It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves.
-- Sir Edmund Hillary
Movies are one of the bad habits that corrupted our century. Of their many sins, I offer as the worst their effect on the intellectual side of the nation. It is chiefly from that viewpoint I write of them -- as an eruption of trash that has lamed the American mind and retarded Americans from becoming a cultured people.
Shakespeare, Leonardo Da Vinci, Benjamin Franklin, and Lincoln never saw a movie, heard a radio, or looked at a TV They had loneliness and knew what to do with it. They were not afraid of being lonely because they knew that was when the creative mood in them would mark.
Nobody in TV makes as much money as Robert Redford, who likes to make movies for several million dollars only on the condition that they contain some sort of social message. I cannot take very seriously a social message delivered by an actor who is paid nine million dollars to deliver it, and who charges you five dollars to see it.
Life is like a movie--since there aren't any commercial breaks, you have to get up and go to the bathroom in the middle of it.
The popularity of disaster movies expresses a collective perception of a world threatened by irresistible and unforeseen forces which nevertheless are thwarted at the last moment. Their thinly veiled symbolic meaning might be translated thus: We are innocent of wrongdoing. We are attacked by unforeseeable forces come to harm us. We are, thus, innocent even of negligence. Though those forces are insuperable, chance will come to our aid and we shall emerge victorious.
I think every American actor wants to be a movie star. But I never wanted to do stupid movies, I wanted to do films. I vowed I would never do a commercial, nor would I do a soap opera -- both of which I did as soon as I left the [Acting] Company and was starving.
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.
Watching old movies is like spending an evening with those people next door. They bore us, and we wouldn't go out of our way to see them; we drop in on them because they're so close. If it took some effort to see old movies, we might try to find out which were the good ones, and if people saw only the good ones maybe they would still respect old movies. As it is, people sit and watch movies that audiences walked out on thirty years ago. Like Lot's wife, we are tempted to take another look, attracted not by evil but by something that seems much more shameful -- our own innocence.

We ain't gonna go bouncing off the walls for the next ten minutes, because when its over we'll still have the same problems. We've gotta find a way to work this out and stay alive.
Apollo 13 Movie
I Hate The Way You Talk to me and the way you cut your hair. I hate the way you drive your car. I hate it when you stare. I hate your big dumb combat boots and the way you read my mind I hate you so much is makes me sick it even makes me ryme. I hate it when your always right I hate it when you lie I hate it when you make me laugh- Even worse when you make me cry. I hate it when your not around and the fact you didn't call. But mostly I hate the way I don't hate you at all- Not even close even a little not any at all.

It's very liberating to be naked in front of a hundred people, but there's nothing sexual about lovemaking on a movie set.
