Top 10 Best Movie Fireworks Scenes

This Top 10 Best Movie Fireworks Scenes list was put together by Tyler Norman, an avid fireworks lover as well as an independent filmmaker and screenwriter who recently did a short film which was produced by John Travolta's brother Joey (in post-production on this). Tyler is also working on getting his first feature film project up and going.

10. CONEHEADS (1993) - Is this what fireworks look like on other planets?

9. JOE DIRT (2001) - I'd rank this higher if it wasn't all talk, but still a classic scene.

8. MEET JOE BLACK (1998) - Jim Souza was actually hired to do this one.

7. DANNY DECKCHAIR (2003) - A man in a chair strapped to hundreds of balloons flies straight through a volley of fireworks.
(skip forward to 2:30 - only clip I could find)

6. SHANGHAI KNIGHTS (2003) - A huge fireworks display in 1890's London is the site of the film's final battle. In one scene we get a live 6" mortar hoisted over one's shoulder and used as a bazooka.

5. THE BOY WHO COULD FLY (1986) - During a dream sequence, a fireworks display is witnessed close-up in the clouds. One of the greatest "movie magic" scenes ever.

4. THE SANDLOT (1993) - A group of kids use the light from a July 4th fireworks display to play baseball at night. A double whammy of classic Americana.

3. MARY POPPINS (1964) - Who can forget this one? A wannabe "pirate captain" uses a horizontal volley of fireworks to break up a rooftop dance sequence. Impressive effects for the '60s.

2. THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING (2001) - Want some really unusual and impressive fireworks? Get Gandalf to come to your next party.

1. V FOR VENDETTA (2006) - Hands down the most powerful and effective use of pyrotechnics in any film story. I will never forget the chills I got watching this in the theater.
Honorable Mention:

- 1991 movie "Dutch" with Ed O'neill, very funny stuff with a roman candle is all I'll say.

- "The 3 Amigos"- my personal favorite with castillos and an awesome soundtrack! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KUw5HNYIBTs -(pyro starts at 7:00 min)
