I'm glad someone mentioned the movie Waterloo and Rod Steiger's performance of Napoleon. I wish he had made a whole series of movies on the Napoleonic wars.

I found the bits with Nappy and Wellington a bit dull personally. It was the battle scenes filmed on such an epic scale that really stood out for me. It's a shame that they decided to throw in the pyrotechnic fireball effects for the cannon rounds during the charge of the Scots' Greys though.

Sorry, has to say this is:



I remember how brutal this was when Saving Private Ryan first was in the theaters. It was a whole new level of realism and graphicness beyond what we had seen before.

Good stuff. Love that scene too Semmern. I also love Panzer's but through to the end with the music and as they make it into Fort Sumter. So many good ones out there.

I won't (and don't know how to) add clips:

1) Roxanne Pallett's nude/mucky scene in Lake placid 3. jawdrop jawdrop

2) Roxanne Pallett's nude/mucky scene in Wrong Turn 6 :Last resort. jawdrop

3) Nikki Sanderson's 'nude' scene in Boogeyman 3. thumbsup

Have I said how much I hate bubbles in baths in which Nikki Sanderson is lying naked?

I won't post a link because you have all seen it, and because, well, I'm lazy....but....

A New Hope, when Luke is standing outside the farm at dusk watching the twin suns of Tatooine Setting over the dune sea, with John Williams score rising and falling behind it all. That scene represents everything I love about cinema.

From 2:20 to 6:30, in Dolby surround and wide screen stereo, where
you can hear the pebbles clatter from the waves crossing from one
side of the screen to the other, full volume HQ audio (and of course
understanding the context in the arc of the story):

"Last of the Mohicans" is brilliant in its entirety but that final confrontation along the mountainside always gives me goosebumps.
