Favorite Moments in Film

After watching Noah Baumbach's "Kicking and Screaming," I decided to make a list of some of my favorite scenes in film. While this film will not be considered a favorite, the last scene, which may have been less than a minute long, was absolutely beautiful.

In no order:

1. "Kicking and Screaming" - *spoiler* The end scene when Grover tells Jane that he wishes they were older.
2. "Cinema Paradiso" - *spoiler* When the main character finds the reel of all the kissing scenes strung together.
3. + 4. "Rushmore" - The collage of all of Max's activities. Also the dinner scene after Max's play.
5. "Love Actually" - When Hugh Grant dances
6. "Le Faubleux Destin d'Amelie Poulain" - When Amelie sends Nino on her blue-arrow scavenger hunt.
7. "Wall-E" - The entire first 30 - 45 minutes.
8. "When Harry Met Sally" - The lunch scene. ("I'll have what she's having")
9. "Il Buono, Il Brutto, Il Cattivo" - The rapid close ups between the three before they have their shootout.
10. "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" - The Siren scene
11. "The Full Monty" - *spoiler* The stripping scene in the end, of course.
12. "Ghostbusters" - The Stay Puft Marshmallow man
13. "Moulin Rouge" - Spectacular Spectacular song
14. "Jerry Maguire" - "Show me the money! Show me the money!" scene
15. "Raiders of the Lost Ark" - Indie swiping his hat from under the closing-wall thing. Classic.
16. "8 1/2" - Guido's harem
17. "Almost Famous" - "I am a golden god!"
18. "Office Space" - Kicking the shit out of the copy machine.
19. "There Will Be Blood" - The entire final scene
