One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest - the basketball game between the inmates and the orderlies, very funny, a wonderful moment of character brevity before events start to take a turn towards the tragic and confrontational:- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=togQKkA_Zws

Dead Poets' Society - "O Captain, my Captain!" - sentimental but a perfect resolution for the preceding melancholy :- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s8UL_9R_W-Y

Mad Max:Beyond Thunderdome - "The Tell" - the scene where the children tell Max the story of how they came to be left behind, including a chilling account of the "pockyclipse" that wiped out "tomorrow-morrow land" and how the survivors were "jumped by Mister Dead". I just love the use of the language in this scene, as well as the childish yet powerful images of the nuclear war that are evoked :- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=23SVHUPrUJ4&feature=related

And again from the same film - the final scene where Jedediah along with Pig-Killer, Master and a handful of the kids finally discover the nuclear-ravaged ruins of their "tomorrow-morrow land". Such a haunting and melancholy scene and it's great to see something of the aftermath of a war that has only been intimated at throughout the trilogy :- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qXYfgVUMkPc

From The Terminator - the scene where Sarah is staked out in the Tech Noir club - suspenseful, superbly paced and edited, and I just love the surreal merging of the diagetic and non-diagetic music to heighten the nightmarish vibe :- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fJjYkAs1ZFQ

Withnail and I - when Withnail delivers his Hamlet soliloquy and manages to truthfully bare more of his soul in 100 seconds than he managed in the preceding 100 minutes. Sad, bitter-sweet and beautifully delivered :- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1k7m4-Se4SI

The Haunting (1963) - 'nuff said. - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sog3etUwtSk

Amadeus- When Sallieri helps Mozart write Requiem
Cinema Paradiso- The kissing montage
The Godfather- When Michael kills Solozzo
The Godfather Part II- "I know it was you Fredo!"
Hunger (2008)- The 24 minute conversion scene between Bobby and Father Moran
Closer- Fight between Julia Roberts and Clive Owen....."He tastes like you but sweeter!"
Goodfellas- Layla sequence
The Dark Knight- Batman/Joker interrogation scene

Good pick, I didn't think of that one. I love how the wallpaper looks just enough like a face that it's creepy, but not so much that it looks contrived.

Owen is emense in that scene, he is so strong in the film in general but his acting in that, is brilliant and the climax of asking Roberts for the confirmation of want he wants to hear is just so well handled.




siegfried -> RE: It's here.... favourite ever scenes (20/2/2012 1:30:30 AM)

Cool Hand Luke - "Plastic Jesus". One of the most heartbreaking scenes ever committed to film, and proof beyond doubt that Paul Newman was one of the finest actors of his time.




Hungrymark -> RE: It's here.... favourite ever scenes (20/2/2012 10:21:02 AM)

Goodfellas - Helicopter surveillance. Virtuoso.
Heat - When they're at the dinner dance and Hanna gets called away to the murdered prostitute and you get a sequence of heart-rending discussions between various characters. Moving.
Thin Red Line - Storming the Japanese camp with a running steadicam. Thrilling.
Fargo - Any scene where Marge and Norm are in bed together, seemingly obvlious to the madness around them. Touching.
Katalin Varga - The boat scene. Tense.
Let The Right One In - Swimming pool. Technique.
Apocalypse Now - Willard going mental at the beginning. Acting?
Werckmeister Harmonies - Opening bar-room eclipse scene. Stunning, sad and uplifting at the same time.
The Wicker Man - The wicker man. Chilling.
Dumb and Dumber - Stranded in Nebraska. Tear-jerking.




st3veebee -> RE: It's here.... favourite ever scenes (20/2/2012 10:43:54 AM)

Lilo attack from Jaws. The reverse dolly shot possibly being my favourite film moment ever.

Follow the clues sequence from Amelie. Or just the entire film.

The Balrog appears.

The Matrix lobby shootout.

THAT moment in Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

The start of The Seventh Seal.

