I didn't read the book but the movie is very strong, disturbing in some scenes but a strong movie.

Watched this tonight. Man, this movie is rough. Very good, but you couldn't even make that story up. I was surprised that it took the turn that it did.

For me, it's certain scenes that still resonate. The first time I ever saw the opening credits for "Mean Streets" I was literally slack-jawed. The home movie montage in the middle of "Raging Bull" always, always leaves me in tears. And for complete nostalgia: the helicopter scene in "Superman." My parents brought me to see it when I was four. I remember the theater erupting.

Rocky IV -- "if i can change, you can change. everyone can change."

toward the end of the Drago fight when Adrian goes, "You're gonna do it!" still gives me goosebumps (0).

Yup. Followed by my two personal favorite scenes: the fingers through the grate and the incredible final shot.

I'm surprised nobody's mentioned "The Mission". I loved that movie, and Ennio Morricone's score is beautiful.

Anyone ever see Baraka? Just 65mm footage set to music. Very moving and thought-provoking. Also the remastered Blu Ray looks amazing and is regularly used as a reference disc to show off home theaters.

If we're talking powerful scenes, the most faithful thing to the mood of the comic book in the Watchmen movie was the opening montage. That was really powerful storytelling.
