    So it's just a bunch of clips I could inadvertently look at myself, but with terrible narration and noises. Suppose it's an easy way to make money.

    I believe my two favorite are at least mentioned in their second video… but they should be top of the list here.

    #1 Harrison Ford's improvised "I know" to Leia's "I love you"
    #2 Rutger Hauer's "Tears in rain" at the end of Blade Runner

    Two of the most perfectly improvised lines in cinema history.

    There are no ex-Marines. Once a Marine; always a Marine.
    I like the list. Full Metal Jacket is my favorite movie and "You're gonna need a bigger boat." is my all-time favorite movie quote.

    Private Hudson (Bill Paxton) in Aliens is by far the most quotable with his lines (as far as SciFi or Alien movies go) , although I'm not sure if any of that was improvised.

    What about Robin William's Genie? Half his voice acting was improvised.

    the first clip about Heath Ledger is actually false. What really happened was the timed explosives they used when filming didn't actually go off as planned. Heath was supposed to be walking to, and then getting in, the bus as the buildings exploded. However, they didn't go off on time, and Heath realized this while being in character, so in the Jokers mind, he's probably thinking "hm. Is the detonator faulty? It worked before what the…>EXPLOSION< OH FUCK HAHAHA!". Nolan just kept rolling hoping the explosives would detonate. So that's how that scene actually came about. Thank you for reading.

    Uncle Billy from IAWL falling into the trash cans saying "I'm alright, I'm alright" was a real accident and they kept it in.

    The Dark Knight scene wasn't improvised, it was a reaction.
    They purposely delayed the explosion so Heath Ledgers reaction to it was realistic.

    If you haven't seen A Clockwork Orange; you have not experienced a true masterpiece. This movie is truly one of the greats, possibly top three after Citizen Kane (revolutionary in cinematography and chronological storytelling {or rather, non-chronological stories]) and Casablanca (possibly one of the greatest love stories of all time, due to the acting and chemistry of the cast).

    A Clockwork Orange portrays an extreme character arc which has not been duplicated in decades.

    Even though it placed in the Top 3, Gunnery Sergeant Hartman should be #1.
