Location, Location, Location!: Bars

Here we have three scenes from three different movies, all taking place in a bar, ranging from the downright unrealistic, to the tension so thick you can cut it with a knife, and each entertaining in their own way.


First up we have Desperado, which is my favorite on this list. The over the top violence, the hero can hit anything but bad guys can’t aim shtick, and the coolness factor is all here in full force.  While El Mariachi wants no part in the fight, he is forced to defend himself against a small army of unnamed thugs.

Road House

Next up – Road House, I really shouldn’t even say anything else here, because we’ve all seen this…so, I won’t!

Inglorious Basterds

Inglorious Basterds: A movie with Nazi’s and black humor, truly one of a kind, and with the epic dialogue master calling the shots, little can go wrong. What starts off as an already uncomfortable conversation, things escalate quickly and violently.

Next week: Bathrooms: dropping a deuce will never be the same.

    Yes! Thanks for letting this get the green light, Jim…fuck now I have more work to do!

    What about From Dusk Till Dawn? That was an epic bar fight

      I was going to incorporate this, but I thought that since vampires were included, the scene should be excluded…know what I mean?

    How did no one vote for Inglorious Basterds!

      I voted for Bastards… but it was a tough decision between that and Desperado. I think the Desperado scene gets a ton of love because this is the first we meet El Mariachi and in a seemingly innocent confrontation… the shit hits the fan.

      You just can’t beat a QT dialogue driven scene however. Funny enough, I think QT actually has the most spoken word in the Desperado scene.

        I was going to include From Dusk Till Dawn, but besides the vampires, it was yet another QT related scene…

        The scenes for the bathroom is going to be even tougher, as far as choosing the best one. I have 4 this time, while there are so many, I’m sticking with the dramatic/serious tones. Rest assured there will be no Dumb and Dumber scene.
