After the old classic movie cliché : « I Could Tell You but I’d Have to Kill You » , the good old « We’ve got Company  » and  « Get Out of There « . And the famous Mirror Scare situation and the most overused line : « You look like Shit ». Here is the « Blah Blah Blah ».

Dans le série des clichés des scénaristes du cinéma, et après « Je peux te le dire, mais après je devrais te tuer » ,  le trop utilisé « On a de la compagnie » , le  « tire-toi de là » , le bien fameux coup du miroir, et  le « Tu as une sale tronche ». Voici l’exceptionnel « Blah Blah Blah ».

After the old classic movie cliché : « I Could Tell You but I’d Have to Kill You » , the good old « We’ve got Company » and  « Get Out of There ». And the famous Mirror Scare situation. Here is the most overused line : « You look like Shit ». I’m glad if it pleases you.

Dans le série des clichés des scénaristes du cinéma, et après « Je peux te le dire, mais après je devrais te tuer » ,  le trop utilisé « On a de la compagnie » , le  » tire-toi de là » , le bien fameux coup du miroir, voici enfin le « Tu as une sale tronche ». C’est dingue comme il peut être utilisé.

En hommage à l’excellente chanson de Cee-lo, F*ck You qui est une pure merveille, voici une compilation de F-You du cinéma. C’est toujours sympa à voir et  de retrouver les titres des films.

If you’re anything like me, you’ve been grooving on that Cee-Lo “F*ck You” song for the last couple of days (included below for reference).  Just when I’d listened to that for about the fifth time, video editor Oliver sent over this latest mash up, a fun compilation of memorable movie F yous.  You can send it to a boss or “friend”, or just enjoy it alone, like the hooker you pay to insult you.  Me, I prefer the Coming to America and Anchorman versions the best — there’s something about a happy, triumphant F You that’s better than a bitter, angry F you.  Though I do admit Steven Seagal’s contribution has a certain panache.  He probably hasn’t lifted his leg that high in ten years.

« I Could Tell You but I’d Have to Kill You » is a classic movie cliché in the same vein as We’ve got Company and Get Out of There.

Ah, le cinéma est plein de clichés. Cette fois-ci, c’est la fameuse réplique : « Je peux te le dire, mais après je devrais te tuer. »  Pour ceux qui aime ce genre de séquence, il existe aussi le « We’ve got Company » et forcément le « Get Out of There« .  J’aime bien revoir ces scènes de film, ça fait plaisir. Il y a même Obama qui s’amuse à dire cette phrase, c’est la preuve que le président des États-Unis est un cinéphile.
