To celebrate TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: OUT OF THE SHADOWS crawling out of the dark and into cinemas everywhere on 9 June 2016, Paramount Pictures Australia has curated a list of favourite catch phrases in quotable film history.
From classic Disney animated features to more modern fare, from Dorothy first landing in the Land of oz through to Arnie reminding us of his imminent return, movie quotes are a shorthand language that remind us all we share a common lingo through pop culture and the cinematic experience of sitting in darkened rooms and watching history happen in a form we can turn into a GIF later.
Which is exactly what is happening below, with a series of 21 difference catchphrases from the last century of cinema and television. Don’t forget to sound off on your own favourite catchphrases in the comments section below, and be kind if yours isn’t included here.
