10 Most Unforgettable Water Scenes Of All Time (Titanic, Jaws, Inception!)

Everyone feels differently about the water. One person’s paradise can be another’s
nightmare, especially if they can’t swim. But regardless of the camp you’re floating
in, we’re willing to bet that some of the scenes on this list will stay with you forever. Here are the 10 Most Unforgettable Water Scenes
of All Time. Titanic, Sinking Ship
Titanic is one of the most epic love stories ever, and made box office history when it
was released in 1997. James Cameron’s use of special effects was
amazing throughout, but it’s the sequence where the ship begins to sink that stands
out the most. After a fatal collision, people on the ship
are seen either scrambling for safety, or preparing to meet their maker. Occasionally the movie cuts to a perspective
from one of the lifeboats, and the magnitude of the situation becomes even more extreme. The tragic scene is an all-encompassing experience,
especially if you have surround sound. Jaws, “Chrissie’s Last Swim”
Drinking, darkness, and the ocean are three things that do not go together. And if you’ve ever seen Jaws, you’ve probably
thought twice about a late night swim. If you haven’t, take the opportunity to
learn from Chrissie’s mistakes, because you never know when a human-eating shark is
going pop in for some noms. And when you’re the only target because
your stupid drunk boyfriend fell asleep on the beach, you’ll wish you had listened
to us. For a movie set almost entirely on the water,
there were lots of scenes to choose from, but this one scarred us for life. Casino Royale, Beach Bond
The Bond movies aren’t known for their subtlety. Fast cars, fist fights, and explosions make
up more than half the appeal. A new actor plays 007 every so often, and
the change-ups always make entertainment headlines. The one thing that is for sure, is that there
will be a sexy new Bond girl in every installment. But in Daniel Craig’s inaugural appearance
as the super-spy, he wasn’t content to let the ladies have all the attention. Usually there’s a gratuitous shot of a bikini-clad
vixen, Casino Royale evened the score a little bit. Not only did it mark the return of short swim
trunks for dudes, it reinforced that the actor was… physically capable… of playing the
part. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, The Second
Task Magic is awesome. It’s intricate and varied, and every writer
uses it differently. In the world of Harry Potter, every wizard
does too. During the Triwizard tournament, fans watch
as a handful of special students compete for the title. The participants are given tasks with only
their wits to guide them. The second task has the wizards on a mission
to save a loved one hidden somewhere in the Black Lake. Being a magical universe, there are some cool
creatures lurking in the depths. And watching as the champions bend magic to
their will is also pretty awesome. The Abyss, Brigman Drowns
Ahh James Cameron – we meet again. Except this time, its something that’s already
underwater that sinks. And there may or may not be aliens involved. The diving team in The Abyss seemingly hit
every single underwater snag possible, and it’s a pretty intense movie as a result. After a submarine sinks, American Navy SEALs
team up with the crew of an underwater oil rig to investigate what happened. At one point two of the crew become stranded
with only enough oxygen for one of them, and the other drowns while being towed en route
to safety. And the high-tension CPR scene that follows
is equally emotional. Singing in the Rain
Weather has a bad reputation in Hollywood, and is the foundation for a lot of tragic
stories. Directors love using rain to convey sadness,
or to give the scene a gloomy little punch. So it’s easy to get caught up in the illusion
that rain is the enemy. But the truth is, some people are just better
at finding the sunshine. The Gene Kelly classic Singing In The Rain
serves as a reminder that happiness affords a certain level of invincibility. And suddenly you’re impervious to the annoyances
involved in everyday life. So the next time you curse the weather gods
for raining on your parade, turn the tables by dancing in it. Cast Away, Losing Wilson
When Cast Away was released, people were wondering if one person could actually carry an entire
movie. In Hollywood when you want something done
right, you hire Tom Hanks. The veteran actor captivated audiences to
the point of hypnosis. It hurts to watch his character struggle,
and viewers are drawn in by his strategic survival methods. When he feels triumphant, we do too. So when he loses his only friend on the way,
it hits the audience just as hard. Once you step back and realize that millions
of people have cried over a volleyball, the talent on display is hard to ignore. Inception, Falling Van
There are a million unforgettable moments in Christopher Nolan’s Inception. But the way the movie plays with its timeline
can be hard to follow for some. Even though one of the characters gives an
explanation, sometimes it’s just easier to show people what you mean. The first dream level is set in a rainy city
where the team spends the majority of their time strapped down in the back of a van as
Yusuf hauls ass to a bridge. For everyone to wake up, the van has to fall
off the side and hit the water. When it finally goes overboard, Nolan draws
it out. Cutting back to it between scenes to remind
us that the clock is ticking. Plus, the suspended gravity created in level
1 is the reason we get that awesome fight sequence in level 2. The Little Mermaid, Under the Sea
The Disney archives are a treasure trove of musical moments. Some are catchier than others, but the soundtrack
for The Little Mermaid is nothing but gold. And since all the best arguments are delivered
through song, Sebastian sings to Ariel about how awesome it is to live underwater. Under the Sea is a clever tune designed to
show the mermaid all the amazing things she’d be leaving behind if she lived on land. And after listening to it on repeat for an
hour, we kind of agree. That many happy fish can’t be wrong. Fast Times at Ridgemont High, The Pool
All instances of hot girls getting out of pools in slow motion lead back to one place:
Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Phoebe Cates and the infamous red bikini have
been turning a lot of heads since the movies release in 1982. The scene featured heavily in the trailer,
and is still instantly recognizable today. Cates’ character appears topless in a fantasy,
then accidentally walks in on the person fantasizing. The scene is an odd mix of sexy and traumatic,
so we’re not sure how to feel. But we won’t forget it anytime soon. What do you think of our list? Know of any other unforgettable water scenes
