This ain't bidness...

The 1991 New Jack City is not a very good movie, by any metric: sort of low-rent wimping-out-on-itself blaxploitation only with the gloss of pretending to have a "Message", but there is one great line in it, delivered by the right actor: Ice-T--an authentic badass--to Wesley Snipes, just after beating the living shit out of him:

Well, listen, you dirty little draft-dodging faux-cowboy dry-alcoholic entitled sociopathic little preppie shithead, your fucking imperial-fantasy-wet-dream war is still taking my students to serve overseas on a mission that is Fucked Up Beyond All Recovery:

"This ain't business anymore. This is personal."

Don't you ever forget. I'm not done with you yet.
