So Blockbuster video have done a survey to find the all-time great film quotes, so the BBC news pages tell me. Lots of emminently quotable chunks of film dialogue just ripe for harvesting for email signature files… I wonder how much download time in used up worldwide by sig. files that stay the same for years and years, that people read once and thought was cool and then ignored for the next 3000 emails… hmmmm
anyway, there are some great quotes on the list, my two faves being –
4. Samuel L Jackson, Pulp Fiction (1994): The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you.
7. Ewan McGregor, Trainspotting (1996): Choose life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family, Choose a big television, Choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players, and electrical tin openers. Choose good health, low cholesterol and dental insurance. Choose fixed-interest mortgage repayments. Choose a starter home. Choose your friends… Choose your future. Choose life.
but still worth a look.
And while we’re on the bbc news site, we find that Credit Card Spending hit an alltime high in November – GREAT!! The whole country plunges into debt over satiating the desires of greedy kids and buying hideous ties and socks for miserable old gits. When and where will it end???
