    I'm not much a superhero fan, but I've been coming round to them thanks to Marvel's Agent Of SHIELD.

    Spoilers!!!!

    X Men First Class;

    - Taking out the Nazi's in Argentina. I particularly enjoy Fassbender's walk, as he enters the bar.

    - Magento and the missiles

    - Charles and Raven say goodbye

    (OK, I watched this recently, and I thought it was probably the best superhero movie, hence why my list is First Class heavy)


    X2;


    - Magento sucking the iron out of the security guard's body to escape his cell.

    The Dark Knight:

    - The opening shot of the preparations of the bank heist. Zimmer's score makes this.

    Superman The movie, for the time great visual trickery. Superman returns with lois to her apartment balcony, no cut. Camera pans to knock on her door Clark enters then when a befuddled Lois is wandering. Clarks posture completely changes removes glasses, brilliant acting from Reeve as he considers telling Lois he is Superman. Great scene.

    I know how it was done, but still impressive as hell for the time!

    Anything Rorschach does, really.


    Here's one of my all-time favorites:

    Yes, but in those prison scenes, Rorshach is more bad-ass than Eastwood in... anything.

    Except maybe The Unforgiven.

    'I agree with every word you said we are the future, but unfortunately you killed my mother. Now this is what we are going to do, i am going to count to three and i am going to move the coin...' Xmen First Class, people who have watched it know the scene. Still think First Class is the best of the series. Great movie, great scene.

    A personal wish, is to see Mathew Vaughn direct Fassbender as Bond!

    When Superman first appears and saves Lois Lane from the helicopter accident in Superman the Movie...gets me every time.

    When Eric Lensherr lays waste to the Nazis in the bar in Argentina in First Class.

    The scene with Eric in 'First Class' is so Bondian.

    Just finished watching it and also the documentarys, Vaughn deliberately modelled the film and magneto on Connerys and his earlier Bond films. Great extras on the bluray they have a bit of a Bond and John Barry love in, if you are going emulate, emulate the best and think they did very well in that regard. This film seems to improve as time passes.

    End credit titles, good homage to Maurice Binder certainly evokes memory of DN and FRWL. Echos of Saul Bass also.

    Probably greatest Superhero moment of all time, Christopher Reeve and his strength of character against adversity. Documentary dedicated to him called Heart of a hero is a fitting tribute.

    So many great moments here, and I agree with all of them. Most recent for me : Quicksilver. No spoiler here, you'll know the scene when you'll see it.

    But there's one moment nobody has discussed yet. A villain moment, featuring no less than Sir Christopher Lee. This one :



    And yes, that's his real voice. No dubbing for him, no sir.

    Wonder if any other films used Milton Keynes to double as a location for a major city, empathises how much trouble Quest for peace production was in.
  • I could say much of the original Superman and number 2, but the scene I love more than most is the battle between Supes and Zod, Ursa and Non on the streets of Metropolis. Very well done scene.....

    It's even better in the enhanced Donner Cut!

  • Definitely. Could watch it time and again....
  • edited June 2014 Posts: 6,432
    The Donner cut is great, love the shot of Superman flying through metropolis being pursued by Non the extra flying footage stands up well.

    Just watching Xmen 2 for first time on bluray, Nightcrawlers assault on the white house is awesome, presses rewind button.

    The Donner Cut is my favorite cut of Superman 2, save for the scene where Lois finds out that Clark is Superman. Falling on the fire is a lot better than the gun scene.

    I also like the Paris scene... it's why I own both versions & mix & match.

    I have both versions as well, and the Paris scene is pretty good. I wish we had an alternate version of the first film to make them closer to how they were originally intended.
