Grosse Point Blank: a professional killer goes back his hometown for his high school reunion. Martin Blank (John Cusack) re-acquainting, after a decade, with his former prom date's father :
Mr. Newberry: I visualized you in a haze as one of those slackster, flannel-wearing, coffee-house misanthropes I've been seeing in Newsweek. Marty: No no no, I went the other road. Six figures, doing business with leadpipe cruelty, mercenary sensibility. You know ... sports, sex, no real relationships.
unfortunately for me, although there is no denying that casablanca is a classic, that line, like so many has been so overdone, copied and used in bad taste that I find it hard to appreciate now. But that is just my opinion, Not my intention to ruin it for you.
First of all props to the man who started this thread that Bill Paxton line is classic along with "Whoopi-Fu@&in'-Doo!" that he says earlier in the film.
My favorite line from any movie ever huh?????
That would have to be "I want you to go to your window and stick your head out and yell,"I'm mad as hell and I'm not gonna take this anymore!" from the prophetic film Network.
The character of Howard Beale as played by Peter Finch is the most important film role of all time because he foretold about how our network news channels were pulling further and further away from any real truth in favor of reality-TV in it was made in 1976!
According to Netflix >> Paddy Chayefsky predicted today's rash of trash television and shock-laden news broadcasts. The writer of Marty created network news anchor Howard Beale (Peter Finch), who loses his mind on the air. Unfortunately, his outrageous rants boost the ratings and intrigue cutthroat network executives Faye Dunaway and Robert Duvall. William Holden contrasts their avarice as an old-school TV journalist hopelessly out of step.
What's even more apropos is that Peter Finch won is Best Actor Oscar posthumously because people who speak the truth in the media end up with fates just like that.
There are so many good lines but one I like is from the movie Tombstone, at the end between ringo and doc holiday. Ringo:"well...I didnt think you had it in ya" Doc:"I'm ya huckleberry" Ringo looking scared:" My fights not with you, holiday" Doc" I beg to differ, sir. We started a game we never got to finish. Play for blood remember?" Ringo"I was just fooling about" Doc smiles:"I wasnt"
I also like heaps of lines from the tv series Blackadder, starring Rowan Atkinson this one from the 3rd series with prince george III, (during the revolutionary times) playing his butler.
Prince George III: "Tell me about these oppressed masses, what are they so worked up about?"
Blackadder:" They are worked up sir, because they are so poor, they are forced to have children; simply as to provide a cheap alternative to turkey at christmas. Disease and deprivation stalk our land, like two giant.....stalking things. and the working man is poised to overthrow us!"
"Frankly My Dear, I Do Not Give a Damn." As Rhett walks out the Scarlet in the closing scene of Gone With the Wind. It is so funny because in the book they mention she is 28 and it appears as if half her life is over, which shows the differences in life expectancy then and now. I think this line was very brave to use in the movie as it was censored five thousand dollars to remain true to the line from the book. It is great to see when movies try to remain close to the books on which they are based. By the way, I think Scarlet was so selfish and I never really understood her, but is still one of my favorite movies and books.
In the shawshank redemption, after spending a month in solitary confinement andy say's to red. "You either get busy livin' or get busy dying." When red is alone in his cell and thinks that andy is going to commit suiside "The night drew out like a blade."
"I know what you're thinking. Did he fire six shots or only five? To tell you the truth, in all the commotion, I kinda lost track myself. But seeing as this is a .44 Magnum...the most powerful handgun in the world...and will blow your head clean off, you have to ask yourself a question: Do I feel lucky? Well...do ya , punk?"
Psycho: The name's Francis Soyer, but everybody calls me Psycho. Any of you guys call me Francis, and I'll kill you.
Psycho: You just made the list, buddy. And I don't like nobody touching my stuff. So just keep your meat-hooks off. If I catch any of you guys in my stuff, I'll kill you. Also, I don't like nobody touching me. Now, any of you homos touch me, and I'll kill you.
I'd love to read his Bio, he was great and very unique. I kept up with him and his lifestyle on his lovely Island with his wives and all. He seemed to be quite secretive which I can understand... So thanks for bringing him up...I bet his bio is a great read.
Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin van-guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.
"I am cool"...resivior dogs "Out of my way,Peck!!" Willow "As you wish" Princess Bride "Shut the Fuck up, Donnie" Big Lebowski "Organic Squirrel Gets a Bicycle Helmet" Bedtime Stories "Stop looking at me SWAN!!!" and "Its nudie magazine day!!" Billy Maddison movies are awesome!!!!
OH MY GOD!!!!!! really? Oh George, not the livestock... or "he got all loved up and turned into a ..horny toad.." "Damn, Im in a tight spot." I thought it was just me..where I live, cows are abundant, and I frequently say..Oh George, not the livestock....and my kids hate it. I want to buy the soundtrack..soggy bottom boys..but I want the Siren Song, whatever its called...most of all.
The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children.
And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.
One of mine is the line by Azareal played by Jason Lee in the movie, Dogma, where who says, "I know how to make a HOLY bartender!" and then he shot up the bartender with holes. Holy bartender - brilliant.
What is your favorite movie of all time?Mine would have to be Transformers: The Movie from 1986. I've watched it at least 100 times and could watch it a thousand more times. I'm almost to the point where I could recite...
Among my least favorite films are SHINING THROUGH and I AM SAM.My least favorite movie experiences usually involve somebody talking. What's that Darren Aronofsky film with the tree? I forget, but I do remember two old...
