Great list.

Excellent list, Dave! It was a thrill to see a WISHMASTER quote. I was surprised you didn't have anything from BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA - then again, that would be its own 50 best quotes list.

Be well!

Joshua said...

Some classic all-timers, some lesser-knows and even a couple of controversial choices. There's some great ones on there. My favorites are the ones that are from movies I'm familiar with but hadn't really given the moment much thought.

Hi Dave,
I find your blog really interesting and useful. But, why you don't have a List of 'Favorite Screenwriters'?
Films are essentially Script. You know what Woody Allen said about it.

Best regards!

Jeff Hammer said...

Gotta ask if you are a fan of Woody Allen's Cafe Society, Magic in the Moonlight or Irrational Man, for some reason I like these more than everyone's favorites.
