[NOTE: Split from the "Iron Man" thread in the movie section. I thought this matter would be best addressed in its own thread. --"Curiosity Inc."]

Not that hard to understand brah. However I do agree with Spider-man 2. I don't understand how anyone could not like that movie.


It's a strange world, I don't understand how could anyone say meatballs is better than up !

:lol:


I'm pretty sure that the ska oreo - meatballs joke is pretty redundant now.
It's now come to the point where whenever anybody disagrees with him, they bring it up, and it's become a pretty unoriginal insult.
I now cringe every time I see somebody bagging out ska oreo because he likes that movie.
If you want to diss someone, be more creative, don't just keep on bringing up the same thing.

I'm not speaking in his place or defending him, I'm just tired of seeing the same thing over and over.

I prefer to treat it as a kind of running gag around here. One of the forum's little quirks and inside jokes.

Well I must admit that there was a time when I thought the joke was hilarious.
There was once a thread quite a while ago where I felt that the point of the squid had gone over Ska Oreo's head, so I created this image, but forgot to upload it.

I miss Smutty telling it like it is.

Oh okay, you just moved it here.

And that image is indeed hilarious.

you gotta admit though, Meatballs is a good movie,not sure if i'd ever compare it to Up though, they are far too different movies to be able to be compared. you don't compare Goodfellas and Spaceballs, because they are both live action, so why compare Up and Meatballs because they are both CGI?

Sorry to add fuel to the fire, but I didn't like Up at all. My wife stopped watching it after it was done halfway, but I kept going... I didn't get it.

It starts off with this wonderful idea about a couple that never went on their adventure, then the old man sails off and I was excited...

Then nothing happens. There's an annoying bird, talking dogs, some old blimp psycho trying to kill them... I thought the whole thing went kablooey and there was no point to it all.

IMO, Meatballs was better too. It wasn't great, but it had a coherent story line and characters I cared about.

I actually wasn't a giant fan of UP either. I've only seen it once and I should really rewatch it sometime, though. I really liked the beginning, but the rest was just alright for me. Dug was funny and everything, but it wasn't like Wall-E or The Incredibles where I found it to be equally strong all the way through.

that's sort of my point, Up was a character piece, and Meatballs was a comedy. the problem with Up was it had inconsistent pace, and slowed down after the first act and stayed slow until the final face off, the talking dogs were there to keep kids entertained, and unless you feel invested in Carl's journey, which was what the first act was meant to do, it kind of drags, meatballs was great all the way through though.

Back on topic, a wealthy man was having an affair with an Italian woman for a few years.

One night, during one of their rendezvous, she confided in him that she was pregnant.

Not wanting to ruin his reputation or his marriage, he paid her a large sum of money if she would go to Italy to have the child. If she stayed in Italy, he would also provide child support until the child turned 18.

She agreed, but wondered how he would know when the baby was born. To keep it discrete, he told her to mail him a post card, and write “Spaghetti” on the back. He would then arrange for child support.

One day, about 9 months later, he came home to his confused wife.

“Honey,” she said, “you received a very strange post card today.”

“Oh, just give it to me and I’ll explain it later,” he said.

The wife obeyed, and watched as her husband read the card, turned white, and fainted.

On the card was written: “Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti. Two with meatballs, one without.”

Only on this crazy forum could that post be considered at all on topic.

It's my favourite David Lynch film.

EDIT: I am, of course, referring to Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs.
