Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

We’re still in the lessons learned mood. When it comes to movies there are two important aspects: entertainment and food for thought. The best movies have a combination of both and of course a good story. A movie gives you food for thought because of its story (remember my latest blog tell your stories) and strong dialogue.

Today I was scrolling through my old Hollywood movie quotes memory. When you read some movie dialogue transcripts, you realise that you don’t always have to watch the movie to relate to the situation or put it in perspective. Some quotes may lead to random thoughts like: “that’s hilarious” or “let me use that line as an inspirational quote”. And ofcourse there are some movie quotes that are so good, that you feel the urge to say them out loud...
