There are surely scenes in movies that are so amazing, that give you goosebumps, share them now...
Star Trek 09 opening.

Rachel Dawes death.

Superman turns back time.

Warrior Ending.

William Wallace's wife's death.
- The ending of The Negotiator
- Curb stomp scene in American History X
- The ending of Se7en
- The map room scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark
Han Solo being frozen in The Empire Strikes Back
Bane breaking the Bat. I longed to see that in a film and it's such a powerful scene in TDKR.

Warrior Ending.

So much this. Something special in my eyes when I see something in relation to there being brothers(one brother saying he loves the other while trying to make him tap). That's why even with its problems, I will always be a fan of Supernatural.
To name a few:

Excalibur : when Urien knights Arthur during the battle at Leo de Grant castle.

The Prestige : at the end of the movie when Jackman character is shot by Bale and he explain to him what is the true meaning of magic.

Avatar : when Neytiri is holding human Jack in her arms.

2010 : when Dr Shandra is on the Discovery and tell HAL the truth about why they have to leave so suddenly.

Star Wars OT : all of Darth Vader scene.
POTC: DMC: Introduction to Davey Jones's crew, and Barbossa's return.

POTC: AWE: Shipwreck Cove, Hoist the Colours, Davey Jones stabbing Will.

BB: Ice swordfight.

TDK: Rachel's death, Joker killing Brian, Two-Face-Gordon-Batman at the end.

TDKR: Hijacking, Batman's return, the bats swarming Bruce as he escapes the Pit, the first Batman/Bane fight, Bane's speech at Black Gate, last 10 minutes or so.

Hellboy II: Prince Nuada assassinating the elven king, the Troll Market, the Angel of Death.
TDKR: Bruce's escape from the pit; Batman's return; ending
Watchmen: Osterman's death and rebirth.
ROTK: Gandalf banishing the Ringwraiths attacking the remnant of the Minas Tirith Guard.
For me

Avengers 360 shot during the battle in NYC

Dark Knight ending/ speech

Spider Man 1/2 ending swing sequence (Rami version)

The Matrix when Neo comes back and defeats Smith

Star Trek 09 opening, Spock cameo, and ending

Paranormal Actvity 3's last 15 mins.

And others that I am forgetting....

The ending of Halloween, so well done.

A lot of scenes during The Avengers, still can't believe they did it.

Almost every scene in Titanic
