I guess that lady wasn’t too psychic. Did she see that knife to the gut?

OMG….NINJA! But they don’t exist anymore

For a minute I thought this movie was going to take a different turn. I thought Chuck had killed that ladies family because he had some kind of ninja flash back

Step forward…haha…sucka! Into the bitching pit.

The coffee shop next to the gym.

2 hours in the sound booth with Chuck Norris whispering inner monologue

Wow…it don’t take much to be rejected by your Ninja daddy.

See ya Ninjas….remember…we are watching.

Wow…I don’t feel like a ninja.

2nd week in a row we have seen a movie with a brown cargo van.

Did you just hiss at me?

Fur Mart Building…hehe..what the hell kind of name is that.

heheh…forget it…I’ll loan you my shampoo…have you seen my hair

Hey..ole senior one arm is playing chess against the old man in UP

Hey….your truck aint’ got no windshield…or doors!

Everyone assumes Chuck Norris is sleeping with these ladies…but he is a virgin.

Your Hog story amuses me…now I am sad.

Sorry…I don’t have sex…it saps my Ninja Strength…oh what the hell. BOOBIES!

How you reckon you gonna sneak up on Ninja Camp. We are Ninja Camp!!

Awww….the classic…Just stay here in the car woman. Nope…

“Always feel like…Ninja’s watching me!.Invading my Privacy…hiyaa hiyaaa”

“They were Ninja fighting!! Those dudes were fast as…gah…throwing star in my neck! *collapse”

what advantage would it be to the ninjas attacking Norris in their camp to be ninja quite…see this is why the Ninja way is extinct.

What were those dudes doing in the dunkers that required zipping up.

“Don’t kill him!!” Like you could kill Chuck Norris

Chick in the bucket. An actually Octagon!

Expected him to demask the one hissing ninja and him to be a gila monster

You just knew that ninja was going to come back out on fire..

Finally, I didn’t think anyone was ever going to kill A.J.

I see your monkey claw style fighting….I give you…foot to the balls.

Is that Rudy! OMG I’m pretty sure that is Samwise

Radium in the ass and who would search for it with a geiger counter.

SuperCop

Supercop (1992) – Hi, This is Jackie Chan and I would just like to apologize to you Americans for the chinese snuff film that was rolled during the end credits. No chinese actors were harmed during the filming of this movie…. just the 6 china men deaths. But no more! Also, I hope to one day work with greatest American Actor. Chris Tucker.

and if you think this voice is offensive. Wait till you hear the dub of Jackie Chan’s Mammie

Twitter:

Supercop – Like being drowned by  2 china-men in speedos for an hour and a half. It’s exciting in parts. Offensive in others.  

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supercop

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0104558/

 

Stuff I Loved:

  • I don’t really need my opening credits kungfu’ing me. They were Kung Fu Fighting! They were giving me the credits.
  • We need a supercop!
  • That’s a lot of blue jean material Mr. Chan

Well this dude must be important. Look at all those trophies

  • I don’t think these guys are really speaking English.
  • Jackie Chan’s uncle actor

Hey, I wanted to come back and talk to you after your conversation with your nephew. But I didn’t want to come back inside. So I hung out in the garden and crept back in through the window.

  • For a rated R movie I sure ain’t seeing no booty action.
  • Crazy asian lady drivers! She’s on the wrong side. Unless she is driving a postal car.
  • Supercop Chan.
  • what kind of crazy training facility is this?
  • Geez man. This place is like some kind of communist regime. I wonder how you get on the suit and tie department
  • Don’t walk right into my coal shoveling and then punch me.

What is the dog barking at? How the hell should I know…it’s your dog.

Man. Coal really makes your teeth look white.

Please do not encourage me from your coal cart. Running uphill is not as easy as it looks.

Can beat up 12 guards at once. Can’t go 50 feet up a 35% incline.

Is that one thugs name “FishCake?” Pretty sure that is what I heard.

Just do it. That is how we do it in the country.

Grannie mamaa is the most offensive asian voice over acting I have ever heard in any language

Hey Grannie Mama. Your boobs hit the floor

“Want a cigarette?”

I’ve seen that beard before. Sweet.

Good thing Headquarters is on the same channel as the street cops and they are listening.

That is one seriously cool looking taser.

Geez man. If the Hong Kong police is so freaking good at spotting bad guys why the heck do they need to let this drug lord free to just follow him.

Like the occasional use of gangsta rap.

You are interrupting my sega Tetris time. Throw them into the sea.

Sucks to drown. But really sucks to be drownd’ed at the hands of dudes in speedos

Did they even dub the American drug dealer.

No violence! Too late for that.

That is right. We got dynamite and bazooka. We brings a pimp gun to a bazooka fight?

“Why so serious?” That is awesome.

Man. Dude really love their speedos

Bye May. You stupid crap you just spilled the beans on the elevator.

It seems your pal is working for the Hong Kong DA.

Opener:  I was just having the weirdest dream about dinosaurs and a very condescending Jeff Goldblum or as I like to call him Regular Goldblum….wait a second…was I naked when I entered stasis. What’s that?  No…No I don’t want any of your coffee…wait…did make coffee just to make a sex jokes?

Space computer printouts…boooda boooda booooda boop

Sam Neil. CLAIRE!!

Why the black man got to serve coffee….oooh…cause he wanted to make a sex joke.

Funky Space Man.

Layman’s terms….try harder

Always passing crazy audio through some filters. Do you hear that?

Nasa has had audio file for almost a year…2 listens by ships crew. Bam…got it solved. Liberace me.

Bad stuff…bad stuff…bad stuff…we are here. Calm!

Lawrence Fishburne looks like a freak in that captains chair.  I would rather turn my seat rather my my neck.

“We have ice crystals everywhere.” Ice crystals of what?

Wonder if those flashing bombs will blow up?

Not to worry. The meat grinding tube is totally safe. It also opens and closes with spikey doors. Most dangerous designed ship ever.

How does a cd-rom get stuck.

Got some blood here…nooo..you have a butcher shop floor is what you have.

explosive decompression. I had that once. Got some Pepto and all was cool.

The gravity drive core has some pretty intricate design work on it.

Don’t touch the goo stupid

Space ship instrument panel explosions are the most common space injury.

Scrubbers are always bad. Always got to make the scrubbers.

Got to love a medical table with a drain on it.

Air Lock death in space movies

No Baby Bear…

Is it really a good idea to have the Inner Door/Outer Door buttons so close.

We’re leaving!! Did you see that crap…LEAVE!!

always watch where you are going

All the safety overrides they have do not work.

Fishburne is always a little bit behind. Run. Run. Nope…too late. Run!

Where we are going we won’t need eyes

Evil knows how to be evil. But not so good at ship management.

Man…tha/t Fishburn crawl to safety was awesome!!

Fishurne makes a lot of promises he can’t keep

Man this music is gooooood

This is the 90s Alien

You can’t stop any process that starts on this ship

You can’t punch evil. You have to hit it with a baseball bat and even then…results may vary.

Double handed shotgun cocking…use your pits…use fruit stands…use whatever you can.

I tried counting how many times the rock got that spin around in the air thing. It was a lot

You got the moves…- Chistopher Walken

Slow motion cut scene. Bam.
