Favorite scene.

I was reading somewhere about the 100 best lines in the movies, I think it was over there at Curmudgeonly and Skeptical... yep. But that's not what I wanted to talk about.

For some reason, that post got me thinking about my favorite scenes in the movies. After a while, I finally figured out my very favorite moment of a movie... for now anyways.

Now the Ghostbusters movies, one and two, were both great movies. And on the whole, I would say that the first was the better.

But remember in the second one when the Ghostbusters had to rally the city of New York behind them? They used some of the "good" slime they had and animated the Statue of Liberty. Well, right after they sprayed the goo all over, and started the music (Jackie Wilson's Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) there is a moment when you're waiting for it to work... and then, the torch on the Statue of Liberty ignites into a massive ball of flame!

Sure, it's not the greatest movie in the world, but that has to be my favorite scene.

Which kind of got me thinking... how could we get the torch to do that in real life? And wouldn't that look cool!

(Hey, I've got a thing for explosions... but in a good way. ie. no collateral damage.)
