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"

What if Iago was a Woman?

For all that I'm a theatre major, I hardly ever talk about acting on this blog. But this project is so cool and fantastic and awesome and wicked that I just have to take a minute and tell you about it. What if Iago was a woman? For those of you who don't know, Iago is a villain in Shakespeare's tragedy Othello. He is considered one of the worst, most evil antagonists in all of Shakespeare.  Plot summary: Othello is a Moor, which in those days referred to someone from Africa. He, a black man, marries Desdemona, a white woman. Society flips its shit, but they can't exactly do anything because he's the General of the Venetian navy and there's a war on. Desdemona, unable to stay with her angry father, goes with Othello to Cyprus, which is in rebellion. A storm sinks the enemy navy and our good guys arrive safely. Iago, though, is not happy. Because Othello passed him over for promotion (and assorted other reasons that all amount to "I just want to fuck sh

Kiffe Kiffe Tomorrow by Faïza Guène, a YA Book By A Young Author

Review time! Kiffe Kiffe Tomorrow is a young adult novel by a young adult, so I was very interested to read it. There's also a #MuslimShelfSpace tag going around, and this review is a nod to that. The idea is that there's been a lot of stereotypes and anti-Muslim sentiment spread around, so buying and boosting books about and by Muslims can help educate people and break down harmful stereotypes.  The author is French with an Algerian background, and  Guène  wrote Kiffe Kiffe Tomorrow when she was in her late teens. Although the novel is not autobiographical, she shares many things with its main character. Doria, like her creator, is the child of immigrants and lives in poor suburban housing projects.   Guène   wrote that she realized girls like herself weren't really represented in books, and felt that Kiffe Kiffe Tomorrow was a way to tell the stories of people in the suburbs who are ignored by the elites of French literature. Plot: Life Sucks, Until It Doesn

King Arthur Sucks.

I wrote a review of The Greenstone Grail by Amanda Hemingway , in which I applauded the book for being the first Arthurian adaptation I had read that I didn't despise. I mean, how could I? Despite the book's other problems, it had aliens riding motherfucking dragons!!! Aliens! Dragons! Parallel universes!  After reading my review, one of my friends asked me why I hate Arthurian legend so much.  Well.  Perhaps one of the reasons I liked The Greenstone Grail 's take on the Holy Grail myth was because it was so different.  Most Arthurian adaptations fall along the same lines. It's the same damn story told almost the same damn way all the time. But  The Greenstone Grail took place in modern times, borrowing from the Holy Grail and Arthurian myths without making it so central to the plot that there was no room for other stuff like imagination.  Say whatever else you want about this book ( and believe me, I did ), it had imagination. Its main character can dimension-
