Some late night thoughts on movies.

I just watched the second chronicles of Narnia movie this evening.  It was okay, but it wasn’t as good as the first one.  This led to a brief discussion on movies, and what makes a good one.  That led to me thinking of some of my favorite movies, and what moments I like about them, including the first Narnia Movie.  Everybody has certain “parts” of movies that is their favorite.  These are some of mine:

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.
Magic moments:  the reveal of the wardrobe, and the closing scene in the middle of the credits.  Everything else was just a decent adventure film.

Signs.
“There’s a monster outside my window.” and the realization at the end.  Other than these two excellent scenes, the movie as a whole was marvelous.

X-Men1.
the opening scene and “What makes you think I’m after you?”

X-Men2.
Magneto escapes, Magneto turns the tables at the end.

The Incredibles.
Mr. Incredible’s back pops back in, Syndrome looks down to see a sports car flying towards him.

Oceans 11.
Practically every scene, but especially the heist.  This is one of my all time favorite movies.

Bandits.
The cops at the drive through.  The brain tumor.  The final robbery.

Spirited Away.
first entering the world, the stink spirit, the train ride.  Another favorite movie, it’s hard to chose favorite moments when there are so many in the beautiful film.

Star trek 2.
“by the book.”

Rainmaker.
Opening monologue, and “this is how the uninsured die.”

Galaxy Quest.
The stompers.

what are some other good movies and their best moments?  I’m too tired to think of more.
