Maybe I should've put this in the youtube video section but I was reading an old thread, "favorite movies" and I was wondering......what are your favorite scenes from a movie?

My favorite two are:

Apocalypse Now

Gz3Cc7wlfkI


The Good, The Bad and the Ugly

(Five whole minutes with no dialogue whatsoever. Sergio Leone in all his glory. :)) )

It is hard to top Apocalypse Now, here is another one.

from Lord of war



Of all the weapons in the vast soviet arsenal, nothing was more profitable than Avtomat Kalashnikova model of 1947. More commonly known as the AK-47, or Kalashnikov. It's the world's most popular assault rifle. A weapon all fighters love. An elegantly simple 9 pound amalgamation of forged steel and plywood. It doesn't break, jam, or overheat. It'll shoot whether it's covered in mud or filled with sand. It's so easy, even a child can use it; and they do. The Soviets put the gun on a coin. Mozambique put it on their flag. Since the end of the Cold War, the Kalashnikov has become the Russian people's greatest export. After that comes vodka, caviar, and suicidal novelists. One thing is for sure, no one was lining up to buy their cars.

What makes the scene even more powerful is that until this shot the whole movie was done like a stage play. No Camera movements or large sets. For the first and only time the camera starts moving and we get a 5 minute long scene showing the battlefield without a single cut in it, despite having over a hundred people in the scene.

Since I read Henry V I knew the speeches and even while in the play he declares after the battle:


Do we all holy rites;
Let there be sung 'Non nobis' and 'Te Deum;'
The dead with charity enclosed in clay:
And then to Calais; and to England then:
Where ne'er from France arrived more happy men.

It is only in the 89 Version that we actually see (and hear them) doing it. It quite surprised (in a positive manner) when I saw it the first time.

Just a slight nit-pick here. The AK was designed to be built using stamped steel. Most were except for an early batch in the 1950s built using machined receiver. The Soviet Union didn't have the equipment to mass produce stamped parts at that time. And the AK does overheat. I have seen videos on youtube where the front hand guard caught fire from the red hot barrel.

I don't have the time either to dig up youtubes or even figure out how to put them on. I have an important meeting tonight but just wanted to join in for a little mental relaxation.

There are several movies of which had special scenes in them that I liked.

The helo attack in "Apocolips Now" was pretty good ONLY because of the background music.

In "Jaws" I liked the scene where the great white shark chomps up the stern of the boat.

In "The Vikings" (Kirk Douglas, Janet Leigh, Tony Curtis) any scene showing those Dragon Ships was awesome when accompanied by the background music simulating a long animal horn.

The Cavalry charge on Bethsheba in WW I was awe inspiring in both the black and white movie "Forty Thousand Horsemen) and the made for TV color version "The Light Horsemen". Interestingly, scenes of the charge were incorporated into the TV series of the "Young Indiana Jones".

In John Wayne's "Stage Coach" the race through the salt flats to stay ahead of charging Indians was so expertly photographed no remake or copy for other movies have matched it.

The final battle scene in "Searching for Private Ryan" was so accurate it was actually shocking. Although the scenes of a left-handed sniper with a bolt action rifle designed for right-handers was very well done.

In "Band of Brothers", the arrival of authentic M-4 Sherman tanks to repel a German attack made me yell "ALL RIGHT".

In "Marooned", the attempt of a Soviet Voshtok space capsule to rescue Americans in a Gemini-type space capsule was a surprise to everybody. Even to the Russians which led to developing matching access hardware to space vehicles of both countries.

The ending scene of "It's a Wonderful Life" with Jimmy Stuart brings tears to our eyes every time.


Well gotta go now though there is more scenes I liked but it would bore you to death such as the wife swapping scene with Natasha Gurdin in "Bob and Carol and Ted and Alice". Well, almost any scene in any movie she was in and the most hilarious was with Tony Curtis in "The Great Race" where she was able to demonstrate her linguistic talent of speaking English, French and Russian.

Sorry. I did screw up the title. But I was in a hurry.

But I also need to add one more scene and that was where John Wayne was playing a parody of John Wayne (and won an Oscar for it) horse charging across the clearing firing his Ivory-handled Colt and his customized Winchester (which first appeared in "Stage Coach").

Even bronze statues have been cast commemorating that scene.

Yep! That's the one.
Now to add one more "charge scene" that impressed me - or at least was well photgraphed/choreographed. That's from the movie "Between Heaven and Hell (1956)" starring Robert Wagner and Buddy Ebsen.

