Commando...the quotes in this movie are just amazing,

[Matrix has thrown a pipe through Bennett]
Matrix : Let off some steam, Bennett!

Sully : Oh, here. Have some beers in Val Verde, Matrix. It'll give everyone a little more time with your daughter.
Henriques : Heh.
Matrix : You're a funny guy, Sully, I like you. That's why I'm going to kill you last.

Matrix : Remember, Sully, when I promised to kill you last?
Sully : That's right, Matrix. You did.
Matrix : I lied.

Bennett: Tranquilizers...I wanted to use the real thing!

Cooke : You scared mother lover? Well you should be because this green beret is going to kick your big ass.
Matrix : I eat green berets for breakfast. And right now I'm VERY hungry.
Cindy : I can't believe this macho bullshit.

Matrix : I'll be back, Bennett.
[Cindy has just shot him down]
Sully: You fuckin' censored.

Matrix : Don't break radio silence until they see me.
Cindy : How will I know?
Matrix : Because all censored hell is going to break loose.

Matrix : [After killing a man in the plane] Don't disturb my friend, he's dead tired.

Soldier : Slitting a little girl's throat is like cutting warm butter.
Bennett : Put the knife away and shut your mouth.

Gen. Kirby : Keep on the airwaves and let me know if you hear anything unusual.
Soldier : I'll keep at it. What are you expecting?
Gen. Kirby : World War Three.

Biggs, Mall Security Guard : Attention all units, emergency on theater level, suspect six foot two, brown hair. He is one gigantic mother lover.

Arius : Your father appears to be cooperating. You will be back with him soon. Won't that be nice?
Jenny : Not as nearly as nice as watching him smash your face in.

[Cooke aims a gun at Matrix]
Cooke : censored you asshole.
Matrix : censored YOU asshole!

Cindy : What happened to Sully?
Matrix : I let him go.

Cindy : These guys eat too much red meat.

Bennett : John, I'm not going to shoot you between the eyes. I'm going to shoot you between the balls!

[Plane will not start]
Matrix : Fly or die.
[Plane starts up]
Matrix : Works every time.

Cooke : Where's Sully?
Cindy : In the shower.
Cooke : Who are you?
Cindy : Room service.

Bennett : Ever since you had me thrown out of your unit I've waited to pay you back. Do you know what today is, Matrix? Pay-day!

Matrix : How much are they paying you, Bennett?
Bennett : They offered me a hundred grand. But you wanna know something? When I found out I'd get my hands on you, I said I'd do it for nothing!

[Cindy uses a rocket launcher]
Matrix : Where did you learn how to do that?
Cindy : I read the instructions.

Bennett : I really love listening to your little censored ant soldiers trying to talk tough. They make me laugh. If Matrix was here, he'd laugh too.

Arius : Mr. Bennett, my soldiers are patriots.
Bennett : Your soldiers are nothing. Matrix and I can kill every one of them
Bennett : in the blink of an eye. Remember that.
Arius : Are you trying to... frighten me?
Bennett : I don't have to try. When Matrix finishes the job, he'll be back for his daughter. Now whether she's alive or dead doesn't matter. Then he'll be after you. Now the only thing between Matrix and you, is me.
Arius : It is you that is afraid, Mr. Bennett. YOU are afraid of Matrix.
Bennett : Of course. I'm smart. But I have an edge; I have his daughter.

Matrix : We'll take Cooke's car. He won't be needing it.

Cindy : You don't even have a car.
[Matrix pushes Sully's overturned car back upright]
Matrix : I do now.

Cindy : You steal my car, you rip the seat out, you kidnap me, you ask me to help you find your daughter which I very kindly do, and then you get me involved in a shoot out where people are dying and there's blood spurting all over the place, and then I watch you rip a phone booth out of a wall, swing from the ceiling like Tarzan, and then there's a cop that's going to shoot you and I save you and they start chasing me. Are you going to tell me what's going on or what?
Matrix : No.

Stewardess: Any carry-on luggage?
Matrix : Just him.

Matrix : A guy I trusted for years wants me dead.
Cindy : I've only known you five minutes and I want you dead, too.

Matrix : Come on, Bennett, throw away that chicken-censored gun. You don't just want to pull a trigger. Put the knife in me and look me in the eye and see what's going on in there when you turn it.

[While talking to a bunch of pretty ladies]
Biggs, Mall Security Guard : Wanna see me kick some ass?

Lawson : I was afraid you'd miss me!
Cooke : Dont worry, we won't.
[Cooke and Diaz execute Lawson]

Soldier : What, you're expecting me to smell those guys coming?!
Matrix : I did.

Diaz : Mellow out man. We can't talk business with you waving guns in people's faces. Your daughter is safe, Colonel. Now whether she stays that way is up to you. My people, they got some business with you. And if you want your kid back, then you gotta cooperate, right?
Matrix : Wrong!
[shoots Diaz between the eyes]

Cooke : You know what I like best about this car? The price.
[Cranks up the car and backs up]
Forrestal, Car Salesman : Wait a minute! You can't do that in here!
[Cooke speeds up and runs over Forrestal]

Gen. Kirby : Leave anything for us?
Matrix : Just bodies.

[Matrix declines an offer to resume his unit]
Matrix : This was the last time.
Gen. Kirby : Until next time.
Matrix : No chance.

Predator - brilliant film from start to finish, then Maybe Terminator 1 or 2.

Memorable quotes:

Dutch: Hey Billy, give me a way out of this hole. Aerial says we are cut off.
Billy: The only way outta here is that valley that leads to the east. But I wouldn't wish that on a broke-censored dog.

Dutch: If it bleeds, we can kill it.

Remember that scene well. Shame they cut it out of the second Conan movie, though.
Thing is, I can't pick just one. I like all his movies. Mind you, just for pure popcorn fodder and witty one-liners alone, it does have to be Commando.
For a really good army sci-fi action movie, its Predator. For a purely good sci-fi movie, The Terminator.

Have you been on some early lunchtime drinks ?!? Kindergarten Cop ? Better than Terminator etc ?!

Terminator 1 is a classic, second of course was superb but like the 'cheaper' original first one. Running Man wasnt bad, Total Recall watchable and Commando was so OTT it was good.

Tough one this, I'd be tempted to pick Terminator but Total Recall is probably one of my most watched films ever. Also watched The Running Man a ton of times.

I voted T2 as I don't mind the Terminator films, but in general I'm not an Arnie fan.
