    From Dusk Till Dawn

    “I may be a bastard but I’m not a fucking bastard” is probably one of the better closing lines of dialogue to any Tarantino screenplay. Like many I’ve come to prefer the first half but the whole film occupies a special place in my memory as one of the first hard R films I’ve ever seen and it holds up still as a wild genre mash up. George Clooney will always be Seth Gecko to me.

  • Jaws

    They needed a bigger boat.

    Did you find your Indies, John? You shall.

    I may have sailed past them.

    God, perhaps one of the most devastatingly beautiful exchanges in all of cinema. A Malick masterpiece.

    The Empire Strikes Back

    “‘The Empire Strikes Back' is the best of three Star Wars films, and the most thought-provoking. After the space opera cheerfulness of the original film, this one plunges into darkness and even despair, and surrenders more completely to the underlying mystery of the story. It is because of the emotions stirred in ‘Empire' that the entire series takes on a mythic quality that resonates back to the first and ahead to the third. This is the heart.“ -Roger Ebert

    Happy 40th anniversary.
