    We have a couple really good movie threads going, so I thought I would start a third.

    So what is your favorite movie scene since 2000? Bonus points if CGI is not used.

    - Just love the pacing and cinematography of this scene. Not my favorite film, but just wonderful film making for these six minutes. Plus, it really forshadows the rest of the film.

    Get off my lawn, from Grand Torino ... this movie instantly became one of my all-time favs.

    There's plenty of comedies I could point out with ease, but I'll go with something more dramatic: The final scene in "Garden State" when Zac Braff leaves the plane to go back to a crying Natalie Portman, all while Frau Frau is playing "Let Go" in the background. Great scene, great movie.

    Do we really have to post 2000? That's going to take forever.

    The first 20 minutes of Up. Just fantastic storytelling.

    End. Of. Thread.

    (Ok, I know I'm wrong. But that sequence is so damn good and I've always wanted to type that).

    Royal Tennenbaums shaving scene. I love how it broke the tension with Dudley's "Who?"

    Or Chigurh coin flip in NCFOM.

    Children of Men

    Clive Owen making his way back into the building to find the mom and baby, then escorting them out as the raging war zone goes silent upon realizing that a baby has been born. Always get a shiver at that. And how they were able to orchestrate that long continuous shot is beyond me. They even get a few flecks of blood on the lens, and it magically goes bye-bye.
