Who Would Win in a Fight?

I’ve been posing the question “Who would win in a fight?” for years, and it’s been a lot of fun. It’s a pretty simple game. Choose two people or groups who are bound by any sort of similarity, and ask “Who would win in a fight?” involving the two people or groups. You can solve age-old questions this way. Namely, you’re solving the question of who would win in a fight between two very similar people or groups. The only rule to remember here is that they’re fighting. You might like Option A more than Option B, but do you really think they’d win if it came to fisticuffs? Here are some examples of how the game works, with movie personalities, and my own answers.

The New Year’s Resolutions: Update #6

I’m a little late with my monthly update on my New Year’s Resolutions. It’s been 35 days since I wrote my last update (it published 32 days ago). The reason for that: I’ve hit a huge wall.

To help you in the process, I’ve created a handy, dandy comedy flowchart, which should point you in the right direction. Enjoy! Continue reading

The AFI 100 Laughs Experience

As regular readers of this site know, I’ve made it my goal to watch the entire AFI 100 Years, 100 Laughs list in 2012. When I started the process, I had already seen 57 films, leaving me with 43 to watch. It’s more or less consumed my movie-watching this year, and with good reason. It’s been an enlightening experience. Admittedly, I’m putting the cart before the horse here a little bit. I still have three more to go before I can cross everything off the list. That said, I’ve enjoyed the 40 that I’ve seen enough that I wanted to share some observations. Continue reading
