Ah, so many good quotes from Finding Nemo, like "Dude, Mr.Turtle's my father.", "Just keep swimming!", "I didn't know you could speak whale!", and then the australian accents with "Hello, I'm Bruce." Pixar did an amazing job on this one. Gretchen had Dori, Nemo, and Marlyn on her cake one year for her birthday. I just love australian accents!
"Mmm... Murdered by pirates. Heart torn out and eaten. Meet Victoria. I can't quite decide which sounds more fun..." - Yvaine
Stardust was a really cute movie. Basically it's about this guy, Tristan, who is in love with this weird chick,Victoria, but to win her love he has to escort this fallen star girl, Yvaine, from one end of the kingdom to the other without being eaten by witches. If you have ever seen a romantic comedy then I'm sure you'll be able to figure out what come next.
"You sure this is the right blind voodoo lady who lives in the boat in the tree in the bayou?" - Louis
I'm sure by now you can tell I'm a Disney fan (especially the princesses). Sure, they might be a little sexual or whatever they are claiming, but kids love the movies and you can't deny that. It's too bad that this was made the same year as Slumdog Millionaire otherwise it would have won the best musical number. Almost There is so much fun to belt out! (and When Were Human, Goin' Down The Bayou, and Dig a Little Deeper.)
Claire: I think you understand why I'm saying you're a total idiot.
Charlie: Okay, okay, grand. Don't sugarcoat it.
Claire: I won't.
Letters to Juliet is a very cute movie. It's not necessarily like the normal romantic comedies, but i'm not saying it isn't either. The setting is amazing. I would love to go to Italy someday. Oh! Fun movie fact. The boyfriend of Sophie is played by Gael García Bernal, who just happens to be in The Motorcycle Diaries, which we just finished watching in Spanish. Also, this is Amanda's second time she's played a Sophie. (here and in Mama Mia)
Black Doug: Why not floories, right? 'Cause when you take 'em, you're more likely to end up on the floor than the roof. What about groundies? That's a good new name fo' 'em.
Alan:Or how 'bout rapies?
I talked about The Hangover once, and how I was thinking about it in church. You can read about it here. It's a really funny movie, with a really good/intelligent (well as intelligent as any movie where three guys lose one of there friends in Vegas can be) ending. Apparently 'nard dog' (from The Office and the one on the far right of the picture above) really got his tooth knocked out when he was younger and just had the false one taken out for the movie. So he was walking around with no tooth for a while. Got to give him credit, he really suffers for his rolls.
"Excuse me Miss, what color is Michael Jackson?" - Nick
I rented this movie (via apple TV) when Mom, Dad, and Gretchen went to the state fair and I do what I do best, watch movies and then sit around quoting them. It's quite funny if you don't mind the sick jokes and guy humor. The whole concept of going back in time through a time machine (thus the name Hot Tub Time Machine) is kinda' a funny idea. Though I am a little leery of going in one myself now.
"You mean, you didn't just say: Stop the car, dear God, I beg of you, stop the car?" - Inspector Jacques Clouseau
Some of the most stupid things happen in this movie. The Pink Panther has a wonderful cast, I don't know how they can stand to be in some of the hilarious scenes with the 'inspector', I would just die.
"You are a scholar, are you not? Judging from your diminished physique and large forehead, you are suited for nothing else!" - Princess Kida
A very good Disney made movie, Atlantis: The Lost Empire. It's on a few times during the year on disney channel. It's quite funny, with the weird dog man, and then the dude who is always fiddling with bombs, plus that tuff little chick. Princess Kida reminds me a little of Pocahontas.
Harvey: Heh heh heh. Any psychotic ex-boyfriends I should be aware of?
Alfred: Oh, you have no idea.
Because what American doesn't like this movie? I'm a scaredy-cat and I even went to see The Dark Knight. I think Batman is my favorite hero, and only plausible one. I love the quote from above, poor Harvey.
"In our family, there was no clear line between religion and fly fishing." - Norman
Yes, that is Brad Pitt. He did a wonderful portrayal of the younger brother in A River Runs Through It. It's such a poetic movie, but I don't want to give too much away. Plus, dudes will like it because it's basically all about fishing. Win-win.
I only know a little hawaiian,A wiki wiki mai lohi lohi, and that I learned from Disney's Lilo & Stitch. It's a sad movie in the beginning, poor Lilo and her sister (Nina) are trying to live life after losing their parents and then Stitch escapes from an intergalactic research lab... It's all very crazy and confusing to explain, just watch it.
Will: They still haven't come up with one yet. But I'm sure they're working on it.
The most beautiful movie ever, Definitely, Maybe is so adorable! Courtney and I watched it on the plan ride to Florida and I just have never been able to get it off my mind, it's a beautiful love story between a dad and a daughter and a man and a women.
"Love and kisses Zaphod? You didn't even read it, did you?" - Zaphod
Funny story, I've only seen this movie once. For my 12th Birthday I didn't have a party, instead I went out to a movie with Nora and my family and then she slept over. Mom absolutely despised The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy, where as I enjoyed it, true I had never read the book (still haven't) and nothing made that much sense, but hey whatever. The opening scene was very good.
