Awesome: They Live!
  • "I have come here to Chew Bubblegum and kick ass... and I'm all out of bubblegum."
  • The alien cop tells him "you know, you look as ugly to us as we do to you." To which he responds: "Impossible."
  • That fist fight. The five minute one where just as you think it's over, each of the combatants gets back their second wind... then their third... their fourth... their fifth...
    • John Carpenter points out that said fist fight took three weeks (!) to rehearse.
  • Nada destroys the transmitter for the aliens' signal, and the last thing he does before dying is to give the aliens who just shot him the finger. Epic way to end the movie.
  • The transition shot of Nada and Co walking out of the warehouse between the police driving into pursuit. The extreme close-up of Nada is one of the best transition shots.
