    "I've been neglecting screenings... I'd rather go snowboarding than see movies"

    Ed Burns, whose career was born at the Sundance Film Festival, at Sundance 2003.

    ===

    This quote bothers me because I was shocked to hear someone like Burns, who you'd think would be the first to want to support his fellow filmmakers, would think, let alone say, such a thing.



    (Feel free to add others. Make this a catch-all quote thread)

    I always liked "My name is John Ford and I direct westerns." So refreshing to hear of a guy who didn't feel ashamed to be a "genre director" [​IMG]

    The Sun is acting like Farrell is the only actor with an ego.

    Close, but no cigar. Sean Penn. But hell, I'd give Bean a part too. He was great as Boromir!



    Steve, thanks for that article from The Sun. I could only think of one thing while reading it (and reading much of what Farrell himself says). I believe the English term is "taking the piss" eh? If I'm using the term correctly, Colin loves to take the piss out of people, especially journalists and big heads. That whole thing with Britney. Even before I read these articles, I could picture them meeting and talking and getting along, then saying how great it would be to freak out the world's media by showing up at The Recruit's premiere together, all cozy and shit. People were saying "Oh oh oh!! Colin and Britney are an item now...wow! How serious is it? When's the date? Oh oh oh!!" and I can just picture the two of them snorting at the stupidity of it all. Funny!

    And hey, he's a young healthy man. Why is he an "Eejit" for liking casual sex? He does advocate the use of condoms (in the Playboy interview), so what's the big deal? Sheesh, is The Sun known for its good taste and decorum? (Is that the Page 6 paper? or Page 3, or whatever. Something boobie-related.)

    ThomasC, is that a picture of Rockapella in your sig or is the tagline unrelated to the pic? I actually downloaded their wintertime Folgers Coffe commercial off Napster when it was still up. "Where in the world is Carmen San Diego?"

    "I watch DVDs religiously, I probably own about 200 DVDs. I'm the kind of guy who likes to go back to some of the old DVDs and look at the commentaries. I like a lot of the DVDs of the 1930's like 'It Happened One Night'. I think 'Alfie' is the DVD that I've watched more than any other."
