The Raid was a fucking rad movie about dude-throwing and rabbit punching skinny guys to death. The only bad part about The Raid was it was so good, they were given a cameo in The Force Awakens as space pirates, which must have sounded so cool to these guys until JJ Abrams said “okay so here’s the scene. An old man and a young girl are going to steal your ship. Don’t do any of that karate bullshit and let a giant tentacle monster eat you. Aaaaand action!”

I think there must have been some kind of running drunken bet on those movies to see who could come up with the weirdest, most pointless cameos. “Daniel Craig as an idiotic, nameless, faceless guard!” “Simon Pegg in a giant rubber suit as a space junkyard owner!” “The future king of England as a background Storm Trooper with no lines!”

With all the other odd choices, if you told me the weird frog nuns in Last Jedi were voiced by Samuel L. Jackson, I’d believe you.

God, I’ll never forget being in a theatre full of people all audibly cringing simultaneously when that dude got stabbed with the broken lightbulb.

This movie is fantastic. After watching this, I was able to break through with my Indonesian coworker, by greeting him in the way this movie taught me (multiple knee strikes to the face, followed by some polite conversation about whatever it is the fuck.)

I have never seen this movie, but I use it as an excuse to use the term “Ikearate” roughly twice a year.

All movies should come with bootleg nonsense-English subtitles, even ones made in English originally. They just add so much.

The sequel to this movie is pure liquid gold. The Raid: Berendal. I pray to Thor there will be a third.
