Not just Saturday nights, all of weekdays also raise the idea for entertainment by going to the nearest theatre. Over the course since its creation, Hollywood has done a great job at producing some very fine masterpieces. These movies strike well with their flawlessly written script and demeanor. Here we’ve listed some must read famous movie quotes from Boston.
1. Good Will Hunting
“Real loss is only possible when you love something more than you love yourself.”
No doubt, Good Will Hunting is a movie of emotions and teaches you to pull yourself together. The quote above symbolizes the character’s knowledge and his experience about the harsh realities of life.
Another quote is worth mentioning that emerges along the ending with the most sentimental scene ever:
“It’s not your fault.”
2. The Departed
“When you decide to be something, you can be it. That’s what they don’t tell you in the church. When I was your age they would say we can become cops, or criminals. Today, what I’m saying to you is this: when you’re facing a loaded gun, what’s the difference? “
It’s true. Quoted here by Frank Costello, played by Jack Nicholson, whether you come out to be a convict or some cop, it doesn’t matter a pinch in front of the barrel of a gun. You are just inches away from your death and your “dead or alive” possibilities coexist at that time.
3. Mystic River
“The reality is we’re still 11 year old boys locked in a cellar imagining what our lives would have been if we’d escaped.”
The quote describes the story of three boys, one of whom got harassed and they lived with great difficulties on their minds.
And at the bank of the river itself, Jimmy quotes the below:
“We bury our sins here, Dave. We wash them clean.”
4. The Fighter
Dickie Eklund, played by Christian Bale, quotes this while encouraging his brother for his fight:
“This is your time, all right? You take it. I had my time and I blew it. You don’t have to. All right? You get out there, and use all that you’ve been through, all that hell, all that we’ve gone through over the years, and you put it in that ring right now. This is yours.”
5. Gone Baby Gone
” I lived on this block my whole life; most of these people have. When your job is to find people who are missing, it helps to know where they started. I find the people who started in the cracks and then fell through. This city can be hard.”
Referring to the city of Boston itself, this one is quoted by the lead character, Patrick Kenzie, played by Casey Affleck.
6. Shutter Island
“Which would be worse – to live as a monster, or to die as a good man?”
Teddy Daniels played by Leonardo DiCaprio, gets upset about the world and quotes the above before walking off. His distress is totally expressed.
7. The Social Network
“You’re not an asshole, Mark. You’re just trying so hard to be.”
Well the last lines do make a mark (pun intended).
