Watching a movie

Best line of it yet:  “KHAAANNNN!!!”

Guess which one?

Stuck in my head

Watched MST3K the Movie last night, and now every time I see a screen my brain starts going “Normal view. Normal View. Normal VIEW. NORMAL VIEW!”

That’s a great flick. I think my favorite, though, is still either Cave Dwellers or Space Mutiny. Any other fans out there?

“Why is the rum gone” is probably the third or fourth most quoted movie line for me, behind several from The Princess Bride. It just has so many real world applications.

Zombieland Rules

I just watched Zombieland, and was quite taken with the rules.  A little bit of Google-Fu, and I found the full list:

1 Cardio

2 The Double Tap

3 Beware of Bathrooms

4 Wear Seat belts

5 No Attachments

6 The “skillet”

7 Travel Light

8 Get a Kick Ass Partner

9 With your bare hands

10 Don’t Swing Low

11 Use your foot

12 Bounty paper Towels

13 Shake it off

14 Always carry a change of underwear

15 Bowling Ball

16 Opportunity Knocks

17 Don’t be a hero (though some rules are made to be broken)

18 Limber Up

19 Break it up

20 Its a marathon, not a sprint, unless its a sprint, then sprint

21 Avoid Strip clubs

22 When in doubt Know your way out

23 Ziplock

24 use your thumbs

25 Shoot First

26 A little sun screen never hurt anybody

27 Incoming!

28 Double-Knot your shoes

29 The Buddy System

30 pack your stain stick

31 check the back seat

32 Enjoy the little things

33 Swiss army Knife

It was quite entertaining–about on the level of Shaun of the Dead, with a bit less paradoy.  I liked Tallahasee’s Mare’s Leg (but I’m a sucker for it after watching Firefly reruns all these years)–and why did Columbus only have a double barrel?  Anyway, if you don’t mind a bit of gore, it is well worth it.

Update:  I keep running into situations where I say to myself–“Oh, rule 4.”  These things are infinitely applicable.

Best Line in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

Say it with a Sean Connery accent:

“…goose-stepping morons like yourself should try reading books instead of burning them.”

Take that Nazi dogs!

Movie Lines: Gladiator

I watched Gladiator last night, in preparation for the final I just took this afternoon.  And yes, the test was that bad.  But there were two lines that stuck out to me:

1)  “People should know when they are conquered.”

The reason this one hit me, is, I think, because of how the mainstream reacted to the election last year, and what the O-Team seems to think about anyone who doesn’t agree with them.  I get a “We should all agree and work together!” vibe from those people, “and anyone who doesn’t like it should get off their high horse!”  The nature of the system, however, keeps the sides roughly balanced; disagreement is built in.  But I am not obligated to agree with everything or anything–in fact, I won’t! 

2)  “We are docile… we are obedient… we are treacherous.”

Just because I don’t like the way this country is going doesn’t mean that I am actively planning the demise of the system.  However, because I don’t “know that I am conquered,” I will not support what I do not agree with.  I am not actively planning the demise of the system, but…
I am waiting for it. 
And the way things are going, I believe the demise is coming, one way or another
