John Harrison/Khan quote of the day

maxresdefaultA remnant of a time long past. Genetically engineered to be superior so as to lead others to peace in a world at war. But we were condemned as criminals, forced into exile. For centuries we slept, hoping when we awoke things would be different. But as a result of the destruction of Vulcan your Starfleet begun to aggressively search distant quadrants of space. My ship was found adrift. I alone was revived… John Harrison was a fiction created the moment I was awoken by your Admiral Marcus to help him advance his cause, a smokescreen to conceal my true identity. My name is… KHAN.” – Khan, Star Trek Into Darkness

Here’s a quote from J.J. Abram’s Star Trek Into Darkness – and I must say Benedict Cumberbatch is playing one hell of a great baddie – and that voice really adds to the character!



Little Charles sings in August: Osage County

Well, I’ve never been a man of many words / And there’s nothing I could say that you haven’t heard / But I’ll sing you love songs ’till the day I die / The way I’m feeling / I can’t keep it inside // I’ll sing a sweet serenade whenever you’re feeling sad / And a lullaby each night before you go to bed / I’ll sing to you for the rest of your life / The way I’m feeling / I can’t keep it inside

Okay I watched this movie last week, and I really liked this song Little Charlie sings to Ivy… SPOILER Given that we first think they are cousins, their relationship was a little creepy at first, but when you think about it, they had the most normal relationship in this dysfunctional family – and they can’t have children, so okay… but then it turns out that they’re brother and sister (because any kind of normality in this family gets killed!!), and their relationship got creepy again..

But all in all it is a good movie, and I must say Benedict Cumberbatch does an okay southern accent.
