Great Moments in Movie History Using Stick Figures: Friday the 13th (1980)

It’s time yet again for my oldest recurring feature- Great Moments in Movie History Using Stick Figures. This time, we’ll take a look at the Friday the 13th franchise. When there are 12 films in a series, including one where the franchise’s supernatural lake monster slasher ends up in outer space, there are bound to be a lot of memorable moments. Rather than messing around with the eleven sequels, I’ve opted to stick to the basics by illustrating the most memorable part of the original film. Enjoy! Continue reading

Great Moments in Movie History (Using Stick Figures): About Schmidt (2002)

It’s time to fire the “Great Moments” series back up after a hiatus for a few weeks. There are a lot of newer readers here, so it’s probably worth giving an explanation. When I started this site, the one thing that I knew I wanted to do was institute a series of great moments in movie history, memorialized using stick figures. It’s where the TDYLF tagline comes from– come for the stick figures, stay for the Bergman. It’s been sporadic but I’ve been making them more frequently the last few months. You can find the full list of other Great Moments in Movie History (using stick figures) here, along with every time I’ve used the phrase ‘Great Moments in Movie History’). 2000-2010 was mostly void of truly memorable movie scenes, but there are at least a few that stand out. And today, I’ve visited one of those scenes by converting it to stick figure form. Today’s great moment is courtesy of Jack Nicholson in About Schmidt (2002). Continue reading

Great Moments in Movie History (Using Stick Figures): Total Recall (1990)

It’s Friday again, which means it’s time for another Great Moment in Movie History (Using Stick Figures). There’s been a lot of buzz in the last week about the upcoming remake of Total Recall starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, and Bryan Cranston, amongst others. It might be a decent movie, but it’s hard not to enjoy the original from 1990. There are a lot of memorable scenes from the original. But one of those scenes was three times as memorable as the others. Here it is, in stick figure form. Continue reading

Great Moments in Movie History: Taxi Driver (1976)

A long time ago (2 years) in a galaxy far, far away (about four miles from where I’m sitting right now), I started this site with no real purpose. But one thing that I knew I wanted to do was institute a series of great moments in movie history, memorialized using stick figures. It’s where the tagline comes from– come for the stick figures, stay for the Bergman. I busted out several early on, especially in the first year of operation. Then it slowed down almost to a crawl. I realized the other day that it’s damn near at a total stop. I haven’t done one since October (you can find the full list here, along with every time I’ve used the phrase ‘Great Moments in Movie History’). I need to get back to my roots. This is all a really long way of saying, “Hey, I turned Travis Bickle and Taxi Driver into a stick figure!” Enjoy: Continue reading
