author topic: Which actor would host your fantasy DVD club?

In another thread, I mentioned the downfall of William Shatner's DVD club. Underdog wondered about Walter Koenig getting a club. And so I wondered: which actor would I trust now to pick movies for me, if I had to pay for them ahead of time without knowing what I'd get?

Originally I stuck with the Star Trek theme, and figured Brent Spiner or Patrick Stewart. But I think this discussion will be better if I allow every genre. So tell me your choices :)

Note: I'm using "actor" in the gender-neutral sense. But please limit your choices to the living. :) And explain what sorts of movies you'd get as a result.

Fun idea! Um, I was thinking Naomi Watts but I wasn't interpreting "fantasy DVD club" the right way. ;-)

I'd be interested in a George Clooney or Paul Newman DVD club, and it would be interesting to see what DVDs Robert DeNiro came up with.

For all the wrong reasons, a Mel Gibson club would be... interesting. Probably a lot of Sam Peckinpah, and other violent movies.

What would the Jack Nicholson DVD Club be like? An Edward Norton DVD club?

A Mike Myers DVD club would be nice and funny.

This is kind of hard... it would be easier to choose a director's DVD club.

Of course it would have to be the Elvis DVD Club. I would sign up for sure. If you believe he's dead, then how about a Samuel L. Jackson DVD club? That would be cool. People would probably sign up for a Robert Englund Horror/Slasher DVD club (too bad Tony Perkins is dead...)

We can do directors, also. I'm sure Quentin Tarantino would be a popular choice. Personally, I'd like to see one where Alfonso Cuaron, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, and Guillermo del Toro argued monthly over what to send out. Especially if the argument was recorded and sent along. (I just saw their joint appearance on Charlie Rose)

Naaah, Directors would be TOO easy, easier than making a list of critics' DVD clubs... best keep it to hacks and has-beens and camp favorites. It's more challenging.

How about the O.J. "Wrongfully Accused" DVD Club? Or alternately his "He/She Got Away With It DVD Club"....

I would enjoy the Joe Bob Briggs DVD of the month club, however.

Inarritu would just argue out of chronological order, confusing everyone, so he'd win. But then again, Del Toro would summon demons and pans to scare the other two, and Cuaron would work in so many different genres he would confuse the others. But his choices might be the most nicely unpredictable.

That sounds like the DVD club for me! Hopefully, I'll see Children of Men tomorrow. Pan's Labyrinth is playing nowhere in sight, however.

I was thinking of an Anderson DVD Club: Wes, P.T. and Brad. Okay, I was just thinking of P.T. or Wes, but having three directors fight over the selections sounds like a fun idea.

I've never heard of Brad, before. How about Laurie? :)

I'd sign up for a Laurie Anderson DVD club in a heartbeat.

Children of Men was bleak and harsh and excellent.

I thought for sure Artifex meant Pamela Anderson DVD Club:

- Barb Wire
- Kentucky Fried Movie
- Poncho and Lefty
- Bay Watch the Slow Motion Picture

You're thinking Loni. woozy reminisces about a day almost 27 years ago now when he was having a discussion about Laurie Anderson with his little sister and it was pretty clear his sister was mistaking her for Loni Anderson and woozy let her rant on without correcting her because he thought it was funny.

Ha! That would be a very different Anderson DVD club, wouldn't it.

Brad Andersion is no P.T. or Wes, but he's making some interesting movies.

I once watched this bit where MTV was following Elijah Wood as he was picking up some movies at his local DVD rental shop. The guys has pretty eclectic tastes (he highly recommends Meet the Feebles).

How crazy would a Nick Cage DVD club be? That guy is so kooky! What are his cinematic influences? Who are his favorite actors? Does Nick Cage have spare time to even watch movies? I'd never be able to tell by looking through his catalog. I saw this funny post on a blog th other day: How To Tell If You're Watching A Bad Nicolas Cage Movie.

As sad as that is, that never stopped anyone in fantasy!

So, I should add Isadora Duncan and Albert Einstean. I would love to know what movies they liked.

But then, if you post first and then read the rules in the first post, you realize what a stupid fool you have just made of yourself.



Sorry. It is HARD for me to be linear!
