Movie Recommendation of the Week #8

Clue is our movie recommendation for this week.

Yes this is a movie based off of the board game Clue. You wouldn’t expect a movie based on a board game to be any good, but this movie is surprisingly fantastic.

Perfect Comedy – This is honestly one of the funniest movies I’ve ever seen. The absolutely amazing cast paired with the writing of John Landis, the comedy genius who brought us classics like The Blues Brothers. Christopher Lloyd, Tim Curry, Madeline Kahn, everyone, in this movie is perfectly cast, and hilarious.

Alternate Endings –  Make sure you watch the version of the film that includes the alternate endings. Any release of this film without the endings is a disgrace to this masterpiece. As a riff on the board game, where each time you play there is a different killer with a different weapon, the movie has a series of alternate endings, each one is clever and hysterically funny, if you don’t see all the endings then you are really missing out.

With its premise you just wouldn’t think this movie would work, but it does and it manages to be one of the absolute best comedies ever put to screen. Go watch it right away.

Reasons to watch

  • It’s a giant monster movie that also manages to be a competent drama.

The effects are great. There is a mix of CG and practical effects and all looks very good.

  • Quentin Tarantino named this one of his favorite movies since he became a filmmaker. If that isn’t a big enough recommendation from you, I don’t know what would do it.
