My favorite movies in 2011 || Midnight In Paris

Paul: “Nostalgia is denial - denial of the painful present… the name for this denial is golden age thinking - the erroneous notion that a different time period is better than the one ones living in - its a flaw in the romantic imagination of those people who find it difficult to cope with the present..”

My favorite movies in 2011 || The Adventures of Tintin

Captain Haddock: I thought you were an optimist.
Tintin: You were wrong, weren’t you? I’m a realist.
Captain Haddock: Ah, it’s just another name for a quitter.
Tintin: You can call me what you like. Don’t you get it? We failed.
Captain Haddock: Failed. There are plenty of others willing to call you a failure. A fool. A loser. A hopeless souse. Don’t you ever say it of yourself. You send out the wrong signal, that is what people pick up. Don’t you understand? You care about something, you fight for it. You hit a wall, you push through it. There’s something you need to know about failure, Tintin. You can never let it defeat you.

My favorite movies in 2011 || Drive

Driver: “If I drive for you, you get your money. That’s a guarantee. Tell me where we start, where we’re going and where we’re going afterwards, I give you five minutes when you get there. Anything happens in that five minutes and I’m yours, no matter what. Anything a minute either side of that and you’re on your own. I don’t sit in while you’re running it down. I don’t carry a gun. I drive. ”
