It give me chills every time...

Proverbial Jon:

Casual Shinji:
This movie was practically tailor made for me; It's got foxes, it's stop-motion, and it's directed by Wes Anderson. I bought the soundtrack as soon as I could after I first saw it.

Yep, it's confirmed, you're my new favourite person.

The moment Ash earns his bandit hat and the way they proceed to escape from the farmers should be listed here as a definite "chills" moment. The whole feature is such a beautifully crafted, lovingly made piece of art and an absolute favourite of mine.

It's also just the charming little details, like how Ash gets a bandit hat... with stars on it. Or how when they're escaping Christopherson grabs Mr. Fox's tail and ties it to the antenna.

There's also the scene where the Fox family is being dug out and Mr. Fox starts running up the walls. And if you've ever seen a caged fox, that's what they do when they get spooked.

The entire movie was just sprinkled with these wonderful little moments.

Being English I have to say this gives my spine a gold old shudder (btw I am not a fan of Churchill I think for a large chunk of his political career he was an out of touch, opportunistic, aristo but in terms of reassuring a nation (which at the time thought it was nigh-untouchable and was possibly going to seek peace) he did manage to change that feeling into a we'll eventually win.

Also the end speech in The Great Dictator gets me every time, embedded further up in the posts

And of course 1984's O'Brien's speech about power (more it terrifies me)

Comebacks in fighting games always hits me.


The "never give up" theme gets to me, being someone who is awful at every fighting game I have ever tried my hand at.

Also, orchestral renditions of nearly any given video game track. Y'know, unless it was performed by an orchestra in the first place.

The entire song "The Light and the Glass" by Coheed and Cambria.

I don't know what it is, but I get chills when I hear it, and I tear up whenever I sing it.

When Andy escapes in the Shawshank Redemption, just the music, the lighting, how he laughs and smiles, get's me every time and I can't help but smile too with chills going down my spine. Great film.

Jezzascmezza:

- The "Ecstasy of Gold" scene towards the end of The Good the Bad and the Ugly

Gods, yes. That one is amazing.

I'm a sucker for a happy ending, and ff8's is note perfect.

Mr Cwtchy:
The Ride of the Rohirrim in Return of the King:

Gets me every single time.

Excellent, though I prefer and submit this one:

Also, this:

It seems James Cameron's handle of symbolism has slipped somewhat of late, but he once had it in his palm. This works on so many levels as well as just being pretty. Same goes for the Two Towers clip, actually.

[edit] If anyone cares, sorry about the embedding issue on the T2 clip. Apparently every version has the same problem.

FirstToStrike:
This whole song, but the ending solo brings a tear to my eye.

So much emotion, and you let it out like a faucet.

Agreed.

You heard Brendan's Death Song?

I have, and it is another great song by them.

I'm sure I'm in the minority here because I absolutely love hockey, but the two I think of off the top of my head are:

1980 US vs Russia hockey game (Do you believe in miracles?)
2001 Avalanche Stanley Cup (Ray Bourque lifting the Cup while is son looks on crying)

I would look up the associated youtube videos for a link, but I don't have enough time. They're easy enough to find.

Claymored:
Discovering the last den of Doug Rattmann in Portal 2. After that, every time I thick about it's chilling, especially if you can hear his crying out gibberish.

what happens to rattmann anyway? what was his story? i never could find out, or piece it together.

The return to the Ishimura in Dead Space 2.
What freaked me out was how little they changed it; I expected them to take some artistic liberties and change it a little, you know?
Nope.
Everything's EXACTLY where it was in the first Dead Space and I navigated that place by memory. I remembered what was behind every door, where every locker was, etc.
Turns out all you need to do to creep me out was to just leave everything alone...

The speech from The Dictator. Awesome quote, seriously. And it has only become more relevant with time. I would embed it here, but I don't know how to do that. So here. Take this link.

So many chills man. It's incredible.

The ending sequences of Second Sight. Even when I see it coming, it's still the best twist in history.

Also, Aphex Twin's ambient stuff.

The ending of Red vs Blue. The ending of any good series tends to give me bittersweet chills, especially if it was a long-runner.

Well theres that one speech by Charlie Chaplin (and thanks to this thread I've watched it 4 times this evening, gets me EVERY time).

King Theoden's Helm's Deep and Pelennor Field speeches (helped by the rousing music).

The ending of Portal 2.

Saving a certain someone's life in DE:HR.

Half Life 2 and episodes. All the feels.