Battle in the rain in Seven Samurai.






chunkymonkey -> RE: It's here.... favourite ever scenes (20/2/2012 12:44:33 PM)

1: Roy Batty - Bladerunner - "I have seen things you people wouldn't believe"...stunning..just stunning.

2: Last Of The Mohicans - Final Scene - The music, the tension, the sadness, the violence, the joy...its just magnificent.

3: Heat - Not the obvious coffee shop one nor the ending but the bit when Hannah (Pacino) twigs that McCauley's (De-Niro's) crew have them under surveillance in the dockyard...brilliantly underplayed by Pacino..a gorgous scene.

4: Sneakers - "Too many secrets" & the whole cracking of secure networks using Janix's box - great scene!

5: Ecstasy Of Gold....Tuco running round the cemetery in TGTBATU....some of the best music ever put to film...period.

6: Dune...ok..ok..its a guilty pleasure..the bit were Paul Atredies/Muadib kills Feyd,... the shout, the rain and the whole "And how can this be..because he is the Kwisatz haderach!"

7: Salute of The jugger - end scene...Challenge has been won and Kidda is about to run to place the dogskull on the stake...Sallow (Rutger Hauer) stops her with the crowd screaming and jumping around and just says..."Walk...don't run" and then follows it up by helping Gonzo to his feet who Sallow had just previously destroyed..Gonzo's reaction..."i forgot you were better than me"....a bit obscure for sure and a real marmite film but real punch the air moment's for me personally.

8: Good Will Hunting..."Its not your fault"...nuff said....

9: Entrance of Darth Maul and the whole duel lightsabre introduction....just spine tingling good.

10:For a Few Dollars More...end scene with the pocket watches...sublime.




ace14 -> RE: It's here.... favourite ever scenes (20/2/2012 1:23:42 PM)

One of my faves comes from Dead Man's Shoes

Its the scene were Richard and Anthony are sat on some tractor tyres chatting.

The way Anthony is sat looking at his brother and re-calling the time that he raised some money doing a fun-run, is heart-breaking.

The line of dialogue that gets me is....

Anthony: They all tried to hold your hand. I didn't
Richard: No, you didn't
Anthony: Don't need to, do I?

Evil Dead 2's really good, innit...! [:D]




st3veebee -> RE: It's here.... favourite ever scenes (20/2/2012 1:54:33 PM)

I was gonna mention the whole Darth Maul finale, cause it is brilliant, but felt ashamed due to the rest of the film. (ignoring the pod race)

Yeah, I love the scene where the guy kaks his pants, too, it was great.




filmfanatic123 -> RE: It's here.... favourite ever scenes (21/2/2012 7:26:37 PM)

The ending of the Green Mile hits me right between the eyes every time - it makes me well up, and it is my personal opinion that the ending puts it above the Shawshank Redemption.

The opening of Bourne, it's a great piece of atmosphere and mystery. Sets up Jason Bourne perfectly.

The pencil scene in The Dark Knight - Just wow.

Troll yell in Troll Hunter.

When the old lady bites the fireman's jugular out in [Rec]

Zombie kill of the week in Zombieland.

When Shaun goes into the shed at the end of Shaun of the Dead - awesome ending as it's just so poignant in a zombified kind of way!

"ADRIAAAAN, I DID IT!" in Rocky.

The ending of Warrior, so uplifting yet so gut wrenching at the same time.

Octopus scene in Oldboy.

The dialogue in the farm house in Inglorious Basterds - so dense, filled with subtle nods to other films and brilliantly acted by all those involved.

And of course, the ending of Fight Club as well as the momentary flash of Tyler Durden by way of introduction.

Forgot about this - what a film that is. Absolutely fantastic performance from Paddy Considine - also established Shane Meadows as my favourite British director.

I haven't seen Dead Man's Shoes since it was on at the pictures but reading this now it's just dawned on me that the two leads have both played Rob Gretton. Well, I never.

