Digitalstrange: it lacked the spirit that made Firefly so awesome. It was too dark and depressing. and killing Wash and Book sucked.


What, you don't like darkTM and grittyTM?  Doesn't it make everything more edgyTM and realisticTM?

Sorry, I shouldn't make this personal, but it's a relief to hear words that aren't batshiat crazy.  It seems all my peers think THE ingredient to making a story better is to take a nice, nihilistic shiat all over everything.  That makes everything all freshTM and originalTM, and by "fresh" and "original" we mean a cliche that dates back to Ancient Greece.

Aquapope: Maybe those particular power converters would make his T-16 go "Wooo Wooo" when he flew through Begger's Canyon. A space-teenager might give a shiat about that.


Except they actually did spend a little time developing his hopes & dreams, which were to go to the academy and become a pilot.  And he wasn't too choked up to sell the T-16 at Mos Eisley; I totally got the impression it was stock AND outdated.  He wasn't a gearhead or tinkerer.

A lot of those lines were taken out of context and thus, sound horrible. Others the writer did not know how awesome they are.

"I aim to misbehave" is an awesome quote.
"Semper Fi Motherfarker!" is another one taken out of context. It was said from a space marine to a demonic space marine. Kinda makes sense in the context of the scene.

i think it's unfortunate that some of my favorite characters in firefly were killed off in serenity... but, so what?  it's a movie.  it worked for the movie that those people would die.  the movie had a thematic arc to it, about belief.  it's like children of men, where every single person who tries to help dies.  that's the point of the film, it's about hope, doing good despite not being able to survive for it.  although it appears bleak, it's quite the opposite.  plus, how could they not have killed off book.  you don't torture someone for info just to let them live.

/ either way, i liked the show and the movie.

I just remember that movie being so unfarkingbelievably horrible that every line in it was bad.
Here's another:

"Paul Taylor, goes by the street-name "Stingray." You know him? "
"No... but I heard of him. He's pretty brutal. That's why they call him "The Stingray"

BeatrixK: Cythraul: Rapmaster2000: "I used to fark guys like you in prison!"

You had a lot of gay sex?  OK.  That's cool.  That's your lifestyle choice.

Nah, man.  You just don't get it.  That line showed how much of a badass he was, because, like, he was a total manly man because he forced other men to be his prison biatch.  And stuff.

...right before he gets his throat ripped out by a bare-chested Swayze.  So anti-badass.


Billy Batts says it in Goodfellas. Right before he gets stomped out to a Donovan song. I guess the moral is, if you've had prison sex, don't brag about it or else you're going to die. Soon. Badly.

ID4 has a wealth of bad lines.

"They're using our own satellites against us."
"You're never going to pilot the space shuttle if you marry a stripper"
"So it's a biological lifeform...."

Not to mention the stretches of suspension of disbelief the film asks of the audience. I'm not talking about disintegrating a 15 mile long spaceship with one nuke or hacking an alien computer system with a Mac Book. I've dated a stripper. They do not collect paychecks and they do not wake up before noon.

One of my favorite movies Tombstone, but this exchange always seemed forced and out of place

Morgan: Would you look at all those stars? I mean, you look up and you think,'God made all of that? He still remembered to make a little speck like me.' Kinda flattering, really.
Wyatt, do you believe in God? No, come on, really. Do ya?

Wyatt: Yeah. Maybe. Hell, I don't know.

Morgan: Well, what d'you think happens when you die?

Wyatt: Somethin'. Nothin'. Hell, I don't know.

Morgan: Well, I read this book, a book on spiritualism.

Wyatt:Oh, God, here he goes again.

Morgan:Said that a lot of people when they die, they see this light. Like in a tunnel.

Wyatt:Yeah?

Morgan: They say it's the light leadin' you to Heaven.

Wyatt:Really? Well, what about Hell? They got a sign there, or what?

Morgan:Hey, Wyatt, goddammit. I'm serious.


The exchange is sort of unrelated to anything other than Morgan's final words as he's dying about not seeing the light. I guess they wanted the audience to relate to Morgan even though he really don't do much in the movie but die. Either that or they wanted to give Bill more lines.

Uh, the line before that is:

"IT'S SETTLING DIRECTLY OVER US."  Ship moves, ship stops, ship fires primary weapon, ship starts moving again, ship stops, ship fires primary weapon, etc.....

Even an Earfling could figure that out after a while.

You could have just quoted every one of Bill Paxton's lines in that movie and it would have made the list. I love that movie, but Paxton makes me cringe. Especially when he spits tobacco out of his mouth right after Kurt Russell. Like he can't think of anything else to do but copy him.

/yes. it hurts.

The T-16 is. Its similar to a barn stormer bi-plane. The Baker's Canyon run in Rogue Squadron (1 or 2 I dont remember) has you fly the T-16s through the canyon in a race.

Chief O'Brien was right, they should have shot down the plane over the desert before it reached Vegas. It didn't kill any innocent people because it's a movie but it reality it would have killed hundreds. That was a bad call Ripley, bad call.

Speaking of worst lines ever, my wife had me watch a recent film called "Friends With Kids", primarily because it has Chris O'Dowd in it and we are huge IT Crowd fans.  So the movie is basically an updated version of "When Harry Met Sally".  It's an OK movie, nothing to write home about and definitely not as funny as "When Harry Met Sally".

At the end of the movie, they have the final scene, where the male lead realizes he wants to spend the rest of his life with the female lead and he races to her apartment in the middle of the night to give the big speech to win her heart.  While Crystal's speech may not be Shakespeare, it might as well be compared to the absolute garbage that was in this movie.  I was actually rooting for the woman to say no and dump his ass after his speech.  It was just awful.

When Channel 5 started up in the UK they used a bunch of her films as late night filler. Sadly, I can't remember any specific dialogue, but one of them, Electra (? I think, based on IMDB), is by far the worst film I have ever seen.
