Best Bits of Movies
Nominate A Three Minute Clip for Mini Oscar

 11:33 am on Jan 22, 2009 (gmt 0)


We've had the Best movies, Worst movies (and a few in between), but how about the best / most memorable / silliest / funniest clips?

Off the top of my head (and in no particular order)

1. The last three minutes of Some Like It Hot*

2. "I'm having what she's having" from When Harry Met Sally

3. "That's not a knife - this is a knife" from Crocodile Dundee - OR the Scimitar scene from Indiana Jones

4. "Dueling Banjos" from Deliverance

5. Steve McQueen's Flying Motorbike from The Great Escape

Please don't think deeply about this - if they don't float to the top of your brain, hovering between the conscious and subconscious, (© Sigmund Freud) they are disqualified.

*Probably beats Gone With The Wind for the Best Movie Punchline Ever, but that's another thread for another day ;)

"Are you suggesting that coconuts migrate?" from Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Well, if we're quoting Python, literally any 3 minute clip from Life of Brian. From that film alone:

Brian: You are all individuals
Chorus: We are all individuals
Brian: You are all different
Chorus: We are all different
Single man: I'm Not

"Suicide squad; ATTACK"

Any clip of the jailers

Inigo Montoya vs. The Dread Pirate Roberts (Princess Bride)
The most memorable ambidextrous duel ever! ;-)

Top of my list, hands down . . . .

Something About Mary: "Is that hair gel?"

A cult following: from Be Kind, Rewind, the scene in the alley with "the disguise" is the coolest visual in any movie, ever.

A personal favorite: Saving Silverman:

"That's quite a grip you have there, I'll bet you're a great m**********. What do you do, three, four times a day?"

"Judith escaped!"

Yeah, I like Jack Black . . . lol . . .

The chase scene from Raising Arizona after H.I. says, "I'll be takin' these huggies and any cash you got."

Bladerunner - Rutger Hauer "I've seen things you people wouldn't believe..."


 10:04 pm on Jan 22, 2009 (gmt 0)

Dang! Missed that one.

the one that keeps looping around my brain now is the "mirror scene" from Airplane, with Robert Stack.

I must have seen it 20 times, and I still get a headache trying make sense of it :)

Bounty Hunter: I'm looking for Josey Wales.

Josey Wales: That'd be me.

Bounty Hunter: You're wanted Wales.

Josey Wales: Reckon I'm right popular. You a bounty hunter?

Bounty Hunter: Man's got to do something for a living these days.

Josey Wales: Dying ain't much of a living boy.

Sounds better [youtube.com] in person. :)

Nihilists! <snip> me. I mean, say what you like about the tenets of National Socialism, Dude, at least it's an ethos.

One of several thousand unforgettables from the great Big Lebowski.

Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels

"Let me tell you about Hatchet Harry. Once there
was this geezer called Smithy Robinson who
worked for Harry. It was rumoured that he was on
the take. Harry invited Smithy round for an
explanation. Smithy didn't do a very good job.
Within a minute Harry lost his temper and reached
for the nearest thing at hand, which happened to
be a fifteen-inch black rubber <cough>. He then
proceeded to batter poor Smithy to death with
this; that was seen as a pleasant way to go . . .
Hence, Hatchet Harry is a man you pay if you

Miracle on 34th Street (1947)


Kris Kringle:
Well, young lady, what’s your name?

I’m sorry, she doesn’t speak English. She’s Dutch. She just came over. She’s been living in an orphan’s home in Rotterdam ever since… Well, we’ve adopted her. I told her you wouldn’t be able to talk to her, but when she saw you in the parade yesterday she said that you were “Sinterklaas,” as she calls you, and that you could talk to her. Well, I didn’t know what to do…

Kris Kringle to the little girl:
Hallo! Ik ben blij dat je gekomen bent!
(Hello! I’m glad you came!)

O, u bent Sinterklaas!
(Oh, you are Sinterklaas!)

Kris Kringle:

Ik wist dat u het zou begrijpen!
(I knew you would understand!)

Kris Kringle:
Natuurlijk! Zeg maar wat je zou willen hebben.
(Of course! Tell me what you’d like to have.)

Niets. Ik heb van alles. Ik wil alléén maar bij deze lieve dame zijn.
(Nothing. I have everything. I just want to be with this nice lady.)

Kris Kringle:
Wil je een liedje voor me zingen?
(Would you like to sing me a song?)

Kris & Girl:
Sinterklaas kapoentje,
Geef wat in mijn schoentje,
Geef wat in mijn laarsje,
Dank u, Sinterklaasje!

(Sinterklaas kapoentje,
Give me something in my shoe,
Give me something in my boot,
Thank you, Sinterklaas!)


I cry every time I see it!
