How do!

Nice and easy topic. I want you to share with all of Dakka your favourite movie scenes. And to tell each other why you love them.

Ideally via YouTube links. Please don’t embed, as it causes loading delays. I mean, I’ve got really good internet, but not everyone does. Be considerate

As ever, I’ll kick off. CONTENT WARNING - serious violence and some swearing. NSFW.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IQJH-zUYOoc

From Dredd, the 2012 movie. And it’s a scene which just perfectly encapsulates Dredd as a character. His voice is level. His pitch absolutely stone cold perfect. It’s a Judge, threatening someone who held an entire Mega-Block under fear of violence. There is zero doubt in his voice. His conviction (heh) is absolute. He is coming for Mama. It makes him live up to the adage of ‘Justice has to be seen’

The film itself gives far greater context, but I really am looking for fellow dakkanauts to share scenes which stand on their own

The final fight scene in Logan, he's spent the whole movie telling Laura that comic book heroics are codswellox but when push comes to shove he pops the blades to do the right thing one last time in the Wolverine fight we've been waiting nearly 20 years and a fair few duff movies for, thats how you end a saga

Ripley vs Queen Alien - Aliens 1986 just a great finale to a favorite flick

https://youtu.be/DqA8Z5gjNWw

Enterprise vs Reliant, Star Trek II 1982 - people cheered in the audience when Kirk turns the tables on Khan - was amazing seeing in person at 13 years old - still to this day I don't think I have seen a movie with a more emotional and absorbed crowd

These are my two favorite scenes of all times:

- The Good, The Bad, The Ugly: Tuco searches for the grave in which is buried the treasure, with The Ecstasy of Gold that accompanies him (Ennio Morricone RIP).

- Inglorious Basterds: the entire sequence at the pub, when some of the bastards are meeting the spy while a group of drunk nazi soldiers is celebrating one of them becoming a father and an SS officer steps in to join the fun. Just amazing, I've watched it like 20 times.

and it's probably Tears in Rain for me, it really encapsulates the whole point of the film, and that Roy's speech was reputedly improvised (true or not) only makes it all the more impressive

I howled with laughter when I saw it in the theatre... I was the only one that did.

Two from Fight Club...

Spoiler:

The scene where Norton beats himself up in his boss’ office, ending with, “We now had corporate sponsorship.”

Also, younger me had quite the thing for Ms Bonham-Carter, and the scene where things are in slow-mo? Quite the treat. “I haven’t been f’d like that since grade school.” What a character-appropriate thing to say. “Yeesh!”


Ending on something a little more positive, from Dogma. Starts at 0:45, “Take a good idea, and building a belief structure... better to have ideas...”

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=fz3jAMQRr5k

This scene had a deeply profound impact on my life and view of the universe. Accepting that my beliefs *could be wrong*, being based on imperfect information made me a better person in so many ways.

Dang, Ecstasy of Gold was nicked on me. Well, I'll say it's because the quick cuts, spinning camera, Eli Wallach's mad dash in circles and swivelling eyeballs, the music and singing that descends into jangling chaos, all combine into a kind of assault on the senses. You're swept along with with Tuco's elated joy and frantic, fearful obsession.

That Dredd speech is a keeper, too.

The Tyrannosaurus attack in Jurassic Park.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kd23HJohFHo
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rDPruCq00wA

There had been computer effects in films before this, let alone scenes before this; but in deft combination with state-of-the-art animatronics (the state-of-the-art animatronics kinda got forgotten amid the hype) this sequence showed what the new medium could do and I'd say ushered in the modern period of film effects. Not too hyperbolic to say that?
Not to mention the situation. Stuck in the dark, in the rain, on a remote island, with no power, miles from habitation, and this titanic overwhelming predator beyond anything that anyone has experienced almost casually steps through the useless manmade barrier onto the road among them. The scene neatly toys with the old 'only show glimpses of your monster' rule in the buildup, but quickly abandons that because boy howdy, you gotta see this thing. It demands to be seen. The Tyrannosaur dominates everything there in the way the effects dominate the scene. Nothing's safe from it, not even behind the protective shells of the vehicles, and only sheer chance and one guy's guesses allow any of them to survive.

I'd say it also ushered in the trope of almost every CGI monster bending to the ground and roaring for no reason, but that last roar is something more than 'gosh aren't I scary'. That's territorial, and directed to the audience watching the film as well as the island vicinity. "Things have changed. All this is mine now."

You mean the lawyer sent to investigate the tragic death of a worker due to the massive health and safety failings of a crazy old man more concerned with spectacle than public safety? I find it very odd these days that he’s essentially cast as the villain...

I don’t know whether it really counts as a “scene”, but the opening 26 minutes of Saving Private Ryan is an amazing piece of cinema.

The funny thing is that I never understood why he was the "bad guy" in that movie either.

I guess its the stigma on lawyers. They're typically considered of low ethical character in pop culture... which like many stereotypes, may relate a sense of truth.

Absolutely this - especially #1 and the look on the orc leader's crooked face when he sees the wall of cavalry descending down on him - knowing the result.

I personally think the moment when the antagonist sees their plot foiled and the triumphant realization of good over evil, is missed by many directors. One scene that comes to mind is not really getting the full impact of Emperor Palpatine seeing his vision crumble - he only gets tossed down the chute by a destroyed Vader... I really wanted to see the look on his over-confident, repugnant face knowing YOU HAVE LOST!

