I’d go something like…
ET When the boys are being chased then they suddenly take flight on their bicycles.
Rocky “Adrian! Adrian!”
Star Wars 1 when they explode the Black Star
Lord of the Rings Frodo finally throws the ring into the pit of fire.
Neo from the Matrix is the One.
Your choices? I know it’s tough only picking 5 out of movie history.
I’d be keen to hear @Montezuma’s choices. He’s the movie buff around here isn’t he? Or am I confusing him with a different poster?
The ending of kill bill when she does the 5 point exploding heart techinique.
Also kill bill when one of the assassins hands the guy a suitcase full of money but also a black mamba in there. Hahahah that ■■■■ was hillarious. Some real.black humour.
This fight scene is pretty good (don’t watch if you’re sensitive to movie violence), super unrealistic, but good.
From the movie 300
Or as I like to say…me in the morning before my coffee…
Still think this is the greatest Romantic ending to a movie ever. An Officer and a Gentleman.
I actually still tear up every time I watch this clip!
I’m dating myself here, but my three favorites are all 80s flicks.
One has a mentally ill female protagonist, one a very eccentric dishwasher from a diner, and the other is just funny.
In Benny and Joon, when Mary Stuart Masterson’s character Joon is in the psych hospital, and Johnny Depp swings back and forth on a scaffold outside her window.
Same movie - when Johnny Depp’s character does his Charlie Chaplin skit in the diner.
Untamed Heart - so many, I love that movie. Marisa Tomei’s diner waitress character falls in love with Christian Slater as the dishwasher.
I love the quote at the ice rink especially, where Caroline tells Rosie Perez that she’s fallen in love with Adam. She says, he doesn’t make sense, I don’t make sense, together we make sense!
Oh yeah, in Leah Thompson’s movie Casual Sex when Andrew Dice Clay as the Jersey boy, Vin-man, shows up at her house for new year’s eve, carrying a puppy with a bow around its neck. He doesn’t have to tell her he loves her in words, it’s obvious he does, and she lets him into her apartment.
Another 80s movie called Reckless, Aidan Quinn and Daryl Hannah as a very unlikely couple. At the beginning of the movie, Johnny shows up at Tracy’s house to pick her up for a dance. He is carrying a black rose he’s been soaking in ink. She thinks him to be quite insane.
Just woke up from a two hour nap. Now I wanna revisit those three movies…wonder if I can buy them on Amazon Video…
Fair warning for people with sza…there’s a scene where Joon has a meltdown on a bus. I’ve prolly watched that movie 20 times over the years, but I always burst into tears at that part of the movie. I’ve had very public meltdowns just like that, so it triggers me.
Whenever I’m upset but my meds won’t let me cry, Chris tells me I should watch Benny and Joon…which gets bonus points for casting Aidan Quinn as Benny.
Most wholesome fun clip from the movie Big…
Yes! Most surely a trip down movie memory lane this thread is turning out to be for me.
I am partial to car chases.
Oh yeah, and my other favorite movie is the Full Monty, with Robert Carlisle and Mark Addy. Addy always cracks me up…and I like squishy men.
I still laugh out loud and I’ve seen that movie more than a dozen times.
Wow, I haven’t watched a movie of any kind in many years. Prolly since the first X-Men one…
Yes sir! You’re thinking of the right man.
Wow, so many to list, but I’ll think about a few and post here on this thread soon.
Off the top of my head though:
- The shower scene in Psycho
- The android death scene in Blade Runner
- The refusal of Falstaff by the king in Chimes at Midnight
- The zombie getting it’s head blown off in Dawn of the Dead.
I like the scene in ‘the thing’ where they are all gathered and are testing blood to find the alien
