Best Movie Scenes


The Top Ten

1  Ezekiel 25:17 - Pulp Fiction

Pulp Fiction is garbage - CedreticFomento

For me, as good as Samuel L. Jackson is, the only scene in the entire film that sticks out to me doesn't even involve him: Christopher Walken and the pocket watch. - truckturner

This scene was the most perfect ending you could have had to an awesome movie. By far the most badass scene of any movie ever.

The best scene from probably the best movie of all time. Sam L Jackson>any other actor. Quentin Tarantino>any other director

2 Jack Sparrow's Palace Escape - Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

I like how he stopped mid point just to get a cream cake he wanted. And just when he's escaped the clutches of the redcoats, Keith Richards pops up.

You will always remember this as the day you almost caught CAPTAIN Jack Sparrow. - jezza0

One thing Jack Sparrow is very good at is escaping. This scene proves it.

3 Pencil Trick - The Dark Knight

Classic! funniest part of the movie. R.I.P Heath Ledger - dragon13304

Oh and the suit, it wasn't cheap. You ought to know, you bought it.

The whole movie is great... Every scene is great.

This Scene Scared Me The First Time I Saw It

4 D-Day - Saving Private Ryan

Tom hanks weird "disease" in this scene was exceptional..

The scene is almost real. I felt like I was actually there in the war, and its just so sad and astonishing to watch. Without a doubt it's the best movie scene of all time. Nothing can compare. - lukestheman4

I remember first seeing this scene in the therature and seeing people start to vomit at the scene. it was so good that it would envoke multiple human emotions

5 Always Look on the Bright Side of Life - Monty Python's Life of Brian
6 Shower Scene - Psycho

I bet Marion would've got out of there easily. if there were any shampoo or conditioner bottles in there she would have thrown those at Norman's face, knocking him out, and then getting out alive (naked! ).

Classic scene that made a lasting impression forever. R.I.P. Alfred Hitchcock

I have a heart attack every time I watch this scene. Along with that horrific music.

7 Don't Stop Me Now Zombie Attack - Shaun of the Dead


Beating up zombies to the tune of one of the greatest Queen tracks is certainly more entertaining than a band of washed up US troops in Normandy.

What's better than fighting zombies?
Fighting zombies to the beat of QUEEN!
(Honestly, QUEEN made this scene a whole lot better)

Shaun: Who the Hell put this on?
Ed: It's on random
Liz: For f***'s sake

8 Body Burst - Alien
9 Opening Scene - 2001: A Space Odyssey
10 You Bow to No One - The Return of the King

Great scene where all the characters bow down to the hobbits because they are the true heroes. they fallowed and protected frodo on the quest to destroy the one ring.

The Contenders

11 Don't Go (Ending Scene) - Interstellar

I agree it was epic - Toucan

It is the greatest movie scene ever.The plot became full circle by that scene.
Amazing acting of Matthew McConaughey just sent shivers down my whole body.His voice so full of emotion, frustration and helplessness.
Also, the song S.t.a.y. in the background by Hans Zimmer just connected so well with that scene. Not to forget the scientific part of the scene : The representation of the Fourth dimension, The tesseract using special effects was also so Amazing. - Neeoo

12 Stairway to Heaven - The Song Remains the Same
13 Village Shootout - Hot Fuzz

This was one cool shootout scene in any movie let alone a British film! Hot Fuzz forever. Good on you Pegg and Frost.

14 Mark 42 Armor / Jingle Bells Dance - Iron Man 3

It was funny seeing the Mark 42 suit misbehaving for Tony Stark.

Robert Downey Jr must have had a whale of a time filming that scene.

Accompanied by a very soulfull version of Jingle Bells.

As always a pleasue seeing Robert Downey Jr experimenting with his Iron Man suits.

15 Ending Scene - City Lights
16  I Am Your Father - The Empire Strikes Back

Such an amazing and plot twisting scene, that makes it so much more difficult for luke to fight later. it easily the one scene that even later generations will know and remember.

Why is this not higher? The plot twist none saw coming now engrained in people's memory forever. From the casual to the diehard fan, this scene is cherished fire how shocking it was at the time. But then Brother Lucas gave people a backstory to this plot twist no one really asked for.

IConic twist now part of pop culture


17 Tuco Argues With His Brother Pablo - The Good, The Bad and the Ugly

While preparing to leave his brother's monastery, Tuco stops by to say hello to his priest brother Pablo, whom he hasn't seen since 1853. But Pablo's welcome is less than warm, and he brings Tuco some upsetting news... - SourNote2014

18 Anti-Gravity Hall Fight - Inception
19 Stargate (Ending) - 2001: A Space Odyssey
20 Midget Bar Brawl - Jackass 3D

This was insane Wee-Man vs midget gang, then midget cops and midget paramedics arrive.

21 Bear Fight - The Golden Compass
22 Bart Skateboarding Naked - The Simpsons Movie
23 Bruce Lee vs. Chuck Norris - Return of the Dragon

You may thought Chuck Norris memes are always funny because of how powerful he is. Explain this? Bruce Lee beats Chuck Norris on purpose and he won. Lee should have a meme than Norris.

24 Quint is Devoured - Jaws
25 The Party - The Lower Depths (1957) 

At the end of the film, the residents of the slum, while gambling, break out into their own song and dance number. The choreography and the editing is top notch here. - SourNote2014

26 Defibrillator - The Thing
27 The Ecstasy of Gold - The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
28 Gunfight and Car Chase Near the Miami Highway - Bad Boys 2

Love the whole movie, b

ut that scene was sick with it. I felt like I was in the chase also

29 The Knights Who Say Ni! - Monty Python and the Holy Grail
30 Bridge Collapse Premonition - Final Destination 5
31 Stay Puft Marshmallow Man - Ghostbusters
32 What's in the Box? - Se7en

Kevin Spacey's performance was so amazing. - JCHOW

Never a scene as intense, brilliant, clever, and well shot as this one

33 Crows Attack the Students - The Birds
34 Final Showdown - The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

The best triello from the best spaghetti western

It's one of the greatest for one simple reason: We're worried about Tuco. All this time we've been following him on this incredible journey through the Wild West. We've seen him survive things that would kill a man. We've grown to really like him over the course of the movie. And now, watching him in a three-way showdown between Blondie and Angel Eyes, we're not sure he's going to make it.

Come on guys this is the BEST SCENE ever made! I can't get enough of this

35 Blackout Destroys Military Base - Transformers

This scene was so cool!

36 Bullet Time - The Matrix
37 Final Rap Battle - 8 Mile

Eminem RULES

38 Kikuchiyo's Speech - Seven Samurai

While training his men to fight the bandits, wannabe samurai Kikuchiyo notices that one of the peasants is not holding a bamboo stick, but an actual spear. He interrogates him and finds dozens of pieces of samurai armor at Manzo's house, revealing that the farmers had either killed samurai or stripped fallen ones. The other samurai are shocked, and Kyuzo confesses that he'd like to kill every farmer in the village.
Eyes brimming with angry tears, Kikuchiyo unleashes a furious tirade towards the farmers for being cowardly vultures, and then attacks the samurai just as brutally for being bullies who sack villages, enslave the men, take the women, and kill them if they resist.
As Kikuchiyo collapses into a furious raging wreck, a guilty Kambei's suspicions are confirmed.

This scene is a remarkable turning point for Kikuchiyo and helps to draw the farmers and samurai closer together and understand one another.

39 Ending - Red Lion
40 You Talkin' to Me? - Taxi Driver

I heard this scene was improvised.
