1 real speech and 4 movie speeches – how’s that for taste?
The American president assures the rest of the world that, as usual, we will be saving their ungrateful asses. Although, I guess they threw that crazy Russian guy into the mix to make the movie all multi-national. And they had the token female pilot, to make it all multi-sexual.
2. Any Given Sunday
It takes Al Pacino and copious amounts of swearing to make an inspirational speech fucking awesome instead of incredibly cheesy.
3. 25th Hour
Edward Norton tells pretty much every classification of people that you can imagine to go fuck themselves. This is one angry guy.
4. Robert Kennedy – Indianapolis, Indiana – April 4, 1968
Robert Kennedy bears the burden of telling a predominantly black audience that Martin Luther King has been assassinated. What’s most amazing about this is that he didn’t plan any of it – he was just an amazing orator. With French subtitles, for good measure.
5. The 13th Warrior
A Viking death chant. You kinda have to watch the throw-down that comes afterward to appreciate the speech itself. If you’re going to worship a religion, at least make it something awesome like whatever the hell it is these guys worship.
