I'm loving the Princess Bride nods.   One of my all-time favs.  Best line in the movie is almost a throwaway line.  As Inigo and Fezzik revive Westley on the wall, they walk away (carrying Westley) and they start to discuss plans.  As the scene cuts out...

Fezzik: "Inigo..."
Inigo: "What?"
Fezzik: "I hope we win!"

For the record, Count Rugen (the Six-Fingered Man) is a dead ringer for my college fencing coach.

I loved the scene in Thor where Thor pisses off Odin by saying he's "an old man and a fool". Then this happens:
Odin: You are unworthy of these realms! You're unworthy of your title! You're unworthy!... of the loved ones you have betrayed. I now take from you, your power! In the name of my father, and his father before, I Odin, All-Father, cast you out!
Video:


Also in Thor, the scene where Thor dies. Death by bitchslap![1] Then Jane had to ruin his resurrection with the "Oh... My... God!" line. Who the fuck came up with that?
Video:
 1. Seriously; watch the scene.
The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.
Why settle for normal, when you can be so much more? Why settle for something, when you can have everything?
We choose our own gods.

Nothing is more memorable than the ending scene of a movie where the hero, victorious, walks off in to the sunset...



For those interested in the English translation:


And yes, I totally geeked-out on this movie when I was a kid. ;D

INteresting facts about the movie The Shining:

* all of the words/pages in the "...make Jack a dull boy" were hand-type.  ALL of them.
* "Heeeeere's Johnny!" was ad-libbed
* Jack Nickolson orignially chopped through a fake door, but got so good at it during rehersals they had to use a real door (he was chopping thorugh too fast)
* Religion: institutionalized superstition, period.

Also:
- the kid had no idea what movie he was in.  Kubrick protected him from seeing any of the scary parts.
- the shooting was scheduled to take 17 weeks.  It took a year because Kubrick was insane. He made Shelly Duval do one scene 127 times.
- Duval was so traumatized by Kubrick, her hair started falling out.

This is the scene.  After 127 times, she's not acting.

Any scene that Scarlet Johansson is in. Especially in  Under The Skin. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1441395/?ref_=nv_sr_1
When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle. Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.

Yeah, I know it's probably way too low-brow to be considered among the great scenes in film, but I have always had a soft spot for The Court Jester with Danny Kaye. This bit (among many others) still makes me giggle every time I watch it. It was one of my favorites growing up. Then my own kids just about wore out the video when they were young as well.
