Ah, l'amour! From "Love Actually" to "Shakespeare in Love" to "Love Story," here's a collection of swoon-inducing movie quotes with the word "love" in them. Ya gotta love it! Movie Quotes: Love on the Big Screen"Great Expectations" (1998)
"She'll only break your heart, it's a fact. And even though I warn you, even though I guarantee you that the girl will only hurt you terribly, you'll still pursue her. Ain't love grand?" — Ms. Dinsmoor
Until recently, things weren't looking so good for Nicolas Cage. In the 90s he transformed from a geeky, twitchy presence in soft dramas like Moonstruck and Peggy Sue Got Married into the oddest action hero of all time. Unlike Stallone and Schwarzenegger, Cage was a true livewire, a psychotic, tender presence who could kick ass even while being a doting father; who could forget him brawling to the death for the sake of his son's soft toy in 1997's Con Air ("Put the bunny back in the box!"). Cage was something mainstream moviegoers and indie mavens could agree on, a soldier for hire who could be put to service by David Lynch in one of his dark, »

When Aussies make films about animals they tend to be of the wild, predatory, terrorising variety, scaring people with sharks (The Reef), crocodiles (Black Water, Rogue) wild pigs (Razorback), or an entire, terrifying ecosystem (Long Weekend).
So it's with some surprise and apprehension that we have news of two new Australian films in development...one about a donkey and the other about a dog.
Encore is reporting that The Kings of Mykonos director Peter Andrikidis will direct Simpson, about a man and his donkey on the battlefields of World War I. No doubt it will be a much bigger war story, using this tale as the story backbone.
It sounds a lot like Steven Spielberg's upcoming War Horse, but is in fact based on a famous Australian story about a stretcher bearer who carried the wounded on his donkey during the battle at Gallipoli, in Turkey.

Josh Lucas will star in the "Red Dog" which is a tale of a kelpie dog that brought together a mining community in the 1970s and '80s. Filming is scheduled for five weeks in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. Daniel Taplitz of "Chaos Theory" adapts based on the novel of the same title penned by Louis De Bernieres ("Captain Corelli's Mandolin"). Roadshow Films plans to release the film some time in 2011. ScreenWest, Screen Australia have invested with support from Woodside, Rio Tinto, Westrac, Skywest and Pedigree. Lucas' credits include 2008's "Management" with Jennifer Aniston and Steve Zahn as well as "Poseidon" back in 2006 »
Ahoy! Aaaargh! Pieces of eight! Savvy, etc… Just trying to get you in the right buccaneer mood for news that Penelope Cruz is in negotiations to join Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.It’s somewhat of a surprising bit of casting info, given that you wouldn’t normally expect to see Cruz cropping up in such a hefty tent pole, and especially since her “bigger” films have tended to be the mis-firing likes of Captain Corelli's Mandolin Gothika, Sahara. Oh, and a voice on G-Force.But as those titles suggest, she doesn’t always swim in indie waters and with her Nine director – the man who helped her score her latest Oscar nomination – Rob Marshall at the helm for this next Pirates adventure, plus what sounds like a meaty role written as an equal/foil to Johnny Depp’s Jack Sparrow, you can see why she might dive in. »
Though the legendary filmmaker has only directed a handful of feature films, Terrence Malick (The Thin Red Line) has quite a respectful following. With his most recent film, The Tree of Life starring Sean Penn and Brad Pitt, in post-production, Malick is already gearing up for his next project as Deadline Hollywood reports he has grabbed Christian Bale, Javier Bardem(No Country for Old Men), Rachel McAdams (Sherlock Holmes), and Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace) to star in an untitled romance that he has written and will direct later this year. Literally no story details have surfaced anywhere on the internet yet. This is quite an impressive gathering of talent for a romance that is currently only described as a "powerful and moving love story." But none of these actors are strangers to romance with films like Captain Corelli's Mandolin (Bale), Vicky Christina Barcelona (Bardem), The Notebook (McAdams), and Paris »
