MORE Powerful Movie Scenes With Minimal Dialogue
As Norma Desmond once said, "We didn't need dialogue. We had faces." Though she may have meant this in a different context, we understood the subtext - sometimes, the most powerful moments in a film can be conceived without any dialogue at all. We often associate powerful movie scenes with some intense action or an intense exchange of words. However, these scenes had little to no dialogue and still resonated with us for being as iconic as they were silent. By the end, you may have felt emotionally drained or inexplicably moved, but the catch is that such was achieved without the primary usage of dialogue. So which of these powerful movie scenes, that had little to no dialogue, resonated with you the most? (Please note: TV shows, silent movies or scenes that are montages, like the introduction to Up (2009), though beloved by many, will be excluded from this list.)

Climax for Breakfast
Well, it goes like men, there are 'night' movies and 'morning' movies... Indeed, when it comes to dramas, nighttime is generally an ideal setting for climactic scenes as darkness emphasizes danger and allows violence to reach its highest point. Then, the sun can rise peacefully, lighting hopes for a brighter future... But sometimes, the night plays the "quiet before the storm" part or let things escalate until they can finally implode at dawn, in the morning or let's just say a few hours before noon. This is a compilation of memorable climactic scenes that take scene at a moment viewers can identify as the morning, either because it's shown or strongly implied (some pictures don't match in order to avoid spoiling the ending). Not necessarily from your favorite film, which of these morning climaxes is your favorite? After voting, you might discuss the list here

Top 20 Villains Exit Lines
An opening line sets the tone, a final line makes the point.

Pathetic or poignant in a dignified way, conclusive or enigmatic in an overarching way, all the following lines have been uttered by these baddies the last time we saw them on the screen. Which of these exit-lines is the most memorable?
