    A few of my favs are from True Romance

    When Clarence (Christian Slater) shoots Drexl The Pimp (Gary Oldman) in the face - "You thought it was pretty fuckin funny huh?! We'll FUCK YOU.. FUCK YOU, YOU PIECE OF SHIT!! *BANG BANG*"

    Virgil (James Gandolfini) beats the shit out of Alabama (Patricia Arquette) before she stabs him in the foot, blinds him, sets him on fire, blasts him in the chest with a shotgun, then beats his head in with it.

    so many badass moments in that movie I could go on for days.

    Kill Bill Volume 2:

    Elle Driver: That's right. I killed your master. And now I'm gonna kill you, with your own sword, no less, which in the very immediate future, will become... my sword.

    The Bride: Bitch... you don't have a future.

    Just about anything with Tex Cobb. His big hairy biker/prisoner/gay guy characters are great.

    Once Upon a Time in the West:

    harmonica: did you bring a horse for me?

    one of three gunmen: well, heh heh, looks like we're..... it looks like we're shhyyy one horse [other two gunmen laugh]

    harmonica [holding a bag in his gunhand looking on with resolute badassness, shaking head slowly after 5 sec.]: you brought two too many

    [gunmen's smiles slowly fade]
    [drawn-out moment of stillness]
    [the talking gunman attempts to draw his gun, but harmonica drops the bag quickly, whips out his pistol, and guns down the three gunmen (bDAT bDAT bDAT!) before the last one barely gets off his shot from a sawed-off winchester that catches harmonica in the shoulder]

    [​IMG]

    so fuckin' badass!



    the thing that's so ill is the mythical texture leone gave it. the gunman clearly moves faster than harmonica, but harmonica's calm sure-handed draw and slightly slower-shooting owns em all. nuance is so delicious.

    difficult to recall.

    i would have definitely said "yes" years ago, but i don't know how i'd view it now

    if i were you, i would have just waited to catch it on tv or something... maybe even in fullscreen

    oh, i've been meaning to ask, when you saw "predator" on amc, bravo, or whatever, was it in widescreen?




    off-topic as it isn't a moment, but gian maria volonte is one of the baddest fuckers to ever grace a screen

    only saw him in fistful of dollars and for a few dollars more, but he's a highly regarded actor in italian film history. dramatic skill is clearly evident in ffdm, so i'd like to see more of him in other genres.

    predator was on cinemax and it was fullscreen.

    i was at best buy just browsing, not intending to buy anything but the new john mayer, but it was just sitting there for 5.99 so i figured i'd take a chance. besides, if it were on tv it would probably be on usa and when movies play on tv they always cut it for time/content. i'd rather see the whole thing

    how could you?

    just say "no" to full-screen, unless it's one of teq's favorite van damme movies

    i recall a couple weeks back you said serenity was coming on there... was it in full-screen and did you watch all of it?

    riz should be pissed

    hey, i'm right there with you, i don't buy fullscreen, i tell others not to, but if it's on tv, i can't call up cinemax and tell them to give me a personal widescreen presentation. this is why i love tcm, all movies in o.a.r.

    that's why you say "fuck cinemax!", don't watch what they show, don't pay for the channel (if you're paying), and wait to see the film elsewhere in its intended form


    the bastardization of art has got to stop altogether

    generally i don't watch cinemax as it is usually a line-up of catwoman, the island, and meet the fockers on an endless loop, but if i didn't have it i would've missed out on classics like 'the ox-bow incident' and 'body heat'. most films are not readily available [if at all] in their true "intended form" [on film in a theater] seriously, how far do you take this? do you want to eliminate home video altogether for movies shot on film as it's intended form is to be exhibited on film in theaters. if you're not against video, would you say it's preferable to watch a movie in widescreen on an ipod or psp than in fullscreen on tv? can you imagine what it would be like if you could only see movies in theaters? how many of your favorite films would you be missing out on?

    for me, it's like seeing the michaelangelo's david or the mona lisa in a textbook as opposed to going to florence or to the louvre to see it. i'd rather have seen it in a book to at least know it exists and have some appreciation for it, even in an abridged/truncated form, and in hopes of seeing the real thing one day, rather than not experience it at all.

    whoa whoa whoa, you're going too far

    "intended form" really set you off

    guess i should have said "original aspect ratio"


    i'm against films being screened in different ratios with some of the director's vision being cut off. i believe the pictures on screen should be shown how the director wanted them to be.

    what do i prefer between a widescreen film on an ipod and fullscreen film on tv? neither. ipod "movies-on-the-go" are only going to spawn more mtv music video type films, and fullscreen is blasphemy period.

    seeing the ox-bow incident on cinemax is fine since it was filmed in that ratio anyway. body heat, i personally wouldn't have watched. i would have waited to rent it on dvd or something.

    i don't see how you can compare waiting to see a film in widescreen on a dvd that's readily available to waiting to see firsthand a michaelangelo work in an overseas museum... then again, this is probably due to the "intended form" throwing you off.


    i didn't mean to offend you in any way... i'm just really really really anti-fullscreen

    it pisses me off

    i get dry heaves thinking of the good, the bad, and the ugly and once upon a time in the west being shown in 1.33:1

    i understand though that there are some people who own small tv sets that make widescreen viewing less desirable, so i do see the market for full-screen films... but i wish more people were educated on how a film needs to be watched and that the market for full-screen would shrink
