Badass Movie One-Liners (inspired by Molly Weasley)

The new Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows trailer, which includes a clip of Molly Weasley vs. Bellatrix Lestrange, had me all but jumping up and down in nerdy enthusiasm last night. So without further ado, I give you a list of badass movie one-liners, inspired by J.K. Rowling's awesomest mom ever. Anyway...

"NOT MY DAUGHTER, YOU BITCH!" -Molly Weasley, future Deathly Hallows movie

"I don't believe in no-win scenarios" -Kirk from Star Trek

 "The name's Bond...James Bond" -James Bond, from James Bond (duh)

"My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die" -The Princess Bride

"I'll make you an offer you can't refuse" -The Godfather

Often, badass lines are accompanied by equally badass actions. For example, the "Luke I am your father" card would not be nearly as effective if Darth Vader hadn't just cut off his son's hand. So the whole line is more like *hand chop* *scream* *Darth Vader says coolly* "No, Luke...I am your father." *audience horrified gasp*. Likewise, these next few...

"For Frodo" *charges the gates of Mordor* -Aragorn

"There is only one Lord of the Ring...and he does not share power!" *throws himself off tower* -Gandalf

"YOU SHALL NOT PASS!" *slams down staff on tiny bridge* -more Gandalf

"Fly, you fools!" *falls and dies* -Gandalf again

"I find your lack of faith disturbing" *force choke* -Darth Vader

As you can see, Lord of the Rings has a lot of epic lines. They're epic movies. Same thing with Star Wars. I could keep listing these, but then this post would be really, really long and I would reveal myself to be even nerdier than you already think I am. ;) Besides, I kinda want to hear your favorite badass lines...

  1. Oooh, fun. Honestly the only thing that comes to my mind immediately is the Joker's pencil trick in The Dark Knight.

    "Ta-da! ...It's gone."

  5. Ah, the trailer does look so good! And I love badass lines... mmm... One of my favs?

    "I know what you're thinking. 'Did he fire six shots or only five?' Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?" -- Harry Callahan, "Dirty Harry"

  6. sooo this is the first time i have visited in your blog for a while sooo i thought i would post on the one that combines harry potter, lord of the rings, and star wars. sooo i agree. epic one liners would not be so epic without the actions before and after said epic line is said. oh. and hi =)
