We Add Bunch of Meows to the Greatest Movies of All Time

Here are classic quotes from 47 Hollywood films made better with a well-placed meow or two.

Did you know that hip hop act EL-P and Killer Mike recently released an album of cat sounds? It’s a re-creation of their critically acclaimed record Run the Jewels 2 using purrs and meows, and they did it because fans clamored for it through a Kickstarter page that started as a lark. Meow the Jewels is getting reviewed everywhere, even by our very own Phillip Mlynar.

The success of the cat-sounds album got us thinking: Why stop at a hip hop? Why not re-create other works of art — like the greatest films of all time! — with cat sounds? This should keep Hollywood busy for at least 20 years. Look how much better we made all these films — including The Princess Bride, Star Wars, Field of Dreams, and Wall Street — with a well-placed meow or two in these memorable lines:

  1. “My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to meow!”

Meow, in all of its forms — meow for life, for money, for love, knowledge — has marked the upward surge of mankind.”

Alrighty then.
