Here are some movie quotes that I’ve decided to work on for the project! Surprisingly, all my quotes came from animated movies. I really didn’t expect that, but I guess I’m just a really big fan of them ヾ(´∀｀○)ﾉ Right now there’s a lot of quotes included (it’s just too difficult to cut down!), I’ll experiment with different designs before deciding on what to go with :)
1. Wreck it Ralph: “I am bad and that is good, I will never be good and that’s not bad”
This quote really stuck after I watched the movie, most probably because of how hilariously contradicting it is and how it fits Ralph so well. A heartwarming movie, it is :’)
Spirited Away: “I finally get a bouquet of flowers and it’s a goodbye present”
My (or everyone’s) all-time favourite movie: Spirited Away. There are way too many feelings attached to this movie and the movie has been a great source of inspiration and motivation personally.
This quote is really depressing. I chose it, instead of other more famous quotes from spirited away, because of how heavy a feeling it evoked in one’e heart. Everyone experienced departures one way or another in their lives, be it moving house, changing schools, or even migrating elsewhere. We are not unfamiliar with farewells, yet we still feel as affected as the very first experience.
Finding Nemo: “Fish are friends, not food”
Finding Nemo! True-blue childhood movie that I’d watched a million times.
This quote was extremely memorable. I remember being terrified when the sharks appear, yet laughed my head off when I saw how eager the sharks were to make friends with the fishes.
Frozen: “The cold never bothered me anyway”
I love Frozen, not even kidding. And this quote is too sassy to not include it. I really enjoyed the entire movie sequence for “let it go” because I found it highly relatable, and also happy for Elsa for finally being able to release the mental distress that has been troubling her since she was a child.
Howl’s Moving Castle: “May all your bacon burn”
This quote was said by Calcifer, a fire demon is a magical contract with a wizard, Howl. He is a very powerful creature himself, with a great deal of magical ability, though cannot move beyond the confines of the hearth in which Howl keeps him without the wizard’s help. He provides power to Howl’s castle, such as heating the bath, strengthening the threshold and moving the castle from place to place.
For a demon with such a great amount of magic, Calcifer could well have said highly destructive curses. Yet he chose one that was so trivial and insignificant — to burn your bacon. This really portrayed Calcifer as a kind-hearted, innocent ‘demon’, seemingly unfitting yet ironically adorable.
Howl’s Moving Castle: “I see no point in living if I can’t be beautiful”
Context: Howl was taking a bath but his magic potions (which changes the colour of his hair) were mixed up by the female protagonist, Sophie, (a self-employed cleaner in his house). The unaware Howl used the wrong concoction and end up having a terrible hair colour (terrible in his opinion). Distraught by his tragic appearance, he had a literal melt down.
I literally LOLed at this quote because of how vain it is, and how the character (Howl) was saying it so earnestly while breaking down.
Look, he’s literally melting down!
Ponyo: “I’ll let a fish lick me if it’d get me out of this wheelchair”
This is a very trivial quote from the movie, said by an old lady from the elderly home. I chose it merely because of how quirky it sounds and the imagery it conjures up in one’s image.
But here’s one cute lil Ponyo:
and one ugly one:
Moana: “If you wear a dress and have an animal sidekick, you’re a princess”
I watched Moana thrice in the cinema!!! That’s how much I enjoyed the movie. This quote was said my Maui (the big guy) to Moana. It was a very astute observation, made even funnier by the fact that Disney is mocking themselves through him, since practically every Disney princess wears a dress, and has a animal sidekick.
Wow this has been a great spam of images and gifs — can’t help it when one loves the movies that much! This research has been a trip down the memory lane, and a perfectly enjoyable one for that matter. Looking forward to working on these quotes!!
