25 Triumphant Movie Moments
I recently did a list collecting together 25 of the most triumphant moments in movie history for the good folks at Den of Geek . As ever it was hard to narrow them down to just 25. Luckily for us all there are plenty of uplifting moments in cinema to choose from:
A few weeks ago we published a list of traumatic moments that have appeared in family films. Of course we all enjoyed that waltz through painful childhood nightmare fuel, but the question was raised, why not do a list of slightly more positive and upbeat movie scenes instead? Thus, this: 25 of the most triumphant movie moments of all time.
Everyone has that go-to feel-good movie which they stick on when life is getting them down. Had a bad week at work? Stick Four Weddings on. Football team lose 5-0 and get soaked through on your way home? Time for Baseketball. Leave a tenner in the pocket of your jeans that just went in the wash and thus suddenly realise that life is a never-ending cycle of pain and misery that you can do nothing to stop until eventually you fall into the sweet and merciful embrace of death? Maid In Manhattan.
Films can pull us out of that funk, give us that piece of much needed inspiration and generate that extra little boost we all sometimes need. Even if a film isn’t a constant cavalcade of laughter and warmth, there can often be that one moment in a movie that will still get your blood pumping, produce an involuntary grin and maybe even a celebratory fist pump.
