See, Woody Allen directed a movie called Manhattan Murder Mystery, but I’m trying to figure out what to talk to him about. It’s a “mystery” what “words” I should use. It’s a “worder mystery” in Manhattan. Get it?
Here’s what you do:
Make someone talk about symbolism in his movies.
Say “Well I happen to have Woody Allen right here!”
Yes, yes. Annie Hall is probably my favorite movie. And do you really have to pontificate so loudly?
If I remember the story correctly, Soon Yee was Mia Farrow’s adopted daughter, not Woody Allen’s. He and Farrow were on the skids during most of Soon Yee’s childhood, and he barely interacted with her past being a visiting friend of her adoptive mother’s. Yet, when Farrow found out that Allen and Soon Yee were seeing each other after the adopted daughter was a legal adult, Farrow beat Soon Yee with a chair.
And Allen’s the bad guy.
Am I stupid for not knowing who Woody Allen is?
Either way… I gotta get myself an ick-odometer.
Gee, this is doing wonders for me on the trip to New York I’m going to have to take this year for my uncle’s wedding. I may be from the state of New York, but I’m still judgmentally paranoid about that whole crime thing. = P And I don’t even know who Woody Allen is because he’s not an animated character, but it’s still funny.
I suggest that movie for all those ‘who is woody?’-persons.
Then you can talk with him and you know the truth about evil vegetables und healthy cake – and because it’s a scifi comedy it is very nerd/geek/not-educated-in-a-strange-way-to-understand-real-woody-allen-movies friendly.
I was thinking of Sleeper as well. Take the Money and Run and What’s Up Tiger Lily were fun too. I think he felt guilty about that last one.
You should take his glasses first so he can’t pick you out of a line up.
The bugification of Woody Allen is just brilliant!
Well, I’m old, so I obviously know who Woody Allen is. I have yet to see one of his movies that made me laugh, however. I think they all suck. Just like Stephen King, I have no idea how Woody Allen is famous.
And yes, the whole “sleeping-with-his-adoptive-daughter” thing rates really really high on an Ick-odometer.
But like I said, I’m old, so by my very essence I’m crochety and grumpy and grouchy. Get offa my lawn!
Hey, I’m not old and I know who Woody Allen is. Don’t like the few movies I’ve seen, but whatever. Dylan attended my school (K-12 girls school, and I was in the high school at the time) just before the whole mess – they pulled her out quickly.
And Stephen King is fantastic! You just don’t have the right imagination. Oops! There goes my foot on your lawn!
*tap dances on your lawn like Jim Carey* Take THAT! Stephen King is awesome!
Tell him you loved him in Toy Story.
And I think you mean ick-ometer. An ick-odometer would be for something like accumulating ick mileage.
And here I was thinking I was the only one thinking it should be ick-ometer… and for the same reason.
Agreed. Ick-ometer makes more sense.
I don’t know– I think “sleeping with the girlfriend’s adopted daughter” racks up some ick mileage.
I thought about an “ick-ometer,” but when I think about redlining a needle, I think of odometers. But you’re right, “ick-ometer” is more apt. I went ahead and changed it.
Oh man, I really want to see Woody Allen’s Krull!
You could get Diane Keaton as the evil monster.
Woody was also great in Antz…! So yes, he IS an animated character.
I was very disappointed when I picked up a box set of Liam Neeson’s Greatest Movies and Krull WASN’T on there. Mallarcky
I knew I’d be opening a whole “thing” with the Stephen King comment. But I just find his books boring (with the exceptions of Thinner, The Green Mile, and of course The Shawshank Redemption) and not scary AT ALL. Maybe I’ve read the wrong ones.
I stand by my comment.
After reading and watching “The Mist” and “Dream Catcher” I wrote a Dear John letter to Stephen King breaking up with him. I just can’t stand to be hurt and let down like that again. I kept thinking he might change and things could work out but I knew I was only making excuses. Alright, now I sound like Delorise Clayborn. You know how they say “oh you shoud read the book, it’s soo much better”? Well no… No it wasn’t. Jeff may pass Go and collect 2 yatzhees, I raise a blue 2 uno card
