G is for Great Movie Speeches

Happy Monday, and welcome back to the Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

Today I'm inspired by this short compilation of inspirational speeches from forty movies. The video's creator, Matthew Belinkie, did a phenomenal job of putting the scenes together. You can find a transcript of the video as well as some other information from Belinkie here. Enjoy!



My haiku for today is up at the Pulitzer Remix site. You can find it here. Again, many thanks to those of you who have been reading and commenting. I'm very grateful!


Wishing you all an inspirational Monday. ☺

  27. Not only did I like these speeches, I was very much impressed at the work it must have taken to string them all together. Pretty cool.

  29. Nothing beats an epic movie speech!! I love any one of them that take place in the locker room at half time when the underdog needs a good talking to!
