Reel Life Wisdom

Doug put together a great top-10 list this week: The Ten Smartest Movie Quotes of 2008. It's a neat project, and the book is great, too -- you can pick it up any time for 30 seconds and have something interesting planted in your brain. This one seems to ring true at the end of a year that will probably stand as a reality check for many:
“We seem to have reached the age where life stops giving us things and starts taking them away.” -- From the newest Indiana Jones

Good stuff. Unfortunately, I've only seen one of these films - The Dark Knight. My theatre-going experience of late has been sparse and disappointing.

Such profundity from a Hollywood confection like Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is surprising, though. Guess the writer got some of himself in there.

Hey, you're one up on me. And I don't think this was a list of "best films with good quote"...they might be stinkers, but the quotes are nice. You're probably right about that Indiana Jones quote -- the writer lucky that one snuck through the editing room.
