So I thought we’d turn today’s topic to the subject of food. Will it be a tricky one? Maybe… but let’s try to come up with our favorite scenes or moments from movies involving eating, or food.
Plenty of comedies deal in food… obviously, there’s the food fight in Animal House. Spicoli ordering a pizza in class. The lunch scene in the Breakfast Club. But horror goes there too. How about the dinner scene in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, or the octopus scene in Old Boy? There’s plenty of dramatic scenes that happen at the dinner table… American Beauty has a family dinner scene from hell, for example. Jack Nicholson tells Helen Hunt “You make me want to be a better man” over dinner.
“Look Mr Frodo. Lembas!”
There’s tons of ammunition out there for you today, and I promise the judges will be lenient. So let’s hear it! What are YOUR favorite movie scenes involving food?!
