Brilliant Quotes from a favorite of mine, 'lance, I've used the "latice of coincidence" quote often in casual conversation. It's great.

I hope I remember it correctly, but the line where the scientist turns with a maniacle grin and says: "If you think about it, it could drive you mad"

A few favorites of Mine: (as I remember them)

quote:
Killin' a man's a helluva thing. You take away all he's got, and everything his goin' ta have.

quote:
Little Bill: "I don't deserve this."
Will: "Deserve's got nothin' to do with it."

----"The Unforgiven"

quote:
Rick: "Don't forget Louis, I have a gun pointed straight at your heart."
Louis: "My least vulnerable point."


--- "Casablanca"

And of course, I giggle inappropriately during C.B. Demile's second "Ten Comandments" whenever Chuck Heston booms out the word:

BONDAGE

There's more, but these will do for now.

Actually, Tommy, I think you giggle quite appropriately.

Casablanca, of course, is full of them.

Rumanian woman: "Monsieur Rick, what kind of man is Captain Renault?:
Rick: "Oh, he's like any other man, only more so."
Woman: "He's asked me to come see him in his office tomorrow, and bring my husband."
Rick: "Hmm. Captain Renault is getting broad-minded."

Rick: "Shall we say, twenty thousand francs?"
Renault: "Make it ten. I'm only a poor corrupt official."

"Casablanca" is great. Every time I see it, I come away with a new quote I didn't seem to have noticed before.

We can go nuts on comedic lines from any of the Monty Python Movies, and deservedly so; they are gems. But, I'm sure most of us have them memorized, so a recitation of them would just serve to confirm our nerdosity.

However, this comedic line always cracks me up, from "A Fish Called Wanda":

quote:
"It's K-K-Ken, come to K-K-Kill me."

From the Random Mae West Quotes Page:

quote:
I wrote this story myself, It's all about a girl who lost her reputation, but never missed it.

quote:
You may admire a girl's curves on the first introduction, but the second meeting shows up new angles.

quote:
I only like two kinds of men: domestic and foreign.

quote:
I'm the lady who works at Paramount all day, and Fox all night.

quote:
Mae: "How tall are you ?"
Man: "Six foot seven."
Mae: "Well, let's forget about the six foot and talk about the seven inches".

Fifty more to choose from! (though I notice a certain amount of repitition -- but never mind. As the lady herself said, "Too much of a good thing is wonderful!")

So many impressionists have done Mae West that it's difficult to watch her, and not think she's doing some kind of self satire.

I've seen some of her early movies, and I was surprised at the latitude allowed on the double entendre's. Obviously, the standards didn't tighten up until the post war years? Maybe a movie buff can tell me for sure.

The 1920s were a period of considerable personal and sexual liberation even by today's standards. Weimar Berlin, for example, had a vibrant homosexual scene as well as an artistic scene. All this was swept away by the Depression of the 1930s, which enforced a "return to morality" worldwide on the simple grounds that it wasn't economically feasible to go cheating on your wife when you needed a job.

Then the war came, and an unfortunate side-effect of that was a regimentation of societies, again world-wide, and a simultaneous "macho ethic" was implanted into a generation of people, resulting in the economically-successful-but-morally-staid 1950s.

Well, it's a good deal more complicated than that. But in Hollywood, the end of the great era of freedom came with the establishment of the Hays Office and the Production Code in 1934.

Rather than having much, directly, to do with the Depression, it was the result of a few years of fierce lobbying of Congresscritters and the like, led mostly by the Catholic Church, which hadn't liked the movies from Day One but was particularly appalled by the talkies. Hollywood, essentially, adopted self-censorship, rather than submit to the government variety.

Actually, in my view, this was rather good for movie dialogue, if not for portrayals of unconventional characters such as independent women and the like.

Edited to add:

I'd disagree with this as well. The 1940s were an era of relative freedom in movies, to judge from the profusion of strong female characters -- played most famously by Rosalind Russell. Women were working outside the home, earning money and feeling much more free than ever before, and some of this made it into the movies.

