    Favourite Scenes in Movies

    One of my favourites: the gunfight saloon scene in Unforgiven, thunder rumbling, accounts to be settled, and those immortal lines (at 6:49):

    Hackman: I don't deserve this. To die like this. I was building a house.

    Eastwood: Deserve's got nothing to do with it.

    Hackman: I'll see you in Hell, William Munney.

    Eastwood: Yeah.

    *shotgun blast*


    The clip is rather dark, boost the contrast and brightness!

    I was able to find the clip by simply typing "Unforgiven" into Google Video.

    The big shootout it Heat, the first time i saw it was in the cinema the combination of big screen loud surround sound and the action going on gave me goose pimples!
    Seen it a few times since but not for a while, i'll have to dig it out.
    Well, luckily I didn't have any tortoises on me at the time...

    For car chases I'll have to kick it old school and go with Steve McQueen in Bullet.

    This one just came to mind, a favourite of my mother's (a piano teacher) and me, her long-lapsed pupil.

    It's totally in Swedish (I think), no subtitles but none needed as everything springs from the faces of these superb actors.

    Ingrid Bergman and Liv Ullmann in Ingmar Bergman's Autumn Sonata, the famous scene of mother/daughter at the piano:



    Again, quite easy to find.

    Bladerunner. The scene at the end with Deckard and Batty on the roof in the rain.

    "I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die."

    (Apparently Rutger Hauer improvised those lines rather than use the scripted ones)

    I've been meaning to start this topic for months!

    Taxi Driver - The shoot out scene and back tracking of shot showing the aftermath of his killing spree. Scorcesse truly is one of the greatest.

    Le Femme Nikita - Her first hit at the restaurant.

    True Romance - Drexl's apartment scene. And let's not forget Hopper and Walken having a chat over a chesterfield, magnificent.

    Casino - Introduction of Sharon Stone as she walks away from the table and catches the eye of Sam. She plays it to absolute perfection.

    Jaws - Quint telling the Indianapolis story.

    Return of the Jedi - Luke Skywalker entering Jabba's home, looking cool in black, a trained jedi.

    Star Wars - Han shoots Greedo. But not anymore George Lucas you bastard! Fancy making a scene that works so perfectly and then not understanding why it was so cool and changing it later.

    Miller's Crossing - Albert Finney taking care of business with a couple of guns and a cigar.

    The Shawshank Redemption: When DuFrane locks the door and plays the Italian opera for the whole prison, and every prisoner stops what he's doing to listen.

    The Empire Strikes Back -- When Luke leaves the Degobah system, as his X-wing lifts up and lights Yodas face in red and then white. Obi-Wan says "That boy is our last hope." And Yoda replies "No.....there is another."

    Pulp Fiction - the very last scene, when Jules has a great conversation with Tim Roth, is one of the best written scenes I've ever seen on film. And I love Vincent's line: "Jules, if you give that fucking nimrod $1500, I'm going to shoot him out of general principle!"

    The Big Lebowski - When The Dude trips out and has that great dream that begins with him dancing (with a toolbelt on) to Kenny Loggins' "My Condition".

    The Godfather, part II - The sequence where DeNiro is chasing the guy in the white suit (forget his name). The camera shoots from above, so you are looking down at DeNiro (who running on the roofs of buildings) who is looking down at the guy he eventually kills.
    "Fuck off. And take your stupid cult with you."

    -Scarlett Johansson to Tom Cruise

    Leon - The sniper scene on the roof

    Lawn Dogs - Last part where the man is running away and the story of the witch is being spoken over the top.

    Pariah - The rape at the start is one of the more traumatisng parts I have watched.

    Requiem for a Dream - Last 10 minutes where the images are flashed at you - two girls going ass to ass, mans arm being cut off, old lady getting electro shock therapy. It's like being slapped across the face watching it.

    Well let's keep the theme with another Ridley Scott then.

    Aliens - Ripley has just found Newt and stumbled into the Queen Aliens lair, surrounded by eggs and with not many bullets left, just a few grenades and a trusty flame thrower. More Aliens creep in and she gives an egg or two a blast of heat to show she means business, the Queen Alien signals the soldier Aliens to back off and Ripley starts slowly backing away, a stalemate situation when she see's an egg start to open. The slight tilt of her head just says 'fuck you then' and she just starts burning the place down. Classic!

    And of course the later scene when she walks out in that Hydraulic suit to confront the Queen Alien "Get away from her you bitch!".

    ^ Unfortunately it was James Cameron, not Ridley Scott. Good movie though.

    The scene at the end of "The Usual Suspects", just after the detective has released Kevin Spacey and he's sitting on the edge of his desk looking at the wall behind the desk and slowly he realises how he's been conned.

    I never saw that twist coming.

    Not a film, but the scene in the Sopranos where Tony, Silvio, Pauly take big Pussy out on the yacht under the pretense Tony wants to buy it. They then confront him with his treason, and then waste him in a flury of gunfire.

    Scorcese: the tracking steadicam in Goodfellas following Ray Liotta's character and his future-wife on their first date out the car, through the back door, people making out, cooks darting to and fro, a rack of stolen furs gliding past, a nightclub table hastily assembled as the Maitre d' guides them to their table and Henny Youngman is up there and the camera holds on his face as he launches into some corny vaudeville joke (or was it Bobby Vinton?) All in one shot.

    I found it!



    details probably wrong...

    The scene in Voyage of Hope, a German film about Turkish immigrants, where the father is caught in a Swiss pass in deep snow with his dying son. Can still recall the scene vividly. Never need to see the movie again. Won an Academy Award.

    King Kong (original or remake) when Kong falls off the tower in the end.

    Great movie where Kong starts as a villain and dies a hero. The humans start as hereos and end as villains.
