    I think it's also from Big Trouble in Little China.

    Not Big Trouble in Little China.
    It's Uncle Benny Chan (Kim Chan) from Lethal Weapon 4.
    But Kim Chan sounds just like James Hong (aka David Lo Pan from Big Trouble in Little China).

    When a naked man chases a woman in alley with a butcher knife, and a hard-on, I take it he's collecting for the Blue Cross.

    Ghostbusters, eh?

    Having worked in Academia for many years, there is certainly a lot of truth to this - and I used to quote this fairly often. Especially the emphasis on "They expect re-SULTS!"

    I'm too lazy to start another thread so I'll put this here.
    This Pink Floyd lyric always impressed me because it explains so much with so few words:
    With . . .
    Without . . .
    Who'll deny it's what the fighting's all about.
    That's all I got.

    From one of the best movies- “Secondhand Lions”:

    ” I'm Hub McCann. I've fought in two World Wars and countless smaller ones on three continents. I led thousands of men into battle with everything from horses and swords to artillery and tanks. I've seen the headwaters of the Nile, and tribes of natives no white man had ever seen before. I've won and lost a dozen fortunes, KILLED MANY MEN and loved only one woman with a passion a FLEA like you could never begin to understand. That's who I am. NOW, GO HOME, BOY!”

    St. Crispin's Day gets a lot more mileage, but I'm more partial to Henry V's surrender ultimatum at the gates of Harfleur:

    "That's no moon. It's a space station!"
    First in Star Wars.

    Then repeated again in Twister.

    Both were good movies. 👍

    Dr Landowska: "There is a rumor they are evacuating Moscow. Yeah. There are even people leaving Kansas City because of the missile fields. Now I ask you, where does one go from Kansas City? To, uh, the Yukon? To Tahiti? We are not talking about Hiroshima anymore. Hiroshima was... was peanuts!"

    Two: Frank Castle is dead. He died with his family. Three: In certain extreme situations, the law is inadequate. In order to shame its inadequacy, it is necessary to act outside the law. To pursue... natural justice. This is not vengeance. Revenge is not a valid motive, it's an emotional response. No, not vengeance,... Punishment."

    I watched it the other night and thought it would be a good quote but I didn't think anyone else would get it.
    Fun movie but Captain Miller needed a better captain's chair. 😂

    I think it's the blend of Sci-fi and Horror. By making Hell a real place of pure Chaos existing outside of our current dimension but "reachable" through technological means, I think it gives the movie a stronger "imagine if" quality.

    Another movie that attempts to do that is John Carpenter's Prince of Darkness. It's not as good as Event Horizon but they do try to blur the lines between science and religion and it has a rare appearance by Alice Cooper as a homeless, psycho, killer bum. 😁
