“But when fall comes, kicking summer out on its treacherous ass as it always does one day sometime after the midpoint of September, it stays awhile like an old friend that you have missed. It settles in the way an old friend will settle into your favorite chair and take out his pipe and light it and then fill the afternoon with stories of places he has been and things he has done since last he saw you.”
― Stephen King,
I love autumn. I love it so much. The weather gets finally chillier and the never-ending hot dry days are over. Gentle cold breeze arrives. Colourful leaves are falling down and world finally gets more bright and merry. The time of drinking hot cocoa or tea while listening to some slow autumn-y music or watching movies has finally arrived. And in this article I’m going to show you the greatest fall movies of all time you should certainly watch, during the long cold evenings. Whether with friends or alone, these movies will certainly be enjoyed by you, I promise.
The true story of Homer Hickam, a coal miner’s son who was inspired by the first Sputnik launch to take up rocketry against his father’s wishes.
,,Dad, I may not be the best, but I come to believe that I got it in me to be somebody in this world. And it’s not because I’m so different from you either, it’s because I’m the same. I mean, I can be just as hard-headed, and just as tough. I only hope I can be as good a man as you. Sure, Wernher von Braun is a great scientist? but he isn’t my hero.”
When Harry Met Sally
Harry and Sally have known each other for years, and are very good friends, but they fear sex would ruin the friendship.
,,You see? That is just like you, Harry. You say things like that, and you make it impossible for me to hate you.”
,,I love that you get cold when it’s 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you’re looking at me like I’m nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it’s not because I’m lonely, and it’s not because it’s New Year’s Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.“
The extracurricular king of Rushmore preparatory school is put on academic probation.
,,You guys have it real easy. I never had it like this where I grew up. But I send my kids here because the fact is you go to one of the best schools in the country: Rushmore. Now, for some of you it doesn’t matter. You were born rich and you’re going to stay rich. But here’s my advice to the rest of you: Take dead aim on the rich boys. Get them in the crosshairs and take them down. Just remember, they can buy anything but they can’t buy backbone. Don’t let them forget it. Thank you.”
A boy and a girl from different backgrounds fall in love regardless of their upbringing – and then tragedy strikes.
,,Love means never having to say you’re sorry.”
,,What the hell makes you so smart?” I asked. “I wouldn’t go for coffee with you, ” she answered. “Listen — I wouldn’t ask you.” “That, “she replied “is what makes you stupid.”
,,And then I did what I had never done in his presence, much less in his arms. I cried.”
,,The pain of not knowing what to do was exceeded only by that of knowing what I had done.”
Planes, Trains & Automobiles
A man must struggle to travel home for Thanksgiving with an obnoxious slob of a shower curtain ring salesman as his only companion.
,,You wanna hurt me? Go right ahead if it makes you feel any better. I’m an easy target. Yeah, you’re right, I talk too much. I also listen too much. I could be a cold-hearted cynic like you… but I don’t like to hurt people’s feelings. Well, you think what you want about me; I’m not changing. I like… I like me. My wife likes me. My customers like me. Because I’m the real article. What you see is what you get.”

St Elmo’s Fire
A group of friends, just out of college, struggle with adulthood.
,,Kirby: It’s true love, my friend.
Kevin: Love, love, you know what love is? Love is an illusion created by lawyer types like yourself to perpetuate another illusion called marriage to create the reality of divorce and then the illusionary need for divorce lawyers.”
,,Kirby: I always thought we’d be friends forever.
Kevin: Yeah, well forever got a lot shorter all of a sudden.”
You’ve Got Mail
Two business rivals who despise each other in real life unwittingly fall in love over the Internet.
,,The odd thing about this form of communication is that you’re more likely to talk about nothing than something. But I just want to say that all this nothing has meant more to me than so many somethings.”
,,Sometimes I wonder about my life. I lead a small life – well, valuable, but small – and sometimes I wonder, do I do it because I like it, or because I haven’t been brave? So much of what I see reminds me of something I read in a book, when shouldn’t it be the other way around? I don’t really want an answer. I just want to send this cosmic question out into the void. So good night, dear void.”
