Feature Presentation…MONDAY MOVIE MEME
This week’s movie topic is all about Epic Battle Scenes…
For the most part I do not like battle scenes. They are usually my least favorite part of the movie if there is such a scene, but here are a few that still come to mind for their emotional impact.
1. Glory (1989) is about the Civil War’s first all-black volunteer army. The storming of Ft. Wagner, the last scene, had me in tears. Based on a true story.
2. When Uma Thurman and Lucy Lui fight in Kill Bill, Vol. 1 (2003) I was mesmerized and entertained, shocking even me.
3. Dogma (1999) The last scene between angels and God worked visually with angel blood and loss of wings to keep me interested. It’s been too long since I’ve seen this one!
4. Lord of the Rings:The Two Towers (2002) – The Battle of Helm’s Deep. This is what the whole movie was building toward and it did not disappoint.
There are others but these are the first that come to mind. Are there any epic battles you like? Visit the hosts of this meme, The Bumbles.
