Movie Quote of the Day – Jupiter Ascending, 2015 (dir. Lana & Lilly Wachowski)

Jupiter Jones: Stinger said that you attacked an entitled once.
Caine Wise: Stinger talks too much.
Jupiter Jones: Is it true?
Caine Wise: Does it matter?
Jupiter Jones: Sorry, I get it’s none of my business. I was just trying to understand.
Caine Wise: Look, the truth is I don’t know why I did it. I. . .I don’t even remember doing it. It just happened.
Jupiter Jones: We all do things we can’t explain.
Caine Wise: They said it was in my genes. A defect of my genome engineering.
Jupiter Jones: Could explain a lot of things about me. Like the fact that I have an uncanny ability to fall for men that don’t fall for me. It’s like my internal compass needle points straight at Mr. Wrong. Maybe it’s my genes. Maybe I have defective engineering too. And if that’s the case is there any way to fix it?
Caine Wise: You are royalty now. I’m a splice. You don’t understand what that means, but I have more in common with a dog than I have with you.
Jupiter Jones: I love dogs, I’ve always loved dogs.

Darren Aronofsky’s “Black Swan” – First Look


Darren Aronofsky is certainly one of Hollywood’s most unusual filmmakers. I haven’t seen 1998’s Pi, but I hear it is strange. I’ve only seen 2001’s Requiem For A Dream once because it freaked me out so hard. 2006’s The Fountain was beautifully shot, but not all that well received by critics. 2008’s The Wrestler was brilliant. I still think it should have been up for Best Picture and as much as I loved Sean Penn in Milk, Mickey Rourke should have won that Oscar. Later this year he’s releasing what is being called a “supernatural ballet drama/thriller” starring Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis, Winona Ryder, Sebastian Stan, Barbara Hershey and Vincent Cassel. Today we finally get a peak at the film’s visuals, thanks to USAToday and FirstShowing.net.
