Frankly, You Should Give a Damn About Hollywood’s 100 Favorite Movie Quotes

Your favorite films are likely a perfect storm of great stories, well-written characters, and quotable lines that stand the test of time. Roy Scheider’s delivery of “You’re gonna need a bigger boat” in Jaws (1975), Marlon Brando’s “I’m going to make him an offer he can’t refuse” in The Godfather (1972), Robert De Niro’s “You talkin’ to me?” in Taxi Driver (1976), and Humphrey Bogart’s “Here’s looking at you, kid” from Casablanca (1942) have all become iconic moments in pop culture history and are among the top 100 movie quotes of all time, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

More than 1600 actors, directors, studio executives, writers, agents, and other Hollywood players were surveyed and asked to share their favorite quotes from film history, some of which are included in the video above. The number one quote on the list is “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn” from Gone With the Wind (1939). According to The Hollywood Reporter, that line was almost taken out of the film just two months before it hit theaters because the censors took issue with the profanity. “The producers came up with 22 variations of the line,” THR writes, “including ‘Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a whoop,’ before the censors relented and allowed the ‘damn’ to stay.”

The list as it stands is well-balanced in terms of scope, with various genres and decades represented throughout. “Chewie we’re home” from Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015) made it into the ranking at number 89, undoubtedly because of its inclusion at the end of the trailer for the highly anticipated film. Films including The Wizard of Oz, Casablanca, Star Wars, Jerry Maguire, and The Godfather trilogy hold several spots in the top 100, and actors including Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, Dustin Hoffman, and Robin Williams appear more than once for different roles.

Head over to The Hollywood Reporter to see if your favorite quote made the list.

A hidden image illustration by Gergely Dudás, a.k.a. Dudolf

Gergely Dudás is at it again. The Hungarian illustrator, who is known to his fans as “Dudolf,” has spent the past several years delighting the internet with his hidden image illustrations, going back to the time he hid a single panda bear in a sea of snowmen in 2015. In the years since, he has played optical tricks with a variety of other figures, including sheep and Santa Claus and hearts and snails. For his latest brainteaser, which he posted to both his Facebook page and his blog, Dudolf is asking fans to find a pet ghost named Sheet in a field of white bunny rabbits.

As we’ve learned from his past creations, what makes this hidden image difficult to find is that it looks so similar to the objects surrounding it that our brains just sort of group it in as being “the same.” So you’d better concentrate.

If you’ve scanned the landscape again and again and can’t find Sheet to save your life, go ahead and click here to see where he’s hiding.

The Most Searched Shows on Netflix in 2017, By State

Orange is the New Black is the new black, at least as far as Netflix viewers are concerned. The women-in-prison dramedy may have premiered in 2013, but it’s still got viewers hooked. Just as they did in 2017, took a deep dive into Netflix analytics using Google Trends to find out which shows people in each state were searching Netflix for throughout the year. While there was a little bit of crossover between 2016 and 2017, new series like American Vandal and Mindhunter gave viewers a host of new content. But that didn’t stop Orange is the New Black from dominating the map; it was the most searched show in 15 states.

Coming in at a faraway second place was American Vandal, a new true crime satire that captured the attention of five states (Illinois, Kansas, Massachusetts, Minnesota, and Wisconsin). Even more impressive is the fact that the series premiered in mid-September, meaning that it found a large and rabid audience in a very short amount of time.

Folks in Alaska, Colorado, and Oregon were all destined to be disappointed; Star Trek: Discovery was the most searched-for series in each of these states, but it’s not yet available on Netflix in America (you’ve got to get CBS All Access for that, folks). Fourteen states broke the mold a bit with shows that were unique to their state only; this included Big Mouth in Delaware, The Keepers in Maryland, The OA in Pennsylvania, GLOW in Rhode Island, and Black Mirror in Hawaii.
