Food Movies!
Edited on Tue Nov-22-11 09:23 PM by kentauros
To help us all celebrate the holiday, post your choice of food movies, and a clip :hi:

Here's a bit from Tampopo

(someone replaced the soundtrack for a dumb action-music track)

8. That one and the Japanese "Tampopo" are my two favorite foreign food films
And I need to see both again! :D

"Big Night" is probably my favorite American food-film:

Oh yeah, the actress that played "CJ" in The West Wing is in it, too ;)

32. And check out Ang Lee's "Eat Drink Man Woman."
Tortilla Soup, which I enjoyed very much (LOVE comedy of repetition..."I have an announcement." :rofl:), was the U.S. remake of Eat Drink Man Woman.

Rent both. You'll love them.

5. Well, if we're going to include food-fights,
(and I have no problem with anything related to food on film) then look at this:

"Taxi! Drive me off this picture!" :rofl:


As for Animal House, I find it amazing that John never choked on all that food he stuffed into his mouth :o

18. Yeah, another one to go on Netflix :)
Can't find a clip, but there's Peter doing dinner in Brooklyn (My Favorite Year) and asking about a "rather pungent" flavor in the meal he'd just eaten }(

14. Of course!
Even though it covers cannibalism, they do so with a fine wine and good-quality cooking skills :evilgrin:

25. Depp and Binoche-- alas, appreciated far more in France than here. But...
should you get a chance, rent, borrow, or steal the latter-- a great silly and hilarious farce.

(One of the French Presidents, I forget which, asked Binoche to be his mistress. She wisely refused, as she has refused shiny things dangled by Hollywood.)

And, I forgot to mention Bread and Chocolate-- not strictly about food, but a mrvelous little movie nonetheless.

16. I'll have to watch those during lunch :)
At least for "The Wing and the Thigh". I've seen Cook, Thief, Wife, Lover; even have the soundtrack. I remember seeing it in the theater and that while it was compelling, it was still bizarre. The ending though... }(

:) I still can't decide if I liked that film, but I remembered it.

20. Then you definitely need to see "Eating Raoul"
:P

Or better yet, "Parents"

29. Pieces of April, Waitress, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Julie and Julia,
Obviously I spent the past few hours doing chores and thinking about this! Yummy! Pieces of April is an excellent Thanksgiving movie (and before Katie Holmes became hitched with Tom Cruise)

Would "wine" movies count in this? Bottleshock and Sideways might be added in....

34. I LOVE that movie! Can't believe I forgot it the first time. "Bad Baby Pie!"
I get teary every time that scene comes on where she's feeling so down, and Dr. Pomatter stops by her house, and her voiceover says "Dear Baby, I hope someday somebody wants to hold you for twenty minutes straight and that's all they do. They don't pull away. They don't look at your face. They don't try to kiss you. All they do is wrap you up in their arms and hold on tight, without an ounce of selfishness to it."

Or Old Joe, "I love living vicariously through the pain and suffering of others." :evilgrin: :rofl:

37. Adrienne Shelly wrote a great script...
Edited on Thu Nov-24-11 07:29 AM by CBHagman
...and the cast did a knockout job with it. I might have to pop the DVD in this weekend.







But it will make me crave pie, all kinds of pie -- chocolate, peach, and of course Bad Baby Pie. ;-)
