    I love watch movie. I share here my few favourite Movie:

    My sassy girl
    Gregory's Girl
    The Notebook
  4. The portrayal of Fredo in 1 and 2 is a fantastic one by Frank Cazale. The character development is really great and you know Fredo is doomed because he is weak and inept in a cut throat world.

    "Serenity" is a treasure trove of memorable quotes, as is it's TV predecessor "Firefly". (At least for me)

    Jayne: "Hell, I'll kill a man in a fair fight... or if I think he's gonna start a fair fight, or if he bothers me, or if there's a woman, or if I'm gettin' paid - mostly only when I'm gettin' paid. But these Reavers... last ten years they show up like the bogeyman from stories. Eating people alive? Where's that get fun?"

    Wash: "Can I make a suggestion that doesn't involve violence, or is this the wrong crowd for that?"

    Capt. Malcolm Reynolds: What was that?
    Wash: Did you see that?
    Mal: Was that the primary buffer panel?
    Wash: It did seem to resemble...
    Mal: Did the primary buffer panel just fall off my gorram ship for no apparent reason?
    Wash: [Checks his instruments] Looks like.
    Mal: I thought Kaylee checked the entry couplings. I've a very clear recollection of it.
    Wash: Well, if she doesn't get us some extra flow from the engine room to offset the burn-through, this landing is gonna get pretty interesting.
    Mal: Define "interesting."
    Wash: [Deadpan] Oh God, oh God, we're all gonna die.
    Mal: [Grabs PA microphone] This is the captain. We're having a little problem with our entry sequence, so we may experience some slight turbulence and then... explode.
    [Hangs up microphone]
    Mal: Can you shave the vector?
    Wash: I'm doing it, it's not enough.
    Mal: Well, just get us on the ground.
    Wash: "That part'll happen pretty definitely"
    Jayne: We're gonna explode? I don't wanna explode!

    “I’m the Dude. So that’s what you call me, you know…ah. That, or his dudeness or duder or, you know, El Duderino, if you’re not into the whole brevity thing.”
  9. "How dare you yell cut on my set!"


    "In twenty-two seconds I can break your (expletive deleted) spine. In twenty-two seconds I can pinch your head off like a (expletive deleted) insect and spill it all over the (expletive deleted) pavement. In twenty-two seconds I can put twenty-two bullets into your ridiculous gut. But I seem unable to do in twenty-two seconds is to keep you from (expletive deleted) up my film!"

    ...Eli Cross (Peter O'Toole), The Stunt Man (1980)

  10. Ironically Fredo was the only family member who was supportive of Michael's decision to join the Marines during the war. Then there's the part where Fredo says a Hail Mary just before he is killed. It's never made clear whether he's praying for luck as he always did when fishing or whether the prayer was for himself because he knew he was going to die.

    And it seems that Coppola did an oblique take-off of Fredo death scene in Apocalypse Now where Chef (Frederic Forrest), freaked out by his encounter with the tiger, is babbling "never get off the boat," "never get off the boat."

    You had to get me started:

    Marwood: "I think there's something living in there [the kitchen sink], something alive!" Withnail: "What do you mean, a rat?" Marwood: "It's possible, it's possible..." Withnail: "Then the f*&%#@ will rue the day!"

    Marwood [writing to journal] : "Even a stopped clock gives the right time twice a day. For once I'm inclined to agree with Withnail - we are indeed living in the arena of the unwell."
