WTB how did we miss this one?

Nice! Chalk another one up for me! It's been a while. Spanglish rules. It's lame when I hear people talk trash on that movie. They expect a comedy (Adam Sandler) so much and are so disappointed that they totally miss the point.
Here is a Wright Classic that seems to have slipped through the cracks... My appologies if it has been done already, but I really don't think so. Good luck peeps. Facebook me with your guesses.

Person 1: These blow up into funny shapes and all?
Person 2: Well no... unless round is funny.

Wednesday easy clue:
"We figured there was too much happiness here for just the two of us, so we figured the next logical step was to have us a critter."

I wouldn't say there is any 1 giveaway line for this movie, so I will give a few that should do the trick if you've seen it.

-"Nathan needs some Huggies, I'll be out directly. Mind you stay strapped in."

-"Son... you've got a panty on your head..."

-"H.I., you're young and you got your health, what you want with a job?"

-"Say, did you hear about the person of the Polish persuasion who walked into a bar with a big 'ol pile of sh** in his hands and he says, "Look what I almost stepped in"?

-"Well, which is it young fella? You want I should freeze or get down on the ground? Mean to say, iffen I freeze, I can't rightly drop. And iffen I drop, I'm a gonna be in motion."

I hesitated to use this movie because I knew that Matt loved it so much and has seen it multiple times. I thought I could slip the first quote by him but lost. He got it on the first day early.
Sue babe was second on Tuesday. Then Emily, Bronwyn and Dan after the Wednesday quotes.

Excellent movie with a lot of laughs but with some real feelings and messages. The mother/daughter relationship between Flor and Christina was special. Tia Leoni did a great acting job as well as her mother Cloris Leachman. Very funny stuff but sensitive. Best part for Adam Sandler since Happy Gilmore. I liked the fact that dispite the physical attraction between the two main actors, they withstood the temptation to jump in the sack that we see in most all other movies. To bad the movie only grossed $42,000. It's a shame that more people didn't see it. Good one gang, and congrats, Matthew. Looking forward to your playlist and it better have a Pixies number on it.

Booker and Kyle trying to scare people

Is the title of this picture.
Booker is the one with the scary hands and Kyle is next to him (he has a sad floating head). Then there is me, I have the "scared hands" and Scout is the tall one. She explains that she grew.

Just thought it was cute.

The only hint for this weeks movie is that it is not in Black 'n White. Yes, color it be. Let's have a good week and make some guesses and get some wright. I have faith and know some of you can get this one.

Quote # 1. She: How are you nicer than me?
He: You didn't set the bar that high.

Quote # 2. He: They should name a gender after you.
He: Looking at you doesn't do it, staring is the only way that makes sense.
He: And trying not to blink so you don't miss anything.
He: And all of that and you're you.
He: It's just that you are drop dead crazy gorgeous.
He: So much so, that I'm actually considering looking at you again before we finish up here.

Have a good week everyone.


Quote #1 Person #1: Do I need to put on make-up?
Person #2: You need a hose, but we don't have that kinda time.

Quote #2 Evelyn: Lately, your low self-esteem is just good common sense.

Have a good rest of the week. Drive carefully and have fun, all you Phisters.


Narrator: "I've been overwhelmed by your encouragement to apply to your university and your list of scholarships available to me. Though, as I hope this essay shows, your acceptance, while it would thrill me, will not define me. My idenitity rest firmly and happly on one fact. I am my mother's daughter. Thank you, Christina Moreno."

Have a great weekend....

WTB Movie Dr. Strangelove

WHAT THE BIP! Ha! I stumped you with one of the all time best satire movies ever made. Next time we get together we need to watch it together. Wright family time together learning how to love the Bomb. Peter Sellers plays three roles. George C. Scott is great. The doomsday project is a blast. Anyway....See it and learn from one of Stanley Kubrick's better movies.

I guess I am going again for next week. I will think about getting a little more modern, mainstream. But then?? We'll see! Tune in tomorrow. Happy birthday, Elinor and Happy Anniversary, Amy and Scott.

