In case you don’t subscribe to my YouTube channel, and missed my explanation of this project, here is a brief recap. I’m turning 30 at the end of June. I thought it would be fun to celebrate this milestone by talking about a bunch of my favorite things over the course of the month. I’ve already finished one list of favorites (my favorite books), over on my YouTube channel, which you are welcome to check out by clicking on this link here.
Today I am going to count down my favorite movie moments. I’ve been doing these lists in batches so, we’ll just focus on the first six, in order to give each one a moment of due attention.
#30 – The entire opening scene
Movie: It (2017)
The tension in this scene is so good, and I still have nightmares involving a really disturbing clown and sewers thanks to an amazing performance by Bill Skarsgård.
#29 – “I remember all of them.”
Movie: Captain America: Civil War (2016)
One line and you realize all those years Bucky has been used and brainwashed, some part of him, the real Bucky, has been awake the whole time. He not only knows of the terrible things he has done as the Winter Soldier but he remembers all those experiences, all those deaths, and he has to relive them, over and over again.
#28 – “You’ll Be A Dentist”
Movie: Little Shop of Horrors (1986)
Steve Martin’s slight Elvis impersonation is perfect for this sadistic dentist’s theme song.
#27 – “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You”
Movie: 10 Things I Hate About You (1999)
Every teenage girl in the 90s immediately swooned when Heath Ledger started singing Frankie Valli’s famous pop hit.
#26 – “Princesses On Parade”
Movie: The Swan Princess (1994)
We get a chorus number in the middle of an animated adventure story based on Swan Lake, and it is glorious.
#25 – Barn Building
Movie: Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (1954)
A chance to show off the moves of their professional dance hires, this is one of the most joyous scenes in any movie musical.
Come back tomorrow to check out my number 24 to 19 favorite Movie Moments.
