    I must have purchased $3,000 worth of DVD's since I've been here in Germany...and I have regrets for buying many, but certainly not the Saints. ;)

    "Shoot 'em Up" was one of the dumbest flicks ever. Loads of action, it's entertaining...but in a 'I have to be drunk first' kinda way.

    I am happy to see so many Boondock Saints fans. I just love the idea if it ever took form, having people just go out killing all the mafia, drug dealers, corrupt politicians and judges...anarchy. Just...awesome.

    More Boondock Saints Quotes

    Do not kill. Do not rape. Do not steal. These are principles which every man of every faith can embrace.
    These are not polite suggestions, these are codes of behavior, and those of you that ignore them will pay the dearest cost.
    There are varying degrees of evil. We urge you lesser forms of filth, not to push the bounds and cross over, into true corruption, into our domain.
    For if you do, one day you will look behind you and you will see we three, and on that day you will reap it.
    And we will send you to whatever god you wish

    SHUT YOUR FAT ASS, RAYNIE! I can't go and buy a pack of smokes without running into NINE GUYS YOU'VE *****!

    The question is not how far. The question is, do you possess the constitution, the depth of faith, to go as far as is needed?

    Now, we must all fear evil men, but there is another kind of evil, which we must fear most, and that is, the indifference of good men.

    And I shall unsheath my flashing sword, and my hand takes hold on judgment, I will take vengeance upon mine enemies, and I will repay those who haze me. Oh, Lord, raise me to Thy right hand and count me among Thy saints.
    And whosoever shed man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed, for in the image of God made He man. Destroy all that which is evil. So that which is good may flourish. And I shall count thee amoung my favoured sheep. And you shall have the protection of all the angels in heaven
    Never shall innocent blood be shed. Yet the blood of the wicked shall flow like a river. The three shall spread their blackened wings and be the vengeful striking hammer of God.

    Damn, I love this movie...... I'm gonna go watch it again.
