Star Wars Star Wars: A New Hope ranked 8th with 'May the Force be With You'
Leave it up to AFI, the people behind the top 100 films, to come up with the next set of top 100 movie quotes. The films selected date anywhere from present-day to just over the 1920's. A lot of the films, or should I say quotes, you will know, but that doesn't mean you will approve of their ranking.

Top 100 Movie Quotes


After reading through the movie quotes I have to say that I disagree with a lot of it. It seems like a lot of the present-day smaller [b-films] have been left out. Just to get you warmed up, here is a sample of what to expect:

Well, that's at least the top 50 of the best movie quotes from film. I had still hoped to see 'Not without incident' from Equilibrium or 'Me scusa' from Euro Trip; maybe AFI doesn't look at those films. To check out all the rest, head over to AFI.

Stay tuned for updates.
