Rubbish Bits of Otherwise Good Films

It would be a far better film if they excised the whole Bruce Willis subplot. It slows the film down to a crawl, isn't very interesting and is just too contrived to be anything other than a let down in what is a good film aside from that section.

Agree that much of it needs punted but they need his character for some vital parts of the film (mainly him killing Vincent and him saving Marcellus).

Yeah the pop tart incident is a great what the f**k moment when you first see it, and I enjoy Marcellus getting his revenge on the rapists. Leave Bruce Willis in but get a better actress for the missus.

From Dusk till Dawn, he's not terrible.

 

She's not Asian, pretty sure she's French and white.  Point still stands.

 

On topic, Brad Pitt cameo in 12 years a slave.

Also, the bit at the end of Return of the King when Merry and Pippin jump all over Frodo, when he's lying in bed.  For the record, Frodo Baggins is an absolute c**t and the real hero of middle earth is Samwise Gamgee.

Fabienne (previously alluded to as the Asian) in Pulp Fiction is atrocious. Bruce Willis is basically shagging a woman with the mind of a ten year old.

Turns out she's Portuguese!  Thanks for the correction......I'd have continued to think she was Asian otherwise!

The Christopher Walken "watch" scene is terrific. You can't cut Bruce Willis or you'd lose that (and the phrase "I'mma get medieval on they ass").

Also inclined to get rid of Esmerelda Villa Lobos but I do like “I’m an American honey, our names don’t mean shit”.

That bit in Predator where Arnie takes about a minute to explain some very basic stuff that you would really assume that a Special Forces Unit would have a handle on already, especially as they are about to enter a firefight where time will be of the essence.

Also the bit where he blows up a helicopter for no reason.

Film could have been over in ten mins. Or made more exciting by the predator shooting it down.

I know its required as it comes from source material but I always hated the ghost army appearing in Return of the King. Pish.

Again, it is sort of required by source material but... the reveal that "It" is actually a massive spider. A big let down, that.

Lord of the rings is my favourite book and film series, nothing comes close imo.

While watching Return of the King in the cinema checking the time of the film and coming to the realisation that there is no time to do the battle for the shire at the end.

I can live with that because the way Peter Jackson did the film the battle for the shire would be another while film BUT to replace it with the complete shite ending they filmed aways ruins it a bit for me

The "My friends, you bow to no one" scene always completely ruins me.

The bit in Downfall where Adolf dies.
It would have been far more heartwarming if he bounced back and repelled the Russians. 
Aw spoilers ffs.

In fairness to Danny, the title is a spoiler on its own. They should have called the film "Downfall?"... keep the audience guessing.
