It is what it is...or, is it?

The following is a quote from the film, The Fugitive, which had me thinking about the point of this post.

Marshal Biggs: This is hinky. This guy's a college graduate, he went to medical school, he's not gonna come through all the security, go to the county lockup, to find someone his own people say does not exist. Hinky.
Deputy Marshal Samuel Gerard: Well, what does that mean Biggs, 'hinky'?
Marshal Biggs: I don't know. Strange.
Marshal Henry: Weird.
Deputy Marshal Samuel Gerard: Well, why don't you say strange or weird? I mean hinky, that has no meaning.
Marshal Biggs: Well, we say hinky.
Deputy Marshal Samuel Gerard: I don't want you guys using words around me that have no meaning. I'm taking the stairs and walking.
Marshal Biggs: [sotto voice] How about 'bullshit?' How about 'bullshit', Sam?

Was hinky, which "has no meaning," a pet peeve for Samuel Gerard.  I think so.

Well, I thought I'd share a pet peeve of an expression I've heard used often, which, for me, has no meaning; it's empty, with nothing to sink your teeth into, a cop out.

The expression: It is what it is...

What is?  How poor many are, children with cancer or autism, world conflict ... What is its meaning?

To me, it's throwing one's arms into the air, evading trying to understand the underlying meaning of any or anyone's situation.  Is the observer feeling so helpless or paralyzed to do something about it, so It is what it is?

It's a blanket statement which leaves no understanding or empathy to what It Is. It seems to me, that many of us would rather face the truth -- good, bad, or ugly -- while others just don't have the time to understand what is more than meets the eye, or just bury their heads in the sand.

Life is complicated with limitless shades of gray.  Would we say Robin Williams' suicide by asphyxiation is what it is, or do we try to understand the pain he was in to resort to such an ending to his life.

Yes, I find a lack of empathy and caring in making the blanket statement, it is what it isThere's no feeling, no compassion, no commitment.  Honestly, I'm tired of hearing it.  Life just isn't that simple.

I wholeheartedly agree with the above, "It is what it is. But you have the power to turn it into an isn't."

JOAN Alexandra Rosenberg RIVERS (née Molinsky; June 8, 1933 – September 4, 2014)

(CNN) -- Comedian Joan Rivers died in a New York hospital Thursday afternoon, a week after suffering cardiac arrest during a medical procedure, her daughter said.
"She passed peacefully at 1:17 p.m. surrounded by family and close friends," Melissa Rivers said in a written statement.
The funeral for Rivers will be at Temple Emanu-El in Manhattan on Sunday, according to temple spokeswoman Elizabeth Fezrine. Details, including the time and if the public will be allowed to attend, are not yet known, she said.
Rivers, 81, had been on life support at Manhattan's Mount Sinai hospital, where she was taken after she stopped breathing at the Yorkville Endoscopy clinic last Thursday.  Rivers was undergoing an apparently minor elective procedure at the clinic when she suffered cardiac and respiratory arrest, according to the New York Fire Department.

Paramedics took her by ambulance to Mount Sinai Hospital, about a mile from the clinic, where she was initially listed in critical condition. The outpatient clinic is now being investigated by the New York State Department of Health, spokesman James O'Hara said.
Her death also has triggered an investigation by the New York medical examiner's office, its spokeswoman, Julie Bolcer ,told CNN. "The cause and manner of death will be announced at some point," she said.
The Rivers family made very little information about her medical condition public, finally confirming Tuesday that she was on life support. "My son and I would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff of Mount Sinai Hospital for the amazing care they provided for my mother," her daughter said. "Cooper and I have found ourselves humbled by the outpouring of love, support, and prayers we have received from around the world. They have been heard and appreciated.' Melissa Rivers and her son Cooper have spent the past week by Rivers' hospital bedside, rushing there last Thursday when they learned of her illness.
'My mother's greatest joy in life was to make people laugh," Melissa Rivers said. "Although that is difficult to do right now, I know her final wish would be that we return to laughing soon."
The clinic has not responded to repeated calls from CNN about the state's investigation.
Yorkville Endoscopy's website says it is an "ambulatory surgical center" that has been "approved by the Department of Health." The description of its accreditations is blank.
"Yorkville Endoscopy is a state of the art facility, staffed by highly experienced endoscopists whose mission is to provide safe and compassionate care to patients and their families," the website says.
Tributes to Rivers and her long career included one from former first lady Nancy Reagan, whose close circle of friends included Rivers. "Joan Rivers was not only a dear friend, but one of the kindest and funniest people I ever knew," Reagan said. "I doubt there's anyone who hasn't laughed at her or with her until they cried. Today our tears are those of sadness. I know I join millions in saying, 'Thanks for the good times Joan, we will truly miss you.' My love and deepest sympathy go to Melissa and Cooper."
Former CNN host Larry King knew Rivers for 45 years. "She knew no boundaries," King said. "Everything was funny to her. You couldn't' really object because she took no prisoners."
Donald Trump, who chose her as the winner on a season of "Celebrity Apprentice," said Rivers "was stronger at the end than she was at the beginning. She had unbelievable stamina."
Ryan Seacrest, who worked with her on E! shows, called Rivers "a trailblazer in so many ways."
Liza Minnelli said Rivers was "my dear friend." "I will miss her but I will always remember the laughter and friendship she brought into my life," Minnelli said.
E! and NBCUniversal, producers of River's TV show "Fashion Police," sent condolences to her family on "this incredibly sad day." "For decades Joan has made people laugh, shattered glass ceilings and revolutionized comedy," the studio said.
"She was unapologetic and fiercely dedicated to entertaining all of us and has left an indelible mark on the people that worked with her and on her legions of fans.  She's been a much beloved member of the E! family for over 20 years and the world is less funny without her in it.  Today our hearts are heavy knowing Joan will not be bounding through the doors."

