Podcast: Top 3 “Holy Crap” Moments in Movies
** SPOILER ALERT – Because of the nature of this Top 3, some of these picks do spoil some big moments in the mentioned films. So fair warning, but hopefully we don’t ruin anything for you. We did have a lot of fun with this list!
This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we reviewed the new Godzilla remake, starring Bryan Cranston, Aaron-Taylor Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen. Well, if you saw Godzilla and liked it, there’s a good chance there were a few times through out the film you said or thought the words, “holy s***” or something to that effect. It has some pretty great moments as far as we are concerned. So for this week’s Top 3, we decided to look into our Top 3 moments in film that made us react strongly and leave our jaw on the ground. And sometimes you get so excited that a strong reaction is required and very necessary.
That being said, what “holy crap” moments would make your list? Here are the one’s that made ours (Keep in mind we all have different criteria for our lists as well):
1) Opening beach scene in Saving Private Ryan
2) Nick Fury teases Avenger initiative in Iron Man
3) Goose killed in Top Gun
