Movie Dating Quotes

Los Angeles has the greatest concentration of surviving movie palaces in the United States, yet most residents have never been inside one of them.

Leonard Maltin

Machines with interchangeable parts can now be constructed with great economy of effort. In spite of much complexity, they perform reliably. Witness the humble typewriter, or the movie camera, or the automobile.

Vannevar Bush

My greatest debt will always be to the movie-going public of yesterday and today, without whose love and devotion I would have had no story to tell.

Gloria Swanson

Story in a game is like a story in a porn movie. It's expected to be there, but it's not that important.

John D. Carmack II

Although I am not averse to wasting a few hours playing computer games, I have never tried my hand at Doom. Judging by sales figures and testimonials, playing the game has to be an infinitely preferable experience to watching this pathetic excuse for a movie.

James Berardinelli

Perhaps a better title for The Da Vinci Code might be Much Ado About Nothing. When you boil away the hype and hysteria, all that remains is a pedestrian murder mystery that isn't sufficiently challenging or scandalous to raise anyone's hackles. It's preposterous, overlong, and saddled with a sloppy denouement that defines the term "anti-climax." The film's two big "surprises" are telegraphed early, and the ease with which they can be guessed (using the "conservation of characters" process) leeches the movie of a large measure of its suspense. Individual scenes are entertaining in their own right, but the production as a whole is a lumbering mess.

James Berardinelli

Hollywood never knew there was a Vietnam War until they made the movie.

Jerry Stiller

An actor really is a kind of intermediary between an audience and the piece, whether it's a play or movie.

Christopher Walken

I actually think I have an audience member's sensibility about going to the movies.

Samuel L. Jackson

I look at myself as an audience member. I still love movies, and I still go and sit in the back of the big dark room with everybody else, and I want the same thrill.

Samuel L. Jackson

I've spent several years in Hollywood, and I still think the movie heroes are in the audience.

Wilson Mizner

If it's a good movie, the sound could go off and the audience would still have a perfectly clear idea of what was going on

Alfred Hitchcock

Movies are not about the weekend that they are released, and in the grand scheme of things, that is probably the most unimportant time of a film's life.

Quentin Tarantino†

Too rarely do most of us focus on our real inner beauty and our inner strengths. Do you recall watching "boy meets girl" movies? As the boy and the girl struggled through thick and thin, you hoped and prayed the whole time that everything would work out. He went to war, she left home, he came back, she was gone, he found her, her brother told him to get lost, she told him to get lost, and all the time you hoped that they would live happily ever after.

Andrew Matthews

It seems distinctly an understatement to hold that each all-day visitor to the forest derives as much pleasure form it as he would derive from a 2-hour motion-picture show. I have estimated that in the United States approximately 250 million man-days a year are devoted to forest recreation. If the admission price to a movie averages 25 cents, this gives the annual American forest recreation a value of $62,500,000. This is the minimum that people probably would pay for the privilege of using the forest if the price were asked. The incidental fact that people have to pay for admission to the movies and do not usually have to pay for admission to the forests does not mean that the outdoor recreation is any less valuable.
