Here Comes The Noise

In a few films, you may have noticed that some books and poems are referenced, in addition to general literature, such as at the end of the Dark Knight Rises when, at the funeral, we are treated to an installment of “Hard Times.” In this frivilous post, yet again, we seek to catalogue and archive some movie references, in a single place, for those film fans that grew curious:

    The Matrix

Simulcra and Simulation, Jean Baudrillard (1981)


Fundamentals of Chess (1885): “the only way to get smarter is by playing a smarter opponent”
Julius Ceasar 75BC: “The greatest enemy will hide in the last place you would ever look.
Niccolo Machiavelli: “There is no avoiding war; it can only be postponed to the advantage of others.”
Etiquette of the banker 1775 “the first rule of business, protect your investment”

    Law Abiding Citizen

Principles of War, by Carl von Clausewitz (1812)

    Shawshank Redemption (1994)

Based on the book by Stephen King, dubbed ‘The Woman in the Room’ in a book called “Different Seasons” which also features “The Body” (Stand By Me), 1986, and 1998 film, Apt Pupil. His other films include Dreamcatcher (2003) and The Shining.
His posters are Rita Hayworth [who they watch in, Gilda (1946).], Raquel Welch,
it is similar to the Alexandre Dumas père novel, “The Count of Monte Cristo”
Frank Darabont then produced The Green Mile (1999)

    The Dark Knight Rises

A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens

    Apocalypse Now

The Golden Bough: A Study in Magic and Religion, James Frazer
From Ritual to Romance by Jessie Weston

Finally, we have been wondering what the most universally pleasing song is,
and we are considering the following
Stand By Me, Ben E King
Smells Like Teen Spirit, Nirvana
I Will Always Love You, Whitney Houston
Stairway To Heaven
Fast Cars, Tracy Chapman
Someone Like You, Adele
Bittersweet Symphony, The Verve
The Twist, Chubby Checker.
Un-Break My Heart, Toni Braxton
