Almost every film has a moment where a character either can’t take it any more, has to rally the troops, or otherwise share some extensive piece of information. It became so notable for a character to do this while riding a horse after Braveheart that I, personally, began to refer to it as a “guy on a horse speech” instead of a monologue. Cine-Men co-host Darryl Mansel doesn’t refer to movie monologues the same way, but he does agree that there are quite a few really good ones and narrowing down a list to three is not easy. Or at least, that’s what I tell myself when narrowing it down becomes too hard.
For your listening enjoyment, Episode 36 of The Cine-Men is an exploration of the movie monologues we love and why. We also discuss our latest challenges (Wei Lo’s Fist of Fury and Bridget Savage Cole & Danielle Krudy’s Blow the Man Down), recent watches, and more.
Cine-Men hosts Douglas Davidson and Seed discuss movies we’ve seen lately, our favorite monologues, and the Cine-Men Challenge!
