    Yeah, Hulk, it is a great flick. If you liked that one, go rent "Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels". Its another Guy Ritchie film with most of the same cast and its a great one too.

    Well if it's about communist Limey bastids, I see why it was named after a woman's love organ.

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    I have the dvd of Snatch, and you know how on dvds you can select different languages that you can listen to the movie in (like French or Spanish)? Snatch has a "Pikey" language track, and what it does is run closed captioning whenever Brad Pitts character talks because he is so damn hard to understand. I laughed my ass off when I saw this, especially the time when it showed a bunch of question marks one time, because even the movie's producers didn't know what the hell Pitt was saying in one scene...

    Didn't the US make a movie called Snatch? I assume it's making fun of you. Or is that the same movie. With Brad Pitt....?

    You wanna see something really , reeeeeeeeeealllyyyyyy good in a movie

    I know you might have seen this many times before, but try to pay extra attaintion to the ending scene in Bladerunner, When the replicant has chased Harrison Ford to the rough top, and instead of killing him he dies him self, but right before that moment, he says some magical stuff, the whole damn scene is Magical.

    Life itself talking, eh?

    So essentially what you're saying is he stood on top of the highest mountain and screamed, "I SUCK!!!" ?

    Yeah?

    The roof scene from BladeRunner:

    Rutger Hauer(RH) holds a dove and stands on a rooftop, looking down upon Harrison Ford(HF) who is hanging onto a ledge by his hands.

    RH
    “Quite an experience to live in fear, isn’t it? That’s what it is like to be a slave.”

    HF starts to slip, his grip on the ledge growing weaker. First one, then the other hand finally slips off of the ledge and just as he is about to fall-

    RH grabs his wrist from above,
    “Ha! Kinship!” and hauls him over unto the roof. HF slips down onto his back and tries to back away from RH. RH hunches down, facing him.

    RH
    “I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I’ve watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time. Like tears… In the rain. Time to die.”

    RH releases the dove, and it flies away, then RH presumably dies.


    ************
    Ok, Rock, this was a pretty cool scene, but I guess it didn't push my buttons like it did yours. But, hey - to each there own.

    Now let me share one of my favorite dialogues from Snatch:


    Bullet-Tooth Tony sits at a table while three masked men confront him, two with hand guns.

    Bullet-Tooth Tony:
    “So, you’re obviously the big dick and that, on either side of you, are your balls. There are two types of balls: There are big brave balls, and there are little faggot balls.”

    Vinny(One of the masked men with a gun):
    “These are your last words so make them a prayer.”

    Bullet-Tooth Tony:
    “Dicks have drive and clarity of vision but they’re not clever. They smell pussy and they want a piece of the action. And you thought you smelled some good old pussy and have brought your two little mincy faggot balls along for a good old time. But you’ve got your parties muddled up. There’s no pussy here just a dose that’ll make you wish you were born a woman. Like a prick you’re having second thoughts. You’re shrinking. And your two little balls are shrinking with you. The fact that you’ve got “Replica” written on the side of your gun… And the fact that I’ve got “Desert Eagle point five oh” written on the side of mine should precipitate your balls into shrinking, along with your presence. Now… **** off.”

    *************

    Reading it is not quite the same as seeing it, but I laugh my friggin' ass off everytime I watch this... Just thought I would share...
