Popcorn Quotes by W. C. Fields, Zac Posen, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Orville Redenbacher, Urmila Matondkar, Chris Weitz and many others.
‘The Golden Compass‘ became a bad experience because the studio didn’t have faith in the strength of the ideas of the novel, which is ironic because it’s one of the greatest fantasy novels ever written, if not the greatest, and they took the religion out of it and tried to turn it into a popcorn movie.
I love meetings with suits. I live for meetings with suits. I love them because I know they had a really boring week and I walk in there with my orange velvet leggings and drop popcorn in my cleavage and then fish it out and eat it. I like that. I know I’m entertaining them and I know that they know.
There’s something strange about theater. My characters consistently demonize elitism, but of course it’s taking place in a theater where only so many people can see it. I’ve been in silly popcorn movies – the kind of thing that as an actor you might feel embarrassed about – but those movies reach many more people.
We’d sit with a big bowl of popcorn, wrapped together in a queen-size blanket, and would escape to a place where magic was ours for the taking, where men rescued the people they loved instead of abandoning them. A place where, no matter how bad things looked at that moment, there would always be a happy ending.
I’ve never met a popcorn ball I didn’t like.
When I was a kid, we’d go to the movies, and my parents would reach out to everyone around us in the theater, most of whom could barely afford the movie ticket. They’d hand out popcorn and Milk Duds, strike up conversations with them, lend shoulders to cry on, learn their names, and smile at everyone.
In 1972, there was still a New York City law prohibiting women there from ‘furnishing refreshments to the audience or spectators at any place of public amusement.’ That’s right: Until the law was repealed in 1977, it was technically illegal for women to work as popcorn vendors in Madison Square Garden.
The only way to see a movie is in a big theater, on a big screen, with a big bag of popcorn.
The most common criticism I’ve seen is that I write ‘popcorn fantasy:’ lightweight action-adventure. Some people call it that as they explain why they love it for exactly that reason. I’m cool with that, either way. I just nod and let it go.
The best reason to go to the movies is to be with other people. Eating the popcorn, being with other people you don’t know.
It’s born of sheer laziness. My signature dishes are salads, hamburgers and popcorn. That’s not the kind of stuff that gets you an entry in the distinguished book of culinary records. Being known for great soufflГ© is one thing but a good hamburger? What would they say? “Yeah, he really knew how to put the cheese on.”
I’m not going to sit at home and eat popcorn.
Ive never met a popcorn ball I didnt like.
That film ‘Memento’ creeped me out. I was looking over my back through the whole thing. I get more creeped out than scared and spill popcorn all over the place.
