This week's movie topic is all about Epic Battle Scenes...
As we end Sandy's selection month of June here at the Monday Movie Meme, for today's topic she has selected movies that feature epic battle scenes. Please visit Sandy's blog, You've GOTTA Read This for her full intro. post and picks. As for us, we had a lot of fun revisiting the guts, gore and graphics that make up awesome scenes of conflict in the movies. Share on your blog those battle scenes that are so epic, they make you stop everything to watch. Link back here so that others can find you. And don't forget to visit your fellow participants!
- Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002) - Battle of Helm's Deep. The choreography, cinematography, carnage and chaos are absolutely magnetic.
- Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (1980) - Hoth Snow Battle. Even these old school graphics hold up remarkably when watching Imperial Walkers get tripped up by circling Rebel cables.
- The Warriors (1979) - Melee with the Baseball Furies. I'm sorry, but if you wear face paint and baseball uniforms as your gang colors, you deserve to have your bats used against you in a beat-down.
- Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003) - The Bride vs. Tokyo - specifically young Gogo and then the Crazy 88's. Quentin Tarantino goes overboard with Uma in a visually balletic and glorious piece of campy and over the top bloody mayhem.
- Saving Private Ryan (1998) - The landing at Omaha Beach. This movie's opening sequence by Spielberg is quite possibly one of the most accurate, horrific and stunning sections of film regarding this lopsided and remarkable battle in WW2.
