Wanna time travel? Check out these movies!

Do you want to experience a different “STYLE” of movies during the long, cold but relaxing (hopefully without homework) Thanksgiving?! Jazz or blues music playing in the car, country road, and hotel inns, all those nostalgic elements? At the same time, issues of racism, drugs, materialism?

It may be a good time for you to enjoy these fascinating movies based on ’60-’90s backgrounds.


Pulp Fiction — 

“Pride only hurts It never helps”

“ C’est la vie say the old folks, it go to show you never can tell!”

The Shawshank Redemption —

“Get busy livin’ or get busy dyin’”

“Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever die”

Forrest Gump —  

“My Mama always said: Life was like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re gonna get.”

The Godfather: Part III  —

“Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in”

The Green Book —  

“How did he manage to shake hands with them with a smile? Because it takes courage to change people’s hearts.”

“So if I’m not black enough, and if I’m not white enough, and if I’m not man enough, then tell me Tony, what am I?”

Leon —  

“Is life always this hard, or is it just when you are a kid?” “Always like this.”

Reservoir Dogs —  

“I’m sorry, I’m a police.”
