We’re 88Nine’s Justin Barney and Milwaukee Film’s Kpolly. We’re buds, we like cinema — we’re Cinebuds.
Kpolly here. This week on Cinebuds we’re rifling around my favorite comedies of the last decade. There were far too many great movies in the last 10 years, so I narrowed it the hell down! Plus, it’s a great time to focus on comedy. Laugh, you beautiful sonofaguns!
The films we cover will tackle such hot topics as telemarketing fantasy; fake Armageddons; imaginary Hitlers; vampire roommates; Belgian hypochondria; puppet-headed pop stars; ghost pop stars; civilized journeys through Britain; very uncivilized journeys through Britain; Catherine Deneuve’s gorilla boyfriend; giant pink fluffy puppies; and Steve Buscemi playing Nikita Khrushchev.
Is that it? No, it’s not.
The list digs deep to find some films that didn’t find their way to the big chains, but not skipping those broader comedies either. It’s a rainbow of fruit flavors, if you will.
We hope you’ll find a few films to seek out and enjoy. We all need those chuckles and guffaws — dare I say, titters — right now. So, enjoy yourselves!
