2012’s Great Movie Moments: May

- Advertisement -


At the end of each month, the Sound On Sight staff will band together to write an article about their favourite scenes in films released. Here are our favourite scenes from the month of May.

Warning: Of course, spoilers are in full effect here!

The Avengers -Hulk vs. Thor

In perhaps the most unexpected gag found in Whedon’s The Avengers, is a brief moment in after teaming up to fight the villains, Hulk takes no issue in sucker punching Thor , proving that even the big green machine has a sense of humour. It is these comedic beats that helps The Avengers stand apart from most generic superhero movies of late.

The Avengers – Hulk smashes Loki

How often have we gone to the movies and had to sit through a scene in which a film’s villain delivers their useless monologue of why and how he or she feels that they will conquer the world and so on. Thankfully the Hulk also shares in our fatigue with this tired old cliche (or at least Joss Whedon), and cuts Loki midway though his “World Domination Speech” to toss him around like a pinata.

The Avengers – Extended Long Take

There is no shortage of super-powered action-set pieces in the last act of The Avengers. The final battle through and over midtown Manhattan lives up to its hype and raises the bar for Marvel movies to come with an extended long continuous shot showcasing our heroes doing what they do best: Kick Ass. Whedon’s unexpected knack for action choreography turns this into a spectacle in the grandest sense, a slickly packaged, effects-driven extravaganza that is alone, worth the price of admission.

Laurence Anyways – The Diner Scene

If there is any reason to see Laurence Anyways, it is simply for the superb performances from Melvil Poupaud and Suzanne Clement, who share such incredible onscreen chemistry, they alone justify sticking through the insane running time. In perhaps the pic’s best scene, Clement shines in a powerful, hysterical outburst when a small town waitress pokes her nose where it doesn’t belong. It is moments like these that inform us Dolan may be far from making a masterpiece, but is very much capable.
