3 Movies With Brilliant Quotes

Quote of the day:

And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.
-Roald Dahl

I had hoped to watch some old movies this week. By old I mean movies released before 2015 that I never got the chance to see. So far I  have gone through a few whose trailers I will share below. I will also share my favourite quotes in each movie. Enjoy!

1. The Intouchables (French movie, released in 2012)

After he becomes a quadriplegic from a paragliding accident, an aristocrat hires a young man from the projects to be his caretaker.
Favourite quote: Hope well and live well.

2. Hummingbird (2013)

A damaged ex-special forces soldier who is homeless and on the run from a military court martial, navigates London's criminal underworld after seizing an opportunity to assume another man's identity. 
Favourite quote: You've got a knife? I've got a spoon.

3. Jobs (2013)

The story of Steve Jobs' ascension from college drop-out into one of the most revered creative entrepreneurs of the 20th century.
Favourite quote: How can somebody know what they want... if they've never even seen it?

What movies have you watched this week?


Current Listen: Adele -Chasing Pavements


  1. haha to the spoon quote. Watched Get Low, The Way Way Back and TMNT this week so far.

  2. @Patt Hatt: I thought it was great! Hey thanks for heads up on the movies. Cheers.

  3. 'How can somebody know what they want... if they've never even seen it?' ..... I like this quote also ... there must be a 'pull' to determined to have something that others do not see or cannot fathom ... simply because you have 'seen' it ahead!

    I watched Texas rangers, Evelyn an old film 'murder she wrote' . I have not watched any of the three trailers you posted ... untouchable looks very interesting .. will watch it this weekend.

  4. I like that favourite quote. And thank you for spelling "favourite" in correct English! :)

    I watched an all-time classic this week. A classic and yet, a very brief movie, "Bambi Meets Godzilla."

    Thanks for your brief comments on blog.


  5. I love the movie quotes especially the one from Jobs. The last movie I saw was"Focus" with Will Smith. The French movie looks like a good one.

  6. I haven't seen these yet. I wanted to watch movies a few days ago, but I've been revising to get a manuscript to beta readers. Once I'm done, I'm watching a bunch of movies.

  7. **Takes off confused Bracelet.. Hmmmnn.. Sweet.. "You've got a knife.. I've got a spoon.." That one was ghen ghen like that and so Apt.. Truly yeah Oga Boss.. we all have something that someone else doesn't have, but needs.. In my 23 years 5 months and 16 days of confused existence yeah, I am learning that that's the true Idea of Wealth.. Giving others what they need... :)... Wait **Cleans Eyes with Omo, Jik and Spirit.. There is a movie on Steve Jobs?! **Faints.. Chei! Chim'o! I am so stale **Takes off wrist watch.. I am like a Big fan of Jobs (R.I.P) Forget all the wonders and magic that Tim Cooks is doing.. Jobs is (Not was oh.. He lives one) the real Super hero... Amma go search for it and download with the office WiFi.. Hope i dont get caught shaaa.. **Covers face.. Wish me luck..

    Cheers Oga Boss.. Happy Democracy Day in Advance chief of Staff... Good news.. We had power in our House today.. First Time all week.. Alas there is hope.. hehehe More like there is Light at the end of the Tunnel or Trouble (as is applicable in Nigeria's case) :) Cheers..

  8. I think I will like to see (download) hummingbird. Jason stattham movies always worth the while. Thanks for sharing with us.

  9. Not a big movie fan but I like the sound of Hummingbird. Also, Jobs was gooood.

  10. The quotes you feature are always on point.. Hummingbird that sounds like what I will love to see.

  11. Hope well live well...a very deep quote..i think i will have to look for the hummingbird cos it's jason statham

  12. Nice post! I dont relly know much about movies!

  13. This comment has been removed by a blog administrator.

  14. What a lovely collection of movies and quotes. I loved this one "How can somebody know what they want... if they've never even seen it?"

