Current mood (rude awakenings).

Cinematic Rude Awakenings from Roman Holiday on Vimeo.

Nope you're not dreamin' (har har har). It's another montage finally. This time I'm highlighting how movie characters react to a less than restful slumber.

Fun fact: While searching for clips I discovered there was a joke in the 2008 Oscars ceremony where they mentioned that due to the writer's strike they had to resort to using increasingly specific montages to pad the time out. One of these was entitled "Bad Dreams: An Oscar Salute". It featured 7 movies. By comparison I was able to scrounge up 89 films.

So, here are the films used in this bolting upright montage:

*This gem was found on youtube under the title "Best waking up from a nightmare scene ever". I must agree. If it's unclear what he's holding it is in fact a cat.
