Shane Black's quotes

  • I'd like to be the sort of raconteur who rattles off quips and bon mots in the moment, but I'm not going to hit you with the dazzler. Most people just say nothing all of the time.
  • Dialogue can be fun but most people don't study it.
  • I struggled with that for quite a while -- trying to see like a child again, and realizing why I'd started in the movies. To get that excitement back, and lose some of the more unsavory lessons I'd been forced to swallow.
  • I'm not in the market any more to crash helicopters or blow up the Washington Monument. I'm certainly content to stick at -- if not the $15-million level -- then certainly below the level of blockbuster.
  • To this day I have a profound mistrust of the word processor. I have to type it or write it first, screen it and only then enter it for posterity onto the word processor.
  • I read The Hardy Boys and The Three Investigators, the suspense fiction intended for kids, but my childhood heroes tended to be in the adult section of the library.
  • [When asked what the most extravagant thing he spent his earnings on] A book collection and rare magazines like "Black Mask", where Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett published stories, and "Weird Tales", with pieces by H.P. Lovecraft.
  • Mel Gibson would have to go to a kibbutz for three years to be allowed back into Hollywood.
