Quotables - Quiz #1

Greetings everyone! :-)

I originally planned on doing a movie review on a quotable movie, but I like to be different and random, so instead I am going to put a self-made quiz on here. It's my quotables quiz! All you have to do is name the movie that each quote is from (most are from my personal dvd collection, so those who know me well, will have the advantage). Give yourself 1 point for each right answer (I'll post those later) and whoever wins, well....I'll figure out some fun interweb gift to give. Happy quizzing!

Name that Movie!

'I'm going to go home and have some sex!' 'Harry, you're going to go home and puke!' 'Well, that'll be fun too!'


'You know you're not as scary as you think you are!'


'What is it in us that seeks the truth? Is it our minds or is it our hearts?'


'We know that all were doing is breeding a whole new generation of buyers and sellers, BUYERS AND SELLERS! Pimps and whores, PIMPS AND WHORES! and indoctrinating them into a life long hell of debt and indecision!'


'We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained we must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory will swell when again touched, as surely they will be by the better angels of our nature.'


'Who would think something like this would happen from harmless flares and roman candles?'


'You know what they say: People in glass houses sink sh-sh-ships.'


'Do you really think you have a chance against us, Mr. Cowboy?'


'Don't think it's your's just because you marked it with your urine!'


'Two years, two hundred and sixty-four days and this morning.'

I hope you did well! Some of them are quite obscure..but I still love it! Enjoy!

Conversing about Movie Review #2

So..I wanna do a second review...obvious!

I'm not sure what movie to do this time,...I was thinking of "quoteworthy movies."

I would like some response on your most quoteworthy of movies, generally ones you absolutely love is great. One of my personal favs. would be "The Boondock Saints;" however, I don't know if I'm quite ready for that review.

So...converse away...

Movie Review #1

Although I received some very good suggestions from the "crowd" of people that read my blog...I decided to choose one of my favorites...but still kind of random! So, with no further adieu, I give first movie review...

This review may contain spoilers - I apologize...and am willing to take constructive criticism on how I can improve for future reviews! Thanks!

Release Date: January 30, 2009
Director: Pierre Morel
Genre: Action, Crime, Drama, Thriller
Runtime: 91 Minutes
Actors: Liam Neeson, Famke Janssen, Maggie Grace, and more!

Think "The Bourne Identity" meets "Trade". Let me explain! Taken is an action-packed movie about Bryan (Liam Neeson) who, after retiring from the Secret Service, moves to California to be closer to his daughter Kim (Maggie Smith), who lives with her mother, Lenore (Famke Janssen) and wealthy stepfather. Now that you are settled into the foundation of the story!

You soon find out that Kim has planned a trip to Europe with her friend Amanda, but in order for her to go, Bryan has to sign papers to allow his minor daughter to travel out of the country. Mistake number 1! Bryan ex-military background comes in full force as he believes this is not a good idea and tries to convince them otherwise "they do not know the world, the way he does." Bryan is not successful though, and decides to let his daughter have her freedom!

The next thing you know, Kim & Amanda (who's ridiculously idiotic) are in France, heading to their hotel. They begin chatting with perfect strangers (Mistake number 2) and Amanda gives way too much information. Without giving the full story away, the men come to take the girls, which is the predominant scene of "they will take you." Now they have released the boiling fury of a overprotective and very well-trained father!

Action and chaos ensue, as the movie opens the door to a sex trafficking world that is all too realistic for one person to handle.

My feelings on this movie....amazing, awesome, spectacular...great! I mean Liam Neeson is wonderful and I was astonished at how well he was able to portray a charactor of such fury and wrath. I am used to the normal characters of scholarly attributes, wisdom, and leaders...not necessarily let's kick some butt (Jason Bourne Style). I also appreciated the fact that this movie took the chance of exposing in cinematic glory the reality of sex trafficking. I believe this is a huge problem in our world, and too many are afraid to bring awareness to it, because it's too risky to speak of.

Overall Rating: 5 Stars!

Great Performance, Excellent Action Sequences, and not too long that you get tired of it.

Have you seen it? Let me know your thoughts!
