[font=Trebuchet MS][b][color=darkred]Paul Begala (Political Commentator):[/color][/b] Texas is a very Republican state. It's South Carolina on steriods.[/font]

[font=Trebuchet MS]Politics in Texas is very strange: when I was born, Texas was a strong Democratic state, but now most people identify themselves as Republican! It seems like a short period of time to me... [/font]

I, Robot(2004)

[b][url="http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000226/"]Detective Del Spooner[/url][/b]: You are a clever imitation of life... Can a robot write a symphony? Can a robot take a blank canvas and turn it into a masterpiece?

Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan

[b]Driving Instructor[/b]: In America, a woman can choose who she has sex with.
[b][url="http://imdb.com/name/nm0056187/"]Borat[/url][/b]: WHAAAAAAT?


[b][url="http://imdb.com/name/nm0005134/"]Brodie[/url][/b]: Listen, not a year goes by, not a year, that I don't hear about some escalator accident involving some bastard kid which could have easily been avoided had some parent - I don't care which one - but some parent conditioned him to fear and respect that escalator.

Along Came a Spider

I adore Freedman, but this movie was boring and lacked depth.

Saw III(2006)


An illogicals plot, ridiculuous script, and atrocious acting conspired to make this one of the worst movies of the year. Actually, Saw III is perhaps one of the worst movies ever - unless you consider seeing a judge drowning in rotten pig parts something that comprises great cinema.

Raising Arizona


Raiders of the Lost Ark

[Upon opening the Well of the Souls and peering down into it]
Sallah: Indy, why does the floor move?
Indiana: Give me your torch.
[Sallah does, and Indy drops it in]
Indiana: Snakes. Why'd it have to be snakes?
Sallah: Asps. Very dangerous. You go first.

[font=Trebuchet MS][i][At a seminar, Charlie Kaufman has asked McKee for advice on his new screenplay in which 'nothing much happens'][/i]
[b][color=sienna]Robert McKee:[/color][/b] Nothing happens in the world? Are you out of your fucking mind? People are murdered every day. There's genocide, war, corruption. Every fucking day, somewhere in the world, somebody sacrifices his life to save someone else. Every fucking day, someone, somewhere makes a conscious decision to destroy someone else. People find love, people lose it. For Christ's sake, a child watches her mother beaten to death on the steps of a church. Someone goes hungry. Somebody else betrays his best friend for a woman. If you can't find that stuff in life, then you, my friend, don't know crap about life. And why the FUCK are you wasting my two precious hours with your movie? I don't have any use for it. I don't have any bloody use for it.

Who Killed the Electric Car?

[font=Trebuchet MS]I thought [i][b]Who Killed The Electric Car[/b][/i] started weakly - at some points it was confusing and frustrating - but it became more organized once the movie progressed. It was an interesting look at the mulitudes of factors that contributed to the "extinction" of the electric car: consumers, oil companies, car companies, the government, California's board of .. something.

A Prairie Home Companion

My family has listened to NPR and A Prarie Home Companion for an eternity, so naturally I knew the premise behind Guy Noir, the Blond, Dusty and Lefty, and Minnesota - but this movie seemed so busy and cluttered with confusing subplots. At the end, all I got an[i] impression[/i] of the themes of death and loss but not much else.[/font]

And invariably what you'd say was supposed to be your career. So, if you wanted to fix old cars you're supposed to be an auto mechanic.
[b][color=darkgreen]Samir:[/color][/b] So what did you say?
[b][color=darkslateblue]Peter Gibbons:[/color][/b] I never had an answer. I guess that's why I'm working at Initech.
[b][color=sienna]Michael Bolton:[/color][/b] No, you're working at Initech because that question is bullshit to begin with. If everyone listened to her, there'd be no janitors, because no one would clean shit up if they had a million dollars.

