Movie Speeches: Sound off Like You Got a Pair!

It’s been a while since we posted what was supposed to be a regular feature around here. Truth be told, I’ve just been saving my wad for what is probably the second best military speech in the history of cinema. Mr. Lee Emery in Stanley Kubrick’s Full Metal Jacket. Despite Kubrick being my favorite director of all time, I never much cared for...

Movie Speeches: 40 in 2 Minutes

So you might have noticed a little feature around here we like to call “Great Movie Speeches.” It’s a fun exercise and it gets people talking (occasionally). But this edit job by Matthew Belinkie really goes above and beyond. He has put together 40 inspirational movie speeches cleverly edited together within a two minute capsule. Some of them...

Movie Speeches: It all seems limitless…

Call this the final post to purge my recent obsession with Bernardo Bertolucci‘s The Sheltering Sky. This is a film that got slammed pretty hard upon its 1990 release, and yet I find myself going back to it again and again. Pauline Kael once said that great films are rarely perfect ones. And that is certainly the case here. Take for instance,...

Movie Speeches: Where’s the Tylenol?

Occasionally a speech comes along that isn’t meant to inspire or rally the troops or the like. Sometimes a character has to just get something off their chest. Juliet did something like that from her balcony and Derek Zoolander said a few words at his friend’s funeral. But no one has ever been able to convey anger and frustration as effectively as...

Movie Speeches: Team Work

Major SPOILER ALERT here. If you have not seen Deep Blue Sea, it’s probably best not to watch the following clip. However, it might be one of the best WTF moments in cinema history. We have Sam The Man giving quite the inspirational speech to bring “the troops” together and overcome nature’s wrath/threat; because only man has the...

Movie Speeches: With Some Balls

This one goes beyond inspiration. It’s also convincingly strong propaganda. This is the kind of leader the world needs today. Someone to put things into perspective so we can all understand. Someone who tells it like it is and isn’t afraid of the political backlash. Sometimes a speech just makes you wanna stand up and cheer. The world needs: Gary. ....

Movie Speeches: The Last Barman Poet

While continuing on with this series I find that most of the best movie speeches are either for inspiration or instruction. Quite often they are military related in nature. Courtrooms are another good place to look for some young hotshot to deliver a rousing spectacle of verbal consciousness. But sometimes… sometimes. A movie comes along in the...

Movie Speeches: Always Be Closing

A new feature I’ve decided to start. Mostly because I love starting features here and then never following up. At any rate, I started thinking of great movie speeches/soliloquies and came up with several. Several good ones actually. So a great idea for a regular post. Here’s one I know we’re pretty big fans of around here. Alec Baldwin kicks a...
