Jack Nicholson as the menacing evil Jack Torrance. In a few moments, Jack will cut down the door with his axe, push his head into the gap and deliver one of the most iconic dialogues of all times. But still, Stephen King hated the movie and the casting of Jack Nicholson as Jack Torrance :|
Yet another movie influenced by the writings of Stephen King. In the words of Red, " Andy crawled to freedom through five hundred yards of shit smelling foulness" and yes, the stagnant water and murky location was indeed tested toxic !
Nothing beats the scene in which 'Italian Stallion' Rocky Balboa runs up the stairs backed by the motivational beats of Bill Conti - Gonna Fly Now and into the hearts of the people of Philadelphia. Many fans have tried to re-create this magic moment at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
Quentin Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs is iconic in every way possible from the slow-mo intro, choice of scintillating soundtracks to the naming of characters. The choice was down between the Mexican Stand-off, Mr. Blonde's slick torture scene and this striking image of Mr. White and Mr. Pink.
Although much of Jurassic Park's iconography emphasizes on the the first sighting of the menacing grin-toothed awesomeness called T-rex, the scene that gave me the chills as a child was the raptors approaching the kids hiding in the kitchen. Terrifying....
Ash Williams everybody! The hero of the undead and the protagonist of Sam Raimi's legendary independent horror movie, The Evil Dead. Bruce Campbell who played Ash is easily one of the most popular and notorious cult figures of modern horror genre. Every scene with Ash gives you the goosebumps but this image is creepily awesome. Armed with a sawed-off shotgun and weaponised with a chainsaw for his missing right arm, you can see him roaming around S-Mart when he's not busy getting possessed. Groovy!
Steven Spielberg's 1982 classic of a boy befriending a creature from outer space and helping him return home is everybody's favorite movie. If there's any image that's easily recognizable, then it's the scene of Elliott cycling his way through the park with E.T and into the air and flying across the night sky.
This 1954 japanese movie, Godzilla is the grand-father of all monster set-pieces influenced Kaiju movies. The story of a prehistoric monster that is born out of repeated nuclear testing around the Pacific, has influenced many movies and set the right chords for future films to re-imagine them in every way possible.
Morpheus: He is the one...
One does not simply drive through Mordor.
B'coz nobody puts this gif in the corner.
Say hello to my gif!
Scarface is a golden example of why movies continue to instill, influence and have a vibrant effect on pop culture. From Tony Montana's accent, the hip-hop Miami of 80s, cocaine to F-bombs; every aspect of the movie have been re-attempted in numerous movies, video games and parodies. Al Pacino was glorious and so was his dialogues.
Dialogues aplenty and hard to stop laughing. Never has death been so funny. It was either this scene or Dude crashing into the dumpster when he's DUI, smoking weed and burnnnn!
No particular scene for me to point out but the last scene when the music pops up as the buildings explode is damn awesome. And also I'm more of David Fincher's Zodiac fan so...yeah
Every scene of Marlon Brando as The Godfather, as the Don, as Don Vito Corleone is iconic.
Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back: Probably the most iconic moment in sci fi history...
