Live Poll: Most Intense Movie Scenes

There are some movie scenes that make you hold your breath because it's so intense... you feel like you're there... you feel like excited for that and when you get that feeling you already know you'll never forget that scene. These moments are kinda cinematographic pleasure.

Which one of these movie scenes left you more amazed?

List: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls026113818/

P:s: I am not particularly including shootings on this poll.
I wanted to include the "Strudel Scene" in Inglourious Basterds and the "Coin Toss" in No Country for Old Men but i have not found images of these scenes so i had to request to add the images of these scenes on the Contribution. When i these images are aproved i will include on this list.

José,

I like the concept behind your poll. However, I would like to see comments from other poll authors and users on your choices for intense scenes. I hope they may be able to supply other scenes that meet your criteria.

Dan,

It's very similar to this poll >>> https://www.imdb.com/poll/onTc41AGX3A/ 

Maybe Jose could remove the overlapping options and make a part 2? I wouldn't mind that.

The beating scene and the death of Jesus, both intense.But the scene with Judas Iskariot, when he turns nuts and
commits suicide is intense, too.

I did not see the movie so I had to go to YouTube to see this scene and it's definitely intense that you can almost feel the lashing that the character is taking. Very uncomfortable for the viewers to watch because it is inhuman and to know that this scene really happened in reality and that Jesus suffered it is really very sad.
Great suggestion and certainly will be in this poll.

Thanks for your contribution.

I got a few scenes in the head, which felt pretty intense for me. But warning: There are a few spoilers ahead. If you don't know a movie and read the name, don't look at the sentence below. It could spoil you if you haven't seen the movie.



Saw:

The end of 'Saw'.


The Truman Show:

Truman's last time saying goodbye in 'The Truman Show'.


Robocop:

The first demonstration of a mechanical cop in 'Robocop', making hackmeat on the presentationtable by a Robot using two guns on a ceo.


The Sixth Sense:

Dr. Malcolm Crowe discovering he's not alive anymore at 'The sixth sense'.


Saving Private Ryan:

The landing in the Normandy


Ghost Ship:

The intro-scene on deck. The body-cutting cable.


Shutter Island:

When Teddy Daniels realises, he killed his wive and that he is an inmate in real.


Shawshank Redemption:

When Andy gets out of Jail and the director kills himself.


Buried (R.Reynolds):

The whole movie.


Hannibal:

The dinner Scene.


Scream:

The psychopath's revealing scene.


Interstellar:

The spaceship-docking-scene, after Dr. Man went nuts. When Cooper docks the turning shuttle on.


2010:

The Space-ballet.


Phone-Booth:

Many Scenes, but specially the one, when Stu Shepard reveals the truth about his lousy life and yells at the shooter.

Great Suggestions, I have watched six of this movies that you suggested and i'm kind of surprised how I didn't remember to put some of this scenes that you suggested on this poll and the funny thing is that when I see you sentence below I immediately visualize that scene. 
This is why is important to hear people opinions, because some times they catch something that you missed. ;D


You suggested many scenes which made it very difficult to select and leave others out ... Of the fourteen suggestions and I decided to include five, which are:

The Interstellar docking scene definitely needs to be here.

The Truman Show last goodbye,I remember when I saw that he was so nervous about what truman would do if he would have the guts to embrace the real world or if he would continue to live in the False Reality.

Saving Private Ryan Omaha Beach was intense for sure, I know I said I'm not particularly including shootings or war battle, but this scene is more than that, it's about survival, suffering, fear... everything which I think goes through each one's mind in these situations. I don't know how i forget to put this scene, probably it will be on of the favorites of this poll.

Hannibal's dinner scene was a little scary that even i felt goosebumps. Nice pick.

Shutter Island  when Teddy saw the atrocity his wife did and in deep depression kills his wife, was one of the most touching scenes.
 
PS: on the Se7en scene unfortunately I can not put it in this poll because there is a similar poll called "Tense Movie Moments" by Kyle Perez and in his poll, this precise scene is there and we agree that my poll will be like a sequel and so I'll include other scenes to keep the sequence.


Thanks for your contribution.

The end of 'Saw' is one of the most stunning moments in horror-film-history. I could write some lines, but if you haven't seen it, I don't want to spoil you. The end scares one to the bones.

A few other moments: (Spoilers)


'Armageddon':
The Harry Stamper dying-scene.


'Up':
At ~12 Minutes the entire-life-of-Carl-and-Ellie-scene. The whole audience needed tissues, so me too.

'Star wars episode VI':
The killing of the emperor for rescuing the own son. The struggling way back to the bright side, destroying the evil and save Luke.

'Alien':
The chestbirth of an alien.

'1984':
The rat-scene.

'Fahrenheit 451°':
The burning-booklover-scene.

'Equilibrium':
The death of Mary O'Brian.

'Gattaca':
The Revealed swimming-scene at the end.

'Die Hard':
The end of Hans Gruber.  ;)

'Primal Fear':
The ending, revealing the truth about Aaron and Roy.

