Scene Of The Week - December 22, 2019 + POLL

A weekly feature in which we're trying to find the most compelling, best acted, written, directed and just generally great, memorable scenes that we've seen in past seven days on TV.

GOOD TROUBLE, "Nochebuena", December 16, 2019, Actors: Maia Mitchell, Cierra Ramirez and more
The Scene: The drinking game
Jamie:
There were so many hilarious moments in both episodes but for some reason the drinking game is the one that's sticking with me. I just found it hilarious, the way all of the kids responded to their parents' fake politeness and their overuse of the word "lovely".

HIS DARK MATERIALS, "The Fight to the Death", December 15, 2019, Actors: Dafne Keen and more, The Scene: Lyra gets the name "Silvertongue"
Milo:
Whist yes, Iorek's bear fight to claim the throne was awesome this episode, Lyra getting the name Silvertongue was one of the highlights of the week, after she used deception to aid Iorek and trick a Svalbard bear, stated earlier in the season of being untrickable. Dafne Keen was as great as ever, and that scene - a pivotal part in the The Northern Lights for Lyra's character development was given the justice it deserves.

RUNAWAYS, "The Broken Circle", December 13, 2019, Actors: Ariela Barer and more
The Scene: Gert's death
Jamie:
I mean, this was an incredibly sad moment but it was just beautifully shot and the music was absolutely perfect. It almost made me wish they hadn't undone it. Almost. Also picked by Marko

SOUNDTRACK, "Track 1: Nellie and Sam", December 18, 2019, Actors: Callie Hernandez, Paul James
The Scene: The reveal about Nellie
Marko:
It is revealed that Nellie is Sam's dead wife.

THE MANDALORIAN, "Chapter 7: The Reckoning", December 18, 2019, Actors: Pedro Pascal, Carl Weathers, Gina Carano and more, The Scenes: The Child heals Greef Karga with the Force & The Child uses the Force on Cara
Justyna:
Another great episode! In fact this one might be my favorite so far. There's quite a few scenes that I could mention from the hour but I decided to highlight the part where the Child uses the Force to heal the wounds of Greef Karga. We've seen the Child's previous attempt to heal The Mandalorian but Mando stopped him before the little one had a chance to do anything. This was the first we've seen the Force healing use by the Child and in fact, it's the first time we see such a display of power in any of the Star Wars live-action stories. Certainly a moment worth remembering. Also, it's the second time the Child uses the Force during this episode, both times with the opposite intentions and effects. So far the Child has only appeared as an innocent, cute and helpful 50-year old baby. These two moments make this character a far more complicated mystery. The reactions of everyone present when Greef is healed can already tell quite a lot about them. His initial assumption ("he's trying to eat me") was unexpectedly funny but ultimately this is the moment that truly changes his mind and makes Karga choose not to attack the Mandalorian. I'm very excited to see what's going to happen next - with both "Baby Yoda" and the rest of our characters.
Laura B: The Child Force Choke-Holds Cara Dune. Wow, what a penultimate episode AND there were lots of intriguing things that seem to go hand in hand with things in The Rise of Skywalker, so that was a fun treat, but I chose this particular scene, because it was so surprisingly chilling, being a blatant callback to Darth Vader, but also because it calls into question where The Child's alignment with The Force really lies or if the point of this is merely meant to contest the former notions of alignment itself? Can't wait for the season finale!

THE WITCHER, "The End's Beginning", December 20, 2019, Actors: Henry Cavill, Emma Appleton and more, The Scene: The fight in Blaviken
Justyna:
I've seen only the first four episodes of the show so far, but I'm really enjoying it. There's several memorable moments that I could highlight in the article but I decided to go with the one that I think is the first defining struggle for our main character - the fight in Blaviken. The same massacre that haunts him in the next episodes, the same one that leaves him with the title of Butcher of Blaviken. There are no good options for Geralt in this scene, all he wants is to avoid bloodshed and yet he's the one who ends up killing Renfri and her men. He's asked to choose between the lesser of two evils and he makes a decision he thinks is best in the moment, trying to save innocent lives. It's clear he doesn't want Renfri's death, but he can't allow her to destroy Blaviken in an attempt to take revenge against Stregobor. That is not who he is. In the process he kills the princess that he truly wanted to save. And Stregobor remains free... It's a tragic story with an ending that leaves you thinking. "You made a choice. And you'll never know if it was the right one." The fight itself is so well done. Especially the part between Geralt and Renfri. Their duel is fast, brutal and truly impressive. Wonderful work by Henry Cavill, Emma Appleton and the stunt team. I can't wait to watch the rest of the series. Kudos!

WATCHMEN, "See How They Fly", December 15, 2019, Actors: Regina King and more
The Scene: The frozen baby squids attack (picked by DarkUFO)

About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.
