Favorite Movie Moments


Recommended Posts

I love movies. Have no idea how many of them I've seen through the years, but I've probably forgot more than most ever see in their entire life. High brow, low blow, pure adrenaline, romantic chick-flicks, Asian, French, Italian... I see it all, and enjoy most of it (as long as they are well made...)

Movies can be emotional, entertaining, laugh out loud funny, romantic, sexy, depressing and a whole lot more. And in some scenes such emotions or genuine awesomeness are taken to a different level altogether. Iconic ones. Personal ones. Epic ones. And even among those, some moments stand out, and I can't for the life of me take the time needed to sit down to make a definite list of my favorite moments, but here are some of the ones I've really enjoyed. Most of them, you'll easily remember if you've ever seen the movies in question...

(obviously spoiler-taged for good reason, and if you haven't seen the particular movie, I rather suggest you get around to it rather than look behind the spoiler-tags....)
