Sad Factor: How about laugh factor because I don’t know about you, but I laughed my ass off)

I didn't find it funny at all, and I was kind of horrified that the theater did.  I think this is where I started hating Quentin Tarantino--40 minutes into the first movie of his I ever saw.

Fair enough. I think for me it was in the idea that comedy comes from the unexpected happening. It was an over the top bit of 5 second film but it came out of nowhere.

Seeing as how by this time, you had already scene a man ass raped, I find your decision to hate Tarantino at this moment a little peculiar but that is just me I guess

Same, was it because you don't find death funny?

Director: Pete Docter, Bob Peterson
Starring: Ed Asner
Gore Factor: Minimal

I hate to admit it, but I have never seen this movie, so again I will need to deflect to anyone who has seen the film

11 Dude’s Head Blows Up –  Scanners (1981) – 63 points
(3 of 14 lists. (Highest ranking - #1 Shodan)

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/HY-03vYYAjA?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/HY-03vYYAjA?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US</a>

Director: David Cronenberg (wow, really?)
Starring: Jennifer O’Neil, Stephen Lack
Gore Factor: um…yea, pretty darn high
Sad Factor: I would say low but I am not too familiar with the character
Wow/Kickass Factor: SUPER SUPER HIGH. Like Glen’s death in Nightmare on Elm Street and the boat/dancing/death scene in Ghost Ship, Scanners is able to create an extremely unique death scene for the ages

Synopsis:

From Le Wiki:

Scanners are people with powerfully intense telepathic and telekinetic abilities. ConSec, a weaponry and security systems company, captures a homeless scanner named Cameron Vale (Stephen Lack) at a shopping mall. Vale has been able to get by using his telepathy to make people eating near him allow him to steal some of their meals. Vale psychically overhears two women talking negatively about him, when suddenly one of them begins to convulse. Without knowing he is responsible for this, Vale attracts the attention of two ConSec agents, who shoot him with a tranquilizer dart and drag him away. He supposedly possesses tremendous scanner power, which ConSec wants to exploit, but he has become a derelict because he cannot cope with the overload of hearing others' thoughts. Meanwhile, ConSec's first Scanner is brutally murdered at a press conference by Scanner renegade Darryl Revok (Michael Ironside). Revok escapes, killing five people in the process.

10 Marion Crane – Psycho (1960) – 64 points
(4 of 14 lists. Highest ranking - #1 Johnny Unusual)

<a href="http://" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://</a>

Director: Alfred Hitchcock
Starring: Anthony Perkins, Janet Leigh
Gore Factor: Depends, is chocolate syrup gory?
Sad Factor: Mid…I don’t know, I wanted Marion to escape with the money and have a happy fun day
Wow/Kickass Factor: High. This is one of the most famous and classic scenes in all of cinema. Even a shot for shot remake sucks in comparison. There can be…only one

Synopsis:

Hey girls, have you ever been warned not to date a momma’s boy? Did you ever wonder why that was? Well, it’s because of this film. Psycho is a psychological thriller about how fucked up a boy can get when his mother is the only feminine and controlling influence in his life. Also, it’s about symbolic birds of prey. Also, it had masturbation in it, but I personally could not tell until I watched the shit remake.

Also, it’s about crossdressing

I had Arbogast as my #23 entry, was mine included? Because if it's 2 lists, and theoretically just me & Johnny, that only adds up to ~27 points. Shouldn't this be 3 lists? Are my 3 meager points part of the 48 total?

This is what I have: Johnny Unusual at # 2 (24 Points) + Kete at #23 (3 Points) + Cole @ # 5 (21 Points) = 48. Am I wrong?

I had it at #23. But I'm not Kete! ("WHO ARE YOU?!") I'm...Sutter Cane.

Yesssssss! I had this as my #3. The math seems kosher on this one. :)

Sad Factor: I would say low but I am not too familiar with the character

I don't even know if the character has a name! He exists for his bald head to get exploded. If there's any grieving it's very far offscreen (I would assume he received a closed casket funeral).

...*IMDB research*...

Ahh, okay. This character is billed as "First Scanner", played by Louis Del Grande.

Here's his IMDB character page: http://www.imdb.com/character/ch0109579/

Fare thee well, First Scanner. We hardly knew ye.  :'(

Obligatory screen cap.



Did you ever see that scene in Scanners where the dude's head blew up?

I was more horrified that the whole theater spontaneously found it hilarious I guess?

I think death, if treated cartoonily (or if it's especially stupid) can be funny.  I can't think of an instance in which someone's brains are accidentally blown out all over the rear windshield of a car would ever be funny.

Be thankful you didn't see The Devil's Rejects at theaters. From accounts I've heard, teenagers were cheering on the rapist serial killers. And once I read the internet signature "Captain Spaulding is my hero."  :angry: And they weren't talking about the Groucho Marx one.  :grr:

I'll tell you a Tarantino moment whose audience reaction sickened me: in Kill Bill Volume One, when it's revealed that a comatose Uma Thurman's body has been pimped out for comatose rape. People just thought it was just hysterical when the dude held up that jar of Vaseline while explaining to the would-be rapist how he'd need to lube up her dry vagina. "Sexually violating coma patients, LOL."

As for the Pulp Fiction scene you object to: I find the shotgun scene funny because the actual act is quick & it's played out like a comedy of errors. I think part of the humor is their amorality and their panic is purely the inconvenience of the situation (it is, in a very black way, "situational comedy"). What I don't find so funny is a few minutes later when Tarantino delivers that endless self-written monologue about "dead nigger storage". That gives me the creeps way more than the splatter.

