Embrace the bitter and post your own reviews!

They said that! Favorite movie quotes (We Need You, Bitterites!)


I got to the library to catch up on some work when I saw they had the poster for The American Film Institute's top 101 Film Quotes. This list came out a few years ago and I decided to list some of them here. However, we're curious to know what quotes are YOUR favorites! Great lines sometimes come from lesser known or even crap movies("I'm here for two things, to chew gum and kick ass, and I'm all out of bubble gum"-Nada, from They Live, or at least that's how I remember it), and they stay with us forever. Anyways, here are the top 10, so let's see what you got!

#1 – “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.” ~Rhett Butler, Gone with the Wind (1939)

#2 – “I’m going to make him an offer he can’t refuse.” ~Vito Corleone, The Godfather (1972)

#3 – “You don’t understand! I could’ve had class. I could’ve been a contender. I could’ve been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am.” ~Terry Malloy, On the Waterfront (1954)

#4 – “Toto, I’ve (got) a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.” ~Dorothy Gale, The Wizard of Oz (1939)

#5 – “Here’s looking at you, kid.” ~Rick Blaine, Casablanca (1942)

#6 – “Go ahead, make my day.” ~Harry Callahan, Sudden Impact (1983)

#7 – “All right, Mr. DeMille, I’m ready for my close-up.” ~Norma Desmond, Sunset Boulevard (1950)

#8 – “May the Force be with you.” ~Han Solo, Star Wars (1977)

#9 – “Fasten your seatbelts. It’s going to be a bumpy night.” ~Margo Channing, All About Eve (1950)

#10 – “You talkin’ to me?” ~Travis Bickle, Taxi Driver (1976)

a couple of bummers from Batmans:

'is it the car then? chicks dig cars...' Val Kilmer, Batman for ever

'Every body chill!" Arnold Schwarzenegger, Batman and Robin

and others at this instance:

'Dont call me babe!' Pam Anderson, Barb Wire

' I know kung fu. ' Neo, Matrix

' The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows.' Rocky, Rocky Balboa

'it ain't how hard you hit; it's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done. ' Rocky, Rocky Balboa

the last but not the least: (this one I had to search for the full text)
'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. ' V, V for Vendetta.

Great quote. I don't know when you can apply it in the real world, but cool, nonetheless.

"The State of Vermont doesn't have to apologize for it's cheese" - Senator Ortolan Finistirre, Thank You For Smoking

one more from TYFS,
'I didn't have to. I proved that you're wrong, and if you're wrong I'm right. '
everytime when I think of the line I wish I had father who'd tell me that.

JAS on Mon, 08/31/2009 - 10:33pm

I can't believe I missed that V for Vendetta one! Good catch!

I'm in agreement with the batman one's being a disappointment, but it's disappointing those movies were even made.

However, you missed one, too.

"The Bat-signal is not a beeper." Val-Kilmer, Batman forever

That one above stung like hell when I heard it.
