Yesterday I posted my Top Ten Tuesday post which was a list of movie/book quotes – today, I’ll post the films that the quotes were taken from:

 

1.“Oh, it’s quite simple. If you are a friend, you speak the password, and the doors will open.” – Gandalf, Lord of the Rings, JRR Tolkien

2. “Inconceivable” – The Princess Bride by William Goldman

3. “God creates dinosaurs. God destroys dinosaurs. God creates man. Man destroys god. Man creates dinosaurs.” / “Dinosaurs eat man. Woman inherits the earth.” – this is from Jurassic Park (not sure if it’s a quote from the book – I doubt it)

4. “No one would have believed, in the middle of the 20th century, that human affairs were being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man’s.”  This is from War of the Worlds by HG Wells.

5. “Robert Neville looked out over the new people of the earth. He knew he did not belong to them; he knew that, like the vampires, he was anathema and black terror to be destroyed. And, abruptly, the concept came, amusing to him even in his pain. … Full circle. A new terror born in death, a new superstition entering the unassailable fortress of forever. I am legend.” – This is from I am Legend by Richard Matheson.

6. “They say once you grow crops somewhere, you have officially ‘colonised’ it. So technically, I colonised Mars.  In your face, Neil Armstrong!”  – The Martian by Andy Weir

7. “I’ll get you, my pretty, and your little dog too! – Wizard of Oz by Frank L Baum

8. “the children of the night. What sweet music they make.” – Bram Stoker’ Dracula – the movie version (not sure if this is a quote from the book too)

9. “I need your clothes, your boots and your motorcyle” – this is a move quote – Terminator 2.

10 Do you have a favourite quote that you fall into automatically??

    I suspected that 3 might be from Jurassic Park, but I was not sure: it’s great to have that confirmed! 🙂

    Dracula and Terminator 2 were the ones that I was missing! Thanks for these, they’re great 😁

    I could probably fill a notebook with favorite Arnold quotes, with Terminator/Terminator 2 just the tip of the iceberg 😀

    I cannot believe I didn’t get the Dracula quote 😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      I’m not sure if that was in both the book and the film – I think it may have been.

    You know I thought 9 was a Terminator quote but I wasn’t 100% sure LOL
