    -The Final scene in the Bourne Ultimatum
    -The house party scene in Super Bad where Michael Cena gets into bed with the girl and mentions the gym class
    -When Cam Brady gets pulled over by police in The Campaign. Also, the campaign video scene where they compare Marty Huggins to Bin Laden

    Probably my favorite scene of all time. I forwarded to the appropriate time so just click on the link. For some reason it wouldn't load properly.

    Special effects rarely impress me. They are always too much - too much action, too extreme, too fantastic, too strange - but I found the movie Sunshine to be the exception to that. A visually stunning masterpiece, imo, that sucks you into a world of fire and ice in the extreme.

    I like the scene in the original Roots where Fiddler is talking about the white folks finally being free.

    The first time I saw "Saving Private Ryan", it seemed like a very well done combat action movie as I watched it. But I didn't see the point of the movie other than that, until the final 7 minutes. I've seen a lot of great movies in my time, but I don't think any 7 minutes of film has ever come close to hitting me like this did.

    As most of you know, I am no fan of the idiot-in-chief Reagan. But he was a decent enough actor in his time.

    One of the very greatest scenes in Hollywood history was when he portrayed the troubled Hall of Fame pitcher Grover Cleveland Alexander in "The Winning Team" (1952):

    Pitcher & catcher are chatting ~ "we must give this kid an easy pitch that he can hit or he'll be sent down to the minor leagues and never play Major League ball ever again". Catcher tells the kid 'we're gonna groove the pitch for ya'. Alexander (Reagan) grooves but the kid does not swing. Catcher tells him, 'I told you it's coming down the middle'. The kid swings at the next pitch for a hit (with the umpire giving the catcher a dirty look) and he stays in the Major Leagues.

    The kid was future Hall of Famer Rogers Hornsby who later managed Alexander.



    As a former player, coach for over 20 years, and former free lance baseball reporter, that scene is one of the most extraordinary I have ever watched. Darn near made me cry!

    Opening scene, Tough of Evil. One of the longest, and best tracking scenes ever filmed.

    Though the movie was released in 1998, for some reason I missed it and didn't see it until after my son had joined the Marines and been wounded in 2007. He almost died that day.

    In so many ways, he is Private Ryan. He lives well. He's married, 3 beautiful children, successful career. But he does so not just for himself, but for the ones they lost. He has told me that each one they lost died for the ones who returned home.

    Those last 7 minutes of the film broke down this ol' crusty, and I couldn't stop the tears. Hate to admit it, but it's absolutely true.

    HAL singing "Daisy" is a masterpiece. Ditto the scene above from Apocalypse Now (the whole film is a masterpiece).

    I note that in only two pages, there are a few references to "Saving Private Ryan". Never understood the appeal of that film. To my eyes, it's corny, sappy and 'Disney', with only the thinnest attempt to say we're all equal under the gun. The interesting thing about SPR is that it was released at the same time as another WWII film. One which appealed in a very different way, and to different people - and IMO was vastly superior. That film was "The Thin Red Line". A surreal, disturbing, beautifully poetic, 'hard work' film with no villians and no heroes. A strong biblical theme (as per almost all of Malick's works) with a central Jesus character offering redemption via his own flaws. While browsing through YT clips for scenes to post here, I found this comment:

    "On my mother's side her father and his brothers fought for the Germans. I had many pieces of that huge war told to me. I never understood what they said until I saw this movie. You see this is not a War Movie. It is the Psychological tale of the remnant of humanity that is forced to fight, live, and come back from or be killed in war. The movie told me what my father never could. What it was like to live day by day, minute by minute. It explained why my lovely grandfather, German as he was and part Gypsy, who also loved the Jews died on the Russian Front before he was forty. He was drafted. All soldiers, all real soldiers aren't for Uncle Sam or the Fuhrer... they exist to fight for each other, despite what happens they are linked. I appreciate the way Nick Nolte explains the vines choking the life out of the trees. He is portrayed as cruel and heartless, but the role he plays is of a passed over Colonel who has the task of winning the war, not mitigating why men fight. The young captain who he crushes, well, he is the hopeless intellectual and rational person who the war consumes. War is brutal, I have been there, but this movie captured it in ways I don't even think the writers and directors could imagine. I don't know why this film is not more celebrated than it is. I actually think of all the war films made, this one gets it. Doesn't celebrate one side over the other but looks at nature, looks at man, and then you are forced to ask yourself, with no coaxing... Where did we go wrong? Peace!"