"How can you read this? There's no pictures!" - Gaston
This summer, during my no tv/computer week, I started listening to the Beauty and the Beast soundtrack on my ipod. I can now belt all of the songs out. The cool thing about this movie was that it was nominated for Best Animated Picture and Best Picture at the Academy Awards. Then 10 years later the same thing happened to Up(also on the count down), you can see how unusual that it. Apparently they only save it for special movies.
Look there he goes, isn't he dreamy? Misure Gaston, oh he's so cute!
Bestill my heart, I'm hardly breathing. He's such a strong, tall, dark, and handsome prince.
"Who wants to go down the creepy tunnel inside the tomb first?" - Riely
Aww! Riely! I just love that guy, and his measly 1%. Wonderful movies, National Treasure so educational. He gets all of the great lines and he is so much better looking then Nicholas Cage. As Meghan reminded me a few weeks ago with this little sketch.
Fun times in Spanish. Now, this isn't entirely free handed, there was an old dude/minister guy of some sort on one of our Spanish papers and Meghan gave him a face lift....
"Let's face it, this is not the worst thing you've caught me doing." - Tony
Wouldn't you love to live the Iron Man lifestyle? Money is no object, cars, and awesome computers. Seriously, it's like an amazing touch screen and it has a British accent. It talks to him! I want a robot computer butler too!
"Wow, that was really scary and if you don't mind me saying, if that don't work, your breath will certainly get the job done, 'cause you definitely need some Tic Tacs or something 'cause your breath STINKS." - Donkey
Who couldn't love a big, green ogre? All of the Shrek's are pretty good, except the third one. That one was messed up, not to mention the weird little wizard that switched Puss and Donkey's butts. Very odd. I did like the fairy godmother. Her song was good that she sang in the end and the whole idea of Far Far Away. The fourth one is sweet, a little like It's a Wonderful Life. Then the old classic, the first one, can you believe it was made nine years ago! Man, time flies!
"I have this theory, that if you cut off all her hair she'd look like a British man." - Cady
I know lots (well all) of you are squealing in front of your computer monitors right now. Who doesn't like Mean Girls? Yes, it's a crazy plot and none of this would ever happen in real life, but I think that's what makes it so lovable. Plus Tiny Fay and Amy Poehler are in it. Along with our innocent little Lindsey.
"This day has been rather disappointing, I don't mind saying." - Howard Payne
Very intense movie, Speed. I sure wouldn't want to drive a bus over 50mph. Wouldn't it run out of gas quickly? I've only seen this movie once, but I liked it. It's a different idea, and I think that's what made it. A bomb on a bus, good plan for the evil guy, not so good for the police guy.
"I always say, the way a man treats his car is how he treats himself." - Tarconi
The picture above is basically what all three Transporter movies are about. Frank fighting people and his car. Not a feel good movie, it doesn't go in depth. It's really just about the action sequences. This is when I found out how much of a second hand adrenaline junkie I was. I enjoy seeing other people have gun pointed at their head. Mess up right?
"That birdcage? Poppycock! Elevators are for old people. Whoops!" - George
We haven't had a good Disney movie in a long time. What better one to pick up on then The Aristocats? I love this movie, and it's not only because of the drunk goose and the cats who can play instruments. Okay, well maybe it is because of them...Sue me!
Okay, what happens in Paul Blart Mall Cop could almost never happen in real life. Note the almost. And if it does, then I hope to be a witness to it all. It's either that or I meet Pahud, I think we could be great stalkers together.
Today after school Gretchen, Mari, and I filmed our spaghetti western. You know the whole 'this town ain't big enough for the bot of us thing. I was the bad gun slinger and Gretchen was the good sheriff. It was quite fun.
Gretchen and I have recently become Bourne fans. This past Friday we rented (via our apple tv that I have learned to love) the first two. Man! The car chase scenes! They're amazing! Not to mention Matt Damon in his younger years. It's kinda' funny to see a spy movie set before all of this new computer stuff. The tech people have chunky computers that take up the whole desk. Plus, nobody has an iphone....weird stuff.
The Emperor of China: The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all.
The Emperor of China: You don't meet a girl like that every dynasty.
Another wonderful Disney movie, Mulan. I think I've talked about the fact that every little girl has her disney princess. I have Pocahontas, Courtney has Meg (Yes! She's a princess too!), Gretchen has Cinderella, Tekla has Belle, and Ragan has Ariel. Those are just the ones I know of. You might have notice a very important person is missing from the list. (No it's probably not you.) Nora hasn't really be introduced to Disney, at all. She's kinda' living under a rock, but she can quote Monty Python! Any who, her honorable disney princess (who I bestowed upon her) is Mulan. They're quite a like if you think about it.
"Do you prefer Margaret or Satan's Mistress?" - Grandma Annie
Betty White is the best in The Proposal. So funny and crazy. The whole baby maker thing is a cute gag, the whole 'easter egg' thing, and when she pretends to have a heat attack in the helicopter! Sorry, I just ruined it for a couple of people.
"And my tail's froze. And my nose is froze. And my ears are froze. And my toes are froze." - Lucky
What better classic disney movie then 101 Dalmatians. I love that song Roger composes. Dalmatian plantation home! And how he and Anita meet, all thanks to Pongo! What odd names for the two dogs, Pongo and Perdita. Ah, it's all good, nothing can mess with this lovely movie.
