Better Off Dead. I was going to use one of the "I want my two dollars" scenes, but this is my favorite.

This is probably my favorite scene from The Sting - because of the way it plays with viewer expectations. We know that Doyle Lonegan has hired an assassin to take out Johnny Hooker (Robert Redford's character). When Johnny and Selina meet, we're rooting for them as two lost souls. connecting at a diner.

So as the scene unfolds, we think that the guy who appears behind Johnny and aims, gun in hand, is the assassin. But the scene suddenly inverts the build-up. Excellent movie making.

The Parade Scene: Ferris Bueller's Day Off

This scene would be wonderful if it were just the parade scene. But what elevates it to me is the counter point dialog and interactions between Cameron and Sloane, about what's next in life. Which nicely mirrors the deeper context of the movie about the end of childhood.

The Big Lebowski - The Bereaved Donny's Ashes

I've told my family that after I'm dead, I don't think it will matter one whit to me what happens with my bodily remains. So any ceremony they choose to do will be for them, and not for me. Thus they should do whatever has meaning for them. And that being said, if it is important to them to have me provide guidance to them for said disposal of my remains, an option would be the Kipu Kai shoreline on Kauai.

Kipu Kai is also very windy. So I've also cautioned them to plan in advance to avoid a Lebowski moment. And I think I would smile if they used a Folgers can. Though I don't think it would matter to me if they used Maxwell House, Leggs Egg, Tupperware container, Ziploc baggie, or tchotchke doll to contain my "remains" prior to disposal.

More Cool Hand Luke - 50 eggs. With Luke laid out in crucifix at the end.

I first saw Cool Hand Luke when I was in high school, at the Bloomington Drive-In Theater in Bloomington Minnesota. The Drive-In was on the south side of I-494, between Portland and Cedar Avenues, very close to the old Metropolitan Stadium (now the Mall of America). I'm sure I wasn't there on a date, because I remember too much of the movie for it to have been a drive-in movie date. :D

Sadly, the last drive-in in the Twin Cities may be toast. According to the article, there are still 5 drive-ins left in Minnesota. When we moved here, I thought it was odd to have drive-ins where the sun doesn't set until 9 PM in the summer.

A fun one from Rio Bravo, one of the better westerns that's stood the test of time.

Two of the smoothest voices of the times, too.


From the Outlaw Josey Wales:

Rio Bravo was one of my favorite John Wayne movies. Ricky was just a teenager then.

Another one from The Big Lebowski -- I'll try to extract the clip.

Anyway, it's the opening scene -- Jeff Bridges is in Ralph's grocery buying half & half for his white Russians. Gum-smacking cashier gives him the look while he writes a check for $0.67.

Watching the Better Off Dead scene brought back memories of my favorite John Cusak film…The Sure Thing.
