As I am moving out, and the Internet connection is not going to be as good as it should be, I will not watch much films, and only have time to watch my tv series and comment on them each week.

Hilary and Jackie

I cannot imagine how hard it must be to be compared to a sister, all the pressure and competition. When Jackie said she wants to sleep with Hilary’s husband, just because they share everything, that was just devastating. Hilary finally allows her sister to do so. What a beautiful and extremely painful movie. She is sleeping with her sister’s husband and she is mad at her for sleeping with her own husband.

I’ve given you everything you’ve asked for. For everything you’ve asked for I said yes.

The truth is you’re not special.

She can’t possibly be Jewish, she’s blonde.

If you think that being an ordinary person is any easier than being an extraordinary one, you’re wrong.

The Hours

There was so much beautiful pain in this film.

It would be wonderful to say you regretted it. It would be easy. But what does it mean? What does it mean to regret when you have no choice? It’s what you can bear. There it is no one’s going to forgive me. It was death. I chose life.

There are times when you don’t belong and you think you’re going to kill yourself.

I remember one morning getting up at dawn, there was such a sense of possibility. You know, that feeling? And I remember thinking to myself: So, this is the beginning of happiness. This is where it starts. And of course there will always be more. It never occurred to me it wasn’t the beginning. It was happiness. It was the moment. Right then.

But I still have to face the hours.

Always giving the parties to kill the silence.

Would you be angry If I died? I think I’m only staying alive to satisfy you.

I’m saying that even crazy people like to be asked.

It is possible to die, if it is a choice between enrichment and death, I chose death.

You cannot find peace by avoiding life.

Carnage

Best film of the year and Jodie Foster, ladies and gentlemen, and that performance, enough said.

Why can’t things be easier? You know? Why does everything have to be so exhausting.

At least our kid isn’t a little wimpy ass faggot.

The truth is that nobody here cares.

I’m glad our son kicked the shit out of your son!

You’d known her 15 minutes and you already knew she was fake?

I saw your friend Jane Fonda on TV the other day. Made me wanna run out and buy a Ku Klux Klan poster.

I don’t have a sense of humour and I don’t want one!

She doesn’t care any more than you do.
Mmm, that’s true.

Don’t you tell me about Africa. I know all about suffering in Africa.

How could you be so openly despicable?
Because I feel like it. I fell like being openly despicable!

Zachary is not a maniac!
Yes, he is.

Nobody told you to listen to my conversation.
Well nobody said you should have it under my nose.

I got no patience for this touchy feely bullshit.

I am a short-tempered son of a bitch.
We all are.

She keeps calling me a doctor.

It could be the cobbler. That much I know.
It’s not the cobbler.
Do you think it was the cobbler?
Of course it was.

9.5/10

The Beaver

The scene when Meredith is trapped between her son being hit and her husband depression. She has been very understanding, it is obvious she snapped. What I cannot believe is why did not she call the doctor earlier? The writing is exceptionally good. Oh how people underestimate depression. How his mind is his biggest enemy. The cutting  the arm off was absolutely unexpected and so real and good at the same time. How we see his son is following his fathers steps.

Probably sleeping, that’s all he does.

Nobody wants to feel pain anymore.

8/10

Little Man Tate

The kid is a little autistic, if you ask me and the character of Jane is super annoying, she just purposely wants to take the kid away from his mother and she is basically acticng all ‘I’m your Mommy.’ and Henry Junior Connic character was first super sweet and then turned out to be a jerk. Other than that, amazing film.

Can I have a coke?
Absolutely not.
Kid pukes.
Now can I have a coke?
In a fridge.

The Iron Lady

Meryl’s performance is astonishing. The film itself is a little chaotic, the flashbacks appear to often. I think it should be more like I admire how t starts with first, what is now part and then we go to the past, I do believe the story would be more moving if after all her success we were hit with the present. Switching the voices and learning how to sound like Margaret require a lot of practice, and not everyone would be able o do that. What I cannot understand about Meryl’s choices of roles, is how lately she goes from dramatic ones to comedies. I always feel like she’s wasting her incredible talent in comedies. Films like, Devil Wears Prada, Mamma Mia, Julia and Julie, It’s Complicated and now Springs. After Carnage, my second favourite film this year and a well deserved Oscar.

9/10

Erin Brockovich

The love part was a little too much, other than that a very inspirational story and a good film. I’m a fast learner. Show me in a lab once and I’ve got it down.

For the first time in my life, I got people respecting me. Please, don’t ask me to give it up.

Oh, you fucking piece of CRAP with no signal!

Ed, have a fucking cup of coffee.

I don’t need pity, I need a paycheck. And I’ve looked. But when you’ve spent the past six years raising babies its real hard to find somebody who pays worth a damn, are ya getting every word of this down honey or am I talking too fast?

Are you going to be something else that I have to survive? Because… to tell you the truth… I’m not up to it.

NOT PERSONAL! That is my WORK, my SWEAT, and MY TIME AWAY FROM MY KIDS! IF THAT IS NOT PERSONAL, I DON’T KNOW WHAT IS!

Annabelle Daniels: 714-454-9346. 10 years old, 11 in May. Lived on the plume since birth. Wanted to be a synchronized swimmer so she spent every minute she could in the PG&E pool. She had a tumor in her brain stem detected last November, an operation on Thanksgiving, shrunk it with radiation after that. Her parents are Ted & Rita. Ted’s got Crohn’s disease, Rita has chronic headaches, and nausea, and underwent a hysterectomy last fall. Ted grew up in Hinkley. His brother Robbie, and his wife May and their five children: Robbie Jr, Martha, Ed, Rose & Peter *also* lived on the plume. Their number is 454-9554. You want their diseases?

