Five Greatest Monologues I've ever seen

A monologue is usually a long speech by a single actor. According to its definition, a narration can sometimes be considered as a monologue as well. But not necessarily. A monologue in its own term means a speech delivered by an actor as his thoughts rather than what's happening in the scene.

I've been researching over monologues and watching and learning as much as I can.
Here are some of the greatest monologues I found online.
This list is not actually just five monologues but five sources where I found the best monologues.

1. 12 Angry Men
This movie is mostly shot in one room only with 12 men who would decide the fate of a suspect on the basis of facts and figures presented in the court. This movie takes amazing turns and full of monologues.

2. Rajat's Speech | Pyar ka Punchnama
Even though it's a Hindi monologue, English audience can find the translated subtitles on YouTube here. Considering the definition it's a monologue and can be delivered in one go.

3. Benedict Cumberbatch (Hamlet): To be or not to be
I stumbled into this while searching for monologues and I find it great. Having no background knowledge of this play I find it hard to understand but the way it is executed makes me want to watch it again and again.

4. Game of Throne Tyrion's Speech during the trial
Game of Throne is an epic series with great acting perfectly put together. There are numerous dialogues and monologues that makes Game of Throne one of the best TV series ever made.
Apart from Tyrion's speech, you can look for Khalisi and Peter Bailish's monologues.

5. Shawshank Redemption Morgan Freeman
This whole movie hits you in the spot. It's Morgan Freeman guys. Best known for his voice. 

Some mentions worth taking a look.
