10 Best ‘The Dark Knight’ Quotes

‘The Dark Knight’ is unarguably the best superhero movie ever made. Its story along with dark background and impressive display of performance by Heath ‘The Joker’ Ledger makes it truly a class apart. I have compiled the 10 best quotes from this movie [in my opinion and I have been a little partial to the joker :D].

10.  Alfred Pennyworth – “Some men aren’t looking for anything logical like money. They can’t be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.”

09. Harvey ‘Two Face’ Dent – “Have you ever had to talk to the person you love most? To tell them it’s going to be alright, when you know that it’s not?”

08. The Joker – “Madness is like gravity, all it needs is a little… push.”

07. The Joker – “You see, I’m a guy of simple taste. I enjoy dynamite, and gunpowder, and gasoline! And do you know what they all have in common? They’re cheap.”

06. Bruce ‘Batman’ Wayne – “Sometimes, the truth isn’t good enough. Sometimes people deserve more. Sometimes people deserve to have their faith rewarded.”

05. The Joker – “Let’s put a smile on that face!”

04. The Joker – “I believe… whatever doesn’t kill you simply makes you…stranger.”

03. The Joker – “Why so serious?”

02. Harvey ‘Two Face’ Dent – “You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.”

01. The Joker – “If you’re good at something, never do it for free.”

Hope you enjoyed it !

The Game Of The Name

This weeks biggest releases, Aamir Khan’s directorial debut ‘Taare Zameen Par’ and Anees Bazmee’s megastarrer comedy ‘Welcome’. No, this entry is not about their reviews or the making of their act.  I heard a rumuor [rumour : because I cannot confirm it] about the conflict between Anil Kapoor and Akshay Kumar about whose name should be  before others in the film credits. Anil Kapoor argued since senoirity should be a preferred way of listing the credits, Akshay being the lead actor in the movie pulled the case on his side. It ended up Anil Kapoor winning this unusual battle for fame.

On the contrary, in the credits of ‘Taare Zameen Par’; Darsheel Safary’s name appears before Aamir Khan’s. Aamir Khan, yet recieves tremendous appreciations even if Darsheel Safary steals the show. Aamir didn’t overshadow the real star of the movie Darsheel, who carries the entire movie on his shoulders. And most importantly, Aamir didn’t let his ego ruin the wonderful masterpiece which he has put in place.

How many people really restrain their ego from taking over them? Does the order of the names appearring in the list matter so much that you are willing to destroy a relationship? The best actor award is not won by the order of the names in the credits but genuine acting skills and ability to perform on screen. Similarly in various situation of the life, the act matters rather than the name. A profund thought, that too from a bollywood conflict. 🙂  

Thumb’s Up To Surf’s Up. . .

I saw a great movie yesterday, so had to write down something on it. This animated movie is about a small guy penguin [Cody] who wants to be a champion sea surfer as Big Z and win the Big Z Memorial surfing contest. He is picked up for the contest even though he does not surf well because of his persistence. And Cody makes new friends during his stay in the Pengu Island for the tournament, A chicken who surfs [Joe] and falls in love with a female lifegaurd [Lani]. Cody is humiliated by the then 9 times champion [Evans] of Big Z Memorial contest. He runs into the jungle and eventually meets the ultimate surfing champion Big Z who is believed to be killed during surfing in a contest, which Evans wins for the first time and Big Z is now gone into hiding. Cody convinces Big Z to train him but ultimately has a fued with Big Z since Cody is always thinking about the contest. He leaves Big Z and goes for the tournament. Cody is leading through all the rounds and now in the final round Cody, Joe and Evans are left with. Cody and Joe are leading when Evans tries to topple Joe, but Cody realising that his friend’s life is in danger, interferes and falls down in the waves along with Evans. Cody is rescued by Big Z, who comes out of his hiding. The contest is won by Joe.

The movie is a little roughly made and could have been better but still it is a must watch in my list.

Things you can learn from Surf’s up,
9. Fame, glory and money is temporary.
8. Humiliation is what you should accept, when you want to achieve your goal.
7. You can spend very less time together and be the best of the friends.
6. It takes a lot of guts to accept defeat.
5. Surfing is dangerous.
4. Once a friend, you will always be a friend even if you have the biggest of fights.
3. Winning really does not matter if it has to come by hurting somebody.
2. Friends are more important than any trophy in this world.
And the ‘numero uno’ is
1. Always have a dream and put in it everything you have got and it realises.
