Great Showdowns: A Nod To Pop Culture

Scott C. has been making watercolor paintings of some of cinema’s greatest showdowns for a while now - and you should check it out!

1. The Sound of Music - Maria vs. The Von Trapp Children (at least, for the first half-hour or so)

“Do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti. Oh, let’s see if i can make it easier.”

2. Planet of the Apes - George Taylor vs. Those Damn Dirty Apes

“Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!”

3. The Shining - Wendy vs. Jack

“Stop swingin’ the bat. Put the bat down, Wendy. Wendy? Give me the bat…”

4. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off - Ferris Bueller, Cameron Frye and Sloane Peterson vs. Life

“I am not going to sit on my ass as the events that affect me unfold to determine the course of my life. I’m going to take a stand. I’m going to defend it. Right or wrong, I’m going to defend it.”

5. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade - Indiana and Henry Jones vs. Walter Donovan and - of course - the Nazis

6. Troll 2 - Arnold vs. the Trolls

“They’re eating her… and then they’re going to eat me… OH MY GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!”

7. Dazed and Confused - Boys vs. Girls - and Boys and Girls vs. Life

“That’s what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age.”

8. Clueless - Cher vs. Amber

“So like, right now for example. The Haitians need to come to America. But some people are all, “What about the strain on our resources?” Well it’s like when I had this garden party for my father’s birthday, right? I put R.S.V.P. ‘cause it was a sit-down dinner. But some people came that like did not R.S.V.P. I was like totally buggin’. I had to haul ass to the kitchen, redistribute the food, and squish in extra place settings. But by the end of the day it was, like, the more the merrier. And so if the government could just get to the kitchen, rearrange some things, we could certainly party with the Haitians. And in conclusion may I please remind you it does not say R.S.V.P. on the Statue of Liberty. Thank you very much.”

9. Space Jam - Michael Jordan, Bill Murray and the Looney Tunes vs. Swackhammer

“Then it goes to the big man. You go up the hole and dominate!”

10. Kill Bill Vol. 2 - Beatrix Kiddo (a.k.a. “The Bride”) vs. Elle Driver

“I killed that miserable old fool.”

11. Lost in Translation - Bob Harris vs. Tokyo, Japan

“For relaxing times, make it Suntory time.”

12. Role Models - Danny, Wheeler, Auggie and Ronnie vs. King Argotron

“Hear he, hear, he. This is a battle to the last man standing, and the victor shall rule the realm. There’ll be no magical rejuvenation powder today. Instead, if you are killed, you are done!”

13. Bridesmaids - Annie vs. Helen and “Stove”

“I’m good. I feel, i’m so much more relaxed. Thank you, Helen. I just feel like i’m excited and i feel relaxed and i’m ready to party with the best of them. And i’m going to go down to the river!”

14. The Cabin in the Woods - Dana, Curt, Jules, Mart and Holden vs. Sitterson and Hadley
