"I am not an animal!"

Now was that Planet of the Apes or The Elephant Man or Animal House?

Gilmer and LBrain quoted my two favorite movies ever! Shrubberies anyone? Abby Normal?

Here's mine, and I'm in for the weekend.

"You risked your life to save that riff raff in the bar?!!" "They may be drinkers Robin, but they're also human beings. They may be salvaged."

From the original Adam West Batman movie waaay back when.

And now I am leaving to drive home. Catch you all later!

My kids amps go to eleven. Sigh. My husband is trying to sleep before working tonight and our children are running around and screeching.

Scary movies? Alien. Hands down. Movie I expected not to like and thought was surprisingly good? Minority Report.

This whole movie thread reminds me of undergrad. Every Sunday there was a movie on campus which most people attended since it was a small school (a thousand students) with not much going on. One year I swear whomever picked the movies must have been going through a major depressive episode. We saw Sophie's Choice, Das Boot, The Tin Drum, and The Shining all in one semester. "Heeere's Johnny!"

Time to chase kids to bed. I got up at 3:45 this morning to use the bathroom and my son was sitting in the living room watching television.

Ruby, your kids sound like mine. Luckily, they are old enough now (almost 14 and 11) so in the summer I really just let them do what they want and they are always still sleeping when I leave for work. Not sure what that says about my parenting, but soon enough, we'll be back to getting on the bus
at 6:15 a.m.

Anyone going to the movies this weekend? My kids want to see the movie Earth to Echo so we'll probably go. It's rare they want to see the same movie anymore. A few weeks ago, my daughter convinced me to see The Fault in Our Stars. I had read the book so I knew what to expect but it was tough and we both cried a lot (along with everyone else in the theater; all female with the exception of a boy on a date).

Charlee, I'm both waiting and dreading the time when the kids are old enough to let them do what they want.

The last movie we went to see together was the Lego movie. This was a good line from the movie: Vitruvius: MasterBuilders spend years training themselves to clear their minds enough to have even a fleeting glimpse of The Man Upstairs and yet, your mind is already so prodigiously empty that there is nothing in it to clear away in the first place. With proper training you could become a great MasterBuilder.

It had a lot of stuff for the grown ups in it too. Prodigiously empty. That is how my brain feels at the moment.

DING-DING-DING
"Winner, winner, chicken dinner!"

Originating in the casinos of Los Vegas, this phrase is in two modern era movies.

"What kind of beer?"

(same movie)

"See, friendship is the booze they feed you. They want you to get drunk on feeling like you belong."

Not that I know of, LTV. If so, it's in five movies. IMDB says it's in three.

Thanks for the little mental excursions

My vote for one of the most terrifying movies I have ever seen:

Jacob's Ladder

Psychological thrillers do not thrill me, they scare the sheet out of me. Nightmares!! Ruby - I'm too chicken to see The Shining. I'm afraid I will need to sleep with my light on or have the baseball bat next to me at night. Too old for that?

Olive - When Harry Met Sally...awww. That was fun.

My sober night is slowly coming to a close. Yawn.

***Well Trachemys...I can see Al Pacino saying the words...is it Carlito's Way, "Say hello to my leeee-tle friend"? Or...Oh! The Robocop sentence mix-up is "I'd buy that for a Dollar"...not about chicken. No. OK. I'm going to look it up I'm hungry. 0 for 2.

Scariest movie:
When I was not old enough, my friends and I snuck into the drive-in down the street and watched 'The Exorcist'. I was the same age as Regan was in the movie. I had nightmares about that for months.


Also,
Went to see the first 'Paranormal Activity' right when it came out and it scared the crap out of me.

I don't go see scary movies anymore.

I was thinking of one of my favorite "drinking" movies. The Thin Man with William Powell and Myrna Loy. Myrna as Nora Charles comes tripping into the hotel bar with arms full of Christmas presents, behind their dog which is pulling her along on a leash. She finds that nick has been drinking martinis and she is behind him. "Will you bring me five more martinis, Leo? And line them right up here."
The Thin Man (1934)

One of the next scenes is Nora laying there with an ice bag on her head. "What hit me?" "That last martini." Drinking was so easy, breezy carefree. I noticed that the later movies cut back on the alcohol but in 1934 prohibition had just been repealed (December 1933) and the depression was still on so people were probably flocking for escape. High society depicted as a fancy party with cocktails in silver shakers. Not so pretty in reality though.