I'm goin' crazy out there at the lake." And I says, "What kinda action?" and he says, "Woman action, what do I look like?" And I says, "Well, what do I look like, I don't arrange that kinda thing," and he says, "I'm goin' crazy out there at the lake," and I says, "Well, this ain't that kinda place."
[b][color=navy]Officer Olson:[/color][/b] Uh-huh.
[b][color=darkolivegreen]Mr. Mohra:[/color][/b] So he says, "So I get it, so you think I'm some kinda jerk for askin'," only he doesn't use the word jerk.
[b][color=navy]Officer Olson:[/color][/b] I understand.
[b][color=darkolivegreen]Mr. Mohra:[/color][/b] And then he calls me a jerk and says the last guy who thought he was a jerk was dead now. So I don't say nothin' and he says, "What do ya think about that?" So I says, "Well, that don't sound like too good a deal for him then."
[b][color=navy]Officer Olson:[/color][/b] Ya got that right.
[b][color=darkolivegreen]Mr. Mohra:[/color][/b] And he says, "Yah, that guy's dead and I don't mean of old age." And then he says, "Geez, I'm goin' crazy out there at the lake."
[b][color=navy]Officer Olson:[/color][/b] White Bear Lake?
[b][color=darkolivegreen]Mr. Mohra:[/color][/b] Well, Ecklund & Swedlin's, that's closer ta Moose Lake, so I made that assumption.
[b][color=navy]Officer Olson:[/color][/b] Oh sure.
[b][color=darkolivegreen]Mr. Mohra:[/color][/b] So, ya know, he's drinkin', so I don't think a whole great deal of it, but Mrs. Mohra heard about the homicides down here and she thought I should call it in, so I called it in. End o' story.
[b][color=navy]Officer Olson:[/color][/b] What'd this guy look like anyway?

Howl's Moving Castle

[Howl comes running out of the bathroom, screaming. His hair is now orange]
Howl: Sophie! You, you sabotaged me! Look! Look at what you've done to my hair! Look!
Old Sophie: What a pretty color.
Howl: It's hideous! You completely ruined my magic potions in the bathroom!
Old Sophie: I just organized things, Howl. Nothing's ruined.
Howl: Wrong! Wrong! I specifically ordered you not to get carried away!
Howl: Now I'm repulsive.
[slumps into a chair]
Howl: I can't live like this.
[starts sobbing, head in hands]
Old Sophie: Come on, it's not that bad.
[Howl's hair changes color to purple, then black]
Old Sophie: You should look at it now, its shade is even better.
Howl: [inconsolable] I give up. I see not point in living if I can't be beautiful.

Bride and Prejudice

[font='Times New Roman'][font=Trebuchet MS][size=2][color=navy][b]Will Darcy:[/b] [color=black]I'm a hopeless dancer, but this looks like you just screw in a light bulb with one hand and pat the dog with the other.[/color][color=black][font='Trebuchet MS'][/font][/color]

[color=black][font='Trebuchet MS'][color=black] [/color][/font][/color]

[color=black][b]Aishwarya Rai[/b], the famous actress renouned for her beauty, plays Lalita Bakshi[b],[/b] the Indian Elizabeth Bennett. Aishwarya's acting was pretty weak, but I'm willing to give her the benefit of the doubt. Afterall, [b]Bride and Prejudice[/b] [u]is[/u] her first movie entirely in English.[color=black][font='Trebuchet MS'] [/font][/color][/color][color=black][b]Martin Henderson [/b]played William Darcy; though he was too of a "nice guy" to effectively portray the harsh, offensive character of .. well, Jane Austen's Mr. Darcy. He and Aishwarya are equally matched counterparts in that they are both very pleasing to the eye (and aren't great actors). [/color]

[color=black][font='Trebuchet MS'] [/font][/color]

[color=black][font='Trebuchet MS']By American movie standards, this is probably not a good film. I mean, the lip-syncing was barely tolerable. Some of the musical scenes were beyond cheesy. The plot is very predictable ? but what else do you except from a remake of one of the most famous romantic novels of the English language? [/font][/color]

[color=black][font='Trebuchet MS'] [/font][/color]

[color=black][font='Trebuchet MS']However, despite this movie?s flaws, I enjoyed it. The dances were intense. Through this movie, I got a glimpse at the things that make India an incomparable place: Hindu traditions (what I assume was a puja being performed at the first wedding), garlands, clothing, gold, and music. Everything seemed to contain bold, beautiful colors and rhythms, all uniquely Indian.[/font][/color]

[color=black][font='Trebuchet MS'] [/font][/color]

[color=black][font='Trebuchet MS']This is my first Bollywood film, though I don?t know if Bride and Prejudice is comparable to norm of Bollywood. First of all, it?s in English. I want to watch more, but ... those movies are rare here.[/font][/color]

[color=black][font='Trebuchet MS'] [/font][/color]

[color=black][font='Trebuchet MS']Some people have remarked on the lack of sexual contact between Lalita and Will. It?s just part of the Indian culture and cinema: there is no kissing or sexing on film. I know, it?s unheard of in America - there must be somebody getting laid or else it?s a G-rated Disney movie, right? Well, no, I don?t think so. [/font][/color]

[b][color=olive]Guildenstern:[/color][/b] No, no, no... Death is "not." Death isn't. Take my meaning? Death is the ultimate negative. Not-being. You can't not be on a boat.

