If you missed my explanation of this project, I’m turning 30 at the end of June. I thought it would be fun to celebrate by talking about my favorite things. In this case, my favorite Movie Moments. Today I am continuing to count down my favorite movie moments with number 18 to 13.
#18 – Ego’s flashback
Movie: Ratatouille (2007)
Only Pixar could create a scene in which a rat has cooked a meal so delicious that the world’s most cynical critic is instantly transported back to his childhood, and not make it seem trite. In this scene Pixar demonstrates how food can affect us by transporting us, and bringing to light memories enhanced by oursenses of taste and smell.
#17 – Raptors in the kitchen
Movie: Jurassic Park (1993)
Another infamous scene involving a kitchen, though with a much less warm and fuzzy feeling.
#16 – Drew eats it in the opening scene
Movie: Scream (1996)
In a move that is now legendary, and ripped off so much that the fourth in the series pokes fun at it, the star actress is killed off in the first five minutes.
#15 – Quid Pro Quo
Movie: The Silence of the Lambs (1991)
In one of the most tense scenes ever, you can’t help but hold your breath as Clarice offers up little bits of herself with the hope that in doing so Lector will help them catch Buffalo Bill.
#14 – The car chase
Movie: Bullitt (1968)
Ten minutes of pure adrenaline. Sadly it’s only available in bits and pieces on YouTube.
#13 – Samuel L. Jackson eats it, or rather gets eaten
Movie: Deep Blue Sea (1999)
One of the biggest surprise jumps ever. I remember being in the theater and jumping out of my seat with the rest of the crowd because no one expected the big name actor to get it.
Don’t forget to come back tomorrow to see the next batch.
