1. Fight Club (1999)


David Fincher
Tyler : Man, I see in fight club the strongest and smartest men who've ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off.

2. V for Vendetta (2005)


James McTeigue
V : Voilà ! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition.

3. Iron Man 3 (2013)


Shane Black

Tony : You can take away my suits, you can take away my home, but there's one thing you can never take away from me : I am Iron Man.

4. Drive (2011)


Nicolas Winding Refn
Driver : There's a hundred-thousand streets in this city. You don't need to know the route. You give me a time and a place, I give you a five minute window. Anything happens in that five minutes and I'm yours. No matter what. Anything happens a minute either side of that and you're on your own. Do you understand ?

Shane Black
Perry : Look up idiot in the dictionary and you know what you'll find ?
Harry : A ... picture of my face ?
Perry : No ! The definition of the word idiot which you fucking are !

6. The Dark Knight (2008)


Christopher Nolan
Alfred : With respect Master Wayne, perhaps this is a man that don't fully understand, either. A long time ago, I was in Burma. My friends and I were working for the local government. They were trying to buy the loyalty of tribal leaders by bribing them with precious stones. But their caravans were being raided in a forest north of Rangoon by a bandit. So, we went looking for the stones. But in six months, we never met anybody who traded with him. One day, I saw a child playing with a ruby the size of a tangerine. The bandit had been throwing them away.
Bruce : So why steal them ?
Alfred : Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

7. Sin City (2005)


Robert Rodriguez
Marv : The night's as hot as hell. It's a lousy room in a lousy part of a lousy town - I'm staring at a goddess. She's telling me she wants me. I'm not going to waste one more minute wondering how I've gotten this lucky. She smells like angels ought to smell, the perfect woman... the Goddess. Goldie. She says her name is Goldie.

8. The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002)


Peter Jackson
Galadriel : The power of the enemy is growing. Sauron will use his puppet Saruman to destroy the people of Rohan. Isengard has been unleashed. The Eye of Sauron now turns to Gondor, the last free kingdom of men. His war on this country will come swiftly. He senses the Ring is close. The strength of the Ringbearer is failing. In his heart, Frodo begins to understand. The quest will claim his life. You know this. You have foreseen it. It is the risk we all took. In the gathering dark, the will of the Ring grows strong. It works hard now to find its way back into the hands of men. Men, who are so easily seduced by its power. The young captain of Gondor has but to extend his hand, take the Ring for his own and the world will fall. It is close now, so close to achieving its goal. For Sauron will have dominion over all life on this Earth, even unto the ending of the world. The time of the elves is over. Do we leave Middle-Earth to its fate ? Do we let them stand alone ?

9. X-Men: First Class (2011)


Matthew Vaughn
Sebastian : Erik, what a pleasant surprise. So good to see you again. May I ask you something ? Why are you on their side ? Why fight for a doomed race who will hunt us down as soon as they realize their reign is coming to an end ? I'm sorry for what happened in the camps. I truly am. But everything I did, I did for you. To unlock your power. To make you embrace it. You've come a long way from bending gates. I'm so proud of you. And you're just starting to scratch the surface. Think of how much further we could go, together. I don't want to hurt you, Erik. I never did. I want to help you. This is our time. Our age. We are the future of the human race. You and me, son. This world could be ours.

10. Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003)


Quentin Tarantino
The Bride : As I lay in the back of Buck's truck, trying to will my limbs out of entropy, I could see the faces of the cunts that did this to me and the dicks responsible. Members all of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad. When fortune smiles on something as violent and ugly as revenge, it seems proof like no other, that not only does God exist, you're doing His will.

11. Million Dollar Baby (2004)


Clint Eastwood
Frankie : I swear to God, Father, it's committing a sin by doing it. By keeping her alive I'm killing her. Do you know what I mean, how do I get around that ?
Father Horvak : You don't. You step aside, Frankie. You leave her with God.
Frankie : She's not asking for God's help. She's asking for mine.
Father Horvak : Frankie, I've seen you at Mass almost every day for 23 years. The only person comes to church that much is the kind who can't forgive himself for something. Whatever sins you're carrying, they're nothing compared to this. Forget about God or heaven and hell. If you do this thing, you'll be lost. Somewhere so deep you'll never find yourself again.
Frankie : I think I did it already.

12. The Green Mile (1999)


Frank Darabont
Paul : On the day of my judgment, when I stand before God, and He asks me why did I kill one of his true miracles, what am I gonna say ? That it was my job ? My job ?
John : You tell God the Father it was a kindness you done. I know you hurtin' and worryin', I can feel it on you, but you oughta quit on it now. Because I want it over and done. I do. I'm tired, boss. Tired of bein' on the road, lonely as a sparrow in the rain. Tired of not ever having me a buddy to be with, or tell me where we's coming from or going to, or why. Mostly I'm tired of people being ugly to each other. I'm tired of all the pain I feel and hear in the world everyday. There's too much of it. It's like pieces of glass in my head all the time. Can you understand ?

