    Breakfast Club (1984) Dear Mr. Vernon, we accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. What we did *was* wrong. But we think you're crazy to make an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us... In the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions.

    Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction

    "Schindler's List" - This film is about as graphic as I can stand when it comes to holocaust films. The emotions alone in here pretty much make me sick for about a day. But the story is SO incredible that I am compelled to watch it again and again. What an amazing man, Oskar Schindler. This is a story of how he uses his business to save as many Jews as he can from the Germans.
