comment Quote about two types of people: “poor people and gangsters”
I think it's a quote because it is spoken, not sung or rapped. But I don't know for sure.

comment Special sunglasses that enable you to see aliens
@AE I don't think the movie suggested the aliens made the glasses-- instead, IIRC, the glasses were made by human rebels. So stop dissing "They Live"! ;)

comment Why are zoom shots rarely used?
This makes sense to me. Zooming usually feels "intense" to the viewer -- it usually sends the message "this shot is very important." Too much use of zoom could be overwhelming to the viewer.

comment Horror movie that takes place at beach resort
@Walt, yes, the OP probably has a different movie in mind, but there are some similarities, and OP might be misremembering the beach part, so thought I'd put Angel Heart out there.

comment Did the Ewoks eat the stormtroopers?
+1 Also note that ROTJ orginally had Wookies in the place eventually filled by Ewoks. The site below says Lucas changed because Ewok-vs-Stormtrooper would be more allegorical of Vietnam War then Wookie-vs-Stormtrooper. virginmedia.com/movies/features/top-ten-jedi-facts.php?page=2
