The Mammoth Movie Meme: Days: 21-23

Day 21 - Favourite romantic couple -

Tony Leung and Maggie Cheung - In the Mood for Love (2000)

Leung and Cheung as the thwarted lovers in 1960s Hong Kong. Sumptuous visuals, Nat King Cole on the track; very, very special.

Day 22 - Favourite final scene/line -

“Nada es sencillo” (“Nothing is simple”). Sadness and hope fuse in the perfectly judged finale of Talk to Her (2002), at once an ending and a beginning.

Day 23 - Best explosion or action scene  -

Well, "Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker!" Bruce on the loose in Die Hard (1988).


  1. Nice choices - particularly agree with the pairing of Leung and Cheung. I hope Maggie comes back sometime - she's too young to leave us!

    After the disappointment of My Blueberry Nights, i'm excited for Wong Kar Wai's Grand Master.

  2. Me too. Though I do have a soft spot for MY BLUEBERRY NIGHTS as well.
