I'm back from Florida

In honor of such, I'm making a list of the best movie victories. Except I can't think of none. So suggestions, my dears. I demand it.

Rocky's victory of the spirit, if not a literal victory.

Bill Pullman's delivery of "Today... is our Independence Day!" as the true moment the alien invasion was defeated.

Andy emerging from the sewage pipe, arms stretched out, scoring a victory for hope as he escapes Shawshank.

The Mighty Ducks winning their hockey game,

Indiana Jones getting past all the grail tests,

Ghostbusters vs. Stay Puft Marshmallow Man

(ps. for awhile there we were probably less than half an hour away from each other-spooooooky!)

Two examples from 1982, two from international classics:

The camera flying toward Paul Newman as he wins the trial in The Verdict.

Zelda Rubinstein in Poltergeist: "This house is CLEAN!"

Antonius Block duping death to win back his friends' lives, even if he loses for himself, in The Seventh Seal.

And even if the seven samurai themselves "lose" according to Kambei, the farmers still won valiantly! So count that as a victory for self-reliance.

Pyrrhic victories:

Robin Williams inspiring a bunch of floppy-haired students to stand on their desks and quote Walt Whitman even though he's just lost his job in 'Dead Poets Society'.

The mute native American indian busting out of the mental institute having put Jack Nicholson out of his misery in 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest'.

The phone ringing unanswered in an isolated booth in a small Scottish town in 'Local Hero'.

Lightning McQueen doing the right thing even though it costs him the race in 'Cars'.

'The Wild Bunch' - "Let's go!" "Why not?"
