Are movies becoming less quotable?

Since about 1978, yes. smile


The 80's were very quotable with a few gems in the 90's.

Compared to the scripts in the 60s and 70s, no they werent. It wasnt a desert but 80s 90s were nothing like the quality of dialogue/lines of previous decades. And it has got steadily worse.
By today's standards, the 80s and 90s were fkn shakespeare!

I notice that most parked cars have nothing piled onto the seats, so why is it when you get a ride from someone there is always a pile of odds and ends on the passenger seat? And the person giving you a ride will either look bewildered and hastily throw it in the backseat or just tell you to "toss that anywhere."

Questioning the inconsistencies of a female is like questioning the inconsistencies of a Star Wars fan.

Why is Bill ALWAYS such a Cutie Patootie?

Why does Kev look like the studly Steve Gerrard?

Why is Tall Guy so tall and so handsome?

Why are the UKers at FSM so amazing?

Finally, when are they all going to send me a first class round trip ticket to the UK and house me in 5 star hotels and request my Christmas gift list?

Why isn't there a Hollywood film production hard at work on a docudrama glorifying the "gilets jaunes" of France?

Are movies becoming less quotable?

Not only are movies becoming less quotable, they are becoming less literate; perhaps not literate at all.

This is a worthy question deserving of its own topic, not that anyone will start such a thread. frown

Self-serve ettiquete: After you pump your own gas, or scan and bag items at a store, should you thank yourself aloud for shopping? If you don't, should you report yourself for poor customer service?

.....what happens when you drop a cat with a buttered slice of bread strapped to it's back?

Okay, no answers BUT I think it’s been established that they hover just above the ground constantly rotating around their nose-to-tail axis.

I mostly agree with you, Bill, except I'd give it 'til as late as 1980 - gotta include Caddy Shack, The Blues Brothers and the penultimate - Airplane!.
