Yes, we all love Samuel L. Jackson's rants. Here's what little I remember from Jackie Brown (I was kinda f**ked up at the time)

"AK-47. When you have to kill every motherf**ker in the room, accept no substitutes."
You can have peace. Or you can have freedom. Don't ever count on having both at once. -Lazarus Long

What about a grenade? Or some sort of RPG? That's silly. You can get shot quite a bit while you're firing a gun, but lob a grenade through the door and all you have to do is wait.

Let's work together to keep the present inevitable.

So yeah, I went and got a blog.

Granted a grenade is more effective, but to grant some context, he was discussing guns in particular. The AK was that character's favorite lead pusher.

I fear your words are wasted on the blighter...grenades indeed!

If one used grenades to clear a room no one would be able to hear Sam L Jackson shouting 'Die Mutherf****rs'.

Very true. I'm sorry I missed the theatrical release of The Spirit, since he was the villain of the piece, so I'm relegated to waiting for the DVD.

I'll buy "grenades trump AKs (unless some ballsy bastard grabs it and tosses it back), but sometimes, afterward, you want the room to have a floor...

From Kingdom of Heaven

Guy de Lusignan: Give me a war.

Reynald de Chatillon: It's what I do.

An interesting commentary on our world, I think.

I can't remember: did anyone quote Big Trouble in Little China? That had some good lines.

From Zulu:

Rourke's Drift... It'd take an Irishman to give his name to a rotten stinking middle o' nowhere hole like this.

Watchmen- Rorschach:
"Beneath me, this awful city, it screams like an abattoir full of retarded children."
So very dark and descriptive.

My favorite Watchmen quote was

"You people don't understand. I'm not locked in here with you, you're locked in here with me!"
I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.

That was another great one. The author of Watchmen (Alan Moore, was it?) is so very descriptive. An abattoir full or retarded kids would certainly be a noisy place. Such frightened and mournful noise.

"A man who drinks like that, he is gonna' die."
"When."
A samurai once asked Zen Master Hakuin where he would go after he died.
Hakuin answered, "How am I supposed to know?"
"How do you know? You're a Zen master?" exclaimed the samurai.
"Yes, but not a dead one," Hakuin answered.

The graphic novel was written by Alan Moore. Great read, pick it up sometime. One of my personal faves is from the young Silk Spectre:

"I'm used to going out at three in the morning and doing something stupid."
