Classical composers have used Bible verses and poetry as the source material for choral compositions since ever -- so why not use some famous lines from cinema?

I would particularly love to hear a cantata based on HAL's final speech from 2001... but many other famous speeches and dialogues could also be used. How about Bogart's "hill of beans" speech from Casablanca? What other snippets would you suggest?

       This is a great idea. Why only cantatas? I would love to hear some as baroque style recitative with harpsichord & continuo band!

       Now I've got that Star Wars Cantina ditty stuck in my head.   

       "STELLA!"   

       I would love to hear me some Schwartzenegger 'I'll be bach' with some Bach in the bachground...
