"Some of my favorite movie quotes:
"Upset? You've never seen me very upset." Tom Cruise, Mission: Impossible "Here's a hint: when you're telling a story, having a point! It makes it so make more interesting for the listener." Steve Martin, Trains Planes and Automobiles "You're out of your mind." "Yeah, ain't it cool?" Christian Slater talking to John Travolta in Broken Arrow "She'll be reaching for the sleeping pills within a week, and you and me will laugh about this until we're very old men." Aaron Eckhart in In the Company of Men "Strange memories on this nervous night in Las Vegas. Five years later? Six? It seems like a lifetime, or at least a Main Era --- the kind of peak that never comes again. San Francisco in the middle sixties was a very special time and place to be a part of. Maybe it meant something. Maybe not, in the long run ... but no explanation, no mix of words or music or memories can touch that sense of knowing that you were there and alive in that corner of time and the world. Whatever it meant...There was madness in any direction, at any hour...There was a fantastic universal sense that whatever we were doing was right, that we were winning....And that, I think, was the handle --- that sense of inevitable victory over the forces of Old and Evil. Not in any mean or military sense; we didn't need that. Our energy would simply prevail. There was no point in fighting --- on our side or theirs. We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave. So now, less than five years later, you can go up on a steep hill in Las Vegas and look west, and with the right kind of eyes, you can almost see the high water mark: that place where the wave finally broke, and rolled back..." Exert from Hunter S Thompson's 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas'"

|Biography: ||I live in Melbourne, Australia, where it's sunny in the summer and unpredictable any other time of year. Film reviewing has become a great hobby for me over the last few years; it's a satisfying way for me to spend some of my time and energy. I have maintained a web site for around the last three years, and with the help of a few friends it's developed over time to something we're pretty happy with. My work can be seen on my web site, In Film Australia (http://infilmau.iah.net), as well as various popular sites such as Urban Cinefile, Movienutz, Festivale and Movies Online. I have also been published in the Melbourne print magazine 'The Big Issue.' |