(Well, if anything, this post should confirm my anti-rape credentials.)

at the very end of devil's rejects when freebird kicked in and the whole family memories montage kicked in, for a full 3 seconds, i felt bad for them. then  all the shit these psychopaths did kicked in and I just enjoyed the scene of them getting shot.

also i'm the only person i know who laughs at the exorcist.

the greatest reaction shot i ever saw though was one of the first time the trailer for bruce almighty aired in theaters. because the words one man is given the powers of god lit up on the screen.... and then it cut to jim carrey. everybody half laughed and half groaned at the same time with a few "we're screwed"'s thrown in.

10 Marion Crane – Psycho (1960) – 47 points
(4 of 14 lists. Highest ranking - #1 Johnny Unusual)

<a href="http://" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://</a>

Director: Alfred Hitchcock
Starring: Anthony Perkins, Janet Leigh
Gore Factor: Depends, is chocolate syrup gory?
Sad Factor: Mid…I don’t know, I wanted Marion to escape with the money and have a happy fun day
Wow/Kickass Factor: High. This is one of the most famous and classic scenes in all of cinema. Even a shot for shot remake sucks in comparison. There can be…only one

Synopsis:

Hey girls, have you ever been warned not to date a momma’s boy? Did you ever wonder why that was? Well, it’s because of this film.

Also, it had masturbation in it, but I personally could not tell until I watched the shit remake.

Really, only 47 points (also doesn't that make it much lower?  I'm going to assume there was a different number.  Also, no video?  I'm guessing there was an error there too.

If I may

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/8VP5jEAP3K4" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/8VP5jEAP3K4</a>

What makes this death amazing is that the movie just KILLED OFF THE MAIN CHARACTER HALFWAY THROUGH THE MOVIE.  So who is our main character now?  Norman Bates, the killer (and though the audience didn't necessarily know that at the time, we are still watching a troubled young man cover up someone else's murder, so he's our main character). Putting aside the significance of that death in the film narrative, the death itself is horrifying in the way it's shot, the setting (hell, even if she was on the can she wouldn't feel more vulnerable), the way your mind makes you think that the knife touches the body when it doesn't and even the legendary musical sting.  Now I'm not saying it's the number one, but at the bottom of the top 10?  The other films'll really have to do some impressin'.

9 Vizzinni –  The Princess Bride (1987) – 64 points
(4 of 14 lists. (Highest ranking - #3 Cole Stratton)

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/U_eZmEiyTo0?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/U_eZmEiyTo0?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US</a>

Director: Rob Reiner
Starring: Cary Elwes, Mandy Patinkin, Andre the Giant
Gore Factor: Low
Sad Factor: Low. Come on, who WASN’T rooting for Wesley? Although, maybe if I remembered ever watching the scene and not knowing the Dread Pirate Roberts was Wesley, maybe I would think differently
Wow/Kickass Factor: SUPER SUPER HIGH. Not only is it quoted to death, but the death of Vizzinni is a visual representation of hubris at it’s best

Synopsis:

Ahhhh Sicily. An island off the coast of Italy and full of…well smart people apparently. Too bad for any Sicillians, someone forgot to tell them that being too much of an egomaniac puts you in a pretty bad situation…thinking you are invincible. This invincibility might come from wits or might come from strength, but either way, don’t let any false sense of superiority allow someone to get the better of you. Although, nothing can stop true love, so maybe Vizzinni was as smart as he thought he was, he just got in the way of true love.

8 Roy Batty  –  Blade Runner (1982) – 64 points
(3 of 14 lists. (Highest ranking - #1 Darth Geek)

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/ZTzA_xesrL8?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/ZTzA_xesrL8?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US</a>

Director: Ridley Scott
Starring: Harrison Ford, Sean Young, and Rutger Hauer
Gore Factor: Low
Sad Factor: High. Much like my opinion of HAL (of which Compound’s write up was great, but I stand by my view) Roy was a machine that got feelings. Ya know, maybe giving robots feelings will effect them in ways other than them signing “Life Forms…a little / life /forms.” One thing that def happens when you give robots feelings…they want to LIVE!!!!!!!!!
Wow/Kickass Factor: SUPER SUPER HIGH (I have a weird feeling all the rest will have this distinction). Batty’s speech is beautiful and poetic and gives added weight to the ending and theme of Blade Runner (depending on which version you watch)

Synopsis:

You guys remember that episode of Futurama where Bender became a human and then ate and drank and boned everything in sight for a week? How come SciFi movies like Blade Runner and 2001 focus on THAT element of making robots more human? Maybe the gluttony guy in Se7en was really robot that had been turned into a human

7 Alex Murphy  –  Robocop (1987) – 65 points
(3 of 14 lists. (Highest ranking - #2 Anais.whatever)

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/VclFEwUGdY0?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/VclFEwUGdY0?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US</a>
(FYI: Super NSFW)
   
Director: The same dude who directed Showgirls (no really)
Starring: Peter Weller, Nancy Allen
Gore Factor: I am not sure…maybe the fact that it was marked NOT SAFE FOR WORK will tell you
Sad Factor: High. Come on! Alex is a good cop and he just wants to help the citizens of Detroit. That is why they had to bring him back as the title character
Wow/Kickass Factor: SUPER SUPER HIGH. I have never seen this movie in its entirety. When I was a kid, my family and I watched this movie (my dad’s pick) and as soon as this scene happened, my mom turned the movie off and we never finished it. Yet, throughout the many years since then and now, I cannot forget this scene.

Synopsis:

So, this might be a little known fact to anyone outside of Topher Grace, but Kurtwood Smith is an asshole. He wasn’t acting in this film, it was actually a documentary. Then Kurtwood Smith decided to give acting a try.

Robocop is a great satire documenting violence, the American dream, and the media. So, there is more to it than just badass deaths….I still probably won’t actually watch the film though
