Quentin Hapsburg – The Naked Gun 2 1/2: The Smell of Fear

If you’re a slimy oil executive intent on getting rich by deceiving the President into endorsing your nuclear fuel initiatives, you have to be careful who you date. This was Quentin Hapsburg’s undoing. His meticulously laid out plans were dashed when he began dating Frank Drebin’s ex-fiancee. With his plot unspooling, Hapsburg got desperate and attempted to kill his adversaries with a small nuclear device. However, before he can do so, he is thrown from a window and then attacked by a lion. Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.

Scar – The Lion King

It’s rare that we get to see much lion on lion violence. That’s part of what makes Disney’s The Lion King so awesome. That and the meerkat.

After stealing the throne from his brother and making the jungle a crappy place to live, the treacherous Scar finds himself going toe-to-toe with his nephew, Simba. The young lion forces his uncle to admit his crimes and then kicks his ass all up and down, and eventually over the edge of, Pride Rock. However, I’m still let down that Simba didn’t yell “hakuna matata” before delivering the final blow. Missed opportunity there.
