Kate & Leopold

Just finished the movie "Kate & Leopold" on MBC2.. and tell U, Loved the conversations to the max. (btw: its yet another, a must 2nd watch on my list for convo.s NOT the plot )
here are some of my favorite quotes from the part i managed to watch..


Kate: I'm not very good with men.
Leopold: Perhaps you haven't found the right one.
Kate: Maybe. Or, uh... maybe that whole love thing is just a grown-up version of Santa Claus; just a myth we've been fed since childhood. So, we keep buying magazines, joining clubs, and doing therapy and watching movies with hit pop songs played over love montages all in a pathetic attempt to explain why our love Santa keeps getting caught in the chimney.

Stuart: It is no more crazy than a dog finding a rainbow. Dogs are colourblind, Gretchen. They don't see colour. Just like we don't see time. We can feel it, we can feel it passing, but we can't see it. It's just like a blur. It's like we're riding in a supersonic train and the world is just blowing by, but imagine if we could stop that train, eh, Gretchen? Imagine if we could stop that train, get out, look around, and see time for what it really is? A universe, a world, a thing as unimaginable as colour to a dog, and as real, as tangible as that chair you're sitting in. Now if we could see it like that, really look at it, then maybe we could see the flaws as well as the form. And that's it; it's that simple. That's all I discovered. I'm just a... a guy who saw a crack in a chair that no one else could see. I'm that dog who saw a rainbow, only none of the other dogs believed me.
Gretchen: I believe you.

Kate: And... it's a great thing to get what you want. It's a really good thing unless what you thought you wanted wasn't really what you wanted... because what you really wanted you couldn't imagine or you didn't think it was possible but what if someone came along who knew exactly what you wanted without asking they just knew... like they could hear your heart beating or listen to your thoughts and what if they were sure of themselves and they didn't have to take a poll and they loved you... but you hesitated and I... uh... I have to go... I'm sorry but... I have to go!

The funny thing is that I watched this movie right before the first conversation you quoted, and yes, they were "ear" catching? But the movie sucked though, if you need a reason, just read the Kate said in the first quote, plus, isn't this the exact story on the Jean Reno movie "Just Visiting" that was also aired on mbc2 like a month ago or so? In my personal opinion, if you've seen one, you've seen them all...

Besides I'm getting bored from the "Ross" personality, the guy with the impossible romance story with the girl that he gets at the end after manifesting a huge amount of clumsiness?? What exactly is that?

By the way, "Pulp fiction"! Thats a movie that has to be watched, re-watched, and then addicted to for the rest of your life...

Quentin Tarantino ROCKS!

I remember I watched that movie in a movie theatre on a New Year's Eve a few years back. The movie was ok, and as you mentioned parts of the dialogue were interesting, but what really made my night was "Until", Sting's credits song at the very end. It's one of those movies that I keep watching over and over again just for the credits :)

I watched the movie 4 times the last was when u watched it,I adore Meg Rayan always imagined she is so romantic and she always push me to unconditional love but I was touched by the parts you took from the dialogue more than the movie itself.

I am always facinated by the idea of moving in time, may be cause I always dreamed of living in the past. when do you think you would like to visit if you can moove into time.