"Programs help filmmakers navigate the industry, develop new audiences, and encourage close interaction between all participants."

According to Empire Magazine, following are the top 15 of the 50 greatest independent films, as presented on AMC.

15. Blood Simple (1984), d. Joel CoenThe Coen Brothers launched themselves upon an unsuspecting world with this noir throwback in 1984, and they haven't looked back. But all their subsequent success - and many of their trademark flourishes - can be dated back to this Texas-set tale of private eyes, murder most foul and more double (triple, and quadruple) crosses than you can count. The style is present and correct in the almost black-and-white locations and bright red blood, but it's the tone that stands out. Like Fargo without the warmth of Marge Gunderson, or Miller's Crossing without the qualms of conscience, Blood Simple is the darkest, and arguably up there with the best, of the Coens' films.
14. Stranger Than Paradise (1984, W. Ger/US), d. Jim Jarmusch
Jim Jarmusch is another in the small canon of American directors who have spent their entire career outside of the mainstream - hell, even when he's got Johnny Depp in his movie the box office seems relatively unperturbed. But it's this early work - just his second feature - that stands among the best. Possibly the biggest reason for Stranger Than Paradise's inclusion here is, despite all outward appearances, Jarmusch's craftily disguising that he knows exactly what he's on about. It wasn't for another film or two that his themes of the universality of humankind, regardless of race, creed or colour, became apparent. Consider also his legacy on the likes of Wayne Wang and Greg Araki.
13. Memento (2000), d. Christopher Nolan
Christopher Nolan's modestly budgeted sleeper hit managed to claw it's way over the indie fence and into mainstream recognition on pure ingenuity. Before Memento, the 'character with amnesia' subgenre was, generally, a rather tired one (and has become so again since), but using the simplest of devices - telling the story's episodic structure in reverse order - the filmmakers (Nolan's brother Jonathan wrote the basis of the screenplay) forged a tale that was arse-clenchingly compelling, and ironically, unforgettable. And let's not forget it was the first major breakthrough in screenwriting structure since Pulp Fiction and its many clones, which in itself deserves an award.
12. Eraserhead (1977), d. David Lynch
Another piecemeal movie - shot over five years on a virtually non-existent budget, prompting lead Jack Nance to keep that same distinctive pre-Marge Simpson haircut for the duration of the shoot - Eraserhead is one of the strangest, most perplexing movies you'll ever see. It's jam-packed with deeply unsettling imagery, a grating, scraping, percussive soundtrack and an almost omnipresent sense of dread and doom. Despite all that, it's one of Lynch's most complete, a true surrealist masterpiece for everybody, barring the guy who made it - in Lynch's world, this is probably the equivalent of Bad Boys 2.
11. Bad Taste (1987, NZ), d. Peter Jackson
Compared to the long hard slog that was making Bad Taste, the Rings trilogy was a walk in the park. Famously funded almost entirely by himself and shot on weekends over a period of FOUR YEARS, Jackson not only wrote, directed, and appeared in a couple of roles, but supervised the special effects, constructed makeshift 'steadicam' equipment and probably made the tea, too. The result is as ramshackle as you'd imagine, but is also an endlessly inventive, vibrant alien invasion movie with extraordinary levels of gore, black comedy and an early peek of the scampish, OTT sense of humour that is evident in even the most serious and worthy of PJ's canon. At times you can almost hear him giggle himself silly, behind the camera.

What makes a movie quote so quotable?

What movie has the most entries on the American Film Institute's (AFI) list of 100 best movie quotes?

