funnier on the big screen

8 years, 2 months ago at Jul 18 13:51
I saw Duck Soup at the Virginia Theatre in Champaign, IL. I'd seen it before - in fact, I own the DVD, but for some reason, it's infinitely funnier on the big screen. Maybe it's because the physical comedy is more obvious when it's bigger, or maybe it's the community atmosphere of a public theatre, but whatever it is, next time it's screened, I'll be the first person in line to see it.

Very funny and immensely entertaining!

"I got a good mind to join a club and beat you over the head with it."

The Marx Brothers have been fondly remembered for several of their timeless comedy productions. Similar to Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, their classic films are overflowing with terrific gags that are still hilarious even during the 21st Century.

Firefly and mayhem erupts. To make matters worse, the neighboring state sends inept spies Chicolini and Pinky to obtain top secret information, creating ... (more)

"6.8. Halusin pitää tästä enemmän kuin pidin, mutta mä koin sen hiukan vaivaannuttavaksi, että lähestulkoon jokaisen elokuvassa suolletun lauseen taakse kätkeytyi vitsi. Osa oli todella onnistuneita, mutta sarjatuliaseen tavoin käytetty tehokeino menetti vähitellen tehoaan ja lopussa en enää jaksanut nostella suunpieliäni. Aikanaan Duck Soupin poliittinen satiiri on epäilemättä ollut anarkistista ja ehkä jopa vallankumouksellista, mutta minkäs sille mahtaa, että ajan patinass"

"Re-watch - April 26th Starting at the beginning of this month, Alamo Drafthouse has been screening ALL of the Marx Brothers' films in order of release, one per weekend. Sadly I haven't been able to make it to any of the other screenings before this one, but hey, at least I finally made it to one of them, right? And best of all was the timing on their screening of Duck Soup, which allowed me to take my dad (the person who originally sat me down to watch a Marx Bros. movie) for his birthday. As "

The Marx Bros. - Best to worst (13 movies items)

" Few movies make me laugh this hard & this frequently. This is the Marx Bros. at their anarchic best. Much like Horse Feathers there are more detours from the plot than a focus on it, and the results are always hilarious. The pair of scenes where Harpo's character takes on a street vendor had me in stitches, as did his constantly clipping pair of scissors. Groucho's wit is as sharp as ever & it's refreshing to see Margaret Dumont play his love interest/comic foil again. While it often seems to m"

AesthetiX Movie Journal: 12/13 (26 movies items)

"12/17 Synopsis: Rufus T. Firefly is named president/dictator of bankrupt Freedonia and declares war on neighboring Sylvania over the love of wealthy Mrs. Teasdale. This was my first Marx Brothers feature (supposedly one of their best) and while I realize they are celebrated icons of Hollywood, I found this film to be less than I'd hoped. Perhaps the hype was too great or perhaps this band of Old Hollywood comedic actors just aren't my cup of tea. Though there were parts of the movie that I f"
