Bryan Singer’s The Usual Suspect has a pretty unusual and unexpected ending. Kevin Spacey convinces the cops about a story that they believe is true, only to reveal at the end that the devil did his deed right under their nose.Whenever I feel low, whenever I feel am going in the wrong direction as I have been forced to think about things by people who constantly ramble about what’s right and what’s wrong. I revisit Gabriele Muccino’s The Pursuit Of Happyness. Not only is the film beautiful it’s utterly inspirational. One of the quote that comes to a mind is when Chris Gardner talks to his son about standing for himself and not taking anyone else’s words as his own.
Peter Jackson’s The Lord Of The Rings trilogy are well know for the battles, the emotions, the visuals and the friendship. His films also have handpicked dialogues from the book. One of the quotes that really is an inspiration for everyone who feels they are too small, or too unnoticeable is:Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight is one of the most remarkable films made in the superhero genre and probably the best one at that. The film features some exceptional words from everyone. One such quote that I found hard hitting was about the wannabe civilized people. The Late Heath Ledger who dons The Joker, says: “They’re only as good as the world allows them to be.” Following it by saying: Stephen Chbosky’s novel The Perks of being a Wallflower was adapted by him. The coming-of-age film was an examination of a troubled teenager and his lonely life as he struggled to make friends, fall in love and get out of his emotional troubles, in that order. There are a lot of lines in the film which are brilliant but my favorite is:Frank Darabont’s The Shawshank Redemption was a story of two imprisoned men who bond over a number of years, finding solace and eventual redemption through acts of common decency. Hope was one of the most common aspects that the ensues in everyone. Andy Dufresne and Red talk about freedom and captivity in one of the most valuable scenes in cinematic history. Andy exclaims:There are a million movies that talk about love and the story behind. 500 Days of Summer was not a love story it was a story about love. It talked about the miserable feeling a person get when he is on the thin line of being called a friend and a lover. It’s always the bizarre love crap that ever rom-com talks about. The protagonist tells us about Loneliness which no-one seems to talk about. Tom says:
Quentin Tarantino is an artist. He writes his film with a flare that no one can ever match. His characters are violent people, mostly not likable. But when they as much as speak their heart what comes out is philosophical. Pulp Fiction had Mia Wallace sipping a 5 dollar Milkshake and making you aware of the special someone. Not the one who pampers but the one who makes thing settle down silently noticing. Who hasn’t seen Fight Club. The testosterone boosting psychological masterpiece by David Fincher had incredibly well written dialogues. Courtesy to Chuck Palahniuk’s novel by the same name. One of the best characters in the history of films explains life in it’s most blunt form. Tyler Durden says:
One of my favorite quote of all times is also from the movie adaption of one of my favorite books, “Into The Wild” by Jon Krakauer. Sean Penn Directed the film with impeccable care and Emile Hirsch breathed life into the character of a drifter who wanted to notice and live life on his own terms.
