Movies are my thing too and I do a lot of them, and a lot more. Some of my favourite characters in movies include, wait a minute am a movie critique so I will go straight to the highlights of all the movies I have watched.
The Dark Knight is the best movie of all time and so is Heath Ledger the best villain of all time. In this amazing movie Heath Ledger has a lot of memorable lines but these three stand out:
I believe whatever doesn’t kill you simply makes you stranger
Why so serious?
Nobody panics when things go according to the plan, even if the plan is horrifying……introduce a little anarchy, upset the established order and everything becomes chaos.
And so I say God rest his soul in eternal peace. Steve Carell in the comedy, Dinner for schmucks quotes John Lennon who wrote: you may say am a dreamer but am not the only one. And the use of this line in the movie gives it so much sense than I ever imagined it possessed. Steve Carell steals the sh
ow again when he says at the dinner,” Vincent van Gool everyone told him “you only have one year, you cannot be a great artist”, you know what he said, “I cant hear you”, Vincent van Gool was a dreamer”
In the animation Legend of the Guardians, Eglatine says “Da says our dreams are who we are” and Da,their father, says, “Just because you can’t see something doesn’t mean that it isn’t real…”
In another of Zack Snyder’s classics, 300. in reply to Stelios dying comment, “it is an honour to die by your side” Gerald Butler says “it is an honour to have lived at yours.”
Another of my favourite movie lines is from Fired up and is used by both Eric Christian Olsen and Nicholas D’Agosto although the credit for this line goes to the latter it is the formers usage of it at the cheerleading camp final competition in a bid to convince Sarah Roemer and the rest of the team to do the impossible move; fountain of troy that makes it worth its salt. He says, “you gotta risk it to get the biscuit”
In the adaption of Erin Gruwell’s freedom writers, Hillary Swank says, “ …by the time you are defending a kid in court the battle is already lost. I think the real fighting should happen here, in the classroom”. In the same movie Miep Gies, who hid Anna frank (Author of the Diary of Anna Frank) when called a hero says, “ oh no no, young man no, I am not a hero, I did what I had to do because it was the right thing to do, that’s all. We are ordinary people, but even an ordinary…. Teenager can within their own ways turn on a small light in a dark room.” In the same movie, Erin Gruwell’s Dad tells her, “what you have done with those kids, I don’t even have words for it but one thing is for sure you are an amazing teacher…… and I envy that, and I admire you and how many father’s have to say that to their daughter’s and really mean it.”
In a 2007 drama classic, August Rush, Jonathan Rhys Meyers tells Freddie Highmore, “You never quit on your music no matter what happen because any time something bad happens to you it’s the one place you can escape to and just psst let it go.”
I’m bound to award the greatest line of all movies to the 2003 spy thriller film the Recruit when Al Pacino tells Colin Farrel, “our failures are known, our victories are not”
