There are some great moments in movie history, and I thought it would be fun if we all posted some of our favorite moments. Pick your movie moment, go to YouTube and post via link. Post as many as you like.

The Fifth Element

Zorgs ZF-1Gun. Pretty much any scene with Zorg in it is great.

As Good As It gets

There were many moments in this movie that I loved watching, but this was a nice one because you got to see Jack Nicholson’s character open his eyes for the first time and for one moment not think about himself.

Little Children

Warning! This 6 minutes will change your brain. It’s a great moment because I’ve never been so shocked in my life.

Of course the contradiction is he lands on a planet where they speak English and he doesn’t know it is Earth?

Yeah Right!

I’m a sucker for dramatic speeches, so here’s a couple of my favorites:

The American President:

The Majestic:

Both excellent movies, IMHO.

Not so strange once you realize that it is Charlton Heston.  LOL

Funny thing, that popped up while I was watching the Jim Carrey clip. I had not seen it in years. That was a good one. A bit naive and dated, perhaps, but well worth watching.

Inception is one of my favorite movies of all time, and the ending is rather famous.

I just realized something interesting. All of the links I posted (except for the Jesus one) have music in them which I find absolutely wonderful. (BTW, Morricone, Vangelis and Zimmer have written some of the best movie scores, IMO.) I guess I judge a movie by its music more than I ever realized.

Without the music, the visuals pale in meaning. FI watch “Jaws” without the John Williams score and it’s dull and flat. Big shark, so what? With the music it’ll scare you shitless. I watched the movie at a theater in Myrtle Beach and didn’t get in the water for 2 days. I just sat on the beach watching for a fin! Ennio Marocone’s music made the spaghetti western, especially “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly” one of my favorites.

This is going to be totally OT, but I just remembered something while reading Jack’s post. A friend of mine who is terrified of sharks always makes sure to rent a house with a pool when on vacation with his family. He would never go swimming in the ocean. So I looked it up and found out that only 0.5 people per year die as a result of a shark attack. I told my friend that he has a much higher chance of dying in a pool while slipping on a wet tile, but he didn’t believe me. And this is a guy who is a scientist, a PhD in chemistry. Let’s blame it on John Williams.  grin

Another thread reminded me of this one. Can’t believe I forgot it the other day because it’s from perhaps my all time favorite movie, Braveheart.

Yeah, that’s a good one, FIK. I also like the Gladiator battle speech. And the Gladiator battle scene is one of the best I have ever seen. And, of course, the battle music is absolutely fascinating.

Exorcist

The exorcist is one of the few horror movies that I actually find to be creepy.

Fifth Element (Zorgs Philosophy)

This is another one from Fifth Element. I love Zorgs Nihilistic stance on life. Sick, but funny.
