100 Greatest Movie Threats

Posted on

152043__scotty_lHarry Hanrahan — the man who brought you the 100 Greatest Movie Insults of All Time — has just released a new video on YouTube which will be pure candy for fans of cinematic badassery: The 100 Greatest Movie Threats of All Time. Some of the threats are said with a smile: Witness Schwarzenegger in Commando, telling an evil henchman, “You’re a funny guy, Sully. I like you. That’s why I’m going to kill you last.” Some of them are hilariously ornate, like J.T. Walsh in Good Morning Vietnam saying, “I’ll burn you so bad, you’ll wish you died as a child.” Unsurprisingly, R. Lee Ermey’s opening monologue in Full Metal Jacket earns a couple of slots, and you’ll enjoy repeat visits by Clint Eastwood, Samuel L. Jackson, and Joe Pesci. But there are also some surprises, including three clips from the 2000 gem The Way of the Gun. Watch the NSFW video after the jump. (I’ll watch the video after you jump…to hell!)

Which classic threats did Harry leave off his compilation?
