Movie lines I love:

[Kinder has just finished a psychiatric evaluation of Reisman's troops]
MAJOR JOHN REISMAN: So what does that give you?
CAPT. STUART KINDER: Doesn't give me anything. But along with these other results, it gives YOU just about the most twisted, anti-social bunch of psychopathic deformities I have ever run into! And the worst, the most dangerous of the bunch, is Maggott. You've got one religious maniac, one malignant dwarf, two near-idiots... and the rest I don't even wanna think about!
MAJOR JOHN REISMAN: Well, I can't think of a better way to fight a war.
CAPT. STUART KINDER: These people don't know their enemy is the Germans. They think the enemy is their own United States Army!
MAJOR JOHN REISMAN: Maybe that's because the Germans haven't done anything to them yet. 
-from The Dirty Dozen (1967)


I never went in for embroidery, just results.

-from The Dirty Dozen (1967), spoken by Major John Reisman


Very pretty, General. Very pretty. But, can they fight? 

-from The Dirty Dozen (1967), spoken by Pinkley [impersonating a general]

1968: Oscar - Best Effects, Sound Effects

Thought of one!!!! Thought of one!!!!

Morgan Freeman (of course)

Shawshank Redemption (clearly)

Tim Robbinson locks himself into the library and plays opera over the tannoy

Freeman "I still don't know what that italian lady was singing, but at that moment i felt free"

Top top top moment that came to mind as soon as i saw the prison camp pictures

Pixies~ Oh, definitely that one! What a great film, too. :)

Owen~ It was noisy and gritty but I recall laughing so much at some scenes. I need a good belly laugh and wish I had the movie hanging around the house.
