My Top Five Severed Limbs In Movies

I normally start with my favorite with these lists but I’ll go backwards for this one, starting with number five:

5. Planet Terror

Because, really, what’s cooler than a machine gun for a leg?

4. Monty Python And The Holy Grail

It’s just a flesh wound!

3. Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope

So many to choose from. Could do an entire list with just Star Wars limbs, hands, etc. But I like the Ponda Baba arm-severing in the Cantina. And Robot Chicken made this one REALLY funny. If I was a Star Wars geek I could go on about the arm on the floor not being the correct one to match what Ponda Baba’s arms actually look like or whatever. But I can’t say I ever noticed. Because I’m a girl and not that geeky. :-p

2. Kill Bill

Again – so many to choose from in just this one movie. But I’ve gone with poor Sofie Fatale.

1. Teeth

Okay – I may be stretching it a bit on what’s considered a limb? I won’t go into any detail – not necessary for anyone who’s seen the movie. And I choose the final “severing” in this movie as there’s more than one.

(OMG she didn’t include Evil Dead II! What about Reservoir Dogs? Do ears count? Toes? Big Lebowski? Decapitations? Am I going to get these sort of replies?) šŸ™‚

  1. Michael Ironside having both his arms torn off in Verhoeven’s Total Recall is a personal fave of mine. “See you at the party, Richter!”
