  1. OK, so for you old cats and old meaning 40 and older in no particular order, greatest scenes in TV show history:
    Fade to black Sopranos, MASH final helicopter scene, Miami Vice Phil Collins in the Air Tonight, JR Ewing being shot, Archie Bunker when he finally cries because Edith is dead, final Newhart scene, GOT Eddard Stark death, Hill Street Blues shooting, Cheers final closing, this scene! Sure I may have left a couple out, but to show you how great this scene is, it's certainly up there with that greatest of all time!

  2. As impressive as this is, this isn't one continuous take. There's a matching cut at 2.54. I think they've used a digital pan like in Serenity, I'm not sure why though. I suppose requiring a chopper to do an in frame fly over like that would be extremely difficult and potentially dangerous. The magic of cinema.

  3. Mccauneheys (I know that's wrong) acting is off the charts in this scene. All body language. Love when he is stalling the standoff for as long as he can, after he tosses ginger out the door and Tiger gets shot he lets out this sort of frustrated growl, so good. Everything reads so much better between him and Harrelson, "90 SECONDS MOTHERFUCKER!"

  4. Saw this for the first time last night. It might be different for everyone, but I think my favorite part is the swivel (1:242:20) back and forth as Ginger is completing the robbery and Rust is trying to keep everyone's nerves at bay (including his own).

  5. I don't think this is truly one take. I'm pretty sure there's a few cuts hidden in there. One of them being the part where the camera pans up to the helicopter. Regardless, this is still impressive. The takes are still pretty long, and they didn't seem to rely on the cheap whip pan technique to hide cuts.
