There are some movie scenes that make you hold your breath because it's so intense... you feel like you're there... you feel like excited for that and when you get that feeling you already know you'll never forget that scene. These moments are kinda cinematographic pleasure.

Which one of these movie scenes left you more amazed?

List: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls026113818/

P:s: I am not particularly including shootings on this poll.
I wanted to include the "Strudel Scene" in Inglourious Basterds and the "Coin Toss" in No Country for Old Men but i have not found images of these scenes so i had to request to add the images of these scenes on the Contribution. When i these images are aproved i will include on this list.

José,

I like the concept behind your poll. However, I would like to see comments from other poll authors and users on your choices for intense scenes. I hope they may be able to supply other scenes that meet your criteria.

Dan,

It's very similar to this poll >>> https://www.imdb.com/poll/onTc41AGX3A/ 

Maybe Jose could remove the overlapping options and make a part 2? I wouldn't mind that.

The beating scene and the death of Jesus, both intense.But the scene with Judas Iskariot, when he turns nuts and
commits suicide is intense, too.

I did not see the movie so I had to go to YouTube to see this scene and it's definitely intense that you can almost feel the lashing that the character is taking. Very uncomfortable for the viewers to watch because it is inhuman and to know that this scene really happened in reality and that Jesus suffered it is really very sad.
Great suggestion and certainly will be in this poll.

Thanks for your contribution.

I got a few scenes in the head, which felt pretty intense for me. But warning: There are a few spoilers ahead. If you don't know a movie and read the name, don't look at the sentence below. It could spoil you if you haven't seen the movie.



Saw:

The end of 'Saw'.


The Truman Show:

Truman's last time saying goodbye in 'The Truman Show'.


Robocop:

The first demonstration of a mechanical cop in 'Robocop', making hackmeat on the presentationtable by a Robot using two guns on a ceo.


The Sixth Sense:

Dr. Malcolm Crowe discovering he's not alive anymore at 'The sixth sense'.


Saving Private Ryan:

The landing in the Normandy


Ghost Ship:

The intro-scene on deck. The body-cutting cable.


Shutter Island:

When Teddy Daniels realises, he killed his wive and that he is an inmate in real.


Shawshank Redemption:

When Andy gets out of Jail and the director kills himself.


Buried (R.Reynolds):

The whole movie.


Hannibal:

The dinner Scene.


Scream:

The psychopath's revealing scene.


Interstellar:

The spaceship-docking-scene, after Dr. Man went nuts. When Cooper docks the turning shuttle on.


2010:

The Space-ballet.


Phone-Booth:

Many Scenes, but specially the one, when Stu Shepard reveals the truth about his lousy life and yells at the shooter.

I know it is might be a bit to mainstream for this poll, but I would like to suggest the Qucksilver scene from X-Men: Apocalypse (2016), one of the most immersive and jaw-dropping scenes I have seen in a few recent years.

I did not see the movie, so I had to go to youtube to see this scene and until you're right it's a good scene, this in a movie theater should be highly.
Great suggestion and certainly will be in this poll.

I've seen this scene. It was awesome and breathtaking. The whole audience stood noiseless for half a minute. If there wasn't the movie-sound, you could have heard a needle hit the ground. In a room with 800 seats, about 600 seats crowded. At the end of the scene nearly the whole audience laughed, whistled and claped their hands.

I personally think that the term "intense" is too broad for your poll's good, intensity can go in so many directions, it can be stressful, exhilarating, spellbinding, suspenseful, and even with one specific idea of intensity, I think I can come up with 100 classic scenes that could be described as intense... when you think about it, every climax in a film is intense in a way or another, or every good film has at least one intense scene. 

I think the only solution would either to focus on a special genre, or a certain category of films (Top 250 for instance) or ask us which scene do we personally consider the most intense.

The last moment in 'La la land' (I just saw 'La la land' again) is pretty intense in a positive way. Maybe that's a scene for your poll ?

I think it would fit more in my other poll "most touching movie scenes" because it's more kind emotional than intense, in my opinion.

Yes, it's nice to see this scene in the top of the preferences, but I kind of has expecting it because this was definitely one of the most intense scenes of the cinema, you can see the tension in the protagonist carrying you to the screen, he striving to keep the rhythm, between sweat and pain ... and try to get to a place where many few men came, trying to be the new "Bird"
This poll has really good scenes suggested by this community and I think will make it difficult to choose the best.

I was very happy that this poll finally is live, now the main focus is to try to get yours.

තරිඳු ධනංජය 

I did not find a video or image related to that scene but I think you're talking about when they're hiding from the Germans in that boat and they have to be quiet even when the Germans start shooting that boat like a target and hit one of them. Is that scene isn't?

Because I couldn't get an image and video related to this scene, I had to include another scene and I opted for the "Final Dog Fight". 
I hope you don't mind.

Scene: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Ml0r-5U3lw

It's hard to choose just one scene of that movie, this movie has a plenty of intense moments but i think this scene was the best of all. Because it was you that brought this movie, I put that was you that suggested the scene. I think it is fair.

Thanks for remembering this movie, I've saw it a 6 months ago but I completely forgot about it.

'Great idea for poll and good list.

I noticed what I think might be a typo in the intro:

There are some movie scenes that make you hold your breath because it's so intense... you feel like you're there... you feel like you're excited for that and when you get that feeling you already know you'll never forget that scene. These moments are kinda cinematographic pleasure. 

(I thought maybe you intended to have "you're" in there, especially as the other phrases use it -- to good effect, by the way.)
