Topic says it all... update everyone with that you've watched recently, and a small opinion and/or some lines that are memorable or funny.
I didn't watch anything today (thanks to being in and out with another fucking cold and post whoring... I mean posting alot today), but here's yesterdays movie...
My Cousin Vinny
(1992) Starring... Joe Pesci, Ralph Macchio, Marisa Tomei, Fred Gwynne
Probably one of my favorite Joe Pesci movies (alongside "The Super") as he plays a inexperienced lawyer that means life and death (literally) for Bill (Ralph Macchio) and Stan (Mitchell Withfield, who are charged with murder of some redneck who works at the Sack-o-Suds convenient store (a.k.a shitty 7-11).
Pesci has a lot of good lines (including the exchange in the bar with the guy who owes him money) here and there, although most of it is just shouting foul language. However, his side kick in crime, (Mona) Lisa (Marisa Tomei), his fiancee of... god knows how long, as a few good lines as well. Also, while she does a good job, I still don't see how she won the Oscar for Supporting-Actress. Oh well...
Anyway, the best part of the film is, of course, Joe Pesci (playing Vincent Gambini) being completely clueless in court, upsetting the judge (Fred Gwynne) to the point he was thrown in jail multiple times. From dressing problems to obscene language (his entire opening statement was "Everything he just said is bullshit... Thank You"), Vinny couldn't catch a break. On top of that, he lied to the Judge about his previous trials, which is a total of zero, and thus has to lie his way out of everything when cornered. Vinny eventually evolves into a decent lawyer, with the help of Lisa of course, and thus get the two "youts" off the hook.
Overall, a very funny movies that has its serious moments as well (which mainly consisted of Pesci and Tomei), and is all around enjoyable. The profanity level is a little high (the duo literally say fuck at least 6 times in a span of 5 seconds in 1 scene), which should be expected when a Pesci movie has an "R" rating.

wrote:Vinny: Lisa, I don't need this... I swear to God, I do not need this right now. I got a judge that's just aching to throw me in jail. An idiot who wants to fight me for two hundred dollars. Slaughtered pigs, giant, loud whistles... I ain't slept in five days. I've got no money, a dress code problem, and a little murder case which in the balance holds the lives of two innocent kids. Not to mention your (stomps 3 times) Biological clock. My career, your life, our marriage! And let me see! What else can we pile on? Is there any more shit we can pile on to the top of the outcome of this case?! Is it possible?!"
Lisa: Maybe it was a bad time to bring it up.
