For every person who watches movies, be it in a cinema hall or back home, dialogues do form a crucial part of what we watch on screen. We might not remember what the actor wore, who the director is or maybe even the name of the movie but what we surely remember is those whistle inducing, clap worthy sequences where the actors mouth the cheesiest dialogues that remain etched in our memory!!
So much so that we even manage to drop one of them in the midst of a conversation just for the cultural impact that dialogue has managed to create by itself!! We even tend to share these dialogues as status updates on Facebook, or be it to mock a friend who in the same situation, or put it up as Whatsapp statuses.
Presenting to you a list of some of the best dialogues that remain memorable even after decades and would surely stand the test of time for the years to come!
Don Vito Carleone (Marlon Brando), in The Godfather, has the smoothest mobster lines.
“I’ll make him an offer he can’t refuse..”
is as simple as if he don’t comply, he will die.
After Jack Nicholson played the Joker rivetingly in the 1989 version of Batman; Christopher Nolan’s version spun a whole new level of evil, and Heath Ledger took on the role with eerie precision and spot-on improvisation.
“Why so serious? Let’s put a smile on that face.”
A voice that crawls all over your skin like bugs, Andy Serkis as Gollum in J.R.R Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, makes sure you never look at a ring the same way again!
Just imagine if you ever woke up strapped to an unidentifiable contraption, to static on a TV that morphs into the Jigsaws face? What would run through your mind?
“I want to play a game,”
he says. Your heart stops.
The Social Network was full of witty one-liners from Jesse Heisenberg, playing Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg. This one’s as cocky as his business card (I’m CEO, B***h) –
“If you guys were the inventors of Facebook, you’d have invented Facebook.”
Mr. White tells Mr. Blonde,
“You shoot me in a dream, you better wake up and apologise,”
which is a Mohammed Ali quote that originally goes, “If you even dream of beating me you’d better wake up and apologize.”
Star Wars nerds aside, this two liner epic dialogue have come light years ahead! “May the force be with you,” is just cult status proud, whilst what can we say about Darth Vader’s
“Luke I am your father,”
other than breath heavily into our palms with delight!
Only a Al Pacino possessed Ray Montano, can deliver an explosively climactic scene in one of the biggest gangster films.
“Say hello to my little friend,”
he said, before brandishing a machine gun and blowing down a door to smithereens.
Many a meme have sprung from this epic scene, but nothing like the moment itself, and Gerard Butler himself. No guesses here,
“This is Sparta!”
“The name’s Bond, James Bond.”
Need we say more?
Russell Crowe apparently hated the scripted line that would be the most quoted from the film Gladiator. The Guardian even says he came up with an alternative, but was eventually asked to stick to the original.
“I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next.”
We could’ve gone with “I’ll never let go Jack,” and let you all swoon and sway. But the line that really brought to life the enormity of the Titanic, and aura of the vessel, was when Leonardo DiCaprio gets on top of the rail and yells,
“I’m the king of the world!”
A herald of perfect irony to the unsinkable ship…
As Arnold Schwarzenegger gears up for the , we let ourselves marvel at how awesome he’s been as the ultimate metal body, killing machine.
“I’ll be back,”
“hasta la vista baby,”
“you are terminated”
— if he came back in time to kill us, and we’d still be wooed!
What a moment for Rocky Balboa fans, when the bulky Russian competitor says this in his ever-so-believable accent:
“I must break you.”
The class of Robert De Niro in Taxi Driver, is encapsulated in these four words:
“You talking to me?”
Tried that in the mirror a couple of times too, haven’t you?
