Top 10 most quotable moviesThursday, March 02, 2006 By Victoria Hess
Posted: 3/3/06 What is something most Americans have in common? The answer: going out and enjoying a good movie. The varieties of movies that are enjoyable differ from person to person - from comedy to action or romance to horror - but no one can resist sitting down for two to three hours of entertainment. But what makes a movie a good movie? Is it the actors and actresses? Is it the set, the plot or the script? “The story line, the music and the coloring,” says Jaque Lutz, PALCS tenth grader. Most people will agree that the story or plot is what makes a movie good to watch. It is something that keeps your interest where something new comes with every turn. A lot of people also agree that a lot of good movies are the best ones to quote. They don’t have to be funny to be quotable. They can be movies that really have good morals. “The best movies to quote are movies that stick out in your mind,” said Brianna Hull, PALCS eleventh grader and the Talon Assistant Editor. Even though there are good movies out there to quote, some warnings do come with it. Not all ‘good’ movies are best for everyone to see. A lot of the movies that everyone at PALCS thought were the best ranged from G to PG-13. That goes to show that it doesn’t have to be rated R to be good. Here’s a list of movies that PALCS students voted as ‘most quotable.’ 10. “ Bring It On ” (rated PG-13) 9, “ Finding Nemo ” (rated G) 8. “ Mean Girls ” (rated PG-13) 7. “ Lord of the Rings Trilogy ” (rated PG-13) 6. “ Pirates of the Caribbean ” (rated PG-13) 5. “ Napoleon Dynamite ” (rated PG) 4. “ Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire ” (rated PG-13) 3. “ Shrek 2 ” (rated PG) 2. “ The Notebook ” (rated PG-13) And the number one most quotable movie movie, only winning by merely one point is… “ Shrek ” (rated PG). Almost everyone at PALCS seems to enjoy a movie with a good laugh and also funny action. Keep this list handy so the next time you are in the mood for a good movie, you’ll have some ideas.
