    Everyone singing "Tiny Dancer" in Almost Famous will *always* do it for me.

    🚨Spoilers ahead! 🚨

    1. Ratatouille (2007) — "Anton Ego's flashback"

    Anton Ego is transported back to his childhood when he eats ratatouille; as a sad kid, he felt happy once he ate it
    Disney / Pixar

    "The flashback in Ratatouille is so beautifully done for a Pixar movie. The emotional expression on Anton Ego's face is so interesting to see."

    4. Coco (2017) — "Remember Me"

    Miguel plays Héctor's song for Mama Coco; he's kneeling down beside her, while she happily sings the song next to him in a rocking chair
    Disney / Pixar

    "It's so, so good when you see the realization in Mamá Coco's eyes that she’s listening to a song her father sang to her as a child. She and Miguel are both overcome with emotion, and then she finally pulls out a hidden picture of Héctor. The warm colors in this scene and the attention to detail (I love seeing Mamá Coco with wrinkly hands) are too beautiful."

    A24

    "The last scene in Lady Bird gives me chills every time I watch it, no matter what. The combination of the music, the dialogue, and the shot of Lady Bird and her mom driving in Sacramento with the same expressions on their faces makes for a cinematic masterpiece."

    16. Queen & Slim (2019) — "Juke joint"

    Queen and Slim are dancing slowly together in a dimly lit juke joint, a lot of tension between the two, feeling connected for the first time

    20th Century Fox

    "The end of Man on Fire when Creasy trades himself for Lupita and they say goodbye is chilling. They show him in the car, closing his eyes and dropping the medal, while 'Una Palabra' plays. It's magnificent."

    19. Gone Girl (2014) — "Cool girl monologue"

    Amy in a dingy public bathroom, shaking a hair dye bottle, completely determined to get revenge on her husband
    20th Century Fox

    "The big plot twist scene in Gone Girl when Amy launches into her big monologue is my single favorite moment in film. The whole scene is filmed beautifully and Rosamund Pike’s performance is perfection. David Fincher proves he's the best director by taking books that seem like they would be impossible to adapt to film without giving away the crucial plot twists."
