They're getting tougher now that most of the Will Ferrell and Jack Black scenes are gone. My votes:
#1 - Sixth Sense. Great scene. I'd tell you more, but it's a major spoiler. This scene is quite entertaining.
#2 - Blues Brothers. I don't really think of this as a great scene, but for some reason it's always better than its competitors. Maybe I'm underrating it.
#3 - Tombstone. Fine scene, fine mustaches.
#4 - Pulp Fiction. He died of dysentery? Wear that watch proudly.
#5 - The Dark Knight. I don't get it. Does Batman have a cold or something? Why is he so hoarse? And where's Robin?
Sixth Sense and Tombstone
But if you vote for all of them, it has the same impact as not voting at all.
Too much Pulp Fiction.
This heat is solid but unspectacular in my opinion. As long as Sixth Sense moves on, I'm fine with it.
If you vote for all of them other than Tombstone you can accomplish something though. Artificial vote inflation that hinders an over rated movie.
This is a pretty close vote right now.
Easily the most brutal round yet... choosing between Batman, Bruce and Wyatt?
But scene for scene?... Sixth Sense is bringing home the bacon.
I'll be good, but I wouldn't trust many of these other folks.
Dark Knight and Tombstone hands down. Shouldn't even be a contest.
I went Dark Knight and Sixth Sense.
Some of the other movies have better scenes I'll consider in other heats.
All solid scenes in my opinion.
Bumping for more voting.
My Sixth Sense tells me one of the movies I voted for needs more help.
Great heat regardless of outcome.
