'I'll be back' and other movie lines everyone does shit impressions of

DISCUSSING films? Brace yourself for shit impressions of these memorable lines:

‘I’ll be back’

Can most people do a passable Arnold Schwarzenegger impression? No. Will that stop them from trying to recreate the most notorious line from The Terminator? Also no. Rather than accurately recreating the Austrian strongman’s characteristic drawl, they’ll instead sound like they’ve been lobotomised. To be fair only a trained ear can tell the difference.

‘You talking to me?’

If someone mentions Taxi Driver, prepare for every idiot in your vicinity to put on their hammiest New York accent. Nothing could be less threatening than seeing your office’s nerdy accountant try to impersonate a young Robert de Niro while pretending his fingers are a gun, but play along otherwise he might go mental just like Travis Bickle did. 

‘Say hello to my little friend’

Scarface itself is filled with shit impressions. It features Al Pacino, an Italian-American overactor from New York, half-heartedly adopt a vaguely Cuban accent. This means that when people with no talent for impressions quote it, they’re badly imitating someone doing a poor job to begin with. The results make cinema itself seem like a regrettable mistake.

‘My precious!’

Andy Serkis is a professional actor and motion-capture king whose immense talent transformed Gollum’s ridiculous dialogue from The Lord of the Rings into something guttural and scary. Your friends are not Andy Serkis, meaning their impression will sound like they’re choking on their tongues and will showering you with spittle, which you don’t like.

‘Here’s Johnny!’

Unlike you, Jack Nicholson has a uniquely sinister face and voice. This means that when you try to recreate this iconic line from The Shining, you won’t. Even if you smash down a door with an axe and do your best wild-eyed stare it won’t help, and you’ll have broken a door.

Gen Z teen amazed elderly woman in her 30s still attractive

A GEN Z 17-year-old is blown away that a woman in her late 30s is not utterly decrepit.

Grace Wood-Morris was shocked and confused after finding out that a woman who is healthy and reasonably good looking is actually a 36-year-old.

She continued: “Honestly, I was gobsmacked. Like, she didn’t look as though she might keel over and die at any given moment. That’s an amazing achievement when you reach such an advanced age.

“I’m pretty sure she has her own teeth, her hair isn’t all crispy and white, and she can literally walk on her own legs without needing support. How mad is that?

“I know that in your mid-twenties you become completely embarrassing and irrelevant, but I think it’s inspiring that she’s soldiered through that and more than a decade on doesn’t look like a walking corpse. I can only hope I’ll look like I’m alive when I reach her age.”

Wood-Morris’s mother Carolyn, said: “When I tell her I’m in my forties she’s going to assume I must have been born in the Middle Ages.”
