"Time (Stops) in a Bottle"
THIS IS "THE" SCENE. The greatest exhibition of a super power ever imagined and makes you wish you have one.

The Avengers (2012)
"I'm always angry."
It's a dream come true. A movie that every kid ages 5-80 wanted to see, and Joss Whedon made it happen. And we never thought Mark Ruffalo would make a convincing Bruce Banner/Hulk but he did. This scene made me jump from my seat.

Warm Bodies (2013)
"Opening Scene"
Yes, its a 4-minute narrative of the lead character, like a 4-minute Coca-Cola commercial or something, warm, giggly, sets the mood, tone and everything.

"Burly Brawl"

Keanu knows Kung-fu. Of all the fight scenes in cinema he makes some of the real-life martial artist pale in comparison. Such choreography!

"The bar scene"
There are so many great scenes in the movie. Most of them, involving the exchanges of Will Hunting and another person. But the bar scene leading to the "How do you like them apples" quip is the one that immediately sticks to mind: a kick ass display of genius and machismo.

Contact (1997)
"Journey to Vega"

The first time I saw Vega (or its vision by Ellie (Jodie Foster)), I was out of breath. It is easily the most beautiful place imagined.

"Sam's Speech"
Great scene that intercuts to scenes of battles, Samwise Gamgee's lengthy emotional monologue about how "there's some good in the world and its worth fighting for" could've ended the middle earth war right there and then. I mean, that speech would've melted Sauron's heart.

Unforgiven (1992)
"I killed women and children"
Probably, the best payback in a Western movie or any movie for that matter. William Munny's lone annihilation of a crowded saloon is the standing monument to revisionist Western: gritty, unapologetic and just high plains bad ass.

Cold Mountain (2003)
"The Reunion"

At first glance, its not much of a scene--Unless, of course, you have seen the rest of the movie before it, you'd feel for Inman.

"Under Pressure"
Underrated black comedy. Again, a song figuring out effectively in a scene: Queen's "Under Pressure" blares out while Robin Williams, emotionally released, runs while stripping naked to dive in the school pool. It's a big payoff scene when you watch the movie. And you'll need a week to be able to get the tune out of your head.

"The ice dance"
The most touching scene in Tim Burton's fairy tale is when Kim (Winona Ryder) dances to the ice flakes of Edward's ice sculpture.
People who added this item 820 Average listal rating (544 ratings) 5.9 IMDB Rating 6.4
Space Cowboys (2000)
"Fly Me to the Moon-End scene"
"Fly Me to the Moon" is a great Sinatra song. I liked it way before. But after "Space Cowboys" and the way it played in that scene where the camera skims the surface of the moon to reveal Tommy Lee Jones leaning against a rock with who knows what last thoughts he's having, the song just came up with a whole new meaning to me.

Constantine (2005)
"Hell"
John Contantine's trip to the wells of hell gave us a terrifying, painting-like vision, of eternal suffering.

People who added this item 4573 Average listal rating (3216 ratings) 6 IMDB Rating 6.5
"Rise of the Tripods"
For me, one of the best orchestration of suspense, terror and panic. Steven Spielberg builds the tension with a masterstroke.

Donnie Darko (2001)
"School Day"
Tears For Fears' "Head Over Heels" was already a sentimental favorite, it just fit in perfectly with the school morning routine in this cult classic. Kinda makes you want to go back to school and relive it.

"Is this heaven?--End scene"
To which Kevin Costner's Ray Kinsella replies, "It's Iowa." When Ray meets ghost dad, the very meaning of life (including the baseball field) opens up to him. It's a teary moment not easily believable, but still sucks you in. Aww.

Easy Rider (1969)
"Born to be wild—Opening credits"
The first time I ever saw Easy Rider I was knocked back by the opening credits with the Steppenwolf anthem that I wanted to just repeat the opening scene over and over. The way the title appears as Dennis Hopper spreads his arms, I mean, waaaay f---- cool!

Oldboy (2003)
"Hammer fight"
The hero protagonist finds himself facing a hallway full of ready for battle thugs with knives, pipes and 4x4s..and he's only carrying a hammer. A cinematic ballet of a fight scene.