Dennis Hopper taunting Christopher Walken about his Sicilian bloodline in True Romance. Brilliant writing. Brilliant acting. Classic scene.




st3veebee -> RE: It's here.... favourite ever scenes (22/2/2012 9:14:26 AM)

Speaking of Dead Man's Shoes: I recommended it to my friend who couldn't get past a certain scene. D'ont get me wrong: it is a shocking scene to watch but I have NEVER heard him complain about any other moment in any other film! He has a degree in film studies and has seen everything from Cannibal Holocaust to Legend of the Overfiend and nothing has shocked him till this. Just goes to show the power of this film.





ace14 -> RE: It's here.... favourite ever scenes (22/2/2012 9:33:03 AM)

I'm glad this has turned into a mini love-in for Dead Man's Shoes

POTENTIAL SPOILERS




st3veebee, with which scene did he struggle, was it the suitcase?




st3veebee -> RE: It's here.... favourite ever scenes (22/2/2012 10:00:45 AM)

It was the scene where SPOILERS when the Girl is forced to have sex with Anthony




DazDaMan -> RE: It's here.... favourite ever scenes (22/2/2012 11:11:58 AM)

Shit, so many to choose from.....

Jaws - simply so many to choose from, but it's probably got to be the first open sea encounter with the shark. Williams' score, Scheider's line, etc etc....

Battle of Britain - the "Northern Raid" sequence. The Germans foolishly believe that the RAF are truly on their last legs, and that "even a Spitfire can't be in two places at once!" So they send a wing of bombers over the North Sea to fuck up someone's day.... only to have their asses handed to them by Christopher Plummer's plucky Spitfire squadron! Not to mention Ron Goodwin's fantastically rousing score during this segment - almost makes you proud to be British!

The Thing - the dog reveal. That used to freak me out when I was younger.

First Blood - John Rambo escaping from the police station. Fucking love that. It's a tense sequence which kicks off as you'd expect, only to ramp up with Jerry Goldsmith's fantastic score. Also a worthy mention to Stallone's breakdown scene at the end.

Rambo - the night-time infiltration.

Rocky - the training montage. Gonna fly now. That is all.

Moulin Rouge - the El Tango De Roxanne sequence.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - the flying wing fight, and the truck chase.

Kick Ass - the night-vision sequence. Combination of that eerie view of the villains, the score, and the action.

633 Squadron - the last ten minutes. Another "proud to be British" moment.

True Grit (both versions) - the final gunfight. "Fill your hands, you sonofabitch!"

War Horse - ploughing the field, and also the run through No Man's Land.

Wings - the first dogfight.

Shaun of the Dead - everything that happens after they get to the Winchester is a winner.

Hot Fuzz - the last 10/15 minutes.

Casino Royale - every action sequence in that film is fantastic. From the opening black and white segment, to the fight in the Venetian house.

The Howling - Eddie Quist's transformation.

Umm.... can I post some more later??




DazDaMan -> RE: It's here.... favourite ever scenes (22/2/2012 11:18:01 AM)

Ooh, and another wee handful:

The Matrix - the helicopter rescue.

Jaws 2 - the waterskier chase.

Champions - the Grand National. That scene, coupled with the fantastic score, makes me well up every time,

Bad Taste - Derek going apeshit.

Braindead - the lawnmower sequence. "The party's over!"

That is pretty gut-wrenching. It stayed with me for days that did, although most of the film did to be honest.

The gas mask scene is fucking scary as well - I nearly shit myself when they did that reveal.

Up there as one of the best British films of the last ten years.

Yes, one of my favourite films, love this little scene as well...

Sonny "You know the lads had this ridiculous idea th.."
Richard "Yeah, it was me"

It's funny (with all the guys squashed in the car) but fucking terrifying as well. Considine and Kebbell should have won awards for those performances.




matty_b -> RE: It's here.... favourite ever scenes (22/2/2012 5:26:05 PM)

^^ This.

It's the way he casually cuts him off mid-sentence and shakes his head at the "You're not afraid of me, are ya?" question. Fucking brilliant.
