I live for these moments.
  1. Gladiator
    My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions and loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next.
  2. Terminator 2
    When Sarah Connor does those pull-ups. Possibly the most badass women in all of movie history.
  3. Sister Act
    When the skinny nun belts it out in Ave Maria.
  4. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
    When Hermione clocks Malfoy. So deliciously satisfying.
  5. Lord of the Rings: Return of the King
    Eowyn: chopping heads and stabbing faces. "I am no man!"
  6. 300
    When the Queen stabs the traitor and repeats his lines back to him. I literally stood up in the theater and cheered. Honorable mention: when King Leonidas kicks the messenger from Xerxes into the big well. So BA.
  7. Matrix
    Pretty much anything Trinity ever does. Also, Morpheus. (I need to rewatch this, apparently, so I can pick one actual BA moment.)
  8. To Kill A Mockingbird
    When Atticus shoots the rabid dog. BA AF
  9. Goodwill Hunting
    When Will intellectually demolishes the snotty prick in his hot AF southie accent. "How bout them apples?"
  10. Taken
    When Liam Neeson shoots the wife of the crooked-French government official! I'm not saying I support such acts but damn that was BA.
