Re: Favorite TV moments huh?

That's the stuff.

I was kind of hoping I'd hear from more folks on this, but hey... [shrug]

Re: Favorite TV moments huh?

I have been having some trouble with this. I can think of a few movie moments that I loved in either a "Hell YEAH!" way or an heavy emotional impact.

One that makes me cry every time I think about it is when the Iron Giant says to himself "I'm Superman" closes his eyes and...

Ack, I am tearing up.

I don't know why that scene affects me so, but damn. I can't watch that movie and even attempt to be manly. : )

Movie, TV, whatever.

Movie moments are good, too. Of the three I posted, one was actually from film, so...

Never saw Iron Giant, though I've heard many good things about it.

Re: Favorite TV moments huh?

I've been wracking my brain to come up with something for you. These may not be exactly what you were looking for, but...
From Film:
1) At the end of "She's Having a Baby," Elizabeth Perkins' character has to have an emergency C-section, during which her husband is forced to wait in the waiting room. Kate Bush's "This Woman's Work" plays while they show several flashback scenes and Kevin Bacon just cries. It gives a really great impression of him reliving those moments. When he walks into the room where his wife is recovering, he doesn't know if the baby has survived, and she says, "You have a son, babe. We have a boy." Kevin Bacon's whole body seems to instantly change and he starts crying again, only now they are tears of joy. It gets me every time.
2)"My name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die!"
"Offer me everything I ask for."
"All that I have and more. Please."
"I want my father back, you son of a bitch."
3)The moment that Cary Grant realizes that Deborah Kerr's character hasn't gotten up off the couch because she is crippled and that's why she didn't meet him at the top of the Empire State Building 6 months earlier in "An Affair to Remember."
From TV:
1) On MASH: the whole episode that was done from the point of view of a wounded man with a trachiotomy tube; the scene from the night-mare episode where Winchester is dressed as a magician and keeps doing parlor tricks while a wounded man on a gurney writhes and dies in front of him; the scene when Colonel Potter's horse is returned after being 'stolen' by the Korean former-Colonel so that he could ride a horse one last time in his uniform.
2) On BtVS: Giles' murder of the man whose body is inhabited by Glory. "No, Buffy won't kill you, she's can't kill a non-demon, but I can." or something like that.
3) On ER: Carrie Weaver's discovery of the stabbed and nearly dead Carter and Kellie Martin's character.
