Movie Quote of the Day!

Roman: You’re not gonna do what I think you’re gonna do.

Brian O’Connor: Yeah, I think so.
– 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)

2 Fast 2 Furious was my favorite movie of the franchise up until Fast 5 happened!


Movie Quote of the Day!

You are probably going to be a very successful computer person. But you’re going to go through life thinking that girls don’t like you because you’re a nerd. And I want you to know, from the bottom of my heart, that that won’t be true. It’ll be because you’re an asshole.
– Erica Albright, The Social Network (2010)

Movie Quote of the Day!

Vesper Lynd: [after discussing poker skills on the train] What else can you surmise, Mr. Bond?

James Bond: About you, Miss Lynd? Well, your beauty’s a problem. You worry you won’t be taken seriously.

Vesper Lynd: Which one can say of any attractive woman with half a brain.

James Bond: True. But this one overcompensates by wearing slightly masculine clothing. Being more aggressive than her female colleagues. Which gives her a somewhat *prickly* demeanor, and ironically enough, makes it less likely for her to be accepted and promoted by her male superiors, who mistake her insecurities for arrogance. Now, I’d have normally gone with “only child,” but by the way you ignored the quip about your parents… I’m going to have to go with “orphan.”

Vesper Lynd: All right… by the cut of your suit, you went to Oxford or wherever. Naturally you think human beings dress like that. But you wear it with such disdain, my guess is you didn’t come from money, and your school friends never let you forget it. Which means that you were at that school by the grace of someone else’s charity: hence that chip on your shoulder. And since you’re first thought about me ran to “orphan,” that’s what I’d say you are.

[he smiles but says nothing]

Vesper Lynd: Oh, you are? I like this poker thing. And that makes perfect sense! Since MI6 looks for maladjusted young men, who give little thought to sacrificing others in order to protect queen and country. You know… former SAS types with easy smiles and expensive watches.

[Glances at his wrist]

Vesper Lynd: Rolex?

James Bond: Omega.

Vesper Lynd: Beautiful. Now, having just met you, I wouldn’t go as far as calling you a cold-hearted bastard…

James Bond: No, of course not.

Vesper Lynd: But it wouldn’t be a stretch to imagine. You think of women as disposable pleasures, rather than meaningful pursuits. So as charming as you are, Mr. Bond, I will be keeping my eye on our government’s money – and off your perfectly-formed arse.

James Bond: You noticed?

Vesper Lynd: Even accountants have imagination. How was your lamb?

James Bond: Skewered! One sympathizes.

Vesper Lynd: Good evening, Mr. Bond.

James Bond: Good evening, Ms. Lynd.

-Casino Royale (2006)

Eva Green as a bond girl is just perfect. She is nothing less than Bond himself.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004): The world forgetting, by the world forgot.

motion picture aficionado

Oh, what would I not give to forget just to be able to remember again! What would it be like to forget something which is the very essence of you and then to have it happen to you again?

“There’s an emotional core to each of our memories…”

eternal sunshine minimalist

As the movie starts, we meet Joel Barish (Jim Carrey) who seems a little disoriented. He ditches work and takes a train to Montauk which puzzles him as he’s not an impulsive person. And then he sees her, all clad in orange, walking along the beach, Clementine Kruczynski (can we take a moment to appreciate the name? Oh, and Kate Winslet). He looked away, trying not to look long at her. As if she were the sun, yet he found himself staring at her, starstruck.

Joel: (narration) “Why do I fall in love with every woman I see who shows me the…

Movie Quote of the Day!

“Perhaps it is good to have a beautiful mind, but an even greater gift is to discover a beautiful heart.”

-Nash, A Beautiful Mind (2001)

This one’s from a deleted scene, but I guess I wanted to restate how terrified, mortified and petrified he was to be on his own…his story was truly one that reaffirms our faith in human will to overcome all the obstacles that life puts in front of us. You will be missed, John Forbes Nash, Jr.
