    AFI's Top 100 Movie Quotes (Talkback)

    Like This Thread!
    Tonight, CBS aired yet another "Top 100" special; this time it was the top 100 quotes. This is the talkback for that 3-hour special.

    Not surprisingly, "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn" got #1. "I'll make him an offer he can't refuse" was #2, and "I coulda been a contender" was #3.

    It was also cool to see where some quotes originated from, like "What......a.....dump!" Overall a good special; I was proud that I knew where most of the quotes came from, and there were only a scant few that I didn't recognize (such as "La-di-dah" from Annie Hall. Uh.... THAT deserved to be on the list?!).

    Eh, I think they're enjoyable if you don't consider them as anything definitive or intellectual. Of course the AFI probably intends them to be, so in their intention they fail. I still find the lists like this to be a fun little novelty though.

    Eh

    I'm getting the weird feeling that the AFI likes the movie "Casablanca".

    A pretty average AFI list; in that it was enjoyable to watch, but not very original or containing anything besides the obvious.
