That's going back a way. Thanks, Tink.

@ Didge:

I love old film noir flicks.  It the days of strict censorship, they had great double entendres in the lines, like in this one, starting at 1:36.  :)

Good fun. :)

Unforgettable Bacall and Bogart - a great pair!

Looks as though the kid's listening. Hope he didn't follow in his father's footsteps. :)

by

That wasn't his father. And it was the kid that said it, about his mom's piece of crap boyfriend.

by

You sucked me in that one. Sounds like a smart kid (if you don't mind a smidgin of homicide in his upbringing). :)

by

He's just Southern.

Slingblade with Billy Bob Thornton and Lucas Black. Trippy movie !

The thing I liked was I never had any problem understanding anyone's accent.

After watching Starwars Rogue One today I have added a new favorite to my list.

"Rebellions are built on hope." - Cassian Andor, Rogue One

by

Pity we didn't have that to go on in the lead-up to November 8. That was most certainly a rebellion. Lots of hope, probably unfounded.

by

@ Didge:

I seem to remember something about "hope and change" about 8 years ago.

But the hubris (among other things) spoiled it.

There's always promise and it's almost invariably followed with disappointment. :(

@ Didge:

Yes, when politicians (aka professional liars) are involved.  :angry:

Didn't see that one but the quote reminded me of Independence Day: "Welcome to Earth!"

Yeah, you have to say that from time to time.  :D

There are many, and regarding movies in English, I liked some hilarious statements, for instance:

"I don't want to talk about it." (after a hilarious mishap)

(The Gods Must Be Crazy)


and a rather famous quote:

"(Well) - nobody is perfect".


(Some Like It Hot)


by

I remember that first quote. You're right, it was hilarious. We watched both those movies a few months ago and enjoyed the reruns. :)

by

Lol - I am still laughing at the hilarious scenes in The Gods Must Be Crazy (No 1 was the very best, but No 2 was funny too). And I saw them several times.

:)

by

I kept a copy of both when they were shown on TV. We watch the every two or three years and they still make us laugh. It's just good fun. 

by

Lol - I don't have videos left, but since years, certain TV channels are showing about once every 1 - 2 years several of these good old parodies. Furthermore, there are lots of anniversaries and hommages to be added.

You heard probably that several great names of the movie and music scenes passed away this year, like, lately, Michèle Morgan and Claude Gensac, Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher, etc., just to cite a few.

The Day the Earth Stood Still.  

Many years ago I used it as a closing statement in my signature block. I was told by upper management, in all seriousness, I wasn't allowed to use religious quotes in my signature block. They thought I was writing "Latin".

by

LOL!  :D


by

Religious quote? You must have been working for a genius. 

It's one of those phrases that means nothing and everything, both at the same time. Strange but effective. 

by

Love it.

From The Wizard of Oz, what put the ape in apricot? What makes the hot in Hottentot so hot.... Courage!!

by

The Wizard of Oz was released in Oz a couple of weeks after my third birthday (I just looked it up). My sister took me to see it but I don't remember a darned thing. Thanks for the quote.

by

Dang Didge!!! how could you not know The Wizard of Oz.... So what did you grow up in woop woop?

by

I thought Woop Woop was a uniquely Australian town (along with Bandywallop and Wheelabarabak). 

(I mistyped that and my spell checker suggested uniquer. How the heck cany anything be uniquer? It either is or it isn't. Crazy computer.)
