Your Favorite Movie Scene

MichelleMichelle California
Keeping it short & sweet, what's your favorite movie scene(s)?  

For me it's hard to choose but these are some that I really love:  Jenny dies & Forrest talking to her at her gravesite beneath the tree; Andy playing the opera over the prison yard speakers; Harry finally realizing he's in love with Sally; "Play it, Sam...play As Time Goes By."; Duckie singing "Try a Little Tenderness"; "Do You Hear The People Sing" in Les Mis; and a few others.

    This can't be my true favorite, but it was the first that came to mind. Paul Rudd will never be better than he was in this scene, and I love how absurdly long it feels. Cracks me up every time.

    EDIT: Bummer. the youtube window isn't popping up. Anyways, if you don't feel like clicking it's the scene in Wet Hot American Summer where he has to clean up his plate after swiping it onto the floor and he's super huffy about it.

    The two that immediately come to mind are from the movie I tell everyone is my favourite, and the movie that is actually my favourite:

    1. The Danny Boy scene in Miller’s Crossing. 

    2. That whole scene on the plane in The Wedding Singer where Billy Idol and the flight attendant help block Julia’s sleazy boyfriend in so Robbie can get to her and sing about how he loves her.

    I’m also a sucker for pretty much any scene where people bust out singing.

    On the youtube vid's page, click 'share' then copy that shortened link they give you - then come back here & paste it into the comment window.  It's worked every time for me since I found out about that.

    I don't know if I can pick an all-time favorite scene but this scene from Pulp Fiction has always struck me as amazing:

    The Tyler Durden reveal was the 1st time I had my mind blown like that during a movie or TV show.

    Too many to pick one so I went with the first scene of a movie that I can remember ever making me cry. The funeral scene in My Girl.  :'(  That shit broke me in a way that I had never been broke before

    Action: Saving Private Ryan Omaha Beach

    but that’s like 30 minutes of the movie so if I need to cut it down to a shorter scene.

    The Patriot revenge ambush scene on the British caravan

    Drama: Field of Dreams Iowa is heaven. “Hey dad, you wanna play catch”

  • Kingpin when Woody Harrelson has his moment where he accepts he is responsible for a lot of his own bad luck - always gets me. 

    Harry Potter and Prisoner of Azkaban when he is flying over the lake on the bird-horse and his terror turns into whooping joy - makes me want to go do something exciting to get that feeling. 

    Those come to mind first but I’m sure there are others.

    I couldn’t think of one right away but on my drive home I thought of:

    -Copacabana tracking shot from Goodfellas. 

    -Ending of Good Will Hunting (son of a bitch stole my line)

    -Ending of Coco (ugly bawling)

    -There Will Be Blood when the rig catches on fire

    Will Ferrell hitting Jack Black in the face with a burrito, followed by Black kicking Baxter off a bridge never gets old for me :D

    This scene from So I Married An Axe Murderer has me crying with laughter every time I see it - like just now. The best part is Anthony La Paglia pissing himself laughing.

  • Maybe it’s because I just listened to a podcast about it, but the Rebekah Del Rio scene in Muholland Dr. is the first one that pops to mind.

    Whoahh yeah.  That was heavy. Saw it with my sister and my Dad in the theater and my sister was like “Dad cried”, which was amazing to both of us.

    Ok I really love feel good, solidarity stuff like the “Oh Captain my Captain” scene in Dead Poets Society and when all the football players turn in their jerseys in Rudy.  Stuff like that makes me well up with the feels.

    Oh, I love Dead Poets Society.  I was going to pick one of its scenes in my list of favorites but how do you pick just one?  "Oh Captain my Captain" is so powerful.  And then there's this one.  And also when Neil died. :cry:

  • Dead Poets came out when I was in high school and we watched it in our senior English class. It was one of those things where people kept quoting it all year, even in their graduation speeches.
