MamaPop Roundtable Video: Red-Blooded Action Movie Star Edition

Captain howdy exorcist movie Bing, pow, boom, kablammo: these are the sounds of the Hollywood action movie.  And no action flick is complete without a muscled-up lunk crashing cars and jumping off buildings.  This week, MamaPop's team of people who talk to their webcams talk about their favourite red-blooded action movie heroes.

I was going to say King Leonidas, because, seriously, who could pass up Gerard Butler all sweaty and in a skirt? That said, I have to go with Mr. John McLean. He knows how to get his butt kicked all over the place, over and over again and still come up with priceless one liners.

I'm more hung up on action man quotes like:

"If it bleeds, we can kill it."

"You see Danny, I can deal with the bullets, and the bombs, and the blood. I don't want money, and I don't want medals. What I do want is for you to stand there in that faggoty white uniform and with your Harvard mouth extend me some fucking courtesy. You gotta ask me nicely."

"We were in this bar in Saigon and this kid comes up, this kid carrying a shoe-shine box. And he says "Shine, please, shine!" I said no. He kept askin', yeah, and Joey said "Yeah." And I went to get a couple of beers, and the box was wired, and he opened up the box, fucking blew his body all over the place. And he's laying there, he's fucking screaming. There's pieces of him all over me, just...like this, and I'm tryin' to pull him off, you know, my friend that's all over me! I've got blood and everything and I'm tryin' to hold him together! I'm puttin'... the guy's fuckin' insides keep coming out! And nobody would help! Nobody would help! He's saying, sayin' "I wanna go home! I wanna go home!" He keeps calling my name! "I wanna go home, Johnny! I wanna drive my Chevy!" I said "With what? I can't find your fuckin' legs! I can't find your legs!"

Yeah. Stuff like that.


You know, one day Washington Hypercube is going to come along. And there'll be a multidimensional bloodbath.

Washington "aw shucks" Cube


Here's some more:

"It's almost killing time and I better get sharp. I check the list: rubber tubing, gas, saw, gloves, cuffs, razor wire, hatchet, Gladys... and my mitts."

"Oh, I see, what I should do is, er, come home and say "Hi honey! Guess what? I walked into this house today, where this junkie asshole just fried his baby in a microwave, because it was crying too loud. So let me share that with you. Come on, let's share that, and in sharing it, we'll somehow, er, cathartically dispel all that heinous shit". Right?"

"I'm angry. I'm very angry, Ralph. You know, you can ball my wife if she wants you to. You can lounge around here on her sofa, in her ex-husband's dead-tech, post-modernistic bullshit house if you want to. But you do not get to watch my fucking television set!"

...one of my favorites:

"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams ... glitter in the dark near Tanhauser Gate. All those ... moments will be lost ... in time, like tears ... in rain. Time ... to die."

I've got a million of 'em. ;)
