A Scene You'd Like to See in a Movie

I'll accept the chalenge.

Here are what I imagine would be the ground rules.

Any type of movie. Provide a little bit of background - provide the setting. Then capsulize the scene. Feel free to discuss others' ideas, but in keeping with the spirit of Foo, don't be too harsh.

Example:

The movie is an action/comedy, and the main character is sort of an everyman private investigator, but quite witty and bold.

While on his way to a meeting, he gets stopped at a red light behind a new BMW. A cigarette butt gets tossed out the window. Our hero immediately slams the car into park, exits, picks up the still smoldering butt, and says to the driver. "I think this belongs to you." and before the driver can respond, he flicks it into the back seat. He walks back to his car, and pulls around the BMW on the green light, and in the rear view mirror you can see the beamer's driver frantically scrambling for the butt.

I want to play correctly when I get a decent block of uninterrupted time. But in the meantime...


I want to see the final battle at the end of The Hobbit, when Gandalf stops the armies of men, dwarves, and elves and proclaims: "Orc armies have arrived from the south...behold! They ride upon wolves!"

Then everyone looks up from the battlefield to see giant dire wolves bearing down upon them, and join forces.

Now if only the studios can get their act together and make this prequel to The Lord Of The Rings.

That entire scene from the flicking of the cigarette onwards needs to be done in slow motion. There must be a long close-up and protracted shot of the butt flying through the air and landing in the back seat... which is somehow stocked with drums of some flammable liquid. And the main character must be shown walking away non-chalantly while the fireball is blossoming slowly in the background. Some cool guitar riff from a popular rock song must be playing on the soundtrack. and be sure to include Jerry Bruckheimer's name in the credits at the end.

I want to see a guy come into work, throw his computer out an 11 story window, and leave.

office space and fight club have come close, but it would be cool just to have the window breaking.

I want to see a love scene between lodi and roseanee barr. Well I don't actually want to SEE it!

Actually I want to see a movie where a guy rides a bike and is COOL. You know, the opposite of the 40 yr old virgin. Show me a scene with a well chiseled cyclist that pulls up to a club and has chics all over him.

I just want to see certain cliches broken. I want the girl to run through the forest without tripping over. I want the guy fighting in the cool sunglasses to take them off. I want the guy that starts the slow clap to choke on his own saliva. etc etc

Zombie orgy.

Type of movie doesn't matter. Setting and set-up doesn't matter. It's relation to the plot (or lack of) doesn't matter.

Yessir, a good 'ol fashion zombie orgy.

That's probably already done. Most likely, you'll find it on a local hotel's pay-per-view menu. Hit up your closest Marriott and find out.

Does she become part of the aforementioned zombie orgy? BTW, your wish is fullfilled in the movie House of Wax. Fast forward to the scene otherwise you will have wasted 90 minutes of your life instead of just five.

In this day and age of excessive CGI, it's nice to see someone who values authenticity and old-world artistry.

I would like to see the unnamed missing ex mod face off with the boys from down under in a full tilt boogie death match choreographed by Jackie Chan and the ghost of Fred Astaire.

I think we have differing views of what constitutes a snuff film. This would be evidenced by the fact that she is still alive...


Again, not too mean, eh?
