Top Ten Horror/Science Fiction Movie Quotes Blogfest Part 2 - Science Fiction

Round 2 - ding ding ding!

And so here we are with part 2 of my horror/science fiction movie quotes. This time Science Fiction.

Now until I started listing quotes I had never thought of myself as a sci-fi fan...which was why I originally was going to have one list of both genres, as I figured that I wouldn't have enough sci-fi quotes for them to have their own list...clearly I was wrong. Again some are classic, some a fairly random. But I did notice that a certain actor kept cropping up. He already featured in my horror list and he shows up three times in my Sci-fi list!

So off we go again...

10. This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill - the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill - you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes. 

Morpheus - The Matrix (1999)

 9. I'll be back!

The Terminator - The Terminator (1984)

8. From the moment the invaders arrived, breathed our air, ate and drank, they were doomed. They were undone, destroyed, after all of man's weapons and devices had failed, by the tiniest creatures that God in his wisdom put upon this earth. By the toll of a billion deaths, man had earned his immunity, his right to survive among this planet's infinite organisms. And that right is ours against all challenges. For neither do men live nor die in vain. 

Narrator - War of the Worlds (2005)

7. Stans: Wow, what a s**thole. You live here?
    Noland: Oh, no. No. This is my summer home. I winter in the Riviera. The schools are so much nicer there. And the men... Ooh, la, la! By the way, you're welcome. 

Predators (2010)

6. Okay, now come up with a plan that doesn't involve your 10-year-old sister joining the Army! You got anything like that? 

Ray Ferrier - War of the Worlds (2005)

5. Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering. I sense much fear in you. 

Yoda - Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999)

4. Hold my pie. *man looks at him blankly* Sir, hold it or wear it.

Detective Del Spooner - I, Robot (2004)

3. *holds up badge* See that? NYPD, means I will Knock Your Punka** Down!

James Edwards - Men in Black (1997)

2. Agent J: Let's put it on.
    Kevin Brown: What?
    Agent J: The last suit you'll ever wear...again.

Men in Black II (2002)

And so here comes my number one most memorable sci-fi quote. I once saw on the Internet, somewhere out there in cyber space, someone asking for someone to explain this quote to them. In my opinion if you don't understand this quote in the context of this film then you haven't much chance of understanding any of the film. It is difficult for me to explain...but if you have seen this film...and you understand it...then you will understand what I mean when I say that this quote is more or less the whole basis of the film. I know what I mean, hopefully you will too!

1. There is no spoon.

Boy - The Matrix (1999)


Ellie said...

LOL. Yes. If you don't get the spoon quote you've NO hope of getting The Matrix. Do remember Richard Burton as the voice of the narrator in War of the Worlds. What a voice he had!

A fantastic list. Thank you for taking part.

Good list! Wish I'd remembered War of the Worlds - I listened to the tape of it incessantly when it came out. Richard Burton: 'No-one would have believed..." ooooh *shivers*

mshatch said...

great list - boy now that I'm reading there's so many movies I completely forgot about!

Donna Hole said...

There is no spoon! Great line. But, I've seen all these, and was able to visulalize them all. Wow, my kind of movie quotes . .


Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Good picks! Glanced at your other list as well. Shaun of the Dead shows up a lot.

Elaine AM Smith said...

I love both quotes from WotW. I had to fight off using "Come with me if you want to live" and "I'll be back." There are ten quotes in TERMINATOR easy ;)

M Pax said...

I could I forget Terminator! Wonderful list.

Abby Minard said...

Ooh great list! And yes, the Matrix one is a classic. Also, every time I have deja vu I always say, "A glitch in the matrix". Can't help it.

Kimberly said...

This is a fantastic list too! I'm with MSHatch, I've forgotten so many great movies.

Fun quotes, thanks for sharing.

And good luck with the A-Z blogging challenge! I'm going to be giving it a shot this year as well.

Budd said...

I was going to use one from MIB 2. the one with the guys in the locker in bus station.

Lisa Potts said...

Love the spoon line. Definitely a good one.

Arlee Bird said...

Two interesting lists. I guess I'm going to have to watch The Matrix again-- I didn't get the quote. But I'm like that sometimes. And I really liked the Matrix series.

Heather M. Gardner said...

I should have used The Matrix too. Great lists.

iZombie said...

great list in two parts... yoda and the matrix very memorable.

Thank you for being part of this, it was a great time and success.

Monkey Migraine said...

Agreed about the spoon quote. It's hard for me to even understand how you wouldn't get it. There is no spoon, because the Matrix isn't real. Duh.

And I like how you used full quotes. I thought I had to limit it to one or two lines. Mine would have been bigger if I hadn't. Good list.

Margo Berendsen said...

"For neither do men live nor die in vain." Love it! (though this movie still gives me nightmares!)

Okay, I'm definitely going to have to watch the Matrix again - it's been too long for me to remember, but I can't let your challenge slide!

Alexis said...

Nice list! Nice to see someone else with an I, Robot quote. i almost chose yours or when he is talking to the cat "Look, I understand you have experienced a loss, but this relationship just can't work. I mean, you're a cat. I'm black. I'm not going to be hurt again"

Maurice Mitchell said...

Great set of quotes. Anything Will Smith says is great, but these are two of my favorites along with "Welcome to Earth."

Reid Kemper said...

It's nice to see War of the Worlds quotes.
