Without Anthony Hopkins’ role in Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal Lecter would have never become the household name he is today. Hopkins would go on to win Best Actor for his portrayal of Lecter which remains one of the greatest villains in the history of cinema. Below is just one of the many great scenes betweenContinue reading “Silence of the Lambs (1991)”
It’s interesting that among the greatest action films both of the 90s and in history, Speed isn’t mentioned enough. Truth is, it’s a fantastic action movie with very few, if any, flaws. You’ve got a great hero in Keanu Reeves, a phenomenal villain in Dennis Hopper, and a charismatic female lead in Sandra Bullock that isn’tContinue reading “Speed – 1994”
One of the most popular scenes of the 90s, and probably Joe Pesci’s most famous scene of all time, this moment from Goodfellas is the perfect representation of the character Pesci plays in the film. He would go on to win Best Supporting Actor for his role as Tommy DeVito. Ray Liotta, Robert DeNiro andContinue reading “Goodfellas (1990)”
There are a lot of great scenes in Good Will Hunting. Quite a few of them are between Matt Damon and Robin Williams but my personal favorite is this one between Damon and Ben Affleck. I always felt Affleck’s performance as Will’s best friend is one of his better performances.

Glengarry Glen Ross is a David Mamet stage play that was adapted into a film starring Jack Lemmon, Ed Harris, Kevin Spacey, and Al Pacino. Baldwin is only in this one scene but it is one of his best and mostContinue reading “Glengarry Glen Ross (1992)”
This scene is fantastic because the characters capture the awe of seeing dinosaurs for the first time perfectly. I saw this film on opening weekend and the looks of people’s wide-eyed faces when this scene came was unforgettable.
This is one of many great scenes from Boyz N the Hood without giving away some of the main points of the film. To this day, I still think this is Ice Cube’s best acting performance, as well as his feature film debut.
Forrest Gump has quite a few great scenes but part of what makes the movie so memorable are the quotes from the main character. Played by Tom Hanks is perhaps his most popular role of all time, I like this cornucopia of scenes with some of the film’s notable quotes in it.
Terminator 2: Judgment Day teamed James Cameron, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Linda Hamilton together again in what is arguably the greatest action movie ever. For those that don’t know, in the original Terminator, a cyborg from the future is sent back to modern times to kill Sarah Connor who will give birth to John Connor. The latter isContinue reading “Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1992)”
