Top 10 Famous Movie Yells

The movies may are iconic, but it’s the loud noises that we will never forget! Welcome to and today we’ll be counting down the top 10 movie yells.
Just to set the tone, we’ve decided to only include yells in which words are spoken, as everything else is just a scream.

#10- You Maniacs! “Planet of the Apes” (1968)

Kicking off our list is the movie yell you’ve heard a million times before, and one we can’t seem to shake from our own lists. That’s right, it’s Charleton Heston’s reaction to the revelation that the Earth he knew is the same planet as the monkey infested wasteland he’s now stranded on. If there was ever a case for nuclear disarmament it’s this somewhat possible outcome. We feel you buddy; we’d be upset too.

#9- Freedom “Braveheart” (1995)

In this film, Mel plays William Wallace, a commoner who begins an uprising against a cruel English Tyrant. As the film’s tag line reads, “his passion captivated a woman. His courage inspired a nation. His heart defied a king.” Not convinced, well when he’s finally captured and tortured, he doesn’t beg for his life. Instead he goes out like he lived…

#8- Shut Up “Kindergarten Cop” (1990)

Only the lucky few to have ever worked in a school can truly know the ruckus little rugrats can cause. Here, Arnie goes nuclear as he finds himself unable to control the situation, knowing that none of his famous zingers would be powerful enough.

#7- Show Me The Money “Jerry Maguire” (1996)

Next up is the vein popping yell performed by Tom Cruise. As a desperate sports agent down to his last client, he’ll shout anything Cuba Gooding Jr. wants. Who hasn’t at least been tempted to yell this while at the casino?

#6- This is Sparta “300” (2006)

You know that old expression “don’t shoot the messenger”? Well nobody says that in Sparta. Here, the messenger in question arrives making threats and sharing terrible news, so yah, it’s pretty much open season. Man, King Leonidas has a temper! [This is Sparta!]

#5- Khan “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan” (1982)

In all of Sci-Fi, there are few yells even approaching this raging one-liner delivered by Captain Kirk. Trapped inside a dead asteroid by Khan, Kirk realizes that he’s been outmaneuvered and dealt a far worse fate then death. You better believe he’s pissed!

#4- Adrian “Rocky” (1976)

Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky is the story of a small-time heavyweight boxer with a whole lotta heart who defies the odds to go the distance. Even though he doesn’t win in his first film outing, just keeping pace with the reigning champ is an emotional victory that leaves him beaten and screaming for the one thing that matters, his lady-friend.

#3- Shall Not Pass “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring” (2001)

All fantasy fans know and bow before this ultimate fantasy yell. Fun to yell in real life too, it comes from the scene in which old wizard Gandalf decides to hold the line against the demonic Balrog, all so his friends can make it out alive. Hey man, when Gandalf puts his staff down, he means business!

#2- The Truth “A Few Good Men” (1992)

You think the battlefield is riveting? This military courtroom drama pitted Tom Cruise against Jack Nicholson as a morally reprehensible colonel stationed at Guantanamo Bay. Not one to take a punch lying down, after being hammered with questions by a young Tom Cruise, Jack fires back.

#1- Stella! “A Streetcar Named Desire” (1954)

Taking the top spot is the classic cry by a young Marlon Brando. As Stella’s attractive yet abusive husband, he regularly forces his wife to run to the neighbors for shelter. When he comes calling, she can’t help but return to the very same beefy man who makes her life a living hell. What can we say, despite her better judgment he seems to present an offer she can’t refuse.
