I have to start out with an apology for missing last week's Favorite Movie Monday. I was leaving early that morning for Phoenix to go see the U2 and Black Eyed Peas concert and I completely spaced it. I will post pictures hopefully sometime this week. School and work have taken over my life.
Children of Men starring Clive Owen, Julianne Moore, Michael Caine, and Chiwetel Ejiofor
All of the trailers on youtube, embedding is disabled. So that is unfortunate, here is the URL for the trailer if you'd like to watch it.
I love this movie. Its so amazing. Crazy and violent but deep and makes you think. Everyone should watch this movie. Its set in the year, 2027, the youngest person has just died and he was 18 years old. It spirals out of control from there.
Two memorable quotes from the movie:
Theodore Faron: I can't really remember when I last had any hope, and I certainly can't remember when anyone else did either. Because really, since women stopped being able to have babies, what's left to hope for?
Miriam: As the sound of the playgrounds faded, the despair set in. Very odd, what happens in a world without children's voices.
