And when he drives that pipe right through that guy and into the boiler and tells the guy to "Let off a little steam", it's the quintessential Arnold one-liner. Ya' gotta' love it!
"Let off some steam Bennett", haha classic line, but don't forget another great line from that movie...

Arnold: "Remember when I said I'd kill you last?"
Guy Arnold is dangling over a cliff by ankles "Yeah you did say that"
Arnold " I Lied"

Oh no, don't get me started with the Commando lines......

After snapping the neck of a goon sent to make sure he stays on the plane, he says to the attendant:

"Don't bother my friend, he's dead tired."

Or how about at the end when the colonel shows up:

Col: "John, did you leave anything for us?"

Matrix: "Just bodies."

CARRIE. It's time for some bloody comeuppance!

Old school, I would say "3 Evil Masters." Total kung-fu theater vibe, got it free with my Oppo 970HD (don't ask)

"Total kung-fu theater vibe" LOL what a long winded movie name =D (asian style, making absolutely no sense...)

Ill say Survive Style 5+ and Oldboy. Irréversible was a textural one... Match Point was ok too.. man that movie just makes me want to commit post adultery murder

I remember reading it in college - left a mark. Pee-Pee and Hoo-Hoo imagery at it dirty best! And, of course, revenge in its most tragic form. I'd like to see a film version.

I can see Hopkins as Titus.
The one with Anthony Hopkins as Titus and Jessica Lange as Tamora. I didn't know the other one existed. I'm not real knowledgeable about movies in general. Anyway, if you're familiar with the play, definitely check out the movie. I'm pretty sure I picked it up at Blockbuster. There are a few script edits, and they do that "add the modern" thing in, but they don't alter Shakespeare's language. If you're not familiar with the play, I'm not sure how the experience would be. I can't imagine, though, another plot with a better revenge (served up your sons for dinner in a pie).

Hands down, no contest, the best revenge movie I have ever seen was "The Limey". Just too cool to pass up.

"I Spit on your Grave", mentioned earlier, is easily one of the most disturbing movies I have ever seen. Watch at your own risk. It's essentially an hour-long rape, followed by some (admittedly good) vengeance.

The Departed

Just came back from watching "Lucky Number Slevin", very good! Just leaving the theater I thought of this thread and that I would post about it being a very good recommendation for a revenge movie.

Gave it an 8/10 on IMDB. Its current rank there btw is 7.8:
