Film Speeches

Postby Wasted. » Fri Apr 29, 11 2:41 pm

Charlie, geeza who witnessed some rude-demz plannning a prank on the headmaster along with another guy, is a poor boy attending Harvard school. The headmaster is aware they both witnessed the incident, and summons them to appear before their 'court' on Monday. Charlie spends the weekend looking after a blind ex-lieutenant (Al Pacino), during which the man tries to suicide - and Charlie stops him. The other guy who witnessed the incident has a rich father who donates monies to the school regularly and is basically excused from the entire incident on the grounds that he has poor eye sight.

The Headmaster is aware of Charlies financial situation and offers him a free scholarship to advance to harvard university if he complies with all his demands.

And the brilliant message about war survivors in what later was lost in translation with it's sequels and became a series known for it's action.

Not a speech, but a powerful moment nonetheless from 12 Angry Men.

Also, great idea for a thread.

Rambo's speech in the first one is my all time favorite.

I also like this one from Wall Street

The entire speech from Atticus Finch in To Kill A Mockingbird

and this controversial one from 25th hour, executed well by Norton

Everybody knows about it, it's not a big speech but I think the transition is so beautifully crafted. I was shaking when I first watched this scene. The characters MAY have moved on from it, but I didn't.

its much more intense when you realize how much of a secret good guy Denzel's character tried to be throughout the film
