    Pacino has some great ones. I also love the one in front of the school assembly at the end of "Scent of a Woman"

    Bill Pullman from Independence Day. A movie about aliens, but it pumps me up every time. Is it bad that I shed a tear when Cousin Eddie brings down the spaceship in true heroic fashion?

    Best eulogy ever:

    Donnie was a good bowler, and a good man. He was...He was one of us. He was a man who loved the outdoors, and bowling, and as a surfer explored the beaches of southern California from Redondo to Calabassos. And he was an avid bowler. And a good friend. He died -- he died as so many of his generation, before his time. In your wisdom you took him, Lord. As you took so many birght flowering young men, at Khe Sanh and Lan Doc AND HILL 364! These young men gave their lives. And Donny too. Donny...who...who loved bowling. And so, Theodore -- Donald--Karabotsos, in accordance with what we think your dying wishes might well have been, we commit your mortal remains to the bosom of the Pacific Ocean, which you loved so well. Goodnight, sweet prince.

    ...and the best part of that best eulogy has to be "HILL 364!"

    I consider this to be a speech. And a very, very good one.

    And it is South Park, so listen at your own expense.

    The first one that came to mind. Not sure if it's a speech, a soliloquy, a monologue or what, but it's Robert Shaw (as Quint) talking about the USS Indianapolis in the movie Jaws.
