Make 'Em Laugh is pretty amazing and Singin' in the Rain - god, Gene Kelly is dreamy.

But still - Moses Supposes is just wonderful. The two dancing in unison is fab.

No, it is, it's actually quite a lot better than that (unless you meant the smiley, in which case you are possibly correct).

I think this is probably my favourite number ever in a film, though:

Aw, shucks, that's such a lovely scene.

7. "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn."

Gone With the Wind, 1939.

Despite its dubious stand on race (which is frankly uncomfortable in parts) and Scarlett's inexplicable love for Ashley (well, I suppose she wants the one she can't have, but Rhett (despite all his many faults) is a charmer), I enjoyed Gone with the Wind far more than I expected - the two leads are great and the technicolour is gorgeous.

If it ended on this line, it would be fantastic - what a ballsy ending that would have been. And I know this line has been chewed over by popular culture for seventy odd years, but damn, it's just perfect. Clark Gable's delivery is spot on - one of the best delivered lines in film.

Great choices with 3, 4 and 5. Looks like it's gonna be a great list.

Still not seen A Single Man.

Thanks

Seriously, see A Single Man - Firth's performance is one of the best of the last decade.

8. Married Life
Up, 2009


I remember going to see Up. The cinema was full, mainly of families. And by around ten (maybe less) minutes in, there were tears. Not from the children, mind, but the adult (and me and my friends). The Married Life montage packs a punch to the heart, bringing with it a lump to the throat and tears to the eyes. Telling a love story in four and a half minutes, Pixar show just how good they are. It's the fact they can't have children (and maybe even lost a baby, judging by the fact they were painting the nursery), that really gets to me. All in all, a heartbreaking scene, but a great one.

Watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9yjAFMNkCDo

I don't know anyone who didn't love this scene, it's Pixar's finest 5 minutes.

Such a great moment. Don't think I've ever cried so early into a film before. It didn't help at the cinema that I was already in a mushy mood thanks to Partly Cloudy

I know - I can't think of any other film when they throw something like that at you so early on.

Partly Cloudy was lovely too, though not my favourite Pixar short.

9. It Feels Like Christmas
The Muppet Christmas Carol, 1993.


Of all the scenes in all the Christmas films in all the world, this scene sums up Christmas to me. It is Christmas. Just thinking of the song fills me with so much Christmas spirit, I want to go and sit in front of the fire with a mug of mulled wine, a cinnamon biscuit and the Doctor Who Christmas Special. It's full of warmth, love and a quiet, contented, yet exuberant happiness. Gorgeous.

My favourite Caine scene is him losing it in Little Voice but Muppet Xmas Carol is lovely.

Nice choice. Caine's got better scenes, but that one's good and I like his cringey dancing.

True, but as that cringy dancing was an important part of my childhood, I forgive it. I find it endearing anyway now (to be honest, I didn't notice it when I was four).

You ever see the Adam & Joe t.v. series? There was one sketch where they did a Bob Hoskins parody, that had Adam doing really broad Cockney and singing and dancing with street urchins to a song made up of Hoskins' film titles "Mer me maids, Blue me ice..." and every time I see Caine dance in Muppets, I think of that Hoskins parody, for some reason.

10. The Final Duel
Once Upon A Time In The West, 1968.


From one of my favourite Westerns, this may be the greatest flashback in film. With two lines of dialogue and an amazing piece of music, Leone creates one of the most tense, gripping, just fantastic scenes. It's a wonderfully told scene, taking its time to build and build into something unforgettable then bang. Leone's close-ups are used brilliantly here - Fonda and Bronson's eyes doing all the talking the scene needs.

The Man That Got Away I really love A Star is Born and Judy Garland, a terribly underrated actress I think.
 
The Phone Call I didn't love A Single Man but was still impressed by it and yeah Firth should have gotten his Oscar for that performance.
 
Train Tracks It's the best W&G and that set piece is amazeballs.
 
The Train Pretty much the moment I realised Jesse and I would get along, stunning moment.
 
I have seen Raging Bull but I can't really remember much except the opening and Joe Pesci.
 
Moses Suppose - A lovely bit but I prefer other sections of the film but it's an amazing film all round really.
 
GWTW It has some weird soul sucking power in that whenever it's on if I start watching I end up watching it all even though I pretty much despise everything and everyone on screen.
 
Married Life Up gets better with each viewing for me and I still cry two/three times every time.
 
It Feels Like Christmas Caine's best performance of the last thirty years, fantastic film, fantastic song, prefer Chains.
 
OUAT The only Leone western I have time for and yet without Ennio Morricone's music I probably wouldn't care for it as much.

OUATIW is a bit rubbish, but it does have some good moments and that's one of them.

Up - Incredibly lovely. One of my favourite things in all of cinema.

GWTW - Yeah, fair enough.

Another great choice. The Man With Harmonica music in that scene is one of Morricone's very best pieces. Love the GWTW bit too.

See, that's something I quite like about GWTW - the two characters have some really, really unpleasant qualities about them. Scarlett's a rude, spoilt, selfish woman, yet you have to admire her determination to survive, whilst Rhett is a jerk with some dodgy views on women, but he seems to be the only one who understands her, and how awful/brilliant she can be.

I agree with you about how engaging it is though - there's something about the scale of it I get hooked on (perhaps just as an artifact of its time and that era of Hollywood).

11. Big Spender
Sweet Charity, 1969

Sweet Charity has some fantastic scenes, but this is one of the most perfectly choreographed scenes in movie musical history. The timing is just perfect. The costumes and lighting are spot on. The music is wonderful and that zoom out to the ashtray is amazing.

Watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iG3VfKlfDEk

Argh, for some reason the last two pictures have been huge - I've no idea why, as they're small until I post.
