A-Z Challenge: T

T Day and almost done :) Also my text seems to want to be wonky. Again. Size and style want to do whatever they want without my permission. I hope I can get it back in line soon. Grrr...

They Live

This is still one of my favorite alien type movies. It's short, 93 minutes, it's funny, it has action. All equals good.
An everyday guy discovers aliens are among us and can only be seen with special sunglasses.

Roddy Piper, Keith David, Meg Foster 

Frank: I've walked a white line my entire life, I'm not about to screw that up.
Nada: White line's in the middle of the road, that's the worst place to drive.

Nada: I have come here to kick ass and chew bubblegum... and I'm all out of bubblegum.

Such a fun little movie. Lori Petty and Naomi Watts work great together. And Malcolm is as creepy as he can be :)
A woman breaks out of "jail" with another girl and they, along with the mutant kangaroo/humans decide to take down the company Water and Power.
Lori Petty, Ice-T, Naomi Watts, Malcolm McDowell

Jet Girl: You see, this tank isn't... isn't...
Tank Girl: What? Just one little adjective and we'll have a *whole* sentence. Isn't, glad, sad... mad... Lonely...
Jet Girl: Isn't... Operational.
Tank Girl: [seizes Jet by the throat] How do I know you're not lying?
Jet Girl: [choking] Because if, if I was lying, your lungs would be full of cyanide gas.
[Tank releases her]
Tank Girl: Cool! So we get a new tank.

Tell No One
(Ne le dis à personne)

This movies reminds us why French films do suspense so much better than us. Really. The chase scene had me catching my breathe. It is amazing.
A man accused of his wife's murder several years ago is once again under suspicion.
François Cluzet, Marie-Josée Croze, Kristin Scott Thomas

I couldn't find a quote so here is the trailer for you. (there is a quick nudity scene, so avert the peepers if you don't like it. )
