Great to see Dean Stockwell make the list, He also stole the movie Tucker with his portrayal of Howard Hughes.

I wouldn't say that Walken stole the entire movie of Pulp Fiction.

Martin Scorsese's scene in Taxi Driver? Really? I never thought that it added anything to the movie.

I'm not sure all of those qualify as "one" scene. William Hurt's performance in "A History of Violence" seemed to be longer than one scene.

And would this qualify?

I can't remember how much he was in that movie other than the next-to-last segment.

Does Bill Murray count in Zombieland? Was that technically one scene?

Best "no f*cking way" in recent memory is Jane Fonda as Nancy Reagan. Different type of scene stealing, but TOO funny for casting.

Good to know I'm not the only JK Simmons fan.
 
2013-09-28 08:07:16 PM
Glad to see Baldwin and Beatty there. The former a no-brainer, but because it was 3+ decades ago I was afraid the latter might not make the list.
 
2013-09-28 08:13:25 PM
Only other one I can think of that should have been there is Donnie Wahlberg in The Sixth Sense.
 
2013-09-28 08:14:49 PM
Not really a show stealer, but the Eli Wallach cameo as the liquor store owner in "Mystic River" was a welcome bit of comic relief in an otherwise dark movie.

My favorite one scene Walken.

I like how they not only have each image on a separate slide, but you need to click again just to read the caption.

Favorite scene in the movie outside of that other one

He had 2 scenes, so not list eligible.

You could add Brad Pitt and Gary Oldman for that movie.

This. It was an excellent scene in an excellent movie, but it didn't steal the whole film.

I have to nominate Tom Cruise in Tropic Thunder.

More than one scene, I think.

Walking down the street about 10-15 minutes in, putting his umbrella in the bin to trigger the hit on the ALHS. At the ALHS asking the girl to move away from the window before she gets shot by the "postman". Talking to Atwood about not having hit Condor. In the lift with Condor, running after him and pulling out the scope to read the numberplate on the fleeing car. In the hotel painting his miniatures when Condor calls him. In Atwood's house, and then the following scene you referenced.

/yes, it's one of my favourites

SilentStrider: Only other one I can think of that should have been there is Donnie Wahlberg in The Sixth Sense.


Best thing he's done so far.

I'm glad that these lists finally picked up on Scorsese in Taxi Driver, as I'd gotten tired or mentioned it.

The Rock's scene in Reno:911 Miami popped into my head

A pretty good list, really.
 
2013-09-28 10:08:33 PM
As a fan of military movies, I'd nominate Ted Danson in Saving Private Ryan and David Morse in the Hurt Locker.
 
2013-09-28 10:08:54 PM
List fails without Sean Connery in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.

My second favorite monologue in a movie

/Quint's "Indianapolis" scene in Jaws is obviously #1

Should we get the key grip to punch him in the face?

Skyrmion: I have to nominate Tom Cruise in Tropic Thunder.


I never got the love of this character. Over the top, ham-fisted portrayal.
But, I feel this way with most, if not all of Tom's work.
Stacee Jaxx indeed.


Meh.

Quint is # 1, but Pesci's ranting meltdown in JFK is brilliant.

Depp in 21 jump street. Made the whole thing legitimate, on top of being funny
 
2013-09-28 10:34:25 PM
Wolverine in XMen First Class.

List is missing Bob Saget's cameo in Half Baked.
 
2013-09-28 10:52:38 PM

JasonOfOrillia: List fails without Sean Connery in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.


I'll also nominate Dom DeLuise in Robin Hood: Men in Tights.

Have any regrets?

Garfield, maybe.

Teen 'the world isn't as sophisticated as me' movie, but I saw it at age 17. Glory Daze. Matthew mcconahy as the alcoholic car salesman.

Wasn't Sinatra in Cannonball Run II?

Yeaaaahhh, not giving that site that many clicks.
 
2013-09-28 11:11:16 PM
Ben Vereen in "All That Jazz" doesn't qualify because he's shown on a TV screen in the background a couple of times.  Damn shame.  He was amazing in that.

Dwight_Yeast: SilentStrider: Only other one I can think of that should have been there is Donnie Wahlberg in The Sixth Sense.

He also did great work in Band of Brothers. I just wish he would just put the whole NKOTB crap to rest.

Gene Hackman in Young Frankenstein.

r1niceboy: As a fan of military movies, I'd nominate Ted Danson in Saving Private Ryan and David Morse in the Hurt Locker.


If Ted Danson's scene in SPR "stole" or otherwise was the best thing about that movie to you, then you really really really watched that movie wrong.

Internet's latest punching bag Ben Afleck in Boiler Room.

Not really a hard movie to steal.  But he did it quite well.
 
2013-09-29 12:07:47 AM
Technically it is two scenes, but man, Bill Murray killed it in Space Jam.

Personally, I'd go w/ Steve Martin in the Muppet Movie as the sarcastic waiter.