It was only after the war that there was a great, if uncoordinated and generally unacknowledged, project to get women back to housework and everything back to "normal." Thus a stifling conformity in pictures from the late 40s into the early 60s or so.

I would more accurately rephrase my statement, then, to read that the SEEDS of such a push for conformity were sown during the war, as the regimentation of men subjected them to a "macho ethic" which would virtually demand that women be pushed back into the home.

I still don't know why the proof that women could do work as well as men was not used to develop an even stronger justification for full employment.

We digress.

But last night I heard a blurb about women's breasts.

According to a woman researcher, in times of peace and economic well being, the sex symbols and fashions tend to favour a more "boyish" figure-- she pointed to the "flappers" of the 1920's as an example.

Supposedly, when we feel threatened, men feel the need to be "nurtured", so more curvacious sex symbols appear, and fashion starts to favour the "fuller figure".

Sounds like a "just so" story to me, but when we think back to the paranoia of the 1950's don't we see that reflected in those "B" horror movies where irradiated insects stood in for the Commie threat?

And, were not the fifties the big time for the ultra curvy, large breasted sex symbols?

We may think the 50's were a time where "sex" was repressed in film, but was it really? I think it was just put under different management. It's a time of contradictions to sort out. On one hand, the independant, witty Mae West was gone, and we had the image of Jane Mansfield in a low cut wedding dress so tight she could hardly manage to walk in it. One expected her to emerge from the chapel, bound and on her way to the kitchen and pregnancy.

.......movies from the fifties.......no wonder I'm a mess of kinks and fetishes.........

Blockbuster is chucking most of their VHS inventory into the dumpster to make way for DVD. This is tres stupide, since MANY old movies aren't available on DVD. Also, since the original 35mm prints are degrading, the VHS copies are the only record we have for many movies. Blockbuster could sell their VHS movies to other rental outlets, but their rather send them to the landfill.

Stupide.

And my Favorite - but I can't remember which James Bond movie it is:

Tomorrow Never Dies had a few good ones:

Admiral Roebuck: Sometimes, M, I don't think you have the balls for this job!
M: My advantage is that I don't have to think with them all the time!!


Q: If you'll just sign here, Mr. Bond. It's the insurance damage waiver for your beautiful new car. Will you need collision coverage?
Bond: Yes.
Q: Fire?
Bond: Probably...
Q: Property destruction?
Bond: Definitely.
Q: Personal injury?
Bond: I hope not, but accidents do happen.
Q: They frequently do with you.
Bond: Well.....that takes care of the normal wear and tear. Do I need any other protection?
Q: Only from me, 007, unless you bring that car back in pristine order.


Bond: Why did you marry him?
Paris: He told me he loved me.
Bond: That always sounds good.

Bond: It won't look like a suicide if you shoot me from over there.
Dr. Kaufmann: I am a Professor in forensic medicine. Believe me, Mr. Bond, I can shoot you from Stuttgart and still create the proper effect.


And from The World Is Not Enough:

Gene Hackman as "Mac" is explaining to his overbearing colleague what his car represents (somewhat paraphrased, though):

Overbearing Colleague: "See my car? Brand-new Porsche. Your car's an old Woody."
Mac: "So?"
OC: "Your car is a reflection of yourself... specifically your penis. A car is a reflection of a man's dick."
Mac: "You know what my car represents to me?"
OC: "What?"
Mac: "Order."
OC: "ORDER?!?!"
Mac: "Yes, order. You see, every time I turn the key in the ignition, and I hear the purr of the engine, I know that there is order in the universe."

Based on some of the comments here, I went to the video store to rent The Tao of Steve and Repo Man. I went to one of the biggest video stores in Kingston (not Blockbuster). They didn't have either. I don't mean that they were already out for the night. I mean, they didn't CARRY it.

I also looked for two movies that my little one has been bugging me for, CinderElmo and Elmopalooza. These movies get advertised ad nauseum on Sesame Street videotapes. They're popular, particularly Elmopalooza. This video store carries most kid videos but not those two.

Man. I went there to get 4 movies and they had NONE of them. And each one was a popular, well-known movie. It's not like I was looking for a documentary on the mating habits of native creatures to the Outer Hebrides or something. Unbelievable.

