Favorite movie scenes.

  • I've been thinking about some of the scenes I love in some of my favorite movies and I thought it might be fun to share a few and maybe get some other folks to share theirs.
    I'm not going to tell people how to reply, but I'm going to post only three for now.

    The first is from Die Hard: With a Vengeance, This Time It's Personal. McClane goes into the elevator with four men who plan to kill him and he doesn't know it.


    This one from Bladerunner is probably my single favorite scene of all time. Roy Batty's brief speech is beautiful and brilliant. Deckard is completely at his mercy in this moment, yet Batty has learned how precious life actually is.


    The last is from Infinity War. Tony's last stand against Thanos is amazing. He pulls out all the stops and manages to make a god bleed.



    Anyone else got some good scenes? SHOW ME WHAT YOU GOT!

  • Those were great, Soulfish.

    Pmed, in my opinion, it was that scene that won Robin Williams the Oscar. He was great in that movie.

  • Before George Lucas screwed it up by ham-fistedly making Vader shout 'NO!' in the Blu-ray editions, the scene in Return of the Jedi when Vader turns on the Emperor. In the original cut, there's some genuine subtlety in David Prowse's acting, simply in his movement, even through all the plastic. What's amazing to me is the first time you see it, you barely notice. So much of the scene is focused on Luke and Palpatine.

    This will probably get me laughed off here, but all the way back to when I was a child, I loved the scene in Mary Poppins when Mr. Banks walks through the empty streets of London knowing he's going to be fired. No dialogue, the only sound is a melancholy instrumental version of 'Feed the Birds', and you're left wondering what he's thinking in those moments. I've always believed it was one of the most beautiful scenes in film.

    Again, this will probably get me laughed off here, but Prince Philip's escape and the dragon fight from Disney's animated Sleeping Beauty. 5 minutes of pure animated perfection. The greatest animated sequence in film history, to my mind.

    These are a few that have been my favorites since I was little. I'll have to think longer on this.

  • No link, but it's the scene in Rudy where he opens the letter and reads that he's finally been admitted to Notre Dame. Gets me right in the 'same-thing-when-I-got-admitted-to-UW-EE' spot. His was after years of struggle and trying, mine was 32 years after flunking out of UW on my first try and just knowing for that whole time that I'd blown my only chance.

  • Not a movie, but one of my favorite scenes of all time is from Band of Brothers, when the planes are taking off on D'day. The music is perfect. The drums and the lone horn playing, along with the sounds of the planes themselves, when the first plane rolls down the runway gives me chills everytime.

  • 3 of my favorite monologues. Careful, the first one nsfw.

    From Django. Dinner scene by Leo:



    From Saving Private Ryan. Ad lib story by Matt Damon:



    From Good Will Hunting. Robin Williams opens up:

    I may get hate for this, but I never thought Robin Williams was funny. He never even made me slightly giggle. Not once. That said, he was a SUPER underrated dramatic actor. He's brilliant in Good Will Hunting. No Oscar winner has even been more deserving, in my opinion. He nailed that role.

    The greatest Western of the last 45 years--it's that enduring and that good. Almost every single scene is an undeniable classic. Kilmer was incredible-his best role and those great lines still pop up in my head today regularly.

    It's a good movie, but I'm not sure it's in the top 5 westerns of the past 45 years, much less #1. Come on man. Wyatt Earp's "No...NO...NO!...NO!!!" scene at the river eliminates it from consideration all by itself.

    Unforgiven is unquestionably better. Appaloosa. Open Range. All that said, Kilmer is excellent in the movie. Even if he has a three-shot double barrel shotgun.

  • Regardless how you feel about it, or rate it. (I love it) It's amazing it turned out as well as it did, really messy production.

    https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat- ... rn-1028891

    I can't find it, but I swear I once heard Russell talk about he has all the original tapes/film or whatever in his possession. And people have asked him to do go back and re-edit the film again, and get it right.... like a directors cut, but he's said he'd never devote the time to it.

    Let me ask you this...how many times have you watched Unforgiven since it was released? But how many times have you watched Tombstone? Unforgiven was classic-Eastwood and Hackman doesn’t get any better, but I'm willing to bet almost everyone here has watched Tombstone significantly more than Unforgiven. And there's a reason--Tombstone has an undeniable addictiveness. The lines were so clever and expertly delivered that it brings you back many times to hear again.

    The best Westerns have a uniqueness to them--often more a style than a particular dynamite script. Take Eastwood's classic 60s films--they had a style that made them memorable much more than the actual substance. That's why for me Tombstone is so special. It's not flawless-some say the chick actress was miscast, but it has a signature, uniqueness all its own.

  • Interesting debate.

    I mean Unforgiven is a far "better" movie in the classic sense of the term.

    But Tombstone is a far more entertaining movie and truer to the "Western" motif

    Brad Pitt's Jesse James biopic is similar. Tremendous movie. But not one to watch over and over

    IMHO it’s got to be on any list of top westerns.

  • This is easily one of my favorite movie scenes, the end of No Country for Old Men. Typical Coen Brothers, they never end their movies with a bang, they want you to sit there and process what you just saw quietly.

    No better example than No Country with Tommy Lee Jones talking about his dream about his father, being scared of the dark............summarizing what he just went through with all the blood and violence and fear that the world isn't quite as black and white as he thought it to be, then the fade out and clock ticking in the background.

    So damn good.

    That “No” scene was actually something that Wyatt Earp did according to the people who were there. The scene does seem impossible but it was in there because of the story men who fought with Earp told.
