Horrible, but beautifull!
« on: November 08, 2008, 09:30:41 AM »
It happend a few times now that I was watching a movie, where something horrible happened, but the scene was beautifull. Well directed scenes, with the use of the right music and acting. Here are my favorites:

3. The Rock (By Michael Bay)
When the Navy Seals are held at gun point by Col. Hummel's men and suddenly the shooting starts. The massacre, which is mainly shown in slow-motion just turned out to be so good!
2. Armageddon (Also by Michael Bay)
The Freedom is hit by a rock and is going down. We see from the cockpit of the independence that the Freedom is crashing, we hear the last radio transmission and stuff.
1. The Mist (By Frank Darabont)
From the moment they are in the car to the end credits. Perfect use of music and acting! Really good directing! Ofcourse, it's horrible, but beautifull!

Do you get my point? What are your favorite 'Horrible, but beautifull!'-scenes?

I totally agree with The Mist (it was a dramatic and intense scene) and I'll add also the end of 3:10 to Yuma,very very well done but sad and the amazing scene from Unbreakable when Elijah falls down from the stairs,with his cane broking into pieces of glass :-X

There's quite a few scenes like that in The Lord of the Rings trilogy. And in Schindler's List. Very sad movie but directed perfectly too give you that sad emotion. Jaws, when the shark destroyed the boat. Jurassic Park, when the Tyrannosaurus tore apart the car. The Lost World: Jurassic Park, when the Tyrannosaurus stuck its head though the waterfall and ate the guy (the creators of the movie still don't know how they were able to get the mechanical dinosaur's head thought the water without a malfunction). Spider-man 3, when Harry died, sad but perfect lighting and acting. On a more positive feeling side, The movie "The Blues Brothers", it was so funny when that one girl tried to kill them but just ended up destoying the building they were besides or in, and they, Jake and Elwood, would just get up and walk off like nothing happened.

Pan's Labyrinth, when the girl gets shot, but then ends up back in her kingdom.  Amazing scene.  So brutal, yet so beautiful and sad and happy, so many emotions in one scene.
I see the world Lucius Hunt, just not the way you see it.

300: Battle scenes
See the villain's larger eyes insinuating a just-off-normal perspective on how they see the world? I see signs Lucius Hunt; just not as you see dead people. I am so very happy we saw..each other, and no I will not tell you what color love is. Stop asking.

because they are so gruesome, but so beautifully choreographed/filmed/lighted/scored

"The Rock" had some great scenes.
