    Great movie scenes & sequences

    Following on from the "your 3 favourite movies" thread,what's your favourite or most memorable scene from the flicks?


    A great movie is many things,often a bunch of epic sequences(Apocalypse Now) or even one great scene(12 angry men)Some of the gretest scenes are stuck in ordinary films so what's your most memorable scene?

    I'll start with Quint(Robert Shaw) and the USS Indianapolis speech from Jaws....just pure genius from a great actor.

    honourable mention to Tom Hanks in Castaway(which I've always thought is a very underrated film)for the 10 or so minute section early on after he washes up on the beach where there's absolutely no dialogue at all...none,zero...not a word is spoken and yet Hanks acts it out of the park...it's an incredibly brave thing to ask an audience to sit through a prolonged period of silence and yet it's as compelling a sequence as I've ever seen.

    what you got?

    This has always been one of my favorite scenes, though it's missing my favorite part ("I have just two small pairs. Eights . . . and Eights.")
