Okay this one need to name the movie year and can post clips or photos with quotes for the most memorable movie scenes you've seen. (And I know the Self Appointed Saints and Critics will love to hammer me for making forum threads as they have in the past, but tooo bad!)

100 Years at the Movies: A celebration of the first hundred years. A very cool highlight of the first 100 years of film (1894-1994). Pre-Matrix and digital filmmaking. Which belongs here, (and includes a clip from the FIRST Music video Bob Dylan made doing Subterranean Homesick Blues).

On The Waterfront (1954): Brando is being taken to be rubbed out by his brother for speaking out against a corrupt union boss in New York where he gives this speech a wonderful movie moment.

Blade Runner (1982): Rutger Hauer's unbelievable AD-LIBBED Monologue as Roy Batty in the closing of the film. Batty has seen wonderful things with them which have moved him and come to form him as a person. It's not what we look like, our mannerisms, the colour of our skin that defines us, it's what we see and do that makes us who we are as people. That's a pretty poignant message when you think about it.

Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964): Stanley Kubrick's Black Comedy Masterpiece dealing with a renegade Air Force General deploying through a back door mechanism a nuclear attack on the Soviet Union without the knowledge of his superiors. In this scene Slim Pickens rides a bomb down on target and Steve Buscemi paid homage to this scene in Armageddon in 1998.

Dr. No (1962): Sean Connery introduces himself very cooly and suavely as James Bond for the first time, (Considered the best Bond with Pierce Brosnan in second place).

Reservoir Dogs (1992): In this scene a diamond job goes bad and Michael Madsen brings a cop out of the trunk of his car. And decides to torture the cop named Marvin. Set to the music of Stealer's Wheel's Stuck In The Middle With You, Madsen starts with a little dance carrying a straight razor and proceeds to torture and mutilate the cop. It's not the goriest scene in movie history, it's not the most violent, it's not the most bloody, but holy shit, It's definitely the most disturbing! I can't listen to the song without seeing this scene.

Creator (1985): Dr. Harry Wolper is a character. First he steals Boris, a new student assistant by promising him a co-ed's phone number. Then he hijacks new high tech equipment for his own research, confusing the other university researchers who can't see "the big picture." Harry has a plan, he wants to clone his dead wife. And in this scene Harry says goodbye to his wife for the last time. Very poignant and always brings a tear to my eye.

The Shrimp on the Barbie: Carlos (Cheech Marin) is paid $5,000 if he convinces Alex's (Emma Samms) parents that they would rather she marry anyone/her boyfriend then annoying Carlos. With Carlos and Alex pretending they are to be married, Alex's parents throwing a party for the rich and wealthy friends and family as a sort of engagement party. Carlos disrupts the calm and serene of the party by singing as obnoxiously as possible. This scene was hilarious

Believe it or not, the scene from the Railway Children where Bobbie (Jenny Agutter) runs along Oakworth platform shouting, "Daddy, my Daddy!"
I have seen the film so many times over the past 48 years and it still brings a lump to my throat.

The 1959. Version of The Diary of Anne Frank as so many memorable quotes but one of the last lines spoken by Otto Frank is amazing

The Corsican Brothers starring Cheech and Chong. This scene is really gross so don't watch it if you have a weak disposition but it has had me in stitches ever since the first time I saw it some thirty years ago. Lfunny

The ending of the Quiet Earth

The final trench run in Star Wars (aka Star Wars Ep. IV : A New Hope)

The mother ship looming over Devil's Tower at the climax of Close Encounters of the Third Kind

And the best scene in all of the Star Wars universe:

Quote:

Vader: If only you knew the power of the Dark Side. Obi-Wan never told you what happened to your father.
Luke: He told me enough! He told me you killed him!
Vader: No, I am your father.

This scene from Batman Begins always comes to mind when I'm writing a heroic character, particulary if they don't have super powers.

The scene from Ghostbusters 2 (1989) where the Titanic arrives. Anything that involves Cheech Marin seems to brighten any movie, however small the part.

Kong fighting the T-Rex in the original 1933 King Kong (and the Empire State Building, and a bunch of other scenes)

Tokyo in ruins after Godzilla's first attack in the 1954 Gojira. Clearly, and deliberately, based on pictures of the ruins of Hiroshima and Nagasaki since Godzilla started out as a metaphor for nuclear weapons.

The Battles of Helm's Deep is amazing. It is shot in such a way that no matter how many times I see it, my heart is pounding by the time the first arrow flies.

Sticking with the battle theme, this is one of the most moving scenes I know. The music, the desperation, and the culmination of the theme of having the opportunity to prove one's worth all come together for a harrowing, exciting one last charge. Despite knowing how the movie ends, and how the actual battle ended doesn't diminish how absorbed I am each time I watch this.
