A star on a movie set is like a time bomb. That bomb has got to be defused so people can approach it without fear.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
My movie is born first in my head, dies on paper; is resuscitated by the living persons and real objects I use, which are killed on film but, placed in a certain order and projected on to a screen, come to life again like flowers in water.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

I discovered early in my movie work that a movie is never any better than the stupidest man connected with it. There are times when this distinction may be given to the writer or director. Most often it belongs to the producer.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
You want to hear about insanity? I was found running naked through the jungles in Mexico. At the Mexico City airport, I decided I was in the middle of a movie and walked out on the wing on takeoff. My body... my liver... okay, my brain... went.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
All television ever did was shrink the demand for ordinary movies. The demand for extraordinary movies increased. If any one thing is wrong with the movie industry today, it is the unrelenting effort to astonish.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The words Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, which I saw on an Italian movie poster, are perhaps the briefest statement imaginable of the basic appeal of movies. This appeal is what attracts us, and ultimately what makes us despair when we begin to understand how seldom movies are more than this.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Each day a few more lies eat into the seed with which we are born, little institutional lies from the print of newspapers, the shock waves of television, and the sentimental cheats of the movie screen.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Cinema is the culmination of the obsessive, mechanistic male drive in western culture. The movie projector is an Apollonian straight-shooter, demonstrating the link between aggression and art. Every pictorial framing is a ritual limitation, a barred precinct.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Howard Hughes: Sure. Who doesn't like tits?More [08/04/2005 12:08:00]
Steven Spielberg: So, Austin, what did you think of the opening credits?
Austin Powers: Well, I can't believe Sir Steven Spielberg, the grooviest film maker in the history of cinema is making a movie about my life. Very Shagadelic baby, yeh.
Austin Powers: Having said that, I do have some thoughts.
Steven Spielberg: [holding an Oscar] Really? Ah, my friend here thinks its fine the way it is.
Austin Powers: Well no offense Sir Stevie, but you gatta have mojo babe, yeh. Hit it.More [08/08/2005 12:08:00]

Bruce Wayne: [as Alfred opens the curtains] Bats are nocturnal.
Alfred Pennyworth: Bats might be, but even for billionaire playboys, three o'clock is pushing it. The price of leading a double life, I think. Look at who's made an impression.
[shows the newspaper to Bruce]
Bruce Wayne: Theatricality and deception are powerful weapons, Alfred. It's a good start.
Alfred Pennyworth: If those are to be the first of many other injuries to come, it will be wise to find a suitable excuse. Polo, for instance.
Bruce Wayne: I'm not learning polo, Alfred.
Alfred Pennyworth: Strange injuries and non-existent social life, these things beg the question as to what exactly does Bruce Wayne do with his time and his money.
Bruce Wayne: And what does that make me do?
Alfred Pennyworth: Drive sports cars, date movie stars, buy things that are not for sale... who knows, Master Wayne? You start pretending to have fun, you might even have a little by accident.More [08/15/2005 12:08:00]

Narrator: It's called a changeover. The movie goes on, and nobody in the audience has any idea.More [09/07/2005 12:09:00]
Narrator: Tyler was a night person. While the rest of us slept, he worked. He had one part time job as a projectionist. See, a movie doesn't come all on one real. It comes on a few. See, there are these little dots on the screen.
Tyler Durden: In the movie industry, we call them cigarette burns.
Narrator: That's the cue for a change-over. The movie keeps on going, and nobody in the audience has any clue.
Tyler Durden: Why would anyone want this shit job?
Narrator: Because it affords him other interesting opportunities.
Tyler Durden: Like splicing single frames of porn into family films...More [09/07/2005 12:09:00]
Tyler Durden: Man, I see in fight club the strongest and smartest men who've ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off.More [09/09/2005 12:09:00]

Daryl Zero: I can't possibly overstate the importance of good research. Everyone goes through life dropping crumbs. If you can recognize the crumbs, you can trace a path all the way back from your death certificate to the dinner and a movie that resulted in you in the first place. But research is an art, not a science, because anyone who knows what they're doing can find the crumbs, the wheres, whats, and whos. The art is in the whys: the ability to read between the crumbs, not to mix metaphors. For every event, there is a cause and effect. For every crime, a motive. And for every motive, a passion. The art of research is the ability to look at the details, and see the passion.More [10/07/2005 12:10:00]
Kira: Look up "muse" in the dictionary. Go on, page seven twenty-eight. Read it!
Sonny: Okay, all right. I'll read it.
Sonny: "Muse; any one of the nine sister..."
Kira: Like the album cover? Mm-hmm?
Sonny: [reading] "Any one of the nine sister goddesses in Greek mythology, presiding over song, and poetry, and the arts and do you believe me now, Sonny?" How'd you do that? What's going on?
Kira: [Points at the TV] The television!
[the television comes on and is showing a movie in black and white with two characters, Nick and Vargas, having a conversation when Nick pulls a gun]
Nick: What should I do, Sonny? Dive at him, um, or make a martini?
Vargas: Who you talking to?
Nick: Sonny Malone. He doesn't believe Kira's a muse.
Sonny: How can you be talking to me? You're a movie!
Vargas: I ain't got time for this, Malone. Brenda's the only one that saw me at the racetrack. Now if the lady says she's a muse, she's a muse.
[Brenda Trent enters, played by Kira, who is still also outside of the television screen]
Vargas: Who's that? Brenda!
Brenda Trent: Sonny.
[Sonny slumps into a chair]
Nick: I think he needs a drink.
Kira: It's okay; I'll take care of it. Thanks!
Nick: Good luck on the opening of your joint, kid.

