Movie

Total Quotes : 3172
Love Like

I really like 'The Three Kings' DVD. I love that movie and all the extra footage and documentaries.

- A. J. Cook

College Year

I joined the Madras Christian College but dropped out after three months. Telugu music director Ramesh Naidu asked me to assist him, and I did so for over a year. I did think of rejoining college, but by then, I was discovering the musician in me. I worked with Illaya Raja and Raj Koti and soon shifted to commercials. This led to movie offers.

- A. R. Rahman

Originality Very

The demand in India is to have a hit, which becomes a promotion for the movie and makes people come to the theater. You have five songs and different promotions based on those. But when I do Western films, the need for originality is greater. Then I become very conscious about the writing.

- A. R. Rahman

Lawyers I Remember

I remember in high school thinking that I wanted to be a lawyer, and now I realize I saw that movie 'And Justice for All' when I was a kid and thought, 'That's what lawyers do, and I want to get up and yell and scream in the middle of a courtroom.'

- Aaron Douglas

Like Films

If it helps me in the way that if this movie is successful, I get to make more films, great, and the more films that I make and the more interest that I'm allowed to cover, the better for me and the better, hopefully, for the people who like to watch me.

- Aaron Eckhart

Magic Monkey

The newly released movie 'Noah' features a retelling of the creation story that clearly depicts Darwinian evolution transforming a single-cell organism into a monkey. The movie also seems to show magic in scenes more reminiscent of the occult than of the Bible story.

- Aaron Klein

Think Gonna

You know, every time a summer movie comes out, people think they're gonna get rich off of the merchandise.

- Aaron McGruder

Sometimes Couple

I can't remember my dreams more than a couple of seconds after I wake up. It's frustrating because sometimes I dream that I'm watching a really good movie.

- Aaron Sorkin

Away Studio

When a movie is being rolled out, the studio publicists and all our individual publicists get together and come up with bullet points and talking points - 'Make sure you stay away from this,' and 'Don't say that quite that way, because that quote can be taken out of context,' and that kind of thing.

- Aaron Sorkin

Television Studio

If I am writing a movie and I am stuck, I can call the studio and tell them it's delayed. You can't do that with television - you have air dates to meet.

- Aaron Sorkin

Very Jobs

If you lined up 10 writers and asked them to write a movie about Steve Jobs, you'd get 10 very different movies.

- Aaron Sorkin

Added Offices

'Steve Jobs' is my seventh movie. I believe, if you added them up, I don't think there is more than a total of 10 minutes that takes place in a person's home. They're all in offices, courtrooms, laboratories, things like that.

- Aaron Sorkin

Play Works

A song in a musical works best when a character has to sing - when words won't do the trick anymore. The same idea applies to a long speech in a play or a movie or on television. You want to force the character out of a conversational pattern.

- Aaron Sorkin

Doing Jennifer

I'll never be Jennifer Lawrence or Tom Cruise, someone who can hold a movie and then be charming and charismatic doing promotion. I haven't got what they've got. But at least I'm now comfortable just being myself.

- Aaron Taylor-Johnson

Human Beings About

A movie is about human beings, about humanity.

- Abbas Kiarostami

Want Very

From my very first movie, what was my concentration, my inspiration, was I didn't want to narrate something, I didn't want to tell a story. I wanted to show something, I wanted for them to make their own story from what they were seeing.

- Abbas Kiarostami

Always Projects

A good movie is made by an initial burst of energy, the way that, when you are in school, your class exercises are always better than your final projects.

- Abbas Kiarostami

Away Making

That's the thing about making a movie: You never finish editing. They just take it away from you.

- Abel Ferrara

Big Everybody

I'm not a big fan of talking about dying. And then I make a movie where I kill everybody.

- Abel Ferrara

My Life Costs

But I'm never gonna get to a point in my life where what it costs to shoot a movie is going to determine what it is. The limits of my imagination is the only thing that's gonna stop me.

- Abel Ferrara

Me Stop

No one can stop me from talking about my movie.

- Abel Ferrara

Think Like

Certain actors wanna get paid, they think working in a low-budget movie is being ripped off. But for others it's like, 'Yes, let's do it.'

- Abel Ferrara

TV Compact

I'd like to do more TV; TV is completely different than working in movies in a lot of ways, it's like making a really compact movie. Because you don't have as much time, especially hour long shows, they move so quickly.

- Abigail Breslin

Five Made

I made my first movie when I was five.

- Abigail Breslin

Like Set

Well, you know, I never want to feel like I have a set plan of what I'm supposed to do. I kind of like to go script by script, and if I like the character and like the story that's why I want to do a movie.

- Abigail Breslin

Love Would

I would love to do a 'Scream'-type movie.

