Pic of the Day: “You just shot an unarmed man.” “He should have armed himself if he’s gonna decorate his saloon with my friend.” (25th Anniversary)

Pic of the Day: “Brothers and sisters, I am here to tell you that I charge the white man. I charge the white man with being the greatest murderer on earth. I charge the white man with being the greatest kidnapper on earth. There is no place in this world that this man can go and say he created peace and harmony. Everywhere he’s gone, he’s created havoc. Everywhere he’s gone, he’s created destruction. So I charge him. I charge him with being the greatest kidnapper on this earth! I charge him with being the greatest murderer on this earth! I charge him with being the greatest robber and enslaver on this earth! I charge the white man with being the greatest swine-eater on this earth. The greatest drunkard on this earth! He can’t deny the charges! You can’t deny the charges! We’re the living proof of those charges! You and I are the proof. You’re not an American, you are the victim of America.” (25th Anniversary)

Pic of the Day: “I don’t gotta sit here and listen to this shit.” “You certainly don’t, pal, ’cause the good news is – you’re fired. The bad news is – you’ve got, all of you’ve got just one week to regain your jobs starting with tonight. Starting with tonight’s sit. Oh? Have I got your attention now? Good. ‘Cause we’re adding a little something to this month’s sales contest. As you all know, first prize is a Cadillac Eldorado. Anyone wanna see second prize? Second prize is a set of steak knives. Third prize is you’re fired. Get the picture? You laughing now? You got leads. Mitch and Murray paid good money, get their names to sell them; you can’t close the leads you’re given, you can’t close shit. You ARE shit! Hit the bricks, pal, and beat it ’cause you are going OUT!” (25th Anniversary)


2017: The Year in Reviews (Part II)

Summer’s over. Time for the second batch of reviews.

I’m doing remarkably well so far. I’m about on pace with where I was at this time last year. Which is insane, because I didn’t skip a single movie last year. This year, I skipped two right off the bat. Granted, I’ve only skipped two more since then, and four isn’t that bad a total. I’m only on pace to skip five all year, which feels lower than any other year besides last year. The point is I’m still on a crazy pace without trying nearly as hard as I was last year.

You guys know the drill by now — quick thoughts and ratings that get used later when I wrap everything up in December. First batch went up end of April and the final batch will go up right before we begin the wrap-up.

Now for the moment you’ve all been waiting for, my review of Captain Underpants: (more…)

Pic of the Day: ♫ “Prince Ali! / Fabulous he! / Ali Ababwa / Genuflect / Show some respect / Down on one knee! / Now, try your best to stay calm / Brush up your sunday salaam / The come and meet his spectacular coterie.” ♫ (25th Anniversary)

Pic of the Day: “Your thoughts are your own property, Martin, but keep them to yourself.”


Image

Pic of the Day: “Do you know what marriage is?” “Hmm, you tell me, and see if we’re thinking of the same thing.” “Marriage is when the woman tells the man to take off his pajamas… and it’s because, she wants to send them to the laundry.”


Image

Pic of the Day: “This isn’t going to have a happy ending.”


Image

Pic of the Day: “Whoever would have thought that you two could have killed each other.”


Image

Pic of the Day: “Do you have any idea what it’s like knowing my real brother and mother spending every day of their lives looking for me? Huh? How every day my real brother screams my name? Can you imagine the pain they must be in not knowing where I am?


Image

Pic of the Day: “Everybody loses the thing that made them. It’s even how it’s supposed to be in nature. The brave men stay and watch it happen, they don’t run.”


Image

Pic of the Day: “Take a good look my dear. It’s an historic moment you can tell your grandchildren about – how you watched the Old South fall one night.”

Pic of the Day: “Did he have a weakness for girls?” “Oh no, a great strength!”


Image

Pic of the Day: “I think you’re extraordinary.” “Why?” “I don’t know yet. It’s just obvious to me that you are.”


Image

Pic of the Day: “Mark, we as a nation have failed to honor you. And that’s a problem. Not just for you, but for our society. When we fail to honor that which should be honored, it’s a problem. It’s a canary in a coal mine.”


Image

Pic of the Day: “Walter, you’re wonderful, in a loathsome sort of way.”


Image

Pic of the Day: “You’re an agent?” “I reiterate, yes.” “If I went down there, would you be my agent?” “No.” “Why not?” “I ain’t interested. I’m satisfied with the list of clients I got now.” “You’re makin’ a mistake, but okay, you know.” “I made a lot of mistakes. So I’ll make another one. This one’s on me.”


Image

Pic of the Day: “Well, Clarice – have the lambs stopped screaming?”


Image

Pic of the Day: “God was wrong!”

Image

Pic of the Day: “If you must blink, do it now. Pay careful attention to everything you see and hear, no matter how unusual it may seem. And please be warned: If you fidget, if you look away, if you forget any part of what I tell you – even for an instant – then our hero will surely perish.”


Image

Pic of the Day: “Elias was full of shit. Elias was a crusader. Now, I got no fight with any man who does what he’s told, but when he don’t, the machine breaks down. And when the machine breaks down, we break down. And I ain’t gonna allow that in any of you. Not one.”

Pic of the Day: “All the animals come out at night – whores, skunk pussies, buggers, queens, fairies, dopers, junkies, sick, venal. Someday a real rain will come and wash all this scum off the streets. I go all over. I take people to the Bronx, Brooklyn, I take ’em to Harlem. I don’t care. Don’t make no difference to me. It does to some. Some won’t even take spooks. Don’t make no difference to me.”
