    • The Crow (1994)

      "Nothing is trivial."

      25 years old today.

      Stone Cold (1991)

      "You know, it's in moments like this that I think of my father's last words, which were 'don't son, that gun is loaded!'"

      • Natural Born Killers (1994)

        "I don't really believe anything women say to me."

        I don't have an opinion on this film. It wasn't poorly made or poorly acted, but I can't really say anything of it other than I watched it. Nothing really stuck with me, it was just a bunch of scenes of reckless psychopaths doing reckless psychopathic shit. The tonal clashing was so severe I found it hard to believe this is supposed to be a single story by a single director.

        I kind of liked Harrelson's line about the key lime pie, how him liking or disliking it previously didn't matter because he was a different person then, because it was very self-aware of the progression of taste, and there was something about the whole flashback with Dangerfield that was, in a very dark and twisted way, reminiscent of Married With Children, and I got a laugh out of them stumbling their way into the field of snakes, but other than that, the film is just ridiculous bordering on farcical. I get that it's supposed to be a satire, but it felt more like a half-formed joke.

        I only picked a quote because my dad laughed at the psychologist's response to Mallory's threat during Downey's interview.

        I can't say I disliked this, more accurately, I just didn't care for it.

        • Amazing Grace (2006)

          "Although my memory's fading, I remember two things very clearly: I'm a great sinner and Christ is a great Savior."

          Once Were Warriors (1994)

          "Our people once were warriors. But unlike you, Jake, they were people with mana, pride; people with spirit. If my spirit can survive living with you for eighteen years, then I can survive anything."

          Lee Tamahori's adaptation of the novel, which looks at one Maori (the native people of New Zealand) family dealing with their and the community's cycle of poverty, alcoholism, and violence.

          I actually disliked that movie the first time I saw it, but gave it another try and now I own it (which is not to say you should re-watch it nor that it would grow on you), but even at that it's not a comfortable movie to watch and I only picked it up because it was on sale. I was planning to watch it again on its 25th anniversary (in August). It's loosely based on the Starkweather murder spree.

            • Sumo: East and West (2003)

              "In sumo there are three ideals: spirit, skill, and body."

              A documentary looking at sumo wrestling in general, but particularly to what extent non-Japanese have been included or not. Interesting.

              MST3K: Bride of the Beast (1954/1993)

              "Don't worry, he's as gentle as a kitten.
              -Yeah, a big, bald, deranged kitten that could snap your neck like celery."

              I've gotten into the habit of watching BotM and Plan 9 in some form every year on their anniversary, whether it is a big one or not (like the 64th).

              • Really enjoyable. It got convoluted at the end a bit, I think tone-wise it was a bit uneven, and I wish they had developed more of the supporting characters better, but I thought they did a solid job at introducing The Pokemon world, and the CGI of the Pokemon creatures themselves was great. Also Pikachu was adorable, I loved all his expressions.

                      • Up! is such a great film. Has these really sad moments in Carl's past, but it's such a fun adventure you keep watching.

                        • The Mask of Zorro (1998)

                          "He is trained to kill. You seemed trained to drink."

                          Mausoleum (1983)

                          "No more grievin'; I'm leavin'!"

                          Killing Season (2013)

                          "You have no idea how lucky you are. My country has beauty, but there is an invisible layer of blood caked over everything."

                          Disappointing. The timeline is a bit wonky for De Niro to be an American Bosnian vet (they shave 7 years off his life, but even that's a stretch for an in-field soldier).

                          It's really impressive storytelling. Ellie dies about 7 minutes in (and she's probably not in the first 2). That's a brief time to make the audience care, but they do (everyone mentions it).

                          • Hell man, even before that, when they're in the doctor's office being told they can never have kids...

                            I felt so goddamn sorry for them, and then she passes and the floodgates just opened up.
