Most shocing movie moment was whenit ended, and every Star Wars geek that exited the cinema killed themselves, or vowed to do the impossible and get a girlfriend to bring meaning to their lives again.

BTW, has anoyone doen a Best Movie Death thread. I seem to remember somethign along these lines, but can't find it when I do a search.

Stop hammering him in the face with the bottom of the extinguisher, no stop. Seriously stop, he's already dead, stop.

It was yet another gratuitous moment in a truly gratuitous film, but the brutality of it messed with me for some reason.

Yeah, dude, that totally messed me up. And the infamous rape scene didn't give me as much pleasure as I thought it would. Wow, that was brutal stuff.

Ok, you made me do this. But, on my first viewing of ROTS I just wanted to leave the theatre and for the film to end and the whole last chapter part of my life to be over. I'd just watched the Interpreter before it (it was a double bill)*.

The film came on at twelve midnight, Ok, groovy. Yeah thats nice, woooo, oh no, Hayden's acting is better than Mcgregors , why are the robots talking in a different "stupid" voice. Whats with all this pantomime acting of Palpatine, hoking around the stage following Ani and Obi. Is that a last minute post-production tacked on little walkey talkey thing R2 has there. WTF is that dream sequence!

I found the experience awful and embarrasing. I guess I knew how the TPM haters felt. By the time Nooooooooo occured I really no longer cared, I just thought please end I want this to be over. Not something I ever thought I'd feel.

That was a shock to me, then watching the film with my parents on the small screen I actually found myself enjoying it. I think it was alot to do with the films pace, seeing it for the first time was maybe too much to take in, it just dived straight into most scenes. I need another viewing really, but I really think that the film will only be able to give me a visual fix, nothing more.

*on an interesting note, it was strange to see a v.similar scene in The Interpreter and ROTS, where a confrontation is made with a senior political figure by two people in a private room. In Sith, Hayden and Mcgregor, in The Interpreter it is Kidman and Penn, and the choice is raised as to whether to kill or put the corrupt figure on trial. Pollack goes for trial, Lucas goes for death. Spooky. Has anyone else noticed this little parallell, very suitable for the zone too...

LOL. C3P0 usually takes care of that sheeit for him, so I guess its a reasonable asumption to presume he has one. But, I think that whole little comedy skit was a rehashed editing idea. I dread to imagine the creative license Lucas uses in post I really do, sure he can give nice little extra touches but sometimes it looks clear where he has gone a bit over the top and taken a liberty. It's sad as it can take the soul out of a performance, but then again there wasn't much soul on display.

Which in turn leads me to dig up Hans Buttgereits, Nekromantic, described as corpse fucking art, it features scenes of sex with dead bodies and the film climaxes with a man coming blood.

Another great of his is das todesking, a film which dwells on sucide spots with fictional accounts of potential suicidee's. Not one to cheer up your afternoon, but a fascinating film none the less. Check them out if you haven't seen em, be shocked!

City of God had a few shocking moments, mainly involving that evil little gangster Zé Pequeno... but one image I can surely remember is when they shot that little 10 year-old boy in the foot, and you see him huddling in the corner of a battered wall, clutching his foot, quietly sobbing. Perhaps not shocking, but certainly very heartening. Sorry, I have to go cry now.

speaking of evil little gangsters...

The whole "Do I amuse you?!" scene with Pesci in Goodfellas. Starts out funny, then you start to realize just how fucked up Tommy is. Also in Goodfellas, when ******SPOILER********* Tommy gets whacked.

Hey, Brock! Maybe you could enjoy watching it for just a little bit? I'd give anything to see the armies of darkness marching the face of the earth...

That wouldn't be too hard to do, just shutdown the internet across the globe.

Ok, I'm reaching a little far with that one... recall that episode of Simpsons when Itchy and Scratchy was banned and all the kids went outside to play...

Discuss.


That's probably the most iconic scene in Reservoir Dogs, but to be honest, I think the most shocking moment in the film is when Tim Roth's character shoots Mr. Blonde to keep him from setting the cop on fire.

I'd say the most shocking bit is seeing Mr. White kill two people he's very close to in order to save the life of Mr. Orange, while we know that the two men he's shot WERE in the right on that occassion. Very clever manipulation of audience loyalty, as Mr. Orange is so far undercover he condemns two men to death to save his own ass, when he knows that he's dying anyway.

Not saying anyone in that end scene is a saint, but in terms of the betrayal its shocking that an upstanding chap like Orange doesn't say something.

I was pretty shocked when DiCaprio got capped in THE DEPARTED. I didn't see it coming. And by some "new character". Loved the ending though.

Good call on that one; and not just because he's arguably the main character of the film, but the way the moment is presented. The tension just builds during the stand-off on the rooftop between DiCaprio and the Anthony Anderson character, until you're so convinced that Anderson is going to do something stupid that when he lets the two into the elevator, it's like a huge relief, and all the tension just disperses. Then the doors slide open and he gets a bullet right in the brainpan. Credit to Scorsese and his editor Thelma Schoonmaker on that scene.

The last ten minutes or so of The Departed always remind me of Hamlet, in that everbody suddenly bumps one another off.

One of the few scenes that has ever shocked me was the ending of Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer. When Henry pulls over to the side of the road to dump off that large suitcase, and you know what's in it...

That movie did all sorts of things to fuck me up.

From the [very lovely] horse's mouth:

Maria Schneider, RE: dairy products, wrote:When they told me, I had a burst of anger. Woo! I threw everything. And nobody can force someone to do something not in the script. But I didn't know that. I was too young.

So I did the scene and I cried. I cried real tears during that scene. I was feeling humiliation. Then six or seven years ago I heard that the character I played was supposed to be a boy. That maybe explained it.
