Riley is my fav!
One of the best lines in cinematic history.
“Let me tell you something. You will spend your lives trying to figure out how to keep others down because it makes you feel more important. Why her? All of you people, there is a big world out there - bigger than prom, bigger than high school. And it won’t matter if you were the prom queen, or the quarterback of the football team, or the biggest nerd in school. Find out who you are, and try not to be afraid of it.” - Never Been Kissed
Pride & Prejudice (2005)
Favorite Movies of All Time - Bring It On (2000)
“This is not a democracy. It’s a cheerocracy.”
Wilder was initially hesitant, but finally accepted the role under one condition:
When I make my first entrance, I’d like to come out of the door carrying a cane and then walk toward the crowd with a limp. After the crowd sees Willy Wonka is a cripple, they all whisper to themselves and then become deathly quiet. As I walk toward them, my cane sinks into one of the cobblestones I’m walking on and stands straight up, by itself… but I keep on walking, until I realize that I no longer have my cane. I start to fall forward, and just before I hit the ground, I do a beautiful forward somersault and bounce back up, to great applause.
When Stuart asked why, Wilder replied, “because from that time on, no one will know if I’m lying or telling the truth.”
And this right here is why Wilder’s wonka is better than Depp’s.
This version is the only version in my life.
Happy birthday, Harry!