So I rented "Say It Isn't So".

I'm sure everyone who has seen it will know this line.

"Bees."

They tried ripping that line off without getting hammered for it on that stupid movie with DMX and Steven Seagal which had the worst dialogue I've ever heard. When they pulled that I changed the channel of my pirated movie channels. I still felt like asking somebody somewhere for my money back even though I hadn't spent any, it was that bad.

Snafu, I am shocked and appalled that you would misquote the great Saint Smith.

quote:
"Hey! Do you have any balls down there?"
"Yeah. The biggest pair you ever saw!"

The actual line is, "The biggest pair you've ever seen, dingle-berry!"

quote:

"My girlfriend went down on 37 guys!"
"In a row?"

The actual line is, "My girlfriend sucked 37 dicks!"

quote:
"Randall, what the hell are you watching?"
"Quality childrens' programming."
"Pervert."

In fact, Randal does not use the word "quality".

As penance, you must make a pilgrimage to Red Bank, New Jersey and make a burnt sacrifice in front of the store at 35 Broad St.

I also suggest that you never, ever, cross a rabid, manic, mildly-retarded Kevin Smith fan again. While there are folk out there that may be more retarded for Smith than I am, I'll put money on the table that I'm the most retarded fan on this message board.

Not that that's really something to brag about.

OKAY! Now you're just bragging M'boy!!!!

That's okay, I'm insanely jealous.

Vicky, did you see the other Smith films? This was only made for Smith fans I think.

It wasn't his best, but it was a good way to put Jay and Silent Bob out to pasture.

Yep, have seen the others (OK not the Flying Car one that M'boy just referred to) and enjoyed them. This one...just not for me.

If that were true, it never would have broken even. It was also made for Ben Affleck/Matt Damon fans (there are way more of them around), Shannon Elizabeth fans (ditto), and film geeks in general (since it mocks Hollywood).

In fact, the flick is doing very well overseas. Folk who've never heard of J&SB attracted to the way it makes fun of Hollywood. The scenes with Wes Craven and Gus Van Sant were brilliant.

I'm busy Ben, BUS-Y!

A Monkey? Wes, you're not even trying anymore.

I can't fathom not knowing of Jay and SB and liking it though.... that's great that it's doing well.

I dunno, it's not like this was the first film to ever use that particular convention. Parody, pastiche and walk-ons by folks playing themselves is pretty old hat (although I did enjoy the Gus-counting-his-money scene, I must admit)

Aren't there lots of Kevin Smith Fans?

I watched the cut scenes on the DVD... Jason Mews should keep the Jay look, it was way less creepy than his usual appearance. Yeesh!

Vicky, what year were you born?

His comic books are da bomb. Some of the lines and situations from J&SBSB were ripped off from his Chasing Dogma comic. Can an author plagiarize themselves?

He also reused some of the jokes from J&SBSB outtakes in his Bluntman & Chronic comic.

I was just asking 'cause I was born in 78, so I was a child of the Eighties, and loved Scoobie Doo. I LOVED that scene out of the movie, so I was wondering if you felt the same way... in a left handed manner I guess.

The Scooby Doo scene was pretty funny. I'm 10 years older than you, but Scooby was a fixture through the 70s as well.

however, a few chuckles do not outweigh the massive yawns the rest of the flick seemed to generate!

Apocolypse Now. Sometimes less is more. The way Martin Sheen delivers this line still makes me stand up and take notice.

I can't believe no one responded to bandit's quote.

It is X-Men of course. I knew I was the only comic book geek in the whole theatre because I was the only one who laughed.

From "Z":

It is established that one of the foremost fighters for Greek democracy, the Parliamentary Deputy Lambrakis, has been murdered by fascists.

At the end of the film, Greek democracy is overthrown and replaced by the military junta, which outlaws the works of Plato, Socrates, Aristophanes, the music of Bach, Beethoven and Theodorakis, the songs of the Rolling Stones and the Beatles, the works of Shakespeare, Tolstoy, Emerson and Goethe, and, in all public places, the letter "Z" painted as a slogan on walls,

which, in ancient Greek, means "He is ALIVE."