- Abigail Breslin

Fantasy Dealing

The idea of it becomes a little freaky if you're dealing with someone who has trouble differentiating between fantasy and reality, but that's a concern no matter what kind of movie you're dealing with.

- Adam Arkin

Goal Wanted

When I initially started acting, all I wanted to do was to be in one movie. That's it. That was my goal.

- Adam Beach

Next Before

I always believed in if you give your best, people will see it, and it moves to the next level. I got my first movie, and I gave it my best. Before I was done with that movie, I was offered my first feature film.

- Adam Beach

Some Personally

If I don't direct a movie at some point, I've failed personally.

- Adam Brody

Offensive Depending

I like an interesting movie even if it's controversial or offensive, depending on your taste.

- Adam Brody

Bad Hobbit

As a first movie, 'The Hobbit' is not a bad place to start.

- Adam Brown

Young Own

I like the guys who wrote their own stuff and were able to perform it, like Seth Rogen. He popped off so young. When he did 'The 40-Year-Old Virgin,' and he was a co-producer on the movie, I was like, 'Oh my God: that's exactly what I want to do.'

- Adam DeVine

Love Crazy People

I'm one of those crazy people, if I'm watching the trailer for a movie and I'm really excited by it, I'll turn it off because I don't want to know anything. I want to be surprised because I love that more than knowing anything.

- Adam Driver

Other Before

Obviously, 'Lincoln' is not about the telegraph operator. There's a whole other movie before and after the two isolated scenes that I'm in.

- Adam Driver

Gotten Had

With the first 'Hatchet,' I had an epic battle with the ratings board. They kept giving the movie an NC-17. There is absolutely no way that movie should have gotten an NC-17. All the gore in it is so ridiculous and over-the-top that you can't take it seriously.

- Adam Green

Critical Soundtracks

Wes Craven's 'Shocker' is one of my favorite soundtracks. I don't know where that movie stands in the critical eye of cinema, but it was a really fun movie because of all the bands that were part of it.

- Adam Green

See Current

When I wrote 'Hatchet,' I knew that I was not re-inventing the wheel. That was never my intention. My goal was to make an '80s-style slasher flick that actually holds up. Basically, I wanted to make the movie that I wanted to see and pay no mind to current trends or conventions.

- Adam Green

Horror Entertaining

A movie with nothing but violence is not a good movie. But one that is actually entertaining around the horror is one that people will remember and watch again and again.

- Adam Green

Want Made

'E.T.' was the movie that made me want to make movies in the first place, and it was the first movie that made me focus on writing instead of what happens in the movie.

- Adam Green

Nature Jaws

'Jaws' was the ultimate man vs. nature movie, and it was a movie that was basically three people against the elements, so that was the biggest influence on 'Frozen.'

- Adam Green

Brothers Been

'Step Brothers 2' would have been fun, there's no doubt about it. Maybe someday. Does that idea age? I don't know. It all depends on how the movie ages.

- Adam McKay

Happen TV

Nothing is more enjoyable for me than when I'm watching a movie or a TV show and there's that sense that anything can happen. It is the most fun feeling in the world.

- Adam McKay

Steal Almost

You have a guy like Bernie Madoff literally steal $80 billion, you know, AIG steal hundreds of billions, Goldman Sachs. Crime has changed so much, and to really do a movie with, like, drug dealers or drug smugglers is kind of almost quaint at this point.

- Adam McKay

Doing Another

I was shocked when 'The Hobbit' ended where it ended. I wasn't paying attention to what they were doing; I didn't know they had another movie, and I couldn't believe it was when the dragon came out.

- Adam McKay

Tell About

I'll tell you one thing... no doubt about it, my favorite kind of comedy is talking head comedy. I mean, if it were up to me, I'd do a whole entire movie that was just around a dinner table.

- Adam McKay

Love Walt

I gotta say - if I clicked on a movie interview, and the first part was all about Walt Whitman, I'd love that article.

- Adam McKay

Comedy Which

I am actually talking about possibly adapting 'The Boys,' by Garth Ennis, which would not be a comedy, but an action movie with comedy elements to it.

- Adam McKay

Next Eventually

Eventually I got the call for 'Iron Man,' and I read sides that had nothing to do with what I did in the movie, and I performed it once while no one was in the room - it was videotaped, and I'm sure Shane Black was watching it from his helicopter or something. And then I got a call the next day that I was going down to shoot it.

- Adam Pally

Magic Very

It was funny to run into girls I knew after the movie came out because they would say, 'I saw you on 'Magic Mike,' but there was this look of embarrassment. It was very cute.

- Adam Rodriguez

Always Wanted

I've always wanted to do a family movie.

