100 Reasons Why I Love Movies: Part 2

Part 2 of a series of 10, where I try to show people why I love movies as much as I do. Featuring (in no particular order) some stellar lines, moments, subtleties that have made me one of those weirdos that goes to the movies by himself more often than not.

I only have three “rules” that I’m trying to follow with this list and they are there just to make it have more variety:
1. Try not to repeat a movie more than once.
2. Try to have two listings that aren’t individual scenes per post.
3. Try to include 1 guilty pleasure per post.

Hopefully I will inspire some deep seeded passion in you for the cinematic arts and we someday have late night discussions about Fellini or Kurosawa…or we can just talk about why Dirty Work is so funny.

Fair warning: There are spoilers in my description paragraphs and the videos themselves but I will try to keep the bold titles spoiler free so you can easily skip one where you think I might spoil something.

In case you missed it, you can find part 1 here.

100 Reasons Why I Love Movies: Part 1

Part 1 of 10 of a list of scenes, trends, lines, moments, or anything involved in movies that have, over the years, shaped my ever-growing love of cinema. The list is in no particular order and I will try to add as many youtube clips as I can. If not I’ll probably add a picture or the trailer or something (although you should probably just watch the films in there entirety to get the full effect of the scenes). Although I didn’t want to restrict myself to much I did have a few very lax rules:
1. Try not to repeat a movie more than once.
2. Try to have two listings that aren’t individual scenes per post.
3. Try to include 1 guilty pleasure per post.

There will probably end up being spoilers eventually, but I’ll try to leave them out of the bold titles (when I say what the scene is and what the movie is). Then you can just skip over them if you want to watch the movie first. I hope you enjoy reading this list as much as I enjoyed watching/remembering the moments that lie in it. Continue reading
