2. "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" - Mothership Revealed

A few from the Godfather Part II come to mind: when Tom Hagen and Frankie Pentangeli talk in the prison compound and discuss the history of how things used to be; Michael and Fredo discussing Fredo's betrayal, and the ensuing consequence. Pretty much any scene in the same movie with Robert De Niro.

Col. Kilgore's surfing scene

The gimp scene (pulp fiction)

No particular order:

* "Saving Private Ryan" Normandy Beach landing
* "The Godfather" the baptism/ all accounts settled scene
* "The Quiet Man" the brawl at the end of the film
* "True Grit (original John Wayne version)" last gun fight scene
* "The Deer Hunter" Russian Roulette scene

Honorable mention for "Road To Perdition" and the Church basement scene.

Any and all of these are subject to change as others come to mind.

I wanted to list something from Casablanca but, I couldn't pin point a scene that I liked more than another. A testiment to just how good the film is.

I could probably just use 5 scenes from the Star Wars trilogy. So many iconic scenes.

I'd probably go further than the emperor's scene in RotJ, though, and use the entire closing sequence, where you have three different plotlines coming together simultaneously, with the Vader/Luke/Palpatine fight, the lowering of the shield on the moon of endor, and the space battle and destruction of the death star. It's just huge in scope and I just love watching that whole 15-20 minutes. "Epic" is a word that's both been bastardized and overused these days, but that 20 minutes is an epic conclusion to an epic film trilogy. It's like the final movement of a symphony.

2001 is the same, there are so many iconic moments in that film, from the apes with the monolith, to the initial sequence in space, to HAL, to the stargate.

Casablanca, too, so many iconic (and quotable!) scenes. My favorite's probably the end sequence at the airport, where Rick has Ilsa convinced he's leaving with her, only to have her leave with Victor Lazlo. Then he walks off into the fog with Captain Renault. Just tremendous. Damn, I need to watch Casablanca again now.

Andy Dufresne in the rain, after his escape from Shawshank.

The end of Se7en.

Alec Guinness, "What have I done?" and falling onto the detonator at the end of The Bridge Over the River Kwai.

Sharon Stone in interrogation during Basic Instinct! I was 18. I will never forget.

1. The period from where John McClane discovers the C4 on the roof to jumping off the roof of the Nakatomi building.
2. The bank shootout in Heat.
3. The "Sicilian" scene in True Romance.
4. Bruce Willis killing Jack Black in The Jackal, because I ****ing hate Jack Black.
5. I know this might not count to some of you, but the Normandy leaving Earth in Mass Effect 3. I've never seen a video game scene evoke so much pathos.

I think you could say the same for the opening sequence with the Normandy's destruction and Shepard's death at the beginning of ME2. Shepard's breathing, the leaking suit, and then the piano theme. Just a few notes.

I now feel compelled to do another five (I could probably do another 20 or 30):

Dad... do you want to have a catch? Field of Dreams
Michael assassinates Sollozo and McCluskey - Godfather
Final shootout - L.A. Confidential
Pruett plays Taps - From Here to Eternity
Students file into the classroom when Jurel threatens to quit - Teachers

I'd say the reveal of your character's true identity from the original KOTOR tops both of them.

I still say that game's better than all of the Star Wars movies combined.
