My movie is born first in my head, dies on paper; is resuscitated by the living persons and real objects I use, which are killed on film but, placed in a certain order and projected on to a screen, come to life again like flowers in water.

Robert Bresson

My advice to young film-makers is this: Don't follow trends, Start them!

Frank Capra

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

Films have degenerated to their original operation as carnival amusement - they offer not drama but thrills.

David Mamet

The moral of filmmaking in Britain is that you will be screwed by the weather.

Hugh Grant

In movies, I hope women aren't always portrayed as sex symbols. People like Drew Barrymore are paving the way for girls my age. Hopefully I can pave the way for young actresses, too.

Kirsten Dunst

Sometimes I think all my pictures are just pictures of me. My concern is... the human predicament; only what I consider the human predicament may simply be my own.

Richard Avedon

Woody makes a movie as if he were lighting 10,000 safety matches to illuminate a city. Each one is a little epiphany: topical, ethnic, or political.

Gene Wilder

I don't know if All About My Mother is my best film yet. I haven't had time to analyse it. If you look at the argument it looks like an outrageous story, but the challenge was to show the story as something real and emotional. The truth is that everybody leaves the cinema feeling a better person.

Pedro Almodovar

For the entire state of Georgia, having the première of Gone With the Wind on home ground was like winning the Battle of Atlanta 75 years late.

Anne Edwards

Luke: What's in there?Yoda: Only what you take with you.


No, I am your father.

David Prowse

A film is - or should be - more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what's behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later.

Stanley Kubrick

Movies are fun, but they're not a cure for cancer.

Warren Beatty

Major Strasser has been shot! Round up the usual suspects!

Claude Rains

Film stars to me were always six feet four, had perfect teeth and could do handstands on Malibu Beach - and didn't need glasses.

Michael Caine

Pornography is pornography, what is there to see? Movies are attempting to destroy something that's supposed to be the most beautiful thing a man and a woman can have by making it cheap and common. It's what you don't see that's attractive.

Nancy Reagan

Perhaps it sounds ridiculous, but the best thing that young filmmakers should do is to get hold of a camera and some film and make a movie of any kind at all.

Stanley Kubrick

Some films could only have been cast in one way: Screen tests were given and the losers got the parts.

Gene Shalit

Several hard-core Star Wars fans who had tickets for the first showing actually said that when the movie finally began, they started crying. Mainly because they realized that it's 22 years later, and they still haven't lost their virginity.

Conan O'brien

Apparently the new high-tech Star Wars toys will be in stores any day now. The toys can talk and are interactive, so they can be easily distinguished from Star Wars fans.

Conan O'brien

Size matters not, ... Look at me. Judge me by size, do you?


A Picture of many colors proclaims images of many Thoughts.

Donna A. Favors

The length of a film should be directly related to the endurance of the human bladder.

Alfred Hitchcock

Shoot a few scenes out of focus. I want to win the foreign film award.

Billy Wilder

Movies bore me, especially my own.

Robert Mitchum

You've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya punk?

Clint Eastwood

A film is never really good unless the camera is an eye in the head of a poet.

Orson Welles

I was born at a bad time for Spain, but a really good one for cinema.

Pedro Almodovar

The movies we love and admire are to some extent a function of who we are when we see them.

Mary Schmich

Right where i left you... Not where i left you?

Orlando Bloom

We are the movies and the movies are us.

David Ansen

Movies are so rarely great art that if we cannot appreciate great trash we have very little reason to be interested in them.

Pauline Kael

What critics call dirty in our pictures, they call lusty in foreign films.

Billy Wilder

I don't think you should feel about a film. You should feel about a woman, not a movie. You can't kiss a movie.

Jean luc Godard

The most difficult thing in the world is to start a career known only for your looks, and then to try to become a serious actress. No one will take you seriously once you are known as the pretty woman.