So many but I'll put this one in




You have to remember this was the first top end CGI we had ever really seen on this scale in a film. Until this very moment dinosaurs in films were stop motion, plastic, oversized enlarged iguanas etc.. And that's if the film let you see them; JP teases us very early with the raptor transporting scene where all we see is a bit of an eye and face and screams from inside. Which was, again, often all we ever saw - dark scenes and hidden creatures to hide the fact that it was a guy in a suit.

So this scene blew so many of us away - huge, bright - detailed - moving. Sure we know its not real but it was the first big CGI step. In many ways vastly superior to when Avatar was trying to wow us by being the next step in visual detail with CGI.



And heck this scene deserves a mention:




And this one. Very few films and directors can carry off over 5 mins of so little happening and yet hold the audience watching for that whole duration. Even today I find that his films I can't have on as "background noise". You're either watching it or there's no point putting it on.

Another one.

Now. This is slightly different as in terms of cinematography, it’s probably not all that great. But....in the context of the film?

Dutch’s squad assaulting the enemy base in Predator. Yes, it’s quite silly and has some awful one liners. But it definitely sets up that each and every member of Dutch’s team is a highly trained bad bottomed killer. They know their onions, and are not to be trifled with.

So when The Predator starts toying with them? We know how deadly it is. That scene is everything to that film. And I know it’s daft, and probably a demonstration of awful military tactics....but I loves it!

He basically starts out continually threatening to shut everything down over one death; then he sees the potential money. In short he's sort of blackmailing to get his own way which is likely the way some ends of the company want - a higher profit margin.

It should be noted that deaths in animalcare as a result of animal action do happen. Only in cases where the issue is the entire site are places fully shut down. More typically the animal that caused the incident is isolated/destroyed and the keepers have new systems setup to ensure the accident does not happen again. A manager/head keeper/overseer etc.. might get removed, but rarely would they just shut it all down forever. So for him to be charging in threatening closing the entire project is quite extreme. In fact when you consider the nature of the creatures they are breeding its actually quite amazing that they had so few deaths/serious injuries that they did. It's likely statistically more dangerous to keep a herd of zebras than the entire Jurassic Park - until someone sabotaged the entire security network

As to the lawyer in JP, I found that scene impossible to believe.

I mean, cloning dinosaurs, sure, scientific issue, technical matters, I could accept it.

But a dinosaur eating a lawyer and not immediately becoming violently ill? No way.

As to a scene I thought was epic, Enterprise's final moments in star trek 3 really hit me.

For me I love a good intro to a movie. So naturally my 2 of my favorite scenes are intros. Music is also an extremely important part of it. Obviously these arent the greatest scenes - they are just the greatest scenes to me.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c9KAVWLF_zQ
Prometheus opening scene is the perfect mix of beautiful and mysterious and really lets you know what you are in for. Really the whole movie is visual stunning. The intro is really just a short film - no words, just beautiful weirdness - really good looking flaying saucer too. Love it. The attached clip is missing the second part but I know you have all have seen that a bunch.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZwdxHm4yUoM
Second scene in the intro from the movie Sunshine.The scene is awesome. Stap in - you're humanities last chance at survival and your already on the way. Dope. BTW look at this sick ship.
Interestingly.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=clG_1sqOsBs
That scene is probably my favorite scene from any movie. It actually makes me cry probably because you know everything that is riding on it and he can barely see or move. Kappa is all alone on a broken ship with time running out and that Murphy score...The fate of the world in 1 individuals hands. Utterly amazing.

I think this scene makes first contact the best startrek movie. Personally though - the scene is just too short feels almost like a wasted opportunity. I guess the fact you just want more of it makes it great. I woulda loved 2 or 3 more minutes of this battles sequence though.

Nice one. Puts me in mind of one of the few good bits from Star Trek 5: Kirk is alone and running from a godlike being. Then something rises behind him and blam, Bird of Prey to the face.

Its a problematic premise for the entire film series, especially as it goes on. Most of what they're doing isn't unreasonable by zoo standards [note: original films only, not the remakes], and most of the animals aren't a problem.

Its only when they suddenly have pterosaurs in the sequel and a weird teleporting mosasaur that can go from an enclosed lake to the ocean that it becomes problematic. Even the spontaneous breeding isn't actually a real problem- from a research perspective its actually a boon. [Feeding them once they hatch could be a problem, but they're still in enclosures, so its more an additional financial cost than anything else.]

The problem is the contrived reasons that allow their escape, and people wandering out to get eaten during the contrived events.

----
I do find it amusing that it remains one of the best uses of CGI in film, without going over the top and drowning everything out to the point that it becomes dull and pedestrian.

Efficiency is the highest virtue.

Yeah, but what’s your recommendation?

Another from me, and it’s from Terminator Dark Fate. Another criminally underrated movie.

It’s when the Rev-9 first appears. And is actually.......pretty charismatic.

It’s a scene which does require prior knowledge of the previous films (well, 1 and 2) to land, but it does.

It makes Terminators scary again. And kinda riffs on Arnie’s niche of physicality over acting ability (and fair enough on that, dude made a fortune out of it!)

I'd also say the ending scene when Oh Dae-su confronts the man who imprisoned him but I won't post it here as, whilst it is a phenomenal scene, it would be a major spoiler for the film and anyone who has not watched the film really should do so.
