It varies between scenes and extended sequences, but I'll throw mine out early then:

Col. Landa at the LaPadite Farm from Inglourious Basterds
The Goy’s Teeth from A Serious Man
The Gang Meets The Awesome Cameo from Zombieland
Ryan Meets Alex from Up in the Air
The Origin of Dr. Manhattan from Watchmen
Black Dynamite storms the island and The White House from Black Dynamite
Carl/Ellie’s Montage from Up
The Narada attacks the Kelvin from Star Trek
The Na’vi/Sky People Battle from Avatar
Tom Dances to Hall & Oates from 500 Days of Summer

I should add a scene from The Lovely Bones on there, but there are just too many too choose from.

This is definitely tops for me as well.

And very high on my Top Scenes for the decade too. I'd like to save this stuff for the Year-end thread, whenever we get around to it, but I'll do the scenes now at least since you threw yours out there.

Others this year:
Ponyo causing the tsunami, running after Sosuke - Ponyo
Jake and Neytiri vs. Quaritch, in the shack following - Avatar
Final scene, Billie and The LANG! - Public Enemies
Fanny's first letter from Keats - Bright Star
"Almost There" - The Princess and the Frog
Dr. Manhattan Origin - Watchmen
Larry visits sexy neighbor - A Serious Man
Dillinger's death - Public Enemies
"Do fish have dreams?", aquarium - Bad Lieutenant

And I seriously couldn't pick a single scene out of Black Dynamite above the others, even if I wanted to. I was just laughing my ass off non-stop.

Also, I know why you picked that part from Up, but I think at least for the decade list we should specify, no montages, series of fragmented moments, etc. Ditto for the extended sequences like the Avatar battle.

Also, most anticipated of 2010? Should be mentioned somewhere eventually.

Solid list, and I agree with the extended sequence thing. I'd probably put the Nigga Elk scene from Bad Lieutenant on mine if I had to sub one in.

God, I spent hours compiling a 100-film deep list on a Facebook note, I'll throw out the 25. I'm not sure of The Talking Cure or True Grit will be 2010 releases, but they'll stay on here until I hear otherwise:

1. Inception (Dir. Christopher Nolan)
+ Leo DiCaprio, Marion Cotillard, Ellen Page, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Cillian Murphy
2. Shutter Island (Dir. Martin Scorsese)
+ Leo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Michelle Williams, Ben Kingsley
3. The Tree of Life (Dir. Terrence Malick)
+ Sean Penn, Brad Pitt
4. True Grit (Dir. Joel & Ethan Coen)
+ Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, Josh Brolin
5. Your Highness (Dir. David Gordon Green)
+ Danny McBride, James Franco, Natalie Portman, Zooey Deschanel
6. Kick-Ass (Dir. Matthew Vaughn)
+ Aaron Johnson, McLovin', Nicolas Cage
7. You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger (Dir. Woody Allen)
+ Naomi Watts, Anthony Hopkins, Josh Brolin, Antonio Banderas
8. Toy Story 3 (Dir. Lee Unkrich)
+ Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Michael Keaton
9. The Talking Cure (Dir. David Cronenberg)
+ Michael Fassbender, Christoph Waltz, Keira Knightley
10. Black Swan (Dir. Darren Aronofsky)
+ Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis, Vincent Cassel
11. Paul (Dir. Greg Mottola)
+ Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Seth Rogen, Kristen Wiig, Jason Bateman
12. Iron Man 2 (Dir. Jon Favreau)
+ Robert Downey Jr., Mickey Rourke, Don Cheadle, Sam Rockwell, Scarlett Johansson
13. The Ward (Dir. John Carpenter)
14. The Social Network (Dir. David Fincher)
+ Jesse Eisenberg, Justin Timberlake, Rashida Jones
15. Due Date (Dir. Todd Phillips)
+ Robert Downey Jr., Zach Galifiankis, Michelle Monaghan, Jamie Foxx
16. Howl (Dir. Rob Epstein & Jeffrey Friedman)
+ James Franco, Jon Hamm, Mary-Louise Parker
17. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (Dir. Edgar Wright)
+ Michael Cera, Anna Kendrick, Jason Schwartzman, Brandon Routh
18. The Other Guys (Dir. Adam McKay)
+ Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Sam Jackson, Michael Keaton
19. Red (Dir. Robert Schwentke)
+ Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, Mary-Louise Parker, John C. Reilly
20. The Rum Diary (Dir. Bruce Robinson)
+ Johnny Depp, Aaron Eckhart, Richard Jenkins
21. Tron Legacy (Dir. Joseph Kosinski)
+ Jeff Bridges, Michael Sheen
22. The Green Hornet (Dir. Michel Gondry)

23. Solitary Man (Dir. Brian Koppelman & David Levien)

24. The Town (Dir. Ben Affleck)

25. The Expendables (Dir. Sly Stallone)

This really deserves its own thread.

You little bastard. Now I know who does the big secret cameo in Zombieland. But you brought to my attention something I didn't realize before, that Michael Keaton will be gettin' nuts in Toy Story 3. So you somewhat redeemed yourself.

Also, a friend of mine who was lucky enough to attend this year's BNAT said Shutter Island was the tits.

Okay, cool. I found out about it months beforehand and still loved the shit out of that scene. It's pitch-perfect.

^^^ This.

Who gives a fuck about producers. These people are fools.

(except for when they awarded The Aviator over Million Dollar Baby)

I guess, though I'll be VERY surprised if either Star Trek or D9 make it in.

It's more about "successful" productions (usually financially) than any kind of artistic accomplishment. Which is why you don't see A Serious Man on there. A film that sadly hasn't even cracked $10 million in the U.S.

Anti-semites.

I'd be surprised, too, but I'd rather those two make it over Precious and Invictus, that's for sure.

Focus really dropped the ball on rolling out A Serious Man. It only played in my local indie theater for about 2 weeks in Tallahassee, and about 3 in Orlando, then disappeared. It's a hard movie to market, I guess, but just say it's a Coens movie and put it out on 2000 screens.
