10+ Movie Scenes Fans Will Never Forget

There are certain scenes in movies that for one reason or another, stay with you long after you've left the theater. It's a statement to the profound effect and importance cinema has on our lives.

I wanted to pay homage to some of the scenes and movies that have impacted me. That's why I've compiled this list of 10+ movie scenes that fans will never forget.

When we found out what was in the box in *Se7en*.

I love this movie but even I can't stomach a viewing more than once a year.

The final scene is deeply disturbing; without a doubt it's one of the most memorable moments of Brad Pitt's cinematic career.

"Oh Captain, My Captain" from *Dead Poets Society*.

I have a soft spot for Robin Williams, I admit it. But I don't think I'm alone when I say that Dead Poets Society ranks among his best.

This gentle act of defiance is the shining moment of the entire film.

The water cups in *Jurassic Park*.

It's difficult for me to envision a film that's captured my imagination better than Jurassic Park.

Spielberg's ability to convey such sheer terror through something as simple as a ripple in a glass is just one example of why he's a living legend.

It's all business for Michael Corleone in *TheGodfather*.

Granted, there are probably about five different scenes I could have chosen from The Godfather.

But when Michael tells Sonny "It's not personal. It's strictly business," that is the symbolic moment where he becomes the head of the Corleone family.

When Chief Brody realizes that they're going to need a bigger boat in *Jaws*.

Ever wonder why you're afraid to go into deep, dark water? The answer is Jaws. Steven Spielberg's immortal classic still to this day instills fear around the globe.

Seeing the shark for the first time is nothing short of terrifying.

When *E.T.* tells Elliot where he can always find him.

I'd forgotten just how much of a sob-fest E.T. was!

The moment he lights up his finger and says to Elliot "I'll be right here," is enough to reduce even the greatest stoic to a puddle of tears.

The first time Michael Keaton told us he was *Batman*.

Two magical words helped to change the face of comic book storytelling forever — "I'm Batman." From the point on, things would never be the same.

Watching Keaton's magnificent display as the Dark Knight is one of the greatest moments of my childhood.

No words are necessary in *Love Actually*.

Love Actually is a confounding film that shows in life, not everyone gets the happy ending they deserve or want.

I can't get more than three lines in before I start bawling like a baby.

When Luke Skywalker discovers who is father really is in *Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back*.

There's a zero percent chance that either you or someone you know hasn't uttered the phrase "I am your father" at least once. It's one of the greatest moments in the history of film.

Doc and Marty see some serious [expletive] at 88mph.

The first time I watched the time-traveling Delorean speed toward Doc Brown and Marty McFly, my chest tightened with anticipation, fear, and total bewilderment.

It was this moment that helped launch one of the most iconic film trilogies of all time.

The time everyone wanted what Meg Ryan was having in *When Harry Met Sally*.

I feel like a broken record but I just can't stress this enough — if you still have not seen When Harry Met Sally, then you are missing out on the greatest rom-com ever.

When Dorothy realizes she's not in Kansas anymore.

The beginning of The Wizard of Oz begins in dreary black and white. The moment that Dorothy awakens to find herself in the brilliantly colored world of Oz is not only awe-inspiring from an aesthetic standpoint but a technological one as well.

Don't forget, color films were still very rare in 1939.

The inevitably of Tony Stark.

The snap heard around the world will never be forgotten. It closed a chapter on Robert Downey's legendary run as Ironman and helped launch the MCU into the next phase.

What's your pick for the most unforgettable movie scene? Leave a comment and let us know.

The time we realized that Steve Carell has a lot of chest hair in *The 40-Year-Old Virgin*.

Knowing that Steve actually had the waxing done in real-life makes this all the funnier. That's right, it wasn't a prop or some stand-in. He really did wax his chest and those are his genuine pain responses.

Dinner for two in *Lady And The Tramp*.

Imagine you were asked to sum up Disney in just a single scene, which would you chose? For me, the answer is simple.

The spaghetti smooch is nothing short of pure cinematic genius.
