Remember Some of the All-Time Great Villains?…

Hannibal Lecter?

Freddie Krueger?

Darth Vader??

Amateurs.

Hands down…the Joker sets a new standard in movie villainry. At least…Heath Ledger’s version of him.

I think they’ll have to retire the Joker after this one. I can’t imagine anyone coming close to Ledger’s performance. (Sad, though, that he is not here to see it.)

Oh…Christian Bale was pretty good as Batman, too. 🙂

Little kids should not see this movie. Everyone else…go.

It is especially fun to watch at midnight with a theater full of fanatics.

(Yawn) I think I need a nap.

Favorite Lines from "The Princess Bride"

So, okay, I’m strange.

I have this thing about injecting movie lines into conversations without warning. People who recognize the movie line usually laugh; others look at me like I have Turret’s or something.

The Princess Bride, in my opinion, has probably more fun and memorable lines than any other movie I’ve seen. So for your amazement amusement…below are five of my favorite lines from this classic:

5. “No more rhymes, now, I mean it.” “Anybody want a peanut?”

4. “Mawwiage. Mawwiage is wot bwings us toogevah tooday. Mawwiage, that bwessed awwangement, that dweam wifin a dweam…”

3. “Tyrone, you know how much I love watching you work, but I’ve got my country’s 500th anniversary to plan, my wedding to arrange, my wife to murder and Guilder to frame for it; I’m swamped.”

2. “Lemme ‘splain. No, there is too much. Lemme sum up.”

And the number one favorite line from The Princess Bride….

1. “Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.”

So…any other Princess Bride fans out there? What’s your favorite line?

As you no doubt have read below, my son The Director turned 18 this week. He is passionate about his dream to be a filmmaker, and it’s more than a proud father’s boast to say he really has an eye for it. He’s a natural. Seriously. No, seriously.

Anyway, suffice it to say we are movie buffs around here. And here’s something else interesting: God speaks to us through the movies. No, seriously.
