The last one I feel kind of bad for. I worked on that set, with Four Stars Catering. It was a hoot to have had the chance to meet and work with Fred, and I swear we tried to help is Downeast accent, but he was a helluva nice guy. Miko's mother was on the set, a lot, and she was a crazy Stage Mother. Steven was constantly ducking her, as was the director for all he was worth, because she was concerned about a LOT of things. And in a way, you can't blame her, but damnation, she was abrasive.

The kid was sweet. He was always a joy to have around. Seeing the film is weird in knowing the folks involved, and seeing the thing from behind the scenes. It wasn't an easy film, there was a LOT of food to schlep and it was a fair sized crew. I felt for the kid, because he was not just young, but crazy young for what was asked of him, and he was trooper.

#4. Jaws - Young boy's grieving mother confronts Police Chief Brody

#3. Alien -- The Two Most Iconic Scenes (Upon Second Viewing)

The author found these scenes amusing? The Jaws scene gave me mixed emotions; sympathy towards the mother, with a defensive attitude in favor of Brody as I thought, "But it's not his fault!"

And Alien. THAT scene was funny?! That scene freaked me the hell out!

CSB:
I think I was 6 years old and sitting at home playing with my action figures or something. I had heard about the Alien movies and thought they were the coolest things ever, only seeing the adult xenomorphs in pictures and stuff. My dad yells for me to come into his office and watch the TV. I come in right as Kane starts freaking out and they throw him on the table. Needless to say, blood/gore fly out, an alien erupts, and I start screaming bloody murder. He said "Now that's an alien!" Of course my mom almost killed him, but she figured I had seen enough blood that day.

/Still one of my all time favorite movies (including Aliens)

Probably because it's been referenced and spoofed so many times now that it lacks any sort of impact.

Yeah, I'm totally missing it on all of them, especially this one. Steven Spielberg was awesome about taking regular people and filming a scene that worked. That was no exception.

I think you're right. I had never seen it until recently but because I knew what was going to happen I found the whole movie kind of silly.

No, don't you get it? It's funny because she's ugly. Tragedy becomes comedy when it happens to unattractive people. Oh, that ugly Ms Kitner. It's a shame that she didn't have more kids that c

Gage was a creepy little kid. He's one of the reasons I find children in horror movies so terrifying. He's unbelievably adorable and will cut your Achilles tendon.
 
2012-10-23 03:30:55 PM
I read through that list and realized that I've never seen a single one of those movies...oh sure, I've seen various scenes from all of them just through osmosis or whatever, but never sat and watched any of them from start to finish...

I agree. Plus, Brimley in The Thing was dead on. He wasn't freaking out; he KNEW what would happen if the Thing got off of Antarctica, and he was doing his best to stop it from happening. Those three weren't funny, they were dramatic.

Not sure if Tarantino was going for laughs with the needle in the chest scene in Pulp Fiction but it was so absurd I laughed my ass off. Was that wrong? Should I not have done that?

/List sucked.

The woman is unattractive. Therefore she is unsympathetic and her grief unrelatable, just as people typically laugh and provide no sympathy to ugly parents of deceased children in reality.

The only reason the author cites the Jaws scene is because the woman isn't attractive. Sure, she isn't hollywood attractive, but she's not as ugly as he makes her out to be..only aged. And even -then- I don't subscribe to the notion that its funny when it happens to unattractive people.

When they inevitably make a "Top 6 Worst Cracked Articles" this one will be on the list twice.

The scene in Troll 2 where the kid sees his friend becoming a tree.

/Oh my Go-o-o-od!
 
2012-10-23 03:43:34 PM
Um, almost every single one of those still holds up as disturbing/creepy. And Wilford Brimley doesn't even look like Wilford Brimley in The Thing.

The list should have included any of M. Night Shamalan's scenes in Signs, and any scenes with Rob Zombie's wife in any of his movies.

Bendal: /think Brimley got Thinged after he was locked in the supply hut


Yeah, they pretty much left him out there and rang the dinner bell for the Thing to assimilate him.

I don't see why laughing would be inappropriate for that scene. Especially with Rosanna Arquette's comment at the end.

I remember seeing The Exorcist in theaters around 2000 when they re-released it as "the version you've never seen". People were laughing through the whole movie. It still freaks me out though.

It was written by a Cracker user with the name Rifftrax. Mike Nelson and company have their own forum on their own website to post articles. And they would never make those observations about Mrs Kitner and try to pass it off as humor.
 
2012-10-23 04:00:28 PM
As for the Jaws scene, I always thought it was strange that Mrs. Kintner was so old to have such a young son. Lee Fierro was only 45 though when Jaws was filmed - she definitely looked way older.

A Cracked author with the name Rifftrax with no relation to Rifftrax? Are you being serious? It's the Rifftrax guys; you can be sure of that. They have regular articles on Cracked now. Sorry to burst Fark's "We hate everything Cracked," bubble.

Drag Me to Hell is full of those moments for me, the biggest one is when the goat starts talking, I just burst out laughing. I also remember seeing Summer of Sam when it came out and the whole theater cracked up when the dog started talking, not the reaction they were going for I'm sure.

That is very disappointing. I just hope it's somebody who manages the website and not Mike or the other guys. I remember after their riff of The Dark Knight a blog post from Bill Corbett expressing some regret that they took potshots at Maggie Gyllenhaal's looks, admitting that they are "never at our best" when they do that. And having read Mike Nelson's and Kevin Murphy's writings, TFA doesn't read like either of them.
 
2012-10-23 04:30:42 PM
This list sucked so horribly I don't even know where to begin. So I won't.

I will say the upside-down head with spider legs in The Thing was hilarious to me.
