A non-writing writer is a monster courting insanity
This is a jury of your peers. They watch the same TV movies. They belong to Oprah’s Book Club.

They’ll argue you lacked compassion. You were the one who took things too far.

No! Try not. Do, or do not. There is no try.
I don't want to see the zipper in the back of the monster suit.
Like everybody else who goes to the movies, I want to believe the monster is real.
Ive never been a big believer in ghosts or the spirit world, and for me, that was part of the point of the movie, ... What the Ghostbusters represented was the triumph of human courage and human ingenuity. People create their own monsters. Our fears come from within us, not outside.
Heavy role in the movies that I've done that I have loved and fit my soul;
A Simple Plan, Monster's Ball, Sling Blade, One False Move, Bad Santa even. I mean Bad Santa is a comedy, and it's a very dark comedy, and it's become like iconic, you know.
If there be monsters, they can be slain.
Where there is life, there is hope.
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.
Sometimes I feel like I have walked into the middle of a movie.
Maybe I can make my own movie. The film will be the story of my life. No, not my life, but of this experience. I'll call it what the lady who is the prosecutor called me. MONSTER.
Monsters are real, and ghosts are real too. They live inside us, and sometimes, they win.

I don't really mind playing tabloid monster. I always liked those characters in the old movies.
My mommy always said there were no monsters - no real ones - but there are.

I was kind of a dark kid. I loved Halloween, and I loved vampires and the black and white old monster movies.

It's not a monster movie. It's a supernatural thriller.
I think movies are getting dumber, actually. Where it used to be 50/50 and it's 3% good and 97% stupid.
I thought Godzilla was a mess, the monster had no character and the humans didn't either. They forgot to make the movie that went along with all these wonderful effects.
It wasn't the greatest script in the world, but not many people can say they've played a wicked king in a swashbuckling Arthurian special-effects monster movie.
I think what all the Universal monster movies are defined by, and what makes them very special, is that it's really the only genre entirely unto itself, in which you fear the monster and fear for the monster. That's a very hard thing to do. To fear for and fear at the same time is extremely unique.
All you need to make a movie is a girl and a gun.
I've always been a horror movie fan, since I was a kid.

All of a sudden I found myself doing things like 'Robot Monster' and 'Cat-Women of the Moon,' and I didn't know what the devil was going on. But if you're going to do areally bad movie, at least you do one that is at the top of the all-time bad-movie list.
As a fan of science fiction and as a kid who loves monsters, science fiction movies and this, that and the other, there's no real way to make a career out of that. Especially when I grew up.
The paradox is that, by children taking shortcuts through computer games, through fantasies, through movies that load on all the emotional stimulation of encountering life in a stylized way - all of this is the equivalent of mainlining of paleolithic emotions, emotions about combat, about personal success, about overcoming monsters, about making powerful friendships, about winning wars and entering new territory.
The Hulk is the most difficult Marvel property because it's always about balance. Is he a monster? Is he a hero? Are you going to root for a protagonist who spends all his time trying to stop the reason you came to the movie from happening? It's always a dance
