Most out of place/bizarre scene in a film

    Bare with me on this one. Pub conversation the other night and one of the lads reckons the scene in Cabin Fever where the young one on the bench does some kung fu stuff is the most bizarrre out of place scene in a film. (he thought the writer/director was just having a laugh.

    Do any films have such scenes? If so, what do you think was the purpose of the scene?

    Maybe this one isnt along the same lines but here goes anyway. The film Heat. After Gringo killls the security guards, de niro and his cronies arrange to meet him in a diner so they can whack him. Watch the scene again in the diner. Tom Sizemore gets up out of his seat, stands up and sits back down again. Makes no sense! Its not the editing as it was deliberate - it was meant to happen. Any thoughts?

    From my memory, that was because the guy they were going to whack had to sit on the inside?

    Can't remember the first one, but the bit in Heat, I get the feeling it was to stop Gringo from going anywhere. DeNiro sits beside Gringo and Sizemore goes back to his seat. Of maybe it's just a section that was edited out :D

    Scene in La Haine when before we meet Vinz it shows him doing a little Jewish jig:D

    I guess it is supposed to be a dream but it is still weird.


    Also every second scene in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Naked Lunch and Santa Sangre:eek:

    Bizzare Scene in a film is it??????

    'Naked Lunch' from beginning to end.

    Pulp Fiction "The Gimp" Scene, knocked me for six when Butch and Marsellus walking into the Hillbilly store, but it worked very well within the movie.

    Snake ;)

    The scene in Showgirls where a bunch of chimps somehow get loose back stage and try on the showgirls make up.

    Wait... that was possibly a dream... no.. no... it wasn't.

    Hugo Weaving as a woman in 'Priscilla, Queen of the Desert' and most of the film 'Dreams' by Akira Kurosawa.

    The closing dance scene of 'Zatoichi', featuring the entire cast - completely random.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 88,978 ✭✭✭✭mike65


    The ending of Blade Runner mk 1, as Deckard and Rachael drive away into the opening sequence of The Shining :eek:

    Mike.

    that weird scene in the Shining when it looks like some guy is going down on another guy dressed as a rabbit. Totally out of the blue and well creepy.

    Random but Absolutly Brilliant. Couldn't have a better way to end that Flick.

    Everything is Illuminated,
    Genius movie,
    a must see,
    but seriously weird as Elijah Woods character explores the land of his ancestors, excellent supporting cast, its like Borat, but funnier and, yet, more serious, all at the same time.

    Zatoichi dancing finale +1. But like most things by Takeshi Kitano, it is utterly brilliant at the same time.

    The fight scene in Anchorman also springs to mind - "I killed a man with a trident!". Out of the blue and bizarre, but probably the funniest part of the film too (well, perhaps that dog off the bridge moment tops it).

    I'm sure there's more - the perverted hotel scene in Garden State would also rank as bizarre and tonally odd - but those are the only ones popping to mind at the moment.

    The end of The 40 Year Old Virgin came out of nowhere.


  • Registered Users Posts: 43,774 ✭✭✭✭Basq


    How about the musical dance piece in 'Clerks 2' to The Jackson's 'A,B,C'?

    Completely outta left field, especially considering it's a Kevin Smith movie.

    Alien abduction scene in The Life Of Brian. Great film, but that bit was pointless and not even funny.


  • Registered Users Posts: 597 ✭✭✭bambam


    I've a good one for ye, Patrick Stewart in masterminds http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0119630/ - awful film BTW.

    anyhow... he's the villian, and he's escaping through the sewers in a mini golf cart type of thing, when all of a sudden he stops, whips off his jacket, to reveal a well know premiership team jersey, and starts shouting ' Uuuniiiiteeeedd, Unnniiiiteeedd!! Then gets back on the golf cart to continue his escape...

    Absolutely biazarre scene. Check out this for some more details:

    It was the guy that said 'lucky bastard' that made it funny for me, thought that was hilarious.

    I think a Python film without any pointless bizarre scenes would be considered strange.

    I have never seen the whole film represented by the fifth clip in this video, but for a bizarre, seemingly out of place line, this is utterly brilliant. Even in the context of the 10 seconds that precede it in this clip, it is "WTF?".

    My memory is fuzzy on this one, but in Battle Royale,
    doesn't Takeshi Kitano's character die, but then get up to answer his phone and drink some milk??
    That was bizarre!

    "Just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in."

    Nuff said.



  • Closed Accounts Posts: 248 ✭✭film_gonzo


    Most of the buddy cop scenes from 'The Brave One' are completely out of sync mood wise with the rest of the movie.

    They're funny and probably the most entertaining thing about that movie but look like the may have been from another, never made movie.

    :D Thanks for posting that johnny. Really gave me a smile first thing on a Subday morning.



    And that is an absolute classic scene in the big Lebowski. It is just brilliant.

    The end of Perfume
    The frog scene in Magnolia


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,693 ✭✭✭Jack Sheehan


    Definately the uncalled for cillian-murphy-penis shot from 28 days later.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,863 ✭✭✭Hangdogroad


    The original Last House On The Left has a subplot featuring an incompetent pair of cops whose patrol car breaks down in the middle of nowhere. Their attempts to hitch a ride, to the accompaniment of "comical" country & Western music is like something out a Smokey And The Bandit type redneck comedy, and completely at odds with the rest of the film, which is a very disturbing depiction of the rape and murder of two teenage girls by a gang of psychopaths.

    All the Penis scenes towards the end of ‘Enter the Void’ was very weird.



  • Registered Users Posts: 11,170 ✭✭✭✭B.A._Baracus


    We Were Soldiers.

    A very good movie but there's one point where the photographer solider has a full on scene of his own where he is dashing in front of the camera taking "pictures" as images are transparently overlaid. It's a strange scene as there's nothing else like it in the movie. No montages, no dream like things etc. Just did odd scene.
