    Raiders of the Lost Ark lots of scenes to chose from but three scenes in particular , Indiana facing the swordsman pulls out his gun and shoots the swordsman, I didn't quite see that one coming . At the end The opening of the Ark of the Covenant and the end resultful the Nazis. And then the warehouse whee the Ark was sent which left me with the question of what was in those other crates. And would I really want to know the answer to that question?:)

    The scene in Empire Strikes Back with Leila addressing the men before they fight the battle of Hoth.

    I love it because the dialogue and direction don't demean the character because she's a woman and show her being respected by the men, and not because of her status as a Princess but because she knows what she's talking about. No ridiculous 'for the men' outfit choices either in this scene.

    There's a scene in Shane where Jack Palance enters the saloon and a dog whimpers and slinks away.

    Absolutely stunning. Whoever thought of that and whoever got the dog to act that way should have have got Oscars for that scene alone.

    I remember being overwhemled when I first saw it and every time I've seen Shane ever since, despite the whole movie being immense, I wait for just that moment.

    The opening scenes from The Battle of Britain (1969). No CGI in those days. Just some of the best flying sequences in real planes with real pilots. Especially the attacking Messerschmitts. And featuring Robert Shaw, Christopher Plummer and Lawrence Olivier.

    A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum (1966). Buster Keaton's last film. In a scene with Jack Gilford and the great Zero Mostel.



    And my favorite quote by Miles Gloriosus: "Right. And now back to Rome for a quick wedding and some slow executions."

    A grim scene from the John Ford epic The Searchers (1956) in which John Wayne gets nasty.

    The famous twist ending in "The Usual Suspects" along with the true identity of Keyser Söze. Despite repeat viewings it still gets me every time!

    You'll have to watch the film to fully appreciate the ending of The Best Offer. Amazing film!

    I was living just outside of Cambridge while they were shooting those sequences. Hot summer days and a mob of us lying flat on our backs watching them whizzing about overhead with camera plane in amongst them. Two weeks of awesomeness!

    Jaws - We all remember Roy Scheider's "We're gonna need a bigger boat!" quote; but I also love this scene of his too (contains one mild swear word) ....

    I like a few minutes later when his father saves him. Who would think a matte black mask could ever convey so much turmoil?
