Great list overall, definitely missing the Keyser Soze moment.

I highly anticipated this moment. But, for me, the next 2 movies ruined it for me looking back.
Not a bad list...

But sometimes it seemed to be more about greatest lines than greatest moments. For example, if you're going to include "The Godfather," it's got to be horse's head scene. "Gone With the Wind?" Great line and great moment, but without question the most dramatic moment in the movie is the scene where Scarlett is walking among the wounded after the Battle of Atlanta as the camera pulls back.

A few greatest movie moments I would have included, in no particular order:

1. Errol Flynn swinging onto a branch and tipping his hat to Olivia de Haviland in "The Adventures of Robin Hood." Great line, too ("Welcome to Sherwood, my lady."), but the scene was so cool that it even made it into a Bugs Bunny cartoon (both courtesy of Warner Bros.)

2. The officers and men of Cruiser C57D meet Robbie the Robot for the first time in "Forbidden Planet."

3. Richard Gere picking up Debra Winger and carrying her out of the Cannery at the end of "An Officer and a Gentleman."
Good list

Surprised not to see the whole “Jack I’m flying” scene from the Titanic.

I would have Terminator 2 “Hasta la vista baby” on my list of top 100.

Braveheart: “They May take our lives.....” is obvious omission.

I also thought Ghostbusters was noticeably absent although im not sure which scene you go with. Probably the library at the beginning.

Also, original Halloween. “Was that the boogy man?”
Obviously subjective to individual taste but a good, fun list ...

At #49, the Deer Hunter is the only movie I ever walked out of because I just couldn’t handle the Russian Roulette scenes ... but I later talked to my brother who was an MP in Saigon in ‘69 and he said he never heard of those happening ... kudos to Hollywood if they thought that up on their lonesome.
A few more.

We meet The Ringo Kid (John Wayne) for the first time in "Stagecoach."

The fight between John Wayne and Victor McLaglen in "The Quiet Man."

Henry Fonda, Tom Joad's speech in "The Grapes of Wrath."

Gene Tierney walks in on Dana Andrews in "Laura."

Groucho Marx and Harpo Marx, the mirror scene in "Duck Soup."
It is a good list. I would move up the Patton scene  
LBH15 : 7/12/2020 2:53 pm : link
and give some love to a few scenes from the flicks which had some memorable scenes like Braveheart, Pride of Yankees, The Omen, Caddyshack.
The OK Corral scene from Tombstone  
Chris684 : 7/12/2020 3:03 pm : link
National Lampoons Vacation arrival at Wally World
Any list that has a moment from Star Wars as #1  
Stan in LA : 7/12/2020 3:36 pm : link
Is a junk list.
Mister Roberts scene  
Daniel in Kentucky : 7/12/2020 3:57 pm : link
when Jack Lemon is reading the letter at the end.
Good list.

Thanks for this.
Some were mentioned already  
UConn4523 : 7/12/2020 8:35 pm : link
but the opening scene in Inglorious Basterds would be on my top 100 list.
I would nominate the coin flip scene from ....  
Crispino : 7/12/2020 10:26 pm : link
No Country for Old Men.

Salieri being astounded by Mozart’s music and tearfully burning the crucifix in Amdeus.

John Coffey’s death in The Green Mile.

There’s an urban legend

that DeNiro heard that “Are you talking to me?” line from Bruce Springsteen at a concert he attended in LA around the filming of Taxi Driver. Bruce would say that line to the crowd when they were cheering for an encore.
