"I'm Batman."
"I'll be back."
"Klaatu barada nikto"
"I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that."

There are some movie quotes that have reached a mythical status. Transcending the movie itself they reach the collective consciousness. They become part of society's language.

But, is there one superhero or science-fiction film that you quote from more than others?

I tend to quote from Star Trek movies, but who hasn't said Star Wars famous line, "May the force be with you"? Uncle Ben from Spider-Man touched our hearts with, "With great power comes great responsibility."

This week's poll asks: What is the most quotable science fiction or superhero movie ever?

I put a poll in this week's post to back it easier to vote. If you don't feel like commenting or want to vote on a movie I haven't listed use the poll below.

Update: Just as an FYI, I had to remove one of entries to avoid confusion, but I'll start adding the "Other" options as they come in so we can all vote on them. Great suggestions. Keep them coming!

  • As always, with the weekly polls, I'll update this post next week with the best comments.

    So, is there a movie that you quote more than others? Which is the best?

    Now I know this isn't sci fi but it is one of the best quotes of all time (For me). Scarface "Say hello to my little friend". Again not sci fi but still awesome!
