I've been sitting on this way too long and figured it would be a good post just before the extended holiday weekend. And setting up the poll will give Hammer an excuse to get out of doing the dishes after the Hammer family feast tomorrow.
Some of you may recall that 3WN had the start of another movie poll several months ago when I asked people to make their nominations for the best ever movie scenes. We had a good response (Movie and sports posts always generate a lot more comments than our political posts. Wonder what we should think about that?) I had to leave out many good ones to get the list to a manageable size so check out the link above to see what other people suggested. Here are the 15 that I think should make the final cut:
A poll for you to vote in should be posted in the left hand column sometime soon. Feel free to post write-ins or complaints in the comment section.
No LOTR, no Almost Famous, nothing from Alien. Jambo, you disappoint me so fiercely.

Well, the death of Boromir and "Tiny Dancer" both made my initial list but it's pretty tough competition. As for Alien, I know we both agree it is the best of the series, but I think the movie is impressive for its overall tone more than any one scene. A case might be made for the baby alien thru the chest scene but I don't know that it is really in the same league with the 15 that I went with.
The poll itself will be up later today.<< Home
