The best quote in all of film and literature history is probably the infamous “sand” quote from Star Wars Episode II: “I don’t like sand. It’s coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere. Not like here. Here everything is soft and smooth.”
“That’ll do, Pig” from Babe is also right up there, but it just narrowly misses out. It all has to do with the line delivery.
In this section, I will attempt to discuss similar important questions regarding film, music and literature, such as ‘Why is Terrence Howard still a thing?’, ‘How come Harry Potter does not recognise Snape’s handwriting in The Half Blood Prince book?’ and ‘WHY HASN’T RORY AND JESS GOTTEN TOGETHER IN GILMORE GIRLS?!’
I’m just kidding. At least I think I am.
