    One of the best on-screen Batman sequences of all time.

    1. Howard the Duck was both seconded and thirded by Merlin1958 and Needfulthings.

    2. The Untouchables was seconded by Sentinel. Granted he made two seconds at the same time, but the first one should be counted at least.
    I can second The Untouchables. I stated both the second and third for Howard the Duck was out of turn.

    Interesting tidbit of info in 1948 when ROPE was made the shot could only last as long as the amount of film in the camera...Thus requiring 2 projectors to project the film without brakes (Early 3D movies used both projectors at the same time thus they required an intermission in order to change film in both projectors.) in order for the projectionist to know when to make the reel change CUE MARKS were placed on the film (upper right hand corner) With films now being projected from a single platter these marks have now been removed and give ROPE an even more one scene feel.

    I know that cue marks or cigarette burns disappeared from films some time ago but I saw Ouija: Origin of Evil earlier this year and the director placed cue marks in the film just to make it seem older. Not sure how many noticed it but I thought it was pretty cool. That doesn't have much to do with what you said Bruce.

    I really wish Hitchcock was still around and making movies. Just imagine what he could do with today's technology!


    A question for participants, I want to nominate the opening scene from Scream, I just re-watched it, would you consider it a scene or a sequence?

    De Palma is so obsessed with mimicking Hitchcock it's like having him still around.

    It doesn't matter. The 'Battle of Hoth' from The Empire Strikes Back and the 'Warehouse fight scene' from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, are both sequences, yet it has not stopped either one of them being successfully nominated and included in the list.

    As there is no set rule stipulated about the use of sequences (only a previous discussion in the 'About a potential next tournament' thread), I think you should be fine to nominate whatever you like.
