Day 24 – Quote you use most often
Well, I don’t use it too often, but I guess more often than others: “Are you not entertained? Is this not why you are here?”
I find that I use a lot of quotes from Gladiator a lot, there so many memorable ones as well as one-liners from that movie! In fact, there should be a meme for “Movies with the most memorable quotes”, and that one ought to be on the list. Obviously the ones uttered by Maximus are the most popular (i.e. “What we do in life… echoes in eternity” and the one on this list), but I LOVE this one by Senator Gracchus, not so much the quote itself, though it’s a good one indeed, but more about of the way Derek Jacobi delivered it. It was just… sublime.
- Batman Begins
Alfred Pennyworth: Why do we fall sir? So we might learn to pick ourselves up.
Judah Ben-Hur: Almost at the moment He died, I heard Him say, “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.”
Esther: Even then.
Judah Ben-Hur: Even then. And I felt His voice take the sword out of my hand.
- Multiplicity (one of my comedy guilty pleasure!)
Doug Kinney – clone #3, referring to clone #4: You know how when you make a copy of a copy, it’s not as sharp as… well… the original.
- Mansfield Park (one of my favorite period dramas!)
Edmund Bertram [when asked whether he loved Fannie Price]: There are as many forms of love as there are moments in time.
- Indiana Jones & The Last Crusade
Professor Henry Jones: I suddenly remembered my Charlemagne. Let my armies be the rocks and the trees and the birds in the sky…
Since it was Sean Connery’s 80th birthday yesterday, I thought it’s fitting to include this awesome scene from that movie in his honor!
Day 25 – A movie you plan on watching (old or new)
A few other ones in my Netflix queue are: The Beat that My Heart Skipped, An Education, Spirited Away (another suggestion from the comments section), V for Vendetta (a great thriller my husband and I want to watch again), and West Side Story (a classic I’m ashamed I haven’t watched. So thanks Andrew for the inspiring me to finally rent it because of this meme post!).
Well, let’s hear your favorite movie quote(s). I’m sure everyone has at least one.
