    Dr. Emmett Brown: Don't worry. As long as you hit that wire with the connecting hook at precisely 88 miles per hour, the instant the lightning strikes the tower

    [giving what he just said some thought]

    ...everything will be fine.

    Say what you want about how well made, good and entertaining today's blockbusters are. They simply don't measure up to this. Robert Zemeckis - Romancing the Stone (1984) was good, but you really hit the nail with this one.

  • Jaws



    This is the original summer blockbuster, and will remain unmatched. Jaws was a big thing in Norway too at the time, my brothers talked about it, and made their little brother envious. Because when it came out, I was a few years too young to watch it at the theater. My older neighbor however did, and I still remember him telling about the experience.

    The haircut-sequence is an important part of this. As before a…

    Hello, Jacob.

    I wanna play a game.

    In your own eyes, you used to consider yourself quite the connoisseur of good films. No one could come up to you and convince you otherwise. Not with your library of good taste.

    Still, a while back you decided to watch the complete Saw collection back to back. You voluntarily chose to do so…
