Imagining Classic Movie Lines in The Modern World

Reboot, remake, recycle, rinse, repeat, it's the name of the modern Hollywood game. If you can't remake it, reboot it. If you can't reboot it, re-imagine it. If you can't re-imagine it, just steal all its good parts and make your own film anyways. It's how the world operates these days, and so I thought it appropriate to just take some of the all time great movie quotes and imagine if they were rewrote into the modern world. Let's see what we can come up with.


CASABLANCA

"Of all the forums in all of the internet, she logs into mine."


BRAVEHEART

"Alba gu bràth! RT @Wallace4Scotz ...they can take our lives, but they'll never take OUR FREEDOM!"  ReTweet by DrunkenScotsman42 via web



SUNSET BLVD.

"I am big! It's the smart phone screens that got small!"




PLANET OF THE APES

"Take your stinkin' hands off me, you damn obsessive Facebook poker!"




GLADIATOR

"My username is Maximus Decimus Meridius, Commander of the armies of Northern Azeroth, General of the guild Funki Munkies, loyal servant to the true Emperor, Leeroy Jenkins. Father to a failed raid, husband to a discontinued account. And I will have my vengeance, in this avatar or the next!"






Now it's your turn. Take a few of your own favorite movie quotes and throw a modern spin on them!

"E.T. tweet home."

Really, it was too easy to resist.

BAHAHAHA!! This is genius. The Casablanca one should be a blogpost title.

I tried to make one with I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse." and a friend request, but failed miserably. I'm clearly not as funny as I thought I was.

I especially like the Casablanca one, too...

In "Capitalism: A Love Story", Michael Moore turns that Godfather quote into "I'm going to offer you a loan you can't refuse", and it was actually quite funny...

MWUHAHAHAHAHA That was hilarious! The Wayans brothers would have a field day with a concept like that. Maybe you should pitch it to them...

I particularly like the POTA one...those darned pokers have made my life miserable! (grins) Speaking of which, have you checked out the latest in the series. This one's the prequel to all the rest http://www.youtube.com/user/ApesWillRiseUAE I'd love to see your adapted lines from that movie!

"I see reanimated dead people."

"Someone reminded me I once said "Greed is good". Now it seems it's legal."

(Oh wait...they already did that one...)

"Mrs. Robinson, you're trying to sext me, aren't you?"



Fun post, 'Varn.
