This week I've decided to start a new game here on Technicolor Commentary. It's called the Movie Quote Horoscope. I've pulled quotes from films based on the characteristics listed in the Western Horoscope. It's your job to guess who said each quote and what movie the quote is from. Obviously it's easy to find the answers by looking it up on the web, but if you're a true quote connoisseur you should be able to get these without having to leave the page.
You can guess the answers in the comments section and I will replace the blanks below with the right answers as you guess them, giving you credit for the guess. Also, feel free to discuss the films mentioned here as they are definitely worth talking about!
Your Movie Quote Horoscope can be found right after the jump!
Guess what, I'm a Beatles fan. Now I want to force my opinions of them all over you. As someone who was born waaaaaay after they disbanded, (hell, I was born after one of them was already DEAD) I'm happy that new ways of hearing/analyzing their music crop up. Some of them are super-gimmicky, like that "1" album, but I'll respect anything that brings something new to the table. Yes, that includes the "Love" mashup/compilation album. If you haven't heard it, give it a try...just skip the god-awful Cirque du Soleil show. It's a painfully drawn-out embarrassment.
Anyway, that being said, I want to establish how excited I am for the Beatles version of Rock Band that's coming in September. At first, like many I'm sure, I was convinced this was gimmicky and cheap. Didn't pay it much mind, especially since the music I love most from their catalogue wouldn't exactly be fun to play along to on a guitar. "Hey Jude", anyone? Then, out of the blue, they premiered the opening cinematic for the game:
My GOD, it's transcendent!! It hits all the right notes (pun intended?) and has lots of little Beatles references peppered throughout. It's clear the makers of this game have done a liiiiiitle bit of homework. I've watched this almost a dozen times and it still gets me all worked up. They way they quickly track through the phases of their career is phenomenal!!! I ask you: Watch this a few times so you can really get the full effect.
One question...why can't the whole game look like this?
