Top 10 Most Colourful Films
#10 – RED 2
#9 – Blue Velvet
David Lynch’s zany romantic comedy tells the story of a young man, played by Kyle “The Flintstones” MacLachlan, who’s looking for love and finds a severed ear in the process. Chaos ensues.
#8 – Aquamarine
Aquamarine is a film about a mermaid! One of those things that’s half fish and everyone wants to have sex with (but how?).
Also of interest: beloved songstress JoJo is in this film.
#7 – Crimson Tide
This film is about periods.
#6 – Ladies in Lavender
Ha ha! Look at them there, in all that lavender. This is vintage Dame Judi Dench and Dame Maggie Smith. Always getting in the lavender and then coming home smelling of lavender and you have to give them a bath. Anyway, this is a film about two old dames who befriend a “mysterious stranger” who washes up on a beach near their house. It turns out he’s a Polish violinist and not a paedophile as the term “mysterious stranger” implies.
#5 – The Brown Bunny
Salacious unsimulated fellatio scene? What salacious unsimulated fellatio scene? This film is about an ADORABLE BUNNY. Get your minds out of the gutter.
#4 – The Color Purple
The only thing Oprah loves more than enlightening people about slavery is looking fabulous in purple.
#3 – Pretty in Pink
Little known fact: John Hughes demanded that Molly Ringwald wear over 50,000 different shades of pink during filming, leading to an unprecedented costume budget of over $10 billion.
#2 – Blood and Chocolate
This sounds less like a Hugh Dancy film about werewolves than 1) a colour palette from the early Noughties: “Hey guys, so I was thinking warm earthy tones for the atrium? I’m seeing blood and chocolate?” or 2) a discount fetish supermarket.
#1 – Navy Seals
BOOM! That was Charlie Sheen throwing a grenade into a seal’s face, probably. BOOM! Winning! The real winners here are us, the audience.
