Top 5 Movie Quotes From ... Men In Black

"Two posts in one day?" I hear you cry? Well, actually I can't, no-one's been on the site yet so it'd be rather difficult to get that sort of a reaction from a crowd of zero. Anyway, lets move past the awkwardness and away from the chirping crickets and move into the point of this post. So as i made clear earlier today, i will be attempting to release two reviews per week, one on Tuesday and one on Thursday. I also mentioned that i will be posting a monthly Top 5 Quotes List. Well you lucky people animals, insects or whoever else has the misfortune to be reading this, today is the first edition of said list.

At random i have picked Men in Black as this month's subject. Now i had been considering posting the quotes straight into the article but then I thought to myself:

"I have a whole website. Why not add it in somewhere else to add more content?"

But then i realised that would require time and effort so I'm sticking to my original plan. So, without further ado, here we have my Top 5 Favourite Quotes from the film Men in Black.


5. J and K talk about love lost.

Agent J: "You know what they say. It's better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all."

Agent K: "Try it."


4. J about the scope of MIB technology.

Agent J: "Unlimited technology from the whole universe, and we cruise 'round in a Ford P.O.S."


3. K about the whereabouts of Elvis.

Agent J: "You do know Elvis is dead, right?"

Agent K: "No, Elvis is not dead. He just went home."


2. Z about MIB operating procedures.

Agent Z: "You'll dress only in attire specially sanctioned by MIB special services. You'll conform to the identity we give you, eat where we tell you, live where we tell you. From now on you'll have no identifying marks of any kind. You'll not stand out in any way. Your entire image is crafted to leave no lasting memory with anyone you encounter. You're a rumour, recognisable only as deja vu and dismissed just as quickly. You don't exist; you were never even born. Anonymity is your name. Silence your native tongue. You're no longer part of the System. You're above the System. Over it. Beyond it. We're "them." We're "they." We are the Men in Black."


1. K on human nature.

James Edwards: "Why the big secret? People are smart. They can handle it."

Agent K: "A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky dangerous animals and you know it. Fifteen hundred years ago everybody knew the Earth was the center of the universe. Five hundred years ago, everybody knew the Earth was flat, and fifteen minutes ago, you knew that humans were alone on this planet. Imagine what you'll know tomorrow."


There we have it folks, one bored mans opinion on the best lines from a 20 year old movie. And now friends, It's time for me to quit my ramblings for today. Tune in on Tuesday for my exciting review of James Bond Dr. No, a film so old i'm seriously debating whether i even need a spoiler warning?
