hey ya'll...I found the post I was searchin is not my post for today; however, I had to put it somewhere!! lol "Hasta la vista....Baby" it is these last words that captivate an audience and leaves them wanting more...(or less...Terminator XVII - no thank you!!); however, I have been watching a crap ton of movies as of late and it's these closing moments when your "quickie" is done with these characters that brings every lesson together. It ties all the loose ends together; gives us the "uh-huh"moment that we all lust after when we walk into the theatre, or press play. I have to say that as a person who is obsessed with movies (not in a cool Sundance sort of way) but I do really enjoy movies...the escapism of it all..the fact that no matter what, we can all drift off into fantasy, reality or the cosmic unknown for a brief point in time...*sigh* anyhow, i just thought I would share with you the most profound closings I have seen/heard/felt as of late.... 1. The Breakfast Club (spoken by Anthony Michael Hall - Brian Johnson) Brian Johnson: Dear Mr. Vernon, we accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. What we did *was* wrong. But we think you're crazy to make an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us... In the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain... Andrew Clark: ...and an athlete... Allison Reynolds: ...and a basket case... Claire Standish: ...a princess... John Bender: ...and a criminal... Brian Johnson: Does that answer your question?... Sincerely yours, the Breakfast Club Ok, Im sorry to go with an obvious one, but really, it's such a great ending to the movie...and every time I watch it...I still get a little bit of a tingle... 2. The Power of One (spoken by Stephen Dorff -PK) P.K.: I remember my nanny would tell me, that if I listened to the wind, I would hear the voices of my past. I listened, and heard Doc talk about justice, I heard Geel Piet talk about hope, I heard Daboola Manzi, the odd medicine man, talk about courage. I heard Maria. These are the voice of my life, the voices of Africa. These are the voices I carry with me, as Duma and I set out, to bring our country closer to a better tomorrow. This was one of the most political movies I had seen when it came out. This movie is inspiring, moving and I thought it was really well done. I also can't get away from the South African accent that Stephan Dorff has in the movie. 3. The Wizard of Oz (Spoken by Judy Garland - Dorothy) Dorothy: Oh, but anyway, Toto, we're home. Home! And this is my room, and you're all here. And I'm not gonna leave here ever, ever again, because I love you all, and - oh, Auntie Em - there's no place like home! .....oh Auntie Em...GAH! I can't get enough of WOZ. :Some where ooooooover the rainboooow, blue birds flyyyyyyy" 4. Fight Club (Spoken by Edward Norton -Tyler Durden/ *** Jack/Joe ( I bet you didn't know he didn't have a name in the movie or book - he typically made Jack references Jack's obdula oblongata) "You've met me at a really strange time in my life." um, shit! I think that the way this whole movie was put together is genius though. The book was super also. 5. Scarface (Spoken By Al Pacino - Tony Montana) "I'm Tony Montana! You fuck wit me, you fuckin' wit da best!" 'nuf said. 6. The Big Night (not spoken - but acted by Stanley Tucci and Campbell Scott) ...after a night of indulgence, laughter, wine and more..while bankruptcy and other woes may lay ahead two brothers sit down (both chefs) to a fresh omelet with their waiter and they sit in's magnificent - and if you're a foodie I highly recommend watching this flick!! 7. Remember the Titans (Spoken by Hayden Panettiere - Sheryl) Older Sheryl: People say that it can't work, black and white. Here, we make it work every day. We still have our disagreements, of course, but before we reach for hate, always, always, we remember the Titans. Goosebumps... anyhow to round out the most prominent one was from an unsuspecting movie that I just watched. 8. All about Steve (Spoken by Sandra Bullock - Mary Horowitz) "Why should you have to change to be normal? All you have to do is find someone who's as normal as you are." I love the truth in this. The fact that we all have our own individuality, what makes me "me" know....that "je ne sais quoi" it's equally as alluring to doesn't have to be everyone! Just sayin.... I also think it quite poetic the last words that some of the most renowned people of our time and our history's time. Beethoven, Ludwig van (1770-1827) "Friends applaud, the comedy is over." Dickinson, Emily (1830-1886) "... the fog is rising." Flynn, Errol (1909-1959) "I've had a hell of a lot of fun and I've enjoyed every minute of it." Picasso, Pablo (1881-1973) "Drink to me." Thomas, Dylan (1914-1953) "I have just had eighteen whiskeys in a row. I do believe that is a record." Voltaire (1694-1778) "This is no time to make new enemies." (Asked on his deathbed to forswear Satan) Just a thought or two...what are your favorites??? Leave me a comment and let me know!!!

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in rain... Time to die.
