Carpe diem. (Seize the day.)— Horace
Practical All Time Best Movie quotations
One day, you will wake up and there won't be any more time to do the thing you've always wanted. Do it now.
They may take our lives, but they'll never take our freedom!
I think the best roles are in dark movies.
It's roles that aren't you. It's fun playing someone that's not me. If I'm playing me all the time, then it's not acting. It's just being yourself.
Every time you judge someone else, you reveal an unhealed part of yourself.
What we got here is a failure to communicate.
I am big. It's the pictures that got small.
Every time a bell rings, an angel gets his wings.
Don't compare your life to others. There's no comparison between the sun and the moon. They shine when it's their time.
I'm not bad, I'm just drawn that way.
You is kind. You is smart. You is important.
Youre only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!
The best revenge is not to be like your enemy.
Open the pod bay doors, Hal.
'The Sopranos,' for instance, is arguably the best cable show of all time.
They could have made a movie, but that show ended so perfectly, it would almost be a disadvantage to make a movie like that. Then again, if you made a 'Sopranos' movie, people would be lined around the block to go see it.
You try to make them comfortable so they can do what they're best at, and make them shine. You always want to make an actor shine. I'm of the mind that there's no one - you, your mother, anyone, that if in the right place at the right time in the right context, couldn't shine in a movie. And so if it means, "Oh, I have to make them uncomfortable," then whatever it takes to get what I need up onscreen. It's all in the service of the story.
Do not set aside your happiness. Do not wait to be happy in the future. The best time to be happy is always now.
You know, "Moonlight" deserves best picture [on Oscar].
What I mean by tarnished is the moment - being able to be in front of all your peers and being able to thank everyone involved and particularly when it's a movie that has some pivotal social relevance, like "Moonlight," particularly in a time where, with this new transitional government, LGBT rights are just being stripped. This win means something.
It's so hard for people to give up their cell phones or their ideas of being connected to everything all the time in order to get an immersive experience. That's the best way to make art. It's almost like you have to treat it like you're going into a submarine, and Noah Baumbach totally agrees with that. There's not a real other life that happens outside of the movie while it's being shot, which I like.
Flying is my favorite time in the world.
When I'm sitting in a plane, it's amazing because it's quiet and there's no cell phones and no one to talk to you. It's my favorite time. I read all my scripts. I catch up on my movies. I sleep. It's the best. There's no one telling you, "Time to go!"
Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass away.
I would be lying to you if I said I wouldn't love for it [Equalizer] to become a franchise, I would love for it to become a hit and all that great stuff. Who knows-you just make the best movie you can make, you know it's like, eat the whole thing, one piece at a time. And then, we'll see what happens, I would love for it to be.
Movies principally require the best of everybody, all at the same time, being the best they can be. Not just like five people being the best they've ever been, and 10 people not being the best they could be. It's like if everybody is either doing their greatest work, or the whole house of cards falls apart.
I didn't invent the rainy day, man. I just own the best umbrella. That’s one of my favorite lines of all time. It’s from a movie called Almost Famous. I think what it means is that life is going to throw all kinds of stuff at you, good and bad. But all you can do is get out there and try to stay dry.
There comes a day when you realize turning the page is the best feeling in the world, because you realize there is so much more to the book than the page you were stuck on.
But I would say maybe just from an actress's perspective, probably 'Woman Under the Influence' is the best movie of all time... The style of filmmaking and the performances ... you don't feel like you're watching a film.
