    That really is from a movie. Seriously, I just can't think of what it is. I remember it being a particularly poor movie too.

    i'm sure it's a good one.



    i was watching "dreamcatchers" (don't ask) and morgan freeman uttered the line, that if it exists in a movie, automatically makes the movie a piece of crap.



    i think it's janeane garfolo's theory,



    "i'm gettin' too old for this shit"



    when someone says this in a movie you should be able to get your $9.50 back.

    From `The Prophecy'



    "Did you ever notice how in the Bible when God needed to punish someone .. make an example, or whenever God needed a killing .. he sent an angel. Have you ever wondered what a creature like that must be like? Your whole existence praising your God but always with one wing dipped in blood. Would you ever really want to see an angel?"



    Archangel Gabriel:

    "I'm an angel. I kill firstborns while their mammas watch. I turn cities into salt. I even when I feel like it, ripe the soul out from little girls and from now to kingdom come the only thing you can count on in your existence is never understanding why."



    Gabriel:

    "I'll not step aside .. I will not allow any .. talking monkey to take my place. I'll burn down heaven to stop it."



    Lucifer:

    "Little Tommy Dagit, how I loved listening to your sweet prayers every night. Then you'd jump in your bed. So afraid I was under there. And I Was!!!"



    Gabriel:

    This war is mine!

    Lucifer:

    Your war is arrogance. That makes it evil. And that's mine.





    Brilliant movie

    This is a thread about great lines from films. Not a thread about abortion, evolution, George Bush or the unequal treatment of men and women. Not a lot of scope for Scottbashing, one would think, and believe you me I thrive on Scottbashing; hey, what's not to bash.



    In context.



    Someone stands up and say something demonstrably stupid, someone's well within their rights to demonstrate it.



    But is it truly impossible not have a thread that degenerates into "Oh so you're a fukcing mind reader now?" One would have thought that this thread could have been it. We could be arguing over films, if we have to argue, but no, instead we've got "Eat shit and die asshole."



    You haven't contributed a single line from a single film. I read fuzzy, stupid, adolescent nonsense on this board all the time. I'm responsible for some it. I don't feel compelled to point it out every time I read it because that's not the point; people post here for a laugh and they come back to see what people thought of their posts. It's not school, it's a bit of fun. If someone's favourite film is Aliens, so what? Really, who cares?



    So, you haven't contributed a single line from a single film. Let's go through your posts. I'd like to make you understand how you got the response you have.



    Your first was to point out that Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas was a book first and to say that all these people's favourite lines of movie dialogue were for the most part "lame."



    I can't help noticing that Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas was indeed made into a film, as was The Third Man, The Shawshank Redemption, Shindler's List, The Wizard of Oz and Goldfinger, that Aquafire didn't specify any particular rules, and that instead of shaking your head and posting some dialogue you actually like, you chose to make another poster feel like a twat and ramp up the tension for no good reason.



    Your second was to point out that the only "great" film quoted was Citizen Kane, and this from a list of films with Casablanca, Apocalypse Now, La Grande Illusion, The Third Man, Once Upon a Time in the West, Cool Hand Luke and Taxi Driver.



    Your third was to say that "Aliens" wasn't a Great Movie and that "Game over!" was a lame quote. With two of these:



    I agree. Aliens isn't a Great Movie. But it is a great movie, as in "that movie was great. Dude, if you're going to disagree with someone, disagree with manners. And if you're not going to, then don't complain when people get pissed off with you.



    I take it you like films. I like films. If I could remember any great dialogue from Tarkovsky's 'Andre Rubeilev" or "La Grande Bouffe" or "Atalante" or "The Green Ray" I would. But I can't. Please post yours. I can remember great lines from Sergio Leone's westerns like The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, because those films have lots of great lines in them. And if I disagreed with your taste in films I'd have shaken my head, thought "Scott's a twat" and scrolled down a bit.



    You've derailed the thread totally unncessesarily. This thread didn't need this essay. Every time you post it's like a calculated attempt to make things tense.



    All the ugliness in this thread is your fault. Some posters could better have just ignored you, alright, but really, sometimes they shouldn't have to.

    I'm going to have to agree with scott. there are good moives without good quotes. Just because the movie was good doesn't mean anything about the quotes. And one liners seem a bit to ephemeral to hold any context later one, and hence aren't great quotes.



    My favorite is the "You've gotta ask yourself one question" dialogue from Dirty Harry.

    I'm going to have to disagree with this thought. Sometimes a one liner captures more than an essay.



    "Something I never could stomach about Santa Carla, all the damn vampires."



    That's from THE LOST BOYS. A pretty terrible movie, but that line saves it from utter trash.
