Oldboy (2003)
You really are the very monster I created, aren't you? But you won't find out the "why" of this if you kill me. Fifteen years of being curious would go to waste.



Brutal, violent and full of twists, Oldboy is about a man that was kept imprisoned for 15 years without having any idea why. After he is released he tries to find the one that locked him away and get revenge.

The Machinist (2004)
A little guilt goes a long way.



The Machinist is about guilt and about what it does to you. Christian Bale's acting is simply amazing.

Remember, remember, the Fifth of November, the Gunpowder Treason and Plot. I know of no reason why the Gunpowder Treason should ever be forgot... But what of the man? [..]A man that I will never forget.

Rewatch

Do you want to know why I use a knife? Guns are too quick. You can't savor all the... little emotions. In... you see, in their last moments, people show you who they really are. So in a way, I know your friends better than you ever did.



One of my favorite movies. The acting is brilliant and so is the story. In my opinion it is the best part of the trilogy. Also, the Joker is one of my favorite characters played by one of my favorite actors, Heath Ledger.

A hero can be anyone. Even a man doing something as simple and reassuring as putting a coat around a little boy's shoulder to let him know that the world hadn't ended.



I was a bit disappointed, I expected a better ending. Also, Bane wasn't as good a villain as the Joker was in The Dark Knight, but The Dark Knight Rises is still much better than the average superhero movie.

Rewatch

No, I don't think I will kiss you, although you need kissing, badly. That's what's wrong with you. You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how.



Started watching it at school, but didn't manage to finish it. I'm still in love with Scarlett and her passionate way of living.

The Avengers (2012)
You really have got a lid on it, haven't you? What's your secret? Mellow jazz? Bongo drums? Huge bag of weed?



It was good, but not as good as I expected after all the hype surrounding it.

Short people have long faces, and long people have short faces. Big people have little humor, and little people have no humor at all.

Sin City (2005)
The night's as hot as hell. It's a lousy room in a lousy part of a lousy town - I'm staring at a goddess. She's telling me she wants me. I'm not going to waste one more minute wondering how I've gotten this lucky. She smells like angels ought to smell, the perfect woman... the Goddess. Goldie. She says her name is Goldie.



Loved it.

I was ruined by a king like you once. I replaced his queen. An old woman. And in time I too would have been replaced. Men use women. They ruin us and when they are finished with us they toss us to the dogs like scraps.



I loved the visuals and liked the story, but Kristen Stewart's acting and lack of facial expressions was as bad as it could be.

Ted (2012)
No matter how big a splash you make in this world whether you're Corey Feldman, Frankie Muniz, Justin Bieber or a talking teddy bear, eventually, nobody gives a shit.



I'm not the biggest fan of comedies because they are very cliché, but this one was a little bit better that most.

It's just murder. All God's creatures do it. You look in the forests and you see species killing other species, our species killing all species including the forests, and we just call it industry, not murder.

You are the husband they never had! You are that dreamboat guy that never came along!



Watched it with my friends and we were all like: "why?..".

We knew the girls were really women in disguise, that they understood love, and even death, and that our job was merely to create the noise that seemed to fascinate them.

I'm lucky. I feel lucky because it's wrong, Danny. It's wrong and it was eating me up, it was going to kill me. And I kept asking myself all the time, how did I buy into this shit? It was because I was pissed off, and nothing I ever did ever took that feeling away.



This goes straight to my favorite movie list.

Brave (2012)
There are those who say fate is something beyond our command. That destiny is not our own, but I know better. Our fate lives within us, you only have to be brave enough to see it.



Finally a curly-haired Disney heroine. I've been waiting for that ever since I was born :). It's a good life lesson.

Hubert: I wasn't born to have a mother.
Julie: Maybe your mother wasn't born to have a son.




J'ai tue ma mere is a brilliant story about a 16 gay French boy who's in conflict with his mother.
AnameA's rating:
Sam: Why do I and everyone I love pick people who treat us like we're nothing?
Charlie: We accept the love we think we deserve.




I think that The Perks of Being a Wallflower is exactly what I needed now as I am a confused teenager myself. I loved it so muched that I had tears in my eyes during the whole movie.

Ruby Sparks (2012)
Naming your dog after him? It's a little disrespectful. Think about it. You're a novelist. You think this guy's the greatest. So you name your dog after him to cut him down to size. This way, you can put him on a leash... and yell "Bad Scotty" and feel all superior because you pee inside. Kill your idols, man. I'm all for it.


I hadn't watched a rom-com willingly for a long time, but this one I loved! What would you do if the character you had written came to life?

Hope. It is the only thing stronger than fear.



It could've been so much better. I think that the actual game should've been longer and the preparation a little bit shorter.

Chocolat (2001)
I think that we can't go around... measuring our goodness by what we don't do. By what we deny ourselves, what we resist, and who we exclude. I think... we've got to measure goodness by what we *embrace*, what we create... and who we include.

August Rush (2007)
Listen. Can you hear it? The music. I can hear it everywhere. In the wind... in the air... in the light. It's all around us. All you have to do is open yourself up. All you have to do... is listen.



Beautiful story.

Casino Royale (2006)

When someone says "We've got people everywhere", you expect it to be hyperbole! Lots of people say that. Florists use that expression. It doesn't mean that they've got somebody working for them inside the bloody room!

Thomas Listen. Listen. There are times when life calls out for a change. A transition. Like the seasons. Our spring was wonderful, but summer is over now and we missed out on autumn. And now all of a sudden, it's cold, so cold that everything is freezing over. Our love fell asleep, and the snow took it by surprise. But if you fall asleep in the snow, you don't feel death coming. Take care

You gotta hand it to the old girl. I never saw nobody buffalo Bill the way she buffaloed Bill. Bill used to think she was so damn smart. I tried to tell him... "Bill, she's just smart for a blonde."

I was a slut. There will always be a part of me that is dirty and sloppy, but I like that, just like all the other parts of myself. I can forgive. Can you say the same for yourself, fucker? Can you forgive? Are you capable of that?

Dr. Spivey: Well, the real reason that you've been sent over here is because they wanted you to be evaluated... to determine whether or not you are mentally ill. This is the real reason. Why do you think they might think that?
McMurphy: Well, as near as I can figure out, it's 'cause I, uh, fight and fuck too much.

Cloud Atlas (2012)
And all becomes clear. Wish I could make you see this brightness. Don't worry, all is well. All is so perfectly, damnably well. I understand now, that boundaries between noise and sound are conventions. All boundaries are conventions, waiting to be transcended. One may transcend any convention, if only one can first conceive of doing so. Moments like this, I can feel your heart beating as clearly as I feel my own, and I know that separation is an illusion. My life extends far beyond the limitations of me.

Amélie (2001)
So, my little Amélie, you don't have bones of glass. You can take life's knocks. If you let this chance pass, eventually, your heart will become as dry and brittle as my skeleton. So, go get him, for Pete's sake!

Life of Pi (2012)
I suppose in the end, the whole of life becomes an act of letting go, but what always hurts the most is not taking a moment to say goodbye.
