    "The people in that building, they felt safe. Secure. Just like you feel now. And then an instant later, in an instant, they were gone forever. We needed to have this man to blame. We don't want others, we want one name, and we want it fast. Because it gives us our security back. We can say 'here was the one man, unlike the rest of us, we named him, and he's no more, and his reasons? They're gone too.'…

    “I feel like I’m communicating with Julia Child over space and time on a deep spiritual, mystical level - but, mostly I’m just talking to myself.”

    Some movies make me understand why some people never give the maximum star rating to a movie, or none at all; so that there’s a little headroom for those cinematic experiences that truly transcend any marker of quality… Julie & Julia is one of those movies for me.

    When we say “greater than the sum…

    "How can you talk about money when I'm talking about souls?"

    "God bless Mama, Papa, Captain Midnight, Veronica Lake, and the President of the United States."

    "The whole world is a joke to me."

    "He said he wanted a typical american family. I said we weren't a typical american family."

    "I broke my mother's back three times!!"

    This is the one, the best and my favourite Hitchcock movie, both, objective and subjective. There's just so much. This movie has grown…

    "A lady is a lady when she behaves like one."

    I liked this plenty before she showed up but… no kidding, I was dying to watch this for Margaret O'Brien. She's not of this world and we don't deserve her. I'm not familiar with the story this is based on but it seemed like the soldier element was a major addition but, I'm in the zone as always when I'm doing my year-a-month thing and can see how that might've…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Someone reminded me how much I love this film today (it doesn't take much really) n I figured I should explain here since it's in my 4 favourites… this is just a copy paste of a review I wrote last year when it came out on blu-ray…

    The Little Mermaid II is honestly turning into one of my favourite movies in a very serious way. There are too many abominable reviews of it out there and I've been meaning to…

    "I don't like the way some people treat you, but you don't really help them out, Dinky."

    "I'm beyond men."

    "I wanted this. I really did."
    "It's good to want things."

    Like the hyper-feminine Heathers trampling the flowerbed to Que Sera Sera, the way Winona dresses and acts in the first half of this movie - the kinda sorta love interest Thomas Wilson Brown looks more like a girl than she does - had to have got inside me…
