Marlow is on the mark with regard to Pulp Fiction's dance scene, one of the best in the movie.

It makes Vinnie very uncomfortable to be out with the boss' wife, but he still wants to look cool and his deadpan looks contrast with the smoothness of his moves--the same deadpan look he assumed when his partner went all AVENGING ANGEL in an earlier scene. This contrast makes for comedy. Tarantino plays a lot of situations in the movie for comedy, but this one happens to have no blood. But just wait a few...

Two great actors, Thurman and Travolta, a real 100% dyed-in-the-wool natural-born killer of a classic.

Another great actor, one of the greatest: Florya - from Elem Klimov's Idi I Smotri

Jack Nicholson has so many...where to start. Loved The Shining.....Going South with Mary Steenbergen, she was so sweet, but Randle Patrick McMurphy and the "WHERE ARE MY CIGARETTES" SCENE in "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest" is where it's at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xLVSohBg_yA



...and for action, the start of any Indianna Jones film. Here's Indiana Jones Raiders of The Lost Ark

Cool choice, DMT. I saw Melquiades Estrada get buried three times in the theater with my wife. When it was over, she told me: "We gotta show that to my Dad. He's really gonna like it." She was right.



The director talks about the scene, including a botch that nobody caught:

Seeing how Dingus stole my #1 choice and couchmaster took my #2, I'll post #3 and an honorable mention....

Some great picks.


Anybody see The Sand Pebbles?

The gunboat battle in the river still blows me away. Classic case of superior numbers almost over-running superior firepower. Steve McQueen wielding a Browning Automatic rifle, then taking an axe and cutting the bamboo cable (kills an attacker with the axe only to discover it was a kid he liked) and then with ultimate cool, nonchalantly hopping back onto the gunboat as it steams by.

It had to be one take.

Robert Wise was a great director.

Another is when McQueen has to shoot his assistant.

Also, when the Chinese make them sling arms.

I need to read that book, always meant to do so.

The Sand Pebbles ,one that still stirs in the back of my mind.

As does that scene with Levon that DMT posted,never seen that.

Indifferent ,man....that will stick around.

Isn’t that what a good movie should do?
