Special Movie one-liner thread


Recommended Posts

Woody Allen is a Jew. Diane Keaton used to be his girlfriend. Making a movie about anti-semitism that focused our sympathy on Keaton because anti-semites might dislike her for having a Jewish boyfriend, rather on the Jews murdered by said anti-semites, would strike people as perverse. The same analogy applies to The Searchers.

Interview with a Vampire--An underrated movie that deserves to be underrated. (Admittedly this joke could apply to all sorts of movies that one finds disappointing, a failure of genuine talent, like Heaven's Gate.)

 

The White Ribbon-Is Michael Haneke just a perverse Stanley Kramer with killer cinematography?

East of Eden-Without James Dean's performance this would just be a middlebrow soap opera; with it, it's a middlebrow soap opera with an awesome lead performance.

 

OR

 

The worst film to have a truly great performance.

> Avatar-Who would have thought that a gaudier, sentimentalized "The New World" with a lot of explosions would be the most successful movie in history.

 

Or my reaction after seeing it:

 

Avatar: It's Pocahontas. In Space.

The Butterfly Effect: This is a movie with a very important message about time travel, to wit that you should never go back in time to try to change the past because you, Ashton Kutcher, are an idiot.

 

Andrei Rublev: It's kind of what Lawrence of Arabia would be like if Peter O'Toole didn't actually do anything.

2 one liners from "E.T. The Extra-Terrestial". Just simply one word that made the movie memorable *Home* that ET keeps repeating. :)

 

That kid at the bus stop teasing about the goblin (ET) pronouncing Uranus in the way that makes that planet the pun of jokes. Where is he from, Your-****. Lol.

The Tree of Life: First, an architect's brother dies in Vietnam 40 years ago, then the universe is created, and then (Spoiler alert!) dinosaurs appear.

 

also: If a nine year old boy could create the world's greatest movie, this is what he would make.

 

1776: The movie that forgot "Wouldn't it be a great idea to make a movie about the debates over the Declaration of Independence and turn it into a musical" isn't really a rhetorical question.

"Star Trek, The Motion Picture" (1979) - the scene where Spock told Kirk to treat V'Ger like a child. Bones McCoy replied Spock, this child is about to destroy every living thing on the planet. Now what do you want us to do... spank it?

"Dirty Harry" (1971) played this past week on the History Channel (go figure) and watching that reminded me of another one liner Dirty Harry Callahan used other than the make my day line. It's the scene where the Scorpio killer had himself beaten up to blame Callahan. Callahan denied it saying *he looks too damn good! :^0*
