Programming Quotes Based On Movies

Love of movies is one of the things we have in common at Creately. Any group chat is bound to have one or two programming quotes based on movies, especially after a release. Ramishka’s the one who usually come up with them, although others do chip in from time to time. Below are some of the most creative and amusing quotes I could find by searching the chats. Obviously there are many more that could be added to the list. If you have a creative quote of your own mention it in the comments and I’ll make sure to add it to the list.

Aragorn from Lord of the Rings

My favorite programming quote based on a movie



“A day may come when the courage of devs fail, when we forsake our QA friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of bugs and shattered features, when the age of devs comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we RELEASE!”




Commissioner Gordon from The Dark Knight

Another quote based on a movie



“Because it’s the bug desktop encountered, but not the one we can recreate right now. So we’ll hunt it. Because we can fix it. Because it’s not a bug. It’s a logging fault, a server setting, A heap error.”




The President in Independence Day

A programming quote based on Independence day



“And should we fix the bugs today, the Second of November will no longer be known as a regular Friday, but as the day the we declared in one voice: “We will not go quietly into the night!” We will not vanish without a fight! We’re going to live on! We’re going to survive! Tomorrow we celebrate our RELEASE DAY! ”



Bane from The Dark Knight Rises

A programming quote based on Bane's talk to Bat man



“Oh, you think debugging is your ally. But you merely adopted the debugger; I was born in traces, molded by traces. I didn’t see a break point until I was already a man, by then it was nothing to me but BLINDING! “




Nada from They Live

Nada from They Live comes up with a quote




“I came here to kick ass and fix bugs. And I’m all out of bugs.”




2001  A Space Odyssey

A quote based on movie a space odyssey




“This method’s long—it goes on forever—and—oh my God—it’s full of local variables”





There are many programming quotes based on Transformers

“Debugging is the right of all sentient beings.”


“The bug lives among our code now, hiding in plain sight, but causing memory leaks in secret, waiting. I have witnessed its capacity for destruction, and though we are worlds apart, like us, there’s more to this bug than meets the eye.”


“Sometimes even the wisest of men and machines can be in error.”
