Top Ten Movie Quotes
Advantages: Brought back happy memories
Here's my list of top 10 quotes from the movies. Some of them are from my personal favourite films, some I've included because they're so outrageously famous no list should be complete without them.
Drum roll please!
10. "Play it Sam. Play 'As Time Goes By'". The original quote from Casablanca. Surely one of the most misquoted quotes from any film. Not to be confused with the "Play it again Sam" Woody Allen film from 1972.
9. "Nobody puts Baby in the corner" ~ Dirty Dancing (1987). Were people actually paid to write babble like that? A film you either love or hate. Personally thought it one of the worst films of the '80's but the lead song was catchy.
8 "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn!" ~ Gone With The Wind (1939). This is a film I've never even seen, and probably never will, but worthy of this list anyhow.
7. "Here's Johnny!"~ The Shining (1980). Just picture if you will Jack Nicholson's face poking through the bathroom door in the Overlook Hotel. To me, this is one of the single most memorable images of a film I have. One of the best films of it's genre, and also one of Jack's best performances.
6. "You're goddamn right I did!" ~ A Few Good Men (1992). Another fine Jack moment, this time when under oath at the military trial.
5. "You talkin' to me? You talkin' to me? You talkin' to me? Then who the hell else are you talking... you talking to me? Well I'm the only one here." ~ Taxi Driver (1976). De Niro talking to a mirror, back in the day when he made first class films.
4. "Free at last, free at last!" ~ Carlito's Way (1993). One of my favourite Pacino films.
3. "You were only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!" ~ The Italian Job (1969). This had both Michael Caine and Benny Hill, what more could you want?. Ignore the lame copy from 2003.
2. "Attica, Attica, Attica!" ~ Dog Day Afternoon (1975). Another favourite Pacino film, this time when he's getting the crowds whipped up over police brutality.
1 "You're gonna need a bigger boat!" ~ Jaws (1975). And didn't they just! Still a cracking film, even though the shark itself looks risible now. The scene on the creaky boat with Robert Shaw recounting his WWII experience at sea to Roy Scheider and Richard Dreyfuss is a classic. Thanks to Spielberg, I keep my eyes peeled even at Brighton.
Summary: Just can't believe how time flies!
