“Say what again. SAY. WHAT. AGAIN!”

slj.jpgSurprisingly, there’s no Star Wars on QuigSpot’s list of the ten most obnoxiously over-quoted movies, unless one counts the whole ‘Anything with Samuel L. Jackson’ thing.

Now, maybe I hang out with too many geeks, but there are a few movies missing from this list: What about The Princess Bride? Spaceballs? The Big Lebowski? The collected works of Kevin Smith? What overused movie quotes could you live without?

It’s not a quote exactly, but one thing I don’t miss about scavenging for the weekly video posts is getting blasted with the motherbleeping Main Theme every other video. It’s practically an instant back-buttoner for me these days.

  1. The problem is the selection is too recentist. Other than Monty Python and a handful of Sam Jackson flicks, none of the movies are over ten years old; and over half are under five years old.

    Of course, I’m one of those geeks who thinks speaking in movie lines is a solidarity-building exercise with my fellow geeks. When I drop a “Try not! Do. Or do not. There is no try” or a “Would you say I have a plethora of pinatas?” into a conversation and get, neither laughter or opprobrium, but that appreciative, knowing look that tells me “I speak your language,” it’s all worth it.