Jonestown: The Life and Death of Peoples Temple. 3.5 stars.

Matt just reminded me that we'd wanted to review this documentary that we saw a couple of months ago. I love Netflix, and have been adding every movie that I've ever wanted to see, and documentaries on every topic I'm interested in. I've always known that something happened in Waco, Texas, but never knew what, with my Amish upbringing. So we watched a documentary on that (informative, and shocking, but nothing special), and after that, it suggested that I watch this. After reading a brief description, I moved it to near the top of our queue. It was really, really interesting. It's so crazy how it all happened. During the beginning, you're like "Wow, you're right, Peoples Temple sounds great, Jim Jones is pretty cool, I'd join that." Then you hear some of the random stuff like how he taught that everyone was homosexual except him, and you're like "Oh, huh, well he's still doing all of this other great stuff, so we'll forgive that one weird thing." Then there's the self-sufficient communities that are so neat, and the great programs for all the elderly, and how charismatic and nice he is, and how much good his program was doing for so many people. Well, then they go make a nice little community in the jungle, and he turns out to be this freaky whack job who's a total control freak mind washing nutcase freak job. Matt and I both thought it was neat that there were really no "Expert witness" testaments for the film; it was mainly victims, and family members of victims, and maybe one or two other people who'd been involved in some way who were respected professionals. It wasn't researchers, or expert historians, or novelists, or anything like that. Anyways, it was so interesting to see how nothing like this happens really suddenly (unless you're the Manson family, he he), but people get indoctrinated into something bit by bit, and then something like this happens, and you can look back and see that there were a lot of warning signs, but the people were still mostly happy and cared for. The details are getting a little fuzzy, but please take out of this that this was not a mass suicide (for the most part), but a mass murder. They gave the cianide laced Kool-Aid to the children while people were still panicking, and because the children were dying, the mothers didn't want to live without them. Soo... if you're in the mood for something really depressing, but pretty fascinating and well done, watch this.

Hero. 4 stars!

So Matt's good friend Lee loaned us 4 movies to watch, which included this one, Memoirs of a Geisha, and 2 anime films that he told Matt to try. I'd been feeling under the weather and watching Pride and Prejudice all day, so I was ready for a drastic change. We saw that it was presented by Quentin Tarantino, meaning he saw it and loved it and brought it to the states. We figured if Quentin liked it, it'd be pretty dang good. And no surprise, it was AMAZING!! It's all in subtitles, which I enjoy and Matt hates, but didn't mind this time. The imagery alone is worth watching this movie. The use of colors is incredible, the scenes in the palace courtyard are just epic, the storyline is SO interesting to follow, the ending is surprising and heroic (for lack of a better adjective), and the action scenes are a little unrealistic, but still fun. I won't spoil anything, but I really really like the ending, which will probably surprise anyone who sees this. I'll just leave it at that. Anyways, see this if you're in the mood for a good action film (with hardly any blood), stunning imagery, a little history/crash course in Chinese dialect, and a powerful message, see this.

WTB Movie Quiz

Well, supprised to win again. Haha... Just a guess on the Stand By Me movie as I explaned on the last posting. But a win, is a win, and I'll take it. So, peeps, suck-it-up, and make your guesses. Have a good week, e-baugh.

Quote: Man: "Well, I've been to one world fair, a picnic, and a rodeo, and that's the stupidest thing I ever heard come over a set of earphones. You sure you got today's codes?"

Talk to you on Wednesday.


Lionel Mandrake: Colonel...that Coca-Cola machine. I want you to shoot the lock off it. There may be some change in there.
Colonel "Bat" Guano: That's private property.
Lionel: Colonel! Can you possibly imagine what is going to happen to you, your fame, outlook, way of life, and everything, when they learn that you have obstructed a telephone call to the President of the United States? Can you imagine? Shoot it off! Shoot! With a gun! That's what the bullets are for, you twit!
Bat: Okay. I'm gonna get your money for ya. But if you don't get the President of the United States on that phone, you know what's gonna happen to you?
Lionel: What?
Bat: You're gonna have to answer to the Coca-Cola company.