Four Weddings and a Funeral

[font=Trebuchet MS][b][color=darkred]Gareth:[/color][/b] I've got a new theory about marriage. Two people are in love, they live together, and then suddenly one day, they run out of conversation.
[b][color=navy]Charles:[/color][/b] Uh-huh.
[b][color=darkred]Gareth:[/color][/b] Totally. I mean they can't think of a single thing to say to each other. That's it: panic! Then suddenly it-it occurs to the chap that there is a way out of the deadlock.
[b][color=navy]Charles:[/color][/b] Which is?
[b][color=darkred]Gareth:[/color][/b] He'll ask her to marry him.
[b][color=navy]Charles:[/color][/b] Brilliant! Brilliant!
[b][color=darkred]Gareth:[/color][/b] Suddenly they've got something to talk about for the rest of their lives.
[b][color=navy]Charles:[/color][/b] Basically you're saying marriage is just a way of getting out of an embarrassing pause in conversation.
[b][color=darkred]Gareth:[/color][/b] The definitive icebreaker. [/font]
[font=Trebuchet MS][/font]
[font=Trebuchet MS]For some reason, I really, really like this movie, but I care little for the main plotline. Maybe it's the humour and the accents?

Gunner Palace

[font=Trebuchet MS][color=darkolivegreen][b]SGT Beatty[/b]: [color=black]When you sit on your couch and you watch the TV, and you go to your 9 to 5 job and you complain about the pizza being late ... there's no way you're gonna know how to live here. Someone being sympathetic to this? I don't know if I'd be sympathetic if I wasn't in the army. After you watch this, you're gonna go get your popcorn out of the microwave and talk about what I said, and you'll forget me by the end of this.[/color] [/color][/font]
[font=Trebuchet MS][color=darkolivegreen]
[font=Trebuchet MS][i]Gunner Palace[/i] seemed composed of individual, almost opposing segments and edited in a hashed-together style. Some of it made me laugh, yet other parts were so serious and harsh. One minute, the cameraman would cover the weekly visit to an orphanage in Baghdad, yet in the next scene, American soldiers would raid a suspected insurgent's house, yelling and shoving men to the ground. The electric guitar riff of "The Star-Spangled Banner" overriding the Arabic call to prayer "Allah u Akbar" in the background emphasized the contrasting aspects of the movie. Overall, the movie didn't seem incredibly unique, nor did share any new revelations about the war or soldiers in Iraq.[/font]

[font=Trebuchet MS]I enjoyed the cinematography and soundtrack, which included acoustic covers of David Bowie in Portuguese, Johann Sebastian Bach, and even the Icelandic group Sigur Rós.

Cane Toads: An Unnatural History

[font=Trebuchet MS][left][font=Trebuchet MS]For those who find bizarre animals a source of entertainment, here is an eccentric documentary about the cane toad, evaluating the toad's exceptional eating and relentless mating habits and a poison that kills almost every animal that tries to eat them. The cane toad[/font] was introduced into Australia as counter pests to solve to a problem farmers had with cane grubs. Instead of being a solution, the toads ate [i]everything [/i]else [i]except[/i] for the grubs they were intended for[i],[/i] multiplied at alarming rates, and "flourished" in the Bush's defenseless, unaccustomed ecosystem. These toads will attempt to eat anything that moves, even ping pong balls and mice - this behavior was demonstrated in the film - very shocking, to say the least. I quite enjoyed the scene where a man was shown smoking cane toad poison, for the hallucinogenic [size=2]high. [/size][/left]

[left]Now, I know this doesn't look like an amazing film, but the quirky humor and interesting subject matter make it worthy of repeated viewings. I missed the first fifteen minutes of the film because I arrived at school late due to a fieldtrip to the Dallas Museum of Art and therefore I missed the portion of the film about "proper mating technique" but.. I can live without that. [/left]

Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre

[font=Trebuchet MS]Too commercialized and watered-down, this adaption is unfaithful to the novel's winsome spirit. [/font]

