3-Day Quotes Challenge: Day 3 Animated movies take us through evolutionary scientific thoughts.

Two months ago (two months! Has it been that long?), Jessica at Elldimensional challenged me to do the 3-Day Quotes. She’s done it wonderfully. I suggest to hop over and have a look.

Strangely, of all the topics I’ve chosen for this challenge, this one was the easiest! It’s occurred to me that animated movies often carry more profound messages than their live-action counterparts! Maybe this is one of the reasons kids are so smart these days 😀

So here they are, three quotes from animated movies showing the evolution of scientific thoughts:

Going back to the stone age...
Going back to the stone age…

 

Leaping through to the middle ages...
Leaping through to the middle ages…

 

...and landing squarely in the 1950s.
…and landing squarely in the 1950s.

As part of this challenge, I have to nominate three other bloggers to take up the challenge. They aren’t obliged to take the challenge, but let’s hope they do:-)

3-Day Quotes Challenge: Day 2 Movies lines about love

Two months ago (two months! Has it been that long?), Jessica at Elldimensional challenged me to do the 3-Day Quotes. She’s done it wonderfully. I suggest to hop over and have a look.

This was harder for me than I thought. I just could not find that many lines about love to share…perhaps because the actions and expressions in movies convey love more than song lyrics, poetry and prose do.  Movie lines without the action and background often seem…flat to me. So here’s what I’ve got for you:

hes just not that into you
Practical Magic love

Sabrina movie quote love

I’m also curious about what’s your favorite movie love quote/line 😀

3-Day Quotes Challenge: Movies and Song Lyrics

Two months ago (two months! Has it been that long?), Jessica at Elldimensional challenged me to do the 3-Day Quotes. She’s done it wonderfully. I suggest to hop over and have a look. I’ve finally gotten around to doing (or at least starting) the posts, so here we go:

I don’t know why I complicate things so…I really don’t.

 I decided to try quoting lyrics of songs which appeared in movies or vice versa.

It’s been a nostalgic week for me, so by some curious coincidence all quotes ended up coming from, ’90s music in British movies. Even more strangely (or not) two of the movies were shot in Edinburgh and Glasgow in the mid-nineties…and both movies feature Ewan McGregor… Let’s not overthink this then.

Shallow Grave Friends

Shallow Grave (1994)

I have to admit this movie is not for the squeamish. I remember my face being squeezed into a perpetual eeww! But I couldn’t stop watching Christopher Eccleston in fascinated horror, like a train smash, only worse. And I have it on good authority that an Edinburgh audience cheered when Ewan McG’s character got his just desserts in the middle of the movie. The song is mostly electronica, except for the beginning where we hear Eccleston’s opening lines, those above.

Quote from Trainspotting, Ewan McGregor
Trainspotting

Another movie not the squeamish or for those feeling sensitive, but hysterically funny when not utterly depressing. Also shot mostly in Edinburgh and Glasgow, and starring Ewan McG–who features in this song speaking the words of Ren, his character. I don’t know if any Edinburgh audiences cheered for this movie, but I do know that back in South Africa, my brother and I seemed to be the only ones who found it’s dark humour funny.

 

Loaded
Worlds End

Another movie I watched with my brother, the only person in my family who got the joke at the end with me. And yes, this is also not for viewing in a squeamish mood. World’s End is the only movie I’ve watched which seems to have been written on a bar-crawl, and which features a bar-crawl. A good ending to Pegg’s and Frost’s take on British horror/action/sci-fi meets cosy mystery settings.
