    “I got more films in this goddamn building - three I think - in the library of Congress, and people still go, ‘what are you doing that for?’, it gets really annoying - you’d think I’d have earned the right to do something.”

    Ridley Scott - Prometheus commentary -telling all you assholes to shut the fuck up.

  • Titanic



    I’ll be god dammed.

    What’s crazy about this PERFECT film is, after every scene you could pause and say, “So, this is why James Cameron won the Oscar...” and you’d be right 100% of the time. 

    It’s crazy that Kate Winslet didn’t win for this performance. It embarrassed the Academy so bad that they tried to save face and give it to her for The Reader. 


    This movie is too good. Mastery. You can be cynical all you want…

    All the President's Men


    After every time I watch this I only want three things from life: to chain smoke cigarettes, hang out with Jason Robards, and bring down a corrupt government with words!

    The Elephant Man


    Beautiful and terrible to look at - the film Elephant Man, displays what is most monstrous and kind about humanity. The exploitation of Merrick, from both the doctor and the barker is tragic in the way the slope is so slippery. 

    And Anne Bancroft, what a scene stealer.

    The Dark Knight


    Parts are clunky, or really goofy, but none of it matters all that much. Nolan does for Chicago what Mann did for L.A. in Heat, and every time I watch this I remember the theater experience and how everyone just held their breath every time Ledger was on screen.
