  • 300
  • Avatar: "They have sent us a message. That they can take whatever they want. Well, we will send them a message. That THIS! THIS! is OUR! LAND!"
  • Forrest Gump:
    • Lieutenant Dan's Smite Me, O Mighty Smiter! antics.
    • Also:
    Abbie Hoffman: "The war … in Viet-FUCKING-NAAAAM!"
  • "I am ripper! Tearer! Slasher! Gouger! I am the teeth in the darkness! The talons in the night! Mine is STRENGTH! AND LUST! AND POWER! I! AM! BEOWULF!!!" from, well... Beowulf. Not actually a case of Follow the Leader, since filming was completed before 300 was anything more than a blip on the horizon, and even then, it's presented more as a satire on this sort of machoness than anything else. And arguably justified by the fact that he's got to pace his breathing while he cuts off Crispin Glover's arm with a wooden door.
    • Made more amusing because of the way he says "Beowulf"...very quickly and anticlimactically, when it's expected that he'll hold out the final word a la "SPARTAAAAAA!"
  • The Nightmare Before Christmas: "WHAT! IS! THIS!?"
  • Older Than They Think: "I! AM! OZ!" from The Wizard of Oz.

    Valentine: Many have asked where the Charm is, yes?
    Giant: ... WHERE...
    Valentine: The?
    Giant: ... THE...
    Valentine: Charm is?
    Giant: ... CHARM...
    Valentine: Is?
    Giant: ... IS. BUT... WE... SADLY...
    Valentine: No! Not sadly! Happily! As in, "We're gladly going to give it you really quickly"?
    Giant: ... SOLEMNLY...
    Valentine: No adjectives!
    Giant: ... GUARD... THE...
    Valentine: Charm?
    Giant: ... BOX.
    • Valentine himself does this a few scenes later, but it's actually because he's struggling for the right word.
    Valentine: STUPID... BUILDING!
    • This is justified, in that the giants, being so big, are slower, so their speech is slower too. And also Deconstructed, since instead of sounding awesome, they sound incredibly dumb and Valentine is visibly annoyed at how long they take to talk.
  • The Lord of the Rings: Gandalf bellows out an epic "YOU! SHALL NOT! PAAAAAAAASSSSSSS!"
