Daily Dialogue theme next week: Voice-Over

Join the Daily Dialogue crew: 3,327 consecutive days and counting.

The Daily Dialogue theme for next week: Voice-Over.

“Yes, I killed him… I killed him for money — and a woman — and I didn’t get the money and I didn’t get the woman…” Double Indemnity (1944)

This should be a breeze! Tons of movies use voice-over narration. What are your favorites?

What to do:

  • Copy/paste dialogue from IMDb Quotes or some other transcript source.
  • Copy/paste the URL of an accompanying video from YouTube or some other video source.
  • Any trivia about the movie which you think would be of interest to readers, we always welcome that.

I’d also ask you to think about why the dialogue is notable. Is there anything about the dialogue which provides some takeaway related to the craft of writing? If so, feel free to share your Dialogue On Dialogue.

‘Wonder Woman’ Tops Cruise’s ‘Mummy’ for Second Week at #1

While Universal’s release of The Mummy starring Tom Cruise is the #1 movie worldwide, it fell short of its anticipated mark domestically. The Cruise-led feature had to settle for second place, finishing nearly $ 25 million shy of Wonder Woman’s second weekend, as the DC Comics adaptation enjoyed a #1 finish at the weekend box office for a second week in a row. With an estimated $ 57 million, Warner Bros. and DC Comics’ release of Wonder Woman finished atop the weekend box office for a sec…

This Week In Trailers: Dear Coward on the Moon, Patti Cake$, Long Strange Trip, Rogue Warrior: Robot Fighter, WHITNEY ‘Can I Be Me’

Green Band Trailer

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we take a look at a little indie that could, get to know a different kind of white rapper, start spinning like a dervish in the parking lot with other hippie chicks, stand with mouth agape at some schlocky sci-fi, and remember Whitney Houston through the eyes of the director who brought us Kurt & Courtney.

Patti Cake$ Trailer

Fuuuuuuuuuuuu….

Man, I love when I get goosebumps when I watch a sizzling trailer like this. Director Geremy Jasper needs to give alms to whatever and whoever put this together because it is tight. Not only do I get where things are going but the flow from one moment to the next is next to fluid. I was inspired, thrilled, excited, and consuming those pull-quotes like affirmations to what I’m feeling as this thing spooled to the end. I don’t know when it’s dropping or where it’s going but I’m in. Completely.

Dear Coward on the Moon Trailer

I just had to share.

I don’t know how I stumbled upon director Carol Brandt’s film but I’m glad I did. The usual polish and high production value of many trailers just doesn’t compare to the earnest vibes that are pouring from every scene we see here. I’m just so enamored by the level of care that was put into making this very tiny movie a lot bigger than it is. The sense of weight and space are fully represented by the moments that are allowed to breathe and stretch out before us. The minimalist music choice in the background is a nice compliment to the ever so soft narration that punctuates our ears every few seconds. I do not know which way the story will go but it matters little when you have a trailer that might as well be a beautiful portrait of how independent movies, the true independent movies, can still move and stir your soul.

Long Strange Trip Trailer

Never listened to one song.

So I think we all someone who is REALLY into The Grateful Dead. My only connection to the band is that I saw Pearl Jam at Soldier Field on July 11th, 1995. The Dead let PJ use their stage and Jerry Garcia would be dead within the month. Director Amir Bar-Lev has a lot of ground to cover, hopefully he’ll be able to answer whether the band is really any good versus good under the right circumstances, but this is a fascinating subculture that, from a sociological point of view, I’m kind of interested in dissecting. I don’t think there are any shattering insights that will bend space and time but this is certainly a documentary that many will appreciate.

WHITNEY ‘Can I Be Me’ Trailer

Crack is whack.

Director Nick Broomfield doesn’t seem to be doing anything more or less than what he did with Kurt & Courtney. It’s not a knock, it’s just saying that what we have here seems to be your run of the mill bio-pic that is going to end real tragically. I’m intrigued enough, though, by what’s here because of how much attention Houston manage to attract in the decades that she was a part of the cultural zeitgeist. The trailer is solid, too, so it has that going for it.

 

Rogue Warrior Trailer

I just kind of love that this exists out there.

Director Neil Johnson should be given all the kudos for making something that my 13 year-old self would have rented as a VHS way back in the day.

Tribeca Film Festival: Main events taking at BMCC this week

The 2017 edition of the Tribeca Film Festival is well underway (even Hillary Clinton made a surprise appearance), but there are still plenty of movies and events going on this week, culminating with the 45th Anniversary Reunion of “The Godfather” cast at Radio City Music Hall. Although most of them are sold out, there is an option of “rush” tickets, which means that a line will form 45 minutes prior to the event and some tickets will be released for the same price if there are any cancelations or no-show. Here are the highlights for this week at the BMCC – Tribeca Performing Arts Center (199 Chambers St) April 25 8pm: “Paris Can Wait” World Premiere. Audiences will be treated to French food pairings inspired by the film. April 26 6pm: “The Exception” US Premiere. After the Premiere Screening: A conversation with director David Leveaux and actor Christopher Plummer. 8:45pm: “The Circle” World Premiere April 28 6pm: Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. World Premiere. After the episode: A conversation with co-creators and executive producers Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, and cast members Ellie Kemper, Tituss Burgess, Jane Krakowski, and Carol Kane. Moderated by co-host of Morning Joe, Willie Geist. April 29 10am: “Aladdin” Special Screening. Before the Movie: Join Brad Kane, the singing voice of Aladdin, for a special 25th anniversary performance of a soundtrack favorite..
