Castaway I'm sorry Wilson part. He couldn't save him. Hanks was a brilliant actor in this movie. And the music...the music especially in this scene still makes me cry.

I also love the scene "When She Loved Me" from Toy Story 2. Makes me think twice about the toys I left behind. Another tearjerker.

I have a few more, but those are the two that came to mind.

The final 10 minutes or so of "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas." I just watched this last night on Netflix (they are removing it on January 1). Wow... no way did I see that ending coming...

This is one of my top most favorite "powerful" scenes of all time.

My second most favorite, which I can't find, is of Victor Mature, as Demetrius, yelling at Richard Burton in disgust in the scene right after the crucifixion. I don't care what he or anyone else said; that man could act!

My choice is from a movie that is on cable as I'm posting this--the first 10 minutes of "Saving Private Ryan.' What is equally powerful is its ending.

One of the best movies ever made IMHO.

First five minutes and last five minutes of Melancholia. Bugged me for weeks.

Sad though I was for the ending, I was also snickering at the dad. Quid pro quo.

I don't think there is anything at all funny or humorous about that entire situation. For all you know, he was one of the ones who was operating under duress.

One of my favorite scenes from probably my most favorite movie of all time, as timeless now as it ever was.
