Another oldy, but goody - John Huston - some of his movies - Key Largo, The Asphalt Jungle, The African Queen, The Maltese Falcon, The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean and The Treasure of Sierra Madre,... "Badges? we ain't got no badges. We don't need no badges. I don't have to show you any stinking badges!" (caution, do not use this line at airport check in or with anyone envolved with homeland security. A prerequisite for the job is a lack of a sense of humor)

The thin line between genius and insanity is less of a border than a union.

Michael Bay? I've got nothing against B movies and their directors, but you won't see me heaping laurels on either.
