    Default Great Movie Moments

    What are some that stick out in your mind, that is worth watching a movie just for that moment?

    A few of mine:
    Pickpocket: hated the movie, but the last part where the girl visits the guy in prison with the barrier was something else.

    Empire Strikes Back: The Millennium Falcon gliding through the frozen waste after the chaos of the escape on Toth.

    Shane: "Shane, come back!... Bye Shane!"

    Amadeus: the audience reaction after the Commendatore scene.

    The Pianist: Brody playing the Chopin Ballade to the German soldier.

    The Medal Scene from "In the Name of the Father": Daniel-Day Lewis and Pete Postlethwaite. One of the very greatest scenes in all cinema. Day-Lewis is beyond phenomenal!! Both performances astonishing!!

    OMG, that scene from "The Pianist"!! Absolutely devastating. Thanks so much for reminding me of its power.

    Another glorious scene from cinema; "The Best Years of Our Lives" - Homer's homecoming. Homer is a double amputee and returns home from WW2 and its trauma, not able to put his arms around his girl, Wilma. Wyler doesn't resort to cheap sentimentality in this scene or in any of this film. Hugo Friedhofer's beautiful score adds to the poignancy of the scene.

    I have loved this film my whole life and every frame of it is precious to me; the cinematography of Gregg Toland and his velvet black and white palette. It just doesn't get any better!! (Toland was to die prematurely about 2 years after the film's completion. A real tragedy.)

    Those brave soldiers returning from the front and who experienced difficulty re-assimilating into society; they'd be just one of the many thousands of 'deplorables' in the USA if it were the present day - and that angers me beyond belief.

    This was, indeed, the greatest generation:

    How come I post 2 threads this year on greatest musical moments and nobody responds, but a movie thread starts overflowing. Okay people must not pay much attention to short musical moments.

    Lynch made a lot of truly memorable scenes, but that one is my favorite too.

    Alec Baldwin had a very powerful and memorable (altough depressing) scene in Glengarry Glen Ross:

    ^ That must have been the biggest prick performance. It was funny. 2nd prize: set of steak knives. 3rd prize: you're fired.
