Favorite Quote: "Now listen to me, all of you. You are all condemned men. We keep you alive to serve this ship. So row well, and live."
Favorite Scene: The chariot race of course
#96 Do The Right Thing (1989)
#89 The Sixth Sense (1999)
Bruce Willis, Haley Joel Osment, Toni Collette
My favorite M.Night movie. This was before all the expectations and criticism. This is also one of the few movies that succeeded in keeping me in the dark until the very moment the director wanted me to get it. Great movie.
Favorite Quote: Do you know why you're afraid when you're alone? I do. I do.
Favorite Scene: The moment Malcom Crowe "understands".
Trivia: The Latin phrase Cole speaks in the church when he first meets Malcolm: "De profundis clamo ad te domine" translates to "Out of the depths, I cry to you, Oh Lord." These are the first few words of Psalm 130 in the Book of Psalms.
Would Jessica Like This Movie? Ya, she watches it with me but covers her eyes when it gets violent. Just like Good Fellas.
#89 Bringing Up Baby (1938)
Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant
This movie JUST played last weekend at a theater in Modesto and I missed it.. Jess and I were on our "Babymoon". Ya, that's right. Very pregnant women get whatever they ask for and if they want a babymoon they get a babymoon. Now the baby in this movie is not the kind that one has to pay child support for after one's wife decides she's sick of one. No, this Baby is a Brazilian Leopard who gets loose and needs to be found before it grows up, goes to collage and costs it's father a second fortune after the child support was supposed to end but... sorry, wrong baby again.
