Battle of Movie Moments: The Exorcism of Jonah Hill vs. Once Upon a December

Your Champion
The Exorcism of Jonah Hill (This Is The End)


Once Upon a December (Anastasia)

The Case for The Exorcism of Jonah Hill (3):
Things go south very quickly for the cast of This Is The End, culminating in the demonic possession of Jonah Hill.  His friends gather around to try to exorcise him of the demon in what starts off as a fairly serious scene.  Then it becomes clear that Jay (Jay Baruchal) has no idea what he is doing, and it degenerates from that point on until (hilariously) no one is even paying attention to the demon possessed person they share a room with.

The Case for Once Upon a December:
A beautiful song about a past she doesn't know, this moment in Anastasia - sung by the title character - is hauntingly beautiful.  Sung as she wanders the deserted palace, the animators show off their abilities as the palace transforms to her childhood recollection of it.

Which do you pick?
The Exorcism of Jonah Hill
Once Upon a December
