    Pretty much the whole of The Blues Brothers. I even have them as my desktop wallpaper. :D Nothing garish; it's quite subtle:

    That scene was when I realised that "Black Comedy" didn't necesarily mean "haha funny". Top movie.

    Anything from Pulp Fiction is a great scene, surely? Tell me again about the hash bars...

    Jack Nicholson "Where's Johnny?" The Shining.

    Jack Nicholson "Just your average horny little Devil" The Witches of Eastwick

    At the start of the Italian Job, Matt Munro singing, and then the boys meet the Mafia led by Raffaele Vallone who push the fast cars off the mountain side and who says "Well gentlemen...it's a long walk back to England...and it's that way".

    Michael Caine at the end of the film "Hang on a minute lads, I've gotta great idea..." The Italian job

    Michael Douglas interviewing Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct.

    Michael Douglas in Falling Down the whole film.

    Roger Moore in The Man with the Golden Gun when he drives the red Torino over the rickety bridge with the yanky tourist cop as passenger.

    Sean Connery and Ursula Undress on the beach in Dr No.

    North by Northwest where Cary Grant is waiting out in the middle of nowhere for some one who doesn't exist and is being watched, buzzed and shot at by the light aircraft.

    Omar Sharif riding from afar up to Peter O'Toole and Anthony Quinn who are drinking at his well. Also when Lawrence is promoted to Major and is invited by Jack Hawkins into the officers club for a drink still dressed in his robes. Lawrence of Arabia.

    Car chase with Gene Hackman driving under the subway in French Connection.

    "Broadsword calling Danny Boy" Where Eagles Dare, the cable car scene where Richard Burton jumps from one to t'other.

    Sir Lawrence Olivier saying to Dustin Hoffman "Is it safe? Is it safe?" In Marathon Man.

    A Fistful of Dollars, the cemetary scene where Eli Wallach, Lee Van Cleef and Clint Eastwood are trying to find out which grave the loot is buried in but they each only have one piece of info to find the headstone among thousands.

    The cheeky trucker gets his come uppance in Thelma and Louise.

    Life of Brian the whole film.

    Ice Cold in Alex where they come out the desert and order the beers in the officers' mess.

    Blues Brothers scenes where they visit the Sisters at the start where Elwood says "We're on a mission from God" and then toward the end where the Nazis jump off the bridge to avoid being run over by the motor home be driven straight toward them by Jake and Elwood. Class.

    The stink god scene in Spirited Away, from its entrance to the bit where all the gunk comes out and the god leaves.

    And the rest of the film.

    When John Connor and the T800 are in the middle of rescuing Sarah Connor from Pescadero Mental Hospital and are being chased by the T1000.

    My favourite specific moment, is when the T100 comes up to the steel railings security door, after a moment, he moves through it, but just as he has passed through, his gun catches and he has to wriggle it to get through.

    Excellent attention to detail.

    Saw Scott Pilgrim..... yesterday, theres a tiny background bit near the end that is almost irelevant to the rest in the way coins fall onto the floor in the final night club fight scene, clever, funny and attention to detail. I like bits like that where the director doesn't need to do it but still does.

    Star wars opening sequence as the star destroyer comes overhead, most of the rest of star wars.

    6th sense: I'm ready to share my secret, I see dead people. still makes me shiver.

    the close encounters bit where Richard Dreyfuss is shown a picture of the mountain and says 'yeah I've got one just like it in my living room'

    Jason Bourne (Bourne Supremacy) telling Pam Landy to "get some rest" because she looked tired, whilst he watched her from across the street from another building. The whole of the CIA is after him and he's in a building next to the CIA outpost. Eat your heart out 007.

    Why spend an extra thousand quid on a titanium frame when any advantage is lost by the weight of a flask of soup and a cheese sandwich ?

    Hmm, for another day lol.

    For me its Sexy Beast.

    The bit where Don (Ben Kingsley) is telling Gal (Ray Winstone) He will do one last job
    How does a guy who's Played Ghandi play such a convincing Psychopath.

    Winstone's got to have a foot and 6 stone on the guy but your still convinced Kingsley would f**k him up in a second no wonder his Misus uses him to re tile the pool.

    Classic. Tinie Tempah's even used the scene as a start to a track.

    Speaking of Winstone, Scum, when he puts the pool balls in a sock and whacks Daniels.

    great film - kingsley just keep repeating one word - is it "yes"? - until winstone agrees.

    You're both right.
    Bourne does the same thing twice.
    The first time is when he's watching Landy and sees the girl stood next to Landy and again later at the end of the film when he's watching Landy and tells her she looks tired.
