Awesome / Animal Farm

  • The Battle of the Cowshed. Sure, things go sour after that, but the scene where the animals drive Farmer Jones back out is awesome.
  • The ending of the 1954 film, where Benjamin the donkey leads all of England's animals against Napoleon and his pigs. The look on Benjamin's face instantly spells "AWESOME".
  • The song "Napoleon, Mighty Leader" at the end of the 1999 film. Crowning Music of Awesome at its finest.
  • A meta-example is the story of how Orwell managed to get it smuggled into the USSR via Ukrainian internment camps and the people who risked their lives in printed and distributed it. Read it here.