Plenty of songs from the LOTR and Halo soundtracks have that effect on me, but I think this scene from LOTR: the return of the king is the worst--

"the grey rain curtain this world folds back, and all turns to silver glass- and then you see it. White shores, and beyond, a far green country..."

Star Wars Episode 2: The Republic invasion on Geonosis
Star wars Episode 4: The death star trench run
And Basically every major cut scene in Mass Effect 3

There is probably one moment, I always know it's coming and oh my god is it trope centric, but dear lord everytime it leaves me on the edge of my seat and was the one of the only things that ever got me like that;

Sonic the Comic, issue 80, Running Wild. To understand why this, you have to understand 2 things about British comics.... ALL British comics, at their worst, they are absolute drek and you wouldn't even wipe your arse with them, at their best, they blow literally EVERYTHING EVER IN THE ENTIRE GOD DAMN UNIVERSE AND BEYOND away. The scene, Super Sonic screaming in from the air as a golden fireball of sheer destructive force and unleashed psychosis, yelling the phrase; "AMY ROSE PREPARE TO DIE!" - Yeah our Supes was a psychotic bad ass, with laser eyes.
I was 9 years old, I'm currently 26 and that one panel, still resonates with me today like no other thing in history I've read, even Judge Dredd; America.

Speaking of Dredd, seeing this at the cinema, in 3D.


There are certain moments in movies, some beautiful, some compelling that send those shivers down ones spine, this was my favourite type... this was the "Shit got real!" chills from the movie Dredd deserved.

Anytime this song from MGS4 plays:

Everytime I think about these quotes.

"Is there life in the universe? Or are we alone? Either way, the idea is staggering." - Arthur C. Clark.

"Measuring the difference of intelligence between an Einstein and a Village Idiot is like measuring the difference in centimeters the height amongst species of giants." - Eiliezer Yukowsky

And these two Terry Pratchett Quotes by his character Death. (warning, Death talks in all caps.)

LORD, WE KNOW THAT THERE IS NO GOOD ORDER EXCEPT IN THAT IN WHICH WE CREATE. THERE IS NO HOPE, BUT US. THERE IS NOT MERCY, BUT US. THERE IS NO JUSTICE, THERE IS JUST US. ALL THINGS THAT ARE, ARE OURS. BUT WE MUST CARE, FOR IF WE DO NOT CARE WE DO NOT EXIST, AND IF WE DO NOT EXIST THAN THERE IS NOTHING BUT BLIND OBLIVION, AND EVEN OBLIVION MUST END ONE DAY. LORD, WILL YOU GRANT ME TIME FOR THE PROPER BALANCE OF THINGS? TO RETURN WHAT WAS GIVEN, FOR THE SAKE OF PRISONERS AND THE FLIGHT OF BIRDS? LORD, WHAT CAN THE HARVEST HOPE FOR, WITHOUT THE CARE OF THE REAPER MAN? - Death (From Reaper Man by Terry Pratchett)

YES. AS PRACTICE. YOU HAVE TO START OUT LEARNING TO BELIEVE THE LITTLE LIES.
"So we can believe the big ones?"
YES. JUSTICE. MERCY. DUTY. THAT SORT OF THING.
"They're not the same at all!"
YOU THINK SO? THEN TAKE THE UNIVERSE AND GRIND IT DOWN TO THE FINEST POWDER AND SIEVE IT THROUGH THE FINEST SIEVE AND THEN SHOW ME ONE ATOM OF JUSTICE, ONE MOLECULE OF MERCY. AND YET- Death waved a hand. AND YET YOU ACT AS IF THERE IS SOME IDEAL ORDER IN THE WORLD, AS IF THERE IS SOME . . . SOME RIGHTNESS IN THE UNIVERSE BY WHICH IT MAY BE JUDGED.
"Yes, but people have got to believe that, or what's the point-"
MY POINT EXACTLY. - Conversation between Susan Sto Helit and Death (from Hogfather by Terry Pratchett.)

Oh and this scene.

Might have more, but those are some of my favorites.

I agree with the Lord of the Rings scenes already posted, but I have to add this one, too.

Secondly, this scene from Battlestar Galactica...

Last, and foremost, any time Lilium plays in Elfen Lied in general, and this video in particular. I don't want to embed the video, because it has graphic violence (is that against Forum rules?), but here is the link... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2XWIx8KEnVo

He died from being shot in the leg by a sentry turret and falling, after rescuing Chell. In a interview, a writer at Valve didn't confirm Rattmann status. But early in Portal 2 you see more drawings and dens, suggesting he may still be among the facility.

