"Give me a second, would you, Frank? I've never been on trial for my thoughts before."

Ahahaha! That's the witticism of Aaron Sorkin dialogue that I love so much! You have my attention.

I really need to rewatch the animated film. This video made me appreciate it so much more.

Wow! Holy smokes! I love this trailer! And I love Anthony Mackie (he's such a chill guy)! And I love mind-bending thrillers! Definitely going on my watchlist.

Horrifying and disturbing, the musicless scene of the Angel of Death taking away the breaths of the firstborns. Still holds up beautifully. One of my top three favorite animated movies of all time.

If you have your earphones plugged in (or have your volume turned up), you could hear the cries of an entire nation waking up to the death of their child still lingering in the background as Moses approaches Ramesses. The sound design of this film is amazing, among other aspects of the film.

I love this clip for many reasons:
  1. Brad Dourif is known to have played a number of characters who are psychopathic killers, be it Charles Lee Ray from Child's Play or Luther Lee Boggs from The X-Files. Audiences watching this would immediately assume that Brad's the killer here.
  2. Many earlier horror movies tend to portray characters with disorders (a stutterer in this case) to be psychopathic killers, which is a lazy and dated cliche.
  3. If this was any ordinary slasher movie, the woman in the clip here would actually be considered a pretty smart victim who knocked out the window when the door is locked. Typical victims in slasher films tend to head inside the house or building when they find out the door is locked. She also carried a pepper spray when she became wary of Brad's character being a potential killer.
  4. The urban legend here is pretty famous, and I love how only those who only know about the legend knows the truth of what's portrayed here.
  5. The way the dialogue is scripted here, plus the way the revelation is framed, plus the way Brad performed his final line, it all culminates in a very well-executed scene that's shocking (to people unaware of the legend) and riveting. Very well done scene.
I know this movie was criticized for copying the self-aware meta craze started by Scream (one of my favorite horror movies of all time), but dang, it's clips like this that makes me wanna watch the film.

Edit:
I'm watching an episode of Millennium that played around with urban legends like this movie, including the one shown in the video here. I like how they kinda subverted that legend by having the guy at the gas station being successful in warning the victim about the crime (because he isn't a stutterer like Dourif's character). However, this was before Urban Legend's initial release date in September of '98 though; the episode in question was released February '98. Just a nice little fun detail to notice here. I think I like the subversion in the movie a little more.

Urban Legend is a guilty pleasure of mine. Have a thing for the lead girl.

Anyone checked him out? He's fairly new, but it's a fun concept, the way he does it.

I fell down a YouTube spiral of watching old Goo Goo Dolls music videos...
