We are immense fans of a good scenery chewing here, especially when it’s a good actor who sees ALL CAPS in the screenplay and just gasket-blows through the line like a bat shot out of Meatloaf’s ass. If you’re going to go over the top, GO. OVER. THE. TOP. Deliver that line like you’re trying to yell out a molar anchored into the back of your throat. A great actor can not only take a huge munch out the scenery and win an Oscar for it, he or she can can create an iconic ALL CAPS line (note: as this lists attests, some of the best ALL CAPS lines can also come from the worst actors).
Let’s take a look at the best ALL CAP movie lines in the history of film.
