There’s no need to wait until Christmas for our A-list selection of memorable movie moments. Although Christmas movies are deemed to be bestsellers, a summer hit is also one to watch!

After all, there is genuinely something special about summer movies. Whether it is because everybody feels at their best in the sunshine, or perhaps because watching summer films reminds us of joy and pleasurable times spent with friends, family or our other halves, or even if we simply like the type of movies released in the summertime, whatever the reason, many summer movies make for a popular blockbuster hit.

What’s more, to celebrate summer movies even more this season, NeedaFixer have listed our top 10 summer movie moments from our favourite summer films.

Have a look at our top 10 summer movie moments below:

  1. Jaws (1975): The Opening Scene (The first attack)

Jaws simply has to be one of the most famous summer movies of all time, although it is far from sunshine and smiles. Directed by Steven Spielberg, of course, all the scenes are meticulously planned and utterly thrilling. However, the summer movie moment we’ve picked from Jaws simply has to be the first attack in the opening scene that led to the death of one late night swimmer, Susan Backlinie (Chrissie Watkins) when she leaves a social beach party for a midnight dip.

Of course, she is pulled under the water by a great white shark, never to be seen again while her romantic interest lies adjacent on the beach. The scene is accompanied by the smashing and award-winning Jaws soundtrack, and is really an opening film clip that nobody will forget. Although the scene helps define what makes for a blockbuster movie, it may not be a film clip you’ll want to think of before getting in the sea on your summer holiday!

  1. The Parent Trap (1998): The Isolation Cabin

From the Ocean to the countryside, if you were born in the early 90s you’ll have, no doubt, been a huge fan of The Parent Trap, the film in which Lindsey Lohan stars as identical twins Hallie Parker and Annie James who, estranged due to the separation of their mum and dad, meet for the first time at an American kid’s summer camp and then go on to trick their parents and swap places on their return home. When Hallie goes home with their mother to England, and Annie to her American home with the girl’s father, it isn’t too long before the parents discover their prank and get to know their other daughter.

A movie full of laughter, tricks, love and fun, it is difficult to pick the greatest summer moment in this movie, particularly because it appeals to adults and children alike!

We have, however, chosen a scene and that is a real entertainer, and that’s the scene before Hallie and Annie are sent to the summer camp’s Isolation Cabin. The scene consists of Hallie and her friends playing a trick on Annie and her cabin mates while they are sleeping, only to discover that the headmistress of the camp, Polly Holliday, organises a surprise inspection and falls victim to Hallie’s prank.

The pranks include syrup in the bed, water bombs, a large bucket of liquid falling when the door opens, string all over the cabin, mousse in the hair and more…only to be described as utter chaos…but a fantastic scene to watch, especially with children (so long as they don’t get any ideas, of course!).

  1. Hairspray (2007): Good Morning Baltimore

Bringing music to the summer season, Hairspray is definitely one not to miss! Complete with music, comedy, romance, bright colours, clashing outfits and crazy hair, Hairspray will bring even more cheer to the summer.

And the scene we love most of all? The beginning! Main character Tracey Turnblad sings ‘Good Morning Baltimore!” as she goes to school. Following her morning routine with song and dance, the movie exudes feel-good vibes from the very start!

  1. Saving Private Ryan (1998): Omaha Beach Scene

Saving Private Ryan offers a completely different emotional level to that of Hairspray, of course. If you need a pick-me-up movie, you’d opt for Hairspray, however, if you are in the mood, Saving Private Ryan is truly magnificent movie that’s well worth a watch this summer.

It is incredibly difficult to pick a top scene from such a dramatic movie, however, in terms of filming techniques that really encapsulates the courage and strength it took for soldiers to fight in the war, we simply had to highlight the Omaha Beach Scene.

Fantastically filmed, the scene effectively captures the destructive and petrifying scenes that were faced by the soldiers during the Normandy Landings, or D-Day, on June 6th, 1944.

  1. Men in Black (1997): Agent J’s First Test Scene

Agent J’s First Test Scene introduces James Darrell Edwards III (Will Smith) to the iconic movie Men in Black and, immediately, the audience become big fans of his character.

He seems out of place compared to the other candidates, wearing casual jeans and a bright red jacket. The scene ends with him pulling a table across the room to lean on to fill in his test form.

  1. Inglourious Basterds (2009): Italian Scene

Of course, we had to mention a Tarantino movie when selecting a top summer movie. Inglourious Basterds is sensational, thrilling and bloody in places, however, we’ve selecting our top scene based on hilarity.

The Italian Scene features The Basterds pretending to be Italian, but if we’re honest not quite convincing Col. Landa who remains in complete control of the situation and prevails in his knowledge of the Italian language.

  1. Die Hard (1988): Welcome to the Party, Pal

If you are hoping to watch an action movie this summer then Die Hard is definitely the film of choice, even though it is set around Christmas time.

We have selected the Welcome to the Party, Pal scene because it highlights how truly exciting this film is. Haven’t seen it yet? Then make this summer your first viewing!

  1. Parenthood (1989): Obsessive Behaviour

Whether you are a parent or not your heart will most definitely be warmed by the movie Parenthood.

Featuring Steve Martin as perfectionist dad Gil Buckman, the ‘Obsessive Behaviour’ scene finds him searching for his son’s retainer. A highly strung young boy, it is through the eyes of Buckman’s wife (Karen Buckman, played by Mary Steenburgen) that we see that their son’s anxious nature may indeed be a result of his father. You can really see the significance of family in this scene. The film is both educational and entertaining!

  1. Lilo and Stitch 2: Stich has a Glitch Touching Me! (2005)

Definitely one that pleases the kids, Lilo and Stitch 2: Stich has a Glitch is a summer movie that offers fun, eccentricity and mischief all-in-one!

Here at NeedaFixer, we think the best scene has to be Touching Me! When Lilo and Stitch are fighting over touching each other. Funny and cute, what’s not to love?

  1. Unrelated (2007): Discussing relationships scene

If you would like to watch a bit more Tom Hiddleston on screen this summer, then Unrelated is the film for you. The scene we have picked, that exudes his confidence (and slight, but charming, arrogance in character!) is the scene where he is discussing relationships and marriage with main character Anna (Kathryn Worth).

So, there you have it! Our top 10 summer movie moments! We’re sure they’ll be at least one film in our list that you haven’t seen and, therefore, we challenge you to watch it this summer and see if the scene we have selected stands out to you like it has to us. Perhaps you’ll discover another fantastic summer movie moment this summer? Why not let us know? We love discussing films, movies, film techniques and more.

But, for now, have a smashing summer and enjoy those magical movie moments!
