The Maximus Decimus Meridias speech in Ridley Scott's Gladiator

The Mos Eisley Cantina scene in Star Wars

The Mozart on the tannoy scene in The Shawshank Redemption

'Alan,kill me,for God's sake kill me...' In The Wild Geese

The opening of Star Wars as the huuuge Imperial Cruiser enters from the top of the screen. (Remember, when we first saw it we had no idea of what it was or what was to come)

The ground assault on the rebel base on the planet of Hoth, in The Empire Strikes Back.

The final car journey in The Devil's Rejects, with the awesome Skynyrd soundtrack.

The opening 20 minutes of Once Upon a Time in the West as various no good types await the trains arrival. Especially Jack Elam and his fly.

The Three Amigo's sing My Little Buttercup in a western saloon that Django would steer clear of.

The Gladiator Maximus speech always sends a shudder up my spine Reaps.

Great idea for a thread by the way.

Cheers Dem.

Yeah one of the best speeches ever made.

I remember reading a report that a clergyman in England had refused to christen a child Maximus!

This takes some beating as a scene. - Braveheart


WALLACE
Sons of Scotland!... I am William
Wallace!

SOLDIER
William Wallace is seven feet tall!

WALLACE
Yes, I have heard! He kills men by
the hundreds! And if he were here,
he would consume the English with
fireballs from his eyes, and bolts
of lightning from his ass!

Many laugh -- all get the point.

WALLACE
I am William Wallace. And my enemies
do not go away. I saw our good nobles
hanged. My wife... I am William
Wallace. And I see a whole army of
my countrymen, here in defiance of
tyranny. You have come to fight as
free men. And free men you are! What
will you do with freedom? Will you
fight?

VETERAN
Two thousand, against ten? We will
run -- and live!

WALLACE
Yes. Fight and you may die. Run and
you will live, at least awhile. And
dying in your bed many years from
now, would you be willing to trade
all the days from this day to that,
for one chance to come back here as
young men, and tell our enemies that
they make take our lives, but they
will never take our freedom?

Another rousing speech.

Historically incorrect,but rousing nonetheless.

Another classic scene is Pesci telling De Niro that his stomach is in the way of his television screen in Raging Bull .

I love the bit in [b]Conan The Barbarian[b] when he's asked what is best in life.

To crush your enemies, see them driven before you... and to hear the lamentation of their women!

I wish I hadnt sold my Conan dvd and could watch it now, just have to wait for the BD next month.

Victor Laszlo: Play the "Marseillaise."... Play it!

Just one of about 200 memorable scenes in the best film of all time - Casablanca, as Rick's Place threatens to crumble as the Germans are humiliated by the French national anthem being sung at deafening volume from every corner of the bar.

The first three scenes of Once Upon A Time In The West (waiting for Harmonica, the McBain massacre, Jill's arrival) are the greatest things cinema has yet given us.

The chainsaw fight at the end of Tiger on the Beat is one of my very favourite movie moments.

Apparently Gordon Lui's shoe being sliced was not scripted, it was an accident when Conan Lee was cutting through the floor. Lui ever the professional simply carried on acting.
