You Know Who Posted April 11, 2014 Report Share Posted April 11, 2014 Exclusively those involving two combatants receiving no direct assistance from third characters (for example, Spidey's first confrontation with Doc Ock in Spider-Man 2 is out, since Aunt May assists Spidey at one point). These are my top ten, though not too strictly ordered: 1. King Kong vs. T. rex (1933 version) 2. Nicholas Angel vs. Simon Skinner (Hot Fuzz) 3. Sam vs. Shelob (The Return of the King) 4. The Beast vs. Gaston (Beauty and the Beast) 5. Luke Skywalker vs. Darth Vader (The Empire Strikes Back) 6. James Bond vs. Alec Trevelyan (GoldenEye) 7. James Bond vs. Oddjob (Goldfinger) 8. Batman and Bane's first confrontation (The Dark Knight Rises) 9. Hamlet vs. Laertes (in the 1996 film; in this case, I just mean from when Laertes first draws blood, not the sporting fencing beforehand) 10. Harry Potter vs. Voldemort (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2; not crazy about most of the wand fights in the Harry Potter films and this one, while probably the best, still isn't perfect) Honorable Mention: Loki vs. The Hulk (The Avengers; most of my favorites are more-or-less evenly-balanced fights a few minutes long; this one the main exception) I tried to limit mine to one or two per franchise, hence why there aren't more from Star Wars or Bond films. I'm sure there are a dozen so that I'm forgetting, but which will be brought up by other people. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
