Let off some steam

Sometimes we need a vacation from our vacation, when we get back and have lots to do. Start on the to-do list and then take a break. Let off some steam.

This is a compilation of great one-liners in movies, right before the good guy kills the bad guy. It’s violent, obviously, and there’s some swearing, but it’s good for listening practice if you like movies: small chunks of language and lots of idioms and colloquialisms.

My favorites are the Arnold Schwarzenegger lines. And the one from a 007 (I think it’s “Die Another Day”) at the 2:07 mark.

“Time to face destiny.”

“Time to face gravity.”

But my all-time favorite is Arnold in “Commando”: “Let off some steam, Bennett.” Which unfortunately isn’t in this video, but is elsewhere.
