I don't know if this topic has been done before, but I thought it would be interesting.
Treat this list as the top ten movie scenes you would take to a desert island if you had no other entertainment, aside from body surfing. They will be the scenes that really moved you, or you think are technically good, or plain old entertaining.
Please state the movie, the scene and the reason why you rate the scene.
Zulu - 3 British ranks firing. Pure military precision and very powerful.
Crocodile Dundee - where Dundee climbs over all the subway patrons - heartwarming
Private Ryan - the battle at the end of the move as the German armoured cars come into the village. To me that was very realistic, the pure adrenalin was amazing. Image having to be in such a situation.
Last Of The Mohicans - the scene at the end where the Indian guy climbs up the mountain path. The way the music starts quietly and rises in volume builds up a great vista.
Waterloo - An old war movie the aerial shot of the British squares. Technically very well done and a great achievement to get so many extras to perform so well.
Cocktail - The scene with Tom Cruise and ? Byron (Aussie actor) make and shake their cocktails in the bar. Very entertaining - don't we wish we could all do that !
Back To The Future - The scene where Michael J Fox plays Hendrix guitar at the school prom. Very clever concept and very well done. Made me laugh for hours after.
Forest Gump has a couple
Ray - where he plays and sings on stage with one of his backing singers, the tension is intense and you can see where Ray got much of his inspiration from.
I'll add 2 more scenes in a few days.
