Good poll! And my favorite scene is in it. The Sicilian scene, True Romance.
At second place is the fighting scene in Kill Bill with Gogo.

Quentin Tarantino's birthday is in less than a week now (March 27). It'd be nice if this could be published on his birthday, just a thought ... :)

I love this one. It also reminded me of another reason why I miss our old poll board: The "signatures" at the bottom of the posts. From the time I first joined the poll board, I only ever had one: "Come on, Yolanda, what's Fonzie like?" I remember Jamesh, who used to be on there a lot, once replied, "Cool," and then I think it was Peter who responded, "Correctamundo," lol.

it seems like a crime to just pick one. Mr. Blonde flaunting his butchering skills.

Doesn't it?! Say what you will about Tarrantino, but it is hard to argue against the iconic impact he has had on cinema. Thanks for the vote UM!

Can't we use the word 'classic' instead of 'iconic' this time. It makes sense for directors like Hitchcock but seriously, how can any film made in the last 10 years be iconic, doesn't it take some time to build an iconic status? not all the films become instant classics like Saturday Night Fever or The Godfather?

Sorry for the rant, but I just think the word 'iconic' is a bit overused.

I understand your thoughts ElM, but I think it was just easier to keep the same question as the other polls to which I have linked the idea. I know DC has a "Most Iconic" poll for Nolan, you could argue that none of his scenes have really merited that title, at least as early on as you have suggested. But I think keeping the topic at hand as is adds some continuity to the question that has been made into several polls already.

I know, actually, I didn't mean that nothing can become iconic in a short span of time, the ending of "Thelma and Louise" was parodied in Wayne's World and The Simpsons 2 years after, so one could argue that it was an instantly iconic moment. The sight of the boy staring at the clouds in Boyhood can also be considered iconic to some extent...  it's just that QT made such iconic movies that it's like hardcore fans (I don't mean you of course) turn everything he made into immediate classics without even giving them the time to grow on people. Oh well, who cares...

Congrats for the poll!
