Like Most Modern Media, Movie Quotes Are A Commentary on a Life Not Lived

LIFE

EVERYONE who has lived has watched AT LEAST one movie.

And practically EVERY movie has AT LEAST one quotable line in it.

So, it was that it was, while perusing UNUSUAL or MEMORABLE movie quotes, that one DISCOVERED the fake, manufactured quality of both 1) movie quotes; and, 2) modern life.

Like most modern lives, movie quotes are little commentaries on a life not lived ANYWHERE but on the screen.

And so, after wading through DOZENS of lists of odd movie quotes, the following were selected because they are–IN SOME WAY–as phony as modern life.

There are several duties the reader may be expected to perform while reading such lists.

1) How many quotes was the reader familiar with that made this list?

2) How many–does the reader agree–reflect the utter falseness of modern life?

3) How many appropriate quotes does the reader feel were NOT MENTIONED?

THE TOP TEN QUOTES

1 “Ogres are like onions.”
Shrek

2 “You’ve got red on you.”
Shaun of the Dead

3 “I am Groot.
Guardians of the Galaxy

4 “This is Sparta!
300

5 “I am gonna kill Bill.
Kill Bill Volume 2

6 “You gonna eat your tots?
Napoleon Dynamite

7 “Do you know what happens to a toad when its struck by lightning? The same thing that happens to everything else.
X-men

8 “With great power come great responsibility.”
Spider-Man

9 “The wrong kid died.”
Walk Hard: the Dewey Cox Story

10 “Honey? Where’s my super-suit?
The Incredibles

OTHER QUOTES WHICH ALMOST MADE THE LIST

“Rock stars have kidnapped my son!”
Almost Famous

Is this your king?
Black Panther

You shall not pass!
The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

Are you not entertained?
Gladiator

I’m finished.
There will be Blood

As per the title, each one of these quotes highlights the falseness of the life portrayed in the movie it came from; the story which the movie struggles to present to the movie-goer as part of REAL–not manufactured or contrived–life.

(What does the reader think of the ALMOST-title which was the ‘working’ title of this piece for a LONG TIME: Memorable but Obscure?)

[The title of this piece reflected the ORIGINAL intent of the piece: as a comment on the way movies present their stories AS IF they were true; i.e., part of someone’s REAL LIFE.  Instead, we got sidetracked by some quotes from those movies.]

DOES the reader watch a lot of movies?

WHY?

It is not YET too late: there is still a LITTLE time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
