    "This one is an oldie but a goodie. I remember watching this film with my dad when I was young and of course I couldn't understand a lick of what was going on. I just recently rewatched this as an adult and I swear I felt the trembling in my soul at Freeman's monologue at the very end when he escapes to freedom. I won't spoil what he said but man it was so moving I swear I cried a little!"

    "I personally think that the whole king's monologue before the great battle type of speech is somewhat of a cliche but I'm not one to deny the effect of a good monologue. I'm sure that Aragorn's speech did in fact inspire the good people of Middle Earth to fight and live another day, and we can thank him for the survival of many of our LoTR favorites. Hehe. "

    "Ahhh a monologue in a Tarantino film is really no surprise but I did enjoy Samuel L. Jackson's killing monologue here. Senseless violence and a senseless speech? Maybe. But what made this monologue stellar was Samuel's sheer star quality that makes anybody and everybody just shut the heck up and listen. Oh man, I can't wait to rewatch the movie again!"

    "Don Corleone is a fictional character but I swear I get chills up my spine when I watch the Godfather films. Maybe its the old quality of the films or the superb acting skills of the cast, but I truly feel that it is one of the most lowkey menacing films ever. Add Don Corleone's intro monologue and BAM you're in his world now. Such a great classic!"

    "Ellyn Burstyn was completely and utterly heartbreaking in this film, and I was just gutted when she did her monologue about her meaningless life where she only had her television game show spot to look forward to. I swear she was the heart of the whole film! I'm even tearing up a little just remembering it! :("

    "Man, I know this is a pretty old movie but it really still is one of my favorites. Robin Williams is practically one of the kings of monologues in my book and his talent as an actor is unmatched. I think that his monologue here about life is one that many kids today stand to learn from. A must-watch."

    "This movie actually stumped me. I didn't read the book before I watched it and I was really fascinated by the whole movie. Rosamund Pike's monologue here was just stellar and it really made up almost the bulk of the intensity of the movie. It was so breathtaking and amazing and just wow!"