- Adam Sandler

Compare Been

It definitely has learning a lesson about the way you're living your life. I wouldn't compare our movie to that, but it has a structure where it's about a man who doesn't appreciate all that he has and finds out at the end that life has been great and he has to enjoy that.

- Adam Sandler

Been Projects

I'm a lifelong movie addict, and one of my favorite projects is making replica props and costumes. Nearly every one of these - from R2D2 to Hellboy's revolver - ends with the paint job. And it's not just cosmetic. The paint literally tells a story: what this thing is made of, where it's been, what it's been used for, and for how long.

- Adam Savage

Like Replica

There's this group online that I frequent. It's a group of prop crazies just like me called the Replica Props Forum, and it's people who trade, make and travel in information about movie props.

- Adam Savage

Magic Specialty

Back when I was a professional model-maker at Industrial Light & Magic, my specialty was hard-edged construction - spaceships, miniature sets, and architectural stuff. These objects were sometimes just 12 inches across yet needed enough detail to fill a movie screen.

- Adam Savage

Work Project

I don't know if there's a particular project, but one movie that I was really disappointed I didn't get to work on was Judd Apatow's 'Walk Hard.'

- Adam Schlesinger

Records TV

Either I need an assignment with a strict deadline - like something for a movie or a TV show or whatever - or else I need to create a made-up deadline for myself for my own records. Otherwise, I don't write anything.

- Adam Schlesinger

Help Like

It is not like casting me in your movie is going to help you get financing.

- Adam Scott

Like Role

For me to get a lead role in a real movie is something to jump at. It's not like I get to do that all of the time.

- Adam Scott

Thought Raging

I was a pretentious teenager, so of course I had, you know, 'Raging Bull' posters and all of that. 'Raging Bull' is not a pretentious movie, but me having the poster was a pretentious action. I even grew a goatee and had a Knicks cap, because I thought I wanted to be like Spike Lee.

- Adam Scott

Wanted Actor

'Raiders of the Lost Ark' is my favorite movie, and it's why I wanted to be an actor.

- Adam Scott

Movies Whole

'Cloverfield' and 'REC' are great examples of movies that took kind of tired genres, the monster movie and the zombie film, and by filming them in found footage, it was a new perspective. It gives you a whole new take and helps you re-experience that all over again.

- Adam Wingard

More TV

I don't really watch a lot of TV, to be honest. I'm more of a movie girl, or I Netflix stuff.

- Adelaide Kane

One Of The Things

One of the things I liked about the movie 'Minority Report' was they used a lot of futurists as consultants to really try to understand what the world really would be like in 50 years.

- Adena Friedman

Someone Ever

If someone ever decides to tell my story, it will make for a typical masala movie.

- Adnan Sami

Own Very

I was watching Monster's Ball, which is a fabulous movie. It's just a little gem: beautifully shot, and shot in a way I never would have done. It made me feel very old, really, because it wasn't eccentric for its own sake, it was just very original.

- Adrian Lyne

Love Wanted

I wanted to make a movie about the arbitrary nature of love.

- Adrian Lyne

Book New

I have a new book coming out, so I do movie, book, movie, book, movie, book, every place we go.

- Adriana Trigiani

Writing Big

I'm directing and writing the 'Big Stone Gap' movie.

- Adriana Trigiani

Big Going

One of the big problems we had was, 'Where are we going to put the trailer?' So now they've found places - they did 'A Walk in the Woods,' they put it with that movie 'War Room,' they put it with 'Ricki and the Flash.'

- Adriana Trigiani

Good Imagination

My favorite action movie growing up was 'Supergirl.' It wasn't good by any stretch of the imagination, but it was my favorite because I wanted to be her. I have a Supergirl tattoo.

- Adrianne Palicki

Away Films

'Swept Away' is one of my favorite films of my father. I've seen it about 20 times. It's a cult movie in Italy.

- Adriano Giannini

Think I Think

For the most part, I think that people enjoy seeing a movie where they can just have fun in.

- Agnes Bruckner

Think I Think

For the most part, I think that people enjoy seeing a movie where they can just have fun.

- Agnes Bruckner

Watching Like

A femtosecond is comparable to one second in 32 million years. It is like watching a 32-million-year movie to see one second.

- Ahmed Zewail

Bad Some

I miss my Dad. My Dad loved cheesy monster movies, so we'd have Godzilla movie marathons. Those are some of my favorite memories, laughing at how the monster outfits were so bad, like black garbage bags for heads.

- Ahmet Zappa

Career Concerned

My thing about looking good is that it should be the character. If I'm playing a character who's concerned about his body - an athlete, say - I'll get in shape. If I'm playing a character who doesn't or wouldn't, I don't. I almost never get in shape for a movie, even though I know it would be a good career move.

- Aidan Quinn

Other Great Way

It's more important for me to have a good record with good music and be part of a movie that's good and where the music is used in a really great way. That's the important thing. The other stuff you want to say about it, I don't care.

