Also "There Will Be Blood," no?

By the way, my last post was a vindictive joke. I listened to an old show the other night where Tom made some just ridiculously wrong-headed and derisive comments about Preston Sturges, the greatest American comedy director.  Watch them for sure, then tweet him and tell him he's wrong.

The Day After Tomorrow (inspiration for the coinage of "awfulsome," I believe)

I remember him and Patton Oswalt saying they really liked the Snake. And I vaguely remember Tom saying he liked Four Lions.

The Snake is very funny. He once commented on The Third Man saying it is one of the best movies ever made. He was talking about how the DVD only had one disc when Beer League had two.

Ealing Comedies? I think he's mentioned The Ladykillers specifically; not so sure about any other ones.

Is it just me, or does this kind of look like a sleazy Clifford?

I remember him arguing with a caller that it's a great satire but not a great comedy.