[font=Trebuchet MS]The acting was tolerable, except on [b]William Hurt's[/b] part. I do not dislike him really, but he does not fit the role of Mr. Rochester. [b]Charlotte Gainsbourg[/b] gives the most strong-willed portrayal of Jane I have seen yet. Director [b]Franco Zeffirelli[/b] did a beautiful job with the score and imagery. Therefore, I lay the blame on the producers or the screenwriters or whoever was in charge of the script. Jane's stuggles with Mr. Brocklehurst and St. John Rivers were practically re-invented, mutilating events that were necessary to comprehensively understand Jane's relationship with Mr. Rochester. Had the producers left the movie intact and not turned it into a cheap knock-off, it could have been more enjoyable.[/font]

[font=Trebuchet MS]The full-hearted interaction between [b]Timothy Dalton[/b] and [b]Zelah Clarke[/b] is so pure. Each actor deserves applause, for both their individual acting and their chemistry together. Dalton?s voice is love! Always strong, very much like Mr. Rochester. He even managed to carry out the confession scene well! [/font]
[font=Trebuchet MS]He may be "too handsome" for Rochester's part, but the passion is there. He was rude, stern, fierce, and tender at all the appropriate moments. See Dalton's Rochester, understand why Jane would fall for a man like him.
I first heard of Dalton from the stage play of [i]His Dark Materials[/i] where he played Lord Asriel. I am jealous of those who were able to witness Dalton [i][u]live[/u][/i].

I must also give some major props to [b]Alexander Baron[/b], writer of the screenplay, for his utmost devotion to Bronte?s novel. The details were very accurate; many sections seem to have been taken straight from the book. Baron took no shortcuts, which would have cheapened the movie. All the many essential details were kept, the actors gave the utmost diligence to portraying their characters accurately. At first, the visual direction seems a bit [i]TV-ish[/i], but that is of little consequence considering how well all the other components worked. [/font]

[font=Trebuchet MS]As a major fan of this book, I fully endorse the 1983 BBC version. Rumor has it that there is another adaptation made in 1973 featuring Michael Jayston as Rochester that is even [i]better[/i], but alas, it is rare and difficult to find. This one is quite good enough.[/font]

[/indent]I have liked all of [b]Stanley Kubrick's[/b] movies so far .. they have an [i]different [/i]sort of feeling compared to other movies.. the emotions are so real, like the actors can reach out to you and shake you by the shoulders. I truly, truly love his sense of humor.

[font=Trebuchet MS]Once again, the [b]soundtrack[/b] selection was outstanding.. [/font]

Overall, I think this is another masterpiece. However, I was deeply unsettled during certain points, here and there.. I know that Kubrik fully intended for the scenes to be realistic and eerie. His ability to make his films seem so real is a reason why I like his style so much. It disturbs me simply because the were too plasible, it creeps me out. I felt so guilty afterwards for not working out that I climed out of bed and worked out. It was past midnight. The movie encountered serious

The interactions between Pyle and Sgt. Hart litterally gives me chills.

Bad Education

[font=Trebuchet MS][color=black]Written and directed by [b]Pedro Almodóvar[/b]. First movie I've seen directed by him.[/color][/font]

[color=black][font=Trebuchet MS]
My first film featuring [b]Gael García Bernal[/b]. I have the urge to see [i]The Motorcycle Diaries[/i] and [i]Y Tu Mamá También[/i] now, decorated with subtitles of course. The three years I spent struggling in Espa[font=Trebuchet MS]ñ[/font]ol class helped some.[/font][/color]

[font=Trebuchet MS]The music and cinematography were beautiful 100% of the way.[/font]

[font=Trebuchet MS]The NC-17 rating didn't seem to fit. I was pretty aprehensive about this film because of that rating.. but honestly, there are many other R rated movies that are more explicit.

There's a total dearth of quotes online for this movie.

A Streetcar Named Desire

[color=black][font=Trebuchet MS]I never met a woman that didn't know if she was good-looking or not without being told, and some of them give themselves credit for more than they've got. I once went out with a doll who said to me, "I am the glamorous type, I am the glamorous type!" I said, "So what?"[b] --Stanley Kowalski[/b][/font][/color]

[color=black][font=Trebuchet MS][color=black][font=Trebuchet MS]All in all, the film was pretty entertaining. The directing was pretty good and the acting was super.[b] Tennessee Williams[/b], the Pulitzer Prize-winning screenwriter, did a marvelous job of developing the characters' personalities. I'd like it more if the raping and [b]Blanche DuBois's[/b] dementia didn't were not such depressing issues. The entertaining plot, good directing and amounted to a well-made film, but everything about Blanche rubbed me the wrong way. [/font][/color][/font][/color]

[color=black][font=Trebuchet MS][color=black][font=Trebuchet MS][color=black][font=Trebuchet MS][color=black][font=Trebuchet MS]I practically hate Blanche: she is a selfish, manipulative, shallow, pathetic and disgustingly impulsive liar. [/font][/color][/font][/color][color=black][font=Trebuchet MS][color=black][font=Trebuchet MS]Actually. . . she shares some traits with Stanley, but Stanley [i]never[/i] implied that he was better than everyone else.

