Movie Nite at The Cat Site™ April 4th to April 9th

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Okay to make sure we get the ball rolling slightly earlier this we're picking a movie that was suggested last week called...

Dogma

Link to Description and Cast

From the IMBD: "The last known descendant of Christ is called upon to save the existence of humanity from being negated by two renegade angels trying to exploit a loophole."

-sounds like a pretty wild and weird premise for a comedy to me. I faintly remember seeing a little bit of it on TV and there was some stoner with a touque and a big, brown monster trying to get him or something. What was all that about? I guess I will finally find out! So... who might be watching a movie this weekend?

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are in it. I didn't recognize any of the actresses names.

I am, of course, in!

One really can't go wrong with Matt Damon. I even caught that movie with him as half of Siamese twins, and it wasn't bad! Chris Rock is also in this movie, as well as Alan Rickman, who I find to be funny, as well.

DOGMA ROCKS!!!!!

OK, I am a HUGE Kevin Smith fan. Thanks to hubby who made me sit through Clerks at least 5 times when IFC had a Clerks marathon.

Yeah, big cast in this. Kevin Smith actually gave Ben Affleck some of his first real movie roles in Chasing Amy, because they were friends. Selma Hayak is in the movie as Muse. Linda Fiorentino was the girl from the mortuary in Men In Black, who becomes an agent at the end of the film. And Brian O'Halloran is in like every Kevin Smith flick. He was Dante Hicks in Clerks, Bachelor #3 or Gil Hicks in Mallrats, Executive Jim Hicks in Chasing Amy, and reprised his role as Dante in Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back. And of course, there are Jay and Silent Bob in this movie, although pretty tame by comparison to most.

Seen it far too many times to count. That might mean that I'll pass on watching it again but I can totally participate in any discussion on it.

Good choice!

I like Jay and Silent Bob!

I'm in! I haven't seen it in a while! Will just have to see if the video shop has it in!

As a link to that, another good film is Stigmata (I think it was out around a similar time as Dogma and End Of Days)

Good choice for this week. I've seen it a bunch and I'm moving this weekend so I won't get to watch it with you guys. Enjoy it though!

We're watching it now.

I forgot how many truths were in it, as well as how funny it is. Like when Serendipity says, "You people don't celebrate your faith, you mourn it."

George Carlin as a Cardinal...ironically hilarious!!

Well, I saw this movie on Friday and then forgot to post about it. It had some pretty funny parts in it, as well as some brutal parts, at least for a comedy I thought. I finally saw the whole incident with the "excremental". Talk about toilet humor. I wanted to have a shower after that. The character's Jay and Silent Bob were in the movie. They've been in some other movies that I haven't seen. Jay had some really shocking lines that were so piggish I laughed, but I can't mention those things here. Alan Rickman was funny too. There were even some thoughtful remarks on religion, but it remained a comedy. It had me cheering when the evil street hockey minions got their buts kicked. What does everyone else think of this movie?

Yup, Jay is a pig. But he's so oblivious that it could be offensive that it's funny. And he has a good heart, even if he is an idiot. Actually, though, Jay is pretty tame in Dogma compared to Clerks and Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back.

I thought it was hillarious that Alanis was God. Guess She was a She.

That was definitely the part that made me laugh the most. Chris Rock was pretty funny. That scene in the boardroom... "you didn't say 'God Bless You' when I sneezed" had me going... I was like no no no the first time I saw that! I thought the ending was a bit too convenient (her being pregnant by miraculous conception) but oh well.

I liked the line where Chris Rock said about Jesus, "Know him?... he owes me 12 bucks!" He said it a little different than that though.

How about the cheese themed giftshop? There were some cheese hats and stuff.

And at the beginning did you notice the nun carrying a drink over her head with the bartender chasing her?
post #18 of 22
I didn't notice that.... how funny. I like how Ben Affleck's character totally warped that nun tho... I mean it was sooo wrong but still funny.
post #19 of 22
Reading this makes me really wish I had been able to watch this movie! None of my movie rental places had it, so I missed it! Stupid small town!

Yay Dogma. This is just about the only Ben Afleck film that I have enjoyed of his, and that's because Matt Damon is it and and Jay and Silent Bob.

post #21 of 22
I've seen Dogma and don't like it, on the other hand, Cheese flavored things like me.
post #22 of 22
I watched it again this weekend. I do so love this film. I think it is because I find there to be so many truths about religion wrapped up in it. The banter between Affleck and Damon has me laughing every time. I also think that Alan Rickman is fantastic. That line of Chris Rock's was ad libbed, according to imdb.

Then again, I loved the George Burns Oh God! movies, too. The humorous take on religion seems not too far from the truth.

After the Friday viewing, I also rented Chasing Amy, as suggested by someone (and I can't remember who ) in another thread. It didn't progress at all as I expected, and the ending was quite sad.
