“They may take our lives, but they’ll never take away our Top 5 Lists!”

Part of the staying power of a movie is an expertly delivered movie line. When all things about a movie are firing on all cylinders (the music, the shot composition, the delivery, etc.) it can set up a perfect moment for a movie line that lives with us well after the credits roll.  So this week, join Tuong La and ‘My Wiiifes’ Angus MacDonald, Nathan Hartswick, and Annie Russel as they combine their cinema brains together and make a Top 5 Iconic Movie Lines list!

Ground Rules

  • Nominations has to be a line from one character. ie you cannot nominate an exchange between two characters
  • The nominations are not necessarily saying these are the best movies of all time, rather which ones are most iconic
  • Recognizably outside the scope of the movie is a point in it’s favour
  • A great delivery of the line is a point in the nominations favour
  • As always, at the end of the day these are OUR favourite movie lines that we deem iconic.