That's near the end of the movie where Ebsen is seriously wounded. He and Wagner are on top of a hill that just had its trail cut off by Japanese soldiers. I think Wagner was carrying a BAR and he charged down that trail whacking one Japanese soldier after another on the way. They could hear him coming down, but his speed and momentum was too fast and too much for each individual soldier to get out of the way of his rifle butt or forearm stock.

Great scene topped off only a bit later when Ebsen is brought back down on a stretcher. Unmoving and eyes closed. Wagner looks at him in sorrow and asks, "Is he dead?"

Without moving any other muscle Ebsen clearly answers, "Nope".

IMDB - Raiders of the Lost Ark - Trivia (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0082971/trivia)


The infamous scene in which Indy shoots a marauding and flamboyant swordsman was not in the original script. Harrison Ford was supposed to use his whip to get the swords out of his attacker's hands, but the food poisoning he and the rest of the crew had gotten made him too sick to perform the stunt. After several unsuccessful tries, Ford suggested "shooting the sucker." Steven Spielberg immediately took up the idea and the scene was successfully filmed.

In Temple of Doom they parodied this scene with two swordsmen and Indy reaching for his gun only to realize he dropped it a while back.

There is absolute special place in my heart for that movie. I can't think of anyone that could have done that better than R. Lee, even my own drill in basic and he was tough one. He was a Marine drill, and when the Marines told him he couldn't be a drill anymore, he switched to the Army and they put him straightaway into Ft. McClellan MP OSUT. 16 Weeks of getting rode by that guy, wouldn't trade it for anything.

Two scenes from True Lies. Can't find the clips for them, so I will attempt to describe them.

1. The opening scene from Ahnold sneaking into the secured compound all the way to the escape down the snowy slope. He actually reloaded his Glock before emptying the magazine! The best part was when he told Tom Arnold: "could you lean back a second?" BLAM! BLAM! Two more guards fell down.

2. Tom Arnold tried to stop Aziz from escaping just outside the mall. Aziz turned around and let loose a mag of AK47 rounds. Tom Arnold hid his fat ass behind a lamp post that's only 1/3 of his profile. All the rounds either miss completely or impacted on the lamp post. Tom emerged from behind the lamp post, checked over his body, taps his crotch, and then blows a kiss to the lamp post.

well you don't get away with killing thirty horses for such scenes nowadays.

I don't think any horses were killed or seriously injured. Movie wranglers train special horses to fall over. It starts with a tripping line on a front hoof, slow pace, lots of straw to land on. Eventually the horse learns to do it himself on voice command, even while at full gallop. In many spots of that scene, the stuntmen called the trip command a tad early having the horses roll over BEFORE the pot charge (cannon ball) exploded. Others you can see the horses starting to get back up but quick editing to the next scene doesn't show them get all the way back up.

Actually, that entire scene probably took several days, maybe weeks, to shoot the distance shots, close-ups, etc. They couldn't afford to lose too many horses and stunt riders all in a one day shoot.

Though in the early days of movies, many horses (as well as other livestock) were killed until the SPCA moved in. But with horses, you also have a rider that needs to know which way the horse will fall so he can fall the OTHER way. A full grown horse rolling over you can be a bit painful.

According to imdb:

[QUOTE]Unlike the rest of Errol Flynn's blockbuster films, because of the use of trip wires and the number of horses killed in the film, "The Charge Of The Light Brigade" was never re-released by Warner Brothers. /QUOTE]

According to the same page also a stuntman was killed during the sequence.

I concede to better research. Good job.

I forgot how old that movie was (the year I was born) and in those days there was a lot of cruelty to animals. The only time I ever saw it was on TV once or twice - in black and white. Actually once in a colorized version that was so bold in color I was thinking of wearing sun glasses.

I always hated the colorized version of old movies. Using modern technology to restore a better video quality (like it was recently done with Metropolis), that is fine, but please don't use these ugly colors.

What I liked about the 36 version is how the motif of Rule Britannia is worked into the score, usually whenever the Union Jack is shown on screen.

Ok, female posting here! Yes, from a chick flick - When Harry Met Sally! The restaurant scene where Meg Ryan is faking an orgasm and Rob Reiner's mom, as a customer says "I'll have what she's having!" :biggrin:

Another favorite scene of mine is from "Gunga Din" starring Douglas Fairbanks Jr., Victor McLauglin, Cary Grant and Sam Jaffe (as Gunga Din).

Naturally it's the one where mortally wounded Gunga Din climbs to the top of a steeple to sound his bugle to warn the British Army that the Thugees were leading them into a trap.

It was also very heart warming in the final fade-out where Gunga Din was finally in full uniform as he always wanted to be.
