Another movie thread (hopefully with a difference).
Rather than naming a favourite film, can anyone think of a great sequence within a film?Posted 5 years ago
The inspiration for this is the sword fight between Uma Thurman and Lucy Lui at the end of Kill Bil Volume 1. I think it is terrific cinematically, and I am not even a huge fan of Quentin Tarantino.KevevsMember
The guy that used the russian roulette scene from Deerhunter on the Revels ad is a genius.
sequence? I love the cut, and the idea in 2001 where the ape throws up a bone into the air and it cuts to a (fairly bone shaped) white orbiting spacecraft. It’s human evolution in one cut. Perfect.
I could spend days on this thread, but that one came straight to my mind.Posted 5 years ago
In the movie ” withnail & I” I always thought the sequence where they set off in the old jag to monty’s country cottage with jimi Hendrix “all along the watchtower” as the soundtrack is a classic sequence in the movie, perfect bit of cinematography from the shot of withnail shouting “slappers” at the schoolgirls to Paul Mann flipping his shades down to Danny’s piss test passer sequence, it’s all classic viewing.Posted 5 years agoKevevsMember
That’s a quality bit Somafunk. That’ll be “Scrubbers”. really memorable then!
Luke meeting his mum in her Car in Cool Hand Luke and then playing his banjo :(. Rutger Hauers improvised speech in Blade Runner death scene. The bit in One Flew Over The Cookoos nest where Randall takes the “nuts” out on the boat 🙂Posted 5 years ago
Oops….that’ll be the 3 whisky’s i’ve had t’night, or was it 4?….it gets confusing after the first, admittingly rather damn large measures hic!…….”scrubbers” it is then – we’re all in agreement! 🙂
“I assure you officer, i’ve only had a few ales”
The entire movie is quotable, and we’ve often attempted to work our way through it quoting word for word wi the sound turned down whilst playing the Withnail drinking n’ drugs game, never managed it yet in 22 yrs of trying.Posted 5 years agomikey74Member
Agree with the Pulp Fiction scene, although I would expand it to include that whole section, including the “mmmm that is a tasty burger” and “say “what” one more time, I dare you…”.
Pulp Fiction has so many great scenes in it.
I agree with that opening scene in Leon as well.
The end sequence of Seven…”we got a box…”
Taking a cue from last night: The opening scene in Inglorious Basterds – IMO one of the best scenes in modern cinema.Posted 5 years agoMrSmithMember
Opening sequence of once apon a time in the west.
Photographic framing and cinematic tension with great sound.
The end of Frankenheimers ‘The Train’ where the boxes of looted art are juxtaposed with the dead POW’s and the Nazi officers mocking Labiche(Burt Lancaster) about appreciation of Art.
Just realised both these clips use the sound of Steam trains, (I’m not a train spotter! )Posted 5 years agosamuriMember
As above, The opening scene to Saving Private Ryan.
Also, Roy Batty’s closing speech is brilliant.
So many more though worthy of a mention.Posted 5 years ago
Trains planes and automobiles when they’re driving between two lorries and Steve Martin looks across to see John Candy in a devil suit.

Pulp Fiction and SLJ’s biblical speech for me. I also love the scene in The Dark Knight where the Joker introduces himself to the mobs and makes the pen “vanish” but I’m biased as I think Heath Ledgers performance in that film is in my opinion one of the greatest of all-time in making a character believable.Posted 5 years agogrievoustimMember
I love long single shot sequences
The start of Touch of Evil
The start of The Player (in which the characters discuss the start of Touch of Evil)
The pool party in BoogieNights (included the camera going underwater.
The bit in Goodfellas where they enter the nightclub through the kitchens
The final chase through the train station in Carlitos Way
All awesomePosted 5 years agoRealManMember
Last 2 minutes or so of Garden State. So what do we do?
That’s a nice one.
Opening of 28 day later in deserted London.
“My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius…” scene in Gladiator
Both of those 🙂
In fact, most of commando I think.
So many possibles from this film..
And from 1:28 in… “…you’re pretty famous right?”
Of course this…
This is simply fantastic
But I could go on all day.Posted 5 years agoRealManMember
Forgot a few…

One scene I’ve always loved, was the one in Raiders Of The Lost Ark, where Indy comes up against the huge Egyptian with the sword, twirling it around, grinning maniacally, then Indy just shrugs, pulls his gun and shoots him!Posted 5 years ago
Remember seeing it for the first time, and the whole cinema cheered!
