Movie Moments and Revenge

How many of you have one movie scene in particular that you get goosebumps whenever you watch it?

I have a couple.

First up?



The bus scene from Almost Famous where they all start singing Tiny Dancer. I LOVE that scene! Always gives me goosebumps. Something about it is so simple, but really speaks to me.

The second one is from Gone With the Wind.

Remember the swelling music when it shows Tara? I love that scene too!



I just had a bad movie moment though. Someone chose Hostel 2 to watch here at the USO and it made me so sick I actually had to put my head between my legs. I wasn't even watching it! That was just listening to it. Ugh..I hate gory movies.

So what are some of your favorite or least favorite movie moments?

Oh..and now for the revenge portion of my post. In case you are a new reader and didn't know I have a very smart, naughty and revengeful Miniature Pinscher named Boomer. He's particularly naughty when Sean is away. When I got home last night from work I took him outside and he refused to do anything. Fast forward to me going to bed and I notice the blankets and sheet are wet. From where Boomer revengefully PEED on them! It's not that he's not housetrained. He is and has been for about nine months. He lets you know when he needs to go out. This act was just him being mad that I went to work and left him at home. Needless to say he got in BIG trouble!

Argh! Little dogs can be so frustrating. I don't want to even imagine kids yet.

I love that Almost Famous moment! You know that Kevin Bacon movie, I think its called She's Having a Baby? The moment where he realizes they are both ok...I've watched it a million times. :)

And the revenge thing extends to cats, too. When Tim went to Iraq Maverick peed on his pillow. Nasty!

Roxie has peed for revenge once after I spanked her for dumping over the trash....again... She went straight over right in front of my closed bedroom door, looked straight at me and peed. I kid you not. RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME! Oh I was not pleased.

LOVE that part of Almost Famous!!! Xoxo-BLC

I had a dog that did that! Why are they so ornery?

Okay, I love the scene in Romeo and Juliet when they see each other through the fish tank.

I also love several scenes in Meet Joe Black.

There are so many movie moments I can't even begin to list them all!

I had a chihuahua that would act that way when my husband would deploy. It was horrible, but when my husband would return she would act like a little angel so he never believed me! Haha

lola said...

oh my god about the dog!! I've heard of them attempting revenge. Matt's dog (a lab -- think about the amount of pee in that one) totally peed on Matt's bed one night. hahaha. He's a sweety though, so I don't know if it was really revenge for something or just.. crazy. :P

Boomer and Howie must have ESP. Last night we were laying down in bed, Howie looks at us, promptly turns around, aims his b-hole at our faces and rips the most disgusting fart a human has ever smelled. Horrific.

The scene I like most from Almost Famous is where William is talking to the music critic and lamenting about not fitting in and stuff, and Phillip Seymour Hoffman (music critic) says, don't worry about them, "You'll meet them all again on the long journey to the middle." so true :)

I have a terrier mix that does that when she is mad at me. Sometimes I think she is more trouble than my son!

Via said...

At least little dogs come with little pee? ;]

kd said...

Oh, PS about Howie: The other day I noticed a pair of freshly washed panties were missing. Couldn't find them for days. 3 mornings later I am awakened by a French Bulldog wretching noise. Homedog puked up my panties on the duvet. omg

He can be friends with my somewhat vengeful little dog. Walker would happily pee on the bed with Boomer. It'd be like male bonding. =D

Have you considered crate training Boomer for when you go to work? I have two dogs, and the one who has destructive tendencies is crated when I'm not home. The older of the two stays in the room with the crated dog because I have a baby gate up across the door way. But...the dogs LOVE getting in the crate when I leave because they always get a treat. They associate me leaving with getting a dog cookie, so they totally look forward to it! :) And best of all, all of my personal belongings remain in one piece! ;)

Ugh animals in general can be such a pain sometimes! My cat puked on the bed the other day, and he covered it up with the fleece blanket I keep on my bed! Thankfully, I didn't sit in it, but it was GROSS!

I have to say I've never seen Almost Famous. Guess I should check it out!

Crazy Shenanigans said...

Oh no!!! I would have been so mad if I would have came in my bed been wet and messed up like that!

I can't watch that movie Hostel either!

I love that scene from Gone With the Wind. Although even just hearing that music theme does it for me

That's one reason why I couldn't work at the USO. I cannot handle gore and guts and the noises they make during those scenes! I'd have to find a way to work with my head between my knees!
