Favorite Movie Scenes; keep it clean :-) by Loretto on 15 December 2010 1:44am
 
I've been thinking about doing this thread for a while. This scene is from one of my favorite movies of all time. The two Italian brothers who tried to make a go of a life in America have risked everything to make their restaurant a success. They have fought, kicked the bejazus out of each other on a beach in the dark of night. This is the final scene in the movie.

I love it, no words but it says so much;

The movie is called 'Big Night.'

Category: Action
Movie Title: The Bourne Identity
Actors: Matt Damon, Franka Potenta

Jason is trapped on the top floor of a five or six story apartment with a team of bad guys (CIA) trying to eliminate him. He fist-fights (and knives) the first guy in his room who ends up flying out the window. His landing was rather hard on his face.

Jason then exits the room into the stairwell of an open circular stair in which you can look between the railings and see the bottom. Ascending was a big guy with a compact automatic rifle, followed a few floors lower by another gunner. Jason lets the big guy get to the top and wastes him with the gun he gained from the first guy, before they fought by hand.

Looking down, he sees a good chance for excape. He kicks, pushes and shoves the big guy's body through the balusters, jumps atop the body, and ides it down in freefall. When he plummets past the gunman...he blows him away.

Franka Potenta then joins him at the bottom and they walk 'calmly' out the apartment entrance.

Franka Potenta had some short but powerful scenes in this movie. I almost tuned the damn machine off when she died in The Bourne Supremacy. She's beautiful.

Category: Comedy
Title: The Mask
Actors: Jim Carrey

This movie is filled with 'favourite' comedy scenes. Sure, it is computer graphic enhanced, but it is 99.9% Jim Carrey. "Pick a scene Pete!" they demand.

"OK...how about the one where the little dog gets the mask onto his face and becomes a superdog (if you made him a little prettier he would look like litte Panda, Anne). I clapped and cheered. I won't be able to do a good job of describing it, you're just gonna have to watch it again."

If you haven't seen it, you must. I nearly pissed myself seeing it the second time and was laughing and dancing...clapping and cheering...wiping tears of laughter off my face. And the music is awesome...got me hoppin' around...it was...weird.

Category: War, historical
Title: Enemy At the Gate
Actors: Jude Law, Joseph Fiennes, Ed Harris
Director: Jean-Jacques Annaud

This is a representation of the siege of Stalingrad, in which a sniper is publicly declared a hero by a Russian propaganda officer. Jude Law portrays the 18 year old hero, Vasilly Zietsev being pumped up by the older mentor, Joseph Fiennes. They face the #1 German sniper, Konig - played by Ed Harris, in a suspenseful head-to-head shoot-and-hide fight in a bombed out industrial part of the city.

Critics wanting Hollywood-style combat scenes slagged this picture. I won't try to imitate them, it is easy to find the reviews. The movie pretty well overlooked that there was a full scale war happening around them and showed us how the director thought a sniper-sniper battle could be. There were some absolutlely ridiculous scenes and absurd historial aspects to this movie, but it was heart-pounding when Vasilly, and Konig were in the middle of the hunt for each other. This battle takes place over several days, or weeks even, and this subplot is developed enough to include a lovely little boy spying for the Russians. He got close under the ruse of befriending Konig and is caught giving the Russians Konig's position. He ends up swinging from a rope for all to see and gives the viewer a real shot in the...the...love of people we all have and makes us hate Konig.

Zaitsev eventually gets Konig, but there is no clapping or cheering, as both men are honorable and follow the soldier's code, thanking each other for the challenge...and there's more sadness to the Russian side of this story. The girl whom Zaitsev loves and is the boy's elder sister, Rachel Weisz, dies just metres from the launch that would have re-united her with her Mother, rescuing her from her embattled homeland.

OMG Pete more details please I can't quite get a visual :-)

Well, I'm not sure about a favourite scene (I'm too impressed by Pete's piece above - oh...is that a double entendre??). Anyway, one of my most weepiest scenes, [and I have to tell you that if I find this film when channel surfing, and it is on this scene (right at the end of the movie) I still weep buckets, despite not having seen the rest !!(with me so far? keep up!!)] is the end scene of Edward Scissorhands, where Edward (BEEEAUTIFULLY played, of course by the delicious Johnny Depp) is left all alone, sculpting ice statues while the chipped off ice falls as snow.

It's so sad that he's all alone - well it is also VERY sad that his creator died just before giving him real hands, but I am haunted each time by how alone he is - and forever!!

You know Anne, I've never watched it, not a Depp fan. I liked him in Chocolat but that's about it.

Pete, I've seen the Mask, I like Carey, but was not fond of the Mask to be honest. Ace Ventura 2 was his funniest role in my opinion. But if you like him and haven't seen Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind please do. He's more than a comedian, he's a really good actor too and not given enough credit for that.

I hope he can make the jump from comedy to drama but it's not all a product of his ability. I see him and I expect comedy. Yeah...if one weren't in the right frame of mind, The Mask would be irritating to have on.

Personally...I'd like, say, Meg Ryan in nothing but Chocolat.