[left][color=black][font=Trebuchet MS][color=black][font=Trebuchet MS][color=black][font=Trebuchet MS][b]Marlon Brando[/b][/font][/color][color=black][font=Trebuchet MS] was excellent as Manly Stanley Kowalski. He portrayed Stanley's bestial rage and brutish behavior so perfectly. Our English class watched the film after reading the play together, and there was a consensus among all that Brando was a hunk.[/font][/color][/font][/color] [/font][/color][/left]

[color=black][font=Trebuchet MS][color=black][font=Trebuchet MS][color=black][font=Trebuchet MS]Last year I saw Marlon Brando as Anthony in the motion picture [i]Julius Caesar[/i]. I didn't realize that it was he, but I thought he did a damn good job. So he gets a 9 for his unique stentorian acting and a worthy physique![/font][/color][/font][/color][/font][/color]

[color=black][font=Trebuchet MS][color=black][font=Trebuchet MS][color=black][font=Trebuchet MS]The movie was pretty loyal to Williams's original play, except for the reminiscent 1950s censorship. It's ironic how a play involving drinking, lying, homosexuality, prostitution and rape (all the taboo stuff) turned into a movie that earned a MPAA rating of PG.[/font][/color] [/font][/color][/font][/color]

[color=black][font=Trebuchet MS][color=black][font=Trebuchet MS][color=black][font=Trebuchet MS][color=black][font=Trebuchet MS][i]So in conclusion--[/i] The actual film components were superb, but it was the actual content of the movie that I didn't like so much.. I recommend this movie for you if you like movies that were made in the 50's and/or if you like depressing plots. On the other hand, this is pretty much a classic so see it anyway.[/font][/color][/font][/color][/font][/color][/font][/color][/font][/color][/font][/color]

The Upside of Anger

[font=Trebuchet MS]Last night we went downtown to celebrate Christina's birthday. She wanted to see some movie none of us have heard of, Upside of Anger. We went into the theater maybe 10 minutes late, waiting for Katie's ass.

Outside the doors there was a poster of the movie. [b][i]"Kevin Costner?!"[/i][/b] I had to yell/whisper. Honestly, when the beginning of the movie was not impressing. Granted, I didn't know [u]wtf[/u] was going on.. (learned that: Dan wasn't Dad, etc.)

At the half point of the movie I started enjoying it. When there were sad parts, I almost genuinely felt sad. I started getting a hand of the quirky humor and laughed along with all the old people in the theater. The directing was pretty good. I was happy that the $6 I spent was not for a cookie-cutter movie. (However, I did waste $17 on bowling and a gazillion gutter balls :mad: )[/font]

[font=Trebuchet MS]Overall, it was an alright movie and I'd give it another go sometime.. I just don't think this is my [i]type[/i] of movie. I do not like [/font][font=Trebuchet MS]seeing old people hook up. Just not into it. Reminds me too much of my parents getting it on. :o [/font]

Napoleon Dynamite

[font=Trebuchet MS]Everyone and their grandmother has seen Napoleon Dynamite at our school. Gosh.
Alas, when such a movie is deemed as hilarious by practically everybody, it'll be somewhat of a let down. I should have learned my lesson by now, don't you think?

Katie let me borrow the VHS on Friday. It was kind of sad when I had to sit down and watch it by myself because the rest of the family was [i]gone[/i].
It wasn't bad.. just a different type of funny that I wasn't expecting. (i.e. Tater tots? The Llama?) My favorite character was PEDRO. :up: ooh, he warmed my heart.

My Filipina mother loved it.

[b][/b] [i]Tuesday, 26 April 2005[/i] - Napoleon Dynamite has been very popular at our school.. the [i]cum laude[/i] speech was even based it on the movie. Everybody loves quoting the movie; it's been used in many, many student body posters (e.g. skillz, Vote for *insert name here* and so on). And our softball team hearts it as well:


Ah, Napoleon arouses fond memories of 2005! [b][/b] [/color][/font]
