    Smile Your favourite movie scenes

    With or without music.

    Let's start this off lightly (inspired by Matrix thread)...

    "The Matrix" (1999) -- 'Construct' Scenes

    The Last Samurai: A Small Measure of Peace by old Zimmer.

    Metropolis is full of favorite scenes. In this one it shows the main character having a breakdown, hallucinating about a boiler room turning into a slaughterhouse. The score is perfect.

    In a movie with a classic score, the best scene starts with just Robert Shaw and the creaking of the boat before the music quietly creeps in.

    Jaws

    Talos the bronze statue coming alive in Jason & The Argonauts. Used to scare me to bits when I was younger.

    The airport 'detector wand' scene in This Is Spinal Tap (although I could choose at least half a dozen from this classic).

    Lon Chaney as the Phantom of the Opera having his mask removed.

    The graveyard dream sequence in Fiddler on the Roof.

    The cranking up of the tension during the Mexican standoff in The Good, the Bad & the Ugly.

    Two of my favorite scenes involve Peter Lorre... The monologue at the end of M...



    ...and the killer revealing himself at the end of Stranger on the Third Floor.



    Lorre was a spectacular actor... Charlie Chaplin called him the "world's greatest actor", which is high praise coming from him! His perfectly modulated performances have a million insightful details that put the dialogue across vividly. There are no actors like this around today.

    Just seeing Ana Karina is enjoyable on its own.
