8 Things I Love About... Army of Darkness

If I had it entirely my way, I'd have posted 8 pictures of the guy with the Fu Manchu 'stache. This one's also cool for the kid in the background who's so excited that you'd think he was at a Stryper concert.
The Chainsaw Leap.
"It's a trick. Get an axe."
Attack of the Four-Inch Tall Groovies.
I strongly believe that "I'm blind. I'm blind!" moment that's followed by that wink and that noise is the best thing the great Bruce Campbell has ever done.
The three words from the undeniably great The Day The Earth Stood Still.
That moment when Fu Manchu 'Stache Dude basically saves the day and keeps the movie going.
The S-Mart Ending.  Sorry Sam, I know you didn't want this and I may be a primitive knucklehead for saying this, but "Hail to the King, Baby." did a lot more for this movie's success than that goofy time travel ending would have.

The one thing that I would have included in this list is the fact that the DVD has hands down the best commentary I have ever heard! I love it! Sometimes I just watch it with the commentary on, and I never do that with any other film.

Good list. I'd add the weapon MONTAGE!

You know it's a great movie when I laugh out loud at the screencaps. I wouldn't have been able to narrow it down to 8 - I'd have had to include every individual frame of the movie. And I agree, the theatrical ending was much better.

Great list and what a fun movie. Like Marvin said, I would have found it impossible to narrow the list down to just 8, but you did a damn good job. Love the fu manchu dude!
