Exactly what the title says
Death scenes, well except for the one in The Dark Knight.
Well, there is the scene where The Joker shoots Bob in the First Batman.
The Matrix- Where Carrie Anne Moss (Trinity) tells Keanu Reeves (Neo) that the Oracle told her she would fall in love with the One. That scene was so cheesy and such a cop out for an otherwise brilliant movie. It was such a Walt-Disney moment for such an awesome movie that made me cringe with disgust and still does to this very day!
See, I don't think the term Walt Disney, named for one of the greatest genius in the history of cinem, can be applied as an offensive term..
Well.... I really couldn't give a fuck about what you think, it's about what I think that matters to me!
We can tell you have an abundance of friends.
Return of the Jedi: Special Ediition. Jabba's palace. The 'new' song. Makes me cringe every time.
Oh god. This.
now-a-days its sex scenes that erks me. it just makes me think, "whats the freaking point?"
Any time a comic relief is introduced in a good movie that doesn't need one.
Also, I would point out how much I hate those one scenes in every one of Quentin Tarantino's films, but I hate most of his films anyway so it doesn't really matter.
For sure, that acknowledge I have my preferences and opinions but not necessarily like them though, lol!
The part in The Dark Knight when that Joker Batman hung hits the window. That's always scares the crap out of me no matter what.
- The Junkion dance party in TFTM86.
- The combination cave-people rave/Trinity-Neo sex scene in The Matrix Reloaded.
- The puppet sex scene in Team America
That part in Highlander when Connor outlives his wife.
That part in Taken when Bryan shoots his erstwhile friend's wife.
Trinity's death in Matrix Revolutions (I was genuinely sad).
When Joker takes out the Batmobile in TDK.
When Horatio Jackson shoots Baron Munchausen in The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, and everyone just lets the Grim Reaper take his soul.
Phil Coulson's death in Avengers.
Admittedly, the five or so minutes of talking and exposition in Toy Story 3 after the opening sequence/home video flashback, and before the toys get to Sunnyside. Maybe it's because I've seen it a billion times, but I get very bored in this stretch of the film. Now granted, this was a pretty important scene which clarified plot points such as the toys' lack of faith in Andy after years of abandonment, the departure of the Army Men, and the fate of Bo Peep and all the other toys, and sets up for the beautiful ending where Woody is proven right about Andy. But I get so bored these days watching it. I think it's also because of the purposely glum lighting in Andy's room in this scene (the companion book about the art says they intentionally made it less "warmly-lit" by sunlight than the previous two films, to show that things have changed and the toys' future is uncertain and could definitely turn for the worst).
The first 20 or 30 minutes of the Avengers. I wasn't familiar with Marvel prior to seeing Avengers, so that probably contributed. I didn't get much from the first boring half hour besides, "Oh, this guy steals the AllSpark and they get some of the team together."
Because its sad or you don't like it? I always get teary there 'cos of the song and how sort of normal they play the scene.
Because it's absolutely heartrending. As for the teary bit...
... I come close to puddling up every time I watch that scene.
You... didn't watch Iron Man? Or Thor? Or Captain America?
