Power ranking the 10 most badass quotes from Predator
Incredible film, incredible lines. Hard to argue here.
With The Predator about to be unleashed in Irish cinemas, we got the chance to chat with its leading man Boyd Holbrook and he told us his favourite line from John McTiernan's classic.
With a plethora of iconic quotes to choose from, here's the definitive ranking of the best lines from Predator.
10. "There's something out there waiting for us, and it ain't no man. We're all gonna die."
Say it when: You realise that you're genuinely up shit creek and there's no way out. Badass and ominous, it perfectly describes the Predator and the impossible situation that Dutch and the rest find themselves in.
Still though, you power through like a badass. Billy really was the unsung hero of that group.
9. "What's the matter? The CIA got you pushing too many pencils? "
Say it when: Your friend is just losing his mojo and really needs something to ease the tension. Basically, it's a rallying cry to get someone involved in some mad bastard behaviour.
Drinks, night out, hunting a ferocious killer that can brutally murder anyone at a distance and then skin their corpse? Whatever floats their boat.
8. "Come on... Come on! Do it! Do it! Come on. Come on! Kill me! I'm here! Kill me! I'm here! Kill me! Come on! Kill me! I'm here! Come on! Do it now! Kill me!"
Say it when: You're pissed off and have reached the end of your wits. It's also perfectly acceptable to use this quote if you really want something to be done in an instant, like ordering a pint.
7. "Dillon! You son of a bitch!"
Say it when: You're greeting a close friend that you're more than happy to insult. Frankly, it's much better than saying hello.
This greeting needs to be followed up by a bone-shattering handshake though. That's a rule.
6. "Stick around."
Say it when: You've killed a soldier after throwing a knife into their stomach.
Granted, that won't be too often but it's still one of Arnie's greatest lines. Ok, if your mate is thinking about bailing on a few drinks, well, you know what to say. The dry delivery and accent is essential though to make this line resonate.
5. "If it bleeds, we can kill it."
Say it when: You're facing an impossible challenge but you're 101% certain that this task will be overcome. Badass, inspirational and tough as hell.
4. "This stuff will make you a god damned sexual Tyrannosaurus, just like me."
Say it when: Ok, what the hell is a sexual Tyrannosaurus. Does it mean you just devour anything that you fancy and are an unrelenting and unstoppable sex machine? Whatever the hell it is, we're in.
This quote is probably best used when you're out on the pull and feel invisible. Hell, you would almost be tempted to get those words tattooed on your body. Outstanding.
3. "You're one... *ugly* motherfucker!"
Say it when: You meet an ugly motherfucker. D'uh! An iconic line that just cuts through the bullshit.
2. "Get to the chopper!"
Say it when: Any time, any conversation.
You can pretty much use this quote for any place/event/location that you're heading to. It fits... always.
This being said, anyone that pronounces the word 'chopper' and not 'choppppppaaaaaaaa!' needs to be skinned alive and hung from the nearest tree.
1. "I ain't got time to bleed."
The Predator star Boyd Holbrook said that this is his favourite line from John McTiernan's classic and we're not going to argue with a man that has actually gone toe-to-toe with the Predator.
"Oh yeah, stuff like 'I ain't got time to bleed.' You know, I don’t know if it was meant to be funny on the day but lines like that, they’re just bigger than life. Just like your Conor McGregor stuff. Just outlandish, bigger than life and they’re just packing the punch to back it up," said Holbrook.
Say it when: You are unquestionably, undoubtedly and definitively the baddest motherf**ker in the whole room/jungle/planet.
A line that's so badass that it might even scare the Predator.
Imagine being in that headspace where bullets, danger, death and and a gigantic alien that's slaughtering everyone doesn't even phase you.
Cheesy and hardcore in equal measure.
