Great Moments In Badass History II - "Who's laughing now?"

Do I have to explain this one? Originally posted at Great Moments In Badass History, Bruce Campbell Bruce Campbell Bruce Campbell. 'Nuff said.

My turn up to the bat for the trifecta of Brucei. You'd think, opening with an awful pun like that, I was going to be revealing an oft recounted badass moment of ol' Bruce Wayne, but no, not this time. This time...


Evil Dead 2 is one of the greatest remakes of all time. It's a remake of Evil Dead 1. That's common knowledge. But in this film, it turns up everything to eleven. Raimi cuts lose with a bigger budget, and half the film is just Bruce Campbell playing against himself. Literally.

Case in point below. His hand is posessed. And you know what he does? He cuts it off. He cuts it off with a chainsaw. Later in the film, he one ups this moment by attaching a chainsaw to his recently stumpified stump, but right here? This is where the ascension of Bruce Campbell to godhood begins.

"That's right... who's laughing now? WHO'S LAUGHING NOW?!"

THAT was badass.
