Rest in peace, Rutger Hauer. Thank you so much for the best monologue in science fiction cinema ever. This was not in the novel and it was not in the script. These were your words. You will not be forgotten.

Not much connection to HP calculators, but I guess (no: I know!) that many of us calculator addicts are generally also science and science fiction minded.


Wow, I had not heard he had passed away, thanks for posting this Max. I agree, some of the very best lines in any movie ever, SF or otherwise IMHO. What could easily have been a brutal, 1-dimensional character was actually a subtle, beautifully acted, tragic character I will always remember. Hauer was also excellent in "Escape from Sobibor".
