Training Day and the Prototype are my favorites.
I get the sense that Darth Maul is just toying with the Rancor up to this point..kind've like a bullfighter 'tags' the bull a certain amount of times before applying the killing blow, which Maul looks poised to deliver. Gorgeous.
Darth Vader's caress on the fighter's 'cheek' is just chilling. You can almost hear him whispering "Patience my sweet..."
