Quint's Indianapolis monologue from Jaws is way up there on my list as well. Gives me chills, no matter how many times I see it.

The scene in the 1986 transformers where Prime takes on all the Decepticons to get to Megatron.
The end of BTTF where you see the Delorean Fly for the first time.
The ending flyby in Superman with Chris Reeve
The end of Thunderdome where Max just gives in to the fact that no matter what he's a good guy at heart and saves the plane.

Funny - was just thinking about a thread along these lines. I'd read a review of Drive stating the opening sequence was some of the finest film-making ever.

Not for me...

Here's just a couple:
--Raiders bar gunfight
--Second bar gunfight in Desparado

Picking five favourite scenes (or moments) certainly is a daunting task. :wacko

Some ones have already been mentioned so I won't repeat them.

Sooooo...

-Kirk double crosses Khan and the Enterprise opens up with her phaser banks (still gives me goosebumps to this day)

-"I'll be back" (The first one)

-Superman saves Lois and catches the falling helicopter

-The Air Cav helicopter assault in Apocalypse Now

-Robocop reclaims his humanity by answering that his name is "Murphy"

Off the top of the old noodle...

Opening scene in Silverado -- best opening IMO

Tantive chase in Star Wars -- changed my movie watching DNA as a kid

Barry kidnapping in Close Encounters

Always be closing speech in Glengarry

The moment when Michael Corleone finds out his brother was the one who betrayed him and then realizes he has to kill his own brother -- no words spoken yet it's all in his face.

many more to add

1 - The Godfather part 2 - When Senator Geary is in Michaels office (during his sons communion party) and Geary is basically slamming Micheals Italian background and says he plans to charge him a higher price for the gambling license...Michaels counter-offer is priceless.


2- Jaws- Indianapolis speech of course.


3- Final scene from the Shining.


4- King Kong (1933) When Denham pulls out the map and finally tells Englehorn and Driscoll about the legend of Kong...."Every legend has a basis of truth"

5- Close Encounters - When Neary is at the railroad tracks.

My all time favorite is LOTR ROTK when everyone, even the King bows to the Hobbits---eeessseee....goosebumps just to think about it!!

In Short Circuit when Number Johnny 5 doesn't understand about death and wants Stephanie to re-assemble the bug.

The Lion King, the presentation of Simba!

In Little Big Man when Grandfather goes up on the mountain to die and makes his big speech and lays down but doesn't die.

The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951 original) when Gort goes and gets the dead Klaatu and carries him back to the space ship.

Don't know that these are my top five, except for the top one, but some of my favs that I could think of right now.....

2001: A Space Odyssey - When the ape has an epiphany and figures out how to use a bone as a weapon and tool.

Terminator 2: Judgement Day - T-1000 chases down John Connor with a truck

Jaws: Anonymous guys try to catch the shark with the wifes holiday roast, resulting in the dock being pulled down with the shark. Now towed by the shark, the dock then proceeds to turn around and head for the fisherman who fell into the water as a result. This isn't the most talked about scene in Jaws, but it is my favorite.

Nosferatu : Shadow creeping up the stairs.

An American Werewolf in London: Werewolf attack on the moors.