Well, um, seeing as how I have no brains or legal expertise, and Ed here was losing all faith in the system, am I right? I just went out there and performed sexual favors. Six hundred and thirty-four blow jobs in five days… I’m really quite tired.

Like I was saying, I thought that the number you proposed was inappropriate, so I increased it.

7/10

North Country

I was nicely surprised with this one. I was shocked how they made it seem like the guy raped her, and at the end we find out she was raped by a teacher. The son pissed me off through the entire film, ungrateful son calling his mother a whore, that was just really hard to look at.

8.5/10

Frozen River

A baby in that bag, I did not see that one coming. The thing is, the film still does not have enough suspense, but still is very good. The kid burned the house down. The ending was a twist, she gave the kids away, that was just surprising. The film would be better if the kid died.

Count it.

8/10

Winter’s Bone

It was fine, until the torture porn started, aka finding her father’s body, that’s when the film got excellent.

What are we ever gonna do with you, baby girl?
Kill me I guess.
That idea’s been said already. Got any others?
Help me. Nobody’s said that idea yet, have they?

Plain Truth

Boring with a nice twist at the end.

5/10

Breathless

The opening, Deter like, which is always good, though this one may be a little too Deter like. As a huge horror fan I enjoyed it just a little too much, the humour is good and the film is simply prefect, until the third act, when it all falls apart, when the private detective comes and ruins the story entirely. The film would be so much better if it just ended like they cleaned everything up and escaped, or got caught and shot the police man and then escaped. I really enjoyed Kelli’s character, more than Lorna. Tiny was just excellent, and when she started cutting Dale up, that was just breathtaking. The self defence scene was great though. I liked the idea that Tiny would kill them all. Am going to buy it on DVD and replay the first two acts.

I didn’t think there was that much money in the whole state of Texas.

Oh my God, Lorna, Oh my God.

Holy Jesus, Dale’s dead.

We’ve got a hell of a situation on our hands, Lorna.

Now, that’s a bit better.
Better? That bag does not change the fact that there’s a dead man underneath it.

We’re in Texas, there are no accidents, there’s alive and there’s dead.

I didn’t kill nobody.

What happened?
Bugs.
Bugs? No kiddin.
Never knew bugs could do that.
Earth to earth, dust to dust, all that.

With the turkey knife?

I ain’t cutting no man into pieces.

You what?

Hell of a good time we havin, ah?

I guess I always kinda liked cutting stuff up.

Does blood make me look fat?

Instead there’s poor old Dale… While you gals are having the time of your lives.

Figured it was self defence.

Abso-lutely.

Even a good woman has got a breaking point.

How do you think you’re gonna get out of this one?

The Grey

The plane crash was intriguing, it was very smart of him to fasten all three seatbelts. You’re gonna die, that’s what happening, sounded a lot like ‘You’re are about to be kidnapped.’ This is Fuck City, population 5 and dwindling. There are many beautiful scenes, the last scene when he’s looking at all the photos in the wallets, really moving. The way I see it, he died, I do not believe the ending means he won over the wolf and is resting, he’s dying along with the wolf, that is what happened. I do not like the idea of purgatory some people are giving, this is not lost people. He did not commit suicide, they all suffered and were killed by wolves. The lucky ones, died in plane crush. The title does not mean purgatory, it means hanging between life and the inevitable death, because they all are going to die. In the beautiful mountains, in the cold, eaten by wolves.

Once more into the fray. Into the last good fight I’ll ever know. Live and die on this day. Live and die on this day.

Do something. Do something. You phony prick fraudulent mother fucker. Do something! Come on! Prove it! Fuck faith! Earn it! Show me something real! I need it now. Not later. Now! Show me and I’ll believe in you until the day I die. I swear. I’m calling on you. I’m calling on you! Fuck it. I’ll do it myself.

We’re going to get a large branch and sharpen the end of it, and we’re going to shove it up this thing’s ass. Then we’re going to eat it.

Who do you love? Let them take you.

Don’t move. Stare right back at them.

Fate didn’t give a fuck. Dead is dead.

There’s not a second that goes by when I’m not thinking of you in some way. I want to see your face. Feel your hands in mine. Feel you against me. But I know that will never be. You left me, and I can’t get you back… I move like I imagine the damned do, cursed. I feel like it’s only a matter of time… I don’t know why I’m writing this, I don’t know what can come of it. I know I can’t get you back. I don’t know why this has happened to us. I feel like it’s me. Bad luck. Poison. I’ve stopped doing this world any real good.

I got a book. It’s called “We’re all fucked”. It’s a best seller.

A job at the end of the world. A salaried killer for a big petroleum company. I don’t know why I did half the things I’ve done, but I know this is where I belong, surrounded by my own. Ex-cons, fugitives, drifters, ass-holes. Men unfit for mankind.

It’s good. It’s good that it hurts.
It’s good?
It’s good, yeah.
Oh well then I’m fuckin’ fabulous.

I just had the clearest thought. I’m done. I’m done.

Is that it? You’re just gonna sit there? Is that what you want?
Yeah.
After what we survived?
That’s exactly why. What I got waiting for me back there? I’m gonna sit on a drill all day. Get drunk all night. That’s my life. Turn around and look at that. I feel like that’s all for me. How do I beat that. When will it ever be better? I can’t explain it.
