Introducing: Great 10-Second Moments in Cinematic History

We’re happy to premiere an all-new feature here on Jumped the Snark, “Great 10-Second Moments in Cinematic History,” where we post some of the greatest scenes, quotes, exchanges and glances from movies past, all ten seconds or less (and when we refer to cinematic history, keep in mind we’re talking about our cinematic history, which might differ slightly from a certain Roger Ebert’s (for example, we liked Wet Hot American Summer right out of the gate).

So, now, with a memorable but perhaps unheralded clip from Wayne’s World, we debut Great 10-Second Moments in Cinematic History:

ScarJo Goes for the ‘SNL’ Trifecta This Weekend

Don’t forget, Scarlett Johansson returns to Studio 8H for her third hosting turn this weekend.  Inevitably, there will be some variation on this sketch (but if Ryan Reynolds pops up again, we won’t complain):

Did you know that, according to IMDB, ScarJo’s first credited role was as Laura in the 1994 Elijah Wood “family film” North?  In his review of that movie, Roger Ebert said “I hated this movie. Hated, hated, hated, hated, hated this movie. Hated it. Hated every simpering stupid vacant audience-insulting moment of it. Hated the sensibility that thought anyone would like it. Hated the implied insult to the audience by its belief that anyone would be entertained by it,” and then later on Siskel & Ebert remarked, “I hate this movie as much as any movie we’ve ever reviewed on the 19 years we’ve been doing this show.”  So, you know, check your local listings!
