“I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.”
Perhaps one of the greatest scenes in cinema history perfect in tone and execution unfolds before the viewer after over 100 minutes of pure visual bombardment punctuated with extreme bouts of violence all coming to an end not with a bang but with a somber moment of tranquility.
Cinephiles will undoubtedly know which film this quote comes from but although I’m known to write movie reviews from time to time this line of dialogue is going to serve a much different purpose here as a jumping off point for this blog.
