Another Monday! Another post! Still the same theme!
This movie is incredible funny, and very dark. I think it didn’t get a fair shake in theaters. Totally worth your while if you haven’t seen it.
Bastard Son of Barney! Die! Die, you stuffed son of fluff! You illegitimate Teletubby! Die, you Muppet from hell! Die, you foam motherf***er!
Still on theme month. This is one of the most quotable movies ever, and one I watched every semester in college. Think I need to revisit it…
Phone call from God. If it had been collect, that would have been daring!
This quote isn’t a dead giveaway, but it’s close. Put more below!
Three weeks in a row! A new record? Perhaps. I think I’ll make it a theme month…
Sgt. : What does three up and three down mean to you, airman?
Adrian: End of an inning?
Remember, put more quotes below.
My birthday was earlier this month. Whereas I haven’t hit a new decade yet, it’s coming. It’s coming. Such things remind me of this quote (movie has tons of great quotes, list more below):
Value this time in your life kids, because this is the time in your life when you still have your choices, and it goes by so quickly. When you’re a teenager you think you can do anything, and you do. Your twenties are a blur. Your thirties, you raise your family, you make a little money and you think to yourself, “What happened to my twenties?” Your forties, you grow a little pot belly you grow another chin. The music starts to get too loud and one of your old girlfriends from high school becomes a grandmother. Your fifties you have a minor surgery. You’ll call it a procedure, but it’s a surgery. Your sixties you have a major surgery, the music is still loud but it doesn’t matter because you can’t hear it anyway. Seventies, you and the wife retire to Fort Lauderdale, you start eating dinner at two, lunch around ten, breakfast the night before. And you spend most of your time wandering around malls looking for the ultimate in soft yogurt and muttering “how come the kids don’t call?” By your eighties, you’ve had a major stroke, and you end up babbling to some Jamaican nurse who your wife can’t stand but who you call mama. Any questions?
Ok…let’s see if we can get Movie Quote Monday to live for more than one week in a row… We’ll make this one easy. You know the rules, put more quotes in the comments below.
We’re rehearsing a – a scene for the upcoming company play called uh, Put That Thing Back Where It Came From Or So Help Me. It’s a musical.
Special movie quote Thursday on this special day:
Good morning. In less than an hour, aircraft from here will join others from around the world. And you will be launching the largest aerial battle in the history of mankind. “Mankind.” That word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can’t be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests. Perhaps it’s fate that today is the Fourth of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom… Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution… but from annihilation. We are fighting for our right to live. To exist. And should we win the day, the Fourth of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day the world declared in one voice: “We will not go quietly into the night!” We will not vanish without a fight! We’re going to live on! We’re going to survive! Today we celebrate our Independence Day!
So… I made a reference to this movie on a conference call yesterday and no one got it. Hell, 2/3 of the people on the call had never even heard of this movie and the others hasn’t seen it. Boggles my mind.
Today’s quote is never said in the movie. It’s the opening lyrics to the theme song.
Are you ready for the summer?
Are you ready for the good times?…”
Remember your days at Camp below.
I was confronted with a question today…What is the best Jean-Claude Van Damme movie? I should laugh it off. It’s not a serious question. Yet, I’m intrigued with the answer. Is it:
- “Hard Target” – Directed by John Woo, it is easily the best directed JCVD movie.
- “Bloodsport” – The one that really started the JCVD phenomena. I still remember my dad telling me I *had* to watch it.
- “Timecop” – the only movie he ever did with an actual plot.
- “JCVD” – the meta movie.
Or another? Are you a big “Death Warrant” fan? Do you think “Sudden Impact” is the best “Die Hard” rip off, and thus deserving the Best JCVD award?
What is the best JCVD movie???
The first trailers for “Man of Steel” left me cold. The were bland, sterile, uninteresting. The last few have been better. This last one is flat out GREAT. This trailer pretty much cements my butt in the theater.
Seriously, not to extend the hyperbole, but this may be the greatest trailer ever made.
I figured this was topical for today:
Give me a scotch. I’m starving.
