I Love It When A Post Comes Together! Mr. Bruce’s Top 10 Most Memorable Quotes Of 2010

Well it seemed almost unfair to miss out on a years full of amazing one liners and quips — so I thought I only fair to make a list of the Top 10 Quotes Of 2010. If your social life revolves around quoting movie dialogue to your friends around the clock — lats how it goes, in my circle there is a million and one situations where we’ve wanted to say something but instead yarned endlessly on the dialogue from our favorite films. Thankfully, 2010 was no exception and I think those few films deserve some recognition.

You’ll notice that the list is dominated mostly by Scott Pilgrim vs. The World quotes — because frankly every line in that film is pure gold. Don’t hate me for it, but really it’s either that or campy Clash quotes. So enjoy my list of Scott Pilgrim quotes plus one or two other one-liners!

in no particular order
  • “Dreams feel real while we’re in them. It’s only when we wake up that we realize something was actually strange.” – Cobb, Inception
  •  ” I know we’re all afraid. But my father told me: someday, someone was gonna have take a stand. Someday, someone was gonna have to say enough! This could be that day. Trust your senses. And don’t look this bitch in the eye.” Perseus, Clash of The Titans
  • ” We are Sex Bob-Omb and we are here to make you think about death and get sad and stuff. ” – Scott Pilgrim, SPvTW
  • “If I peed my pants would you pretend that I just got wet from the rain? ” – Scott Pilgrim, SPvTW
  • “Look, I didn’t write the gay handbook. If you got a problem with it, take it up with Liberace’s ghost. ” – Wallace Wells, SPvTW

Liam Neeson Jumps Ship And Is Cast In Battleships

What I love about Liam Neeson as an actor is that no matter what film he’s in, whether it fails or not he always seems to come out on top — he steals the show, and lets face it he’s become one of the IT factors for successful films these days. We last saw him in The A-Team as Colonel Hannibal Smith and in Clash Of The Titans as olympian god Zeus, but now Neeson has been cast in the upcoming Universal Studio’s adaption of the popular board-game Battleship.

It seems to me that when starting of his career, Neeson wen’t for more Drama oriented films — going for the deeper films. But now as his career seems to grow, he has thrown aside the drama and traded it in for some wholesome action and thrillers. Yesterday (or today depending where you are in the world) filming capped off for the Michael Bay produced action adventure beneath director Peter BergDeadline reports that actor Neeson, 58, will star alongside Alexander Skarsgaard, Rihanna and Brooklyn Decker — playing Admiral Shane.

Based loosely on the board game, Battleship follows A fleet of ships is forced to do battle with an armada of unknown origins in order to discover and thwart their destructive goals — so not very siilar to the game, which is a good thing…trust me. Shooting for the film has begun in Hawaii, so in the next few days (or week) we should be getting some set pics — so stay tuned for more from filming of Battleships.

Dark, Edgy Snow White In 3D..hmmm

Deadline Hollywood reports Brett Ratner will be joining Relativity Media to produce The Brothers Grimm: Snow White, about well….you get the picture. Also screenwriter Melisa Wallack, who wrote and directed the 2007 Indie film Bill wrote a “edgy 3-D re-imagining”, which by all means we can look forward to a screwing over of a classic fairytale. Plus we have a quote from Ratner:

“This is not your grandfather’s Snow White. Melisa went back to the 500 year old folk tale and put in some of the things that were missing from Walt Disney’s film. His dwarves were miners, and here they are robbers. There is also a dragon that was in the original folk tale. Walt made one of the great movies of all time, but ours is edgy and there is more comedy. The original, made for its time, was soft compared to what we’re going to do.”

This sounds like a joke to me, I mean robbing dwarves!? Come on. Also with what Ratner says about ‘the original’ is quote, “soft compared to what we’re going to do” is because it was a children’s movie! Seriously if there was ever a time to cap these kind of films, now would be the time. But its clear that there is a demographic that would love to see this kind of film, like Tim Burton‘s Alice In Wonderland (which is also thought was a little over hyped) which proved there is a large population that do like the darker twists on classic fairytales. Just not me.
