The entire movie of Darkstar is great.

How about when Dave Lister puts himself under the pool table in the box marked Ouroborus. Brings a new meaning to the gradfather effect, or...

Galaxyquest:
"Whoever wrote this episode should be shot!"
and when Sigourney says "Screw that" in front the chompers, read her lips! It's not SCREW what she says...

Alien:
When the alien comes up to the short haired female as they're gathering supplies, and the tail slowly slides towards her, and then it fades to Ripley as she screams.

Quite a few that others have mentioned.

Star Wars ROTJ:
Leia's outfit on Jabba's dias.
Noticing the dancer fall out of her top before she becomes rancor snack.

Ladyhawke:
When Isabeau comes into the cathedral, and Navarre drops his sword to run to her. PS Michelle Pfieffer not my fav, neither is Rutger, but that was a great movie.

Oh lordy. Navarre prancing into the cathedral, dead silence except for the horses hooves clanging loudly on the floor. Awesome moment. Not the best but very good anyways. And when Navarre and Isabeau see eachother for just a moment before she changes and flies away, wow.

Yeah, I'm a romantic. (Read romantic as "puss")

Farscape: Crichton perched on the edge of a table, calmly staring at Scorpius for several minutes as the Command Carrier begins to disintegrate.
Then he quietly says, "You might want to hold on to something."

Was that line in the film? I know it was in the book, and was used in 2010, but I don't remember it from the original movie.


Thank you! I thought I was going crazy!
I'd seen 2001 at the Cinerama Dome as a youngster in the mid-70s, then read 2010 in hardback when it came out, then saw the movie on opening weekend at the Cinerama Dome... and that line always bewildered me, because I didn't remember it in the original movie, and couldn't find it no matter how many times I watched the DVD so many years later.

Finally read Clarke's original 2001 novel just last week (!), and there was the line: "The thing's hollow—it goes on forever—and—oh my God!—it's full of stars!"

Further clouding the issue was Clarke's retconning of Discovery's final destination from Saturn (as it was in the 2001 novel) to Jupiter (as it was in the 2001 film) for the 2010 novel.

Nice to finally get that all worked out!

I would have to say Spock's death in the Wrath of Kahn, when he told James that he died because the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few or the one.

I didn't scroll the entire thread so these may have been listed.

Near the end of Star Trek III as Kirk and McCoy are watching the Enterprise crashing throught the atmosphere. "My god Bones, what have I done?" Don't know if I've ever seen a more convincing portrayal of just how attached someone could be to a ship.

The first episode of Supernatural. Sam and Dean's mom pinned to the ceiling then bursting into flames. Such a powerful moment and the catalyst for the entire story. I never expected to see something like that on a TV series.

Gandalf standing his ground against the Balrog.

Obi-wan sacrificing himself in Episode IV. Even though I was too young to understand it I was still blown away.

Agent Smith pumping round after round into Neo as Morpheus watches abject horror. I had the same look on my face in the theate while thinking "holy shit he's dead!?"

In Ghost Busters when they killed the Stay Puff'd Marshmallow Man. I loved that guy.

Man, what a great thread. I don't have a whole lot of time, so I'll just pick some random highlights for me:

Manly tear award:
T-800's thumbs up in T2

Blubbering like an idiot at the screen:
Serenity, twice. (you know where)

Blubbering like an idiot at the TV:
"Meridian" from SG-1. Daniel Jackson's send off. Teal'c's line always starts it off

Punch the air award of TV:
"Pegasus" cliffhanger from BSG. After the whole episode of hearing about how bad Cain is running things and Tyrol and Helo's arrest, Adama just makes a line in the sand and proclaims "I'm getting my men back!" and launches alert vipers. I let out a hearty "Frak yes!"

"Did that just happen? Oh my god, that DID just happen!" award of TV:
BSG "Crossroads part 2" enough said. So many great revelations here. From a courtroom speech, to strange meetings, to weird bogeys on DRADIUS. And the music, oh man, such class. It also ended with a promise. I love that episode.

Just to bump this thread again, here's a link to the final scene in LAST NIGHT that I mentioned a while ago. It works better if you actually see the movie, but if you can't get your hands on it, here's the climax.

Never has the end of the world looked and sounded so appealing.

Apparently I'm only one of eight people in America who actually really liked "Star Trek: Nemesis," but towards the end when **SPOILER!**
Data sacrificed himself, I was really moved by the fact that this android, this machine who could not know true love or anger or sadness, and wanted more than anything to be human, committed the ultimate humanitarian act to save his friends and crew.

Makes me misty-eyed just thinking about it.

No exclamation point. That's what sold it; he wasn't posturing or threatening. He was just completely calm, controlled, and sincere.

That's what made it so terrifying.

I'd include myself, but I'm not actually in America.

It was very ruthlessly received. It's way better than Generations, IMO.

I have to totally agree with you, Kenobius, on this one. For me it was the soundtrack that made it. I actually got goosebumps just reading your post & remembering that song playing along during the episode. I think I was actually yelling "NO WAY" at the TV by the end of the show. Good call!


I'd rather be a smartass than a dumbass...

Several episodes of The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles (one of the greatest TV series of all time, second to Firefly) have brought tears to my eyes and sent chills down my spine. These include "Perils of Cupid", "Trenches of Hell", and "Oganga, the Giver and Taker of Life".

Most powerful moment.....

Most powerful moment.....

Hmm, I need to think about this one.



Got it!


One of them was in The Matrix: Revolutions, when the Sentries breached through the ceiling in Zion, and all the Walkers were firing their chainguns into the gap, and all the sentries that had been destroyed falling.

Another scene for me was in The Princess Bride.

Inigo Montoya: Where is the Man in Black?
[the Albino doesn't answer]
Inigo Montoya: Fezzik, jog his memory.
Fezzik: [Fezzik strikes the Albino so hard it knocks him out] Sorry, Inigo. I didn't mean to jog him so hard.

The battle of wits from princess bride as well....
Great scene.

And finally, to wrap things up, I really liked the scene in Star Wars Ep. II: Attack of the Clones, where Obi-Wan is fighting Gen. Grievous, and Grievous pulls out the 4 lightsabers.


oh, and before I forget.

"Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die. "





Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!
