    i had this conversation with my friend the other day. for me, the only two i could think of off the top of my head were:

    reservoir dogs - when they're all walking after leaving the diner. with that music in the background...talk about coolness personified.

    the right stuff - when they're on the tarmac, all dressed in the astronaut suits. patriotism at it's finest.

    other votes?

    Armegeddon did an RS-type scene too.

    Swingers not only did a RD-type walk scene, they even said they were gonna do it.[​IMG]

    My personal fav: Jawbreaker. The only thing I remember about that movie was those hotties are walking down the school hall to the song "Yoo Hoo" by Imperial Teen. Nice.

    And don't forget the end of Buckaroo Banzai. Each character joins Buckaroo one by one as he walks down the LA River.

    Sandra Bullock in Miss Congeniality. Right after she gets made up and is walking out of the airport hanger. Slow motion hotness...with a trip to top it off. [​IMG]

    Entering the bar to the sound of "Hurricane" by Bob Dylan in Dazed and Confused

    Entering the school in Donnie Darko

    Not quite slow-walk, Moore like slow-run, but Bo Derek in 10

    Diana Lane in Unfaithful . More like a slow-trip.

    Again, not slow walk, but more like slow-bounce, the end credits of The Man Show [​IMG]

    Travis Bickle as he's walking in the New York crowd in Taxi Driver. Bernard Herrmann's remarkable score perfectly fits it, while the composition really shows his isolation as he's clearing standing out from the rest of the crowd.

    Tombstone

    On their way to the OK Corral w/ fire in the background.

    Also, a similar scene in

    A Bug's Life

    when Hopper figures out that the bird isn't real and gets mad. (again, w/ CG fire in background).

    The first one that leapt to mind for me - Face/Off, Niholas Cage getting out of the car on the airport tarmac.

    Some great scenes in this thread. Monsters Inc, Donnie Darko, Clockwork Orange - great scenes. What is it about slow walking that is so damn cool?

    Re: Rushmore - would that be Max walking out of the service elevator with the gum and the bee containers? Good scene.
