Favourite Moments in Movies

Posted in Erleben, Sehen um 6:19 pm von deadra

As previously threatened…here are 75 of my favourite movie-moments, in no particular order, in a list that was definitive and final 5 minutes ago and has therefore been out of date for at least 4 minutes already.

Note, that a) I included only films I’ve seen in full – so there will be glaring omissions, and b) I tried to stick to one scene per movie/per franchise, and I almost succeeded…almost. I could, of course, elaborate on the whys and wherefores of the selection, but there’s no point if you haven’t seen the films, and if you have seen them, you can feel free to argue with me ^^

Also, I tried really, really, REALLY hard to avoid spoilers, and I think I managed…up to a point, but frankly, if you consider things like „The ship sinks in the end“ spoilers, then yes, there will be spoilers. Consider yourselves warned.
