Here are some of my favorite scenes from movie:
- From Clerks II: Randall takes some well-deserved shots at the Lord of the Rings trilogy which, in my opinion, are some of the most boring and overrated films of all-time. In the name of fairness, however, the LotR guys does make some very astute observations about the quality (or lack there of) of Hayden Christensen's "acting."
- From Casablanca: This is the best scene from arguably the greatest film ever made in English or any other language. Lazlo and the European exiles in Rick's bar drown out the Nazi's with a stirring rendition of La Marseillaise. In their expressions, you can see the consciences of Rick and Capt. Renault starting to rattle them from their selfish neutrality.
- From Evita: In one of my favorite cinematic musical numbers, Che Guevara (played by Antonio Banderas) sarcastically mocks the adulation given to Eva Duarte de Perón upon her death. The movie pretty much goes downhill from there, leaving me so bored that I locked myself in a closet and cut my thighs while listening to Skinny Puppy (not really).
- From Shawshank Redemption: Red finally gets paroled for speaking his mind instead of saying what he thinks the board wants to hear. The scene is a great analysis on the nature of regret and self-rehabilitation.
- From The Usual Suspects: The final scene of this movie defines complete theatrical pwnage. Do not click here if you haven't scene the flick.
