->''You see I'm tired, I'm spent, I'm really [[FeelingTheirAge feeling my age]]\\
You know life is twice as hard when you're living half on the stage,\\
and I barely have the energy to sing you this song,\\
So let's get some [[WesternAnimation cartoons]] and [[HardDrinkingPartyGirl Vodka]], and do 'em all night long!''

->''"''Film/{{Titanic|1997}}'', as a movie, [[ClicheStorm played it safe]]. All the things I suggested to add depth to the caracters were disregarded. Creator/JamesCameron isn't a lousy screenwriter; he might in fact be a fucking genius of some kind. But whether it's emotional familiarity, vicarious fantasy romance, simple adventure and excitement, sci-fi action and danger, or cheap thrills and laughs--[[TropesAreNotBad these are movies, and this is what people love about them]]: the ability to vicariously transport yourself into a fantasy world, away from your boring day job as a bank teller, a CPA, or a tollbooth operator."''

->''"What I find important when I read a book or watch a movie is that it just hits you and messes you up! The commonplace, the banal everyday life, I just find it tedious.
