10 Movies Whose Plot Hinges on Food

As an integral part of human culture, food sits right up there along with sex and violence, and therefore, gets a lot of play on the big screen. Cinematic food is a tricky business, though. Like a TV commercial it has to look appetizing (unless, of course, the point of its being there is to suggest the opposite), unlike a TV commercial it also has to look realistic, be consumed by actors for take after take, all the while being subtly suggestive, somehow, of a deeper purpose.

‘Do The Right Thing’ — Movies About Food

The Eater: Radio Raheem (Bill Nunn), an impressively big dude with something of a difficult disposition.

The Food: Slices from Sal's Famous

The Hitch: Raheem is already pretty unhappy with Sal (Danny Aiello) for making him turn down his giant radio, when gadfly/provocateur Buggin' Out (Giancarlo Esposito) enlists Raheem to support his boycott of Sal's Famous (to protest Sal's only including Italian Americans on his Wall of Fame), things get a good deal more combustible.

Let's just say her death is about as interminable as the two dreadful Matrix sequels put together on an infinite loop. Can we speak here and now on the subject of extended, overly dramatic dying scenes? As our adroit disgruntled narrator explains to us in painstaking detail during this clip, less is most definitely more when it comes to these things

No. 5: ‘Live and Let Die’ – 10 Ridiculous Movie Death Scenes

Okay, so maybe the 1973 circa Roger Moore James Bond was a wee bit more cartoony than our modern Daniel Craig version. You almost have to feel for poor Yaphet Kotto as he frantically points out the sharky danger swirling around them after they hit the water, but alas for the predator, Bond has seen fit to blow up his adversary the old fashioned way

No. 4: ‘Shark Attack 3’ – 10 Ridiculous Movie Death Scenes

Speaking of sharks, who wouldn't want to see a bunch of rich, yacht-riding, tux-wearing dbags get all chawed up by a shark the size of a Greyhound bus? To make things even more pleasurable, some of the men exhibit particularly boorish behavior (stealing a lifejacket off a scared blonde woman? Chomp!) right before getting swallowed whole

No. 3: ‘Karate Girl’ – 10 Ridiculous Movie Death Scenes

You've no doubt gotten to see this one a few times already, as it became an internet sensation not that long ago, but there's so much more to enjoy here than just that admittedly brilliant sequence. If you want to go straight to the death scene, be our guest (begins at the 2:10 mark), but you'll be missing out on a whole bunch of other, equally enticing things, including a bitch beat-down by a woman who makes a fist with her thumbs pointing up over her fingers (and later shuts her eyes when she pulls the trigger of her gun)
