some quotes....

I just want to tell you, I'm the one who was supposed to take care of everything. I'm the one who was supposed to make everything okay for everybody. It just didn't work out like that. And I left. I left you... And now, I'm an old broken down piece of meat... and I'm alone. And I deserve to be all alone. I just don't want you to hate me.

Năm cuối cùng của thập niên 2000 sắp trôi qua có khác, các báo thi nhau đưa ra danh sách "Top Movies of the 2000s". Giờ đến lượt tờ The Times của Anh đưa ra cái danh sách "The 100 Best Movies of the Noughties", nghe châm biếm đúng kiểu Anh. Danh sách này khá lạ lẫm và không hợp ý tôi lắm, nhưng dù sao nó cũng đáng để tham khảo.
