. . . unless round is funny . . . .

15 Movies, in 28 years. . .
Lots of ground to cover, so many vivid moments on film.
Discuss all you like (or dislike,) and vote only once per day for one movie (no down-votes, only up!)

Aw, fug it, let's go polling. . . . .

For years 'Raising Arizona' was my favorite movie. It was locked in at No.1. It kinda moves around in my top 5 nowadays, but never lower than No.5. 'Fargo' sneaks into the top 5 on occasion, so on any given day I might have two Coen flicks in my top 5.

Only two other movies are locks in my top 5, being 'Jaws' and 'The Warriors'.

T. S., you're young and you got your health, what you want with a job?

Evelle Snoats has some of the best lines. And best line-deliveries:
"No, ma'am. We released ourselves on our own recognizance."

It's a shame William Forsythe never got to be in any other Coen films. He played so well off brother Gale (John Goodman.)

"Mighty fine cereal flakes, Mrs. McDonough."

Evelle: "I got me some baby grub, baby wipes, diapers, them disposable kind. I also got a package of balloons."
Gale: "They blow up into funny shapes and all?"
Evelle: "No, just circular."

Oz le Fou says:
H.I: "This is Gale and Evelle Snoats. As fine a pair as ever... broke and entered!"

Evelle and Gale are truly the icing on the cake, aren't they.

"What Evelle here is trying to say is that we felt that the institution no longer had anything to offer us."

Also one of the most memorable dual screaming scenes ever. Their love for little Jr always brings a smile.

Evelle: Promise we ain't never gonna leave him again, Gale. Promise me we ain't never gonna give him up.
Gale: We ain't never gonna give him up again, Evelle. He's our little Gale Jr. now.

It's like Laurel & Hardy gone criminal, in the middle of a Preston Sturges movie.
Yes, 'Raising Arizona' rocks, so much to love and rediscover in it.

Don't you love the way John Turturro says :

''The Preacher said it *absolved us.*''

Tim Blake Nelson was a revelation. Why haven't we seen more from him!?
And anyone who says Clooney can't act... begin the egg-on-face lesson here.

Oz le Fou says:
Oh yeah, Clooney NAILS it. I've always thought Clooney was good though, going back to the ER days. I remember reading how the whole cast was in awe of his talent, not only the actual acting, but that he was a one take guy, never needing two takes. A pro.

Tim Blake Nelson hasn't matched this role yet, has he. He will. Another role of his that I really liked was his role in Mike White's 'The Good Girl'. After O Brother and Good Girl I thought he'd keep rolling out the roles, but he kinda dried up a little.

You know, I reckon Turturro almost steals the show. Such simmering anger, that underlying danger. Brilliantly done (as usual).
