      Can I have a tiny nitpick? Regarding Inception. Arthur's scenes are not intercut with the "real world" but with the first dream level. Real world: everybody on the plane. 1st dream level: Yusuf and the car chase. 2nd level: Arthur in the hotel. 3rd level: Eames in the mountains. Limbo: Dom, Saito and Ariadne.

      Prof X V.S. Jean Grey psychic battle. One of the best scenes in all X-Men films...

      I would add a scene from "Smokey And The Bandit". The bridge jump with the Trans Am. No FX, done for real.....The Bandit doesn't need FX!

      @timotey In fact, there are theories that the plane is another dream level, created by Michael Caine's Miles in order for Cobb to wake into reality. Could be here for days!

      I was expecting the scene 2001 in where the flight attendant carry foodtrays walks upside down to occupy one of the top 3 positions.

      Trinitys' motorcycle takedown at the beginning of Matrix : Reloaded, is far impressive than Bland Widows generic smash and grab..

      Okay so 2001 one is not even on the list. WTF! Gravity or lack of it in this visually stunning classic should have been number 1 on this list. Not only was gravity defied, but it was all done with practical photographic effects.

      Honestly, I would put money on the most reviled of the X-Men franchise is Origins: Wolverine. Also, Even though I am one of the few people that did not enjoy E.T. and I do agree with the odd fact 2001 is missing from the list, there's no denying that the "bicycle moon" sequence is the most iconic moment to fit in this category.

      I'm a little disappointed that one of the earliest gravity defying scenes was not on this list...Fred Astaire dancing on the ceiling/walls in Royal Wedding!
