Monday Movie Meme

I haven't done one of these in awhile, but I'm trying to be better about keeping up with my bloggy buddies:

Molly at the Bumbles Blog hosts the Monday Movie Meme. Stop by to see what she has to say, and visit the other participants!

This week's movie topic is all about Epic Battle Scenes...

"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."

The first one that comes to mind isn't an army v army battle, but more of a battle between two men: the chariot race in Ben-Hur. It's the most exciting 10 minutes in film. I couldn't find an embed, but here's a link to the full sequence.

Second has to be the opening scenes from Saving Private Ryan. Reportedly, this was a dead-on accurate depiction. Warning: not for the faint-of-heart.


Next is the lightsaber duel between Luke and Vader in The Empire Strikes Back, a classic and still a :


And finally we have the final scenes of United 93: The passengers v the hijackers. Taut, claustrophobic and gripping, and yet so hopeless. Gut-wrenching.

In memoriam: Peter Falk



So long, Peter Falk. You were Columbo, easily my favorite gumshoe. You were the kind yet firm grandpa who read the Princess Bride to Fred Savage and me. You were Sam Diamond in Murder By Death. You were so many people.

What architectural style are you?

You Are Art Deco





People know they're going to have a blast when you're around. You bring the fun!

You think the world is a bright and brilliant place. You think other people have a lot to offer.



You are the friend everyone invites to the party. It's not the same if you're not there.

You are a free spirit, but deep down you are reliable and trustworthy. You honor your commitments.

What award should you win?



You Should Win a Grammy




You are extroverted and sociable. You feel comfortable at any fete or soiree.

You like to be the center of attention. You have a flair for working a room.

You have no problem getting front of a group and singing your heart out. You were born to perform.

You are both a risk taker and a showoff. Whenever possible, you go for the glory.