    Wishing you a great weekend. Liuba :)

  15. @Nitty Gritty: Yes you have brilliantly summed it all up, I like that. Great to see you here, thank you for sharing as well!

    @ klahanie: Haha, yes good old English. You are welcome, many thanks for your comments and nice of you to visit!

    @Titis Passion: Focus was a nice movie. Indeed the french movie is intense, and you seem to be the one who's got it figured out. Thank you!

    @Medeia Sharif: Hello hopefully you will find time to watch some, and best wishes!

    @Duru Adolphus Jnr.: My man. Yes there is a Steve Jobs movie, and I believe a new one is coming out this year as well. Glad that you are hopeful about the country's affairs, because its all one can do. Thanks for stopping by, cheers!

    @E - Rella: Great idea, have a nice week and thanks!

    @CookieCrumbs Inc.: Yes indeed, many thanks!

    @Gloria Okaimam: You won't be disappointed, best wishes!

    @glowy shoe: Its highly recommended for you to watch. Nice of you to drop by!

    @Lucky Atuanya: Thanks for visiting!

    @Liuba: Hello there, appreciate you stopping by. Thank you!

  16. The movie Jobs, that will be a must watch, i cant wait to watch

  17. I haven't watched any of them yet :-/

  18. @Buiti Christian: Its definitely worth watching...many thanks!

    @Amrit Sinha: Well you can find time to do just that :)

  19. Would like to see hummingbird.

  20. Jobs is such a good movie!

  21. Really great movies!

  22. I am not a big movie fan .. just saw the INTOUCHABLES
    from the films above. Most of my time watching movies on tv I fall asleep--lol!

  23. I haven't seen any of these. But I have seen one movie (I actually found time for a movie!) last week- Elizabeth: The Golden Age. I wanted to see it for a very long time :) xx Maja

  24. Never seen any of these movies but would like to see them all especially the number two because of jason statham.

  25. what a great idea to include trailers, I am going to watch these now. The last movie I watched recently is 'sleepless in Seattle' and loved it. Thanks for sharing.

  26. I saw 'The intouchables' and liked it. I liked the part he was frothing at the mouth and his caregiver had to drive fast to the hospital-to fool the cops (even I was shocked at that stunt he pulled). The love that almost never happened. Quite funny and emotional. It was a good friendship.

    After a long time without movies,this week I finally saw one- 'Pitch Perfect 2'and I laughed hard...

  27. What did you think of Jobs? I liked it! I know a lot of people didn't because of Ashton Kutcher but I thought he did a great job. There's another Steve Jobs coming out later this year and they're saying it's going to be a winner. Michael Fassbender, Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen...sounds like more of an A-list film. Looks like it will go a little more in-depth with his relationship with his daughter Lisa, as well.

  28. I haven't seen any of the movies you mentioned here. I hope when you get to watch them they are good! I didn't watch any movies this week- things have been super busy. I am hoping for some down time soon. :)

  29. Old movies for my husband it means movies from 50s or 60s. for me, they are before 2000. ;) We are kinda old. I always wanted to watch the The Intouchables but never got a chance to do so. I may make some time this summer to finish it. :)

    Hope well and live well!


  30. the intouchables is my all time fav movie

  31. Yesterday I watched Expendables 3 and really liked it.

  43. Love that quote. I haven't seen any of those movies. I did see Mad Max which is crazy fun and Adaline which was very emotional which I did not think it would have such impact on me. Both very good.


  44. I saw the intouchables. great movie

  45. Not seen any of these, but they look interesting. I really like French cinema so I would give The Intouchables a watch.

  46. What movies have you watched this week?

    I'm off on Fridays and if my wife lets me I plan on watching Troy, the one with Brad Pitt and Eric Bana and maybe even The Great Escape with Steve McQueen.

  47. Nice post. I've haven't watched any of these movies, they seem cool, I should check them out :)

    Oh and Adele is just perfect, I love listening to her music :)


  48. I don't do movies,
