What is the most remarkable “single” movie scene ever filmed? There are so many cinematic gems that this is a challenging question. However, after someone polled the internet, these were the top-voted responses.
“The baptism scene in The Godfather” shared one. “Michael not only renounced Satan, but he also settled all the family business that day.” “My good friend is a pastor, and he says that scene is stuck in his head every time he baptizes a baby,” another confessed.
“The lobby shootout in The Matrix,” shared one. “It’s so well-edited, and the visual effects are amazing. That entire movie was just a game-changer.” Another clarified, “In 1977, Star Wars brought special effects to another level. That opening scene with the star destroyer flying overhead was the dawn of a new era.”
One stated, “The USS Indianapolis monologue from Jaws, Robert Shaw’s delivery, is just chilling.” “Robert Shaw was excellent in everything he ever did. He’s like a Hemingway novel with arms and legs,” another replied.
“The night vision sequence in The Silence of the Lambs is excellent suspense,” said one. “I remember seeing it in the theatre. There was so much tension. A woman screamed when he reached his hand towards her face in the film.”
“Goodfellas, ‘You’re a funny guy.’ You could cut that tension—Great scene,” one replied. “Joe Pesci improved that scene too, and Ray Liotta had no idea about it, so his reactions were genuine,” another added.
