Video: The 100 Greatest Movie Threats of All Time

The video editing genius behind The 100 Greatest Movie Insults of All Time and The 100 Cheesiest Movie Quotes of All Time has brought out a new masterpiece, which may even be better than his seminal, Nic Cage Losing His Shit – okay it’s not, but it’s still very, very good. If you haven’t heard of Harry Hanrahan before I suggest you check out his video channel on youtube.

His latest video, The 100 Greatest Movie Threats of All Time, is kind of like a fast paced version of one of those 100 greatest countdown shows Channel 4 is infatuated with – they’ve probably got enough to make the 100 greatest, 100 greatest countdown shows by now – only it’s actually good.

It has everything. From Arnie’s Running Man classic:
“I live to see you eat that contract. But I hope you leave enough room for my fist, because I’m going to ram it into your stomach and break your god’am spine!”

To Jack Nicholson’s shining speech, in, well, The Shining: “Darling, Light of my life, I’m not going to hurt you; you didn’t let me finish. I said, I’m not gonna hurt you, I’m just gonna bash your brains, I’m gonna bash ‘em right the fuck in.”
