Inspired by Sharan Shetty's Video of Best Movie Monologues

When you think of your favorite monologue in a movie, in which of these 12 categories, does it fit?

Discuss here

Since these categories might overlap, please take the order into consideration, and pick the highest one.

For instance, "you can't handle the truth" is an angry tirade, a villainous monologue, a military AND a courtroom speech, yet it falls under the coutroom category because :
- antagonists or villains are more likely to deliver angry tirades;
- the villain is more of an obligatory antagonist in the trial
- the speech plays a pivotal role for the outcome of the case
The context of the trial is the most significant parameter.

This list features all the actors with at least 4 pre-2000 screen characters nominated to the American Film Institute Top 100 Heroes and Villains. To give you an idea, these 15 actors and actress (kudos to Bette Davis!) put together, represent about 20% of all the nominated characters that impacted American movies' memories and about 25% of the Top 100 list. This called for a poll!

There's something genuinely appealing in a title sequence starting after an opening scene, even more when it goes with a song that totally sets the tone of the movie...
...yet there must be a proper way to introduce it, and directors like Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino became experts in setting an opening credits sequence through a memorable line.

So, which of these two last lines from Marty and QT's classics that introduced an unforgettable opening title sequence is your favorite?

Needless to say that you don't necessarily vote for your prefered movie, just your favorite 'line then music' moment.

These are two of the most iconic characters of American cinema's history who seem to share many similarities : both started as social/urban outsiders, doing their best to fit in a disillusioned post-Nixon America, they're both average, well-meaning, and sometimes dim-witted, average Joes ...

... but somewhere along the line, they decided to discipline their body and their mind and to fight the world as it was coming to them.

At the end, they simply transcended their condition for better (Balboa) or for a debatable worse (Bickle). In either ways, they acted according to their own beliefs, and became -in that glorious cinematic year of 1976- two inspirational polar opposites.

Whether people responded to Rocky's inspirational message about 'going the distance' or Travis' decision not to take any crap any more and get rid of the 'scum' that ravages society, there's no denial that these two characters, played by Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro (both Oscar-nominated for their roles), and starring in two Best Picture nominees, will forever be regarded as two of the most defining (anti)heroes of America's history.

Till now, many people regret that "Taxi Driver" didn't win the Best Picture while it was a gripping social commentary about the alienating effects of post-modernity while many others regard "Rocky" as one of most inspirational movies ever, a model who exceeded the limits of the country, and the deserving Best Picture winner of the year.

Now, which of these two characters, do you most identify with? (and if you don't, which one do you simply prefer?)

Probably two of the most unanimously criticized Oscar-snubs of recent years, both lead performances in Darren Aronofsky's movies : Ellen Burstyn as Sara Goldfarb in Requiem for a Dream and Mickey Rourke in The Wrestler.

Both actors made a spectacular come-back with these two roles, giving the performance of a lifetime, universally acclaimed by critics and movie goers, yet they both ended up losing the Oscar for more "politically correct" choices, (according to the complainers).

Anyway, which of these two performances most deserved to win the Oscar? which snub shocked you the most?

They surely know how to write entertaining and unforgettable dialogues, one being a master of Black comedy and the other of self-derision (guess which is which?).

Some romances can get as weird and bizarre as a Valentine's Day following a Black Friday ... and Lea Thompson knows a thing or two about that.

Indeed, in the middle of the 80's, Lea Thompson starred in both the famous and the infamous, the best with Back to the Future and the worst with Howard the Duck.

Despite some similarities, Sci-fi-wise, the two films couldn't have been more opposite. Yet they had one thing in common besides starring Lea Thompson, they both featured two of the most cringe-worthy and disturbing romances ever.

Granted Lorraine didn't know Marty was her son and Howard was an 'anthropomorphic' duck, it's quite difficult to overlook the Oedipal and Bestial undertones of each relationship, hence the question : which of these two romances, culminating with one kiss, do you think, is the most cringe-worthy?

Of course, there's no comedy that doesn't feature a dramatic relief moment (and vice versa) but we're talking of films that feature comedic and dramatic moments on an almost equal level.

At the end, 11 significant lists were made (we won't count the Top 50 movie stars because it doesn't feature any movie title, nor the Top 100 Movies from 1998 since it's been updated in 2007)

Out of these 11 lists, only 12 American classics had the privilege to be listed in at least 6 of them. Which one, in your opinion, best defines American Cinema ... if you had to pick one of them to show how great American Cinema is, which one would you pick?

This poll was inspired by my old pal Jalapenoman who only likes gangster movies where gangsters are the bad guys and get their comeuppance at the end, the main protagonist is generally a cop or a honest man or an outsider from the criminal world, the story can also be about a redemption after the darkest sides of crime have been clearly exposed, not in a preachy way.

Ridicule is one of my favorite French movies, its international tag-line says : "Wit the ultimate weapon" while in French, it is : "Ridiculousness can kill". Both got it right.

In a nutshell this is the story of a poor French lord who, in order to get royal backing on a needed drainage project, must learn to play the delicate games of wit at court at Versailles. But I like one IMDb user's description better : "In the periwigged and opulent France of Louis XVI, an unwitting nobleman soon discovers that survival at court demands both a razor wit and an acid tongue."

Being a fan of quotes-related polls, I couldn't resist, for this is probably one of the wittiest and smartest screenplays ever written always full of one-liners and never lost in transaltion.

Like Marquis de Bellegarde Jean Rochefort said : "I used to keep a list of witty remarks. I filed them by category: Repartees, Quips, Paradoxes.." All those from the film are featured in this list, which one is the wittiest in your opinion? (and have a good read)

According to Tv Tropes (from which most of the options listed are borrowed), the definition of a Greek Chorus goes like this :

Greek Chorus : "A minor character or group of minor characters who offer commentary and/or opinions on the actions of the main characters, usually by Breaking the Fourth Wall and addressing the audience directly. [...]

While a lead character can do this himself, it doesn't make him a Greek Chorus; a proper Greek Chorus differs by being removed from the action and thus able to view it with something approaching objectivity. [...] It's one use for the First-Person Peripheral Narrator.

Strictly speaking, an omniscient narrator usually wouldn't qualify as a Greek Chorus. However, the lemony type who repeatedly breaks the Fourth Wall and makes asides to the audience to the point that they're a "character" unto themselves might reach the point where they overlap with it.

If the narration is revealed to be by an actual main member, retroactively telling the story to someone else, it may count, but the important qualifier is that their opinions are objective and express what the audience would think (if they are retroactively self-deprecating of even their own actions, etc.)"

Call it opinion, generational bias or simply nostalgia... but I always had the feeling that *my* generation (those who grew up during the 80's and early 90's) was blessed with some of the greatest and most thrilling animated TV series ever, all with their share of adventures, thrills and fun ... and even some obscure yet appealing weirdness.

It's this long forgotten period set after the Hanna-Barbera's Golden Age and before the Pokemons, that this poll pays tribute. Now, some of the series I had the privilege to grow up with, have already been adapted to movies, among them "TNMT", "Inspector Gadget", "The Smurfs" and "Transformers" and I concede that the results didn't always match our expectations.

But maybe this is because the producers didn't pay attention to the series with greater potential. Personnally, I've always wondered why I could never see Lawrence Fishburne playing 'Bullet-Proof' in a movie adaptation of "C.O.P.S" or how come an environmentalist cartoon like "Captain Planet" was never given a chance to enlighten the younger generations about the dangers that threaten our planet. Go figure why.

But here's the question: which of these (forgotten?) 80's/90's animated series would make the most awesome live-action adaptation?
