Things that make you tingle

Tonight AMC played The Karate Kid. I have seen it countless times; but at the end–when Daniel is up in the crane and they cut to Mr. Miyagi and he gives that quick little nod–I still get chills. It is amazing how much a movie scene can move you.

Anyone have a movie scene that still creates a reaction even after several viewings?

    Here are a few for the endings:

    The Natural. Homerun, with the batboy’s bat, wins the game, sparks flying. Doesn’t get any better.

    Pure Country. Him singing the song, she’s flooded with emotion, her brother has the big misty eyes. I read a story that he would not kiss her at the end because it would be considered cheating on his wife.

    Rocky IV. Love how he takes down the big Russian. Makes me want to stand up and cheer everytime. However, could have done without the speech about, "if I can change and you can change, then the whole world can change."

    Here is one for two scenes during the movie that haunt me everytime I hear about the movie: American History X.

    The Sandlot….

    "The Jet Stole Home!!! The Jet Stole Home!!

    Apollo 13, when they finally get communication backt to Houston. I cry every time.

    "Andrew, you gotta be number 1! Win, Win, WIN!!!"

    Lots of good scenes in that movie. I love it when she meets him in the closet, but the best would have to be when "the basketcase" walks out after her makeover.

    Dead Poets Society, when Todd stands on his desk and says, "Oh Captain, my captain." Gets me every time.

    Wow! How in the world did I not list that first. It is the greatest movie moment ever!

    I have to admit I have this secret desire that one day I will get fired and someone will stand up for me by saying that.

    When I forget how great my job is I watch that movie and it always inspires me. I love the scene when Mr. Keeting goes to get on to the guy for the "phone call from God." I find myself in that role many times. Just reminding young men that there are limits.
