Most Rewound Moments


#1

It’s said that the most rewound moment ever in a movie is the head explosion scene from Scanners.



What are some of your most rewound movie moments?



I’ll start by saying that I spent quite a bit of time with the head decapitation by dresser scene in High Tension.


#2

One of mine is probably when Jack Black kicks Will Ferrell’s (Ron Burgundy’s) dog of the bridge in Anchorman! I love that scene. ‘’ Thats how I roll’’ haha ;D

From Webster:

:: to wind again; especially : to reverse the winding of (as film) ::



…to watch over again. This actually an old term that dates back to the days of VHS, but still works for any movie format.


#13

Armour of God-Jackie’s fight with the Amazons. Those mid-air carthweels are insane!



Full Metal Jacket-The suicide. Damn, that looked real.



Salem’s Lot-When the head-vampire’s face is first shown. That was the most frightening makeup I had ever seen back in the day.



more later…


#14

The ending of The Fury is a very “rewound moment”.


#15

Irreversible* - the fire extinguisher to the face scene

Kill Bill: Volume 1 - The opening sequence

Once Upon a Time in Mexico - The opening credit sequence (if not for the music)



*Haha, how ironic.

Here are some of my favourite and most watched moments in movies, roughly in order of awesomeness.

I often pop in the DVD just to watch that one scene



1.Esteban Vihaio sequence in the asian cut of Kill Bill Vol.2

The pacing, the acting, the dialogue, the feel – it’s my favourite scene in my favourite movie of all time.



2. O-ren Ishii, Go Go Yubari and members of the Crazy 88 enter the House of Blue Leaves in Kill Bill Vol.1

All to the pumping sound of what from then on was just known as and referred to as „the Kill Bill theme“, even though that is not correct of course.



3. Beatrix Kiddo meets her daughter for the first time in Kill Bill Vol.2

That scene always got me. Greatness.



4. The final fighting sequence in Drunken Master II (Jui kuen II)



5. The Ohms help Nausicaa in the end of Nausicaa from the Valley of the Winds

A spoiler free description, if you’ve seen the movie you know what I mean.



6. The entire Vanilla Ice sequence in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II – The Secret of the Ooze

I’m dead serious.



7. The opening sequence of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II – The Secret of the Ooze

Right from the first picture to the end of the fight. The are not many things as pumping as the freeze frame of the flying Turtles with the Title in the picture together with that awesome music.



8. The three protagnonists dance in a cafè in Godard’s Bande a partè



9. Cop Nishi (Takeshi Kitano) shows a card trick to his wife in Hana-Bi



10. The BMX Race, the final scene in BMX Bandits



11. Jackie Chan finds himself in the world of Street Fighter 2 in City Hunter



12. „Gala Gala Happy Happy“, a musical performance also in City Hunter



That’s it I guess. Maybe later I can think of more.
