"The 100 Best Movie Lines of All Time, in One Video"

This is an excellent compilation (6 minutes). Many, many outstanding ones shown. But, as usual, there are at a few significant omissions.

Patton: "Rommel . . . you magnificent bastard, I read your book!"

Stand and Deliver: "If you don't have the ganas, I will give it to you because I'm an expert."

The Right Stuff: "Let's light this candle!"

Gandhi: Tie between "General, how does a child shot with a 303 Lee-Enfield 'apply' for help?" and "Mr. Kinnoch, I beg you to accept that there is no people on Earth who would not prefer their own bad government to the good government of an alien power."

Three Days of the Condor: "How do you know they'll print it?"

An Officer and a Gentleman: "My grandmama wants to fly jets!"

The Verdict: "Who were these men? Who were these men?"

And, of course, from Young Doctors in Love: "Old man, don't you think you've pissed enough?"

Also about movies: "The Ultimate Film and TV Spoiler Guide".

"8 Crazy Celebrity Stories That Are Actually True"

Ol' Billy Bob is talented as heck, but he's a little unusual.

"The Longest Hollywood Marriages"

Nice to know that some Hollywooders have, apparently, happy marriages.

"The New “Point Break” Remake Trailer Is Out And People Are Not Happy"

I agree: there was absolutely no reason to remake this movie.

Ben Harp: You're a real blue flame special, aren't you, son? Young, dumb and full of come, I know. What I don't know is how you got assigned here. Guess we must just have ourselves an asshole shortage, huh?

Johnny Utah: [quietly] Not so far.

"Face it, George Clooney sucks"

Kyle Smith at the New York Post makes a pretty convincing case that Mr. Clooney's box office results don't match his reputation.

Clooney isn’t even a movie star. He’s just a guy who keeps getting highly paid to make movies nobody wants to see.

"The 21 Best 80's Movie Quotes"

"Life moves pretty fast. You don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it," "I'll be back," and others.

"The Top Ten Philip Seymour Hoffman Performances"

The man was very, very good. His performance in Charlie Wilson's War was especially excellent.

"Abe Vigoda ‘Death': 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know"

The TL;DR version: as of the time I'm composing this post, he's alive. And there's a Web site where you can find out, at any given second, whether he still is.

"Diane Keaton: 'I Don't Agree There's a Lack of Female Roles"

This needed to be said. Good for her.

"I was lucky," she says. Keaton made a name for herself during a decade of great '70s comedies and dramas. Are today's young actresses, all coming of age in the superhero era, less fortunate? "No! Not at all! Are you kidding?" she bursts. "I don't agree that there's a lack of female roles. To me, it just seems as if everything's expanding and there are many more opportunities. When you consider everything that's happened with television, YouTube, social media, all the different ways that stories are being told — no, I think if anything, it's a much better time. Everybody should be taking advantage of it!
