    The Dark Knight Rises
    "So that's what that feels like." Also seeing the completed Batcave after not seeing it for seven years.

    The Expendables 2
    "I heard another rumor- that you were bitten by a king cobra."
    "Yeah I was. But after five days of agonizing pain... the cobra died."

    Beasts of the Southern Wild
    Hushpuppy confronting the beasts.

    Dark Shadows
    The opening sequence, accompanied by The Moody Blues' "Nights in White Satin"

    Moonrise Kingdom
    Ed Norton's character leaping a river while escaping a burning cabin and carrying the scoutmaster to safety. Hell, the whole movie really counts as a great film moment.

    Skyfall
    The helicopter approaching the mansion blaring The Animals "Boom Boom".

    The Avengers
    Anything Tony says. Also Hulk punching Thor during the final battle.

    The Amazing Spider-Man
    Stan Lee's cameo.

    Argo
    The ****ing plane sequence. **** you Affleck for making that so beautifully suspenseful.

    The Cabin in the Woods: **** hits the fan when all the elevators open

    Chronicle: climax

    Ted: Patrick Stewart saying "Nobody gives a ****!"

    Skyfall: fire, fire, fire, everything orange.

    Face the facts, Bane made this film, and he was a better villain than the Joker. In every scene, he completely dominates the film. Best lines, best scenes.

    Oh, man, I loved that so much. Highlight of the film.

    Pitt/McNairy's first scene in Killing them Softly.

    The Tennyson scene from Skyfall.

    Bane's conversation with Bruce in the pit in The Dark Knight Rises.

    That bit where Dredd killed someone in Dredd.

    Personally I like the Tony/Loki confrontation better, but then again I like my epicness mixed in with snarky humor.

    Ooh boy, thems fighting words.

    I so disagree. Hardy's Bane was good, but he can't touch Ledger's Joker. Not in a million years.

    Back to topic. Skyfall. Every scene with Silva and everything at Skyfall Lodge and beyond.

    "Puny god."

    "So that's what that feels like."

    I do like the moment where Stark lands on the pad of his tower and walks inward while the automation takes his armor off.

    There is a quick moment at the end of The Hunger Games where Sutherland stands with an arm on his chest and his chin in the other hand as he contemplates what do to about the new heroes who won the game. Awesome villain moment.

    Batman Rises was a pretty terrible film, so it wasn't that hard to dominate. I'll certainly agree that he was its nonsensical centerpiece, and as such is pretty demonstrative of the films broader problems.

    Wocky, you predisposed yourself to hating it even before it came out on the temp boards, so I don't know if your opinion holds much weight on TDKR.
