Talented Mr. Ripley (1999)

1 Oct

Meet Mr. Ripley, he’s a fine-looking man unfortunately he doesn’t think so, playing piano is one of his many best talents, but that’s definitely not his greatest one. Forging signature, telling lies and impersonating practically anybody outshine all of his other talents. And before i forget, meet Mr. Dickie Greenleaf  he’s filthy rich, he doesn’t work, he’s madly in love with jazz and just like his name he’s a dick. Mr. Ripley met Mr. Greenleaf they became friends, throughout their brief friendship Mr.ripley  found his new hidden talent, which is murder and deception.

 

FREDDIE
               I want this job of yours, Tommy. I was
               just saying – You live in Italy, sleep in
               Dickie’s house, eat Dickie’s food, wear
               his clothes, and his father picks up the
               tab. If you get bored, let me know, I’ll
               do it!

MARGE
               You really should go in, it’s marvellous.

                         RIPLEY
               I’m fine.

     She approaches him, conscious of his isolation. She’s in a
     red bikini, and she towels herself dry as they speak.

                         MARGE
               Are you okay?

                         RIPLEY
               Sure.

     They watch Dickie and Freddie fooling around in the water.

                         MARGE
               The thing with Dickie – it’s like the sun
               shines on you and it’s glorious, then he
               forgets you and it’s very very cold.

                         RIPLEY
               So I’m learning.

                         MARGE
               He’s not even aware of it. When you’ve
               got his attention you feel like you’re
               the only person in the world. That’s why
               everybody loves him. Other times…

Water (2005)

1 Oct

 

No this is not another typical Hindi/Bollywood movie, as a matter of  fact this is far cry from the normal hindi movie that played on our tv, it is a story of the fate of widowed women in india sets in ther of 1938. this film was so controversy that the production have to change their filming location from india to sri lanka. i’m not surprised watching it made me feel humble and at the same time disdain…sometimes i wonder, who wrote this kind of laws..is it men, why does women have to become slave even after their husbands death…watch this and you’ll understand. Thanks to Lisa Ray and John Abraham good looks made me motivated to watch this movie.

Narayana: No, i’m not married

Kalyani: good god! why not?

Narayana: My father says, chilhood is time for play, not for marriage
.
Kalyani: and your mother?

Narayana: If she had her way,i’d have a daughter as old as Chuyia.

Kalyani: your mother’s right, That’s how things are.

Narayana: that’s how thigs were, times are changing.
All the old traditions are dying out.

Kalyani: But what is good should not die out.

Narayana: And who will decide …..what is good and what is not?

Kalyani: You!

BHAGAVATI: Why are widows sent here.
there must be a reason for it

NARAYANa:  One less mouth to feed,
Four saris saved,
One bed,
and a corner is saved in the family home,

There is no reason why you are here.
Disguised as religion, it’s just about money.

Paris je t’aime (2006)

1 Oct

  1 romantic city , 22 directors, 20 short stories, beautifully written scripts, 1 breathtaking love movie.

Francine: Thomas Listen. Listen. There are times when life calls out
for a change. A transition. Like the seasons. Our spring was
wonderful, but summer is over now and we missed out on autumn. And
now all of a sudden, its cold, so cold that everything is freezing
over. Our love fell asleep, and the snow took it by surprise. But
if you fall asleep in the snow, you dont feel death coming. Take
care.

Bob Leander: Cant we walk together?
Fanny Forestier: Im so ashamed.
Bob Leander: Why? You did it out of love, I assume.
Fanny Forestier: And what do you do, out of love?
Bob Leander: I ache… for who we were.

Hassan: I just got stung by a lousy mosquito. These neighborhoods are

dangerous. Lagos is safer. What your name?

Sophie: Sohpie

Hassan: Id give you my card but I have none left. Too bad! Sophie,

fancy a cup of coffee? Go on! Can I massage your feet?

Sophie: Why would I let you?

Hassan: you were running in my dreams all night.

The Husband: In pretending to be a man in love, he became a man in love again.

THE GOODS:Live Hard,Sell Hard. (2009)

14 Sep

A smooth-talking jack-of-all-trades attempts to save
a struggling car dealership from certain bankruptcy
in this comedy starring Jeremy Piven, directed by Chappelle’s Show.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1092633/

Rotten Tomatoes, Tomatometer: 26%

Metacritic, metascore: 36 out of 100

Despite getting low ratings, it delivers some good laugh, not a surprise, Jeremy Piven character works really well on him, same goes with all other main casts here. I watched this right after i watched some bad show that i don’t think worth to share and it get me right back on my good mood, and if you’re a sales man and you watch this you know you wanna be just like Don Ready, he got the goods, he sells it, hell he even gets the girl. I kinda liked the script, let me share some of the best scene/lines from the movie.

 

BABS – What are you doing, honey?

DON- Enjoying myself.

STEWARDESS [STACEY] – Sir, there’s no smoking on airplanes.

DON – I know. It’s ridiculous, isn’t it? Don’t worry about it, I’ll be quick.

STWARDESS [STACEY] – Sir, if you light that, I’ll have to report you to the FAA.  

DON – Stacey, do you know when the first commercial flight went smokeless?

STEWARDESS – No.

DON – 1973.And did you know that in 1969, when smoking was allowed on all flights,we put a man on the moon?  

STEWARDESSI had no idea.

 DON Look.[don, pointing at the armrest ashtray] You know what that is? That’s a remnant of a better time, but they welded it shut. And it starts with ashtrays, and it ends with all of  our being stripped away. I remember back in the day when you got on and you knew you were in for a good time. A little smoking, a little drinking.

JIBBY – Yeah.

DON – And the stewardesses. Stacey, you come from a proud tradition of blazing hot stewardesses. And now you can’t do one damn thing without someone reporting you to the Department of Homeland Security. Am I right?

JIBBY AND THE REST – That’s right.

BRENT – You listen to Don.

DON – I had to take my pants off and nibble my Old Spice down to three ounces just to get on the plane, Stacey.

STEWARDESS [STACEY] – They made me throw out my mouth wash.

BRENT – I had to give up my bath jellies.

BABS – They made me breastfeed some old man.

DON – That’s what I’m talking about. But we don’t have to take it, Stacey. Like Henry David Thoreau and Rosa Parks and David Lee Roth when he left Van Halen, we can say, “Enough. Enough injustice.” And when you and I are old and gray,we can look back on this and remember when we were 30,000 feet above God’s green earth, and we smoked one, we smoked one for America.

PASSANGERS ON THE PLANE – Yeah!!! [CHEERING]

STEWARDESS [STACEY] – You motherfucker.

PASSANGERS – Nice work. Nice work.

STEWARDESS [STACEY] – Who are you?

DON – I’m Don Ready, and I got the goods.
