Battle of Movie Moments: Church Fight vs. Be Prepared

Your Champion
Church Fight (Kingsman: The Secret Service)


Be Prepared (The Lion King)

The Case for Church Fight (2):
Sometimes a movie shocks you with violence, and sometimes it does it with an amazingly choreographed fight scene.  Kingsman combines the two for a brutal moment in a church where the villain causes everyone to go into a rage and start attacking each other.  Highly trained Kingsman Harry Hart is also there and adds to the carnage.

The Case for Be Prepared:
Continuing a tradition of the villain having one of the best songs in the movie, The Lion King gives Scar one of the better villain songs in the canon.  The song is beautifully animated, using sickly greens to emphasize the sliminess of the villain while also using a Nazi-type march with the hyenas to show just how bad of news they were.  All villain songs should be this good.

Which do you pick?
Church Fight
Be Prepared
