IMDb Poll Board Favorite Quote From a Movie
The IMDb poll board members have chosen their favorite movie quotes. Which of these do you prefer? Discuss here
Iconic Movie Quotations
Many movie quotes became iconic because they could adapt to everyday situations that justified quoting the film... starting with the film itself Indeed, some quotes were even more legendary because they seemed to have an existence of their own "before" the film and entered pop culture as "quotes within quotes", or simply put "quotations". Whether quotes whose core-statement was taken from an original speaker or featuring a quotation from the actual speaker referring to himself or someone else, the quotation to vote for is in bold letters. Some classic lines were used in an initial context then reprised for a more impactful effect, they can be considered as quotations but they don't exactly fit the criteria of the poll, so no "there's no place like home" or "Hasta la vista baby". Which of these cinematic quotations is the most iconic? After voting, I say "discuss the list here"

Seminal Films for Baby Boomers
If you happen to have been born between 1946 and 1964 or thereabouts (and if not, you'll just have to pretend :-) ), then you should recall many if not all of these films. Which title do you recall most fondly? Which film perhaps even influenced you in some way in a time when social values, political views, music taste, sexual prejudices, drug use, race relations, respect for state authority, women's rights and so many other entrenched views were being questioned without quite knowing what this would lead to. Limiting the list: To keep this list faintly manageable, it ranges from the early sixties which saw the first boomers in their teens (so no Rebel Without a Cause (1955) or West Side Story (1961)), to the mid seventies before subject matter turned to mid-life crisis (Kramer vs. Kramer (1979), The Big Chill (1983), Field of Dreams (1989)) and post Vietnam coping (Apocalypse Now (1979), Coming Home (1978), The Deer Hunter (1978)).
