  1. Morning Watch Mojo, interesting list. Makes for a good debate 😉

  2. When Harry meet Sally best dialogue alon with pulp fiction my two favourites for dialogue hence pulp fiction should be higher!

  3. Nice list, makes for a good list of movies to watch. I recently saw Molly's Game, I found the dialogue very powerful, even difficult to follow for me (not having English as mother tongue).

  4. Mean Girls has great comedy dialogue. If that were to be a list 🙂

  5. The silence of the lambs? WHERE’S THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS??!!!

  6. it is a joke that only one Tarantino film is on here and it is number 10. the other films weren't even in the honorable mentions

  7. I don't know who voted, but all of the honorable mentions deserved to be in this list than a few in here. Not saying they're not good, but I just disagree.

  13. No David Mamet? Not even an honorable mention?

  14. 12 Angry Men was so good. My favorite of Hollywood's golden age.

  15. I wholeheartedly agree with this list though I do want to add it for me personally the Oceans trilogy specifically the one with Brad Pitt, George Clooney, & Matt Damon.

  16. Casablanca is so overrated

  17. The Big Lebowski as honorable mention and they show the only monologue in the movie.

  18. Funny how is probably my favorite movie line and I quote it at least once per month

  19. Top 10 Science Fiction Movies with the Best Dialogue please, Ms. Rebecca.

  22. In bruges and No Country for Old Men should be on this personally

  23. Clerks or Clerks 2????

  24. Nah the best dialogue is Tommy wiseau saying this in the room.
    "Come on! This is bulls**t"

  25. Best Comedy Dialogue? I'd nominate Chasing Amy
    "What's a Nubian?"
    "… I was forever chasing Amy."

  26. Where is "Citizen Kane"????? The dialogue goes so well with the story telling.

  27. John Carpenter's HALLOWEEN
