Lazy Sunday Movies: Greatest Speeches Evah

Posted on: May 25, 2014

Good Sunday, Widdershins, and I hope that this finds you in the midst of a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.  I spent yesterday at a service with a number of good speakers, and that reminded me of some of those wonderful movie speeches and monologues. Some are wonderful.  Some are downright chilling.  Some make us want to stand up and cheer, others to stand up and run.  Some are short.  Some are long. Whatever they are, and by whomever they are given – all are memorable.  Please share your faves as well as your random thoughts in this otherwise open thread.

(1)  Wall Street, Michael Douglas

(2) Network, Peter Finch

(3) On the Waterfront, Marlon Brando

(4) Thirteen Days, Michael Fairman

(5) Braveheart, Mel Gibson

Congrats to my LSU Tigers baseball team. They won the SEC championship today!

@4: Speech! Speech!

Hell, neither side got a run in until the 8th inning when LSU got a homer with one guy on base leading to final score of 2-0. Oh! They beat Florida.

It’s Memorial Day, so we must do this one:
