Ten on Tuesday - "10 Favorite Movie Moments"

There are so many movies I love, but here are the scenes that came to mind this afternoon: by the way, check out Ten on Tuesday when you get a chance and see what others had to say in answer to this theme!

1. The scene in Dr. Zhivago where Yuri and Lara, (Omar Sharif and Julie Christie), walk into the summer house in the middle of winter, and everything’s covered with ice and snow, and it looks like something magical out of a fairy tale.

2. Atticus Finch’s, (Gregory Peck’s), courtroom speech in To Kill a Mockingbird.

3. The car scene in Wayne’s World where they’re all singing to Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody—hilarious!

4. Jack Nicholson’s speech to Tom Cruise in A Few Good Men—“You want the truth? You can’t handle the truth!”

5. The scene in Pride and Prejudice when Emma Thompson gets the guy—so sweet!

6. Albert Molina, (a.k.a. The Mayor), laying in the storefront window with chocolate all over his face, in Chocolat.

7. The last scene in To Sir, With Love, where Sidney Poitier is saying goodbye to his students.

8. When Christopher Reeve first kisses Jane Seymour in Somewhere in Time-so lovely and romantic.

9. In Dances With Wolves, the battle where the Native Americans come and rescue Kevin Costner from the U.S. Army, where they’d beaten him and chained him up in that wagon--a wonderful moment where you just have to stand up and cheer!

10. The scene in Chinatown when Faye Dunaway is saying to Jack Nicholson, “She’s my daughter, she’s my sister, etc.” Very dramatic and noteworthy!

PS--My hubby's all-time favorite movie moments are 2 scenes in Young Frankenstein -- the one with the revolving bookshelf, (Terri Garr and Gene Wilder--"Put the candle back!"), and the scene where Cloris Leachman is asking Gene Wilder if he wants anything before retiring for the night--"Oval-tine?" He NEVER fails to crack up when we watch that movie, no matter how many times we've seen it!

Great list! I love the scene in Wayne's World. I'm also a big Young Frankenstein and selected that very scene as one of my 10.

yes! I love that scene in Dr. Zhivago. I thought that's what things were really like in Russia in winter when I was a kid.

and the Bohemian Rhapsody scene is awesome!

Oh be still my heart, "Somewhere in Time" is one of my all time favorites, but I had to stop watching it because I can't stop crying after.
I also love Dr Zhivago that was very romantic too.

My favourate flick with Nicholson in it is one flew over the cuckoo's nest. He's a great actor altogether.

Those are all great movies Jann. But I have to say that those two scenes from Young Frankenstein are 2 of the best! That movie never fails to crack Tom & I up either!! It is one of our all time favorites!

My favorite in Dances... is when Kevin and bride are leaving the group at the end, and his friend calls out to him,..."...and , .I will always be your friend"..that whole little scene:)

The Dr. Zhivago scene w/the ice is great, I agree. That movie always made me sad for his sweet wife, and for the' last 'scene with the train
