OMAHA BEACH LANDING

The Omaha Beach landing scene is one of the most gruesome and terrifying depictions of battle I have ever seen and it will probably remain at the top of this list for a very long time to come. The genius of this 20 minute long is impossible to encapsulate in words, one can only sit down and watch in awe as an onslaught of images is set loose that will never leave one's mind. This scene is cinema at its greatest heights

Blade Runner (1982)
1. Opening Scene - L.A. 2019

Blade Runner's greatest strength are the impeccable visuals which are present throughout the entire running time, the opening scene is however easily the best scene to give an idea of just how beautiful Blade Runner is as we see a dark and disturbing (also frighteningly probable) future version of L.A.

2. Tears in Rain

Heartbreaking, thought-provoking, flawless.

1. Glimpse of the Killer

Quite possibly one of the most genuinely spine-chilling moments in film is when (during one of the murders) the camera pans into the dark fields and for a few seconds one can see a silhouette slowly standing up and then hiding in the corn.

2. The Train Tracks + the very last scene

Leaving this one blank in the interest of not spoiling anything

Zodiac (2007)
1. Hurdy Gurdy Man

The First Zodiac murder, beautiful yet raw, a very rare combination, but when it works, boy will it stick to you.

2. The Stabbing of two Lovers

Gut-wrenchingly real, a scene that truly made me feel sick, achieved not through gross-out, but an accurate portrayal of what a person being stabbed looks like, sounds like, feels like.

Mean Streets (1973)
Opening Credits

The intro to Mean Streets has probably some of the best use of pop music in film history (Ronettes - Be my Baby)

Inception (2010)
Hotel Corridor

Breathtakingly choreographed fighting scene in an environment that is constantly rolling, a gem of a scene in an otherwise decent movie

Eerie and intense little moment, as the US Dallas encloses on the Red October

Drive (2011)
1. The Opening Scene

Flawlessly filmed chase sequence that despite being rather quiet finds a spot in the list of most nerve-racking scenes ever put to film

2. The Elevator

Raw and unforgiving violence, fantastic use of space and character placement
fabs's rating:
Rate:
Watched Wanted Custom

A collaboration of some of the greatest, most moving, most cognitively challenging scenes ever put to film
