Great Scenes from Movies You Disliked:

 76 terlwyth, Sat, 29th Oct '11 12:19:38 PM from Berzerkeley, Kalifornien Relationship Status: Not war
The gravestone has been stolen
Any scene with Sirius Black in Harry Potter And The Prisonerof Azkaban, the rest of the movie was Narmy Adaptation Decay.

Also, in Batman Forever the scene where Bruce Wayne lectures Robin and tries to talk him out of revenging himself on Two-Face. It was the only good Robin scene and one of the few darker moments in this topsy-turvy, disjointed movie.

Oh and Jim Carrey blowing up the Batcave

Nolan's Batman films already proved that averting sequel escalation can work well. The League of Shadows' scheme in Batman Begins was much bigger than anything the Joker did, but The Dark Knight still felt like much higher stakes because Joker was so much better at playing mindgames with Batman.
Exactly.

Also, A New Hope vs. Empire Strikes Back. In the first a world killing super weapon has to be destroyed lest it wipe out the rebellion and cement the Empire's power forever. In the second, our intrepid cast dicks around for two hours. Which one is widely considered the best?

Bubba Ho-Tep: The scene where JFK says "Let's get decadent". My friend and I quote it often.

You are the first person I've seen who didn't like Bubba-Ho-Tep! I'm rather shocked!

[up][up]I though it was okay, but nothing outstanding.

The Gate is a rather medicore film about kids dabbing into witchcraft. But when the demons show up, shit goes from sucky to awesome.

Off the top of my head:

  • Any scene with Terrence Stamp in The Adjustment Bureau, especially the one described in the quote page for The Evils of Free Will. If the film focused more on THAT instead of the stupid romance plot, it would have been a decent movie.
  • Stanley Tucci's death scene in The Core. "What the FUCK am I DOING?"

On a more humorous note, every time the topic comes up I say that Timeline was a shitty movie but worth seeing just for the sight of Gerard Butler getting his ear cut off and going from yelling in pain to giggling like a school girl yelling "IT'S ME! IT'S ME!". It Makes Sense in Context.
Any child can follow rules. True adulthood is knowing which ones to break and when.

The scene in the Death Note movies where Soichiro draws the Line in the Sand and nearly everyone takes the opportunity to flee. I think it's stolen from Khartoum, but it's certainly one of the better choices for thievery, and they chose a great place to put it, too.

The Order 66 sequence in Revenge of the Sith.

The scene in Not Another Teen Movie where the school counselor ignores the prefabricated freshman cliques forming before her eyes. (And I walked out midway through in the theater. It says something that I remember a scene fondly.)

"Not While I'm Around" in the Sweeney Todd movie, probably because a) Toby works best as a child, b) Bonham-Carter is more matronly than Lupone, and c) there are no chorus parts to gut from the protesting score.
Well! Is she here? Is Alberta GRA here?

C'mon, guys, DO IT.
The entire Skull Island sequence from Peter Jackson's King Kong was just plain amazing. The rest of the movie was kind of boring, though.

Dude, my take is just the opposite. I was all, "who put the anonymous gorefest in my misunderstood-monster movie?" (But I guess you'd like Jackson's early work, on the bright side.)
Well! Is she here? Is Alberta GRA here?

C'mon, guys, DO IT.
[up]Definately. I liked King Kong himself as well, especially that tender scene when they are on the ice in the park. I didn't care for the long wait until we see Kong at the beginning, though that was supposedly done on purpose because Jackson wanted it to be a faithful remake of the original movie.

The scene in ''The Ninth Gate' where Frank Langella sets himself on fire. Whoops.

Overall I didn't care much for Lynch's Lost Highway, but the scene where the demon asks Pullman to call him at the party is nightmare fuel gold in my eyes.

Not live action, but while I thought Brother Bear was boring, that one scene where things get serious and magical stuff happens is awesome. It's honestly better than the entire movie. It's listed here... http://www.avclub.com/articles/our-favorite-film-scenes-of-the-00s, 35888/

I changed accounts.
I'm going to go with Ghost Ship as my choice. The wire scene, if you know what I'm talking about.

Hells yeah, though I actually liked that whole movie.

Anyway, Superman Returns was a lame movie, but the "save the falling airplane" scene was legitimately cool, even if it was nonsensical. Oh, and the "holy shit, eye shooting!" and "WROOOOOONG!" scenes. [lol]
I am now known as Flyboy.
I personally think that Iron Man is over-rated but I love the scene where Tony Stark admits that he's Iron Man.
Gentlemen, as of this moment, I am that second mouse.

David Bowie's incredibly creepy (Even by David Lynch standards) cameo in Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me.

Equilibriam. I though some of the gun-kata scenes were pretty awesome, even if the movie seems like it ran out of budget 3/4 into the movie, but still.
When I walk on the street counting my steps, magic keeps silent and reality stalks me.

Pirate AND writer!
Even though I think The Hunger Games is, as a whole, rather boring when it isn't inducing nausea, the death of Rue was done very well. I also liked all the scenes with the Gamemakers and Seneca talking to President Snow, simply for the different perspective of the Games we get.

Has anyone mentioned V's alliterative entrance in V for Vendetta yet? Because I will.
Of course, don't you know anything about ALCHEMY?!- Twin clones of Ivan the Great
NO PLACE TO HIDE
The Cat is a tremendously silly but not especially good Hong Kong action/sci-fi/horror/WTF film. However, it features the greatest cat vs dog fight in the entire history of cinema.

Don't believe me? Watch it for yourself:

Didn't particularly care for the Transformers movie, but I did like the scene where the Autobots (except for Bumblebee) arrive on Earth for the first time. Also, found the part where the Autobots hide in Sam's backyard by transforming into vehicle mode somewhat amusing.

Egon, but never forgotten.
In Star Trek: Insurrection, there is a scene on the Ba'ku planet where Geordi gains eyesight, and Picard joins him in seeing a sunrise. LeVar Burton's performance really shows why this planet is special, and why Starfleet is willing to go underfoot to utilize its powers.
