According to artist Scott Campbell, the greatest showdowns in movies are best represented with some cute cartoons – but the trick is, the great showdowns that he’s chosen are not always from the climax of the movie.
The picture above is taken from the movie The Princess Bride, but it is not from the climactic final battle with the bad guy trying to steal the hero’s girlfriend. No, it is from an intellectual battle that happens much, much earlier in the movie between the princess’ kidnapper and a pirate trying to steal her away.
On his website Great Showdowns, Campbell illustrates dozens of movies with cute drawings and pairs them with a rather obscure quote from the film, which turns it into a competition seeing just how many you can name.
How many do you know from the pictures below? How about on his site?
