Quote of the *Hobbit* Day

Posted on September 22, 2011. Filed under: News, Quote of the Day | Tags: , , |

Today is the 22nd September, which anyone as tragic as me will know is officially Hobbit Day owing to the fact that it’s the joint birthday of Bilbo and Frodo Baggins.

I couldn’t let this one go by without a quote.

“My dear Frodo, Hobbits really are amazing creatures. You can learn all there is to know about their ways in a month, and yet, after a hundred years they can still surprise you.”

Quote of the Birthday

I tried really hard to come up with a post other than a quote for today, but this morning I woke up with this in my head and it seemed far too perfect:

“I’m old Gandalf.”

Have you been feeling neglected?  Sorry folks.  I’ve been kind of busy seeing the awesome Tim Minchin and friends play live at The Albert Hall.  🙂
I think I’m the only movie blogger I know who didn’t go to the Empire Big Screen this weekend, but I’m looking forward to hearing what you all thought.  Until then, I thought I’d give you a Quote of the Day to remind you that I still exist and haven’t in fact been looted.

Watched this recently. You already know how I feel about this film.

-“I admit it, you are better than I am.
Then why are you smiling?
Because I know something you don’t know.
And what is that?
-I… am not left-handed!

You are amazing.
I ought to be, after 20 years.
Oh, there’s something I ought to tell you.
Tell me.
I’m not left-handed either!”

Quote of the *disappearing* Day

Sorry to post two Quote of the Days in a row but I’m heading off for a couple of weeks and didn’t want to go without saying goodbye.

I don’t have time for a proper post, but I did finally get around to seeing this film which has been at the top of my to watch list for a long time. It’s completely surreal as expected, and perhaps not quite as good as I might have hoped, but I’m glad I finally got around to seeing it.

This line was my one laugh out loud moment of the film:

“We can’t stop here, this is bat country!”

See you when I get back at the end of July

I’m going to be busy for the next couple of days doing some St John Ambulance work for the Hyde Park Summer concerts.

It’s a hardlife 😛

There’s really only one quote to kick off today:

“These go to eleven.”

Had a potentially exciting interview today, so only one quote could be appropriate:

“I am feeling very Olympic today, how ’bout you?”

Another new discovery for me.  I haven’t put this one on the list (yet) but I think it may end up there.  It’s very low budget and underground (and weird), but also pretty compelling.

“Greetings Citizens. We are living in the age in which the pursuit of all values other than; Money, Success, Fame, Glamour, have either been discredited or destroyed.

Money, Success, Fame, Glamour. For we are living in the age of the thing.”

I’ll be impressed if you know this one.

Quote of the *100th movie* day

Posted on January 15, 2011. Filed under: Quote of the Day | Tags: , , |

I finally have a 100th entry on my Movies To See Before You Die list! It’s been getting gradually longer since I first started it two years ago (the first list had about 65 films on).

This latest entry really is a fantastic movie that it’s taken me far too long to see.  And it has so many brilliant quotes I’m going to cheat and have two today.   Definitely a film everyone should see; it never quite lets itself get pigeon holed into a genre so the plot always keeps you guessing, and the performances are all brilliant.

-“I’m sorry, you peed on…?”
-“On the corpse. My question is…”
-“No, my question. I get to go first. Why in pluperfect hell would you pee on a corpse!?”

“You, stop multiplying.”

I found an unlikely bit of festive spirit in this film the other day:

“How is it that we’re always talking on Christmas Carl?”

Merry Christmas Eve Eve 😉

Ennjoying the snow everyone?  In London we have something between proper snow and murky black sludge, which means everything is still running, but getting in to lectures means braving the slippery streets. :S

Have a snow quote to mark the occassion:

“When did you leave?”

“January 12, 1965. Very snowy that day. 7.2 inches of snow that day.”

Hope you’re all getting time off as England once again proves that all snow is the wrong kind of snow.

Review of The Motorcycle Diaries coming soon, I’m just too tired to write it tonight.
