In cyberspace there are many scattered and very legendary memes, where the original source is a scene from a movie. Memes have become a culture closely related to Internet users. Memes are usually a response or response from someone regarding a upload circulating on the internet.
Although memes were originally anecdotes or jokes to comment on an event, in this modern era memes have undergone a turn in which, in addition to presenting funny comments, they are also a means of presenting sarcastic comments. Aside from all that, there are plenty of funny, interesting, and legendary memes that are actually taken from one of the scenes in the movie. Anything?
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
The film, which was released in 1971, features Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka. The plot of the film itself is not far from what has been presented in modern versions, such as the one played by Johnny Depp. However, there is a moment in the movie that later became one of the legendary memes, when Willy Wonka looks at one of the visitors with a big smile.
Internet users often use this moment as a sarcasm meme. This was one of the first moments of popularity of memes on the Internet. This scene occurs at the beginning of the story when Willy Wonka presents visitors to his chocolate factory with one of the machines called the Everlasting Gobstoppers. And Willy was actually asking how the machine works.
The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
The “You don’t just go into Mordor” meme showing the figure of Sean Bean is about 22 years old. This meme itself was born from a dialogue break in the movie The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. During a meeting of Elrond’s council in Rivendell, Sean Bean’s character Boromir states that they can use the Ring as a weapon.
And in the dialogue, Boromir had mentioned how difficult it was to destroy Sauron’s creation by throwing it into Mount Doom. Sean Bean himself admits that he has no problem with the meme and even considers it a legacy.
The movie The Matrix is one of the most successful and fan-loved science fiction movies. In this movie, we are introduced to several iconic characters like Neo and Morpheus. Speaking of Morpheus, The Matrix presents one of the legendary memes that involves a scene from the movie and shows the figure of Morpheus.
In this scene, Morpheus looks serious and tries to explain something. And this is also what later became the legendary meme, “And if I told you…” which was followed by various acts to attack the “victims”. The interesting thing is that Morpheus himself never says this dialogue in his movie. All he says in the movie is “Do you want to know what ‘it’ is?”
Star Wars trilogy prequel
The Star Wars prequel trilogy is not only considered one of the successful trilogies in the franchise. These movies also spawned plenty of legendary memes. An example is the meme “For the better, right?” showing the moment of Anakin and Padmé in a garden. The expression that Anakin showed at that moment – that’s a terrible smile – that later became the meme.
In addition to the Anakin and Padme memes, there is also a legendary meme that emerged from the fight scene between Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi. An example is the “Hello There” meme, and the most phenomenal one is “It’s over Anakin! I have the high ground!” and “You were the Chosen One!” and “You underestimate my power.” The Star Wars franchise seems to have managed to entertain a lot of people.
Host: The Legend of Ron Burgundy
This is also one of the movies that spawned legendary memes. The film itself was released in 2004 and was made into a satirical comedy film that tells the story of the most beloved newscaster in San Diego, Burgundy. Because this is a comedy film, it seems natural that there would be many memes that later crop up from this film, one of which is the “That escalated quickly” piece of dialogue.
Usually, this meme is used when another major event occurs that causes the situation to get out of control. This meme shows a burgundy figure sitting relaxed in a chair with a surprised expression as she holds a drink. The scene in the meme is taken from the scene where Burgundy fights the rival TV team.
the big lebowsky
One of the classic movies that are underrated. The Big Lebowski tells the story of Jeff Lebowski. Many people mistakenly think that he is a billionaire figure who has a lot of problems, because he has the same name. Jeff then has to deal with the disappearance of a billionaire’s wife, a German forest collector, and various other terrible things. The moment in this movie that later became a meme was when Walter picked up a gun at a bowling alley and started cocking the gun with the text “Am I the only…”? This meme is usually used by someone to show his anger towards someone. or a situation.
the dark knights
The Dark Knight features several popular memes in the early 2010 era. One of the famous memes from this Christopher Nolan movie is Joker’s dialogue with Harvey Dent. Joker says that people never panic when all the crimes he committed have happened. However, when one person dies against his plan, everyone loses their minds.
The “Everybody Loses Their Minds” meme was born from the scene above where there is an image of the Joker explaining something to Harvey Dent. This movie also features the “You just embrace the darkness” meme, which is some dialogue from Bane. This meme is used to compare two events or people, where another person is familiar with the situation.
spider man 3
Tobey Maguire is known as one of the phenomenal actors who played Spider-Man, before that we were introduced to other figures like Andrew Garfield and Tom Holland. In the first two movies, we see how Spider-Man and Peter Parker live up to the hype as heroes. However, in the third film, Peter experiences a change in attitude due to the symbiote inside his body.
This change in attitude has resulted in some legendary memes. For example the scene when Peter Parker is dancing in the street and in various places. And he also delivered some terrific dialogue, namely, “I’ll put some dirt in your eye.” The interesting fact is that Tobey himself still goes jogging every morning.
Django Unchained is a Quentin Tarantino movie which, while it received a lot of positive reviews and was a box office success, this movie is littered with various controversies. Telling the story of slavery in America in ancient times, this movie features a number of big stars from Christoph Waltz, Jamie Foxx and also Leonardo DiCaprio.
Leo himself plays the role of the villainous plantation owner named Calvin Candie. In a dinner scene towards the end of the film, DiCaprio can be seen holding a glass of drink as he chuckles. This moment that later became one of the most legendary memes.
Todd Phillips’ Joker movie, which was released in 2019, is basically not meme material, given the story’s serious approach. There are also other serious things that the character of Arthur Fleck presents, such as the mental health disorder that he is experiencing. However, that doesn’t stop people from creating memes of this movie and posting them on the internet.
Some of the memes that were born from this movie are the scene of the Joker dancing on the stairs of an area, where this scene is Arthur who begins to accept himself as the Joker. And what’s no less phenomenal is the piece of dialogue that appears at the end of the story, namely “you wouldn’t understand” where this scene appears where the psychiatrist tries to ask what’s on Arthur’s mind.
The various films that have been released in theaters were not intended from the beginning to become memes on the internet. However, Internet users always manage to find unique and funny moments that later become Internet memes.
