Quotes and dialogues are one of the fundamental parts of any movie. Without it a movie would fail to function as a whole. Equally important are the actors who deliver it and the characters they play. A masterful delivery of a line can be the difference between a blockbuster and a lackluster film. So I decided to pay homage to a few memorable and iconic quotes, beautifully delivered by some very accomplished actors. All of these, save one, are present in AFI’s 100 Years…100 Movie Quotes. So without further ado and in no particular order, here they are:

Out of the few ‘old’ movies I have seen Duck Soup might be my favourite. It is one movie that makes me laugh so hard that tears are inevitable. Recently, I got to watch it again and I enjoyed it almost as much as my first time. I realized that apart from the slapstick humour, there is a lot of intelligent and funny dialogues present throughout the film. Most of which comes from the mouth of Rufus T. Firefly (Groucho Marx). So I decided to create this infograph showing 5 hilarious quotes from the movie. Reading the dialogues is nowhere near as fun as watching the movie so I highly recommend you watch or re-watch the movie. It is now my plan to go ahead and see every single movie the brothers ever made and laugh so hard until something in my body gets injured.
See the Inforgraph:
Before we go on, most of this list comprises of scenes that were just epic in magnitude. I don’t know if that made sense or not. Critics have given negative reviews to some of these movies and I would like to make it clear that I believe the scene in question was great, its not necessary that the film was too. Also, I’m the most hypocritical movie ‘enthusiast’ ever. The number of great movies I have not watched is embarrassing. So, forgive me if this list makes you go “WHAAA–?! HOW COULD YOU NOT ADD THAT ONE!?” And lastly, the scenes chosen are from the last ten years or so with one exception. My words to picture ratio is also way off. So without further ado, here are my selections (not in any order whatsoever):

I don’t like romantic movies. I avoid the genre entirely. They’re boring and have essentially the same storyline. But with my recent viewing of Midnight in Paris it seems I now have some tolerance for the genre. In short, I enjoyed the film immensely.
I’m genuinely excited about this movie. Both are absolutely fantastic actors and the plot seems downright amazing. IMDb offers this:
A killer who works for the mob of the future recognizes one of his targets as his future self.
So we know its going to be about Time Travel and some possibly Die Hard worthy action. Excitement level increasing!
Aha! Infographic made and uploaded. Check. The infographic below illustrates the things I would do in return for watching The Dark Knight Rises ahead of its release date. Its not possible and it’s not gonna happen but a 15 year old can dream, right?
Also, you might’ve noticed that I changed my header, this is in protest of SOPA. The rest of the internet is also following suit as many websites have blacked out today (like Reddit and Wikipedia for instance) in an effort to show their opposition to SOPA. I urge you to do the same. Spread the word, or just sign up for strike. Everything will go back to normal tomorrow.
This is probably the only time I had a post ready beforehand. So I give you another one of my graphs/comics, The Popularity of The AnglerFish.
