Thought I'd open up a thread for recommending favourite films moments.... Ben Hur - The Chariot Race The film itself has some excruciating long Christian evangelising - but hopefully easily fast forwarded on DVD. There are lots of nice moments - I love the Arab who owns the horses - he was the original inspiration for a couple of Chronicles characters - notably Qas, but Ali also formed (and then escaped) from that mould. But the high point is easily the chariot race - truly one of the most spectacular moments in cinema history. Cleopatra - Cleopatra enters Rome A film of two halves, the Cleopatra/ Caesar first half is easily the more interesting, the second section where Richard Burton's "Anthony" takes over becoming terribly prone to long melodramatic scenes. It's just a shame that the grand entry of Cleopatra was actually cut - magnificent viewing, though. Certainly don’t make films like that anymore.... Jaws - "You're going to need a bigger boat..." Yup - Roy Scheider's character sees the shark while aboard the Orca. The line says it all, and with a single sentence opens for the audience the fearful vulnerability of their position... Return of the Jedi - Attack of the Rebel Fleet Well, really, 'nuff said. The advent of computer graphics has yet to replace the realism that a few well constructed models can bring. And despite being 20 years old, it remains the best space battle sequence ever seen at the cinema.
