  • Dramatic entrances

    I just finished re-watching "Aliens" and the dramatic entrance of Ripley in the power-loader got me to wondering: what are some of the best/most dramatic entrances in movies? I guess the archetype is Orson Welles as Harry Lime in "The Third Man".

    I don't know...

    I thought the quaking water in Jurassic Park was quite an entrance for the T-Rex.

      I got to watch Terminator II twice this weekend (grandson visiting) and there are some grand entrances there not the least of which is Arnie arriving in that ball of fire or whatever it was. Also the bad guy morphing out of the floor was quite impressive.

      Take care, Margaret

      ps: can anyone explain "Catch Me if you Can"?

        This one was shared at another forum I frequent. Not sure if the guy is serious or not when he shared it, but I found way too much humor in this one, so I thought I would share it here too.

        "Remembering" vs. "Rewatching"
        by Doug Nelson
        I recently got into a conversation and mentioned that a movie they mentioned remembered better than it rewatched. The person I was speaking with had no idea what I was talking about, but I'd assumed everyone thought about movies in that way. Some movies simply seem better in the memory, even very recent...

        An excellent thriller! I did not see it when it came out in the theatre (wish I had) but would highly recommend it to anyone who likes intelligent suspense movies...has a bit of a Hitchcock feel to it.
