lame quote removedEdit

A quote I removed with an explanation of "lame quote from a lame work" has been reinserted without stating the case for it,[1] so I have removed it again. I will elaborate on the reason for removal:

First, it should be noted that the quote already appears in the article for The Boondock Saints, for which the consensus of reviewers, according to Rotten Tomatoes, is "A juvenile, ugly movie that represents the worst tendencies of directors channeling Tarantino." This is why I refer to it as a "lame work".

The quote itself is a hackneyed and inelegant expression of an idea that has been said far more memorably by a variety of eloquent luminaries. This is why I refer to it as a "lame quote".

I have real reservations about including articles on this sort of film in Wikiquote, but I recognize there is a consensus for celebrating poop culture with little regard for quotability. I do not support polluting serious theme articles with childishness or hack writing. ~ Ningauble (talk) 18:03, 11 December 2012 (UTC)
