Okay, that's the only part of the movie I've ever seen, but what was so great about that? A one-second kill followed by a full minute of Leatherface looking anxious?

Ditto - I can't tell you how many times I've seen DPS, and every single time i get all choked up too!!

I LOVE pretty much the whole of the movie The Breakfast Club, but particularly the scene where they are all sitting upstairs in the library talking about thier skills and why they are there that saturday. Unfortunately couldn't find a clip of that exact bit anywhere.

These scenes from Trainspotting, one of the greatest films ever made.



I remember seeing Trainspotting at the cinema and pissing myself laughing over that last one!!!

Trainspotting Though I don't remember laughing a whole lot.

I liked "The worst toilet in Scotland". When he crawls in

Mention should also be made of the Chef/tiger scene. "Never get out of the boat...bye bye tiger!"
T be more exact. only cause I'm like a seeeeerious fan...

"Never get out of the boat. Absolutely goddamn right. Unless you were goin' all the way. Kurtz got off the boat. He split from the whole fuckin' program"

man this flick is full of some of the best gems ever in film

like

"Why do all you guys sit on your helmets?"

"So we don't get our balls blown off." (and Chef's reaction LOL)

or

"DId you know that IF is the middle word in LIFE?"

"You can't travel in space, you can't go out into space, you know, without, like, you know, uh, with fractions...what are you going to land on - one/quarter, three/eighths?"

or

"Hey soldier, do you know whose in command here? "

"Ain't you? "

or

"Everyone gets everything he wants. I wanted a mission, and for my sins, they gave me one. Brought it up to me like room service. It was a real choice mission, and when it was over, I never wanted another" (huge Conrad reference)

or

"It's fuckin' pagan idolatry....I used to think if I died in an evil place, then my soul wouldn't be able to make it to heaven. But now? Fuck! I don't care where it goes, as long as it ain't here."

I just saw it for the first time ever last night, and it instantly became one of my very favourite movies. Un-fucking-real.

I wasn't asking about the Texas Chainsaw Massacre scene to be sarcastic ... I really want to know what I'm missing. Why is it so great?

I'm not the best at putting these types of things into words, but I'll give it a go.

Some of it is being down to breaking away from the norm. Rather than basking in a gratuitously bloody death scene it's a shockingly realistic blow that does it. But then we learn so much about Leatherface from his anxiety afterwards. He's genuinely frightened about these strangers coming into his house and is protecting his home primally and instinctively. It's not often that movie killers get decent, or indeed any, characterisation and the whole scene is pulled off perfectly.

It'd been a while since I've seen it too, weirdd how I remembered it very differently.

Thanks, monkeyskin. I was honestly curious. But like I said, I've never seen the movie.

This is a little long, 4:35....

Gives me the chills every time. Helps to have seen the whole movie to appreciate certain elements of the scene, but still....

I'm a huge fan too, I was just abbreviating Chef's psycho outburst! Other highlights:

"I just wanted to fuckin' cook man!"

"You can kiss my ass in the county square cuz I don't need this shit!"

I think this must be one of the most disturbing parts inthe film because you really just see this guy go to pieces. One minute he's talking about his dream of being a saucier, and then he's just sitting on the deck sobbing afterwards...hardcore.
