Top 10 Movie Quotes

When we watch movies, we are usually very critical with the lines uttered by the characters. It is vital that the script speaks of the emotions and the theme the movie wishes to carry to its audience. Over the years, there were a lot of memorable lines from our favorite movies and has been a subject of parodies and "remakes." Let us go back to the famous movie lines that marked as the years go by. Here is my list of the Top 10 Movie Quotes.






10. "Not my daughter, you bitch!" - Molly Weasley (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, 2011)
- one of the most anticipated scene in the second part of the last installment of the series is how they would translate the words written in the pages of JK Rowling's book during the battle of Hogwarts. This scene showed how strong Molly's character is as she battles Bellatrix Lestrange. The effect of these words are so dramatic especially in a battle scene.




9. "ET, phone home" - ET (E.T., 1982)
- when ET was stranded in our planet, he was first taken care of 3 children. During his stay, he was able to learn a few things about us even our language, and eventually made this dialogue true to his need to go home. And yes, Drew Barrymore is very cute in this movie.



8. "I see dead people" - Cole Sear (The Sixth Sense, 1999)
- Creepiest line ever made. One of the strength of this is that, it came from a child and children can sometime be creepy. Haley Joel Osment was very effective in setting the mood with this as he confess to Bruce Willis the source of his problem.


7. "Hasta la Vista, baby" - The Terminator (Terminator 2, 1991)
- Arnie never gets old with this one. It was popular back in the 90s and almost everyone is saying this. I can still remember when Filipino action movies would say this line every time they would kill the bad guy, but nobody can do it better than Arnie himself.


6. "I'm the king of the world!" - Jack Dawson (Titanic, 1998)
- watching Titanic for the 3rd time after 5 years would made you realize that the script for this film is very cheesy, yet, this is the formula that worked for the film making it the All Time Top Grossing movie until Avatar took its place. This line though showed how hopeful Jack's character is as his dreams of going back home is finally realized aboard the unsinkable ship.



5. "My precious" - Gollum (Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, 2003)
- Although Gollum said this line in the first installment, it is in The Towers that he was formally introduced as a character. When Gollum had the ring, this is his immortal words.



4. "There's no place like home" - Dorothy (Wizard of Oz, 1939)
- Yup, indeed, there is no place like home. The film has a list of really great lines and I picked up one of the most beautiful line. When Dorothy woke up from her dream of OZ, she sees familiar faces and finally before the end credits roll, she uttered one of the most popular lines from the film.



3. "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn" - Rhett Butler (Gone with the Wind, 1939)
- This could be one of the most hurtful lines ever said in the big screen. This scene was the turning point of the 3 hour drama of Scarlet and Rhett's love story as Rhett finally gives up on the woman he loves. Running to the door, Rhett finally slams this line against Scarlet's face and walks away.




2. "Bond. James Bond" - James Bond (Dr. No, 1962)
- The line that made James Bond a household name. This line has been made to every Bond movie since 1962, making it a total of 23 movies. Sean Connery was the first among all the actors who portrayed Bond, and yes, it one of the best way to introduce yourself.



1. "No, I am your father" - Darth Vader (Empire Strikes Back, 1980)
- Looking back as a kid, watching the Empire Strikes Back unfold its story, this turning point of the film is the highlight of all the 6 Star Wars movie ever made. The shock in Luke Skywalker when Darth Vader, their nemesis, told him the truth is priceless, and so are the viewers. Who would have thought that this would be outcome of the story. It must be very hard for fans not to talk about so as not to spoil the film to other moviegoers. But then, this line tops this list because of the timing of how this was delivered in the film.

  5. I'm a film buff, and except for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 (still going to buy the DVD!), watched all the films, you quoted!

    Darth Vader quote is what we quote mostly within the family and friend's circle because it's simply a classic, and imitating Darth Vader's voice too amusing - at least for us! lol

    "There are many things my father taught me here in this room. He taught me: keep your friends close, but your enemies closer."
