We few, we happy few...

On this, St. Crispin's Day, I present to you the speech of the same name in Shakespeare's Henry V. Hear the speech here. This has got to be my favorite movie moment of all time. Although, to this Virginian, the opening credits to Gods and Generals was profoundly moving as well.

Whether its the words, images, or the soundtracks in these bits of film, I don't know. But somehow, each taps something deep within humanity and plays with incredible passion upon the heart strings.
