Immortal Moments: Minutes in Movies

I am, as most know, a great lover of movies.  I enjoy movies of all types.  Yet, there are those moments when one line, one action holds me spellbound and I cannot ever forget that line nor that moment.

With the coming of “The Hobbit” and a resurgence of LOTR, I am reminded of one such moment.  It may, perhaps, be THE moment for my movie career, though others might not see it as such.  It is that one line in LOTR in which Gandalf is standing on a stone bridge and, in order to save his friends from the demon, refuses to yield and his words,

“You Shall Not Pass!”

will resonate me with deep emotion and near-tears.  It did so when I read it and, in one of the few times I have ever seen, it also invoked the same emotion in the film.  Today is a short speech for me, but I will share this moment with you.  Those of LOTR following already know the scene:  watch it for remembrance.  Those who do not follow LOTR: watch it and feel the thrill of someone truly sacrificing himself for friends and a cause.

How about you?  Is there such a moment in book or film that sends your heart sailing more than any other?

Namaste,

Scott
