Thumbs up What Are Your Favourite Movie Moments?

Pretty simple question. Share your answer with a brief reason, if you go into further detail then be sure to put
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
spoiler and/or blackout
tags around it when you're writing or editing your post (so that you don't (accidentally) spoil a great movie for someone who maybe has never seen it before). Here's a few that I can remember:

+Heat - The Cafe Scene and Ending: To me, it really didn't matter who won in this situation (referring to the ending), whether it be de Niro's character or Pacino's. The point is that these two characters, through these two great actors (Pacino and de Niro), reached a perfect balance between one-another and were both able to let their characters shine in the end. It was foreshadowed that de Niro's character was going to take the fall, with seeing his love around a cop, suspecting that she was the one to phone them up, but you have a feeling that he'll get away because the film pans out in both character's favours evenly, or, better yet, you hope that he gets away because he is a decent person, despite his criminal ways, who has flaws, just like Pacino's character (as revealed in the classic cafe sequence). Still, no matter the outcome, this ending was destined to be great, but it's elevated even higher than that when the final song starts playing and both characters are finally at peace with each other. A beautiful ending, probably the best ending to an action/crime film that I've ever seen.

+Take Shelter - Finally Taking Shelter: I love this film. Every single minute of it is grounded with such realism that these actors literally disappear into their characters (Michael Shannon and Jessica Chastain especially). Shannon's character, Curtis, has these reoccuring dreams about an impending storm that threatens to not only cause destruction to his home, but to the people who are caught in it as well. The strange, oil-like rain seems to turn people into crazed zombies, as shown in the most horrifying of all the dreams when Curtis' daughter gets abducted by a bunch of crazies, and this idea plays with your head throughout the entire film because the dialogue is so intricate; lines that seem weird on the first-viewing seem to hold deeper meanings in repeated-viewings, as they provide further clues as to whether or not the storm is actually real (or maybe has already happened). The pay-off to the dreams happens when the family has to finally take shelter in the storm shelter that Curtis spent the mass majority of his family's financials on in a desperate attempt to try and save his family. When the storm seems to have settled, the choice of whether or not to go back outside is difficult for Curtis to make, as the rain is still heard through his ears but not through his wife's ears, seeing him try to bring himself to unlock and open the door, being convinced by his wife that it's a good idea, is one of the most powerful moments in a film that I've ever seen. The three actors involved in the scene are great, the direction and script of it all is just perfect. This may just be the best film that I have ever seen so far in my life because it's the one that has left the biggest emotional and mental impact on me over the years since I've seen it.

+X-Men: First Class - Training at Xavier's Mansion and the Submarine Lift: Arguably the best part of the film, this entire 15 or so minute training sequence is the key scene for why I absolutely loved this film and why I think that it is Marvel's best film yet. Starting with Charles pointing a gun at Erik's head, there's immediate foreshadowing to their back-and-forth relationship, like Martin Luther King and Malcolm X in real-world history, these are people who can point guns at each other all they want, yet they could never bring themselves to pull the trigger because of their personal history and friendship. When Xavier accesses the brightest corner of Erik's memory bank, it's heart-breaking to see what it is because it's been so long since Erik's seen true happiness (as it was way back when he was a child) and it shows that all he sees in the humans is his own reflection of hate and rage for what they did to him and his family. The pay-off to this revelation is when Xavier teaches Erik to focus his mind to create a balance between rage and serenity, and, in turn, he turns a satellite around and lifts Shaw's submarine right out of the water (with Banshee's help, in an amazing dive and search sequence as well). These are the kind of shining moments that comic-book movies are meant to live by, I just wish that Michael Fassbender won an Oscar for this role because he was absolutely incredible in this film (still my favourite performance of his, despite having many other great performances across the board as well).

+Sexy Beast - Ben Kingsley as Don Logan and the Airplane/Cigarette Rant: I don't really need to jump into detail on this one, this is the kind of outstanding performance that you have to see to believe. This is a brilliant film too, but Ben Kingsley turns it into an absolute classic.

+Harsh Times - Christian Bale as Jim Davis and the Car Flip-Out: Another performance that's absolutely brilliant in every way, I'd love to see Bale do more films like this. It's definitely a mix between a dark comedy and a crime/character study about a guy who has a serious problem with losing control.

+Ratatouille - Remy Cooks Ratatouille for Anton Ego: One of the most beautiful moments in any animated or live-action movie ever made, the reaction on Ego's face when he tries the dish is the truest reaction I've ever seen any character give in any animated film to date and his speech afterwards about being a critic, along with when he meets Remy to thank him, is nothing short of phenomenal. One of the most joyous films I'll ever get to watch. I'll never forget the impact it left on me.

Xmen 2 - Nightcrawler in the white house. I remember saying " oh **** " and got told off for swearing lol

TDK - Batman interrogating Joker. To iconic CB characters in deep convo, I remember some people leaning out of there chair . Viewers were ingrossed in that scene.

Blade - Blade's intro into the club. Pure badness

American psycho - Batemans confession on the phone. Easily Christian Bale best performance " HAHA I JUST HAD TO KILL ALOT OF PEOPLE"

Warrior King- Tony jaa's restraunt fight shot all in one scene. Relentless springs to mind

Police Story - Jackie chan causing havok up in the shopping mall. One of the best fight scenes in Martial Arts films.

Terminator 2 - Opening war scene. This was scored and shot beautifully . The skull crush by the terminator then that slow eerie music creeping into the scene set the mood for me.

The Crow- Burning crow symbol. Enough said.

MOS - Superman getting flung into those buildings by zod with the score in the background was straight CB to Silver screen perfection.

What's love got to do with it - Dinner scene. " Goddamn frost this cake taste good, Anna may havve some of this cake. "

Robocop 1987 - Murphy's death scene . I was about 10 when i saw this scene, i was disturbed lol " Nenenenenen...nenenenen (BOOM) why not give the man a hand. "

Hell yeah Daywalker89, good call on Blade. I love the entire club scene, from time to time I'll put the movie on just to watch that, speakers cranked.

Also I'll add Rock IV's training montage and Rocky II's "Yo Adrian, I did it!"

The fight in April's appartment, sewer fight, Shredder fight, the part where Raph wakes up and the turtles are back together and Splinter's speech to Shredder in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

"Swear to meeeee!" in Batman Begins.

The Rex scene in JP.

The bathroom fight in The Warriors.
