-Once Upon a Time in the West: the scene where the girl says "I hope you'll come back someday" Bronson replies with "Someday" then exits the house and that really sad song in the background just hightens the emotion, really nice ending.

-The Magnificent Seven: The scene where they meet the bandits for the first time and Yul Brynner says "Solving your problems isn't our line" then Steve Mcqueen says "We deal in lead, friend."

-Gladiator: Maximus' identity reveal to Commodus. Nuff said.

-Gladiator: Maximus get's on the horse acting as General and all the men start acting like soldiers to survive with the great music in the background playing.

-Gladiator: Maximus fights Tigras of Gaul in the colloseum.

-Minority Report: Tom Cruise is in the mall and the girl tells him to do a bunch of crazy stuff that actually ends up helping them escape.

-The Crow: The whole movie.

-Troy: Achilles and Hector fight.

This scene is just brilliant from “A few good men"

This court room speech from Jack Nicholson.
You can't handle the truth!


Son, we live in a world that has walls.
And those walls have to be guarded by men
with guns. Who's gonna do it? You? You,
Lt. Weinberg? I have a greater
responsibility than you can possibly
fathom. You weep for Santiago and you
curse the marines. You have that luxury.
You have the luxury of not knowing what I
know: That Santiago's death, while tragic,
probably saved lives. And my existence,
while grotesque and incomprehensible to
you, saves lives.
You don't want the truth. Because deep
down, in places you don't talk about at
parties, you want me on that wall. You me
there
We use words like honor, code,
loyalty...we use these words as the
backbone to a life spent defending
something. You use 'em as a punchline.
I have neither the time nor the
inclination to explain myself to a man who
rises and sleeps under the blanket of the
very freedom I provide, then questions the
manner in which I provide it. I'd prefer
you just said thank you and went on your
way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a
weapon and stand a post. Either way, I
don't give a damn what you think you're
entitled to.
Edit, upon reflection other classic scenes include.

Ripley rescues the marines, "Aliens"
The opening scene to “Full Metal jacket” where the Drill Sergeant intrudes himself to the new recruits.
The night club scene with Joe Pesci in “Goodfellas”...."Am I here to amuse you?”
Steve Martin in "Trains, Planes and Automobiles" firing into the car rental receptionist.

Jurassic Park - kitchen.

The Truman Show, when he tries to escape by car, and just the whole ending sequence including the storm and the wall.

The Matrix - hell, just about every scene is awesome.

Gladiator beginning battle.

El Mariachi - the final showdown where they all walk away.

28 Days Later - Frank's death. It was so unexpectedly emotional.

Apocalypse Now beach attack. DA DA DA DAAAAAAA DAAAAAAA

Alien 3 - the very end, where everything gets locked up, and the very very beginning. The rest was crap.

A Bridge Too Far - Cut off from the rest of the forces. pinned down by artillery fire, the wounded American and British infantry sit in wait for death, singing the hymn ''Abide With Me'' as German infantry soldiers cross the small river, rifles in hand. Really moved me.

umm. I'll add later.

Probably a bunch of spoilers here and there.

Heat - The bank scene and the shootout on the streets.

Saving Private Ryan - The whole D-Day landing scene, when they encounter the German SdKfz 251 halftrack and when Pvt. Jackson snipe Germans from the church.

Full Metal Jacket (my favourite movie ever btw :)) - Too many scenes to include here, but here are some: When Hartman introduces himself in the beginning, when Pyle kills Hartman and himself, when the guys talk to the news reporter with ‘Surfin’ Bird’ playing in the background, when they encounter the Vietnamese sniper in the building and the whole ‘Shoot me!’ scene.

The Matrix - The whole lobby scene and when Neo, a.k.a. Mr. Anderson, gets shot in the chest by Agent Smith.

Bullitt - The classic car chasing, God I love that part of the movie.

The Thing- When Norris gets mutilated, the whole dog scene and when MacReady kills the beast at the end of the movie.

Marathon Man - The torture scene, when Hess visits the Jewish part of the city and when Hoffman gets captured.

Star Wars Episode I - The whole pod race and when Obi and Qui-Gon battles Darth Maul.

The Untouchables - The intro with the cool music, when Jim gets killed in his apartment, when Frank gets thrown out from the rooftop by Ness and the elevator scene (very sad scene imo).

Boondock Saints

Where the 1st cop (can't remember his name) is trying to explain what happened to the 2 dead guys.

"So there's this HUGE friggin guy, that sits on this other guy.....
Where's he goin'? No-where. Where you goin'? NO-WHEEERRREEE?" etc

Rocko, after he kills some guys and gets back to his house and his mates & missus are there

"YOU! Shut your f**ken mouth. I cant buy a pack of ciggarettes without running into ten guys you've f**ked."

Classic stuff

The first scene of Texas Chainsaw Massacre(the original)--just the noise of a grave being exhumed then the flashes of a camera and the gradual reveal of the bones on the marker. Truly disturbing.

Last scene of Texas Chainsaw Massacre(the original)--a crazed Leatherface dancing a waltz of despair with his one true love, his chainsaw. Extremely disturbing then it just cuts abruptly to black. So so effective. The whole movie really unnerves the viewer from beginning to end.

Oh, one of my favorite movies!

I thought another good scene in it was where he killed the kid after looking for him for a long time - it was just disturbing

Also, the rape scene in there

And the last scene, the very end, wonderfully done

They put out the Criterion Collection version, and I took French for almost 10 years before getting into college, besides, I love subtitled stuff

Oh, that and the fact that the movie is awesome

The bit in One Hour Photo where he goes into their house.

And the groans in the cinema after it. :D

The ending to Taxi Driver is always a favourite as well. ;)

Have you read the book Stern? :)

I have a ton of these too, but fresh in my mind (from watching too much TV) are in both Spider-man movies, at the end, when you see Spidey swinging along to a grand orchastral score. That was something to behold in the cinema.

Indeed. This was one of the most powerful and thought-provoking books I have ever read. The movie was pretty good, but the copy I watched was really poor quality. I'd like to see it restored for DVD someday soon, esp. given the state of the world today....

Also, the final scene from Carpenter's The Thing--an incredibly cool way to end it.

Well, let's see here, there's quite a few:

Tae Guk Gi:
-When they are first sent to the trenches. The younger brother doesn't know what's going on, and the older brother watches out for him.
-The scene involving a rock and the generals head.
-The end of the movie... when he's an old man.... oh man.

12 Monkeys:
-When he is sent back to World War 1.
-The ending scene when she is frantically searching for his younger self in the crowd.

Boondock Saints:
-When Roc is on the phone and hangs up. "Catch you on the flip side." He just stepped into a "Zone." His zone. And the following scene is just godlike to me. When he walks up to the guys sitting down, he pulls his coat out, and shoots one of them through it. And then goes over to the bartender. "FUNNY! FUNNY! FUNNY!"

Leon: The Professional:
-Any scene involving Leon's plant, or Leon drinking milk.
-When they pronounce their love to eachother. It's kind of sick, but they're both ****ed up people. So it somehow makes me feel happy for them.
-Just how good Leon is at what he does...

Queen of the Damned:
-The whole rock concert scene.

Gladiator:
-His death.

Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels:
-The shootout where just about everyone is killed.
-"That was the Bren gun!" - I laughed for weeks at that.
-When Soap is attempting to dump the shotguns while everyone else if frantically trying to cell him.

El Mariachi:
-The chase scene in which the Mariachi guns down a few of his chasers.

I'll post more later.
