I am still getting used to this new format but at least I can write this on my IPad now. It's the next one from the Seven Deadly Sins which is sloth. I had a hard time with this one because i know I watched many films where there was some lazy oaf in the film but i could not come up with them. I know The Big Lebowski will be popular today so I am not choosing that one plus I have not seen the whole film yet. I almost chose Virginia Mayo from White Heat because I love that she lays around and, at one point, she is snoring but she is also a two timer and maybe she doesn't quite fit. I hope the 3 I chose do fit. Check out Wandering Through The Shelves to see what other films have been chosen.
1. GONE WITH THE WIND-1939
This is still the biggest money maker ever when you convert the dollars it made to today's dollars. It is an epic film even though it glorifies the South but that takes a back seat to Scarlett and her scheming ways to nab dumbnut Ashley Wilkes away from boring Melanie Wilkes despite them marrying..talk about kissing cousins. Scarlet manipulates men except for one, good ole Rhett Butler who loves her despite the fact that she is a double B-beautiful bitch. Scarlet always goes back to Tara-her home and land that is a part of her. So where is the lazy coming in? This comes in the form of Miss. Prissy, the house slave who don't know nuttin' 'bout birthin no babies. She really knows how to be a dog F#$! meaning she does as little as possible but gets slapped in the process. The wonderful Butterfly McQueen stole the scenes that she was in with her acting and high pitched voice. She was an endearing soul that hated to be typecast and quietly left Hollywood going back to college living in her little cottage before passing away at 84.
2. RETURN OF THE JEDI-1983
Pizza the Hut..er, I mean Jabba The Hut was only in this film at the beginning but he was memorable as a hugely, obese slug who chained up Carrie Fisher in her skimpy outfit where her boobs popped out so frequently, the men would just tell her she was popped out again. Every boy and man slobbered like Jabba seeing Carrie in that outfit. This slug really could not move much and was an evil slimy thing happy to have Han Solo frozen in that slab of whatever. Of course, Luke saves everyone but not before almost dying in the dunes fighting off a number of beasts with the help of Leia(still in her outfit), Han(now unfrozen), Chewbacca and Lando Calrissian, played by suave and handsome, Billy Dee Williams. The rest of the film has Luke fighting Daddy Dearest while the others are trying to stop the evil empire with the help of those irritating little shits called the Ewoks who overpower sophisticated machines using their rocks and vines...OK.
3. OFFICE SPACE-1999
3 friends work in an office for a scumbag boss along with some weirdos including a guy who probably would love to blow up something if he doesn't get his red stapler back. The friends must contend with a printer that never works properly(we have all been there) until they take it out and slam the hell out of it. When the Bobs come to revamp the company and make it more efficient aka-firing a bunch of people, Peter decides to show up without dress protocol and just says what is on his mind. Instead of being fired, he is promoted and Peter decides to do F-All and be the biggest slacker ever. His 2 friends are fired so the 3 of them hatch a plan to take out a few pennies from the company they work for but it doesn't go as planned. This is a very funny film about the frustrations of working in an office job and the dream of wanting to slack when you are unappreciated.
I hope these 3 fit...which would you choose?
