Quotes Corner - 2015 Edition

Quotes Corner is a regular feature that I run where I compile the wittiest, snappiest and most memorable lines (for better or worse) from a particular TV show, film or celebrity - in the past I've covered Modern Family, Community and Jennifer Lawrence to name just a few.

But, in the spirit of December and looking back at the year that was, I've decided to collect together a bumper edition of my favourite movie quotes from the year - whether they were great (The Martian) or awful (Fifty Shades of Grey), these one-liners helped shape cinema in 2015.

What were your favourite movie quotes from 2015? Are there any that I missed? Let me know in the comments section down below!


  1. Great post! The Martian has so many amazing quotes. They had even more in the book.

    1. The book was awesome! I like that they found the space to include that infamous Aquaman line in some of the promotional webisodes.

  2. I think The Martian is defintely the most quotable, but we were calling those carrots cooked for a long time!!

    1. I loved how quotable The Martian was, and the book was even better!
