10) Dumb and Dumber
Scene: Lloyd and Harry eat hot candy.
Significance: Id call this the Citizen Kane of movie scenes. First Harry and Lloyd make asses out of themselves and spray ketchup and mustard all over themselves, and then the bad guy dies. You could make a movie out of this scene alone.
Relevance: I often times would eat hot candy, and this scene tells of the harsh yet true repercussions that follow such course.
Comparable Bad Movie Scene: That part in Citizen Kane when everything got all serious. Boring.
9) Silence of the Lambs
Scene: Hannibal Lector throws a plate of goo on Clarice.
Significance: Seriously, if the word pwned had to be put towards one example, this would be it. He fucking threw his juice on you.
Relevance: He really raises the bar for the rest of us, here. Its hard to top saving a pan of your genes for countless weeks to throw on a lady.
Comparable Bad Movie Scene: Countless pornos.
8) Revenge of the Nerds
Scene: The nerds beat the jocks.
Significance: If theres one thing I love its jerks getting beaten.
Relevance: Im a nerd and I never win at anything.
Comparable Bad Movie Scene: The 1994 World Series.
7) Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Scene: King Arthur defeats the Black Knight.
Significance: Though greatly smaller and weaker than the Black Knight, Arhtur prevails, but not easily.
Relevance: Its funny when the Black Knight kicks him.
Comparable Bad Movie Scene: Forrest Gump when that dude gets his legs blown off. What a downer.
Scene: Rambo stands unmoved as a tiny little Chinese guy shoots at him..
Significance: That is how little he thinks of you, small Chinese man. You are firing A GODAMN GUN at him and he is completely fine with that. You also fail to shoot him.
Relevance: Badass dudes always get points.
Comparable Bad Movie Scene: Sticks and Stones, kids shooting each other.
5) Full Metal Jacket
Scene: The fat guy shown above loses his mind and steals a gun and bullets. He proceeds to shoot his drill sergeant and himself in the process.
Significance: Yes, you may be a drill sergeant, but you were still an asshole to me, and now Im going to shoot you.
Relevance: He who laughs last.
Comparable Bad Movie Scene: Ernest Goes to Camp, when Ernest shoots his counselor in the head.
Scene: Charlie Kaufman finds himself in a state of writers block with no feasible exit. He begins to scroll through interior monologue within his head, and the results are funny: Ill write now and reward myself with food later.
Significance: The self assurance that a reward is pending helps people write.
Relevance: Hes funny and has next to no self-confidence.
Comparable Bad Movie Scene: Tommy Boy when Chris Farley sucks at selling car parts.
3) Deuce Bigalow. Male Gigalo.
Scene: Deuce tricks Allison into dipping her boobies into a fish tank.
Comparable Bad Movie Scene: Huh? Did you say something?
2) The Godfather
Scene: Michael Corleone is set to kill. A gun has been stationed in the bathroom and he is fully aware. He asks to be excused, is, and returns with the gun, shooting both men.
Significance: I love the mob, and seeing this almost brings a tear to me eye.
Relevance: The ear shattering noise in the background only adds to the effect, you cant watch this scene without getting a little excited.
Comparable Bad Movie Scene: The Godfather Part 3. Ugh.
1) Reservoir Dogs
Scene: Mr. Pink has just been slugged by Mr. White. Theyre exchanging harsh words while aiming their guns at each other. As this is going on, Mr. Blonde enters, brandishing a soda and an unconcerned look.
Significance: Mr. Blonde is the most badass character Ive ever seen portrayed in a movie. He has a cool outlook and an interesting outlook on how to achieve results.
Relevance: Mr. Blonde goes on to hack off a cops ear. This scene is still better. Are you going to bark all day, little doggie, or are you gonna bite?
Comparable Bad Movie Scene: Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, Austin vs. Dr. Evil. STOP ACTING LIKE A FIRST YEAR FUCKIN' SPY.
