Favourite Movie Scenes

Hey I was wondering what everyone’s favourite movies scenes are. Here are some of mine.

Any of the most famous scenes from the Indiana Jones movies.

The scene from Casablanca in which Rick is upstairs chatting with Laszlo, notorious resistance leader and husband to Ilsa. Some German patrons begin to annoy the other customers by rudely singing “Die Wacht am Rhein.” To this point, Rick had stayed pretty neutral on the whole “Nazi” issue. But in this pivotal scene, Rick lends a single nod of support Laszlo’s way. Laszlo and the other bar patrons find the courage to drown out the Nazis with their own patriotic verse of “La Marseillaise”, and the Nazis leave. The patrons celebrate the minor victory and are clearly moved to tears.

What I like about it so much is that the script didn’t call for crying at all. They weren’t even acting like they were crying. They were crying for real. Casablanca was a World War II movie … that was being filmed in the middle of World War II. Casablanca was shot in 1941 during the German occupation of France, at a point where many questioned whether or not the United States would ever step in to help, and when nobody knew how the whole thing was going to turn out.

And the scene included actors who, in real life, had a lot at stake. To shoot Casablanca as a believable port town, producers brought together one of the most ethnically diverse casts in film history, and a lot of these extras turned out to be Europeans who had fled to America to escape the Nazis -- that is, they were basically real-life refugees. So imagine what they thought when that scene was being filmed.

I liked the one scene with the stuff that happened to the people, and the one guy died but didn’t really and stuff.

This is one that I immediately remember:

Even though I’ve never seen this movie in english, this part is fucking hilarious always. (specially due to the “Argentinian accent” or this specifical monster)
