    Yeah, I know, but I got stuck on Raiders of the Lost Ark. The whole movie is practically one long action sequence, so I wasn't sure what to list. [​IMG]

    OK, I'll try to narrow it down.

    Star Wars - attack on the Death Star

    North by Northwest - attack of the cropduster

    Raiders of the Lost Ark - the desert chase sequence I guess

    Second:

    Kill Bill
    Adventures of Robin Hood
    Unforgiven
