18 Movie Scenes Millennials Believe Are So Good, They Might Be The Best Of All Time

Fairy Godmother singing "I Need a Hero" in Shrek 2 is a work of art.

1. 10 Things I Hate About You (1999) — “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You”

Disney

“Heath Ledger set the expectations for every ’90s teen girl…I still hope one day a guy will dance around the bleachers singing ‘Can’t Take My Eyes Off You’ for me.”

Watch the whole scene here:

2. Pulp Fiction (1994) — “Vincent and Mia Dance in the Diner”

Miramax Films

“The diner scene with Uma Thurman and John Travolta in Pulp Fiction is absolute perfection. I’ve always thought of it as the best scene in any movie I’ve ever seen, and always will.”

Watch the whole scene here:

3. The Lion King (1994) — “Long Live the King”

Disney

“The ‘long live the king’ moment from The Lion King is filled with so much drama, betrayal, and sadness all in one scene that it puts you on the edge of your seat. It’s phenomenal.”

Watch the whole scene here:

4. Dreamgirls (2006) — “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going”

DreamWorks Pictures

I don’t think there’s a better movie musical performance than Jennifer Hudson’s ‘And I Am Telling You’ from Dreamgirls. She gives 150% in this scene, singing her whole heart and soul out, making Effie White one of the most memorable characters in movie history. There’s a reason she won the Oscar for this role!!!

Watch the whole scene here:

5. The Devil Wears Prada (2006) — “The Cerulean Sweater Monologue”

20th Century Fox

“The Miranda Priestly monologue about the cerulean sweater is something, gurrrrrl! Her delivery is absolutely iconic, and nothing will ever top it.”

Watch the whole scene here:

6. Fight Club (1999) — “The Narrator and Marla’s Ending”

20th Century Fox

“The end scene in Fight Club is hauntingly beautiful. Everything about it is perfect — how well the song fits, the chaos around them, and the Narrator’s iconic final line: ‘You met me at a very strange time in my life.'”

Watch the whole scene here:

7. Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit (1993) — “Joyful, Joyful”

Disney

The end of Sister Act 2 when Rita and the rest of the choir sings “Joyful, Joyful” is such an important movie scene for millennials. Lauryn Hill is up there being her true, authentic self, and Whoopi Goldberg is in her habit dancing and urging the rest of the kids to sing their hearts out. It’s a cinematic masterpiece.

Watch the whole scene here:

8. Titanic (1997) — “Jack Draws Rose”

Paramount Pictures

“The drawing scene from Titanic is iconic and peak romance. Posing naked in that position, Kate Winslet exudes confidence and beauty.”

Watch the whole scene here:

9. Cool Runnings (1993) — “Slow Clap to the Finish Line”

Disney

“After the Jamaican bobsledding team crashes during the last heat of the race, they carry their sled to the finish line as the crowd gives them the best slow clap ever. This scene is pure ’90s glory.”

Watch the whole scene here:

10. Shrek 2 (2004) — “I Need a Hero”

DreamWorks Pictures

“The scene in Shrek 2 when Fairy Godmother sings ‘I Need a Hero’ is poetic cinema. I’m instantly transported back to my childhood whenever I watch it.”

Watch the whole scene here:

11. Bring It On (2000) — “The Clovers and Toros Cheer-Off”

Universal Pictures

“Isis and the East Compton Clovers showing up to the Toros’ game and calling them out for stealing their cheers is one of the best movie scenes ever! Kirsten Dunst’s reaction is priceless because let’s face it: Gabrielle Union delivers her line flawlessly. Team Clovers forever.”

Watch the whole scene here:

12. The Matrix (1999) — “Bullet Time”

Warner Bros. Pictures

“One of my favorite movie scenes (probably the most iconic) is the bullet time scene from The Matrix. I wish I could see that again for the first time because it’s such a unique moment in movie history and groundbreaking for its time.”

Watch the whole scene here:

13. Kill Bill: Volume 1 (2003) — “Vernita Green Fight Scene”

Miramax Films

“The entire fight sequence with Vivica A. Fox in Kill Bill: Volume 1 is iconic. It makes you feel every type of emotion as a viewer, and it goes from intense, to playful, to humorous, all while keeping you on the edge of your seat.”

Watch the whole scene here:

14. Legally Blonde (2001) — “Chutney’s Cross-Examination”

MGM

“I remember how amazed I was watching this for the first time when I was younger. The rhythm of the scene is so great, and Elle’s so proud of herself for finally figuring it out. I just love how she brings her own personality to it, all while winning the case.”

Watch the whole scene here:

15. Men in Black (1997) — “A Series of Simple Tests”

Sony Pictures Releasing

“The scene in Men in Black where Will Smith has to take the series of tests is amazing! The comedic timing, sound design, and acting is so perfect, I lose it every time.”

Watch the whole scene here:

16. Love & Basketball (2000) — “Play for Your Heart”

New Line Cinema

“In Love & Basketball, when Monica challenges Quincy to a game of one-on-one two weeks before he’s supposed to marry someone else is so good. ‘I’ll play you for your heart’ is one of the best movie lines ever!”

Watch the whole scene here:

17. Holes (2003) — “Zero Teaches Mr. Pendanski a Lesson”

Disney

“Zero hitting the counselor with a shovel and saying ‘Dig!’ in Holes is so iconic. He finally stands up for himself after being constantly bullied by everyone at Camp Green Lake, and he shows off his new reading skills at the same time. It’s incredible.”

Watch the whole scene here:

18. And The Dark Knight (2008) — “Now I’m Always Smiling”

Warner Bros. Pictures

“Heath Ledger giving Maggie Gyllenhaal a rendition of the legendary ‘Why so serious?’ speech is soooo good. My anxiety heightens real quick, and I get goosebumps every single time I watch it.”
