So I have recently gotten hooked on Grey’s Anatomy, and find the humour to be quite entertaining. I saw an episode where Dr Miranda Bailey went from “not knowing who Han Solo was or about the carbonite scene” to extolling the virtues of Han Solo and his totally non-loser antics. The whole scene just came together really well and gave me a good laugh. I guess someone does like sci-fi more than they let on!
I know this is not the greatest video, but it is the best I could find.
Goodness, this scene! When it opened with Dwayne Johnson giving the lecture, I was like “oh, I am sure this is just gonna be some scene with some kids for the lols”, but man, it was so much more than just that. Manis and pedis for everyone after, sure, but man, this scene is fantastic all round. Dwayne Johnson leads a girls soccer team in the haka and it is truly both hilarious to boot and at the same time rather inspiring, as you can see it means a lot to him and the girls take it seriously. It is more than just a choreographed skit, especially when you see how much respect was actually afforded the scene, that the haka was blessed by the elders, everything. That’s just great, in my mind.
Man, this sure was a movie that knew what it was about and how to embrace it. There was tons of silly stuff going on and giggles to be had, but a standout scene from this is hands down the Britney Spears/zombie sing out that happened. Oh man, really now. It seriously cracked me up as everything about the scene is insanely ridiculous, and yet it feels right at home in this movie.
Wow, yeah, I haven’t done one of these in a while, and stumbled on this scene the other day and it cracked me up, as it always does. The McManus brothers and their banter is something that one cannot help but enjoy immensely. Naturally this scene of the brothers shopping for some mission gear is hilarious, as it really comes across as boys who watch a lot of movies being let loose in a weapon store and being told to pick anything their heart’s desire. Excellent scene.
Only Lovers Left Alive is a strange little film. Dark, comedic, sweet. Adam is a reclusive, depressed musician whose wife of the last few centuries reunites with him, and their odd but perfect little relationship gets some rejuvenation. A scene that stands out as something truly beautiful is this dance that the two shared after Eve chastises Adam for his self obsession, and not seeing the bigger, more beautiful things in an endless life.
I am rather fond of BBC’s Sherlock, and recently got my husband to watch it with me, and he had a total blast. There is plenty humour going on all the time and it is witty and sharp. Watching John and Sherlock together is absolutely fantastic. There was a particular scene where Sherlock requested that John hit him in the face, and before you know it, the request devolves into an all-out fight.
This scene… was beautiful. Unexpected. Up until this point, Klaus had just been a crazy, psychotic killer Original. Heck, he was even the one that sent Tyler out to bite Caroline, so I was really surprised to see him show up on her doorstep, and more than a little wary. Then he sits there and has the sweetest, most touching conversation with Caroline and I was amazed. What a beautiful side. He owed her nothing, and there was nothing here to indicate it was a romance, it was just a selfless moment where Klaus shared something, inspired something in Caroline – he stood to gain nothing, and yet he still did it. I didn’t trust the turn in character one iota initially, but it was the first time we got a look at something genuine within Klaus, and it really is stunning. It turned me into a fan. I liked him well enough before, but he was never really a layered character, and this single scene changed my entire opinion of him. From here on out he just grows. Well played, writers, well played.
So I started watching The Sopranos recently, and I gotta say, I am a fan. In this latest endeavour, we met Paulie Gaultieri, one of Tony Sopranos guys, and he is so entertaining. Paulie is hilarious, ridiculously proud of his heritage, and the one that gets the most peeved and the fastest when it comes to cultural appropriation. Man, there was that time where he stole that thing out of the one coffee shop purely because they stole from the Italian dream. Golden man, golden. Anyhow, Tony suspects a rat in his organisation, and Paulie is tasked to check out his colleague, Pussy. Totally besides the point. The point here is that this car horn had me in freaking stitches. It is perfect, and totally something Paulie would have hooked up in his car.
Okay, not technically a Sporadic Scene, sure, but holy crapsticks man, I love this! My dear Chop, I am sure that you will find the same type of satisfaction in this, you and I can be so bad. This speaks to my soul. Anyway, I will stop waffling, check this out if you haven’t already, lots of fun and totally worth a few minutes of your time 🙂
Alright, alright, I freaking adore Elijah Mikaelson, this is known. A scene I downright loved was the scene in which Elijah gave his word that Klaus would not kill the witch, Agnes. Klaus was all good and ready to ignore Elijah’s urges not to kill the witch, until Elijah told Klaus he had given his word that Klaus would not kill Agnes, and Elijah is nothing if not short of extremely trustworthy, and even Klaus knows when to back off. Note it looks like Christmas has been cancelled for Klausie and a mutiny is building, but that soon changes to sheer pleasure as Elijah takes control of the situation because really, who the heck would screw with the Mikaelsons, anyhow?
