While chatting to your buddy at home or to your special someone, you then share them the well-known quotes you’ve observed in one of the movies. Having a celebrated line and quotes in the film made the movie a smash hit hit and some of them were a classic.
We can always associate to these quotes, and that’s what made them famous. We used it in our daily lives and it affects the way we chat in a decent and amusing means. Say “I’ll be back” when saying farewell to a friend quoting Arnold Schwarzenegger in his film The Terminator (1984). “Life is like a box of chocolate, you’ll never know what you gonna get” is Forest Gump’s own expressions about life. Even the children in this day and age, they are able to quote the famous line of “Bond, James Bond”. To express frankness, why won’t you leave a quote from Gone with the Wind, “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn!” To increase more ambiance in a bunch of roses, why don’t you add a letter with a famed line from The Notebook “The best love is the kind that weakens the soul, that makes us reach for more, that plants fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds and that’s what you’ve given me that’s what I hope to give to you forever” and “love means never having to say you’re sorry” from the movie Love Story.”
In the other side of things, why won’t you add pizzazz to your life by calling your wife “My Precious” from the famed quote from The Lord of the Rings, but don’t forget the accent of Gollum! How will you react if you’re in a plane and the flight attendant just said in the PA “From Airplane (1980). How did men react when they heard one of the lines of Clue (1985) saying “Husbands should be like Kleenex: soft, strong and disposable”.
When you’re watching a movie, always watch for the lines that catches your interest, you may not be aware of, these lines will be popular in the yet to come.
So keep tags whilst appreciating the movie, Asta la vista baby!
Movies! This single word conjures up moving images of life captured and embedded in strips of celluloid. Since the late 1800s, movies have become a great source of entertainment for millions across the world. They move us to tear, shake us to laughter, provide courage and inspiration to attain the impossible and teach us a thousand ways to tackle situations in our life apart from giving us immense pleasure of a few hours of escape into another world.
Back in 2005, AFI had made a selection of 100 movies of Hollywood that have had a lasting impression on moviegoers in the last 100 years. It had also picked several aspects of movies such as dialogs, characters and scenes that have become unforgettable in the last 100 years of American celluloid history. It compiled 100 famous Hollywood dialogs as “100 years, 100 movie quotes”. This compilation includes some of the best movie quotes from Hollywood movies such as…

~ Clark Gable, Gone with the Wind.
Go ahead, make my day.
~ Clint Eastwood, Sudden Impact.
Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
~ Humphrey Bogart, Casablanca.

The AFI 100 quotes collection has been of great interest among lovers of Hollywood movies. The list had not been without some controversies. Many great movie pundits and film critics had felt that some notable quotes from classic movies had been ignored in favour of lesser but more popular films.
Critics felt that films like “One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest” or “Guns of Navarone” had been sidelined for popular blockbusters such as “Titanic”. However, many of the quotes included in the list were acknowledged and the AFI top 100 quotes list has been quite popular since it was first issued.
