et The Finale of ET Has Been Voted the Most Powerful Movie Moment


The finale of “ET” has been voted the Most Powerful Movie Moment in some new British poll.

#1.)  “ET”,  1982.  ET says goodbye to his friends and heads home in a spaceship.

#2.)  “Toy Story 3”,  2010.  The toys hold hands and face their fate as they edge closer to the incinerator.  (–SPOILER ALERT!  They get saved.)

#3.)  “Rocky”,  1976.  Rocky’s title fight.

#4.)  “Bambi”,  1942.  The death of Bambi’s mother.

#5.)  “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid”,  1969.  Butch and Sundance leap out of their bunker, guns blazing.

#6.)  “The Wizard of Oz”,  1939.  Dorothy opens the door in her black-and-white house and steps into the colorful world of Oz.

#7.)  “Battleship Potemkin”,  1925.  The “Odessa steps” massacre.

#8.)  “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington”,  1939.  The filibuster scene where JIMMY STEWART shouts, quote, “I’m gonna stay right here and fight for this lost cause.”

#9.)  “Network”,  1976.  When the news anchor shouts, “I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore!”

 #10.)  “Miracle in Milan”,  1951.  The final scene when Toto and his friends rise into the sky on brooms.  (–This is an Italian movie you’ve probably never heard of.  It’s not your fault.)  (???)

    I’m in complete agreement considering I still haven’t actually seen “Toy Story 3”. :) However, my all-time favorite gotta-watch-it-at-least-once-every-year film is “Holiday Inn” from 1942. What’s better than Bing Crosby, Fred Astaire, Marjorie Reynolds, and Virginia Dale with those “to die for” silly sidekicks whose names I can’t seem to recall at this moment?!?

    What, not GWTW’s line where Rhett Butler says “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn”?