Casablanca with six: l) "Here's looking at you, Kid." 2) "Of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world, she walks into mine." 3) "We'll always have Paris." 4) "You stop breathing, you die. You stop fighting, the world dies." 5) Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship." 6) "Play it once, Sam.  For old times' sake."

Just repeating these quotes, immediately brings one right back to that place, that mood, as is in the case with hundreds of great films.  Just a few of many favorite screenwriters are Joseph Mankowicz, Billy Wilder, William Goldman. For me, one of Joseph Mankiewicz's best films is All
About Eve; its famous quote, "Fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy night!". From Billy Wilder's Some Like It Hot; "Well, nobody's perfect."  And William Goldman's Marathon Man; Is It Safe?" But his best quote about Hollywood in general is, "Nobody knows anything."

So, why does a line become quotable? 

William Goldman

(CNN) -- Screenwriter William Goldman has written some of the most famous lines in movie history.
You know the ones. "My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die from The Princess Bride. "Is it safe?" from Marathon Man. "Follow the money" from All the President's Men. "Think ya used enough dynamite there, Butch?" from Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.
He's won two Oscars, two Edgars, a Hugo and a career achievement award from the National Board of Review. He obviously knows how to write. And he still has no idea why some of his dialogue manages to become part of the national vernacular. There are so many factors that go into creating a movie, he says, that it's all a writer can do to get his script right.
"When you're doing a movie you have no idea who the powers on the movie are going to be, and is there going to be a star who wants this line or doesn't like that line. You're at the mercy of everybody and you do the best you can," he says. "But you never know."
(It's no wonder that another of Goldman's most famous lines is his summation of Hollywood: "Nobody knows anything.")
If you're a screenwriter, it's not exactly something you can plan. Maybe the actor gives a line a poor spin; maybe the director doesn't capture the moment; maybe the film editor changes the rhythm of the scene in the cutting room. It's been said that nobody plans to make a bad film, but with so many variables at play, even a good script isn't bulletproof.
Fred Shapiro, editor of "The Yale Book of Quotations" and several other books in the field, points out that movie quotations can be a shorthand -- something that brings up powerful associations.
"Some movie quotes become popular because they evoke a great film, or a great scene, or a great actor," he says. "Sometimes the words of the quote become proverbial -- something like 'The natives are restless' or 'If you build it they will come' or 'Win one for the Gipper!' They enter into the language."
He also notes that lines tend to get condensed or changed. For example, he was quick to point out that the correct quotation from "Field of Dreams" is "If you build it, he will come."
They're also social glue. Repeat a line from popular comedies such as "Airplane!" or "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," and you can immediately establish bonds with similarly minded individuals. This summer Marvel fans have been fond of repeating, "I am Groot."
The late Harold Ramis was a champ at composing such wisecracks, anti-establishment jokes that have been repeated by generations of viewers.
During the Oscars, Pepsi even promoted its "mini can" with a commercial that featured only well-known movie quotations. Why that strategy? "We want to take this to an emotional place," Seth Kaufman, PepsiCo's VP-marketing for colas, told Advertising Age
Shapiro makes a distinction between popular quotations and catchphrases. The latter is more of a trademark, he says -- Bugs Bunny's "What's up, doc?", for example, and incessantly repeated. They're often even said in the voice of the performer. It's hard to say "Make my day" without evoking Clint Eastwood's clenched-jaw delivery.
These days, thanks to repeated television showings, video streaming and the Internet, quotations attach themselves to our craniums more quickly than ever. Ironically, that means the person who wrote the immortal line is now more ignored than ever. Think about Goldman's classics: "Who do you think of, the actor or the writer?"
"Nobody cares about who the screenwriter is," Goldman says. "That's one of the things you have to deal with if you write a screenplay. Nobody has the least knowledge of what's going to work, and everybody wants Tom Cruise."


Part of the AFI 100 Years... series, AFI's 100 Years... 100 Movie Quotes is a list of the top 100 movie quotations in American cinema. The American Film Institute (AFI) revealed the list on June 21, 2005, in a three-hour television program on CBS.

How many do you recognize?

The list

The table below reproduces the quotes as the AFI published them. However, the following have since been identified as being misquoted by the AFI.
  • #2: Marlon Brando says "I'm gonna make him an offer he can't refuse", not "...going to...".
  • #4: Judy Garland says "Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore." (AFI misquotes the line as "I've got a feeling...")
  • #40: Tom Hanks says "My momma always said, 'Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get.'" (AFI omitted "my.")
  • #66: Charlton Heston says "Take your stinking paws off me, you damned dirty ape", not "Get..."
  • #78: Keir Dullea says "Open the pod bay doors, HAL." (AFI added "please.")
  • #98: Patrick Swayze says "Nobody puts Baby in the corner", not "...a corner."
