6.

“The graveyard scene in The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.”

11.

“The opening scene of Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope.”


Disney/Lucasfilm

“It’s hard to impress upon anyone how amazing that star destroyer flying over your head for what seemed like forever felt like at the time. I was 7 when I saw it and it blew my mind. The final trench run made me literally sit on the edge of my seat involuntarily and I had feelings of adrenaline I simply did not know a human could feel.”

— porncrank

— Lychgateproductions
