    Wow, totally forgot about some of these. There are better ones selected from the movies though.

    Good music/audio can make what would be a mediocre movie spectacular. Bad music can make what could be a great movie, terrible.

    Will watch vid when im at home.

    Some of these clips totally overshadow the rest of the movie in the way they've been mimicked later too. Like who the fuck cares what Risky Business was even about? Music can make a scene way more memorable than the rest of the movie.

    Edit: Out of the whole list I think Clockwork Orange had the most disturbing clip/music pairing.

    Meh, some of these were just the song that played over the opening or closing credits. Not really a "moment" at all. But also some of them were from my favorite movies, so that's cool.

    I tried to count, and I think I've seen 72 of the 100.

    I think I'm the only one who thinks Donnie Darko was "ok". Everybody seems to hate it with a passion or claim it's the greatest movie ever made.

    That list was indeed awesome though. Like Used, I've seen almost all of them. And the ones I haven't seen still ring a bell through pop culture parody (like Dan said about Risky Buisness). Only two I was hoping for but didn't see are Dewey Cox singing Walk Hard and Cheech and Chong performing Earache My Eye.

    Oh and I can't forget What Do Tigers Dream Of from The Hangover. :p

    If I cry in a film (note: I've only cried at Bambi, The Green Mile, The Karate Kid [new] and Big Fish) it's always due to the music tipping me over the edge.

    Love music in films, it's the same with games too.

    Very cool video, gotta disagree that if it was in opening/closing credits that it is not exactly a music moment. In some of those movies it set the perfect tone/conclusion for the film and was fitting and memorable.

    Any movies ya'll think were left out? I am surprise Watchmen wasn't in there anywhere.

    I only counted 29 for me. Man I got to watch more films. I enjoyed Young Frankenstein's, Office Space, and The Shawshank Redemption. Office Space triggered my memory of Daniel jumping on the Xbox. I'm just glad they didn't show whole clip in Silence of the Lambs.

    MattAY, was it the part in The Karate kid where Mr. Han told his story of how his family died? That's the part I got teared up.

    Now I want to see that film again. Sure it was a remake, but it was a damn good remake.

    -The Whistle Song from Kill Bill Vol. 1
    -Time Warp from Rocky Horror Picture Show
    -Court of The Crimson King in Children of Men
    -Untitled #4 by Sigur Ros from the ending of Vanilla Sky

    Cool video (skimmed it) , but like all music totally subjective and kind of dated. Music, especially in the 80's and early 90's can remind you of how old a film is and make it seem cool in the moment, but ancient after the fact. Old films can be seen as pioneers, but lets give it up to technology - we're getting better at using music to transition from scene to scene and we are understanding better how to associate music to set the mood.

    The breakfast club ending always makes me feel a certain way that I cant describe.. *tear*
    young frankenstein - puttin on the ritZ!
    Office space had some great moments too.
    Ninja rap was CLASSIC - Not kidding!!!!
    Waynes world.. should be at the top!

    Only one Disney song was kind of a shame.

    Yeah, they often made the animation go so perfecty to the music. Pink elephants on parade and Colors of the wind for example.


    Stand By Me had the Lollipop song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HeQYGCp6z0A

    Assasination of Jesse James. The music that starts playing at the assasination scene is beautiful. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wPIivI1K6f0

    Full Metal Jacket ending and the Mickey Mouse song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PmILOL55xP0

    Nice video btw.

    kinda skipped through it but from what I saw definitely loved 500 days of summer and the devils rejects, despite how much i hated that movie.

    kickass is probably my favorite movie musically. it's pretty much my favorite movie of all time though so i'm biased.

    How to train your dragon is probably my favorite movie musically of all time. Moon is up there too. The soundtrack to Moon is fucking miraculous for the movie.

    Devil's Rejects was terrible. I hate those sadistic torture porn movies, they're not scary and I don't find it funny at all. But I still enjoyed it on the video simply because of the song. It's amazing how much of an impact music can have on the scene.

    Kick-Ass was one of my favourites of 2010. The two musical scores when Big Daddy kicks ass in the warehouse (no pun intended) and Hit Girl tries to save Big Daddy were originally made for Danny Boyle's movies 28 Weeks Later and Sunshine. I think they work better in those movies but they still work great in Kick Ass.

    indeed. forgot to mention that one. well i forgot to mention a million of them, but those three i guess are definitely up there for me.

    and i agree about devils rejects, it was just too over the top. i can't watch that shit and feel comfortable about it. people try and defend it and call it art, it's sadistic and weird, end of story.

    but then hypocritically i will say i thought house of 1000 corpses was unique, and well done when it comes to horror movies. I didn't find it as brutal as devils rejects, though was definitely sadistic as they come. i wouldn't watch it again though, nor would i own it, or recommend watching it. the only reason i DID watch it is my bro and I were channel surfing a LOOONG time ago, and stumbled upon it without knowing what it was. we thought it was a comedy at first, and then intrigue grew, couldnt stop watching. but i still say it was well done. then i watched devils rejects out of curiosity and it was just brutal and stupid and typical.

    anyyyywaaay back on topic, i'll go look at my blu ray collection and pick another movie i think has exceptional music...

    brb...


    the end of 3:10 to Yuma, the recent one.