Penelope Cruz

When I was very young, I was already a fabulador. I loved to give my own version of stories that everybody already knew. When I got out of a movie with my sisters, I retold them the whole story. In general they liked my version better than the one they had seen.

Pedro Almodovar

A good film script should be able to do completely without dialogue.

David Mamet

May the wind always be on your back and the sun upon your face and may the winds of destiny carry you aloft to dance with the stars.

Johnny Depp

Scriptwriting [for film] is the toughest part of the whole racket . . . the least understood and the least noticed.

Frank Capra

My movies were the kind they show in prisons and airplanes, because nobody can leave.

Burt Reynolds

Our intent is to create a critical mass of movies and displays at retail that will showcase the escalating availability and abundance of both BD software and hardware in the marketplace.

Benjamin Feingold

I don't buy 'Debbie Does Dallas,' I buy the ones where the R-rating is for [action]... I get the movies that were [big at the] box office.

Rosann Sanders

We're going to continue to see games turned into movies.

Cliff Bleszinski

I probably wouldn't mind just doing the Harry Potter movies and then making a career of conventions.

Matthew Lewis

'The Transporter' 1 and 2 are the movies I do for Luc — they're not the kind I would go see or make naturally, ... You ask Luc, 'How do you want me to do it?' .

Louis Leterrier

Clearly we think we [also] have a lot of creative talent and we have technology and a lot of things that are available to ... make our movies ... just as successful.

Dick Cook

The words "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" which I saw on an Italian movie poster, are perhaps the briefest statement imaginable of the basic appeal of movies.

Pauline Kael

People would ask me, 'Is he as funny at home as he is in the movies?' ... I would have to answer, 'Well, he can be funny. But he is also very serious. He has insomnia and if we him up early, he would bawl the hell out of me.'

Arthur Marx

Summer is when audiences expect us to deliver excitement. Some movies just didn't fulfill that promise.

Jeff Blake

I left Law and Order because I really honestly did want to do movies and did want to be a movie star since I was a little girl.

Angie Harmon

We're looking to make crossover movies. There are lots of Christian movies being made in Nigeria, but they are made by Christian actors, Christian producers, Christian everything. But because of that a lot of people are not going to go near them.

Ope Banwo

We want to make sure the festival gives top visibility to its movies and to the people who made them.

Marco Muller

As you grow up and get educated in the business, you go from, 'I want to do movies' to 'I want to work. In whatever,'.

Felicity Huffman

Nursery rhymes are cheap. They don't cost like CDs and movies. You can get them second-hand, you can have them memorized.

Laurie Lapan

It's a great feeling to think that I can be a friend to so many people through my movies.

River Phoenix

It feels like the next stage of the X-Men movies. It doesn't feel like a sequel. It feels like a new episode.

James Marsden

I took my crews to the movies this afternoon to escape the blistering heat for a couple of hours. Everyone is looking forward to going home and getting quality rest.

Timothy Egan

If you try to categorize this as a gay movie, then it's the 'Star Wars' of gay movies.

Ray Price

His humour is very much like his movies, one-liners, fast, off-the-cuff stuff. He's always been like that.

Todd Nelson

We are going to re-create a 1940s theater underground where the cart pulls up to the movie marquee with lights and facade. You will go inside and watch clips of some of those movies.

Jane Mccone

When Ginger Rogers danced with Astaire, it was the only time in the movies when you looked at the man, not the woman.

Gene Kelly

They spend an awful lot of money on I-don't-know-what in Hollywood movies; I certainly didn't get any of it. But they sure do love spending money.

Adam Garcia

In the past I've made movies that were pretty universally liked. You can't really hate them. You can discard them, but you can't really hate them.

Ang Lee

I think those books do have the same feeling as the big movies. You know you're going to get lost in this world. A shorter book can't quite do that.

Jonathan Burnham

It's actually the people with the best equipment that also go to the most movies.

Howard Lichtman

I always thought that Elvis could have been a great actor, and that he was put in a lot of unimportant movies when he could have done a lot of great ones.

