Now that we can do youtube links (thanks John, this place rocks!) -- I'm thinking a thread for our favorite movie clips would be good.

I'm big time into movies -- especially the ones that flew under the radar, I call them "sleepers" ... those relatively unknown movies that rock your world.

So let's share some clips and special moments from movies that at the same time, we are recommending others to watch.


No spoilers, please. I like to be immersed and surprised by the movies I watch. :)

My favorite movie of all time is The Matrix. No, it's not because everyone else liked it, it's because of the deep, rich, satisfying philosophical content. The sci-fi and martial arts stuff and the awesome special effects... they were just icing on the cake.

Here's one of my favorite scenes -- most people don't realize until I tell them... this is an ingenius, perfect portrayal of the Evangelical Christian mindset... whereas the "Matrix" to the Christian is ... the non-spiritual world around us.. where demons (i.e. "agents") roam freely in, out, and among the unwitting....

GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR ok this is not good. I can't imbed any of the available videos. So click and watch via youtube please. It's only 48 secs.

Not bad, amigo.

Ok this one is from another one of my all-time favorite movies and I think maybe at1 has seen this clip.

Be forewarned: There are some racial slurs in this clip. And they aren't gratuitous, they add to the realism. But let's just say the *n* word is used a lot. If you can get past that, then this scene should entice you to watch the movie.

It was Tarantino's first big movie, yet, many people have not seen it. There are more famous actors in this movie than any other than I'm aware of. Some, i.e. Samuel Jackson, don't last more than a couple minutes before they meet an untimely end.

The backdrop is: Christopher Walken is a mob boss. He's looking for a kid that (unwittingly) made off with his dope after a gunfight with some thugs. The kid (Christian Slater) thought he was grabbing his girlfriend's belongings in a suitcase. What he ended up with was a suitcase full of cocaine worth hundreds of thousands. Dennis Hopper is the kid's Dad. The kid just visited Dad on his way to California to unload the dope. His Dad is a security officer now, but used to be a cop.

Christopher Walken, mob boss, is desperate to find the kid and his dope. So it's time to interrogate Daddy and find out where the kid went....


This is a fairly lengthy cllp, but, it is very much worth it. Believe me.

Um, I'm thinking a 70 minute clip is asking a little much. Especially for an old, warn-out 1937 movie. :think:

:lol: :lol:

Got anything shorter? A clip of a special moment in the movie?
