I saw the superb Jojo Rabbit last night, and one quote above others stood out as a candidate for mixing. And when you think about Nazis, and satirising them in a modern context, well, one individual immediately springs to mind…… Some jokes just write themselves, basically.
Luscious is out having dinner with friends tonight, so Lord 15 and I settled in for bad pizza and a DVD. Gotham by Gaslight is an alternative universe Batman story set in the 19th Century, pitting the Caped Crusader against — maybe — Jack the Ripper. It’s a little contrived, but has some surprisingly good moments, and casting Selina Kyle as a Suffragette is all the good things.
As always, a movie watched is a Mixed Movie Quote posted……
The nostalgia was thick in the air at the Batthaim last night, as we settled in to expose Lord 15 to a simpler time, when computers had black screens and green writing, and Baby Yoda had three movements and hair.
War Games, surprisingly, holds up extraordinarily well. It’s still tight, tense, and superbly timed. Thank God we watched it first, because Gremlins has aged about as well as Keith Richards’ ballsac. Nevertheless, the law is the law: here they both are, Mixed Movie Quote style.
Karratha has a beautiful theatre complex, which contains exactly one cinema screen in the auditorium that doubles as both cinema and traditional theatre. As a consequence, screenings are very limited: more often than not, a movie will have one-two screenings at best. Miss an anticipated flick, and you’re stuck with waiting until it arrives on DVD at the one store we have for that purpose.
Needless to say, Lord 14 is extremely happy to have secured tickets to the one screening of It 2 for him and his girlfriend.
Which is my little way of saying you can blame his constant chatter for this mixed-up movie quote.
So, yeah, we watched Taxi Driver. This is where my head went. Another mixed movie quote. I make no apologies.
It’s not unusual: you watch one movie, and realise just how perfectly a line from that movie would fit into another movie. So, you know, you download an image, and open it with Paint, and, you know…… right?
Anyway, I was washing the dishes, and my mind was wandering, and that’s how the first one happened. And then I was watching The Untouchables, and I was getting bored (it really hasn’t aged well), and my mind was wandering……. and anyway, it amuses me, and there’s bound to be more, I’ll post ’em as they happen, ‘k?
