Some Anvils Need To Be Dropped — Film

Nelson Mandela: Someone gave me this note when I was leaving Boipatong, and I want to read it to you. [reads from note] It says, "No peace; do not talk about peace. We have had enough. Please, Mr. Mandela, no peace. Give us weapons, not peace." [puts note aside] Here is my answer; there is only one way forward...and that is peace. I know that is not what you want to hear, but there is no other way. I am your leader, and as long as I am your leader, I am going to give you leadership! As long as I am your leader, I am going to tell you, always, when you are wrong. And I tell you now, you are wrong. I have given my life to the struggle, I have been willing to die, I have lost 27 years of my life in prison. But I tell you now, I have forgiven them. If I can forgive them, then you can forgive them. We cannot win a war, but we can win an election. So, my people; stay home, be peaceful, and when Election Day!
Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom

Too Dumb To Live — Film

So Bad It's Good — Film

"There's something lovable about a movie that just doesn't fucking care."

Awesome Music — Film

"The fifth time is like the first time. It's like anything else we do creatively. We sit down with a blank piece of paper and we hope that we're going to have the inspiration and the energy and the good luck that we've had in the past. So I think every time is the same challenge all over again, and we rise to meet it in the best way we can and that's the thing that keeps us vitally interested in what we do."

"Kneel before the soundtrack. Submit to it!"
Mike Nelson, the RiffTrax of 300

"Good film music... can invest a scene with terror, grandeur, gaiety or misery ... propel narrative swiftly forward, or slow it down."
