Movie Quote of the Day – The Kids Are All Right, 2010 (dir. Lisa Cholodenko)


the_kids_are_all_right

Jules: I need to say something. It’s no big secret your mom and I are in hell right now, and, uh. . . bottom line is, marriage is hard. It’s really fucking hard. Just two people slogging through the shit, year after year, getting older, changing. It’s a fucking marathon, okay? So, sometimes, you know, you’re together so long, that you just. . .you stop seeing the other person. You just see weird projections of your own junk. Instead of talking to each other, you go off the rails and act grubby and make stupid choices, which is what I did. And I feel sick about it because I love you guys, and I love your mom, and that’s the truth. Sometimes you hurt the ones you love the most. I don’t know why. You know, if I read more Russian novels, then. . . Anyway, I just wanted to say how sorry I am for what I did. I hope you’ll forgive me eventually. Thank you.

 

Movie Quote of the Day – The End of the Affair, 1999 (dir. Neil Jordan)


Maurice Bendrix: I’m jealous of this stocking.
Sarah Miles: Why?
Maurice Bendrix: Because it does what I can’t. Kisses your whole leg. And I’m jealous of this button.
Sarah Miles: Poor, innocent button.
Maurice Bendrix: It’s not innocent at all. It’s with you all day. I’m not.
Sarah Miles: I suppose you’re jealous of my shoes?
Maurice Bendrix: Yes.
Sarah Miles: Why?
Maurice Bendrix: Because they’ll take you away from me.

Movie Quote of the Day – The Lost World: Jurassic Park, 1997 (dir. Steven Spielberg)


Eddie Carr: Who’s hurt, what do you need?
Dr. Ian Malcolm: Rope.
Eddie Carr: Rope. Anything else?
Dr. Ian Malcolm: Yeah, three double cheeseburgers with everything.
Nick Van Owen: No onions on mine!
Dr. Sarah Harding:  And an apple turnover!

Johnny Depp and Julianne Moore – Where’s Their Oscar Already!?


These are two performers who have almost consistently given amazing performances for nearly the last two decades. They’ve gotten some nominations sure, but only for a handful of their work. Also in the last two decades many actors and actresses with lesser talent who gave perhaps one, or two in the case of Hilary Swank, phenomenal performances have received numerous nominations and wins. Paul Newman had to wait nearly 40 years for a win, as did Jack Palance, so I’m sure Johnny Depp and Julianne Moore will get their due sometime. Of course, that’s not necessarily true either. Just ask Deborah Kerr, Richard Burton or Peter O’Toole. That being said, I’d like to discuss the roles for which these two performers were nominated for Oscar. Ideally, I’d have liked to talk about every performance in which they should have been nominated, but that would take all day.
