Ten minutes and 44 seconds, but if you love the movies, set aside the time
to watch this...


One hundred of the best lines from movies . . . a must see!

best,

in media res

P. S. Remember, great lines come from the immense dramatic or comic effect they have from being positioned in the great and heightened dramatic situations from which they spring from a character. If they occurred earlier or later in the movie, or if they just stood alone, they would not be famous.

More than likely, if Hamlet had said "To be or not to be" at the beginning of the play, it would not have been a famous line.

IMR:

put this up on the overhead projector for my study hall yesterday. Kids were mesmerized. Watched it twice after some kids came in halfway through the first showing.

It was cool.
