|Favorite Movie And Book Moments|
Just finished reading The Great Gatsby to figure out that I hate the book even more
then I did with my first read. But yeah there's still those moments in books and movies
that are just incredible, like the few listed below. Comment your favs as well if you
|10||Am I just a Clockwork Orange?- A Clockwork Orange|
As the effects of the treatment on Alex are being horifficly forshadowed, Alex relates himself to a
Clockwork Orange. Everyone in the room condemns him.
|9||Ending- Six Sense|
A powerful and quite gripping plot twist that M. night Shamylan was actually capable of writing for
once, I won't spoil the suprise for people who still want to watch the movie. But it is just so
emotionally correct that I needed to put it on here somewhere.
|8||We're all Bokononists- Cats Cradle|
As a religion banned on the island of San Lorenzo, believing Bokononism is punishable by death.
This turns into pure comedy when later in the book, it is revealed that everyone on the island is a
|7||Deep Sleep- The Elephant Man|
After finally finishing his grand alarm clock, John Merrik sits down on his bed and thinks for a
second, before removing the pillows that keep him sleeping upwards. He then falls asleep laying
down, feeling like a normal human for the first time in his life before his tumor kills him in his sleep.
|6||Frienemies- Fox and the Hound|
A movie that begins slightly charming and family friendly transforms into a tale of predudice when
the dog is forced to hunt down his childhood best friend and kill him. A magnificent scene that
reflects what growing up can do to a man.
|5||Clare Quilty's grand finale-Lolita|
Clare Quilty is an insane man. He was so good at talking to Humpert at gunpoint that the reader will
start to ponder who the real monster is. Hell, even when being shot like 7 times he still runs all over
the place shouting critical aqcusations.
|4||Solano's Death- The Godfather|
I'm a sucker for classics, including this scene in which Micheal Corleone kills a mob ringleader and
police cheif in order to avenge his fathers attempted murder. The whole scene is built up perfectly,
and there is thick tension all the way up until the conclusion.
|3||Rosebud- Citizen Kane|
Rosebud is actually the childhood sled of Kane. Kane's last words depict the last time in which he
was happy, a fantastic ending to an incredible film.
|2||Molly Bloom's Soliloquy- Ulysses|
One of the most haunting and detailed portraits of a woman's thoughts ever put on paper. Four
lengthy sentences that are filled with some of my favorite writing ever.
|1||"Hey Boo." - To Kill A Mockingbird|
After being saved by a shadowy figure from the rampant Bob Ewell, Scout is asked who saved her.
She responds by pointing to a dark figure behind a slung open door. The only words said are "hey
boo." And what follows is one of the most beautiful literary/film moments of all time.
|No absolute order, but yeah had some fun thinking about this.|
|10,7,6,3,1 are phenomenal. others are pretty great as well. For novels and short stories H.P. Lovecraft has some excellent moments. |
Pulp Fiction - Samuel L. Jacksons conversation on wicked men.
The Machinist - I don't want to say anything about it. But watch it if you haven't
Se7en - When John Doe reveals himself
Synecdoche, New York
|"you're looking for me."|
|Joshua, pulp fiction and se7en moments are both incredible as well. There are some other moments I'd put on here, but I may do another list later if I'm up for it.|
Then there's the classics like Star Wars, LOTR, hell even Willy Wonka had some incredible moments.
|agreed. those are just a few that came to mind immediately. I've viewed way to many excellent films to think about the really memorable moments haha. |
Older Stephen King work (the novels) have some truly excellent moments. Salem's Lot, It, The Stand are obviously pretty classic. 'It' is probably my favorite among those.
Another movie I thought of is Mulholland Drive. There are some pretty great moments throughout.
|I used to be a huge Stephen king fan, Gods Hand from the Stand was a great scene, and so was The Prom Scene from Carrie. It was one of the scariest novels I've ever read, but it was probably one of the most violent as well. Lol I saw why the tv adaptation was so tame compared to it.|
|The Shining was the only great film adaptation of Stephen Kings work. I do however dig the mini series rendition of The Stand. It leaves out some nice stuff here and there but it was a solid effort. |
|Bat credit card > all of these|
|Oh my god>>> bat credit card|
|"It's a shame she won't live, then again who does"|
Knowing nod at oragami unicorn.
Books - The end of Use of Weapons absolutely floored me.
|Zak, I'll check it out. Haven't actually heard of it.|
Nice mention on 8. Vonnegut rules.
|Last sentence of 1984. Life changing|
|I haven't read 1984 in foreverrr, but the ending sentence was terrific. Gotta read it again soon.|
|pretty sure everyone ever knows what happens in 9 bc every tv show ever spoils it|
still haven't seen it and now idk if i would ever even want to
|This is a great list Hogan and like you I hate Gatsby.|
American literature has blown my mind recently. A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole was the last book I read and to say it's a masterpiece doesn't do the thing justice.
|Holy shit I read that a while ago and it was amazing. But I gave Gatsby a second try because in high school I couldn't stand it. The characters are just so unlivable that it throws the whole entire book off course completely. |
