"All of you know full well, the great pains I've always taken never to be too strict, too rigid with the application of our laws, and as a consequence, have we not learned to live together in relative peace and harmony? And this day's lawlessness is how you repay my leniency. Well you leave me with little choice. An assault on the king's soldiers is the same as an assault on the king himself.And what makes this worse is, the magistrate then quietly admits he executed her in an attempt to flush out Wallace...(Church Street, Harvard Square)
Also On Memorial Day, Through The Years
I have been to the movies on Memorial Day Monday 13 times in 24 years, but it's not a great track record.
- 2014: Godzilla
- 2008: Indiana Jones & The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
- 2007: Pirates Of The Carribean: At World's End (the third one)
- 2006: X-Men: The Last Stand
- 2005: Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith
- 2002: Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones
- 2001: Pearl Harbor
- 1998: Godzilla (yes I saw two different Godzillas on Memorial Day 16 years apart)
- 1997: The Lost World: Jurassic Park
- 1996: Mission: Impossible
- 1995: Braveheart! I actually saw a Best Picture winner on Memorial Day!
- 1992: Alien3
- 1991: Hudson Hawk; perhaps ironically, the three Memorial Day movies with original screenplays were an Oscar winner, Pearl Harbor, and Hudson Hawk.
