Movies and Hollywood have probably affected your life more than you know or realize. There are those people who pride themselves on not being affected by popular culture or the media, but in reality that is very hard to do. Almost everybody these days knows who Britney Spears is. And while pop culture stars influence us in very subconscious ways, movies do the same. Possibly the most memorable part of any movie is the quotes. Kids repeat them to each other between classes, co-workers toss them back and forth at the water cooler, and many times they become so ingrained that people who never even saw the movie could quote just as much of it as people who have. While some of these quotes are rather meaningless in the grand scheme of things e.g. Luke, I am your father (and yes, we know, that is a misquote, but it is also the version that everybody is familiar with), others are quite able to stand on their own. In this list we are going to try to focus on the quotes that fit the criteria of “awesome” and “unforgettable”. And that brings us to our list of 25 unforgettably awesome movie quotes!
