More Unforgettable Lines

Monday, June 30th, 2008

The *Orignal,” Most-Quoted, Absolute Favorite One: First Kiss, by starandrea (aka Starhawk) The Plot: This is the one that starts the longest, most amazing, most never-ending saga in the Power Rangers universe. It’s rockingly awesome. The Quote: “Man, those quantrons were tough.” Note: It’s worth it to add that I *always* think of Ashley saying […]

You know how some lines, whether they’re from movies, or tv, or fanfic, just tend to stick with you forever? No rhyme or reason, they’re just there, and years later you can still quote them? At my house everyone can do the classic movies — While You Were Sleeping (“I should’ve gotten a blue spruce. […]

Doctor Who — the one with the library, part 1

Thursday, June 26th, 2008

Wow, so the plot of this one seems kind of complicated, especially with the whole little girl/fake reality/remote control thing going on. All I know about the second part is what I’ve gleaned from fanfic — I’m too lazy to go looking for episode summaries, and also too lazy to worry about spoilers. Here are […]

I love Torchwood like I love Supernatural — in a way that’s completely unconnected from anything that may or may not have *actually* happened in the canon onscreen universe. The difference is that in Torchwood, the show is actually about what the writers think it’s about. Supernatural, I’m not so sure. I can’t quite imagine […]

National Treasure 1 (did it have a subtitle?)

Tuesday, June 24th, 2008

Fun movie. I watched NT2, and didn’t remember any of the people, or why they knew each other, or what the templar treasure was, so I went and rented the first one to watch again. (It costs $2.99 to rent a movie! An *old* movie! Plus you actually have to *go* to the creepy movie […]

National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets

Monday, June 23rd, 2008

I liked this movie better than the first one in every way except the plot. And the end (not the real end, the end when they escape the water room). Good things about the movie: It’s very quotable. Nicolas Cage demonstrates the ability to give serious speeches about people wanting to believe that the president […]

Quotable Quotes from National Treasure 2 “What’s new with you?” “Well, my girlfriend kicked me out, I’m living with my dad, and my family killed president Lincoln.” -Riley/Ben “You did that in 25 seconds.” “That’s why I tell people to get a dog.” -Ben/Riley “You know, Gray, I appreciate you doing your job, but I […]

quickly, before the next ep airs!

Doctor Who — the one with Agatha Christie *So* funny. The scene in the kitchen with the poisoning charades? Awesome. Best moments (paraphrased): -id-ing the year by the smell (or, perhaps, the vintage car) -the invitation (“Too bad we don’t have an invitation — oh wait, we do!”) -“on the other bus” -“at least there’s […]

HP fic

Thursday, June 19th, 2008

I was reading a Harry Potter fic the other day. It had Veelas in it. Need I say more? But it really got me thinking — there must be *some* story I’ve read with a main character as a Veela that was quality. I couldn’t think of any. But! Then I remembered a Veela!Draco fic […]

Celtics — NBA Champions!

Wednesday, June 18th, 2008

Congratulations Celtics! Go team! (Also, wow — I don’t actually *watch* basketball, except when I happen to be near the tv and the championship game is on, but that is one hard sport! I felt exhausted just *watching* them run up and down the court like that!)