Nick: Wish I could be there.More [10/18/2005 12:10:00]
Corky St. Clair: I was shopping for my wife Bonnie. I buy most of her clothes and Mrs Pearl was in the same shop! And it just was an accident you know, we started talking... about panty hose, she was saying... whatever that's not the point of the story but what the point is is that through this accidental meeting... it's like a Hitchcock movie you know where you're thrown into a rubber bag and put in the trunk of a car, you find people. You find them. Something, is is it karma? Maybe. But we found him, that's the important thing. And I got Bonnie a wonderful pantsuit.More [10/22/2005 12:10:00]

Short Girl: One time she met John Stamos on a plane -
Jessica Lopez: - And he told her she was pretty.
Bethany Byrd: One time she punched me in the face... it was awesome.More [11/02/2005 12:11:00]
Steve: Why did Steve go to the movies with you? Well, first of all, Steve likes the movies. Steve had the night off. Steve said, 'Hey, a movie sounds good,' plus he got an invitation.
Mary: Why is Steve referring to himself in the third person?
Steve: What are you talking about?More [12/17/2005 12:12:00]

You know what, I'm very interested in acting, but right now I'm busy promoting my album and going on tour because that's my first love, but I'm very interested in doing some parts that may come my way. I've been offered a few movie parts so far, but I have to really concentrate on singing. But it's something I'm interested in doing eventually. I haven't been offered a part that truly inspires me to take time off, though.More [03/22/2006 12:03:00]
I'd really like to make my first movie before I make my next album.More [03/22/2006 12:03:00]
"I turned down a part in "Valley Of The Dolls" because it depicted me as a singer and that's the kind of movie I don't want to do. I'd like a role similiar to many of Angelina Jolie's. A little gritty, but interesting to watch."More [03/22/2006 12:03:00]
I remember seeing the movie To Sir With Love when I was a little girl.More [03/22/2006 12:03:00]
It was so embarrassing, everytime I see it, I blush. Imagine if you saw yourselves like that. It's one thing to get dressed up and do the movie star thing, but I mean, it's my job to be outside of that and it's not like I'm on the outside when they're all watching me.

I do not like being in my bathing suit. Especially in front of strangers, especially in front of cameras. I can't say that I would ever do a movie in a bikini againMore [03/23/2006 12:03:00]

It could potentially be something big but come what may, we have closure on a very sad chapter of our lives when the show was cancelled. Now we have this movie that stands on its own and hopefully we're all part of something special and I think we are.More [04/05/2006 12:04:00]
When you're the one character that changes dramatically in the movie ... it better be a change for the better. I think it's an improvement on the past. It's a more likely relationship. A screenwriter would fall in love with the woman he's writing for, his lead actress. I think there wasn't really enough of a love connection on the first one.More [04/06/2006 12:04:00]
I think people go to movies and they know too much about the movie before they go into it, whether it's the advertising or they're reading too many stories about it. And they know all the essential elements of the film before they even go into it. And I think that sabotages a thriller.More [04/06/2006 12:04:00]
We meet before the movie and she gives you charts with sounds on them and makes a tape of examples. While they are setting up the scene, I go with her to the trailer and we go through the scene and correct the speech.More [04/06/2006 12:04:00]
Well, actors get very frustrated with giving control to other people. They have their own ideas and wants for their characters. Warren Beatty once told me that he thought actors ended up directing out of frustration. If you have a strong sense of how to communicate a film, you should direct. The problem is that it is a huge commitment. I'd rather direct a play than a film due to the time. A movie can tie you up for a year or more.More [04/06/2006 12:04:00]
Like I said about Freaked, people tend to find these films, and I think that in the end the cool thing about a movie is that it can be sort of burnt temporarily, but then it's burnt into the fabric of your culture.More [04/07/2006 12:04:00]
But he isn't exactly sure what the future holds. In the short run, he is writing another script and has talked with Reeves about collaborating again.] I'm happy to just shoot ads and not make another movie for another four years, ... Ideally I'd like to do choice things ... but I'd like to do a lot of them.More [04/07/2006 12:04:00]
The new movie I'm working on right now is very autobiographical. It's about a television actor who drinks too much and gets blackballed from the industry, and then he decides to break back in by directing his own movieMore [04/07/2006 12:04:00]
So for directors, actors, producers, writers-whoever encompasses the creative elements of a film-you have a hit, everyone's happy, and you're the hottest thing in the world. But if the movie doesn't open, then those realities do come into play.More [04/07/2006 12:04:00]
It's lovely to go out with your kids to watch a movie you're a part of and see them enjoy it. I suppose Stella, who is 7 1/2 now, will remember in 20 years time that she went to the opening of Shrek 2 in Los Angeles with her pappy.More [04/10/2006 12:04:00]

When some people get parts, they feel they can now relax, but for me it was always the opposite. Sometimes before I do a movie or before I act out a scene, I may not sleep well the night before. If I don't know what the scene is about, I might get all worked up.More [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
I knew the audience that would come to see this would be adults and kids and the older, wrinkled kids will love this movie too.More [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
I tell you one of the great things about this movie is, with all that's going on around the world right now, it's just good to go to a movie where you don't have to think too hard, just have a good time, and relax and be crazy.More [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
Krush Groove didn't cost a lot of money. I think it was $3 million at the time, I don't think Warner Bros. that distributed the movie knew that it would at all last and they would make some money, it did at the time.More [04/11/2006 12:04:00]

You never know how things will last, if they will last, and how people will use them in the future. It was a fun movie for young people at the time in the 80s; but it struck a cord with people and it has lasted so I'm very proud of being a part of that.More [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