Pretty freaky stuff
O.o

Sir Pootis:
Anytime I this song from MGS4 plays:

Oh boy... when this started playing as Snake took the Operator out of his pocket and looked at the bullet...

Geuss I'm a bit weird because these are some of mine

Poping in the rush 2 cartridge for the N64 and watching the intro...

The 1995 original starwars trilogy trailer for the VHS which played on every tape in the box, just before the movie started- (Probably because these VHS tapes were my first starwars experience, my mom recommended them too me, and my first question at 7 years old was "whats starwars ?" Followed by ...(o)__(o)....(O)-(O)...ERROR NEuRONS Rapidly OsciLLaTIng $%^%%#$^$%^%!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ERROR ERROR ERROR 15 pounds of SUGAR ANaMonTH On 28 hours of slEEzp@^$$%%!&&$# DOPAMINE OVEEEERRRRLOOOOOOOOAAAD!!!!!! USER ERROR DETECTED... BREAKING CIRCUIT. And that's why I'm crazy.
Anyway since I'm computarded here is the URL http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cej76uN053M
VERY, FIRST, TIME... The mantra of my child hood...

Anyway...
Songs-
Baker street, not sure why but it just gets me every time...
eighteen wheels and a dozen roses, elenor rigby, the wreck of the edmund fitzgerald, sultans of swing, High Hopes, Eric hetherly's counting flowers, Crazy train, people are strange...

Anime -
The intro to cowboy bebop... which I saw on adult swim, also like my third anime, first was dragonball at a freinds house in 96'or 7' I think second was outlawstar on midnight run. The intro for ergoy proxy, intro and closing for black lagoon and the intro for paranoia agent, heh...

Gusty Garden Galaxy theme, it's amazingly beautiful.

(vidya snip)

Oh boy... when this started playing as Snake took the Operator out of his pocket and looked at the bullet...

(moar vidya snip)

Oh god, I just noticed my awful grammar.

OT: Another one, for completely different reasons, is the cinema burning scene from Inglorious Basterds. (Couldn't find any proper footage for this one.)

"I never said thank you."
"And you'll never have to."

Batman Begins = Best Batman movie and best Superhero Origin movie ever.

Also this. I know that Attack of the Clones is by far the worst of the Prequels, but dammit if it doesn't have some knockout scenes. Particularly, this:

In one moment, the galaxy is changed forever. The birth of the Empire and the Rebellion in one scene, one dominant, the other subtle. Watch Bail Organa closely during the final pan. The first spark of revolution born unseen beside the overbearing Empire.

And the swelling of the music as the Clones board the ships, marching off to war? To die for.

Ezio's Family from the ACII OST. Beautiful. My favorite video game song hands down.

The end of Telltale's The Walking Dead.

The scene in Moonrise Kingdom where all of the kids are walking out of the church in slow motion.

Among many, many more. These are just off the top of my head.

The Protector 4 minute unbroken fight sequence, it's pretty much Martial Arts porn.

Relish in Chaos:
The scene where Mustang repeatedly incinerates Lust to death in Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.

The intro theme in Final Fantasy VII.

Fullmetal Alchemist brotherhood is amazing..

Oh man so many feels, mine are:

In ME2 when Kaidan turned his back on Shepard on Horizon
A Future for the Krogan from the ME3 Soundtrack
In LOTR: Fellowship of the Ring when Sam nearly drowns chasing after Frodo
Gladiator: "My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius..."

and...

every time the Stanley Cup is raised

Erja_Perttu:

This gets me every time. People don't make speeches like that anymore.

Damn it, I was about to post that! D;

It gives me chills every time as well. =/

I wish I had met Charlie Chaplin when he was still alive. The only thing I'm able to say is I live where he set up a small film studio (Niles, California; now Fremont, California).

OT: Aside from Chaplin's film The Great Dicator, I would also be Chinatown's famous "I'm her mother AND her sister!" part, and also the film [b]The Blind Side[/u], when the family brings in the homeless Black guy.
My father was homeless for four years of his life, so homelessness is something that is very personal to me (and him obviously).

As said by others, the speech of the Great Dictator, from The Great Dictator.

It's uncomfortably relevant, and seeing as how this is coming from a man known for being a silent comedian, it says a lot, at least to me.

cold weather :P


yep. the banking system is ridiculous.
