Jacob's Ladder Scenarios

Recommended Posts

I figure that since this question has been killed for the live shows, for good reason, that it would be interesting to gauge what people think are the JLS for the movies, or the scene that is the start of the JLS, that have been done on the show. And since I have a history of doing these kinda lists I'm going to post what I think for the movies I've seen, since there are a small number for the show that I haven't. Please feel free to add your own scenarios or list ones for films I left blank. Here are the first 20 and I will be continuing to add on as I get more time in the coming days.


1. Burlesque - Didn't see


2. Season of the Witch - Cage's character dies during the opening Crusade montage.


3. Old Dogs - Didn't see


4. The Last Airbended - Aang is dead, still frozen in the iceberg.


5. Drive Angry - Cage's character is just trapped in hell, dreaming of his escape.


6. Battlefield Earth - Jonnie is killed upon first meeting Travolta's character.


7. All About Steve - Bullock is killed falling into the sinkhole.


8. Sucker Punch - Baby Doll is killed by her stepdad after accidentally killing her sister.


9. Fast Five - Dom is killed in the bus crash. Though there are countless other times the JLS could occur.

18. Gigli - Affleck is shot by Pacino at the end, instead of Affleck's boss.

I'm so glad I found this topic. One of my favourite films is a Jacob's Ladder scenario- actually, two of my favourite films are now that I think of it. And those films are STAY, starring Ryan Gosling, Ewen MacGregor, and Naomi Watts; and the Soderbergh/Clooney version of SOLARIS. What I want to know from everyone else is: what is your favourite JLS film?
