Ha ha! Samuel L is just awesome in that scene - talk about screen presence.

Raise you with "English, motherf*cker! Do you speak it?"
The whole lead up to that scene with Samuel L Jackson and John Travolta walking along the hallway talking about 'foot massages and e**ting the b**ch out ain't the same ball park.'

So many from "Amadeus", a truly underrated masterpiece, but here's my top three...

- Salieri and the priest
"that was Mozart... Wolfgang, Amadeus, Mozart..."
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QCnOx4lmnbg

- Stanzie shows originals to Salieri
"no sir... he doesn't make copies..."
http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&v=...ture=endscreen

- Mozart dictates the Confutatis
"have you got it?... "
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tlPQD04tn88

but honestly, the whole film in one long fabulous scene!

Blade Runner - Tears in rain.

The line "like tears in rain" was never scripted, Rutger Hauer just made it up.. Apparently some of the film crew broke in to tears themselves when he did it.

The dance. Salma Hayek in from dusk till dawn. The sexiest thing I ever saw coming from a straight female.
The motorbike escape with Steve McQueen in The Great Escape.
The Russian Roulette scene in The Deer Hunter.
The beach love scene with Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr in From here to Eternity.

Just a few.

One of my particular favourites is the "skidmarks" scene in Hot Fuzz.

So many! Maybe quite random choices, though!

The 'Don't Stop Me Now' bit in Shaun of the Dead
The supermarket sequence in 'Hot Fuzz'
The Bride vs. the Crazy 88 in Kill Bill Vol. 1 - brilliantly choreographed, shot and scored
The Bride vs. O-Ren in the snow in Kill Bill Vol 1 - same reason as above
The montage/sequence at the end of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy set to 'La Mer'
Also in Tinker Tailor - stealing the file
Most of Master & Commander - beautifully made film
More than one from Atonement
- The Dunkirk beach tracking shot
- Briony with the French soldier
- The scene in the nursery, so weird and intense and one of the most brilliantly acted scenes I've ever seen

For sheer technical brilliance
The aeroplane sequence at the beginning of The Dark Knight Rises
The rotating corridor/anti-gravity sort of thing in Inception
Blowing up the house in Skyfall
The climactic battle in The Avengers

Not a movie, but I might add The Red Wedding in Game of Thrones.

That's a film that really deserved a sequel.

Oh, I totally agree! I'm a big fan of the Patrick O'Brien books and that's one of my favourite films of all time. Apparently there were plans for a sequel but they were put on hold because the film didn't do as well financially as the studio hoped and because of Peter Weir's other work. I think I read recently that it might still happen, though.

I always feel a little sad watching the movie, my dad was a big fan of the books and he would have loved the film but he died just before it came out.

Even though Atonement's not a favourite of mine, there's some beautiful and wonderful scenes in that film. I tend to re-watch specific scenes rather than the whole film. I love that scene where Robbie's writing his letter to Cee, with shots of her getting dressed whilst that piece of opera music plays.

Some random ones from me:-

'I'd make a good Gordon, Gordon' - Local Hero
Local Hero - Mac arriving home from Scotland, emptying his pockets, sticking his photographs of Gordon and Stella on his wall, walking out onto his balcony and looking out over Houston. Cut to village and telephone box, telephone rings, Mark Knopfler's score is perfect.

The bit in Ghostbusters after the GB have taken the stairs up to Dana's apartment; the camera zooms out slowly to show them wandering around her destroyed blown up apartment. I love the music in that scene too.

The Ice Dance bit in Edward Scissorhands

When Alec and Geena's characters first meet Beetlejuice in the model town. 'What are your qualifications?' Michael Keaton is hilarious in that short scene.

The scene in "The Bounty" when Bligh gives John Fryer a dressing-down below decks and removes him from his position as master of the ship in place of Fletcher Christian, following his poor performance when rounding Cape Horn.

"Mr Fryer, come back here. MR FRYER SIR, COME BACK HERE! You will dismiss when I have finished with you is that understood?"
"This is an outrage!"
"Mr Fryer!"
"In all my years at sea..."
"All your years at sea? Good God man if I'd known your nature I would not have accepted you as bosun of a river barge"
"Must I suffer this in front of the men?"
"YOU WILL SUFFER MY CORRECTION WHENEVER YOU'RE AT FAULT SIR!!"
"What fault?"
"GOD DAMN IT MAN, YOU TURNED YOUR BACK ON ME!"
"And for that I apologise"
"Very well"
"I protest..."
"You protest do you?"
"I am master of this ship...!"
"AND I SIR AM COMMANDER, BY LAW, I AM THE FIRST! DO YOU UNDERSTAND ME GOD DAMN YOUR HIDE? AND NOW YOU MAY DISMISS SIR!"

Hopkins and Day Lewis are just electrifying in that scene.

The Shawshank Redemption - the scene where they find Andy is missing from his cell.

The Green Mile - the scene where John Coffey cures the warden's wife of a brain tumor.

The first 10 mins of Saving Private Ryan - mind blowing.

I also just love the cinematography and score when Lucius takes Ivy Walker's hand as the monster is closing in on her at the front door. Mesmerising.
