I don't care what roujin says, I'm still voting for My Life as a Dog (until I find something better).

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Day of the Dead, thank you very much
But I wish the public could, in the midst of its pleasures, see how blatantly it is being spoon-fed, and ask for slightly better dreams.

All kidding aside, Ran is one the best movies I've ever seen. There are some very, very good films this year, but I had to go with Ran.
-Le Chiffre: You changed your shirt, Mr Bond. I hope our little game isn't causing you to perspire.

-James Bond: A little. But I won't consider myself to be in trouble until I start weeping blood.
