Movie Quote Quiz: February Edition

The Rules: 1. Don't look any of the quotes up on the internet, or any other "looking-up" device.
2. Submit your answers in a comment on this post. You may submit as many comments as you need to, depending on when you remember the different quotes.
3. You score one point for every correct answer you submit -that's telling me what movie the quote is from- and you can also earn an extra point by telling me who said the quote!
4. You MAY ask immediate family members (parents, siblings, pets, etc.) for help and you MAY watch a movie again to see if one of the quotes is in it (of course, that would probably be a waste of time, but whatever :P

1. "Now, it's no use arguing anymore. No more talk until morning." "He won't be here in the morning.  "Huh? Oh yes, he will, I... (NAME)! HOLD IT, (NAME)!"

2. "Where are you?" "Stop talking. Start the van." "(name), the, uh, mean D- Declaration lady is behind you."

3."It is no concern of mine whether or not your family has... what was it again?" "Umm... food?" "Ha! You really should have thought of that before you became peasants!"

4."Forgive me, Your Highness, I did not see you." "Your aim would suggest otherwise."

5. “Mmm. Lost a planet, (NAME) has. How embarrassing. How embarrassing.”

6. "(NAME), can you drop us off a block from the school? I don't want to cause a riot with this hearse." "This is a non-riot hearse. If it were a hearse, there would be silence in the backseat."

7. "You should know that this is the strangest thing I've ever done!" "How 'bout best two out of three?"

8."They be my charts!"
"Well, that makes you...chartman."
"Stow it! Both of you! That's an order! Understand?" "Sorry. I just thought with the Captain issue in doubt, I'd throw my name in for consideration, sorry."
"I'd vote for you."

9."Uncle, It's me, (NAME). You came to my eighth birthday party. You gave me a subscription to Algebra Monthly."
"(NAME)? (NAME)! No, (NAME) was a much smaller boy."
"But that was five years ago."
"Was it? Well, err... I should think he'd be about your age by now. I wonder what he's doing."

10."We'll be alright (NAME). We're the lucky ones, you and me. Lucky since the day I met you."

It ends Friday 28th. And I think that some of the qoutes are a little mroe challenging. Anyway, have fun!

What I owe BBC

BBC stands for 'British Broadcasting Company' and it's one of the most amazing companies ever, (because most companies are boring). But seriously I love the BBC, nothing can compare, with it's amazing (dare I use that phrase again?) Well, actually today I am only talking about the two that come to mind which I love and have seen more than once. :) Also, I can't think of a lot of other BBC adaptations I've seen all the way thorugh. :)

Pride and Prejudice (1995)

How can I describe this perfect beyond all perfect adaptation of my dear cousin's work, well, to tell the truth, I only just finished watching this, this afternoon, with most of my family, as Dad got home a little earlier from work, and Autumn wanted to watch it before she went back to college. It is one of the funnies movies ever!
When you are little, you don't understand what is so funny, but when you are older, from Mrs. Bennet's handkerchief waving, to hissing whenever you see Wicked Wickam, to grinning when Mr. Darcy smiles, to feeling supremely happy when they kiss at the end.

Ah, now that is what makes this the best adaptation, that ever was, or ever shall be. :)

Sherlock (2010-)
Sherlock is amazing! Period, exclamation mark. It is one of the best shows out there. It was my introduction to Sherlock Holmes, what introduced me to the detective and his best friend. The characters, the script, the storyline, the actors! Oh yes, and sooooo quotable, and it makes me laugh, and I love the charcters, even new ones like Mary, she's awesome! Everything is amazing! And yes, Benedict Cumberbatch is my new favourite actor. Problem? Good, I'm glad that's cleared up. :P

But besides being great adaptations of A.C. Doyle's work, they are also great episodes to watch without having read the books, oh and a fair amount better than the R.Downey jr. films as well. And Elementary, do not speak to me of it! This is to date, the only Sherlock Holmes movies/t.v. show I have seen all the way through, besides the Great Mouse Detective, which I love as well. :)
I love this, worst enemies, and they have tea while threatening. 
It will be interesting to see where the series will go, I'm hoping that season four will come out very soon, but I hope that they do not ruin it by making Moriarty come back.

