There is just something about a 'best of' list, isn't there? We can't help ourselves I guess; I mean, how many AFI
specials are we up to now, anyway? The Independent
has compiled the best and worst film lines of all time, so automatically I started to think about my favorites and not so favorites. I have to admit, they've got a pretty good list
: The usual candidates are there, but there are also a few surprises. I wholeheartedly agree that "As far back as I can remember, I've always wanted to be a gangster. ... " from Goodfellas
, is possibly one of the great movie intros of all time.
Now, the ones on my list? I'm a sucker for a one liner so, some of my favorites would be Glenn Close
in Dangerous Liaisons
; "Like most intellectuals he's intensely stupid." And George Sanders
in All About Eve
:"You're maudlin and full of self pity, you're magnificent." And my worst list would be pretty much any line from Showgirls
-- do I have to pick just one? So now it's your turn ...what would you're best and worst list look like?
