50 Great Movie Quotes From A Millennial's Favorite Movies

Movies always have one specific line that sticks out to me.

Movies have always been a big part of my life. They’re not only a form of entertainment but a way to connect with people and make memories. Some of my greatest nights with friends and family have been spent either paying to go to an old movie theater, or staying in with popcorn, PJs, and junk food; sitting on a comfy couch with blankets and watching a film. With great movies comes great scenes, amount and many great scenes have memorable lines. I am someone who very much enjoys repeating movie lines. That being said I have accumulated a number of lines that have become my absolute favorites, and just so happen to be memorized and loved by many. Do any of these sound familiar?

A Playlist From The iPod Of A Middle Schooler In 2007

I will always love you, Akon.

Something happened today that I never thought in a million years would happen. I opened up a drawer at my parents' house and I found my pink, 4th generation iPod Nano. I had not seen this thing since I graduated from the 8th grade, and the headphones have not left my ears since I pulled it out of that drawer. It's funny to me how music can take you back. You listen to a song and suddenly you're wearing a pair of gauchos, sitting on the bleachers in a gym somewhere, avoiding boys at all cost at your seventh grade dance. So if you were around in 2007 and feel like reminiscing, here is a playlist straight from the iPod of a middle schooler in 2007.
