The top 100 movie quotes . . .
of all time, as presented by the American Film Institute.
Unsurprisingly, there are few quotes from films in the past ten to fifteen years. Only one film from this century is mentioned (The Two Towers: "My precious").
One wonders whether Hollywood will get the message: good dialogue and a powerful script ARE more important than neverending CGI special effects (yes, I'm talking to YOU, George Lucas).
I doubt it. That would require Hollywood directors to, well, THINK about their releases and actually hire, well, ACTORS and WRITERS instead of esthetically appealing gadflies possessing a dubious intellect a few morals.
