I dont have a problem with companies bumping off main characters; keeps interest going and is more realistic than everyone good lives and only ever leave if they get a promotion or married.

I wouldn’t mind it Now And Then – the trouble is it has become so overdone that it’s a cliche all its own – and what is meant to be a dramatic and moving moment just becomes ‘oh no, they did it again’ – which fails to have any emotional resonance.

I mean – they even killed off one of the characters in the Matrix sequels twice to try and yank our emotions about. What a load of cobblers.

Matrix characters were far to bland for me to care for them.

Everyone – What are some of your favorite movie quotes? List the quote and the character who said it.

 

“He’s very fussy about his drums, you know. They loom large in his legend.”

George Harrison in A Hard Day’s Night

 

“He survived all those storms to be washed away by a few plastic lottery balls.”

Michael O’Sullivan in Waking Ned Divine

 

“I guess you can say I went west – the way of Heratio Alger, Davey Crocket, the Donner Party….”

Martin Blank in Grosse Pointe Blank

 

Dr. Rumack: “You’d better tell the Captain we’ve got to land as soon as we can. This woman has to be taken to a hospital.”

Elaine: “A hospital? What is it?”

Dr. Rumack: “It’s a big building with patients, but that’s not important right now.”

From Airplane!

 

“And now you understand. Anything goes wrong, anything at all; your fault my fault nobody’s fault it won’t matter – I’m gonna blow your head off. No matter what else happens, no matter who gets killed, I’m gonna blow your head off.”

Jacob McCandles in Big Jake

 

Bud Elder: “It was a week before school started and I clumb Pike’s Peak.”

John Elder: “You done what to Pike’s Peak?”

Bud: “I clumb it.”

John: “You didn’t clumb it, you climbed it.”

Bud: “What’s the difference? I got to the top, didn’t I?”

From The Sons of Katie Elder

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.

Ahhh Mom and I are going to binge watch James Bond movies this week. Which Bond flicks do you like? Is there anything special you think we should be on the lookout for while watching them?

I like “From Russia With Love” the best, but Roger Moore plays the best Bond, not Sean Connery.

I’ve always found that Roger Moore started out great as James Bond but over time the films deteriorated and by the time the 80’s kicked in they were pretty standard, under Timothy Dalton they were dire; improvment was found in Pierce Brosnan tho they were still very inconsistant.It wasnt until Daniel Craig took over that they returned to a high level, tho the less said about ‘Spectre’ best said. Sean Connery was probably the best overall but even then one or two of his era I find to be poor.

Apologies.

‘On Her Majesty ‘s Secret Service’ is a very good story but George Lazenby couldn’t act very well; in places a tree would have been better. Lessens the film for me.

Of course there are the obvious Beatles connections in the Bond movies: 1. Don’t listen to Beatles without earmuffs, 2. Barbara Bach was in a Bond film, 3. Paul did the Live And Let Die song.

These two I’m going to claim as being Beatley: 1. In Live And Let Die , there is a character named J.W. Pepper (John Winston and Sgt Pepper references?) 2. In Die Another Day , Halle Berry tells Bond to turn the laser machine off or she won’t be half the woman she used to be.

Refresh my memory. Which Bond film is the “Beatles without earmuffs” thing in? Goldfinger? I know it’s one of the Connery ones…

Yes, it is in Goldfinger.

Here’s another semi-obvious connection.  From the George Martin article on Wikipedia:

Martin also directly and indirectly contributed to the main themes of three films in the James Bond series. Although Martin did not produce the theme for the second Bond film, From Russia with Love, he was responsible for the signing of Matt Monro to EMI just months prior to his recording of the song of the same title.[84]

Martin also produced two of the best-known James Bond themes. The first was “Goldfinger” by Shirley Bassey in 1964.[85] The second, in 1973, was “Live and Let Die” by Paul McCartney and Wings for the film of the same name. He also composed and produced the film’s score.[86

I missed that one, both the girl and the movie.

I do however recall watching Qantum of Solace …. 😉
