Awesome: No Country for Old Men
  • Anton Chigurh blowing up a car in front of a store using a piece of torn cloth and a lighter in No Country for Old Men.
    • The scene near the end where he gets his arm broken in a car crash and treats it as no worse than a scratch, even when a bystander points it out.
      • Every scene with Anton Chigurh is a mix of Crowning Moment of Awesome and Nightmare Fuel.
  • This is one of the few movies that starts with a Crowning Moment Of Awesome, Ed Tom's voiceover speech, which so perfectly encapsulates the feel of the movie and the despair of his situation that it leaves you breathless
  • Carla calling Anton's bullshit about choice and his "moral code" even if he later kills her anyway. It's a combination of "The Reason You Suck" Speech and You Keep Telling Yourself That. Chigurh even suffers a brief and subtle Villainous Breakdown.
  • It's pretty impressive how long Moss was able to survive while on the run from Anton. Not only that but he was also able to wound him a few times!