- Aimee Mann

Game Play

Sunday is like this entertainment scrum for me, because I've only got a day, one day of fun. So I want to have brunch, and I want to see a movie, and I want to watch 'Game of Thrones,' and I'm trying to watch 'The Sopranos' from the beginning, and I want to play four hours of video games. So, it's, like, as regimented as my work life.

- Aisha Tyler

I Think I Remember

I remember leaving the first 'Matrix' movie feeling completely radicalized, completely changed. I think we all, from our ordinary lives, like to think about putting ourselves into these extraordinary situations and wonder how we'd respond.

- Aisha Tyler

Franchise Fulcrum

I see the first 'Bourne' movie as really kind of a fulcrum in changing the modern action film, where things are really gritty and really character-driven. Think about how the entire Bond franchise was completely radicalized by Bourne.

- Aisha Tyler

Love Goal

My goal is definitely to direct features - action movies, that's my favorite genre. So I would love to do the 'Halo' movie.

- Aisha Tyler

More Excited

I was more excited than scared, at the opportunity to work in an English movie.

- Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

Shampoo Heat

I use Pureology Shampoo and Conditioner, and after shampooing, I'll put the conditioner on, go watch a movie, and wash it out later. When you have black girl hair, once we wash, we've gotta do the whole press and get in the edges and everything. That's a lot of heat to go back to straight on a daily basis.

- Aja Naomi King

Pants Kid

When I was a kid, I used to sneak down the stairs when my folks were listening to 'The Witch's Tale' and 'Inner Sanctum' on the radio. I went to see 'Frankenstein' in the movie theater and got the pants scared off of me.

- Al Feldstein

Goes Napoleon

You re-watch 'Napoleon Dynamite', and there's a lot of thrift shopping that goes on in that movie; there's a lot of funny stuff. It's definitely amusing, and paying 99 cents for a samurai sword is amazing.

- Al Madrigal

Doing Role

There are a lot of roles in Shakespeare, basically. If I feel that the script is a movie, I would be interested in doing any role of Shakespeare's.

- Al Pacino

Rough Cut

Francis Ford Coppola did this early on. You tape a movie, like a radio show, and you have the narrator read all the stage directions. And then you go back like a few days later and then you listen to the movie. And it sort of plays in your mind like a film, like a first rough cut of a movie.

- Al Pacino

Like TV

I've done a movie and a TV series, and someday I'd like to do a successful movie and a successful TV series. That would be nice.

- Al Yankovic

Becoming Agent

I'm excited about becoming a transmedia storyteller. The idea that we can tell the 'Agent Mom' story online with MTV Comics and build a fan base that we can take over to Paramount to discuss turning that story it into a movie is just awesome.

- Alaina Huffman

Making Making Movies

The hardest thing for me about making movies, and that included 'M*A*S*H' because it was made like a movie, was starting and stopping.

- Alan Alda

Very Concept

The whole question of fiduciary responsibility is a very old concept. You could make a movie about someone making that rule at any point in history, and within a few months, it will turn out to be timely.

- Alan Alda

Hollywood Sometime

I would like to have a movie under my own control sometime, and see what could be done with it. Who knows? Maybe Hollywood will make an improvisational movie someday.

- Alan Arkin

City Wait

The last time I heard real screaming in the theatre was when I went to see a movie I did years ago, called 'Wait Until Dark.' Now, my mother was the least emotional person on the planet, but when I got killed in the movie, she stood up and screamed, 'That's my son!' At Radio City Music Hall in New York!

- Alan Arkin

Hollywood Some

Filmmakers, they tell me they want to make movies. I say, 'Good, go out, buy a $500 camera, get some friends and make a movie. Don't go to Hollywood. Stay wherever you are.'

- Alan Arkin

Love Doing

If you want to be an actor and you love acting, you can do it whether you're doing something else or not. You can be connected with community theater or make your own little movies. But if you want to be a movie star, you've got a tough road ahead of you.

- Alan Arkin

Career Beneath

I'm used to American actors who have a movie career thinking television acting is beneath them.

- Alan Ball

Small Very

Sometimes with people I know, they're playing the hunky action guy and there's resistance to them coming out because it's so connected to straight masculinity. There's a plastic kind of movie star who has a very short shelf with very small kind of ambition. I see that but I still don't agree with it.

- Alan Cumming

Based Gene

I wrote three mysteries and then a contemporary spy novel that was unbelievably derivative - completely based on 'The Conversation,' the movie with Gene Hackman. Amazingly, the character in the book looks exactly like... Gene Hackman.

- Alan Furst

Think I Think

I think any movie star who refuses autographs has a hell of a nerve.

- Alan Ladd
