It’s Called a Compliment

The 1st compliment
Melvin: Ok. Now I get a real great compliment for you and it’s true.
Carol: I’m so afraid that you’re about to say something awful.
Melvin: Don’t be pessimestic. It’s not your style. Ok. Here I go. Clearly it was a stake. I’ve got this what… ailment. My doctor, a shrink that I used to go to all the time. He said in 50 or 60 percent of the cases a pill really helps. I hate pills, very dangerous thing, pills, ‘HATE’. I’m using the word ‘HATE’ here about pills ‘HATE’. My compliment is that night when you came over and told me that you never ever…
Carol: Umm
Melvin: Umm. All right, well, you’re there, you don’t wanna hear what you said. Well my compliment to you is the next morning I started taking the pills
Carol: I don’t quite get that’s a compliment for me.
Melvin: You make me wanna be a better man.
The 2nd compliment
Melvin: Hey I’ve got a great compliment for you.
Carol: You know what I don’t wanna
Melvin: Just just just let me, let me talk.
Just… I might be the only person on the face of the earth that know you’re the greatest woman on earth. And I might be the only one who appriciates how amazing you are in every single thing that you do and how you are with Spencer Spence. And every single thought that you have and how you say what you mean and how you almost always mean something that’s all about means straight and good. And I… I think most people miss that about you and I watched and wondering how they can watch you bring their food and clear their tables and never get that they just met the greatest woman alive. And the fact that I get it makes me feel good about me. Ahhha. Is that something that’s err bad for you to be around, for you?
Carol: No.
Melvin: I’m gonna grab you, I didn’t mean that to be a question, I’m gonna grab you.
From As Good As It Gets

Something’s Gotta Watch

Yesterday with the most romantic comedy movie I’ve ever watched, Something’s Gotta Give. The movie was picked because of its leading actor, Jack Nicholson. I couldn’t guess what the story is about from its name (I didn’t read a synopsis.) The story is very moving, sweet, and hillarious. From my background, I can’t guess what’s gonna happen in the movie, like who’ll be with whom. It could be very fictional that there’s gonna be two couples at the end or it could be a triangle love in a family or a competitive love between a doctor and a patient to the same woman. But, that’s not important in the story. It’s about something you’ve gotta give; something you have to find out in the movie; something you have to decide which thing you’ve gotta give.

Paris, Je T’aime

Paris, a perfect place to find love, to fall in love, and to reunite with ones you love.
After having watched a trailer of this movie, I knew I missed the place and was looking forward to see my loves there this summer. We will have a wonderful time in Paris. It seems I never get enough of it.

Behind the scene

Casino Royale

"The name is Bond, James Bond" is an immortal phrase that you would here in every episode of James Bond films. I just watched the latest one, Casino Royale, which has Daniel Craig playing in a role of MI6 secret agent. In this episode, Bond was recruited into a team of MI6 spies and on a mission to Madagascar. He decided to investigate independently of the MI6 agency. Bond characters in this movie is different from any previous ones. Daniel Craig, with intense blue eyes, blond hair, and bulked-up frame, has developed a new Bond paragon. After having watched it, I think he did pretty well in the film. I came across one new James Bond film review website on which I really like a quote "Craig is not your father’s James Bond, but he is almost certainly your daughter’s." In the film, there also are a lot of action and risky scenes that ran into Bond’s life as well as affection.

There is a consequence from the film, I can play poker now. I wanted to play it long time ago, since I read a Japanese cartoon and watched Maverick, starred by Mel Gibson, and God of Gamblers, starred by Chow Yun Fat.

Scent of a Woman – Tango Scene

I found it in the end. A tango scene from the film, Scent of A Woman, the most magnificent, heart-warming, and unbelievable, performed by Al Pacino as Lieutenant Colonel Frank Slade, a blind, retired Army officer, and Gabrielle Anwar as Donna. It is one of my most favorite movies of all time. And, my favorite quote from this movie, "if you’re tangled up, just tango on."
