    The best part of that movie was seeing Vader in full-on badass mode.

    I usually don't remember all the scenes, but in a couple of movies I liked:
    "Troy" when the Trojan scout inadvertently discovers the Greek fleet tucked into the little cove, then is killed a few seconds later.
    "Independence Day" the first time they reveal the aliens.

    No. 1 ... from "The Taking of Pelham 1-2-3" (original version) ... when one of the suspects sneezes as the cop leaves his apartment.
    No. 2 ...from "The Taking of Pelham 1-2-3" (original version) ... when the cops realize, with the hijackers in the subway, they wouldn't realize whether the ransom money made it to the necessary spot on time.

    Meant to go looking for that one when the thread first started but never got around to it. Well done.

    That scene, in particular, will now show kids who watch the whole series in order, WHY Darth Vader is supposed to be so terrifying.

    In the original trilogy, it always seemed that Vader's reputation was inflated. Especially in ANH, Ep. 4, in which he gets bossed around and shit-talked by the assistant-Grand Moff guy.

    Tears are flowing too freely to fully appreciate how Ray embraces his glove after he receives the first catch. It’s a detail I never noticed until I watched this scene on a smartphone.

    I'm trying to think of a moment like these in a comic book movie. Maybe the scene with T'Challa and Killmonger at the end of Black Panther. The scene with the Avengers assembling in Avengers, especially Captain America saying, "Hulk....smash."

    Maybe the "Puny god" scene?

    The airport battle in Civil War?