Swingers (1997)
"The answering machine"
In one of the funniest scene in "Swingers," stand-up comedian Mike breaks the 3-day rule, and calls the girl he met at the bar, with disastrous result,

Titanic (1997)
"You jump, I jump. Right?"
So, I have "Titanic" on my list. But its not that "I'm the king of the world" or Jack's death or "I'm Flying." It's that scene where Rose gets on the life boat ahead of Jack, and you can read on her face that she's trying to make that one decision. And as they slowly become separated from each other, they lock eyes, the flares light up, "My Heart Will Go On" cues in, and I'm paralyzed with inner feelings. Those damn flares, they got me.

"Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya"
No matter how many times you watch "The Princess Bride," even if you're tired and like, feel like dozing off. You'll always light up during the scene where Inigo finally faces the six-fingered man. All movie junkies know the line and have spoken it the same way many times.

The A-Team (2010)
"Falling Tank"
A plummeting tank with a chute being peppered by drone planes. Face (Bradley Cooper) mounts the machine gun to counter them shouting, "What've you got, bitches?" What've you got?!" Feel the adrenaline!

Zombieland (2009)
"Opening Credits-"For Whom the Bell Tolls""
When Metallica's "For whom the bell tolls" kicks the opening credits, there is a moment of pause immediately followed by a whisper of "f--- awesome!" "This is going to be f--- awesome!"

"Napoleon Dynamite's disco dance""
No dance number is more fun and more prone to imitation than Jon Heder's medley of 70's disco dancing. And what an exit!

"That's that.""
There are two momentous confrontations between Adam Sandler and Philip Seymour Hoffman in the movie, the phone call and the face off and both are equally tense because so much shit has already happened. But the face-off, man. That line: "I have a love of my life. It makes me stronger than anything you can imagine." True love makes you grow balls of steel.

"The punch"
It goes like this: a group of friends began talking about bad ass kill scenes in movies and further in the conversation somebody says, "That one where Bruce Willis punches a guy's nose up his brain killing him instantly!" The room explodes with, "Fuck, yeahs!."

Troy (2004)
"Is There No One Else?"

The fighting machine that is Achilles is introduced in the movie via his first fight with the hulking Boagarius (played by WWE wrestler Nathan Jones) and with one swift stab kills him rather unceremoniously. He then leers over the enemy asking, "Is There No One Else?". That is awesome.

"Brass balls speech"
Or, is it a "speech with brass balls?" Alec Baldwin makes one of cinema's greatest short appearances as the man form "up" there, whose watch is more expensive than your car, who visits the office to motivate the troops, or humiliate them.

Stand by Me (1986)
"End scene"
End scenes are not happy in the Stephen King universe. The ending of "Stand by Me" where the graying Gordie punches in the last line of his novel was supposed to lift your spirits up. But you realize its has a certain kind of sadness to it. Like what was said in the movie, you don't know whether to laugh or cry. Cue in the Ben E. King song.

Ed Wood (1994)
"This film is for Bela--End scene"
Tim Burton's biopic of cinema's "worst" director is in many ways, his masterpiece. A heartfelt ending that makes you want to stand up and applaud. What a great musical score. What a great postscript.

Spider-Man 2 (2004)
"In the Coffee Shop"
Personally, I think Spider-Man 2 is the best super-hero movie ever made not just because of Raimi's eye-popping action sequences but because of all the tingling emotions involved. And in this scene of scenes, it has both.

"Zihuatanejo—End scene"
All two hours of Shawshank Redemption leads to the reunion of Andy and Red, and in less than a minute, we grasp the whole essence of the movie: a story of everlasting friendship. They exchange quiet smiles that are ocean deep in happiness.


geojones100's rating:

Shower scene in "Psycho," Darth Vader's revelation in "Empire Strikes Back," Here's looking at you, kid scene in "Casablanca," "City Lights" ending, Benjamin's seduction in "The Graduate," Rosebud revealed, The Sixth Sense twist and many scenes in The Godfather trilogy: All memorable and iconic scenes in the history of movies. But there are movie scenes that to me, are more personal, more moving, and whatever I do, I couldn't forget.
