The new 3:10 to yuma last scene....YES I cried  and hated the movie after LOL

Tombstone is a "better" Earp movie BUT Wyatt Earp is closer to the what really happened.
But then I am a bit partial and have the benifit of family stories to help.

O yea.

The last thirty or so minutes in Saving Private Ryan, trying to hold the bridge.  Best and worst, really.
Desperado..."I am looking for a man called Bucho.  That is all.  But you had to do it the hard way."
The shootout in front of the bank in front of Public Enemies -- really good sound editing.  Very gripping.  A little too real, actually.

The "house-cleaning" scene in Last Man Standing/i], where Bruce Willis goes through a house of one mob to rescue a hottie belonging to the other gang.  I loved the way he drew both guns, and just started shooting, dropping empties, and reloading.  Way cool.  Unrealistic, to be sure, but still way cool.

He was actually trying to be realistic.  It is the first movie that actually had shooting scenes I could respect.  I was kind of amazed that at least 1 of the goons didn't manage to get a bullet into him tho'


The other one I appreciated was Blackhawk down.  Spray and Pray VS aimed shooting.  Other aspects were good too, close proximity to a gun firing........   The failure of an ambush where dad failed to properly instruct his kid, and died for it.   Several other situations.

In The Patriot, the part at the beginning where Mel Gibson's character goes Rambo on the redcoats and rescues his eldest.

Also that one where a married couple is undercover with each other because they are assasins.  I think it was "the smith's" or Mr and Mrs Smith?

RARICK - Yes, Mr. and Mrs. Smith...

PKL - I love the Patriot and was so perturbed at all the "too violent" comments. Makes me cringe that folks like that would just allow someone to take their child(ren) away from them without a fight...

Didn't Pulp Fiction have some good fight scenes?

The Gay S&M?  the only gunfights were an accidental discharge, and a lazy assassin getting separated from his gun when he was in the crapper.

If it's okay to intrude again, and if it's okay to stray a tad away from guns, then I would like to say that I absolutely love "House of Flying Daggers."

I love that movie. I also like a Korean one called The Warrior.

But back to guns.

I like these scenes from Kino's Journey*:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uEQoUFCUoN0&feature=related
(Cuts down tree with a machine gun and shoots assailant at some point during this 30 minute movie, post apocalyptic genre, eng-sub)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fp2pJrzFff8
(Gunfight from TV series)


*(also called Kino no Tabi, the most positive TEOTWAWKI scenario I've ever seen on film or tv.)

The gunfight in Heat when they rob the bank and run into the police out in the streets. The whole scene was actually shown to my class in the USMC School of Infantry as an example of the correct way to fire, move, and provide supporting fire for your buddies.
