Movie Madness Monday: the inaugural edition
I am trying to cheer myself up, so I'm going to invent a new blog game for all 10 of you out there who still come around to see what the crazy lady is saying lately. I'm calling it Movie Madness Monday.
Each Monday I will pick a movie and sprinkle in a few of my favorite quotes. You then stop your damn lurking and contribute a quote of your own, from the same movie, if possible. I will not tell you the name of the movie until Wednesday. Now, you could cheat and type the quotes into a search engine, but that would be no fun.
I will start off easy, since this is the inaugural edition.
"We'll never survive."
"Nonsense, you're only saying that because no one ever has."
"We are men of action. Lies do not become us."
"Your ears you keep, and I'll tell you why. So that every shriek of every child at seeing your hideousness will be yours to cherish, every babe that weeps at your approach, every woman who cries out: "Dear God, what is that thing?" will echo in your perfect ears. That is what "to the pain" means. It means I leave you in anguish, wallowing in freakish misery, forever."
Wednesday Update: The movie is: The Princess Bride!
If you have not seen this one, you simply must run --RUN-- to the nearest video store and grab yourself a copy. For some reason, teachers seem to be especially fond of this film. What's it got?
The Grandson: A book?
Grandpa: That's right. When I was your age, television was called books. And this is a special book. It was the book my father used to read to me when I was sick, and I used to read it to your father. And today I'm gonna read it to you.
The Grandson: Has it got any sports in it?
Grandpa: Are you kidding? Fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles...
The Grandson: Doesn't sound too bad. I'll try to stay awake.
Grandpa: Oh, well, thank you very much, very nice of you. Your vote of confidence is overwhelming.
You can still contribute quotes-- it's been great fun so far!
Let the games begin!