Patti Page

I did try to get a few of those teen high-school movies, but they just didn't like me. I guess I wasn't a certain type.

Leelee Sobieski

The Academy Awards is a TV show that gives awards to movies. Now there are magazines that talk about the TV show that gives awards to movies.

Rob Daviau

I'll be a flop in movies. Besides, I don't like 'em, and I never did believe there was a place called Hollywood. Somebody made it up!

Patsy Kelly

Their right to go to the movies on call ends at the tip of my ears. Cell phones have created and nurtured a greater atmosphere of entitlement.

Joseph Tecce

It could be the gay Oscars this year because gay-themed movies could win almost all the major awards.

Tom O'neill

We're watching movies in one class. People just getting ready for the game.

Chris Osborne

What we have lined up is a very aggressive calendar of blockbuster movies. This will be the channel's driver activity for the January to March quarter period of 2006.

Albert Almeida

I love awards, especially if I get them. It's up to the courage of the filmmakers to make art in cinema, not just business. John was rejected by studios, he borrowed money and did movies with his own money. You're either courageous or not. You have to find a way.

Ben Gazzara

We live in an age when it is cheaper to buy the rights to movies than to make them.

Hayao Miyazaki

I'm not a big fan of horror movies, especially the recent teen-slasher sort of ones.

Martin Henderson

SAW was one of those movies where people begged for a sequel because there were so many questions that were left at the end of the film.

Oren Koules

You know, movies are often made by tying up the hamburger rights and rubber-doll rights before the script is even approved.

Ali Macgraw

It's the movies, stupid. That's what we've been saying all along.

John Fithian

This year it's very important because there are so many small movies chasing the last couple of (nomination) slots.

David Poland

I make movies for grownups. When Hollywood starts making them again, I'll start acting in them again.

Lee Remick

There used to be two or three spots in the calendar when a CGI movie would come out. And now it's just about every month. How many movies can a family see?

Ramin Zahed

We'll have nicer, brighter displays. We currently don't have a music department. At the new store, we'll have a department dedicated to music and movies.

Christian Gonzalez

We did six records, then six movies. Now we need to do six of something else, so we get 666 - and then our master Satan can return!

Cheech Marin

I really don't like to do back-to-back movies. I concentrate on things at home. My family and school life are important to me. I try to do one movie a year.

Anna Chlumsky

Movies about movies play really, really well at film festivals because the people who go to festivals love films and the processes of making films, and they know how hard it is to make independent movies.

Chris Lamont

The funny thing about commercials to me is that many of them now don't even mention the product until the very end. You don't really know what the commercial is all about [until then]. They're kind of like little movies, like shorts, and that's why I think they're so entertaining.

Kevin Nealon

This is the age of insincerity. The movies had the misfortune to come along in the twentieth century, and because they appeal to the masses there can be no sincerity in them.

Lionel Barrymore

Why did I spend all these years playing boring Europeans? I was made for action movies.

Asia Argento

Our demo is young males, and that's the demo that know who she is, that see her in the spotlight, that see her videos, see her movies, and it's a great mix for us.

Mike Foreman

Christmas and Thanksgiving is really the place where movies can make a killing at the box office.

Mark Harris

Sci-fi and horror movies and television programs have always appealed to girls and young women, ... It's the one thing both genders can agree upon.

Richard Lachmann

People used to drive through here from Hollywood to see their movies.

Alan Ladd

She and her sisters made movies when they were little.

Mary Byrne

We're looking at books, movies and TV shows that have strong characters from the past that we can take and build upon.

Yves Guillemot

I want to be like Tom Cruise from The Outsiders and go on and do amazing movies for a long time.

Ashton Kutcher

They say God has existed from the beginning of time and will exist beyond the end of time. Can you imagine trying to sit through his home movies?

Scott Roeben

There's no denying it's an expensive program. People keep the product out a little longer, so you've got to bring in more movies and games, and that's an additional cost.

