Movie dialogue?

Fandango has a fun question for us this week.

What movie, if any, can you practically quote from start to finish?

I have my favourite movies, some I felt I had seen so often I could act them on my own.
I’ve seen The Sound of Music at least 8 times, and remember the words from all of the songs, so does that count?

I’ve also see Arnie in The Terminator at least 25 times, and remember the date The Machine and Reese travel back to, as it’s my birthday, May 12th.

We have a wide selection of DVDs and have watched most of them three or four times.
We used to play a game with film quotes, and whilst I might not remember the entire script, I do remember the story.

Favourites (that we still have) are
The Terminator (and sequels)
Hunger Games
Fast and Furious franchise (not Hobbs and Shaw)
Daybreakers
Underworld franchise
Battle Los Angeles
Olympus/London/Angel has fallen
and in contrast
The Incredibles
Up
Despicable Me
Flushed Away

 

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. I admire your variety of genres.

    • When we bought the boat and had to give most of our things away, we donated over 300 DVDs and videos to the charity shop. We still have over 100 titles, including animations.

    I enjoyed the Terminator series too. Despicable Me is a favorite too!

    You have a rather eclectic taste in movies! 😉

    • Not much is of interest at the moment though Fandango. It’s old stories with new actors, but not necessarily new ideas. That’s one reason we liked Daybreakers, as it was a new tilt on an old story.

    Mine are all comedies: “A Hard Day’s Night,” “Blazing Saddles,” and “Caddyshack.”

    Our family used to do a movie quote game, too. Lots of fun with that. I’d say one movie we could almost quote the whole thing would be Dazed and Confused. 🙂

    Wow!
    This is quite a list, though I would only pick the animated ones from it.

  7. I like the first 2 terminator films, the others haven’t done it for me.
    One film I can quote all the dialogue from is On The Waterfront, the 1950’s Brando film as well as Giant, well James Dean’s lines anyway!

  8. Quite a range of movies! I had a mixed list too, and I’d forgotten about the anime ones. I can probably quote the whole script from “Sing!” for instance. Heh. Great question today! 🙂
