    My favorite western, bar none. Easily. (Tombstone is 2nd, but 'Unforgiven' is brilliant. Oscar-winning, duh.)

    That's probably in my top 10 favorite movies, period.

    Even better line than the Tombstone one you quote, IMO. Clint Eastwood, in 'The Outlaw Josey Wales'

    Josey: You a bounty hunter?
    Bounty hunter: A man has to do something these days to earn a living.
    Josey: Dyin' ain't much of a living boy.


    :lol: Fucking classic! You and I probably both really love those, being Roland Deschain fans n' all. [​IMG]

    he was the lead character in "Freaked". You know, that movie where Mr. T plays a chic.

    "I am woman. And I like me." :lol:


    Whenever I watch Bill & Ted's, I get nostalgic. That was filmed in Phoenix in the late 80s, and the mall in the movie is Metrocenter, where I used to hang out as a kid & teenager. It was such a cool mall in the 80s with the arcade & the ice rink & the big 2 story sculptures & all. Nowadays all that is gone & it's just another ordinary mall.

    :agreed:

    Eastwood has some of the coolest lines ever. There's an awesome one in Unforgiven when he shoots the bar owner at the end before killing Gene Hackman.

    "You just shot an unarmed man!"
    "Seems so. Guess he should have armed himself before decorating his bar with my friend."

    :lol: Hell yes. I love that bit. How the whole movie just builds to that conclusion... it's a bit like when Roland finally ascends the Dark Tower, ya know? Dark, evil... but so fucking right.

    Another Josey Wales line.

    Josey: When I get to likin' someone, they ain't around long.
    Lone Watie: I notice when you get to dislikin' someone they ain't around for long, neither.

    Gene Hackman had some great lines in that movie, too!

    "Corky walked into the bar and Bob shot at him, only he missed 'cause he was so damn drunk he couldn't see straight. Old Corky went for his gun and got in such a hurry that he shot his own toe off. Bob shot at Corky again and hit this $1000 mirror over the bar. Now, Bob's as good as dead because this time Corky does it right. He takes careful aim and BAM!, the cylinder explodes in that Walker Colt he was carrying; a failing common to that model. It would have been better if Corky had two guns instead of a big dick, 'cause Bob walks over and shoots him."

    "You mean Bob shot him after his hand had been..."

    "Well, Bob damn sure wasn't goin' to wait on him to grow another one."

    --------

    "Well, actually, what I heard was that you fell off your horse, drunk of course, and that you broke your bloody neck."

    "I heard that one myself, Bob. Hell, I even thought I was dead 'til I found out it was just that I was in Nebraska.

    --------

    "First off, Corky Corcoran never carried two guns. Though he should have."

    "But... no, no, he was called 'Two-Gun Corcoran.'"

    "Well, a lot of people did call him 'Two-Gun' but it wasn't on account of him sporting two pistols. It was because he had a dick that was so big it was longer than the barrel of that Walker Colt he carried."


    :metal: The Dark Tower series absolutely fucking rules. Unfortunately, every gunslinger quiz I take, I come out as Eddie. :lol:

    the last dt book wasn't that great...but gunslinger and the rest ruled. The only reason I didn't like the last book was coz there were so many threads he couldv'e tied together but didn't and so many things he'd set up that he just ignored. He said it himself, deus ex machina.

    If you read 'em, you wouldn't be saying "bah." ;)

    Of course, knowing your pedantic ass, it would turn into the big thread of literary critiscism! :fawk:
