Name your favorite spectacular "money shot" scenes from movies (examples provided) - Page 4

post #91 of 98
Thought of a few more:
  • Although it's now a joke, the Blair Witch Project close-up-face "I'm so scared" monologue.
  • Riding the bomb in Strangelove
  • The scene in Platoon (the one on the cover)

And I can't let this thread go on any longer without these two images, which is a toss up to which one is more money (but I'm leaning towards the shark taking out an airplane):

Thought of a few more....I haven't read the whole thread so I apologize if these are repeaters.....

-You can't handle the truth! (A Few Good Men)
-Say it like you got a pair! (Full Metal Jacket)
-I like these, they're like MacArthur's (A Soldier's Story)
And last but not least,
-Hi, my name's Dori and I've never eaten a fish tied with The sea monkey has my money (Finding Nemo)

Granted, these technically are not "money shots" as I would truly define them but great ones none the less.

I suspect the impact of this is lost on those who weren't around to see the original theatrical release. This was so new and so different and literally changed film forever. And IMO is truly second only to the entrance of Darth Vader shortly thereafter. A never seen before image like that on the big screen as a 7,8, 9, 10, 11, 50 year old?! Wow!

Yeah I suspect so. There's a neat episode of That 70's Show where they all go see it and their reaction is pretty much like mine was....jaws on the floor.

It was also pretty cool when Kubrick did it in 2001 ASO, with the Discovery-1 spaceship.

Up has one of my favorite lines: When the old man wants to leave the dog and the boy exclaims, "But he's a talking dog!" Makes me smile everytime I think of it.
