I strongly agree that GBU and OUATITW are the two greatest westerns ever. It's amazing that they voted for those masterpieces. All You Voters at, You Guys Rock!
Or not... those voters also put all the original Star Wars films and the Lord Of The Rings in the top 10 of all time... how could that ever happen?

Black Caesar, Hell Up In Harlem, no wait actually those are great movies.

However, that can't be said about The Enforcer, the third Dirty Harry film. But I love it all the same.

Favorite opening line(s)? Here's two of many;

Joey, Joey Doyle!...Hey, I got one of your birds. I recognize him by the band...He flew into my coop. You want him? ON THE WATERFRONT:
How could I have forgotten? One of my personal favorites... Brando's best work.

About those answers: You know you nailed them all, don't you? ;)

In succession to the best last line thread, what do you consider to be the finest first line(s) and in what movie can one hear and see these?

A couple of my personal favorites:

I believe in America.

My name is Lester Burnham. This is my neighborhood; this is my street; this is my life. I am 42 years old; in less than a year I will be dead. Of course I don't know that yet, and in a way, I am dead already.

And, of course:

And Frank?
Frank sent us.
Did you bring a horse for me?
Well... looks like we're...looks like we're shy one horse.
You brought two too many.

Just remebered another fantastic opening: Blue Velvet. Shots of a perfect little community with happy firemen, and then the camera goes underground to all the filth. It really sums up the entire film in the first couple of minutes. It's a recurring theme in Lynch's films. Things are not what they seem on the surface.

"The owls are not what they seem"
It chills me to the bone.
The opening of Mulholland Drive also effectively sums up the entire film, now that I think of it...

Butch Cassidy : Wait a minute - you didn't see LaForce out there did you?
Sundance Kid : LaForce? No, why?
Butch Cassidy : Thank God for that. For a moment there I thought we were in trouble.

Other great last lines are:

Well, nobody’s perfect.

Mein Fuhrer, I can walk!

I was cured all right.

A man’s got to know his limitations.

This was the story of Howard Beale, the first known instance of a man who was killed because he had lousy ratings.

The horror. The horror.

I'm the boss, I'm the boss, I'm the boss, I'm the boss, I'm the boss...(I'm the) boss, boss, boss, boss, boss, boss.

Rupert Pupkin, ladies and gentlemen. Let’s hear it for Rupert Pupkin. Wonderful. Rupert Pupkin, ladies and gentlemen.

Sure, I could have stayed in the past. I could have even been king. But in my own way, I am king. Hail to the king, baby.

The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist. And like that, he's gone.

Who can name them all? ;)

An opening sequence that is way better than the rest of the movie is, for example, Swordfish's opening sequence. It got a big round of applause at the sneak preview I attended a couple of years ago. Too bad the rest of the movie couldn't live up to its premise.

The same could be said about Saving Private Ryan...

Once Upon A Time In America / Re: De Niro Last Smile
« on: November 07, 2004, 02:34:12 PM »
remember when debroh tells him that poem about that because he is in a gang he will never be his love. well because his friends are dead he finally can . although he did fell bad about killing his friends as before he smiles it looks as if he is about to cry.

well just a thought
But raping her must've created barriers too...

For me, it has to be CAPTAIN APACHE! Daft plot, daft acting, daft main title song sung by.....MISTER LEE VAN CLEEF!
That last sentence really makes me wanna see it. :)

.... is like saying that Leone's westerns are dated because they are dubbed,
Why would that be dated? 70 to 80 procent of today's movies are completely dubbed or partially dubbed.

OK, folks! How about this. What do you think is the BEST LAST LINE OF A MOVIE EVER? This thread can include MR. LEONE'S movies. To kick off, I nominate a non-speaking last line. CHARLES BRONSON in DEATH WISH. A silent cinema moment, and yes, i am aware it's a crap movie, but when MISTER BRONSON points his finger at airport would be muggers, it says more than a handful of Shakespeare soliquays. (please excuse spelling).
That maybe, but it doesn't sound like a last line to me...

Well, I know women that are a lot like Jill...

Two more excellent endings spring to mind: PLANET OF THE APES (original of course) and the wonderful LITTLE CAESAR!
Mother of Mercy! Is this the end of Rico?

Belkin, what did you think of the ending of the original Scarface?
