Oh, and to top if off with another High Fidelity quote for giggles:
Rob: John Dillinger was killed behind that theater in a hale of FBI gunfire. And do you know who tipped them off? His
f@!&ing girlfriend. All he wanted to do was go to the movies.
Top Ten Movies of All Time by Kristin (Followed by my favorite lines from those movies--boy these were hard to pick)...
10. Back to the Future (1989, Michael J. Fox)
Younger Dr. Emmett Brown: [running out of the room] 1.21 gigawatts? 1.21 gigawatts? Great Scott!
Marty McFly: [following] What-what the hell is a gigawatt?
9. Matrix (1999, Keanu Reeves)
Oracle: You're cuter than I thought. I can see why she likes you.
Oracle: Not too bright, though.
8. The Usual Suspects (1995, Kevin Spacey, Benicio Del Toro)
Verbal: The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist. And like that, poof. He's gone.
7. Moulin Rouge (2001, Nicole Kidman, Ewan McGregor)
The Duke: You expect me to believe that scantily clad, in the arms of another man, in the middle of the night, inside an elephant you were rehearsing?
6. V for Vendetta (2005, Natalie Portman, Hugo Weaving)
Evey Hammond: Who are you?
V: Who? Who is but the form following the function of what and what I am is a man in a mask.
Evey Hammond: Well I can see that.
V: Of course you can. I'm not questioning your powers of observation I'm merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man who he is.
5. The Shawshank Redemption (1994, Tim Robbins, Morgan Freeman)
Andy Dufresne: Get busy living, or get busy dying.
4.Titanic (1997, Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet)
Jack: Rose, you're no picnic, all right? You're a spoiled little brat, even, but under that, you're the most amazingly, astounding, wonderful girl, woman that I've ever known...
3. Braveheart (1995, Mel Gibson)
Murron: You're going to teach me to read, then?
William Wallace: Aye, if you'd like.
William Wallace: In what language?
Murron: Ah, you're showing off now.
William Wallace: That's right. Are you impressed yet?
Murron: No. Why? Should I be?
William Wallace: Oui. Parce que chaque jour j'ai pensé à toi.
[Yes. Because every single day I thought about you]
Murron: [hesitates, impressed despite herself, then smiles] Do that standing on your head and I'll be impressed.
William Wallace: Well, my kilt will fly up, but I'll try.
Okay, okay, I had to pick another...
Malcolm Wallace: Your heart is free. Have the courage to follow it.
2. The Notebook (2004, Rachel McAdams, Ryan Gosling)
Young Allie: Now, say you're a bird.
Young Noah: If you're a bird, I'm a bird.
And the top movie of all time in my opinion is...
1. Pride and Prejudice (2005, Keira Knightly)
Elizabeth Bennet: And those are the words of a gentleman. From the first moment I met you, your arrogance and conceit, your selfish disdain for the feelings of others made me realize that you were the last man in the world I could ever be prevailed upon to marry.
[they look at each other for a long time as though about to kiss]
Mr. Darcy: Forgive me, madam, for taking up so much of your time.
So that's it! All my favorites rolled into a single blog post! There were TONS of good ones that didn't make the cut and I wished I could've picked more quotes from those movies...maybe sometime.
What's on your list?
