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??
