There Will Be Blood The final line spoken by Plainview: "I'm Finished".
My favorite moment is also from Braveheart where William Wallace is giving his rousing speech to try to entice the clans to fight the English. The part that starts "Lying in your bed...."
“Let It Ride” is one of Paramount’s hidden treasures . I was turned on to this movie by a friend and it didn’t disappoint. I like the whole movie, but the scene of “Trotter” putting his first winnings in his shoes in the restroom and then walks out is pretty funny. I also like how he can calculate in his head how much money people make selling, tip tickets, making room for people to stand in front of the rail, ect……
A seemingly carefree, self-satisfied Julian laying out his planned wardrobe.
One of my faves is TARGETS and specifically the end in which Karloff saves the day at the drive-in from the sniper. I felt that not only the whole film but the end is poignant for wrapping up Karloff's career.

(ps - I don't remember if we're allowed to specify which format we'd prefer, but I'd personally pref the blu-ray)
A great Paramount movie moment is the scene in William Wyler's CARRIE (shot in 1950, released in 1952) where Laurence Olivier confesses to Jennifer Jones that he has misled her in order to cause her to accompany him to the train station. As he begs her to run away with him for his one chance for happiness, the Aaron Copeland score reaches its emotional zenith as she ultimately decides to go with him.At this point, the tragic downfall of Olivier's character begins.
(By the way, thanks Paramount for adding the missing scene from the European release version. If the originally shot ending of Olivier's suicide exists, this would make a great special feature on a future re-release)
There nothing that can top Groucho Marx spelling out the rules of his administration ( of Freedonia) with the song "Whatever it is I'm against it." Found in Duck Soup.
Check this thread for other opinions on this film
The whole scene in the train station.. the tension leading up to the accountant coming in. The mother with the baby carriage. That whole scene is insane. I'll pop the movie in just to watch that.
oh.. and here's a link to the thread for the review of The Untouchables on Blu-ray: www.hometheaterforum.com/forum/thread/258501/htf-blu-ray-review-the-untouchables
A favorite scene (and really quite brilliant) from Paramount's THE PRESIDENT'S ANALYST (1967) has fugitive title character James Coburn making out with hippie chick Jill Banner in a country meadow. Meanwhile, an international array of spies and assassins are creeping up to either capture or kill him, each one getting fatally dispatched by a successive rival agent, all while fellow hippie Barry McGuire plays acoustic guitar and sings his song, "Inner-Manipulations", completely oblivious to the nearby mayhem, though the song's lyrics comment on the action. The final master shot in this sequence is perfect, like a live-action New Yorker cartoon by Charles Addams.

Star Trek III The Search For Spock blu ray - Stealing the Enterprise. I'm watching this right now! : )
Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country
the scene where Kirk and the shapeshifter are fighting after she(he?) assumes Kirk's shape
Kirk: I can't believe I kissed you.
Fake-Kirk: Must have been your life-long ambition.
I always crack up at that line.
Here's the press release announcing my favourite franchise on Blu-ray
Thats the spirit!
Jonathan Livingston Seagull:
"Lonely looking sky, lonely sky, lonely looking sky..."
The Hunt for Red October After Captain Borodin is shot and dying he says, "I would like to have seen Montana." I like it cause I live in Montana.
Almost didn't catch an earlier post! So, I'll go with Varsity Blues and the dramatic scene where Bud Kilmer walks dejected down the hallway after being told off by Moxon during halftime. Surprisingly good flick. Info on the film found on HTF here: http://www.hometheaterforum.com/products/varsity-blues-blu-ray
That's Chinatown Jake.
The scene in "Paper Moon" where Madeline Kahn as Miss Trixie Delight makes her first appearance is one of my favorite entrances in any movie.
Three Days of the Condor (which deserved a much better Blu-Ray edition than non-restored, featureless DVD-to-BD port it got):
The scene where Redford, as CIA researcher Joe Turner, realizes a seemingly benign mailman is really an assassin in disguise because the guy's wearing the wrong shoes. I don't think they ever explain it on-screen, but it is one of those "they really gave this some thought" moments where they not only get an obscure fact right, but help develop a character at the same time. Turner is a bookworm and an information sponge who just absorbs and retains all sorts of useless information. So when he looks down and sees that the "mailman" is wearing sneakers it sets off an alarm in his mind because somewhere along the line he learned that postal workers are required to wear steel-toed work shoes or boots and that sneakers are specifically forbidden.
Maybe someday there will be a retrospective set of Redford films with commentaries and documentaries and Condor will get a better release. (The film is a kind of odd companion piece to All the President's Men. It was a fun "popcorn picture" the Redford did while waiting to start production on the Watergate film. But even the throw away thriller had plenty of 70s political intrigue and paranoia. Would make for a great double feature with Warren Beatty's The Parallax View - also available from Paramount home video.)
The scene in Mother when Albert Brooks explains to Debbie Reynolds:
"The freezer was a good invention, but it's not supposed to be used for everything. That's why it's smaller than the refrigerator."
Star Trek III: The Search for Spock.
While regarded by some as one of the lesser entries in the Star Trek film canon (http://www.hometheaterforum.com/forum/thread/103852/star-trek-iii-the-search-for-spock-how-does-it-rate), it has a classic Shatner line reading:
"Klingon bastards killed my son. Klingon bastards killed my son. Klingon bastards...."
Truly, a moment of supreme Shatnerian scenery munching.
