Gaston's Top 5 Favorite CBM moments

Gaston's Top 5 Favorite CBM moments

Since everyone seems to be doing these then I thought I'd throw mine in as well. Not that anyone asked for it or cares.

I could write an introductory paragraph, not that any of you would read it anyway. Or I could just jump right at it. Yeah, that's what I'm gonna do. So here goes:

5. Spider-Man: "With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility" - Cliff Robertson as Uncle Ben.

One of the most iconic scenes not only in comic book movie history but also cinema history in general. The delivery by the late Cliff Robertson is absolutely perfect and his reaction to Peter's response is absolutely heart breaking.

4. Batman Begins: "I Respect The Mind's Power Over The Body" - Cillian Murphy as Jonathan Cran/Scarecrow

I loved Cillian's portrayal of Scarecrow in this movie. He gives an incredibly chilling performance. Shame he didn't have more screen time.

3. Thor: "Father Is Dead" - Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Tom Hidleston as Loki

Unfortunately, I couldn't find a clip of this scene. One of the most heart wrenching scenes I have ever seen. The moment where Thor finally breaks. Everything about this scene is fantastic. The delivery of the lines, the music, the pacing. I love it.

2. V For Vendetta: "Good Evening, London" - Hugo Weaving as V

Though audiences are rather split on this movie, some like it while others dislike it, it is undeniable that Hugo Weaving is brilliant in this scene and the entire movie.

1. Sin City: "An Old Man Dies, A Young Woman Lives" - Bruce Willis as Hartigan

My personal favorite CBM. While I love the whole movie, the tragic story of detective Hartigan is what keeps me coming back.

Well there you have it. Go ahead and sound off in the usual place. Criticize it or whatever.

V for Vendetta and Sin City are tops when it comes to CBMs. Hugo Weaving's portrayal of V alone is worth a spot on anyone's list.

Such an amazing voice!

The audio and video ads on your website are annoying enough that I no longer enjoy it.

First of all, it should be a top 10, especially if you are including Graphic Novels...Second, there are glaring holes Heath Ledger Joker scenes?...or Nicholson scenes for that matter...Nothing from Watchmen? What about the Peter Parker reveal in Spiderman 2? How about V blowing up Parliment? What about Superman making the world reverse its f'ing axis!! Ok...I wouldn't include that...but it should make you think and remember that there are lots of movies to choose from. Cilian Murphy did a fine job as Scarecrow, but this scene hardly makes a case for the top 20 comic book movie scenes. Hell, the scene earlier where he freaks Falcone out with the gas was much better. Anyhow, just one comic book movie fanatic's humble opinion.
