    In the world of film, there are iconic scenes and shots that grab you and never leave you. What scene, in your view, is the epitome of 'Movie Magic'?

    For me, at least one of them, is the introduction of the AT-AT Walkers on Hoth in Empire Strikes Back, and the ensuing battle. Pure greatness.:up:

    The sudden realization that Bruce Willis was dead in The Sixth Sense.
    I went in refusing to read spoilers on it and it really too me off guard.

    The scene in Jurrassic Park in which they arrive on the island and drive through the gates, culminating in seeing the sauropods. Everyone turns around and stares, the music swells, and the camera turns to the dinosaur. My favorite moment in film.

    Luke losing a hand in esb was absolutely unexpected for me. It tore away at my soul to see him in such pain.

    another moment was when he was hiding under the stairs refusing to face his father in battle. The lighting on his face couldn't have been accidental.

    I loved ET's bike ride by the moon. LEt me just say the ride in orlando sucks if you're over five years old. you've been warned.

    Bruce Willis wrapping that fire hose around his waist and jumping off the roof of Nokatomi Building, just before it explodes. Die Hard

    Rocketeer when he stands on that building with the american flag on a pole behind him. I thought that was magical.

    Even though I knew the story of apollo thirteen going into the movie, I still got a little anxious to see them survive. I don't even know why... but it was magical.

    Superman's scream that shook the earth from Superman 1.

    The flying bike in front of the moon from ET
    The Lighting of the Torches and the first pan of Minus Tirrith in LOTR springs to mind too..

    and more of a whole sequence than one scene but in Back to the Future, Marty escaping Biff on that makeshift Skateboard, has always been one of my fave movie moments.

    magic moments

    kurt russell saving the black kid in backdraft

    the last minute 30 seconds of back to the future when doc tells marty about not needing the road space cutting back to the car flying off

    and last but finally not least, the statue of liberty beginning to walk after hearing higher and higher in ghostbusters two.


    these three scenes encapsulate what hollywood is today
