My favorite moment overall in the trilogy is -probably- the Phoenix climax on Alcatraz in X-Men: The Last Stand. I think it's emotional, epic, shot beautifully, superb acting. I know a lot of people have problems with the "You would die for them?" "No, for you" exchange, but I personally highly enjoy it, and feel it's in character for both involved. It should be Cyclops, yes, but overall, I just can't let my fanboyism get in the way of a great scene (or is it my fanboyism saying the scene is great?)
Some of my favorite moments from each film:
-Xavier and Magneto interaction at the Senate hearing.
-Wolverine cage fight introduction.
-Cyclops talking to a comatose Xavier - "Everything worth knowing I learned from you"
X2: X-Men United
-Magneto's escape from the plastic prison
-Nightcrawler's White House invasion
X-Men: The Last Stand
-Phoenix climax on Alcatraz
-Magneto's church and forest speeches
-Magneto's televised terrorist threats
--- 5 options from each movie, plus an "other" choice. Poll allows for multiple choice answers.
i can't believe you didn't list the raid on the mansion in X2.
Wolverine: "I got one. Domino or Psylocke?"
Nightcrawler: ".....British or Japanese Psylocke?"
