Impressive Popular Film quotations

Popular film quote Do not exchange your dignity for popularity.
Do not exchange your dignity for popularity.

May the Force be with you.

I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse.

Popular film quote Avoid popularity; it has many snares and no real benefit.
Avoid popularity; it has many snares and no real benefit.

The standardization of world culture, with local popular or traditional forms driven out or dumbed down to make way for American television, American music, food, clothes and films, has been seen by many as the very heart of globalization.

A few words of Hindi appear here or there, but it's all Urdu.

I feel that if the popular culture, which is what Hindi films are, uses Urdu, it's not going to diminish.


Listen to them, the children of the night. What music they make!

Popular film quote I'm not interested in a realistic look - not at all, not ever. Every film should
I'm not interested in a realistic look - not at all, not ever. Every film should look the way I feel.

I'll make him an offer he can't refuse.

Our point isn't to make an examination of popular film but to illustrate that the yearning for a heroic adventure lies just beneath the surface of our consciousness; film, television, literature, sports, and travel are in a sense vicarious adventures.

Audience members are only concerned about the story, the concept, the bells and whistles and the noise that a popular film starts to make even before it's popular. So audiences will not be drawn to the technology; they'll be drawn to the story. And I hope it always remains that way.

Popular film quote Great moments are born from great opportunities.
Great moments are born from great opportunities.

It's become very popular in contemporary films to have the twist ending.


My name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die!

I was definitely surprised when Talk Radio took off as a play.

As a film it has become somewhere between a popular thing and a cult thing.

Popular film quote Life is a giant popularity contest

Popular films are so powerful and compelling that it's often easier to accept their versions of history than the much more complicated true stories.

I'm not in this business to win a popularity contest, I just want to be a good actor. Well, you've failed at being a good actor. Why not try for the popularity contest?

Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room.

Popular film quote To make a great film need three things - the script, the script and the script.
To make a great film need three things - the script, the script and the script.

I always wanted to live the lives of different people, portray characters that are different from me. But I could have done that in front of a mirror, also, I didn't need to do films for that. At the end of the day, it's this fame, recognition, popularity, the love and appreciation you get from your audience that drives you.

I was never a fanatical movie person.

There are many popular films I absolutely love like anyone else. Having said that, I don't have time to go to the movies very much. I work a lot of different things, I'm always busy. But I'm always happy to see a popular movie.

And it's not only films, I'm pretty unaware of anything that's going on in popular culture right now.

It's sad that women characters have lost so much ground in popular movies.

Didn't 'Thelma and Louise' prove that women want to see women doing things on film? Thelma and Louise were in a classic car; they were being chased by cops; they shot up a truck - and women loved it.

I don't, really a fashionable person.

I'm an actor, so I like costumes. But fashion is very popular now. Really overly popular. It's like New Age music in the '80s, or art. And then independent film. Now everyone's a fashion designer. It's had a big effect in New York, in our culture.


I make unpopular versions of popular things.

I make a horror film and it's not a horror film. None of my genre movies function as genre movies.

I don't know. I think that horror, in general, is fairly popular. It's definitely popular in film. There's just not a lot of good horror on TV, so whenever there is good horror on TV, people rush to it.

I've done movies with Oliver Stone and Michael Mann.

And I've done quite a few dramas in my time, from the theatre to film work. I just think the audience is used to seeing me on 'Saturday Night Live,' and 'K-9,' and 'Curly Sue' and of course, 'According to Jim.' I think that my comedies have been the most popular.

A few years ago I appeared on GLEE and, Jane Lynch and I did a remake of the song that was very popular - someone told me it was in the Top 100 when it was released. First, walking on the set of GLEE the day we filmed it was surreal as they had recreated the entire original set from the music video. It was bizarre - but fun.

I've always longed for the theatre and acting to be popular.

No actor wants to play to an empty house. We only do it for an audience. The more the merrier. I don't make any distinction between a popular TV series or blockbuster film and doing Shakespeare. They're different, but as long as the material is good and the intention is honourable, it's all the same to me.


I do know that I've read somewhere that it's been statistically proven that in times of war, horror films are much more popular. I don't know why that is. You'd think it'd be the opposite. You'd think people would want to escape from it.

It's easy to like the most popular films, but I have a great fondness for 'A Life Less Ordinary'.

I mean, certainly it's the single biggest event, I think, in terms of popular entertainment, or art even, if you say that, of the 20th Century. It's been film. It's the 20th Century's real art form.

American films are terribly popular all over the world and American movie stars are terribly important. I don't know why.

We enjoyed such amazing success on Sex and the City.

You don't expect success on that level, it was such a big deal, and it was so intense and wonderful that it is hard for anything else to live up to it, quite frankly. So now I just try to have fun and work with interesting people. I think that there is a perception that certain films won't be popular. So it was great that The Devil Wears Prada did really well.


The thing with America is that... however you want to denigrate them for being crass or whatever, with a film that they like and think is well written, well-made and is popular, they actually want to work with those people and want to follow that, whereas I've had nothing coming in from the UK... nothing at all. Whether that sums up the state of the industry now, I don't know. But it's strange.

Richard Donner made great movies. Seminal movies. The Academy, though, and we have to be careful here, should recognize popular films. Popular films are what make it all work. There was a time when popular movies were commercial movies, and they were good movies, and they had to be good movies. There was no segregation between good independent films and popular movies.

Somebody pointed out to me that there's no horror film on my resume, which is true, but I also don't really go see those movies. Although when I was thinking about it, I was thinking "I would probably have a really nice beach house if I made a horror movie." They seem to be very popular. I just don't think it's my thing.

Twenty to thirty years ago, who was making documentary films? Nobody.

Well, relatively few people. It was an art form that had limited theatrical distribution, if any at all. Some television distribution, but relatively small audiences regardless. And in the intervening years it's become more and more popular with a lot of people.

I'm very interested in film making. It's telling a story, fiction or non-fiction. I have been filmed quite a lot. Contrary to popular belief, filming isn't glamorous. It can be wearingly repetitious, as the same shot is taken over and over again.
