All of my regular readers know that I am a huge movie buff and one part of the moviews that I love are epic movie speeches. From Braveheart to Rocky Balboa here are my top 10 movie speeches. Many of these speeches I know by heart.
If I miss something off of the list, let me know below and we can compare notes.
10 Lord of the Rings – The Return of the King – Vitto Mortensen as the reluctant king, Aragorn marshalling the troops at the gates of Mordor.
8 Armageddon – Charlton Heston’s introduction explaining what happened to the dinosaurs in this Bruce Willis starring action role.
8a Armageddon – The President tells the world that troubles a coming
7 Rocky Balboa – Sylvester Stallone to his son about winning and taking responsibility.
6 Braveheart – Mel Gibson marshalling the troops in Medieval Scotland as the Scottish hero, William Wallace.
5 Independence Day – Bull Pullman as the President, firing up his amateur airforce pilots taking on alien invaders led by Will Smith.
3 The Dark Knight – Gary Oldman telling his son why they need to chase Batman.
2 Any Given Sunday – Al Pacino prepping his football team in the classic Peace By Inches speech.
