    Speaking of LOTR, when Sam and Frodo are going up the mountain to throw the ring in the lava, and Sam tries to encourage Frodo to keep going by reminding him of home, my favorite part is where Sam says, I can't carry the ring, but I can carry you! I love that scene.

    Another one of my favorite scenes that is so well done is in Hitch when Kevin James kisses the girl and "floats" down the stairs, does a pirouette on the sidewalk and walks away on cloud nine. That was acted so true-to-life!

    Also love the classic line in the movie when Will Smith has just watched a demonstration of Kevin James' dancing ability and says, "Don't ever do that again!"

    I still love the cityscapes in Blade Runner. To this day, they are some of the most amazing vistas in cinema.

    Blade Runner is a case like Jurassic Park. The movie is 14 years old, and yet no computer-generated dinosaurs since then have ever matched the realism of Jurassic Park.

    And so another favorite movie scene for me was the CG Brachiosaur in Jurassic Park. The introduction of a photorealistic computer-generated character.

    Have you seen Ridley's "Black Rain"? Same rainy Hong Kong-esque atmosphere.

    Well, it's not just the atmosphere, it's the fact that the cityscapes in Blade Runner were miniatures and/or optical composites. And that's where the amazement hides. There is a certain magical feeling of mixing the synthetic with reality.

    The feather sequence in Forrest Gump was quite amazing once you discover it was digitally manipulated. Back in those days, invisible effects were of great interest. And they are the reason today's movies almost always have a certain degree of special effects, not just sci-fi monster movies.

    Here it is, for you and for everyone who's wondering what all this maudlin talk is about.

    For those who don't know the film, Anthony Hopkins is playing C.S. Lewis and the young boy in the scene portrays Douglas Gresham. It's just after the death by cancer of American poet Joy Davidman, the boy's mother and Lewis's wife.

    I also very much like this scene from The Outlaw Josey Wales.