Karen Raskopf

I prefer movies. I think it's nice to go to difference characters and kinda jump around. Maybe one day I'll do a TV show again.

Ashlee Simpson

I only make movies to finance my fishing'.

Lee Marvin

You can map your life through your favorite movies, and no two people's maps will be the same.

Mary Schmich

There are only so many movies you can make in a given year, and this didn't fit into our long-term approach. We were uncomfortable with this kind of humor.

Dennis Rice

If dreams are like movies, then memories are films about ghosts.

Adam Duritz

The bottom line is people say they hate commercials, but in reality they go to the movies they want to see no matter what.

Adrienne Becker

The movies that influenced me were movies that told their stories through pictures more than words.

Sam Mendes

I aspire to eventually be making my living by making movies.

Richard King

It should create lots more walk-around traffic. You can walk to the movies, you can walk to Kaiser Grill or the Chop House or my place, you can walk to the Spa casino. There's just a lot more out here than there used to be.

Sam Harris

We believe this movie is going to introduce Jim to a lot of filmgoers who haven't had the opportunity to see his movies before.

David Linde

It is true he still has a lot of money; he's built up a net worth and still has back-ends from movies, but you can't compare that to what he could be still making. Sometimes it just amazes me how uninterested he is about it.

Paul Wachter

Movies are usually difficult, often insane, constantly challenging and always strangely amusing to make.

Yahoo Serious

When I wanted to do this job it was for making movies not for the glitter. Of course with the fame I got more offers from different countries so it is great to have huge luxuries for an actor to work and to have the choice. But after, in life, I can't enjoy anonymity. But I can hide myself.

Audrey Tautou

Stop motion is a visual look that has inspired so many movies and moviemakers, from the original 1933 'King Kong' to, now, Tim Burton.

Peter Curtis

I just love, I love, I love movies.

Laura Dern

It's very exciting to have dogs in the movies here.

Lorraine Barron

Sometimes there could be movies that are neck and neck, and that could tilt the balance.

David Joyce

I like him a lot and I like his movies a lot, too. In every sense of the word, I'm a big Bob Altman fan.

Maya Rudolph

Most of the titles are quotes from books or movies.

Spencer Smith

This remaking goes on all the time. You have a hard time finding good material, so you remake old movies that have done well.

Matthew Bernstein

Yeah, I do like scary movies, especially the ones that don't take themselves too seriously.

Anna Faris

It was like two movies -- a horror movie on offense, but defensively, hey, one of the better ones. So you got a two-for-one.

Jimmy Tubbs

I think less is more when it comes to kissing in the movies.

Julia Roberts

I finally feel, after six or eight, I don't know how many movies I've directed, I know what I'm doing. I really know how to direct a movie now, and I really feel confident. It's such an empowering feeling, ... Someone once said to me that every director wants their first movie to be their fifth because you learn so much along the way and I finally feel I've put it together.

Charles Shyer

There's no such thing as an original idea. We're all inspired by books, magazines and movies.

Kristan Cunningham

I was glad that the protesters prevailed and we didn't shoot there. The sad fact is that that movies, at their core, are environmentally unfriendly.

Rob Cohen

When they tell me one of my old movies is on TV, I don't look at it.

Alexis Smith

I saw some of the Nintendo Revolution controller demo movies, and I just put two and two together.

Joseph Hatcher

It used to be that his movies made too much money, ... But now he's made a movie that made almost no money at all. So this was a chance to reward him for his artistic endeavors. And still they said, 'No, it's not happening.'

Peter Travers

There are a lot of stereotypes from non-Greeks. I think they see movies like 'Animal House' and think it's all parties and poor academics.

Justin Mason

Becoming a producer enables you to empower yourself, to make the film that you want to make. I have desires to make movies - I have movies I'm developing, and things that I'm interested in.

Andy Garcia

People want to be inspired by the movies, they want to have a cathartic experience and they want to laugh and they crave that and when its not there they notice that absence and that's what they talk about instead of going to the movies.

