“I am Merida, and I’ll be shooting for my own hand.”
This was my first advance screening of a film, and I had to endure giving up my cell phone, having my bag checked, and then being swept for recording devices. Even worse, I had to deal with a theater that was 70% filled with children between the ages of 3 and 8. Was it worth it? Definitely.
2009. 135 Minutes. Rated R.
“These are the best days of our lives. It’s a terrible thing to know, but I know it…”
It was 1966 and music pretty much would never get any better then it was right then… overall anyways. I mean sure, good music continued to be made after ’66, I’m not arguing that. Something about that particular time though… it’s like you can tell WHY it was being made. They had something to say. Guess what though…. the man didn’t want them to say ANYTHING.
“The good news is the engine has exploded and we’re all going to die.”
Stranger Than Fiction
Harold Crick (Will Ferrell) is doomed. He doesn’t know it at first, but the smallest of occurrences has placed him walking a path everyday that will lead to his imminent death.
Quote: Every weekday, for twelve years, Harold would tie his tie in a single Windsor knot instead of the double, thereby saving up to forty-three seconds. His wristwatch thought the single Windsor made his neck look fat, but said nothing.
