    Best Car Chase - Torn between Ronin & The Bourne Supremacy
    Best Beating - Layer Cake (OMG what a beating! 32MB)
    Best Battle - I suppose it'll have to go to one of the LOTR films, only I can't remember which one is which! :eek: :p

    I can't think of any more categories, but either just name your own for the categories I've already mentioned, or add your own to those existing, and add your own new category and favorite for the next person to have to think up :D You with me? :eek:

    You ARE bored.

    Let's see.

    The best battle is definitely in ROTK.

    Ooops...late, gotta go.

    Most Brutally Realistic Battle Sequence - 1st 20 minutes of Saving Private Ryan. After that, the whole movie goes straight downhill, though.

    Having just watched RotK yesterday, I'd agree it's one of the top battle scenes.

    Worst line in movie history: "Is it raining? I hadn't noticed" (Four Weddings and a Funeral)
    Best line in movie history: "Found this spoon, sir" (Monty Python's Life of Brian)

    H'obviously these are a little subjective! ;)

    Best scene in a movie:

    Edward Norton beating himself up in his boss' office and then, when the security gueards come in he says "please, dont hit me again."

    Best screw up in a movie: (ok, maybe not the best but funny nontheless) In days of Thunder, when one of the characters is introduced to Tom Cruise's character, Dick, she says "hi Tom, nice to meet you" (How in the world does that get through?)

    Brightest Teeth in a movie: Mathew McConahae (butchered that, I'm sure) in Sahara. My lord those are the brightest teeth I've ever seen!

    Band of Brothers wasn't a movie.
    Platoon also has a shout in there, seeing as it was made by a VET, you gotta think it's going to be realistic! (BTW Don't see "Hot Shot" films - you can never take charlie sheen fully serious again!)

    BTW there's some pretty brutal stuff in Alexander (which I thought was a very good movie contrary to the reviews). Horses being sliced and diced - people actually getting scars from battle!

    My two cents:

    Best Ending: Being There with Peter Sellers
    Best Ending 2: well, not quite the end, but the climax, Paths of Glory
    Best Scene Ever: the crop duster scene from North By Northwest
    Best Scene Ever 2: Tuco's run through cemetary and the climax to The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

    Notables:

    - Murder of Don Fanucci in The Godfather: Part II
    - T-rex escape in Jurassic Park
    - dance scene from Band of Outsiders

    Ronin Owns all others as far as car chases. I want an Audi S8, but the scene with BMW 5 series was much more fun to watch.

    Best Car Chase: I know it's not a movie, but nothing beats the car chases from Dukes of Hazard when the General Lee jumps a river and then magically can keep on driving

    Best Beating: Fight Club

    Best Battle: While not a battle in the typical sense, Die xue shuang xiong had a nice gunfight battle at the end I thought.

    Best Ending (Drama): La Haine
    Best Ending (Comedy): Johnny Stecchino (but not in the US version)
    Worst Ending: Billy Elliot

    I agree with that one. That has to be one of the funniest deaths I've seen.
