Emma Bovary: The longer I live, the more clearly I feel that, on the whole, life is a disappointment.

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.

 

15 Breakthrough Performers of 2010


Many of the stars on last year’s list continued to dominate cinema in 2010; and just like last year a few of the stars on this year’s list have been working for quite some time, but in 2010 they’re finally getting their due.

Andrew Garfield made his debut in 2007 in the not-well received Lions For Lambs and the under-seen Boy A. Last year he was fabulous in Terry Gilliam’s The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, sadly that too went a little under the radar. This year, however, Garfield had two stand-out performances: as Tommy in the much-debated adaptation of Never Let Me Go and as Eduardo Saverin in David Fincher Best Picture contender The Social Network. Garfield has received multiple nominations for his performance in the latter and is widely considered a front-runner for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination next week. He’s also been named the new Spiderman, which has begun filming already and is due out in theaters in 2012.

New Poster for “Jane Eyre”


I’m not really sure how I feel about another adaptation of Jane Eyre. I have seen eight, yes EIGHT, adaptations of this story. It is one of my all-time favorite books, one that I have read multiple times. Once upon a time I rated all the Jane Eyres based on overall adaptation and also based on their respective Mr. Rochesters (Timothy Dalton is my favorite). Anyways, this version is set to open in March 11, 2011 and stars up-and-coming starlet Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland, The Kids Are All Right) and  Michael Fassbender (Inglourious Basterds). I do really love Fassbender and this poster is wonderful, but I’m still a little doubtful that another adaptation is necessary.
