The 10 best monologues of the past decade

Jarod Warren from TheMoviePool writes: Every actor, veteran or amateur, longs for the opportunity to opine on the various observations on the life and situations surrounding them. Shakespeare's works are chock full of such emotional diatribes delivered by a single individual either to an audience of characters or to the audience themselves.

Though the motivations may differ between each, sometimes inspirational, historical, flashback, observational, or just to deliver one hell of a threat, each holds a place in our minds and hearts even when the celluloid treatment as a whole has faded. These are not just the best monologues in the past 10 years of film. They're the best captures of the human condition in all its beautiful, confounding, and terrifying glory.

That Joker speech still gives me the chills when I hear it, and V for Vendetta are filled with great lines and speeches. It's hard to choose just one from it.

Thats a Very Valiant Valuation!

"Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin van-guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition."

I love it! This movie rises above in my favorites. It's been awhile since I've seen it but I was enamored with it.

Another note, I loved the typographical layout of the video. Gorgeous. Not only do I get to enjoy wonderful usage of the English language, I have the honors of seeing it tied into my love of type. Thanks for the link!

Some of the best monologues in V were not even given by a actor you could see in the film, like the letter's EV recieved while in her false prison of understanding...

A respark of interest in a film can have on you.
I mean this article alone made me look back at one film in particular V for Vendetta and I have learned things about the cast and writers that I would never have known.
Like how Hugo Wallace Weaving (Mr.Anderson from the Matrix) starred in it as V!

Not to disrespect the other films in which this article features but V is a favorite of mine!

Don't worry V is one of my all time favorite films. I watch it on a very regular basis and have even read the comic several times over.

I'm not even that big on Spike Lee but Ed Norton's NYC rant makes that damn movie!

A few of these I haven't seen. Need to catch up. But love that Joker.

The Exorcism Movie Review - Fortress of Solitude

Possession films are a dime a dozen with tons of motion pictures about people spewing pea soup when those pesky demons occupy and live rent free in their bodies.

My Anxiety Personified In "Inside Out 2" - Review | Everyone Gaming

Inside Out 2 has got to be the animation movie of the year for me so far. It had everything I wanted from the original and so much more I never could have anticipated. From the very first opening scene with that nostalgic, wholesome piano keys of the theme sound from the first movie, it was like my soul was transported back into the feelings the first movie brought about while bringing me wholly into the world of the sequel.
