9 Greatest Movie Quotes And Scenes From The 1990s

9 Greatest Movie Quotes And Scenes From The 1990s
There are memorable movie lines and then, there are MEMORABLE movie lines. The kind you repeat to yourself, your friends and anyone you meet for weeks after you've seen the film. The best part about most of them, they weren't meant to be funny. Human perception, go figure! The 90's were a perfect time for the movies. They were a time to experiment and go outside the lines with stories, laughs and most of all, acting.

1. GoodFellas (1990)

"What do you mean, I'm funny?...You mean the way I talk? What?...Funny how? I mean, what's funny about it?...But I'm funny how? I mean, funny like I'm ...

How Ryan Gosling Resurrected The Movie Star

September 14th, 2011 11:00am EDT
gosling
Movie critics, driven to understandable cynicism by the onslaught of unnecessary remakes (there is no reason for another "Footloose") and re-imaginings of every superhero from the Green Lantern to a hammer-wielding Norse god, have declared the movie star extinct.  I think the stellar year actor Ryan Gosling, 30, is having is inspiring proof that the existence of the movie star in this entertainment climate is still possible. 

For this lover of pop culture, a movie star is more than someone who makes a lot of films and walks a lot of red carpets.  It’s Julia Roberts in “Pretty Woman,” “Th...

Gary Sinise
Gary Sinise enjoys visiting American soldiers as part of his charity work as they always tease him about his army veteran role in Forrest Gump.

The CSI: NY star dedicates much of his time to helping troops and their families, and is an active supporter of war veterans organizations.

He often takes time to visit servicemen and women, and puts up with plenty of ribbing over his portrayal of Vietnam War survivor Lieutenant Dan Taylor in Tom Hanks' hit 1994 film.

Sinise tells Fox News, "I'm always involved, trying to do what I can. I have a foundation that provides military support and he...

Tom Hanks: 'My Childhood Wasn't A Bed Of Roses'

Tom Hanks
Tom Hanks has opened up about his childhood, blaming his dysfunctional upbringing for his inability to form lasting bonds in adult life.

The Forrest Gump star's parents divorced when he was just five years old and he spent the rest of his early years moving from town to town with his siblings and dad Amos, who made a habit of uprooting the family to new locations. And Hanks believes the lack of stability in his youth has affected his ability to trust others.

He tells Britain's Daily Mirror, "When I was growing up, we moved around an awful lot so we didn't have a lot of friends around us...

'The Office' Gets Closure

The Office
So last week Michael wanted to go to Nashua and confront Holly in order to get closure. This week we see Kevin eating both a Popsicle and a Nutty Buddy at the same time.

Oscar judges him with a harsh look. Kevin says, "What? I didn't eat my lunch. Well, I didn't eat all my lunch." Then Angela comes in smiling, yes, smiling and happy. The kind of happy reserved for people who enjoy intercourse. Instead we find out that she has sold the engagement ring Andy gave her and with the proceeds she bought a $7,000.00 cat. Oh yes you heard that right, a cat. As Angela puts it, "She's hypoallerg...

The Best and Worst of John Travolta

December 4th, 2008 11:43am EST
John Travolta
In recent years, it's become hip to pick on John Travolta for his movie choices. It's strange, considering not many actors can say that they've starred in three truly iconic films (see numbers 1, 3, and 6 on the "best" list). He's also achieved longevity that many actors can only dream of, due in large part to his genuine, "good guy" persona. So, sure, he's made some bad films. Who hasn't? His good movies still outnumber the bad ones.

Since John is putting on the dog in the new animated hit, "Bolt," we thought it would be a good time to take a look at some notable films from Travolta's...

This year's Oscar race isn't very deep with talent, and at this point there are probably only eight films with a legitimate shot at getting a nod for Best Picture. But those that have a chance at a nomination also have a great chance of winning.

One such film, "The Dark Knight", has already hit screens, but the rest of this group will premiere in the coming weeks as studios scramble to get their prestige pictures on the big screen before the year-end deadline.

The Best And Worst Music Videos Supporting Barack Obama

October 13th, 2008 12:37pm EDT
Barack Obama
Why does Barack Obama attract enough attention from musicians that they wish to create a song for him? Is it the fact that this is the point in history where a man of color has a chance to lead the free world? Perhaps it is as simple as the idea that widely-known musicians generally lean to the left on the political spectrum.

Today, musicians have a new medium to release their work on: the Internet - or, more specifically, YouTube. However, since it doesn't cost any money to publish on YouTube, it opens the door to amateur (that's putting it lightly) attempts. Here are the three best ...

Spotlight On Talented, Oscar-Winning Movie Stars

There are many talented people in Hollywood who have won a coveted Oscar, and there are so many talented winners that it's difficult to just name a few.

Daniel Day-Lewis is known as one of the most selective actors in the industry; he's starred in only four movies in the last 10 years. Whenever Day-Lewis has a movie being released, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences stands up and takes notice. He's won two Academy Awards for Best Actor: His first was in 1989 for his role as Christy Brown in "My Left Foot" and the other in 2007 for his work as Daniel Plainview in "There Wil...

The Three Best & Worst Films Starring Tom Hanks

April 18th, 2008 2:29pm EDT
Tom Hanks
Tom Hanks is a rare movie star in that he is a top leading man without topping anyone's most beautiful list. Rather he established, and maintained, his stardom by fusing a "boy next door" image with undeniable talent.

He is equally at home with romantic comedies and dramatic war epics; however, he seems reticent to play the meanie. More than most, he can fit into a role without exhibiting a "Tom Hanks" persona. He has even delivered a number of memorable performances on "Saturday Night Live," a venue that allows true talent to reveal itself. (And on the flip side, it emphasizes those ...

Movies With Heart: The 100 Best 'Romdramedies' Of The Past 20 Years

There's the quintessential romantic comedy, and then there's the romdramedy. Similar to a dramedy (in which there is an equal balance of humor and serious content), a romdramedy combines comedy and drama with that mushy thing we call romance.

This is not a list of the best films over the past 20 years. Rather it is a list that gives preferences to those films that best combine all three elements - romance, comedy and drama.

Films like Magnolia and The Matrix were barred from competition, while films like Down with Love were considered (however, that one didn't make the cut)....

It's no secret that one of America's favorite days of the year is opening day (in turn, we are not a fan of the Japan trips that do not allow all teams to open on the same day). With all the controversies that exist in baseball today (steroids, HGH, the designated hitter) it is nice to look to the movies and find an innocence that we all may be losing a grip on. In the spirit of that innocence, we present the top five greatest baseball moments on film:

'Charlie Wilson's War'- Momentous But Momentless

December 21st, 2007 10:11am EST
Charlie Wilson
Charlie Wilson was a man who took risks with seemingly no regard to the danger he was placing himself in. He would rather make a joke than admit defeat. Ultimately, when he's resolved to take action, he lowers his head and rams into adversity - crashing down hallways and flying in jet airplanes, unflappable and resolute.

Charlie Wilson's War is no different. Helmed by one of the greatest directors of all time, Academy and Tony award winner Mike Nichols ("The Graduate," "Catch 22," "The Birdcage," "Primary Colors" and Broadways' "Spamalot," "Odd Couple," and "Barefoot in the Park"), the...