13. The Shawshank Redemption (1994)


Frank Darabont
Red : I have no idea to this day what those two Italian ladies were singing about. Truth is, I don't want to know. Some things are best left unsaid. I'd like to think they were singing about something so beautiful, it can't be expressed in words, and makes your heart ache because of it. I tell you, those voices soared higher and farther than anybody in a gray place dares to dream. It was like some beautiful bird flapped into our drab little cage and made those walls dissolve away, and for the briefest of moments, every last man in Shawshank felt free.

14. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the Kin... (2003)


Peter Jackson
Aragorn : Hold your ground, hold your ground ! Sons of Gondor, of Rohan, my brothers ! I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of woes and shattered shields, when the age of men comes crashing down ! But it is not this day ! This day we fight ! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you stand, Men of the West !

15. Skyfall (2012)

Sam Mendes
Silva : They kept me for five months in a room with no air. They tortured me, and I protected your secrets. I protected you. But they made me suffer. And suffer. And suffer. Until I realized, it was you who betrayed me. You betrayed me. So, I had only one thing left. My cyanide capsule in my back left molar. You remember, right ? So, I broke the tooth and bit into the capsule. It... burned all my insides, but I didn't die. Life clung to me like a disease. And then I understood why I had survived. I needed to look in your eyes one last time.

16. 300 (2006)


Zack Snyder
Xerxes : There will be no glory in your sacrifice. I will erase even the memory of Sparta from the histories ! Every piece of Greek parchment shall be burned. Every Greek historian, and every scribe shall have their eyes pulled out, and their tongues cut from their mouths. Why, uttering the very name of Sparta, or Leonidas, will be punishable by death ! The world will never know you existed at all !
Leonidas : The world will know that free men stood against a tyrant, that few stood against many, and before this battle was over, even a god-king can bleed.

17. Casino Royale (2006)


Martin Campbell
Vesper : It doesn't bother you ? Killing all those people ?
James : Well I wouldn't be very good at my job if it did.

18. Inglourious Basterds (2009)


Quentin Tarantino
Lt. Raine : My name is Lt. Aldo Raine and I'm putting together a special team, and I need me eight soldiers. Eight Jewish-American soldiers. Now, y'all might've heard rumors about the armada happening soon. Well, we'll be leaving a little earlier. We're gonna be dropped into France, dressed as civilians. And once we're in enemy territory, as a bushwhackin' guerrilla army, we're gonna be doin' one thing and one thing only... killin' Nazis. Now, I don't know about y'all, but I sure as hell didn't come down from the goddamn Smoky Mountains, cross five thousand miles of water, fight my way through half of Sicily and jump out of a fuckin' air-o-plane to teach the Nazis lessons in humanity. Nazi ain't got no humanity. They're the foot soldiers of a Jew-hatin', mass murderin' maniac and they need to be dee-stroyed. That's why any and every every son of a bitch we find wearin' a Nazi uniform, they're gonna die. Now, I'm the direct descendant of the mountain man Jim Bridger. That means I got a little Injun in me. And our battle plan will be that of an Apache resistance. We will be cruel to the Germans, and through our cruelty they will know who we are. And they will find the evidence of our cruelty in the disemboweled, dismembered, and disfigured bodies of their brothers we leave behind us. And the German won't not be able to help themselves but to imagine the cruelty their brothers endured at our hands, and our boot heels, and the edge of our knives. And the German will be sickened by us, and the German will talk about us, and the German will fear us. And when the German closes their eyes at night and they're tortured by their subconscious for the evil they have done, it will be with thoughts of us they are tortured with. Sound good ?

19. Sherlock Holmes (2009)


Guy Ritchie
Sherlock : Head cocked to the left, partial deafness in ear : first point of attack. Two : throat; paralyze vocal chords, stop scream. Three : got to be a heavy drinker, floating rib to the liver. Four : finally, drag in left leg, fist to patella. Summary prognosis : unconscious in ninety seconds, martial efficacy quarter of an hour at best. Full faculty recovery : unlikely.

20. RocknRolla (2008)


Guy Ritchie
Johnny : No need to worry just yet, boys. They're not going to do it while we're standing in the lift. Because then they'd have to carry the corpses to the cars, and that seems too much like hard work. In about two minutes there, Danny boy there is gonna turn and pop me two in the head, then one in the throat just to be sure. You shouldn't have brought me here, fellas, you're just going to end up as witnesses. Once they've "dealt" with us, they will put our corpses in the boot of a stolen car, then pour six gallons of petrol on the car. I'll let your imagination do the rest. Now, Danny boy here is rattled, because he knows that you know. And so, he's going to fire.

I would just like to say it's a wonderful list.
It's nice to see some appreciation for Craig's Bond movie.

I just love you for LoTR. I mean, it's nice to see someone else who prefers The Two Towers over The Return of the King.

If you like the Departed, you should check out Infernal Affairs. Simmilar story, better movie.

I still need to check out First Class...
