Movie Quote of the Day – The Wolf of Wall Street, 2013 (dir. Martin Scorsese)
Patrick Denham: Let me tell you something else. Honestly – I’m not bullshitting here – this is one of the nicest boats I’ve ever been on. I gotta tell ya.
Jordan Belfort: I bet it is.
Patrick Denham: Hey, you know what I was just thinking, too? The fucking hero that I’m going to be back at the office when the Bureau seizes this fucking boat, because I mean fuckity fuck fuck, Jordan, look at this thing! It’s beautiful! And you’ve got the beautiful girls and everything. It’s wonderful.
Jordan Belfort: [laughing] Alright, get the fuck off my boat.

Calvin Candie: White cake?
Dr. King Schultz: I don’t go in for sweets, thank you.
Calvin Candie: Are you brooding ’bout me getting the best of ya, huh?
Dr. King Schultz: Actually, I was thinking of that poor devil you fed to the dogs today, D’Artagnan. And I was wondering what Dumas would make of all this.
Calvin Candie: Come again?
Dr. King Schultz: Alexander Dumas. He wrote “The Three Musketeers.” I figured you must be an admirer. You named your slave after his novel’s lead character. If Alexander Dumas had been there today, I wonder what he would have made of it?
Calvin Candie: You doubt he’d approve?
Dr. King Schultz: Yes. His approval would be a dubious proposition at best.
Calvin Candie: Soft hearted Frenchy?
Dr. King Schultz: Alexander Dumas is black.
New Trailer For Clint Eastwood’s “J. Edgar”
Words cannot express how much I cannot wait for this movie. This new trailer (watch it here at Apple trailers) makes me want to watch it even more. I pretty much love everything I’ve seen out of Leonardo DiCaprio for the last ten years and Armie Hammer looks to be following up his breakthrough turn in The Social Network last year with another show stopping performance.
The film is set for a November 9th release.

Leonardo DiCaprio – His Best Roles
I thought it would be timely to write about DiCaprio this weekend considering he’s just had his biggest film opening ever. The Christopher Nolan penned and helmed Inception has already made $60.4 mil (that’s more than 2006’s Blood Diamond made in its entire run) and has landed at the top of the box office. 2010 has really been DiCaprio’s year; he’s starred in two of the best films of the year and has given two of the best performances of his career. I’m going to go over some of my favorite and, in my opinion, best roles he’s played over the years.
Three Contenders: Shutter Island, Toy Story 3 and Inception
I feel like 2010 has been a relatively slow year for movies. It’s almost universally acknowledged that this has been one of the worst movie summers ever. There are only about two or three films that have already been released this year that I’ve yet to see that I actually really want to see. That being said, there has also only been three films released this year that are even close to Best Picture quality: Shutter Island, Toy Story 3 and Inception. If the Academy is really going to keep having ten slots in that category, Hollywood is going to have to do a lot better than only three great films in a matter of seven months. I love all three of these films. Toy Story 3 made my whole family cry, including my 59-year-old father. I still can’t decide if I liked Shutter Island more or Inception more. The thing is both movies are full of great performances, but Shutter Island is really about Leo’s performance, whereas Inception felt like a true ensemble piece. I think I’m going to have to see Inception one more time before I can make that decision.
Spoilers may lurk after the cut.
