All right, taking the more direct approach with a variety of quotes:


X: I'm just doing what you taught me.
Y: I never taught you to be a thief.

----

I think positive emotion trumps negative emotion every time.

----

You couldn't have peed before you went under?

----

Why would you put a freight train in the middle of a street?

----

You keep telling yourself what you know. But what do you believe? What do you feel?

Okay, well since you put it that way, I'll have a go.

This one is from "Inception".

Hands down, one of my favorite movie-going experiences, ever.

Correct, Jonathan, and I agree. It handily knocked Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and The Matrix out of joint top position on my list of favorites. I've never before had such a huge, wildly popular movie feel like it was made just for me. I was initially torn between euphoria at the film itself and rage at not having been the one to make it, but I couldn't stay angry for very long.

It's out on Blu-ray/DVD tomorrow, if I remember the commercials correctly, everybody go out and get 'em while they're hot.

Quotemaster duties are now yours!

That's a good enough endorsement for me... it's going into our NetFlix queue now. Thanks!

That is too strange.....you've captured in words exactly what I felt when I was watching it as well.

I'll have the next quote up shortly.

Okay, here's the next quote:


X: "Hello. Ray.. (pause) What happened?"

Y: "I wrote your number down to call you. It's been sitting next to the phone for 6 months. When I knew it was inside the house, I couldn't think of any other number to call - I panicked. Thank you for coming, Father."

X: "You're welcome, Ray."

Y: "I worked so long that night. I've never fallen asleep driving before... Never since.

X: "Don't..."

Y: " Most of the ride home, there wasn't a car in sight in either direction. If I'd have fallen asleep then, I would have ended up in a ditch with a headache. And it had to be at that right moment... that 10, 15 seconds when I passed her walking. It was like it was meant to be. (long pause) I guess if this is the end of the world, I'm screwed, right? People who kill reverend's wives aren't exactly ushered to the front of the line in Heaven."

--------------------------------

I probably gave too much away with the length of the quote, but it didn't feel right to cut it off any earlier.

-Jon

No, and Yes.

The movie is indeed "Signs", but "Y" is M. Night Shyamalan, the film's director, playing a small but key role, as he does with some of his films.

"X" is Mel Gibson in the role of a former Episcopal priest, Graham Hess, led to question his faith after the loss of his wife in a traffic accident caused by Shyamalan's character.

I chose this quote from the movie because it is very subtle, and vague - probably not very memorable for a lot of viewers. The dialogue is hard to hear, and its importance is partially lost on the viewer until it makes more sense later in context of a flashback sequence later in the film.

I know you had the answer worked out correctly in your head, ... just had the alpha-characters swapped. You know....criss-cross...but that's another movie, entirely.

I officially hand the reigns over to you, Lorinda.

-Jon

Ah, had it backwards. :)

Here's a short one:

You left...just when you were becoming interesting.

I'll take a wide swing on this one.


Is it "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow"?

Strike one, dear Jon. Try again. :)

Hey, while I have you here...why don't you join us for the DVC/UWOL Charity Challenge upstairs? We haven't seen a J Jones film in a long, long time!

I so want to, and have been hoping to get back into the ring for quite a while, but have been unable to get a workable schedule that would allow for it for a long time. I dropped off the map for much of the last 2 years to tend to family medical issues - and then subsequently trying, and sometimes failing to resurrect dormant projects and juggle client deadlines. But after 2010 closes out, my schedule is expected to free up considerably, and I can look forward to jumping into some upcoming challenges.

Good to hear that 2011 sounds less hectic and stressful. Just know that you've been missed.

Guess we should get back to the game! Here's the quote again:

You left...just when you were becoming interesting.

Another quote, same character:

I suddenly remembered my Charlemagne. Let my armies be the rocks and the trees and the birds in the sky...

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade?

I believe that is the movie but I'm trying really hard to block it :-)
