2. The bit from Watchmen where Rorschach gets rescued VS. Cristiano Ronaldo missing a penalty at the 2008 Champion's League final.
The film: Loads of explosions and fire and Malin Akerman's hair and dramatic music and slow-motion and a really, really massive explosion at the end - in slow-motion!
The football: Looking like he's about to cry with fear and self-doubt, Ronaldo takes his run-up, checks his stride (in an attempt to fool the goalkeeper) and kicks the ball feebly towards the net where it's punched away.
He's devastated. Really, really upset. Look at his face. Look at it!
(Ronaldo miss at 1:00)...
The winner: Films. Ronaldo's miss is one of the funniest moments in the history of the sport, but it's soured by the knowledge that his team went on to win the trophy, ultimately easing his pain.
The Watchmen clip is best because, unlike Ronaldo's miss, it has a slow-motion explosion and the eventual outcome - Rorschach getting rescued - is more satisfying.
