Battle of Movie Moments: Ridiculous Revenge vs. The Tale of Mister Babadook

Your Champion
Ridiculous Revenge (The Emperor's New Groove)


Your Challenger
The Tale of Mister Babadook (The Babadook)

The Case for Ridiculous Revenge (2):
This bit from The Emperor's New Groove is Yzma at her best:  Long, convoluted revenge followed by a pragmatic approach, all while beautifully delivered by Eartha Kitt.  Paired with a unique bit of animation, this sequence is one of the more hilarious parts of the movie.

The Case for The Tale of Mister Babadook:
Sometimes you read a book so scary you cannot finish it, as Amelia (Essie Davis) finds when reading a children's book her son Samual (Noah Wiseman) picks out one night.  From this point on, both mother and child find themselves haunted by the creature, forgetting that once he has been invited in, you cannot get rid of him...

Which do you pick?
Ridiculous Revenge
The Tale of Mister Babadook
