    So we all get moved at certain scenes in movies... and for different reasons. Let's talk about some of your favorite movie scenes and why they are your favorite. What exactly had you balling like a baby? What made you want to punch the tv with anger? Why exactly does that scene mean so much to you? Break it down, talk about the characters and why you love them, I don't care. But tonight, I am inspired by one of my favorite movies, Warcraft. Now some of you may laugh and wonder when I hit my head because many do not like this movie. But I will tell you it's normally the hardcore World of Warcraft game players that hate it. I didn't start actively playing World of Warcraft until this movie. The story meant so much I just had to play. I think that is why I ain't mad at Blizzard for the "disappointment" lol. Because I was unbiased.

    Anyway, like I said, it's a movie that I can watch over and over and never get tired of it. My fondness for Durotan is real. I know he's a character. But it's what he represents that I love the most! For those who haven't seen the movie, an evil Orc Warlock (leader of the Horde) named Gul'dan is influenced by a nasty green magic called the Fel. Everywhere he uses his magic, things die, and the land dies because the payment is life. So they have to invade the land of the humans to survive since Gul'dan's magic destroyed the orc world. One of the chieftains is Durotan of the Frostwolf clan. He feels that in order for orcs to survive (with their honor intact, too) is to stop Gul'dan. Orcs are very traditional and they love war and to fight, but with honor and respect. Durotan hates the nonsensical killing of people and lands to use the fel, and in my favorite scene, Durotan challenges Gul'dan to Mak'gora. This is a very traditional way of earning your respect as clan leader -or whatever- Idk the specifics, and I'm pretty sure it's a fight to the death.

    Well Durotan knew Gul'dan would cheat and use the fel in the fight, and he wanted to expose what a dishonorable orc Gul'dan really was... So even though HE KNEW HE WOULD DIE... he challenged Gul'dan anyway, to expose him so that his people would not follow him. He sacrificed his LIFE just for a chance that his people might abandon their evil leader and gain an honorable one.

    His courage, his brute strength, his calmness, his respect for others and devotion to his people... I just want to cry thinking of it. For such a mighty warrior to let himself be killed in that way, I mean he knew he wouldn't beat the fel. Omg my emoshuns.

    After Gul'dan has drained much of the life force from Durotan, he (Durotan) stands up proud but weak, and yells.
    "Gul'dan!!! You have NO HONOR!!!"
    Well, ofc this pisses off the evil one. And so Gul'dan charges him and sucks the remaining life out of him, all the while the orcs are in a frenzied outrage.
    "Gul'dan cheats! This is Mak'gora!"
    They look on, disproving, as Durotan is killed is such a dishonorable way.
    As soon as he takes his last breath, his friend tries to rally them.
    "You will follow this... thing? "
    He eventually gets to them, but sadly, Gul'dan starts using his fel on the orcs (he infuses some orcs and the warchief, Blackhand, with the fel, and turned them all evil...and the rest stand down. So now they are being ruled out of fear. And Durotan's sacrifice... well...

    God it rips my heart out. Yes, I cried in a fight scene!

    Here is the scene... :) <3

    Too many movies and scenes have meaning to me. Some I'd be embarrassed as they're just so hokey with bad writing and acting (Star Wars) ... Most memorable for me though seem to come from JRR Tolkien, so I'm not sure you could really say they're from a movie, but rather, his books.

    Just about any scene with Gandalf in it will have meaning. He always enlightens, often has a slight sense of humor in what he's saying, even if it is about death itself.

    I think I'll go back to the Hobbit though for my absolute favorite scene involving Gandalf. It was when he was trying to get Bilbo up off his ass and to see the world around him. He says something akin to "The world is not in your books and maps. It is out there." It just reminds me every time I see this and the whole hysterical scene involving the dwarves arriving and introducing themselves "at your service" (LOL) that I too need to get out there and experience life, air, everything. Learn to stop worrying and planning and just embrace and enjoy everything for what it is.

    @Wyote Im dying to hear your input on this for some reason! What scene from a movie really moves you?

    We know youre not really a robot, or a potato even, so c'mon did you ever get affected by any scene? :)

    As mainstream as it is I'd have to go with a moment from Avengers: Endgame. Surprisingly not 'I am Iron Man', although that did resonate with me about my own values and what I would do if I had that same level of power and responsibility. The particular sequence that impacted me was the fight between Natasha (Black Widow) and Clint (Hawkeye). It's one of the very few movie scenes that has made me cry - not in a sobbing way, but the stream of tears - and still stirs some deep pit of me when I rewatch it. The effect was so profound even my friends in the dark space of a cinema noticed me uncomfortably shifting in my seat, I couldn't sit still during it.

    I have always been someone whom isn't always obviously expressive about how much those closest to me mean to me. My way is more so showing it by: being my more goofier, truer self; blunt and honest with advice to be the kindest and most helpful option, even if others see it as cold; devoting as much time and energy as is needed to them even if it temporarily makes me a husk. My rationale for this is that the depth of feeling I have for these people is simply so staggering if I were to even frequently try to articulate it every now and then it would quickly become cliche and overly-affectionate. But the compassion and loyalty is still very much there, and it's because of this that I felt so impacted by this.

