Gaming Culture: Quoting Cult Favorites
Labels: game culture
In some cases, I actually started with the quotes and watched the movies. Other times I'd watched the movies already, and remember the quote only when it was brought up. Still other times, I'd have to ask before I could remember the flick.
Here are a few of the movies we used to quote a lot from, and one favorite quote:
Aliens: "Marines! We are leaving!"
Ghostbusters: "You will have saved the lives of millions of registered voters."
Blues Brothers: "We're on a mission from God."
Star Wars trilogy: "Stay on target. Stay on target!"
Star Trek movies: "Target that explosion and fire."
Big Trouble in Little China: "Master! You are flesh!"
Blade Runner: "If only you could see what I've seen with your eyes."
Conan: "Enough talk!"
Running Scared: "Habla Smith & Wesson?"
Predator: "If it bleeds, we can kill it."
The Warriors: "Warriors! Come out and play!"
Monty Python (Holy Grail): "Tis but a scratch."
The Princess Bride: "Inconceivable!"
Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension: "Laugh while you can, monkey boy."
There are more of course -- but I may be boring you already. Were we the only ones who did this?
