The Field, however, surpasses expectations. If anything, there's a bit too much field.
Bit like my black Christmas example and girl with a dragon tattoo... it's the moment of realisation in a film that really gets me. They suddenly realise in the godfather that the young Al Pacino is not who they thought he was and you can feel their realisation.
Sometimes you can get that when watching Columbo
Also the moment Denzel Washington realises that he is fighting a supernatural force in the film Fallen, when a dozen people sequentially sing the same song.
That scene in Honey, I Shrunk The Kids when Rick Moranis realises he's shrunk the kids.
The end of The Long Good Friday has a great moment like that
Cheers for being vague and not spoiling it. Now to add that to my watching list.
The final monologue in Stand By Me.
"All those years, I thought it had been them who had stood by me. But really it was me who was standing by them."
That scene in The Matrix Reloaded when even Keanu Reeves realises that this script makes fuck all sense.
Yeah that's the one, thanks. 'It's not personal, Sonny; It's strictly business.'
the bit in crocodile dundee where mick is in new york and stops a handbag snatcher by throwing a tin of food at the thiefs head. Probably concussed.
Leon - "this is for matilde ....."
For a Few Dollars More
The closing scenes "...now we start". In particular, the expressions on Van Cleef and Volonte's faces. Oh and the music.
The casting for that one looks like a stroke of genius when you see the trailer for the new new one
Classic striking scene from a hard but enigmatic film
The bit in Heat where Pacino figures out what DeNiro and his crew are looking at.
One of my favourite scenes, from The Harder The Come,
Ivan chasing Jose out of the shanty town, much to the
amusement and joy of the children there.To the sound of
Pressure Drop by Toots and the Maytals. Just wonderful.
One I was glad to see at the cinema.
The end scene of every Bourne film when Moby kicks in
The tears in rain monologue in Bladerunner.
That's the best scene in the entirety of cinema history.
I was watching a BBC docu about science fiction and robots and they actually had Rutger Hauer on and he gave that monologue again. Just awesome. A mate of mine saw him once on the ferry to the Outer Hebrides from Skye, he was alone and did not want to speak to anyone.
'They say no'
Brassed Off, Danny's speech - Pete Postlethwaite.
Sad really, considering the things he's seen.
The tears in rain monologue in Bladerunner
The bit in Land and Freedom where the cast is forced to reenact one of Loach's student debates down the pub in a lengthy argument about land reform.
You missed its heyday. By today's standards it's very, very, very slow moving.
However if you want get a flavour, imagine a series of Strictly Come Dancing that ends with a
murder suicide pact gone wrong
The bit in Sunrise a Song of Two Humans where they're on the date in town and so wrapped up in each other they cross a busy intersection without noticing the traffic. Copied so many times since, but classic.
That tracking shot in Goodfellas where Henry and Karen are shown to their table.
Or the scene where Henry introduces the guys - Jimmy "Two Times" etc
Dammit, just about any scene from Scorsese's masterpiece.
