Throwback Thursday: Monologues

Happy Throwback Thursday! Today we look back to some of the best movie monologues Hollywood has produced. Now in all honesty, there is no possible way to make a list that includes all the best movie monologues ever made without that list being at least a hundred pages long. Movies are emotional, touching, sustaining pieces of art that have the ability to reach into the depths of an audience’s soul. Some of the most beautiful words ever written can be found on 35mm film, so how can one Top 10 list encapsulate the best monologues given by characters in film? It can’t. However, we can pick some of our favorites and revel in the goose bump inducing sentiment.

1. The Great Dictator

We think too much and feel too little.
More than machinery we need humanity,
more than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness.

2. Gone With The Wind

As God is my witnessI’ll never be hungry again!

3. A Time To Kill

Can you see her ? I want you to picture that little girl.
Now imagine she’s white.

4. Requiem for A Dream

It’s a reason to lose weight, to fit in the red dress. 
It’s a reason to smile.

5. Trainspotting

I chose not to choose life. I chose something else. 
And the reasons? There are no reasons. 
Who needs reasons when you’ve got heroin?

6. The Shawshank Redemption

 I hope to see my friend and shake his hand. 
I hope the Pacific is as blue as it has been in my dreams. 
I hope.

7. Kill Bill Volume 2

Clark Kent is Superman’s critique on the whole human race.

8. Devil’s Advocate

Let me give you a little inside information about God. 
God likes to watch. 

9. Good Will Hunting (x2)

How do you like them apples?

I could be elected president.

10. Finding Nemo

I look at you, and I…and I’m home!
