I say we take off and nuke Topless Robot from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

As I grow older, I've come to realize that Monty Python and the Holy Grail is a really mediocre movie that's nowhere as funny as all the people who tediously quote lines from that movie back at me think it is.
 
2012-06-01 03:53:29 PM
I haven't seen Avengers yet, but "Hulk smash" and "Shawarma" doesn't make it a top ten quotable movie. Unless you count Fark headlines.
 
2012-06-01 04:02:11 PM
List fails without Office Space. Guess they didnt get the memo.
 
2012-06-01 04:17:01 PM
Your blog sucks. So does this list.

The Avengers? Fun movie, but quotable? F*ck that.
 
2012-06-01 04:17:05 PM
Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.
 
2012-06-01 04:38:06 PM
Monty Python, Princess Bride and Star Wars are the top 3.

Everything else comes after them.

/least that is how it should be
 
2012-06-01 04:42:07 PM
I quote Ghostbusters a lot.

Listen. *dramatic pause* Did you smell something?
 
2012-06-01 04:42:23 PM
Missing from list:

www.founditemclothing.com

"Was it a dream where you see yourself standing in sort of sun-god robes on a pyramid with a thousand naked women screaming and throwing little pickles at you?"

"No."

"Why am I the only one who has that dream?"

List COMPLETELY fails without Lebowski, (Although, it is debatable if that is a "geek" film, it is still quite often quoted by geeks. Any movie that makes cameos on Power Puff Girls and My Little Pony has got to have some serious geek cred) Office Space, and last but CERTAINLY not least...

Assuming an equal amount of time being released, which do YOU think has been said more:

When asked "What is best in life?" To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women."

or "I know Kung Fu"

"There is no spoon" (Every DAMNED time someone mentions silverware, its "SPOOON!... then "There is no spoon"

Heh, when that movie came out I had a bad habit of saying "DODGE THIS" whenever I snuck behind/next to someone on Counter-Strike. Made it even better if I was using the Desert Eagle.

I never understood what the hell was so funny about it myself.

list is an utter failure without Spaceballs (or any Mel Brooks movie for that matter) and Galaxy Quest

Why so serious?
 
2012-06-01 05:18:31 PM
I think Jurassic Park is overlooked. Jeff Goldblum connected the audience to all the dino-FX.

"You do plan to have dinosaurs on your dinosaur tour? Hello?"

"John, when the Pirates of the Caribbean breaks down, the pirates don't eat the tourists."

*barely gets away from T-Rex*

"You think they'll have that on the tour?"

Of course not. They can't eat anything due to the curse of the Black Pearl.

I don't know if the Big Lewbowski or Boogie Nights are for 'geeks', but they are chalk full of great lines.

Where the white women at?
 
2012-06-01 05:50:12 PM
How can you mention Ghostbusters and not mention the greatest geek quote in the movie:

"Back off man I'm a scientist."
 
2012-06-01 05:50:24 PM
"Leeloo Dallas... Mutlipass"
 
2012-06-01 05:51:18 PM
Ok so I'm not on top of things when it comes to comics and such, but watching that Avengers clip I gotta ask. Has Dr. Banner always been able to turn into the Hulk as quickly as he did in that clip? Again, I don't know.

And Better Off Dead. "That's a damn shame, people be throwin' away a perfectly good white boy like that." And so on.

Or all Mel Brooks movies...

My friends and I quote MST3K riffs a lot... They should make it on these lists, just once.

See you at the party, Richter.

No Blazing Saddles, Airplane, Blues Brothers, Office Space, Lebowski, and Princess bride is all the way back at 7?

True, even the newer stuff, I can't see Billy Zane in any movie with out wanting to say "The Zane Train has Arrived Ladies."

No Caddyshack?

How about...you know...a little somethin' for the effort?

Anyone tell me what he linked in that photo? Don't know it, but if it's equitable to Office Space, Lebowski, etc...

Also: I hate, loath, despise, abhor, and generally wish to muder the Monty Python movies. They're mediocre at best, and having people shiat themselves to quote them non-stop for 10 years at me just rapes the funny right out.

Love the shows, can't stand the movies.

Casablanca. That script is one memorable line after another, non-stop. And that's true whether you're a geek or not.

Decent list. I'd add Highlander to those listed above here..and Jaws.

The best movie for one liners always has been and always will be Commando.

pretty much this. Hell, maybe it was because I heard the whole movie quoted verbatim by dozens of different people, but I never saw what the big deal was with the movie. I would pay to never ever hear another person quoting Holy Grail.

It's extremely silly. It's not the only type of humor I like, but it's one of my favorites. I'm glad they used my favorite scene for the clip. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony. I mean, if I went round sayin I was emperor simply because some moistened bint lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away.

And fist bumps for Ghostbusters, Jurassic Park, and the best movie to ever grace a silver screen: Princess Bride.

Oh and no Back to the Future? Geez, Doc!
