Picturing the bros of Final Fantasy XV driving through iconic movie scenes has been saving me from boredom for the past few weeks. This post is a work in progress. If you wish to see more, you can check out another moviepilot post and also my blog here.
This so-called intellectual face-off between an irksome, loud mouthed self-obsessed wannabe cinephile and Woody Allen is put to an end with a dialogue "You know nothing of my work!” This figurative and seminal sequence ends with a never-imagined sudden appearance of Marshall McLuhan himself. Holy Shit!
And who can forget the fourth wall – "Boy, if life were only like this"
Inspired by a day-light robbery of a Brooklyn bank, Sidney Lumet directed Al Pacino & John Cazale in a film about a robbery gone wrong in every imaginable way possible, in the social backdrop of a hectic 70s America. Al Pacino’s character is at the end of his tether – his personal life fucked up, his monetary benefits going into the void and police swarming around like bees; tries to incite the public with his fiery yelling –“ Attica!”
Being a scary judge of civil disorder and riots, he changes the whole subtext in the entire scene.
Not really a fan of animation films now a days. But as a kid, this classical ballroom waltz scene from ‘Beauty and the Beast’ was simply opulent and dreamy. Fabricating 2D characters and combining them within an impressive 3D environment provided ample camera motions and created a new revolution in the animation industry.
This is Disney at its best.
Be it the shots or the dialogues, every scene in the movie is awesome. Loved the ‘Funny How’ scene where Ray Liotta makes a statement and Joe Pesci just goes bonkers (which he always does) over him. Pure effin’ comedy.
But then, you've the Copacabana Tracking Shot. Synched in the background with a song from ‘The Crystals’, we see Ray Liotta and his new girlfriend gliding through a backdoor, into a kitchen and into the Film History books. Apparently, this was shot 8 times – Perfection.
Alfred Hitchcock, a mysterious flying airplane and an empty airfield - ‘Nuff said. This anonymity and deceitful suspense can be noticed in Spielberg and Nolan movies.
One of the most repeated movie dialogues of all time -“Life is like a box of chocolates.”
Leader, slave, gladiator – Spartacus is yet another Roman lubricated with determination and righteous anger. (I saw Ridley Scott’s Gladiator before this magnum opus.) This scene is bestowed with the best human warfare nature of all – Never rat your leader.
And parodies galore! Boy, if only Stanley Kubrick had directed Napoleon…
Tom Cruise on the telephone yelling ‘Show me the money’ on the repeated demand of Cuba Gooding is an Academy award winning moment for the latter. The movie has some of the most memorable lines as in "You had me at hello." and a baby faced Tom Cruise saying "You complete me".
Moloko Milk Bar
White gooey font, weirdly positioned female sculpted tables, Beethoven, Malcolm McDowell’s sassy stare, red band violence, narcissism, ultra sophisticated culture, milkshake doped with LSD.
Nothing to see here...move on!
Steven Spielberg’s black and white dissertation on the subject of Oskar Schindler and the Holocaust episode leaves behind buckets of red color code.
She is the single most symbolic moment in the entire monotone film - captivating, horrific and tragic.
Jules Winnfield's version of Ezekielism, it's immediate cult status and his ardent group of followers. - The rise of Samuel L. Jackson
The movie that won 11 Oscars!
Alien abduction has never been so spooky.
An Evil Dead vibe. A tremor episode. A Mother-Son bond.Spielberg’s sinister approach to a sci-fi cliché effectively manipulated the sequence.
A DeLorean, a so-called Flux Capacitor, the 88mph barrier – that pop crackling and smoke billowing fantastical inaugural launch of ‘Time Travel’ leaves behind wonderful movie memories and ofcourse scorched flaming roads.
