The opening of Pulp Fiction, where they decide to rob the restaurant, is one of my favourite openings to any film. Also love the bit afterwards where we're introduced to Jackson and Travolta.
The final chase in Mad Max 2 is probably my favourite car chase in any film. Fantastic stuff and all done for real, none of this CGI bollocks.
Love Rambo's speech at the end of First Blood (who are they to protest me?!, etc), and the "what I want" speech at the end of First Blood part 2.
Casino Royale's PTS is also master class cinema, from the fade in to the gunbarrel it is cinematic perfection. "Yes. Considerably."
The baptism scene in The Godfather, however, is probably my favourite scene in a movie ever. The murders of the rival bosses intercut with Michael standing as godfather to Connie's son is... well... it's beautiful despite how brutal a scene it is.
I agree, the ending is so touching, and it ends perfectly, but part of me wishes that:
2-James Bond's entrace into the embassy in pursuit of Mollaka in CR. I was blowned away by the action.
3-Charlie Chaplin's City Lights final scene when the "Blind Girl" realized her benefactor was a tramp.
4-Thaddeus Stevens's speech in Congress masterfully played by Tommy Lee Jones, supporting the 13th amendment from the "Lincoln" movie. Powerfulll stuff.
5-Peter Jackson's version of King Kong's fight versus 3 T-Rex, AWESOME!
Yeap, that's the one. Even though the parodies are funny, I like the one about Ben Affleck being offered the role of Batman, Gantz's original performance still rules.
The parody with someone farting (childish, I know) was hilarious. Had me crying.
I've seen some interviews of Gantz, they're really interesting to watch and hear him speak on playing Hitler. I have to get around to watching it soon.
My favorite scene in ANY movie is From Russia With Love
"She has a very pretty mouth"
The meme is stupid, but believe me; that film does NOT in any way make light of Hitler.
This film is perfect in every way, but my personal favorites that always get me are:
The speech Chuckie gives to Will near the end at the construction site.
The "It's Not Your Fault" scene
And finally, when
Truly one of the very best and most moving films I have ever had the pleasure to see.
This whole film is perfect, but again, my favorites are these:
Of all the gin joints/flashbacks
Laszlo leads in the singing of La Marseillaise
The ending sequence, obviously.
The Nolan Batman Trilogy-
Again, flawless films, but my favorites are:
Bruce's confrontation with Falcone (BB)
Bruce trains with the League (BB)
Batman tries to stop Ra's plot (the entire climax, basically; BB)
Fox says "Didn't you get the memo" (BB)
The bank robbery (TDK)
Anything Heath/Joker does (TDK)
Batman takes on the goons and SWAT team in the Pruitt building (TDK)
Selina fakes being scared in the bar (TDKR)
Alfred says goodbye (TDKR)
Batman gets broken (TDKR)
Bruce escapes the pit (TDKR)
Batman saves the day (TDKR)
The entire ending; absolutely masterful filmmaking (TDKR)
I'll post more when I have the time.
2001-The space tunnel
SIN CITY-Marv willing to give his life
DR STRANGELOVE-the bomb ride
BRAM STOKERS DRACULA- the first encounter with the count
ANGEL HEART-Harry finding out who he is
I think Marv is my favorite character of 'Sin City.' He pretty much spends a night in Hell just to avenge this one woman who gave him a second of her time. He's a great character.
Storming Normandy - Saving Private Ryan
Following the bullet - Lord of War (opening credits)
Graveyard ending - The Good, the Bad, the Ugly
Fight scene in the corridor with a hammer - Oldboy
Escaping building in front of silent military with world's only baby - Children of Men
"You wanna **** with me? Okay. You wanna play rough? Okay. Say hello to my little friend!" - Scarface
Al Pacino and Robert De Niro at the restaurant - Heat
Nightclub shootout - Collateral
I tried to stay at 1 scene per movie. but yes, definately, ending of 'Oldboy' is simple amazing! for 'Heat' I would add the downtown L.A. shooting.
That's probably my favourite film ending ever.
That scene really is something special. I love it so much.
I'd like to add the scene from Charlie Chaplin's "The Great Dictator" when a Hinkel's speech over the radio empties the Ghetto's street. Absolutly incredible!
I once recorded that speech on a tape recorder in the 1980's and made my teammates (hockey players) listen to it in the car going to the arena and in the dressing room right before the game. Great motivation tool!
Good choices there. As good as the end Scarface scene is, I think my favorite is when Lopez and Burstein go bye-bye
Lopez- "Please don't kill me!"
Montana- "I ain't gonna kill you. Manolo! Choot that piece of chit!"
And to Burstein- "So long Mel. Maybe you can get yourself one of those first class tickets to the resurrection".
I got the DVD anniversary collectors edition, 30 years later it's still awesome :)
Everything or Nothing: The Untold Story of 007: one of the best documentaries I've ever seen and which unfortunately I don't have in my collection. Two scenes were so emotionally stunning I include them, if you allow me, as some of my favorite cinematic moments:
- When Terrence Young announces the death of Ian Fleming, having "Wine with Stacy" played on the background.
- Cubby and Connery last conversation.
Geez, I love that movie.
I had a Film Debate Thread that was quite unpopular, yet we touched on the ending of this a little bit. Gotta love how fans and ambiguity mix, it's always entertaining.
One of the things that made 'Inception' so fantastic for me was that I instantly wanted to watch it again after seeing it in theaters. So much you'll miss or not pick up on or just completely misunderstand until you go back into it, knowing what happens while picking up missing hints and clues along the way.
The Schindler's speech and the Normandy scene in Saving Private Ryan and 2 excellents choices!
"You remember me? I told you I'd find you."
BOOM. Flips the table and slaughters everyone.