Brandon Gray

The amazing thing about Tolerance was that it's standing against movies that weren't made in a day.

Mark Hedengren

Perhaps the briefest statement imaginable of the basic appeal of movies. This appeal is what attracts us, and ultimately what makes us despair when we begin to understand how seldom movies are more than this.

Lethal Weapon

It's been very important for me to stick to the tone. I feel so reverential to the first two [movies], I'm not reinventing anything that's already been done.

Brett Ratner

I don't control the movies that are offered to me, but I make choices based on certain parameters.

Andy Garcia

We started back in the fall of 1985, and back then it was a couple of guys who really loved movies.

Rebecca Campbell

It's a story that belongs in the movies or a novel.

John Fitzgibbons

We had this conversation, and everybody in the room just disappeared. We were talking about our favorite old movies and all were the same ones. We just clicked in terms of our creative ideas. Edward and I really became good friends.

Jenna Elfman

This is open to everyone and admission is free. It's great for people who enjoy good movies and then like to talk about them.

John Riddle

Students do not have many role models who use language well. They are very much into rap and movies that don't necessarily use standard English.

Marilyn Jackson

Immediately after Halloween, whatever it is, people's mind-set turns to movies.

Chuck Viane

It integrates everything that is important to them: games, friends, sports, e-mail, music, books, movies and, when they have time, homework.

Debbie Travis

It is as old as the movies themselves.

Leonard Maltin

Bob and I know how to run a company and make movies profitably.

Harvey Weinstein

I don't like to watch my own movies - I fall asleep in my own movies.

Robert De Niro

My agent said, 'You aren't good enough for movies.' I said, 'You're fired.'

Sally Field

And if real life was like the movies, I should have lived happily ever after.

Piper Laurie

I had my plan. I had my family. We would travel the world and shoot movies and be fabulous.

Angie Harmon

I manage to hide in my movies.

Liev Schreiber

I'm in the movies that they dump. Last year we came out on the worst date, with Paparazzi . This year, we're like a week away from the worst date. We'll see. What can you do?

Cole Hauser

What movies have you watched the most . . .?

James Rosen

It's kind of like one of the 'Dirty Harry' movies with Clint Eastwood. At the end of the film Clint says, 'A man's gotta know his limitations.'

David Meyer

If I would have known, I wouldn't have allowed him in my car. Imagine, we get pulled over and I get caught with an armed felon in my car. Since I've been in the movies, it would have instantly drawn attention.

Lillo Brancato Jr

My family doesn't like the distance. They can't visit me, and I cannot immediately visit them. They also fear I will marry or become a spoiled American, like in the movies.

John Soka

One-terabyte hard drives will be standard repositories for movies, music and games in the home.

John Monroe

When we play sports movies, inevitably someone from a school contacts us about bringing their players in. We haven't had too many sports movies, but when we do, we're happy to accommodate them.

Mike Getz

It's always hard for me not to dance when I'm on camera; I've had great times doing (TV and movies), but physically I feel very restricted.

Bebe Neuwirth

Most of us do not consciously look at movies.

Roger Ebert

It's the kind of thing you only see in movies.

Jason Aymami

I hate horror movies.

Beverley Mitchell

We believe that it belongs to gay white men. We don't see movies about the poor black girl who got infected by her significant other.

Carolynn Martin

We were very fortunate that all the movies responded very, very well. Audiences like them and went to see them more than once.

Dick Cook

I was so flattered to be asked to be in the movies - the idea of being paid to act was heady stuff.

Piper Laurie

There are a few directors that I really loved who made like five, six great movies, but are still shooting and they're not good anymore and I'm sad.

Luc Besson

I just wish we had better movies. Some of these movies I've seen about six times.

Dave Urick

He wants to be in movies; he wants to be on television in the future. We found that out real quick.

Anthony Fasano

The state can no more impose a special tax on adult entertainment than it could impose a special tax on theaters showing 'gay cowboy' movies.

