Black And White... And Red

Anthropologists and art historians have discovered that culturally, the human perception of color begins with three primary colors: black, white and red. These colors are the most basic to humans of all the colors, and all societies seem to recognize them and their symbolism, even if no other colors are recognized as important. Arguments are as varied as the theory that they are the colors of shadow, light and life (blood) Black: Power, sexuality, formality, elegance, wealth, mystery, fear, evil, unhappiness, depth, sadness, remorse, anger, anonymity, mourning, death, austerity, detachment.

Actresses So Good at Being Bad

The expression 'good at being bad' has often been used for the likes of Gary Oldman, Ralph Fiennes, Jeremy Irons, Hugo Weaving... in other words: "actors". But ladies also had their share of fun playing the bad ones, from the horrible and scary to the grandiose and funny, from the flamboyant witches to the manipulative (well, the word that rhymes...). While they also garnered acclaim by playing good characters, all these distinguished actresses elicited strong responses by playing villains - at least four memorable cinematic villains.

Perennial Unlucky Oscar Nominee Meryl Streep

Meryl Streep is considered the greatest actress of her generation. Streep's twenty-one acting Oscar nominations are 75% more than any other actor or actress in Oscar history. However, Streep only has one Oscar win the last thirty-six years despite being nominated seventeen times. As the saying goes, if she didn't have bad luck, she wouldn't have any luck at all. Will her unlucky streak continue and never win another Oscar again, which begs the question? In retrospect, which Meryl Streep performance among her eighteen non-winning Oscar nominated roles is her greatest?

Most Iconic New York City Scene

Ah, the city that never sleeps... It's hard not to associate NYC with the movies. Many of which, and more specifically many scenes, are responsible for instilling this idea in our head that it is the perfect city, filled with dreams and allure. These scenes delved deep into our collective consciousness and reinforced the magic that we feel when we think of The Big Apple. Which of these iconic New York movie scenes do you consider to be the greatest? (Please Note: Since the majority of most of these films take place in New York, I have tried to pick the most iconic scene from each that most memorably depicts the city.)

"We'll always have Paris"

And we all have in our minds this immortal, and incredibly romantic, quote delivered by Bogart is Casablanca (1942). Basically, Rick invites Ilsa, in a moment of deep sadness, to stick to the one happy memory they both share, which is that beautiful time they had in Paris, and that no one will ever take away from them, not even war, not even terror. And I guess this quote painfully echoes the events that recently stroke the most beautiful town in the world. No matter what happens, we must all remember Paris, as the symbol of happiness and lifetime memories, the world's must-see, a magical town that movies never ceased to paid tribute to, and it's not a hazard that most of them happen to be romances. And in this melancholy time for the world, as we all have a little of Paris in our hearts, I thought it would be a good idea to pay a cinematic homage to the City of Lights, in memory of the victims of the Paris attacks, and in fact, all the innocent victims of terror and barbarity in the world. So, apart from Rick's legendary farewell, which of these ten other quotes constitutes the best tribute to Paris? Pour en discuter, veuillez cliquer sur ce lien
