Man I got a quick response on that one.

Nah, not trying to have a dig but I really did not enjoy those movies.

for me Pretty in Pink is all bad,

and the only thing I like about SKOW is how gorgeous Mary Stewart Masterson looks.

Ok.

SKOW is definitely better. But I didn't think that much of both the movies.

But yeah SKOW hands down.

I'll take a shameless vote for SKOW over a mature and reasonable vote against it any day... [Big Grin]

And Bernie...isn't there a guy in Pretty In Pink that's in one of your obvious favorite movies...if you didn't like both movies, then at least I thought that might have encouraged you...plus...you're encouraging Paul....

Yeah I adore Andrew McCarthy but while he is a very talented actor he couldn't keep that whole movie afloat.

I honestly think SKOW is the better film though, and Paul got to me first so what can I say.

Ringwald would NEVER have played the Watts role as we know it and would probably have ruined the movie. Thankfully, Ringwald got a touch starstruck, believed her own press cuttings a little too much, and declined to work with the ultimate movie genius of the decade.
Ringwald could never have been Watts.

I'm not sure it's settle-able Helen! I think the issue here is people are being forced to choose one or t'other - which is difficult. It's like State's rights... it could lead to war!

You can say:

"After a period of deep soul-searching, I have decided that PiP is the bestest. If Italy can switch sides in two World Wars - I can switch sides here. Andrew McCarthy, James Spader, The Psychedelic Furs; I have to choose PiP. Plus Kev and Logan really look up to me for my dress sense and taste in movies, so I couldn't let them down."

Just sayin'.

Logan, you put a fairly convincing argument, but PiP still loses. I like your guys enthusiasm trying to convince someone to change their vote.

It would have been more convincing though if you said, just switch sides to irritate Paul. [Big Grin]

Oh... er... I forgot to say...

*COUGH!*

Just switch sides to irritate Paul!

*COUGH!*

No, seriously. It's obviously a free choice you've made. If my point about Italy wasn't good enough to change your mind, then I guess nothing would be. If suggesting you turn against the fascists wasn't enough, then what more can I say? I mean, if you really agree with the Nazis and what they did, then sure - stay where you are. Me and Kev... we'll fight on anyway... we like to breathe the sweet air of freedom... waves of amber grain... that kind of thing. But who knows, maybe, just maybe, against all odds, Kev and I will pull this out of the bag and win even wihout your much-needed skills and support. Maybe the children of the world will really have a future.

Maybe.

Logan,

Well I heard the holocaust was a myth anyway.

Ok lets shake things up to make it interesting.

Yep, definitely Pretty in Pink.

It was the best movie of all time.

The zoom ins, the framing, I was enchanted.

I mean come on what classic 80's movie doesn't have Andrew Dice Clay.

the inspirational wisdom of Harry Dean Stanton could leave Socrates winded.

And yes highly believable that Ringwald is so sort after.

Sorry Paul - It looks like Pretty in Pink has the vote.

For what it's worth, Italy never switched in WW2. So by switching, you're agreeing with everything you've just abandoned....

Just thought I'd mention it, Mr 'soon-to-have-an-embarrassing -user-title'.

Do you have any possible name changes in mind?

Anyone else have any thoughts on these two movies or comparisons? I'd like to hear from the original poster since they never gave us their thoughts.

Are we talking officially or technically? In WWI they failed to honour their treaties with the central powers and came in with the Allies because they felt they could gain more. In WWII they wanted to switch sides after Mussolini was deposed, but Britain wouldn't let them, so they switched ideologically but not officially (Germany, of course, then invaded them, because it knew Italy would not resist an Allied occupation).

Having said that; at this point I'm so confused as to what standing for each side in this debate means, all I can say is...

Vive la France!

Oh yeah. She is so hot.

If I ever see a girl that looks like that I am definitely gonna aske her out.

Mary Sturat Masterson.....Ughh so gorgeous.

I've got a feeling someone is trying to bait me into changing my vote back with this picture.

Walken, the Penn's, Masterson...but I remain not a fan.