    The exchange between them where they themselves do not just outright express themselves, more so eluding to their relationship, as well as the playful humour they still use such as how even in such a charged moment she still calls him 'you idiot' and he calls her a 'pain in [his] ass'. It's so obvious that as painful as it was for him to live a life without his wife and kids, the notion of a world without his best friend is so dismal to him that he would rather give his life for hers even if it meant that he wouldn't be able to see his family should the plan work. Especially the moment when they are both hanging, and she just softly says 'Let me go' and his anguish as he pleads. During the whole experience I was honestly living it through Clint in a way I have never before during a movie - the lines between reality and film became so blurred for me in that instance. I just saw myself as him, and in the character of Natasha anyone whom I cherish and it did honestly break a small part of me.

    Damnit. You made me cry. I am so emotion right now. Are you INFP? The part where you talk about if you tried to share your feelings a lot they might get watered down and or something... I just wondered, but maybe youre like me and have INFP tendencies but still not INFP lol.

    But dude. As always, you floor me, surprise me, and move me. I felt what you described and I have not even seen the movie! I need to now. I somehow knew you would contribute. I can count on you like that! <3

    Thanks for sharing a more serious part of you. I do enjoy the funny sarcasm and wit, SO MUCH lol but this meant a lot! Thanks my friend!!!<3

    I'm glad I was able to express how it made me feel so well because I was constantly changing it as I wrote - even if it did make you cry:sweatsmile:. Honestly I should probably put INxx for my MBTI, I'm too central for them both to be able to accurately depict me, my only landslide definites are my Introspective and Intuitive traits.

    Hahah I'm glad to have had an impact of sorts anyhow but wow not having seen Endgame. What about other Marvel movies? I mean they're not brilliant as a collective but some of the character development and particular films are amazing.

    But what can I say, I prioritise an equilibrium heuheuh

    There are so many movies and so many scenes that move me that I could write all day. . but for now. . the movie is Tombstone.
    Johnny Ringo sets a gunfight between himself and Wyatt Earp. . one Wyatt know he will lose and be killed.
    the time arrives and who shows up, , Doc Holiday wearing a Marshall's badge.Doc says,"why Johnny you look like a ghost just walked over your grave" .Ringo replies, "fights not with you Holiday"..Doc, "I beg to differ, we began a game we didn't finish" .Ringo,"alright lunger" .
    they stalk each other until Doc says, "say when". . that causes Ringo to draw but Doc is faster and shoots him in the head. .killing him. . Doc's reaction. 'why you're not a daisy at all" . .
    Wyatt shows up and Doc takes of the badge, "My hypocrisy only goes so far"
    Doc knew that his only friend in life would be killed so he stood in for him. .
    Doc, as flawed as we was, loved his friend and would do anything for him... .the 1880 version of an INFJ. .

    Definitely, I am profoundly affected by scenes often.
    Most recently I saw the movie 1917
    and was absolutely shaken to my core. One character died amidst some cherry blossom leaves and when the main character was floating down a river grasping onto life and a wooden log suddenly he passed a beautiful large cherry blossom tree and began to hear a singing voice as he stepped over dead bodies to climb out of the river.
    Describing it doesn't do it justice at all, but it hit me very hard and was absolutely beautifully filmed and poetically illustrated.

    Yes, I see INTP in you too. Like I said, you're a gem!!

    Heh... I've seen plenty Marvel movies but it's embarrassing how many I have not seen... Embarrassing because I LOVE hero stuff and it's no excuse to have missed so many great movies. But he's a silver outline... I cannot wait until I actually do see them! I know it's gonna be epic!!!

    @April I'm a huge WoW nerd. Anyone that can use Mak'gora in a sentence is a friend in my book. I wasn't too upset with the movie. I own it. I was hoping it'd earn enough to get to Warcraft 3's story. That scene you described was a pretty powerful one. I remember it the most out of the movie.

    Lots of movies left impressions on me. The most recent was Star Wars Rise of Skywalker
    Bridge scene with Ghost Han and Kylo hit me hard.

    Last profound moment was seeing About Time
    The scene where he goes back in time to visit his dad after his dad dies and they both realize its the last time they'll get to talk with each makes me tear up even writing about it.

    There Will Be Blood is my favorite movie of all time.

    There are a lot of scenes I love, but Daniel Plainviews' baptism is probably my favorite. He's so pathologically driven towards his goal that he essentially destroys everyone around him to achieve it, even going as far as kidnapping a random infant from a deceased employee and raising him as his own son. He did it simply to help manipulate people when the boy was older; having a young, sweet face lent the credibility of a family man and helped endear others to him so he could expand his business. He eventually quasi-abandons the boy, named H.W.

    Plainview is so driven to achieve power over his life that he will sink to the level of public self-degradation just to get something he needs from his competitor, Eli, a fake "man of God" who is intent on preying on the same community that Daniel is, but in a different way. Daniel humiliates himself in his competitors' newly established church (he doesn't believe in religion and knows Eli is a con man), being forced in front of the congregation to pretend like he's begging for salvation -- recounting all his sins including that of abandoning H.W.

    You start to realize Daniel actually loves H.W. and deeply hates himself for abandoning him. Eli made him confess for real.

    But the look of barely hidden revulsion when he's sitting in the pew at first and the anger and self-hatred he shows when admitting to his worst moral failings is amazing to me.
