Esta é uma das cenas memoráveis do filme Once Upon a Time in West, de Sergio Leone. Este é um filme rico em cenas que ficarão para sempre na memória de quem o visualizou, sendo sem dúvida um dos filmes melhores westerns de sempre (juntamente com The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, é o meu preferido).

Curiosidade: Foi ao descrever esta cena que Sergio Leone conseguiu convencer Henry Fonda a aceitar o papel do malévolo Frank.

Uma homenagem de Tarantino ao Anime. E que homenagem!!! Tarantino tem o excelente hábito de pegar nas coisas e torná-las espectaculares. Eu sou fã de anime e já vi inúmeras séries e na minha modesta opinião este segmento é do melhor que já vi.
Esta cena encaixa-se no filme de forma perfeita e admirável.

Long live Tarantino...

"Batty: I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die. "

The Sound of Music (1965) é um dos musicais mais reputados da história do cinema. É um clássico. Quase toda a gente viu o filme, e quem não viu conhece, com certeza, a música. Esta é a cena que que abre o filme e uma das mais célebres.
Não sou propriamente um fã de musicais mas, neste caso, tenho que dar o braço a torcer e admitir que até simpatizo com este.

O Site Not Nefteri fez um top 10 dos melhores discursos e monólogos do cinema. De seguida são apresentados os filmes escolhidos e as respectivas quotes e vídeos:
1. Robert Duvall, Apocalypse Now (1979)
You smell that? Do you smell that? Napalm, son. Nothing else in the world smells like that. I love the smell of napalm in the morning. You know, one time we had a hill bombed, for twelve hours. When it was all over I walked up. We didn't find one of 'em, not one stinkin' dink body. The smell, you know that gasoline smell, the whole hill. Smelled like... victory. Someday this war's gonna end... (ver aqui)

2. Jack Nicholson, A Few Good Men (1992)
You can't handle the truth! Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Who's gonna do it? You? You, lieutenant Weinberg? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago, and you curse the Marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know - that Santiago's death, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives.

3. Marlon Brando, On The Waterfront (1954)
Remember that night in the Garden? You came down to my dressing room and you said 'kid, this ain't your night. We're going for the price on Wilson'... You was my brother, Charlie. You shoulda looked out for me a little bit so I wouldn't have to take them dives for the short-end money. I coulda had class. I coulda been a contender. I coulda been somebody, instead of a bum. Which is what I am. Let's face it.

4. Samuel L Jackson, Pulp Fiction (1994)
The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you. (ver aqui)

5. Michael Douglas, Wall Street (1987)
The point is, ladies and gentleman, is that greed - for lack of a better word - is good. Greed is right. Greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit. Greed, in all of its forms - greed for life, for money, for love, knowledge - has marked the upward surge of mankind. And Greed - you mark my words - will not only save Teldar Paper but that other malfunctioning corporation called the USA. (ver aqui)

6. Peter Finch, Network (1976)
I don't have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. It's a depression. Everybody's out of work or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickel's worth; banks are going bust; shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter; punks are running wild in the streets, and there's nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do, and there's no end to it. (ver aqui)

7. Ewan McGregor, Trainspotting (1996)
Choose life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family, Choose a big television, Choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players, and electrical tin openers. Choose good health, low cholesterol and dental insurance. Choose fixed-interest mortgage repayments. Choose a starter home. Choose your friends... Choose your future. Choose life. (ver aqui)

8. Clint Eastwood, Dirty Harry (1971)
I know what you're thinking. Did he fire six shots or only five? Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I've kinda lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya punk? (ver aqui)

9. Richard E Grant, Withnail and I (1987)
What a piece of work is a man, how noble in reason, how infinite in faculties, how like an angel in apprehension, how like a God! The beauty of the world, paragon of animals; and yet to me, what is this quintessence of dusk. Man delights not me, no, nor women neither, nor women neither. (ver aqui)

10. Mel Gibson, Braveheart (1995)
You have come to fight as free men, and free men you are. What will you do with that freedom? Will you fight? Aye, fight and you may die, run and you'll live. At least a while. And dying in your beds many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days from this day to that for one chance, just one chance to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they'll never take our freedom!

Apanhando a onda do post anterior, era impossível não colocar uma das cenas mais marcantes de Apocalypse Now.

Kilgore: Smell that? You smell that?
Lance: What?
Kilgore: Napalm, son. Nothing in the world smells like that.
Kilgore: I love the smell of napalm in the morning. You know, one time we had a hill bombed, for 12 hours. When it was all over, I walked up. We didn't find one of 'em, not one stinkin' dink body. The smell, you know that gasoline smell, the whole hill. Smelled like... victory. Someday this war's gonna end...

Assim como todo o filme, esta cena constitui um dos grandes momentos da história do cinema. Francis Ford Coppola conseguiu criar esta excelente obra baseado-se no romance de Joseph Conrad - Heart of Darkness. (O Livro, O Filme).
A forma como a componente visual está conjugada com a sonora é perfeita. A música escolhida por Coppola foi Ride of the Valkyries do genial compositor alemão Richard Wagner. Cena memorável, sem dúvida.

Life of Brian (1979) é uma da mais conhecidas e divertidas comédias dos Monty Python. Vi o filme hoje e gostei bastante. Acho que estava muito à frente e é algo controverso para a época em que foi feito.
Mas falando do razão de ser deste post, Always Look on the Bright Side of Life é uma música de Eric Idle (o crucificado da esquerda, que canta a música na cena final do filme) e foi feita de propósito para este filme, tendo posteriormente se tornado num clássico da música. Este é, na minha opinião, um grande momento musical e cinematográfico e como tal merece um lugar nas "best movie themes", tal como nas "cenas memoráveis" do blog.
