Best Movie Scenes Ever.
1. "You're The One That I Want" in Grease.
When I was little girl, I wanted to grow up and be Sandy. There was something magical about watching her transform from shy little goody two shoes to one hot momma that Danny couldn't keep his eyes off of. I mean, what girl doesn't want to captivate her man that way? I used to dress up in tight black pants and red high heels and tease my hair rewinding and replaying "You're the one that I want" on my VCR. No, really, I did. I'm surprised I didn't break the VCR as much I replayed it. I used to know the whole Grease soundtrack by heart.
2. "It's Gonna Be Hard" in The Notebook.
Yes, I love the hollywood kissing in the rain scene, but more so, there is something about this scene I love when Noah finally puts his foot down and refuses to let Allie go. He fights for her in that way that every girl longs to be fought for. Swoooooon.
3. "First Meet" in Romeo & Juliet.
I couldn't find an English version of this on YouTube, but really, the scene needs no words. There's something so powerful in the first time Romeo & Juliet set eyes on each other. Everytime I watch this scene, it keeps me believing that maybe, just maybe, love at first sight CAN exist. And I love how when she is swept away, Romeo rushes after her because he can't let her escape.
4. Clueless trailer.
Ok, this isn't one scene in particular, but I loved every scene in Clueless. It totally defined my high school experience, and yes, on the first day of Freshman year, I showed up in knee high socks because Cher totally rocked it in the movie.
5. "Watch Me Shine" in Legally Blonde.
The song in this montage is one of my all time favorite songs. Anytime someone has told me I can't do something, this scene always comes to mind. I love how Elle Woods proves everyone wrong that she too CAN be pass law school! "I'll show you how valuable Elle Woods can be!" is my favorite line from the whole movie!
6. Life Or Something Like It trailer
One of the best Angelina Jolie movies that most people don't know about. In a nutshell, Angelina is told she has a week to live. And like the trailer says "It's time to stop planning and start living." It's a great movie that really puts life in perspective when you realize how short life is.
7. Riding the waves in Blue Crush
Blue Crush was the reason why I bought a surfboard and attempted to surf many years ago. Ok, so I didn't succeed, but what I love about the movie are the analogies of the huge waves of life that we all face, and yet despite how big they are, we still have the power to overcome them and ride them out. I love too being reminded through the movie how BIG our God is through the BIG waves in the movie.
8. "The Death Crawl" in Facing the Giants
I don't really like football, but this movie was incredible. This scene in particular, everyday feels like the death crawl to me. This scene is so amazing in how God is always asking us to give just a little bit more, even when we feel like giving up and have the weight of the world on our backs, He's still there telling us to NOT quit. And then before we know it, we've given even more than we thought possible.
9. One Night With The King trailer
Right now I'm doing the Beth Moore bible study of the book of Esther in the bible, my favorite story in the bible. This movie is about the book of Esther as told in an epic movie kind of way. So powerful. My favorite scene that I couldn't find is when she runs in the rain to fulfill her destiny of opening the door and standing up to the king.
10. "The Cross" in Fireproof
God knows I have a lot to learn about relationships and true love, but what I love about this scene in Fireproof is how Caleb complains about his wife in the ways that Caleb acts toward God. Caleb's dad shares a lot of great wisdom about how Caleb needs to trust God with his life and that it's more than just being a good person.
