haley Dunphy than Alex! Without the glasses and the casual clothing, Winter looks like a different person.

You wouldn't even know that Ewan McGregor plays Emmit Stussy in Fargo if you didn't read the credits. That's how different the character and the actor really look. McGregor must spend quite a bit of time in the makeup chair before going on screen as Emmit. In real life, the actor looks younger and has a considerably better hairline.

Naomi Grossman does an incredible job playing Pepper, a woman with microcephaly, on American Horror Story. Grossman, who does not have this medical condition in reality, is another celebrity who must spend hours in the makeup chair to achieve this look.

V Orange Is The New Black, Uzo Aduba plays Suzanne Warren, better known as "Crazy Eyes" to many of the women in the prison. In the show, Crazy Eyes is always in a neutral prison jumpsuit and is known for her super wide-eyed look. Aduba is the total opposite on the red carpet&mdashsleek, stylish and composed.

When Matthew McConaughey played Rust Cohle in True Detective, he looked nearly unrecognizable thanks to his straggly long hair, weird handle bar mustache, and dead, unhappy eyes. While McConaguhey has had his fair share of interesting hair moments, he usually looks a whole lot more put together (and happier!) in reality.

Claire Foy pulled off playing a young Queen Elizabeth in The Crown so well that it was almost hard to imagine her looking any other way. In real life, Foy has darker hair and her style isn't nearly as old-fashioned as her character's. Actually, she doesn't really look like Queen Elizabeth on the red carpet at all!

V Igra prestolov, Daenerys Targaryen is well-known for her long, white-blonde hair that brands her as a typical member of the Targaryen family. She's also known for her intricate braids and her warrior outfits. Emilia Clarke, the actress who plays her, has much shorter and darker hair that couldn't be more different&mdashand she also has a completely opposite personality, trading Daenerys' steely disposition for her bubbly demeanor, always with a smile on her face.

As Blair Waldorf's maid/assistant (and also maybe her closest and only true friend) on Gossip Girl, Dorota always looked exactly the same: hair pulled tightly back in a black and white outfit. But in real life, Zuzanna Szadkowski looks much more laid-back, stylish, and radiant.

Most of the celebrities who appear in The Handmaid's Tale look quite different than they do in real life, but that's especially true when it comes to Madeline Brewer, the actress who plays Janine Ofwarren. Janine only has one eye due to a dispute in season 1, and she hides herself behind the red robes and large white hats the handmaids have to wear. Brewer, on the other hand, is your typical glamorous Hollywood actress.

Looking at Conleth Hill, you might think he seems vaguely familiar. and then you'd probably be pretty shocked to find out he plays Lord Varys on Igra prestolov. Varys was reguarly on screen with a completely bald head, black robes, and a very serious expression. Hill, on the other hand, seems more animated (and less plotting) and has much more hair.

Vklopljeno Downton Abbey, Daisy Mason plays a maid/housekeeper who looks a lot more dowdy and unkempt than the actress who plays her. It's not surprising that Sophie McShera looks so different, considering the show is basically a period piece, but it's still interesting to see how opposite the actress seems from her character.

Orange Is The New Black is another show that features a lot of characters who look almost nothing like the celebrities who play them. Another one who particularly stands out is Tiffany Doggett, better known as Pennsatucky to the other inmates. Pennsatucky has only a few yellowed teeth and messy hair, while the actress who plays her, Taryn Manning, is a lot more put together, and usually rocks a platinum blonde look.

Vklopljeno Igra prestolov, The Hound is known for being, in many of the character's words, extremely ugly. The same cannot be said for Rory McCann, the actor who plays him. This is another actor who definitely spent an extraordinarily long time in the makeup chair for filming&mdashhis character had some gnarly scars.

Many of the Igra prestolov characters look different than the stars who play them, but aside from Daenerys and The Hound, Cersei Lannister is another one who especially stands out. Lena Headey, the actress who plays Cersei, has dark hair and a friendly face in real life that makes her look completely different from her smirking blonde character.

V Big Bang Theory, Johnny Galecki is known as another science nerd, with thick glasses and zero facial hair. In reality, the actor who plays him, Leonard Hofstadter, is often rocking a beard, and looks especially unrecognizable without his own pair of specs.

Who could forget Barb Holland from Čudnejše stvari season one? The character was known for being one of the more nerdy girls in school, with large glasses and hair that gave off an extremely '80s vibe. The actress who plays her, Shannon Purser, is decidedly more chic and stylish.

Arrested Development's Kitty Sanchez is known for being a slightly crazed woman with out-of-control curls and a ridiculously dramatic cross-eyed look without her glasses. The actress behind her, Judy Greer, couldn't be more different.

Another Čudnejše stvari character who looks quite different than the celebrity playing her is Eleven, especially from season one. In the beginning, when Eleven had a shaved head, she looked unrecognizable from Millie Bobby Brown. Even in season three, with a messy short bob, Eleven could still be a completely different person than Brown, who is known for being fashion-forward.

V Breaking Bad, Bryan Cranston plays Walter White, a science teacher who becomes an unlikely criminal. With his shaved head, thick facial hair, and infamous glasses, Walter White looks totally different than Cranston.

America Ferrera and her character Betty Suarez from Ugly Betty might share long dark hair, but that's pretty much the extent of it. While Betty is always seen in braces and red glasses, Ferrera is more glamorous, mature and put-together in the public eye.
