Some reasons to use a movie quote search engine are to supplement a review, essay or article being written with complementary quotes of thematic relevance; for trivia purposes and for movie-related contests, challenges and competitions; and to serve as a content-finder for the production of original videos such as super cuts, spoofs and vlog entries. Movie quotes occasionally serve as content for satirical compilation videos, riffing on the inaccuracies of movie life versus reality.
Movie quote search engines are also helpful to test one's personal knowledge of Hollywood history, to satisfy nagging pop culture questions, and to settle bets and resolve trivia-related disagreements.
Film quote search engines are good resources for finding particular catch phrases attributed to a certain star or project, and then tracking down the inevitable riffs, reprises and reworks of that catch phrase that are sure to follow in subsequent projects, parodies and assorted appearances.
Movie quote search engines can narrow down a quest for quotes to particular thematic or character-related elements, perhaps to support a lecture, thesis, critique or instructional presentation in the form of a podcast, webcast or webinar.
Film quote search engines can be used to examine changes in language, slang and generational lingo as times and trends morph throughout the years. They can also provide a window into how certain cultures and demographics use language to reflect their realities in the context of different stops on the historical time line.
