This blog may seem like a bunch of complaints. Maybe it is. But sometimes complaining is a good thing to do. One of my favorite movie lines of all time is from Alien. When they first hear the beacon and go down onto the planet to see what's up, John Hurt's character tells Veronica Cartwright's character to quit griping. She replies "I like griping." I'm with her.
Another favorite line: from David Mamet's Oleanna (play or movie, take your pick.) Carol, the complaining student, listens to the professor's phone conversation with his wife. When he hangs up she tells him "Don't call your wife Baby!" I'm with her, too.
Best movie song and dance, ever: "Welcome to the Dollhouse" from Welcome to the Dollhouse.
