I was big into Hong Kong cinema, what can I say. 

 

Notice that there is a narrative of overcoming your fear and transformation, more pronounced in the first clip from Fist of Legend. It's basically 'use the force Luke' but better. 

 

The gang soldier from Hard Boiled who looks like James Brown is the coolest guy ever.

My favorite movie is The Outlaw Josey Wales. The best scene is the last one:

Can't find a clip from my favorite film atm, so I'll give you a couple scenes from CHARADE (1963), one of my favorites instead:

we got too many "favorite" movies, which change from time to time, and we got more than a few favorite scenes.

 

kurosawa's ran has possible our favorite movie battle scene, but am only providing a short clip.

 

harry tuttle's death scene from brazil is a favorite, but is few decent quality clips online.

 

"let's go home" scene from the searchers is particular powerful, but is a culmination moment and works less well solo.  first time we saw, we didn't know if john wayne were gonna kill her or not. 

 

apocalypse now is having a few scenes which we admire. the colonel kilgore scene is particular noteworthy for Gromnir as it is a scene which could be done as part o' a play, with duval monologuing, but the scope is only possible 'cause o' movie medium. 

 

on the waterfront is a top ten movie for us and has a couple top ten scenes as well.  most famous is

 

 

 

but perhaps our favorite

 

 

karl malden never gets enough credit for his contribution to on the waterfront.

 

etc.

 

too many.

 

HA! Good Fun!

 

edit: better quality tuttle demise added.  for those unfamiliar with brazil, the earlier tuttle scene is kinda essential.

My all-time favorite film is 2001: A Space Odyssey, and I reckon the scenes that have stuck with me the most over time are either any of the ones involving the monolith, or the sequence dealing with HAL9000's deactivation. Some other favorites are the likes of The Hour-Glass Sanatorium by Wojciech Has, from which I'd likely call out the morning prayer sequence as one of the film's highlights, and Shohei Imamura's Black Rain, from which I'd bring up two scenes, one involving the protagonist's wife seeing their daughter remove tufts of hair from her head as cause of radiation and so on, and a scene where the neighbour's monologue about PTSD seamlessly blends into another traumatic episode as seen through his perspective. Brazil is yet another and I agree with Gromnir regarding Tuttle's death, very evocative.

 

Here's my full top 100, for anyone interested: https://rateyourmusi.../top-100-films/

 

Finally I would also mention one of my favorite film sequences of all time, being the ballet from The Red Shoes. Absolutely magnificent:

Apocalypse Now did better service to it's source material than a lot of movies that are based on books. I enjoyed Conrad's  "The Heart of Darkness" but I like Apocalypse Now better. The Outlaw Josey Wales did too. That was lighting in a bottle for Forrest Carter. That novel (it was called "Gone to Texas" not Outlaw Josey Wales) was the only good thing he wrote. The rest was trash.

Don't really have a singular "fave movie" (closest I'd get to is a Top 50 list maybe). Most of my fave film scenes would likely be action/combat or dance/musical related, and not always in actual fave movies ofc. One could search YT and post some of them all day long. Choreography, effects (whether non-CGI or CGI), battle "atmosphere" and emotions, general motion (human motion is one reason I like sports as well), I just love that kind of stuff.

 

Because I remember sitting in the theater and just going "FYEAH!" when the moment arrived. Plus at the time I didn't know what the 2nd terminator was about and the reveal was "wtf, awesome." (it was a lot easier to avoid spoiling oneself before seeing the movie, back then)

 

Technically a movie, although the mini-series version is what I watch. Overall the film/series is overlong/long-winded with an overwrought soundtrack etc - but Jeff Daniels was awesome as Joshua Chamberlain (Sam Elliot was great too). Probably not very moving/interesting without context/seeing the whole section tho.

Probably not as fancy or sophisticated as these other fellows here, but very personal to me:

"Welcome to Jurassic Park."

I was five years old when I saw it in theatres and I 100% believed it was real. It was majesty on a level that nothing in film has ever come close to for me, and very few things in real life either tbh.



Edit: Changed the link. Hey YouTube, when I clicked "copy link" what on earth made you think I meant the link to the ad your sorry arse was playing?

My own favourite Apocalypse Now scenes are typically the ones that are the most visually far-removed from reality, such as when Willard kills Kurtz and of course the Do Lung Bridge scene:

 

 

While the action scenes of Heat are admittedly some of the best in cinema, I'm very much partial to the more dialogue-heavy portions:

 

 

The final scene of the Thing is a near pitch perfect combination of scoring, cinematography, and terror-inducing dread:

And of course this classic horror scene which cemented my love for the series (or at least the two good ones and one alright Assembly Cut):

Anything with Al Pacino, once he opens his gob, oratorical gold issues forth.

Too many scenes to choose from, this choice is as arbitrary as it gets, I could pull ten scenes from nearly every movie he has made. :)

Cheating a bit since it's not from a movie but I'd say one of the most hilarious scenes on TV:

Excellent choice! Robert Shaw absolutely nailed that scene!

You may find this interesting/touching, Richard Dreyfuss meets Robert Shaw's great granddaughter on Irish TV.
