Attack Of The 50ft Cheerleader review

Banana Rating: 3 out of 5

Why do film makers make films? It’s an inter­est­ing ques­tion. And what bet­ter way to answer that, than with quotes from some of the world’s best directors.

Martin Scorsese

Not­able films: Good­fel­las, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull

"Movies touch our hearts and awaken our vis­ion, and change the way we see things. They take us to other places, they open doors and minds. Movies are the memor­ies of our life­time, we need to keep them alive."

David Lynch

Not­able films: Wild at Heart, Eraser­head, Blue Vel­vet

"I like to make films because I like to go into another world. I like to get lost in another world. And film to me is a magical medium that makes you dream…allows you to dream in the dark. It’s just a fant­astic thing, to get lost inside the world of film."

Steven Spielberg

Not­able films: Jaws, Sav­ing Private Ryan, Schindler’s List

"I dream for a liv­ing. Once a month the sky falls on my head, I come to, and I see another movie I want to make. Some­times I think I’ve got ball bear­ings for brains; these ideas are slip­ping and slid­ing across each other all the time. My prob­lem is that my ima­gin­a­tion won’t turn off. I wake up so excited I can’t eat break­fast. I’ve never run out of energy. It’s not like OPEC oil; I don’t worry about a premium going on my energy. It’s just always been there."

David Cronenberg

Not­able films: Vide­o­drome, The Fly, Dead Ringers

"As film­maker, I ask ques­tions but don’t have answers. Movie­mak­ing is a philo­soph­ical explor­a­tion. I invite the audi­ence to come on the jour­ney and dis­cover what they think and feel. I have aspir­a­tions that the movie should trig­ger off a lot of com­plex responses."

Werner Herzog

Not­able films: Aguirre: The Wrath of God, Signs of Life

"It is not only my dreams, my belief is that all these dreams are yours as well. The only dis­tinc­tion between me and you is that I can artic­u­late them. And that is what poetry or paint­ing or lit­er­at­ure or film mak­ing is all about… it’s as simple as that. I make films because I have not learned any­thing else and I know I can do it to a cer­tain degree. And it is my duty because this might be the inner chron­icle of what we are. We have to artic­u­late ourselves, oth­er­wise we would be cows in the field. Per­haps I seek cer­tain uto­pian things, space for human honor and respect, land­scapes not yet offen­ded, plan­ets that do not exist yet, dreamed landscapes."

Kevin O’Neill

Not­able films: Dino­croc, Dinoshark, Attack of the 50ft Cheerleader

"I wanted to do a film where a 50ft nude cheer­leader blocks a kar­ate chop with her tits."