Steven Brown

I don't think he's an a-, ... But if he's going to persist in making bad movies, he's going to have to grow accustomed to reading bad reviews.

Roger Ebert

TV and movies are boring.

Colin Quinn

When you are depressed, you shouldn't listen to sad music, watch sad movies nor paint sad or negative things.

Ana Chapman

Most Flash movies on the Net are older Flash formats, which is why that's the current focus for the near term.

Rob Savoye

My, my, my ... I've been doing this work for over half my life and I finally got one right, ... Some (movies) you do for money, some you do for love. This is a love child.

James Coburn

People said, 'Oh, you'll never make it,' but guess what happened? We filled the house. People came because they knew we played good movies.

Art Proctor

A lot of young filmmakers bring their movies to my dad because he always gives lots of good editing ideas and notes. He'd be a good film professor.

Sofia Coppola

It's not appropriate for kids and it is clearly labeled that way, ... There are R-rated movies and DVDs.

Hal Halpin

Even though I make those movies, I find myself wishing that more of those magic moments could happen in real life.

Jane Seymour

I mean, look, I love movies, not just the ones I make... In fact, I don't like the movies I make very much.

Alexander Payne

I don't like movies that are trying to preach and trying to tell you how to feel.

Don Cheadle

I think that's been about as successful as me acting in movies.

Bobby Baldwin

Oh absolutely. I had the pleasure to get to know a lot of really talented young actors before they even really hit it big. And yet what we all had and shared in common was a love for movies.

Chad Lowe

I'm not in a contest. I make movies. I'm not a racehorse.

George Lucas

I seem to have a knack for picking movies that go on to be cult favorites.

Kurt Russell

That is why it's so fun to make movies... you get to do lots of things you would never do in your normal life.

Meg Tilly

I'm not expecting awards. I want the Philippine audience to troop to the theaters. I did not make the movies for that [awards]. I just want the movies to make money so that the industry can get back on its feet.

Joel Lamangan

The first South Korean company, High-Tech Movies, was approved for the program and the Indian government is interested in sending us a company.

Bill Fontana

My influences are people like Burgess Meredith, Jackie Gleason, Art Carney. Really good character actors than stars because they do more interesting things. Some of your favorite movies are ones you visit again are due to the great character actors in them.

Stephen Root

We see it as the future of content consumption. We think the digital home is the way of entertainment in the future and broadband will be the pipe that brings it into your home, whether it is games, movies or TV.

Craig Middleton

I'm not terribly happy with the quality of current films. It's too much business, not enough quality. We're seeing the same movies over and over again. It's one cliché after another.

Stuart Allard

He'd get so upset when he'd see Keaton do those movies, ... He'd ask, 'Why is he doing that?' .

Suzanne Lloyd

You know what your problem is, it's that you haven't seen enough movies - all of life's riddles are answered in the movies.

Steve Martin

From early on, I have been making movies with my friends.

Brandon Miller

I want a love like they have in the movies.

Amy Davis

I've been interested (in filmmaking) since I was a little kid. I enjoy putting my own stuff I'd like to see in movies up there, creating my own world.

Kevin Brooks

The issue becomes, how do you reach the numbers of people who saw the movies the creative community is not honoring?

Gilbert Cates

Nowadays I think we actually serve more food than the airlines do. There are no movies aboard.

Scott Rolstad

I rent movies once or twice a month. It's more convenient for me.

Stuart Allard

People don't say `I think I'll take a couple of hundred bucks and go gamble,' ... They say, `Let's go out to dinner,' or, `Let's go to the movies,' or both, and then they also visit the casino.

David Ross

The product definitely looks a lot stronger then Cannes. There are many more English-language movies with casts, ... Super Size Me.

Howard Cohen

I wouldn't not want to be a director and write as I wouldn't not to want to be a writer and direct movies.

Walter Hill

I've been in horror movies, I've been in silly comedies. Actually did a musical once.

David Warner