So obviously as you can see, I owe BBC  a lot. Imagine what it would be like if BBC didn't exist! That would indeed be terrible!

God Bless

Frozen: A review of sorts

So, I owe you all an apology. I said I would write this review a while back and well, here it is now, a few weeks later.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy it anyhow! Also, this review has spoilers. :)
Note that do not thinik that the trailer reflects the movie at all, because it doesn't. In fact compared to tge movie it is not even very 'tolerable I suppose'. :)

So, to date I've seen Frozen three times. Wow! That's humongous, before seeing Frozen I only went and saw something at the movies once. Anyway, that's kind of relevant, but irrelevant. I'm actually a wee bit sick of Frozen now, because I've seen it so much in such a short amount of time. But that doesn't mean that the movie (if you don't watch it that much) is great. When I watched Frozen for the first time I was a bit of a basher of it, I admit. After all, people had said that it was better than Tangled. Wait, Tangled? It was better than Tangled? How'd that work? Because Tangled happens to be one of my favourite Disney movies ever. And no one can beat Flynn Rider.
I love this. :)
Anyway this review is going to be a little shorter than usual, mostly because I've been stressing about it and I'm now wanting to get rid of it as soon as possible. I know that sounds  a bit mean, but I feel l;ike I can't blog about anything else, until I've done this.

Frozen is an adaptation of Hans Christian Anderson's 'The Snow Queen' now I don't know the storyline that well, but as usual, Disney added its customary flair of difference, but that's fine, I love Disney versions better than the original stories.

First off, the music is awesome! We have the entire soundtrack, and though I still love it, it is a step up from Tangled's music as well, besides the fact that it has so many more songs. My all time favourite is 'Love is an Open Door' it's very funny, and I love what Hans and Anna are doing while they sing it. Also, it reminded me of other classic Disney songs, like 'Be our Guest' because of all the different places and things going on.
Also, don't forget 'Let it go' and ummmm, well basically all the songs. Okay, even if you don't watch the movie, get the songs!

As for the characters, well, Sven was adorable I'm mean, totally adorable, I think having a pet Sven would be great, and at the finale when he grabs Kristoff and makes him understand that he NEEDS to go back to the castle. He's just a big sweety.

Olaf is a snowman who wants to see Summer. He also has the super-funny song 'In Summer' which I know off by heart. And he is so funny, too! 'Oh, look at that I've been impaled' and he really is a good character. My favourite bit with him is the 'Little been Unicorn' bit. And then when he lights the fire for Anna, and he starts melting, that's so nice. :)
Elsa is my favourite of the princesses, I don't know, maybe because her character is so interesting and that she sings 'Let it Go' also, don't you feel sorry for her, and I love her dress. And she just seems like such a complicated character, and it is great at the end to see how happy she is.

Anna is a great character, she's impulsive, she's funny, and she's a bit of a chatter-box. Also, we all love the 'hairbrush part' with Olaf. She always tries to do what is best but sometimes, she fails miserably.

Kristoff is the 'prince' although he sells 'ice for a living' and he is rather sweet, especially when he is getting Anna back to Hans. I was a bit disappointed that he didn't really sing a song (except for Reindeer's are Better than People) which is hysterical as he also does Sven's voice. But, I really would have liked it if he had sung a song with Anna, or something. I mean, Hans did, and he's not even a good guy.
Hans is the bad guy, it's a bit of a shocker because he seemed so nice, but then when you find out, you think 'Right, I hate you.' It was great at the end where Anna punches him, so funny! But I admit, I think I like him better than Kristoff. :) That is before you find out he is bad.

Anyway, if you have not yet seen Frozen I highly recommend it, it's Disney which means it's pretty amazing, I'd better go, as you can see, it is a very short review, but that's fine. :)

God Bless
