Tenth second of the twentieth minute


I stole this idea from Nathaniel Rogers. These are screen caps of the twentieth minute and tenth second of movies.

Boring story, the screen caps in this post are from movies from my hard drive. This hard drive used to be in my first laptop until, distracted from Pabst Blue Ribbon, I accidentally poured beer on it. I watched these movies are from my college years, when I learned how much I love movies and that I chose the wrong major. (No not really. Are you kidding? I’d rather have hung out with nerdy English majors and rich Art History majors than snobby film majors.)

Their decontextualized oppression linked to IBM, possible from the World War II era.

After telling someone tha smooking is not Islamic, he looks for someone in a maze.

“Happy.” “So happy.” They open the door, joining the crowd of the upper class, waiting.

“Goodbye, little yellow bird…”

He tries to brush her off. “Alcohol rub. Cologne.”

Clandestine interview.

“You’re lying. I can always tell.”

It’s hard doing damage control for a rogue employee “I don’t have all the information yet.”

After the car explosion. “Go on.” “What do you mean…”

We can hear his wife groan. He reads the book to research his new client, for tourism.

“But I heard him say Maude was with God!” “That’s right. I was at Bible camp.”

After a flashback of bile spreading through a body. “But we’re gonna do this without firin’…”

“They can always get somebody else.” Machines roar.

This series for me turned into a context of which movie collection of mine is cooler. I might have given this post an unfair advantage by being nostalgic, but it’s your call.


20:10: Make yourself at home


Original idea from Nathaniel Rogers and The Film Experience,  I’ll screen cap the twentieth minute and tenth second of random movies. ‘But shouldn’t it be 20:11?’ Shut up. Also, these films are from my laptop.

The couple looks at each other. This is the most human Vincent Gallo will look.

[The image that should be between these two contains nudity and will not be posted.]

“Make yourself at home.” She fakes a smile, the start of a grueling proecess.

‘Closer,’ the magician implores and successfully gets the child’s attention.

Looking behind him. He knows he’s being followed, putting his brother in danger.

After she gets bad news. Her oblivious daughter watches the television. She keeps silent.

‘As a side note…’

Her daughter looking for old records of mommy’…A girl for you, a boy for me…’

‘…Bob Peterson…’

A woman tells them to take off their clothes and hat. “He’s doing well, eh, Itzhak?”

‘Terrible.’ As she enters, feeling the constraints of costume.

‘Thanks, Cooter.’ She kisses the man on the lips.

Telling her plan to the other girls, fitting in with the unionized workers.


20:10: The imitators edition


I stole this idea from Nathaniel Rogers. These are screen caps of the twentieth minute and tenth second of movies, many of which I can’t really expand on as he eloquently does. But really, this is posted because My VLC shuffle played The Kids are All Right and Shutter Island, which are already taken. [ETA; Also, I have not and will not put the names of the movies where these screen capscome from, for guessing reasons]

A rival painter observes, praises master yet talking behind the protagonist’s back.

“Excusez moi, numero two!” “HEY!”

“What happened?” “Oh, you didn’t hear…”

It’s not high school anymore. Friends dirty dancing in public…

He feels the pains of ‘adult sizing’ in a self-aware amusement park.

“…children, heaven bless them, they will look up to me and mind me…”

Los Angeles, night-time. The vandals rise and fall.

Traffic. No dialogue, obviously.

“Yeah, well, where is he? How come he takes a lousy stinkin’ job?”

At 3AM, a careless nursemaid tells the truth to a budding actor.
