Movie"The Wicker Tree"

Pull Quote: "You'll see faces, performances, and scenes you'll never see in any other movie."

Author: Damon Wise, EmpireOnline.com

Original Quote, in Context: "Like 'Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes,' it could never hope to match the ending of the original, but there's something off-the-wall and bespoke about all three of Hardy's films that really appeals to me. You'll see faces, performances and scenes that you'll never see in any other movie (usually for good reason). But perhaps it's a good thing that he's never made more than those three."

Why It's WeirdBecause it's really not a compliment. As the context makes clear, Wise acknowledges that there's probably a good reason why you don't see these faces, performances, and scenes in other movies (on Twitter, Wise said he was "baffled" by the pull quote). On a more practical level: do you ever see performances or scenes from one movie in any other movie? Outside of sequels that recycle plots, characters, or settings, every movie features new performances and scenes. You'll never see faces, performances, and scenes like the ones in "Gigli" anywhere else -- but that's not a selling point.  

Truly, you'll never see another pull quote like this on any other DVD.

This has been another installment of Weird Pull Quote Theater!
