As someone who grew up solely on the Original Trilogy, it pains me to see Star Wars movies atop both lists and then think about that abomination known as the Sequel Trilogy.

Thor arriving in Wakanda should be on there

re: The Top 20 Most Epic Modern Movie Moments
The Classic list is solid, this one doesn't feel as Epic. Like it's maybe just best movie moments?"

Spider-Man 2? Kill Bill? Logan?

Feels weirdly not epic.

Raiders and SPR should be higher.

The Motorcyle Chase is more "epic" than the Bank robbery in TDK. John Wick 3's beginning should be on the list. That or the house fight.

The second sequence in 300 should also be on the list.

Sadly missing The Raid and the hallway fight from Oldboy.

First omissions that come to mind are Thor arriving in Wakanda and Duel of the Fates. Maybe even something from Independence Day. I’m sure there’s some I’m forgetting since these type lists are hard to rank. Hard to argue with any of the top 5 aside from maybe their order

You have to draw a line somewhere, I guess. How does someone 17 years 364 days old grow from a kid to an adult overnight? How does someone gain or lose an entire day by crossing the 50 mile Bering Strait?

“Freedom!!!” - Braveheart, 1995

One of these is 15 seconds of craziness and one of them is like 40 minutes long.

re: The Top 20 Most Epic Modern Movie Moments
Calling some of these “moments” is a bit stupid, there are 30-40 minute sequences in here.

Ride of the Rohirrim should be 2 though because it was an actual moment, not Helm’s Deep which was a 45 minute battle.

Nothing from E.T.

No 106 miles to Chicago, full tank of gas...from Blues Brothers

No blood serum test from The Thing.

No big reveal from The Crying Game. Ok, I'm joking there.

Just feels like a crap list.

I would have thought the Andy Dufrene escape would be on there.
