5 Iconic Movie Scenes You Have To Re-Watch

Published

on

Movie directors spoil us with captivating visuals or creative camera angles. In a given film, there’s usually one singular image that audiences love the most. But you sometimes need to pause the movie and re-watch a scene to look at it more closely. Check out these five breathtaking scenes that make cinematic history.

‘E.T.’ Phone Home

Steven Spielberg has never disappointed film viewers. In 1982, he captivated us with E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. During the film’s climactic scene, young Elliot escapes police and government agents with E.T. by bicycle. E.T. eventually uses his telekinetic powers to lift himself and Elliot into the air. As they fly into the sky, their silhouette can be seen against the white moon, creating one of the most beautiful movie shots of all time.

Interrogation Scene In ‘Basic Instinct’

Sharon Stone became a household name in the early 1990s, starring in the 1990 classic Basic Instinct. She stars as Catherine Tramell, a crime fiction author who becomes the prime suspect in the murder of her famous boyfriend. One of the film’s most memorable scenes occurs during her interrogation when Tramell attempts to seduce her interrogator by exposing herself while briefly uncrossing her legs.

Don’t Stare Too Hard At ‘The Fall’

Tarsem Singh’s 2006 film The Fall is an underappreciated movie about two hospital patients, an injured stuntman and a young girl with a broken arm. The stuntman tells mythical stories to the young girl. Her vivid imagination and his current state of mind blur the reality, forcing viewers to pause various scenes to look at the stunning images. However, don’t stare too hard at this scene. The visual could play a trick on your brain.

Marilyn Monroe’s Famous ‘Seven Year Itch’

Marilyn Monroe is still one of the most beautiful actresses of all time. She’s known for a variety of films, but her 1955 romantic comedy The Seven Year Itch is her most famous work. The classic image of Monroe standing above a subway grate, holding her dress down as it flies upwards around her, has become one of the most iconic images in film history. Everyone pauses at this scene to revel in Monroe’s timeless beauty.

Going ‘Psycho’

No one makes a psychological horror quite like Alfred Hitchcock. While his 1960 film Psycho is known for its infamous shower scene, there’s another scene that viewers always pause. At the end of the film, Norman Bates stares directly into the camera. For those who paused the movie, they could see a skull briefly superimposed over his face. It’s a subtle shot, but it reinforces Bates’ association with death, but also his true nature.
