Cheesy Dialog in Contemporary Film

I wish they had had better conversations.
1. James Bond & Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale (2006)
Vesper: Now, having just met you, I wouldn’t go as far as calling you a cold-hearted bastard…
Bond: No, of course not.
Vesper: But it wouldn’t be a stretch to imagine. You think of women as disposable pleasures rather than meaningful pursuits. So, as charming as you are, Mr. Bond, I will be keeping my eye on our government’s money and off your perfectly formed arse.
Bond: You noticed.
Vesper: Even accountants have imagination. How was your lamb?
Bond: Skewered. One sympathizes.
2. Bella Swan & Edward Cullen in Twilight (2008)
Edward Cullen: I can’t read your mind. You have to tell me what you’re thinking.
Bella Swan: Now I’m afraid.
Edward Cullen: Good.
Bella Swan: I’m not afraid of you, I’m only afraid of losing you. I feel like you’re gonna disappear.
Edward Cullen: You don’t know how long I’ve waited for you. And so the lion fell in love with the lamb.
Bella Swan: What a stupid lamb.
Edward Cullen: What a sick, masochistic lion.
3. King Leonidas & Persian Messenger in 300 (2007)
Messenger: Choose your next words carefully, Leonidas. They may be your last as king.
King Leonidas: Earth and water?
Messenger: Madman! You’re a madman!
King Leonidas: Earth and water? You’ll find plenty of both down there.
Messenger: No man, Persian or Greek, no man threatens a messenger!
King Leonidas: You bring the crowns and heads of conquered kings to my city steps. You insult my queen. You threaten my people with slavery and death! Oh, I’ve chosen my words carefully, Persian. Perhaps you should have done the same!
Messenger: This is blasphemy! This is madness!
King Leonidas: Madness…? This is Sparta!
4. Dimitri & Vladimir in Anastasia (1997)
Dimitri: No, no. No, you don’t know. I was the boy in the palace. The one who opened the wall. She’s the real thing, Vlad.
Vladimir: That means our Anya has found her family. We have found the heir to the Russian throne. And you…
Dimitri: Will walk out of her life forever.
Vladimir: But…
Dimitri: Princesses don’t marry kitchen boys.
5. Wolverine & Cyclops in X-Men (2000)
Wolverine: Hey, hey- it’s me!
Cyclops: Prove it.
Wolverine: You’re a dick.
Cyclops: Okay.
