Favorite movie moments

by Noonie » Jan 24th, '16, 05:58

I just finished watching the Lord of the Rings trilogy, again, and there are so many great moments. Though my favourite is at the end of the third movie, after Aragorn is made king, the hobbits bow to him, and then everyone kneels down to the hobbits. It's a really great finish.

Oh i have too many.. but I'll start with the one.

Silence of the Lambs - Buffaloo Bill is hanging out in his basement with some music and his moth collection. Then he figures he should start his procedure so he goes to the edge of his well to lower some skin cream in a a basket.

I am known to quote and misquote and paraphrase numerous favorite movie and TV show moments. One fave I use and used in my bicycle road rage incident when I decided to block the passage of the perp.

I recalled the LotR Fellowship of the Ring scene with Gandalf facing the demonic and huge Balrog. Gandalf slammed his staff down and proclaimed, "You shall not pass!"

Similarly, I picked up my bike, turned it perpendicular to the road blocking the big truck and demonic driver, and in my head proclaimed, "You shall not pass!"

:roll: :shock: 8)

Not to resurrect an old thread, but a few of my all-time favorite moments are as follows:

Arsenic and Old Lace:
The moment that Mortimer (Grant), realizes just what his aunts are telling him they have been doing is just a classic example of naive to crestfallen in an instant.

Die Hard:
Hanz Gruber's expression as he gets his. Supposedly, they didn't finish the "3 count" before dropping the late, great Rickman and his expression was a true surprise.

Dawn of the Dead ('78):
When Roger realizes the futility of survival.

Platoon:
In a film full of great moments, Dafoe's last scene is a shining example of emotionally loaded body language.

Return of the Living Dead Part 1/2:
"Like this job?!"
and
"Get the d*** screwdriver out of my head." :lol:

There are much more, but these always come to mind.

scene from my favorite movie is
"Blade Runner" on the roof Harrison Ford and Rutger Hauer,
and the symbolism of the dove in the rain

good luck :wink:

I see your scene and raise you the defeatist, and almost war-like zen that overcame our friendly toys during the furnace scene in Toy Story 3. I know it is an animated scene, but that 3 minutes of CGI conveyed panic, fighting for survival, realization, acceptance, and hope.

SPOILERS

Kikuchiyo's death scene in Akira Kurosawa's classic Seven Samurai. The entire character's arc leads to his final redeeming moment and then the scene happens and you are forced to deal with the duality of your feelings. It is like losing a kid brother after spending 2.5 hours rolling your eyes at his antics.

I do not see it as a defeat;
if not as hope and salvation
let us not forget the saving hand in a free fall.
To all this if we add your soundtrack of Tubular bells
increases its meaning.
The pigeon that already comments, gives me sensation of peace.

It's my way of interpreting what I felt at the time.

I was referring to the scene in which Woody comes to the realization that they are all going to perish and, aside from pure luck, there is no way to win and instead, they all accept their fate because at least they will face it together.

good night Steve

sometimes it is complex to perceive what really
the author tries to transmit, and what the receiver
feels or interprets.

If I say red we imagine a red, but
how many red ones exist and each one imagines
one in the extensive color palette.

I totally agree on that frame
that you see, but I was referring to the scene
that manifesto.

Akira Kurosawa a genius.

A pleasure to be able to talk about movies, Steve.

Long time ago I expanded my film library with
"Stalker" by Andréi Tarkovski;
I must say that the first time I saw her
I left a good feeling, and I had to
raise meaning in some scenes
with philosophical power.
I called and impacted a scene with his character
on a river at the same time in the course of a black dog.
