Battle of Movie Moments: Train Wreck vs. I'm Tired

Your Champion
Train Wreck (Super 8)


Your Challenger
I'm So Tired (Blazing Saddles)

The Case for Train Wreck (1):
While quite and contemplative in the first part, Super 8 shifts into high gear during this moment, with a train derailment that is a symphony of destruction.  While one might argue with how believable it is for all of the kids to be alive by the end of it, that doesn't take away from the thrill of the moment, nor the mystery of the end...

The Case for I'm Tired:
In a movie filled with laughs, this number by Lili von Shtupp (Madeline Kahn) is both a breather and another joke, as Lili sings about how she exhausted she is by the constant attention of her admirers.

Which do you pick?
Train Wreck
I'm Tired
