I'd say keep 'em short--no longer than, say, ten minutes. This is one I come back to again and again, the joyous party scene from the 2013 filming of The Great Gatsby:

Great idea!

Here's one of my favourite moments in a film. The video is good quality except for the sounds of someone turning up the volume in the first fifteen seconds:

I thought this was such a great adaptation of the book. It brought the vivid color (and the dark moments) of the novel to life. This is a great one to own on Blu Ray, btw.

This scene from the Spielberg film 'Empire of the Sun' is one of the most touching moments in cinema I've ever seen:

Set in a Japanese run Prison camp in WWII, this specific scene shows that humanity at their core, even two opposing sides at war, can appreciate a unified love of something otherworldly (in this case: flying). This movie is full of these little moments. Definitely a desert island film for me.

The Beach Boys legacy is still being mortared to this day...it has a solid and unbreakable foundation of incredible songs that tower above most bands, yet some bricks are more brittle and ugly than others (even some bricks put down more recently)...thus is the nature of any entity that continues to exist. You are not defined solely by your good achievements in life, you're also defined by those unpleasant moments too. This law of life, thankfully, helps keep us all in check.

"Police Academy" franchise (& the greatest!):

1. Blanks & Copeland haircut scene, any scene with Hooks, Capt. Harris/ Proctor, "Blue Oyster" club scene, Fackler riding his car with his wife in house robe & hair curlers on car's hood.
2. Mauser/ Proctor, "Blue Oyster", Zed & the gang shoplifting, Mahoney disguised as bandit, Pete Lassard getting graffitied by Zed's gang, Schtulman's house, Jones making real helicopter noises by mouth, Tackleberry's girlfriend's Kirkland fam & his face witnessing his crazy future in-laws.
3. Entire chase scene near the end, Fackler's wife getting into his car & he driving with her...outside on hood (the 1st segment's vice versa scenario), Kirkland-Jr. hilarious boxing match, Zed/ Sweetchuck "Psycho" shower parody, karate lesson with Sweetchuck's tenny flying into Zed's mouth  Cheesy, the police car driving exam ft. Zed/Hooks, Jones/ Adams, Proctor/ Mauser, the rich guy in limo going to assign to the police academy, then asking Hightower, African strongest tallest officer, to carry his bags ("Hey porter" Cheesy), each Zed/ Sweetchuck (fight/ feud) scene, return of Blanks & Copeland, "Blue Oyster".

Masterpiece of a movie. Really, really blew me away.

A band called The Beach Boys are mostly going to be a fun in the sun-themed group. And that has, is, and will always be just as it should. There needs to be ONE classic band that isn't a pack of endless "artistic" moan. All people wanna do is make The Beach Boys into another Beatles they are less tired of.
And, for anyone who has actually experienced them, surfing and cars carry PLENTY of emotion and life experience. They can carry as much metaphor as any Van Dyke Parks clever epistle.

How about a little drama, a little humor and a little music -

This scene is from my third favorite film and I think itís my favorite movie scene ever, with my favorite actress too:

Though the film it comes from is a talkie, this scene is a brilliant exercise in silent comedy:

I love classic musicals. Here is the queen of musicals, the greatest entertainer ever, doing what she did best:

I watched 2001: A Space Odyssey two nights ago on TV. The entire film is awesome beyond belief (I may just rate A Clockwork Orange a little higher) but the "Star Gate" sequence floors me every time, particularly when the diamond shapes loom into view. Roll Eyes

While Ferris Bueller's Day Off was a comedy, there was one particularly poignant scene that has stuck with me.

It can be found at "Ferris Bueller Museum Scene." The scene starts with a bit of a chuckle perhaps, while showing some of  my favorite paintings, and sculptures .
 Then Cameron looks at a particular painting...

Says Director John Hughes:
 "The closer he looks at the child, the less he sees. But the more he looks at it, there's nothing there. I think he fears that the more you look at him the less you see. There isn't anybody there. That's him."

Either film listed by either is boring.
Edit: Except maybe "Twist & Shout"/ Beatles lipsync scene & everybody dances in the Ferris film.

I identify with that scene because I've had feelings such as that earlier in my life, and to tell the truth, every once in a while even now.
But I too enjoy the parade sequence.

How the heck did I miss this post? Talk about not paying attention! Thud

Wow. Anyone watching the EOTS scene and staying dried-eyed must be a robot. And rab that's one beautiful description.  Wink

And thanks for your support for the Leo-fuelled Gatsby. Not everyone feels that way about it. Grin
