Favorite Film Clips
« on: May 16, 2012, 12:54:15 AM »
Over in a commentary I just wrote about the Greek Farce, I included a Clip from "Von Ryan's Express", a 60s era WWII film.  It got me back into Mr. Peabody's WAYBAC Machine thinking about some other old WWII Flicks I saw a zillion times over on Late Night Television in the 1970s.  Films that were replayed many times because the local station in NYC bought the rights to show them.  One of them was "Donavan's Reef", with John Wayne, Lee Marvin and Jack Warden.  I think perhaps this film is the origin of my fascination with Polynesian Culture and the deep seated HOPE that someday when all is said and done, we can leave all this shit behind and return again to the Big Island of Hawaii to find our Freedom once again.

Bet you all know which character RE identified with in that film also  :icon_mrgreen:

Anyhow, I will post up other great Film Clips in the future in this thread, and ecourage all of you folks to do the same.  It is sort of the Film version of the DD Juke Box.

Best scene from one of my all time favourite films, Blade Runner.

Favorite Film Clips: Terminator II "Come With Me if you want to LIVE!"
« Reply #3 on: May 16, 2012, 11:13:15 PM »
On a slightly different note from my first Clip, one of the best scenes from the "Terminator" series, which has many awesone scenes and one liners.  However, this one provides a great metaphor for me for some obvious reasons my long time readers can figure out I am sure.  :icon_mrgreen:

Favorite Film Clips: Last of the Mohicans-Alice's Suicide

After both Uncas and Alice are Dead, Hawkeye and Chingachicook keep after Magua.  Nobody left to Save, they risk their lives anyhow to make sure he is DEAD.  Why?  VENGEANCE!

You have ALL of it here in one film clip, self-sacrifice, battle, vengeance, redmeption and the Great Beyond.  Hard to beat this film clip in my book.
