    I love Marty McFly and Johnny B. Goode from BTTF. Heat shootout. Close encounters lights and sound with the ETs.

    I’ll make him an offer he cannot refuse.

    And.

    Luca Brazi held a gun to his head and assured him either his brains or his signature would be on the contract.

    Same film.

    Alfred hitchcock's rear window when the character Lisa is in the killers apartment explaining things to the police, she has her handa behind her back and she pointing out the dead woman's wedding ring on her finger - and the killer sees it and glances across to James stewart's apartment.

    This scene from the movie Come and See always kinda terrified me but also astounded me at the same time ,the fact that they were firing real guns was probably one of those reasons ...Bad dubbing excluded.

    only saw a documentary on Netflix about the mafia families in New York and thought of Good fellas but then realised good fellas is the story of them

    Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse - the leap of faith scene. Especially that 2 second bit where it inverts and slows motions (52 seconds) - but the perfect music, comic book hints (Woooooo 1min34), animation and colours all perfect for best super hero movie out there

    The closing 10 minutes in Whiplash stuck with me and still does, zero dialogue but the tension is unbearably palpable.

    The ending of The Usual Suspects when the fax comes through and the cop realises Keyser Soze's identity via the flashbacks.

    The car scene in Se7en when Mills, Somerset and John Doe are on the way to the deserted road and John Doe ever so slightly loses his cool.

    Several scenes in The Shining spring to mind:

    Jack at the bar in the empty ballroom;
    Jack in the bathroom with the butler;
    The person in the teddy bear suit;
    "All work and no play..." on the typewriter;
    Jack smashing through the door with axe...


    Wait a minute, the entire film is great scenes!

    The Empire Strikes Back - When Luke comes face to face with Vader for the first time. The lighting, sounds, set, just beautiful



    Return of the Jedi - Luke confronts Vader for the second and final time. Same again here with the music, lighting, set....but the bubbling undercurrent as the Emperor watches on, looking at his plan seemingly falling into place....the rebels battling the Empire fleet, the ground attack on the shield generator...all happening at the same time. This is what made Star Wars pure magic

    One that always stuck with me since I was a kid is ‘Where’s the goat?’

    Jurassic Park was the first movie I experienced first hand that transcended being just a movie and that scene was the highlight for me. It does such a good job of building the tension from the storm rolling in, the shaking water, the wires of the paddock snapping, and then the pay off with the T-Rex is perfect.

    Always loved the scene in inglorious basterds where christoph waltz character comes to the house of the farmer he suspects of hiding Jews.

    You can feel the tension coming off the screen, brilliant acting, also done in a couple of languages

    So hard to pick just a few.

    The reveal of the real horror of Harmonica's back story in Once Upon a Time in the West. It lands like a punch. "Keep your loving brother happy."
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qwb3P0fuM1c

    The Ecstacy of Gold scene in The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly. The cinematography, music, and Wallach's physical performance convey building excitement like nothing else I can think of.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ubVc2MQwMkg

    The scene in MASH where an officer barges into an operating theatre where Hawkeye and Trapper are working and demands to know who they are.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VB_rGCjgPCo

    Ash's final scene in Alien. "I won't lie to you about your chances, but you have my sympathies."

    The Wrath of Khan: Spock's self-sacrifice. "I have been, and always shall be, your friend."

    Encounters at the End of the World: The suicidal penguin.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7kdDeGXUjI

    Star Trek (2011): George Kirk's last stand. Pure melodrama, great action, and that final shot of the little specks of shuttles fleeing from the stricken Romulan ship backlit by a sun as the score swells ... this is peak blockbuster.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vAf5qSwsZrM

    Sunshine: Kaneda's sacrifice. Great score, huge stakes, but totally centred on character. Every single character is shown reacting differently.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hR69EKvcW-4

    The interrogation in The Dark Knight. "You have nothing. Nothing to threaten me with. Nothing to do with all your strength."

    Paddington 2 (just the best ever...)

    So many scenes, but I just love the "rogues gallery" scene where Lord Downton turns off the light instead of the mic.
