15 Epically Insulting Movie Speeches

comments
Is life getting you down lately? Boss taking advantage of you at work? Friends walking all over you? Then, pal, this article could be just the thing you need. And, you can have it all for the low price of 15 clicks!
Just watch these epic movie speeches in which underdogs and heroes alike speak up for justice. Listen to them yell and scream and throw temper tantrums. We promise, in no time at all, you'll be pumped up and ready to step up, speak out, and drop the mic all over your problems. Watch out world, because you're not gonna take it anymore.
Warning: Occasional spoilers included. The following videos include many creative uses of swear words, so get your headphones on.
Good Will Hunting
This is the scene that inspired this article, and it really can't be beat. If you have a college education, chances are you felt the sting of the above accusations in a slightly more personal way — but at least you didn't make that absolutely awful comment about taking your kids on a ski trip. The only thing more amazing than Matt Damon's youthful good looks and excellent takedown abilities is the impossible smugness exuded by the actor playing the ponytail guide. How do you like them apples?
Full Metal Jacket
Totally brutal to the point of being laughable — as evidenced by that unfortunately stubborn grin at the end — this is the army-hazing scene to end all army-hazing scenes. Unfortunately, things don't get much better for Pyle.
However, the final scene of There Will Be Blood is so gut-wrenchingly sadistic, it deserves to be called out. Here are two men driven mad by faith (Paul Dano's in God and Lewis in narcissism) whose disdain for each other is so heated, it could be considered love. Their selfishly brutal climax is a dog-eat-dog takedown that's been building since the opening credits. And, in the end, all you can do is just sit and exist.
