The Usual Suspects has the most memorable film moment?

usualsus2.jpgLists are all subjective, therefore to each individual person various choices are always going to leave you scratching your head. SPOILERS AHEAD FOR THOSE WHO HAVEN'T SEEN USUAL SUSPECTS A new list from The Guardian Online lists the Top 100 Most Memorable film moments in the history of cinema AS CHOSEN BY 15,000 READERS and their choice for number one is very strange indeed. They believe the most memorable scene out of a hundred years of cinema to be that scene in The Usual Suspects when actor Chazz Palminteri realizes exactly who Keyser Soze is at the end of the film. I'm really shocked by that. Out of all the great moments in film, that is truly the most memorable ever? I can't believe so many people voted for that moment! Here is their top ten list...
1. The Usual Suspects - Keyser Soze revealtion 2. Psycho - The shower scene 3. The Third Man - Orson Welles' entrance to the movie 4. 2001: A Space Oddyseey - Flying bone to ship moment 5. Apocalypse Now - Dawn helicopter attack 6. Blade Runner - Time to die scene 7. The Great Escape - Steve McQueen's bike escape 8. Casablanca - Rick and Ilsa part at the airport 9. Planet of the Apes - Ending 10. Some Like it Hot - No-one's perfect line
Some great moments in their for sure, but really The Usual Suspects? Other great moments that I think should have made the Top Ten...
20. Taxi Driver - You talking to me 36. The Shining - Here's Johnny!! 58. The Empire Strikes Back - I AM YOUR FATHER (seriously, 58? No way)
NO APPEARANCE FOR INDY JONES AND THAT OPENING SCENE WITH THE IDOL FROM RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK IS SIMPLY CRIMINAL I TELL YOU!!!Full list can be found here. Do you agree/disagree with The Guardian's poll? I've never been all that fond of The Usual Suspects personally and I don't know if it's because I'm the only person alive who seemed to know that it was Kevin Spacey all along or because it's just a very average film. Did no-one else see that Spacey was Soze? I thought it was so frikkin obvious it was untrue! source - imdb