Quote two: Colonel Turgidson: If the pilot's good, see, I mean if he's reeeally sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low....oh you oughta see it sometime. It's a sight. A big plane like a '52....varrooom! it's jet exhaust...frying chickens in the barnyard!

Have a good one!!!
General Jack D. Ripper: Were you ever a prisoner of war?
Capt. Lionel Mandrake: Well, yes I was, matter of fact, Jack, I was.
Gen. Ripper: Did they torture you?
Capt. Mandrake: Uh, yes they did. I was tortured by the Japanesse, Jack, if you must know; not a pretty story.
Gen. Ripper: Well, what happened?
Capt. Mandrake: Oh, well, I don't know, Jack, difficult to think of under these conditions; but, well, what happened was they got me on the old Rangoon-Ichinawa railway. I was laying train lines for the bloody Japanese puff-puff's.
Gen. Ripper: No, I mean when they tortured you did you talk?
Capt. Mandrake: Ah, oh, no...well, I don't think they wanted me to talk really. I don't think they wanted me to say anything. It was just their way of having a bit of fun, the swines. Strange thing is they make such bloody good cameras.
#2. President Merkin Muffley: (on the phone) Hello?...Uh..Hello D- uh hello Dmitri? Lesten uh uh I can't hear too well. Do you suppose you could turn the music down just a little?...Oh-ho, that's much better.... .... .... Now then, Dmitri, you know how we've always talked about the possibility of something going wrong with the Bomb...The "Bomb", Dmitri... The "hydrogen" bomb!...Well now, what happened is..ahm...one of our base commanders, he had a sort of...well, he went a little funny in the head..you know..just a little...funny. And, ah.. HE WENT AND DID A SILLY THING.. Well I'll tell you what he did. He ordered his planes...to attack your country.
#3. President Muffley: "Gentleman, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room."
Most of you did not live through the Cold War years. It was an interesting time to say the least.
This movie was and is a great satire on the Cold War, the Arms Race, the Bomb and Russian/U.S. relations. Very funny and good acting. I'm supprised and sorry most of you have not seen it. The quote "He went and did a silly thing" was used a lot in shows, jokes and conversation after the movie was released. The "War Room" quote is good also.

What the bip? It was Stand By Me!

If you haven't seen this movie in awhile, you should watch it. I watched it a few months ago on cable and it totally holds up. You know how sometimes you decide to watch a movie you loved when you were younger and you are totally let down because you realize the movie is not very good. Well, this one is. This is a great, coming of age story, and there is a creepy dead body. These guys were a great bunch of actors. So sad, one of them is dead, one is a druggie, I don't know about the dark haired skinny kid. Okay, I just checked, he does a lot of cartoon voices, so he is doing okay. But who would have thought the chunky kid would grow up and marry Rebecca Romijn! Way to go Vern.

No one got it with the first clue. Matt guessed Zombie Land with the first quote. Nice guess, but sorry. Dad was the first to get it Wright with the second quote! Dan was second, he said he hadn't seen the movie in years and just put it together with the quotes, nice job. Cat was next and seemed unhappy she didn't get it with the first one. Then Em, and she seemed very iffy that she had it. Then Matt got it.

Well, Dad start putting together one of your random playlists! Nice job!

WTB!!! Finally!!!!!

Sorry everyone. I pretty much I forgot I won until Wednesday, and when I remembered I figured I would just wait until today to do the post.

Here is the quote:

If I could have only one food for the rest of my life, that's easy, pez, cherry flavored pez.

Here is your Wednesday quote:

Person #1- I'll only be young once!

Person #2- Ya, but you'll be stupid the rest of your life.

Here is the Friday give away quote. You guys need it!

We had all followed the Ray Brower story very closely because he was a kid our age. Three days before, he had gone out to pick blueberries and nobody had seen him since.
