The moment when Andy Dufresne says, "considering I am innocent of this crime I find it decidedly inconvenient the gun was never found".

The last ten minutes of Andrei Rublev.

The bits where the Bond theme powers through the soundtrack.

The last five minutes of The Great Dictator.

The moment the Tramp sees the Blind Girl at the end of City Lights.

"I'm finished!"

The Star Destroyer soaring overhead in Star Wars.

"I was cured!"

"Merry Christmas you old Savings and Loans!"

The 360 shot at the end of The 400 Blows, and the freeze frame that ends it.

The kissing montage in Cinema Paradiso.



Add your own, I'll add more.

Japanese submarine slammed two torpedoes into our side, Chief. We was comin' back from the island of Tinian to Leyte... just delivered the bomb. The Hiroshima bomb. Eleven hundred men went into the water. Vessel went down in 12 minutes. Didn't see the first shark for about a half an hour. Tiger. 13-footer. You know how you know that when you're in the water, Chief? You tell by looking from the dorsal to the tail fin. What we didn't know, was our bomb mission had been so secret, no distress signal had been sent. They didn't even list us overdue for a week. Very first light, Chief, sharks come cruisin', so we formed ourselves into tight groups. You know, it was kinda like old squares in the battle like you see in the calendar named "The Battle of Waterloo" and the idea was: shark comes to the nearest man, that man he starts poundin' and hollerin' and screamin' and sometimes the shark will go away... but sometimes he wouldn't go away. Sometimes that shark he looks right into ya. Right into your eyes. And, you know, the thing about a shark... he's got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll's eyes. When he comes at ya, doesn't seem to be living... until he bites ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then... ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin'. The ocean turns red, and despite all the poundin' and the hollerin', they all come in and they... rip you to pieces. You know by the end of that first dawn, lost a hundred men. I don't know how many sharks, maybe a thousand. I know how many men, they averaged six an hour. On Thursday morning, Chief, I bumped into a friend of mine, Herbie Robinson from Cleveland. Baseball player. Boatswain's mate. I thought he was asleep. I reached over to wake him up. He bobbed up, down in the water just like a kinda top. Upended. Well, he'd been bitten in half below the waist. Noon, the fifth day, Mr. Hooper, a Lockheed Ventura saw us. He swung in low and he saw us... he was a young pilot, a lot younger than Mr. Hooper. Anyway, he saw us and he come in low and three hours later a big fat PBY comes down and starts to pick us up. You know that was the time I was most frightened... waitin' for my turn. I'll never put on a lifejacket again. So, eleven hundred men went in the water; 316 men come out and the sharks took the rest, June the 29th, 1945. Anyway, we delivered the bomb.

Carpets in public places are so rare these days.
The smell of popcorn.
The communal nature of the experience.
The THX thing.
The Dolby thing.
The odd bit of sound that sounds like a needle jumping on a record.
The Kylie Agent Provocateur Ad.
The big cups.




REALLYMAD -> RE: Reasons I Love Cinema (20/1/2012 5:20:46 PM)

Maxine Bolton.

18 years old. Back seats, late evening performance. What a pair of knockers that girl had. 34DD.

Can't remember to this day what was playing but I remember my favourite line of the evening; "That's why I wore a short skirt."

I'm sure the bloke further along the aisle was doing the same.

Hey come on, I was 18, the hormones were raging and she intentionally wasn't wearing a bra. Call it a moment of weakness.

Just a few examples of why I love cinema.

"Oh Captain, my Captain!"

Withnail's delivery of the Hamlet soliloquy in the rain, beautifully delivered, devestatingly poignant.

The basketball game in One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest. Brilliant characters in one of the best cast ensembles ever.

Paul Giamatti in Sideways. Because just once in a while a performance (and a film) will come along and devestate you personally with its resonance.

The entirety of Toy story 3 - from the brilliantly inventive Western Adventure opener to the fantastic Mariachi rendition of the theme song during the end credits - that an animated film about a bunch of talking toys can have more genuine drama, wit, pathos and suspense than most of the live action Hollywood films that came out the same year.

Jack Lemmon in Some Like It Hot - to quote Mark Cousins it's a performance with which he's just "bursting with the joy of being alive".

Jimmy Cagney in Angels With Dirty Faces - in which the man bristles with so much cocky energy he's like a walking "fuck you" on legs.

Poltergeist - "Mommy...there's somebody here." A movie which changed everything for me at the age of eight. I only have to think of the opening credits and I'm shivering. To this day I still can't see the MGM lion roaring or hear the first few bars of the Star Spangled Banner without getting a chill up my spine.

The opening title sequence of T2. Brilliant theme song, searing, haunting imagery.




TheFuzz_1989 -> RE: Reasons I Love Cinema (20/1/2012 8:22:19 PM)

Yay! A positive thread!

I tried to find a gif to post, but screw it it's late.

Star Wars - from the opening shot of the cruiser to the final medal ceremony. Absolutely gobsmacked when i saw it as a young lad.
