  1. What was the last really quotable movie?

    Damn. And it's so much better in its original form, too.
  2. What was the last really quotable movie?

    It's hard to define what I mean, but I think there's a difference between films that can be quoted simply because everyone knows them and the lines are iconic, and films where the lines themselves are actually imminently quotable. Of the above, only "Leviooosa" strikes be as quotable on its own. Like pretty much everything in Big Lebowski and Sneakers does. As I said, hard to define, and perhaps subjective, though it feels like there's at least a little more to it than pure personal preference.
  3. What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Older Films)

    Yes, thank you! (Although I mistrust anyone who watches this as pure fun entertainment)
  4. What was the last really quotable movie?

    I posit that's more to do with the relative obscurity of the film than with it's quotability. "Really good noodles." "You're a fucking inanimate object!"
  5. What is the last Television series you watched?

    Hinds? AND Harris? I think I'll have to watch this.

    So you're saying Fight Club is a bad adaptation simply because it manages to do that and still succeed?
  7. What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Older Films)

    Yes. So? Fight Club does that. It even manages to do that while staying 100% true to the book - which isn't generally necessary, and usually not possible, but in this case it works. It's a spot on adaptation and at the same time it renders the book virtually redundant. Beat that.
  8. What was the last really quotable movie?

    I don't see how JP is anywhere near as quotable as Sneakers and The Big Lebowski. Those are my big international two. There's an Austrian movie called Muttertag (mother's day) that's so full of classic one liners that nearly everybody here is quoting it regularly, sometimes without even noticing. There are probably some people now who quote it regularly without actually having seen it. Must be something about the 90s? Sneakers - 1992 (Jurassic Park - 1993) Muttertag - 1993 The Big Lebowski - 1998
  9. What Are Your Favorite Single Shots in a Movie?

    I think its smugness is an essential part of the concept. The score is good, yes. It's also perhaps the best film adaptation of a book I know. Because it's exactly the book. Nearly all the dialogue from the book is there, and everything that happens in it, except for two short passages that are not in the film (one of which was scripted but cut) and a changed ending (not for the worse). I'm a fan of Chuck Palahniuk, but Fight Club was probably the least engaging book I've read by him, simply because knowing the film, it read like the script.
