Top Ten Horror/Science Fiction Movie Quotes Blogfest

Thanks to iZombie and Ellie Garratt for hosting the Top Ten Horror/Science Fiction Movie Quotes Blogfest!

The idea is to count down your top ten favorite quotes from horror or science fiction flicks. Mine are pretty short and sweet, and it was nearly impossible to keep it down to 10 because I could easily get 10 faves from just one movie, so spreading it out was a bit of a challenge (I adore Galaxy Quest - it's like a quote-a-palooza). These are in random order.


10. “There’s that word again, heavy. Why are things so heavy in the future? Is there a problem with the Earth’s gravitational pull?” (Doc Brown, Back to the Future)

9. “These are not the droids you’re looking for.” (Obiwan, Star Wars: A New Hope)

8. “That’s no moon. That’s a space station.” (Obiwan, Star Wars: A New Hope)

7. “I have been, and ever shall be, your friend. Live long and prosper.” (Spock, Star Trek II)

6. “Did you guys ever WATCH the show?” (Guy Fleegman, Galaxy Quest).

5. “I see you’ve managed to get your shirt off.” (Alexander Dane, Galaxy Quest).

4. “Whoever wrote this episode should die.” (Gwen DeMarco, Galaxy Quest).

3. “Payback’s a bitch, ain’t it?” (Russell Casse, Independence Day)

2. “Never give up, never surrender. (Jason Nesmith, Galaxy Quest)

1. “The First Rule of Zombieland: Cardio. When the zombie outbreak first hit, the first to go, for obvious reasons, were the fatties.” (Columbus, Zombieland)

(bonus: "Hasta la vista, baby!" (Terminator2))

There you go. Nothing intellectual, nothing long-winded, just some good fun. Now go check out the rest!

A fantastic list. I forgot all about Zombieland! That quote did make me laugh.

Thank you for taking part.

Let me guess: you are quite fond of Galaxy Quest and Star Wars? ;) I could have done the same with Terminator quotes.
Loved the quotes.

Great quotes! I almost used the bonus one you have.

Love BTTF- and that quote. Great quotes- I've noticed Will Smith is in a lot of sci fi stuff- love all of his movies!

Budd said...

with all the galaxy quest, no grabthor's hammer? I see you are a nesbitt fan.

Budd - actually more a Gwen DeMarco fan. "I have one job on this ship, it's stupid, but I'm going to do it!"

Excellent list! I used a Guy quote from Galaxy Quest as well...mine was a bit more long winded though.

iZombie said...

Awesome. I also forgot Galaxy Quest. I'm going to have to watch it again. So much fun and a great cast.

Margo Berendsen said...

I am absolutely ashamed after this blogfest that I have never seen Galaxy Quest! I shall remedy that immediately. Fortunately I knew all your others!

Reid Kemper said...

You should have made your list all quotes from Galaxy Quest. Good quotes!
