What are some movie scenes you just HAVE to watch every time they come on?

Like the pool scene in Ace Ventura Pet Detective or
The bar scene in Terminator II or
The Belrock sequence in Lord of the Rings or
The carjacking scene in Nothing to Lose or
The shootout scene in Heat or
The healing scene in The Green Mile.

    Any scene in McCabe and Mrs. Miller that has Leonard Cohen's songs playing in the background.  It made that movie.

    The skating scene in the tunnel of The Hunger where David Bowie slits this skater's throat because he is dying of Vampire hunger.

    Let's see.  So many....

    I gotta find that now for ya...

    Drat, I know it is on here somewhere, but this little movie is so exquisitely, artfully done, that you can take any scene in it and it is endlessly watchable.

    I gotta find Welby and see if I ever discussed this little gem with him.  He would love this, maybe.  It is a tad DARK.  To say the least.

    And then there is Out of Africa.  Don't get me started on Out of Africa.  There are scenes in that movie that still get me.

    And Sophie's Choice

    And My Cousin Vinny

    And Midnight Run

    And Dune

    and Lord of the Rings even. This post was edited by STEVEN NOSFERATU MILLER at July 14, 2018 9:13 PM MDT

    I stopped watching the Catherine Deneuve and David Bowie clip at the 2:20 mark (she closes the box/coffin on who I presume is David Bowie's character) because it's "The Hunger" and I don't like plot spoilers and I've only seen bits and pieces of that movie I believe. Or I was out of my mind when I saw it.

    I came across your answer by chance seeing this question.

    I'm flattered you thought of me.

    That clip is really creepy, Betrayed.  Thanks!

    "Touch of Evil"

    ~ the opening three and a half minutes
    ~ other movies since then have copied the continuous-shot idea but this is the one I always think of