'Schindlers List':
The Moment, when Schindler broke down at the end, realizing the whole truth and how he underestimated it before.

'Das Boot':
The coming-home-scene of the U-96.

'Silence of the lambs':
The elevator-scene and the 'resurection' of the officer, the other officer spread like an angel at the Lecter-cage.

'The Revenant':
The bear-fight!

'The silence of the lambs':
The truth about Clarice and the lambs in an intensive dialog between Clarice and Doctor Lecter in his cage. (But she couldn't even safe one lamb. And Clarice went to Orphanage, while her lamb was slaughtered.) That moment is film-historically one of the most intense. Summary: Lecter-scenes in his prison-cells/cages.

I think putting "Saw" is a bit unfair because it's a horror movie and the purpose of this genre is to scare the audience. It's practically their only goal, so the most I'd like to put in is a psychological thriller or crime.

Up, Black Swan, Requiem for a Dream they all have a fantastic scene that I classified like tense but more on the touching way, i don't know if you understand what i tried to said... I'm working in another poll and a put the scene of the Final Act of Black Swan there and i'm requested an image of the tragic end of Requiem for a Dream, so i have to wait until IMDB aproved my request. 


About the others movies:

The Revenant,
the bear-fight it was a really intense scene, nice suggestion. 

The Silence of the Lambs , Hannibal escape it was really excting for me, these scene was great. I was really nervous about that scene.

Die Hard, Hans Gruber death was really great also, the tension and the laughs before Mclane shoots Gruber make the scene even more exciting, I was like.. this guy is a badass and yeah when he shoots and Gruber struggles to not fall of the skyscraper was a pretty intense scene, I got really exciting with that badass move.

These are the three scenes that i will included on this poll suggestion.


You have really good suggestions, I can't remember even twenty intense moments of the movies I've saw and you give me almost thirty suggestions just only today kkkk ;D
[i'm not reclaiming :D, i'm really glad for the help and for your suggestions]

I think that you should created a list based on this concept like a Part III with the others suggestions that you mentioned. This will be a great poll suggestion, this concept have so much material.

Thanks for your contribution.

Hi, José. :D
I guess, you are serious about that I should make the poll part III of it. I sure would like to do that. But what about pere-23566? Do you confirm, I should do that? It seems, it is a project between you both and I don't want anybody to become upset about it. I read a while to undestand.

Please advise me. How are the rules of this poll-series? I have the impression, movies aren't allowed to take part in two of the poll-parts. And I guess the rest is free - or is there some motto for each poll-part or for the whole thing?

If you were kidding, it would be ok as well. I like to help and thank you for the 'suggested by'-mark. Stephen N Russel noticed 'Saving Private Ryan' before I did. It's a bit more his suggestion. :)

These are the only best end-scene-images I've found on IMDb:

I'd say that original Saw (2004) was much mor of a thriller with elements of slasher.

I'm serious, I think you should do this .. For me it's fine, about pere-23566, I don't know what he thinks, but I think he'll feel comfortable with that if you ask him. 

I mean, you are continuing this concept and i'm comfortable with that and I believe that is really good to keep continuing running this concept because there are so much material and we all had seen movies that the other didn't watched, so it's benefichal.

About the rules, yes you're right two scenes can't be allowed in two polls. Apart from that, you can choose the scenes you want.

Stephen N Russel was giving a choise of a scene, not a suggestion. I asked him because I was also and he said that.

What is slasher?

5.8K Messages

130.5K Points

Slashers are bloody and gory Horror-Movies. The shock from the brutality is the main shocking element, not horror with subliminal elements like in "Insidious" or "Paranormal Activity". Plain old fear and brutality. eg. "Wrong Turn" or "Texas Chainsaw Masacre". I see it like Nikolay. Mainly the first "Saw" is a gory thriller. But mainly a thriller. All sequels are just repeating the main matter in different kinds. Since part 2 it's just about scary blood-deaths, not really tension anymore. And not really creatve except the death scenes. The first 'Saw'-movie is awesome!

I know it is might be a bit to mainstream for this poll, but I would like to suggest the Qucksilver scene from X-Men: Apocalypse (2016), one of the most immersive and jaw-dropping scenes I have seen in a few recent years.

I did not see the movie, so I had to go to youtube to see this scene and until you're right it's a good scene, this in a movie theater should be highly.
Great suggestion and certainly will be in this poll.

I've seen this scene. It was awesome and breathtaking. The whole audience stood noiseless for half a minute. If there wasn't the movie-sound, you could have heard a needle hit the ground. In a room with 800 seats, about 600 seats crowded. At the end of the scene nearly the whole audience laughed, whistled and claped their hands.

I personally think that the term "intense" is too broad for your poll's good, intensity can go in so many directions, it can be stressful, exhilarating, spellbinding, suspenseful, and even with one specific idea of intensity, I think I can come up with 100 classic scenes that could be described as intense... when you think about it, every climax in a film is intense in a way or another, or every good film has at least one intense scene. 

I think the only solution would either to focus on a special genre, or a certain category of films (Top 250 for instance) or ask us which scene do we personally consider the most intense.
