Forget politicians and their empty promises – most of our favorite speeches come directly from the movies. Combine a great actor with a well-written speech and audiences end up looking at cinema gold (and actors might end up with some gold of their own in the form of various awards).
A great movie speech can leave quite an impression on the audience, after all. A good speech makes you want to rise up and applaud those involved (though you probably don’t because everyone else in the theatre would look at you like you’d gone insane). Still, they have the power to inspire such feelings… and are often the most memorable part of a movie.
So here are 10 more examples of movie speeches that completely dominate the films that they’re in – whether they’re full of anger, humor or heartbreak, they’re all impossible to forget.
