    Movie quotes - feel free to contribute...

    Discussion in 'Entertainment' started by Olaf Blunk, Sep 27, 2015.

    Here are some movie quotes, that I still remembered when the movies were long gone:

    "Media is like the weather, only that it´s man-made weather."

    (Natural Born Killers)


    "You know why movies are still better?
    The music comes up, there's credits, and you always know when it's over."

    (Strange Days)


    "Superman stands alone. Superman didn`t become Superman.
    Superman was born Superman."

    (Kill Bill: Vol. 2)

    Really looking forward for your favourite quotes...

    I'll play...

    "The things you own end up owning you."
    (Fight Club)

    “Some men aren’t looking for anything logical like money. They can’t be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.”
    (The Dark Knight)

    And the king of all one-liners:

    "Striker: Surely you can't be serious."
    "Rumack I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
    (Airplane !)

    "I like to remember things my own way."
    "What do you mean by that?"
    "How I remembered them. Not necessarily the way they happened."

    (Lost Highway)


    "You'll never understand, you and me, we're not even the same species.
    I used to be you, then I evolved.
    From where you're standing, you're a man.
    From where I'm standing, you're an ape."

    (Natural Born Killers)


    "Whether or not he is a sinner, I do not know. All I know is this: once I was blind and now I can see."
    John IX, 24-26 / The New English Bible

    I really liked the "stir the soup" metaphor in Finding Forrester.

    "Whoa ..."

    Anything with Keanu Reeves in. Which, lets face it, he doesn't actually have to say anything ... he can just stand there and let me look at him ...

    Talking of "Point Break": "Young, dumb and full of cum." is really an outstanding summary of the teenage years...

    "Racing is life. Everything before or after it is just... waiting." Steve McQueen in Le Mans.

    And from Point Break, the best one in my humble opinion, Patrick Swayze looking at his watch seconds before a heist: "Tick tock, little hand says it is time to rock and roll."

    I always have Arnie quotes stuck in my head, for example:

    "Here's your Subzero! Now....plain zero!"

    The Running Man

    Or:

    "It's as satisfying to me as, uh, coming is, you know? As, ah, having sex with a woman and coming. And so can you believe how much I am in heaven? I am like, uh, getting the feeling of coming in a gym, I'm getting the feeling of coming at home, I'm getting the feeling of coming backstage when I pump up, when I pose in front of 5,000 people, I get the same feeling, so I am coming day and night. I mean, it's terrific. Right? So you know, I am in heaven."

    Pumping Iron

    Charles Foster Kane: You're right, I did lose a million dollars last year. I expect to lose a million dollars this year. I expect to lose a million dollars *next* year. You know, Mr. Thatcher, at the rate of a million dollars a year, I'll have to close this place in... 60 years.

    The movie Ed Wood is a motherlode of great quotes. For instance:

    "Dolores, I have five days to complete this picture. Don't get goofy on me."

    "This is the most uncomfortable coffin I've ever been in. Your selection is quite shoddy. You are wasting my time!"

    "Listen. Hit the bars. Work some parties and get me some transvestites. I need transvestites!"

    There was me, that is Alex, and my three droogs, that is Pete, Georgie, and Dim, and we sat in the Korova Milkbar trying to make up our rassoodocks what to do with the evening...

    Still one of the most unbelievable experiences I've encountered with the realm of movies seeing the opening of A Clockwork Orange for the first time.
