Brody's line about "we're gonna need a bigger boat" that scene captured the entire feel of the movie for me

My favorite part of that movie was when Socrates called Sigmund Freud a geek.  That was a profound moment.

Best part of Bill & Ted is the mall scene with all of the historical figures going nuts while Beethoven is piano-ing along to Extreme's "Do You Want to Play?"  I mean, come on.

But that whole scene in the cave, the idea of "let the quest end here" and "happy endings can't come in the middle of the story" and the idea of "there are no happy endings because nothing ever ends" continues to stick with me to this day.  Even the ending itself, yeah it seemed like a happy ending on the surface, but my little-kid brain started to think more and more about it.  Was it really a happy ending?  I think that was the moment I started to think deeper about endings in stories, especially the "happily ever after" cop out, because this was a fairy tale that didn't end that way. 

I remember you saying this about the Last Unicorn some time ago. I recently watched it for the first time in years and I agree with you that it is pretty profound.

The most profound to me as a child was definitely the death of Little Foot's mother in The Land Before Time. Though I didn't understand what was going on at the time, I'm astounded to this day on how much I find I empathize with Little Foot's pain, and his struggle to continue despite his tremendous loss. Such a beautiful movie.

As an adult, I think I was probably most affected by Life Is Beautiful, and all the effort the father (whose name I forget) puts into keeping his son happy and positive despite the horrible things that are happening around them.

I think there's still another 9 that can qualify for "awesome movie moments" from just that one you're referencing. x)

BASEketball, when Cooper cuts his middle finger off in front of the one guy for a psychout. The look in his face always makes me laugh...

Akira: The moment from when Kaneda plays the CD in the beginning to when they get caught by the police. AWESOME intro. In fact I'm going to watch it now!

Braveheart: When he dies and his two friends are watching in the crowd. Damn I cry like my childhood dog died all over again when I see that.

Alient: When Ripley goes to rescue Newt. The breathing of the Queen is one of the best movie sound effects.

Star Wars: Trench run. Sends shivers down me spine every time. Best score in any movie.

Caddyshack: When Rodney tells the Asian guy "Alright Want this place is restricted, don't tell them you're Jewish!"

Hellraiser - when Pinhead meets Kirsty for the first time

Evil Dead 2 - When Ash is going crazy and laughing with all the inanimate objects/when they jump on Henrietta trying to get out of the cellar, and the eye flies into Bobbi Jo's mouth. (I've watched that movie a bajillion times)

Phantasm - When the Tall Man grabs Mike at the end. Angus Scrimm is an awesome villain.

Raiders - When Indy is in the chamber with the staff to find the location of the city. It's well shot, the music is perfect and it's just a cool scene.

A Shot in the Dark - The repeated cuts of Clouseau doing something stupid and being rushed to the hospital by ambulance. It cracks me up every time. It's something the Simpsons ripped off, but they did it well.
