Has a movie scene ever given you chills?
For me, it's the scene in The Lion King when Simba finally takes his place on Pride Rock and roars and all the lions roar back at him. Or the scene in A Little Princess after Sara's father was killed in the war and she's been banished to the attic and wakes up to snow blowing into her room and bows to her Indian neighbor. Oh! Or the scene in Dead Poet's Society when they all stand on their desks. Or the scene in The Goonies where they decide not to go up the bucket and keep moving forward. And maybe slightly embarrassingly, the scene in The Parent Trap when Hallie and Annie figure out they're twins?
There are probably a million more that I'm forgetting. I love movies that make me go all tingly. Sometimes movies just really hit whatever neuron it is that controls goosebumps in your brain.
Here are some other peoples' favorite goosebump moments from movies they love.
Yes, this times one million.The Brachiosaurus scene in Jurassic Park. The way you see the actors react to seeing a dinosaur for the first time gets me every time. John Williams beautiful score is just a cherry on top and really just adds to that moment of awe. -i_say_uuhhh
Tom Hanks is amazing in this scene.Forrest Gump realizing he’s a dad. -gunslayerjj
There are a lot in Harry Potter.When Professor McGonagall calls for the statues to protect Hogwarts in the Deathly Hallows. It's a combination of the sound effects her voice and the moment of bringing everyone together to fight. I get goosebumps, every single time. -joyousjoy23
My name is Inigo Montoya...
The Princess Bride. Inigo Montoya's vengeance. That entire scene is brilliant but the last line at the end. Every. Single. Time.
"I want my father back you son of a b***ch." -PaulRummy
Characters realizing their own potential always gets me, too.
Neo stopping the bullets.
When I went to see this in the cinema I thought he genuinely wasn't 'the one' and I'm sitting there thinking of all the possibilities of how they were going to continue. When he stopped those bullets I got a feeling that has only been equaled a couple of times since. -ChiefMedicalOfficer
