Some favorite movie scenes

The Birds

One of Alfred Hitchcock's greatest movies, this scene is a classic example of subtext.  

White Heat

"On top of the world, Ma."  James Cagney in quite the memorable ending. 

Shawshank Redemption

This Stephen King story has one of the best twist endings ever. 

The Brain Eaters

Based on a story by Robert A. Heinlein, this has become one of my cult classics. Maybe because Leonard Nimoy was in it.
