I know you had issues with the film, but I've gotta put some scenes from Sunshine up here:
1. The scene where they come upon Mercury, and we watch it move across the face of the sun.
2. Captain Kaneda's death on the reflector shield.
3. The effects shots of the payload soaring into the sun.
Hot Fuzz -- Pretty much the entire film.
A Boy and his Dog -- The ending, in which our protagonist is faced with a decision of staying with his dying, undernourished and injured pooch (risking the dangers of the wastes) or running away with his new lady friend on a quest to find the mythical paradise "over the hill" -- and in awesome post-apocalyptic fashion chooses option C. Clips available on YouTube from a user named rchmedia: you'll be wanting to see the last four minutes of "9 of 10" and all "10 of 10" up to the credits (comes out to about five minutes of movie altogether).
There Will Be Blood -- Again, pretty much the entire film. The wordless opening scenes, where we see Plainview's blue-collar progression from lone miner to small operation working out a single well and the accident that leads to adoption of H.W., leading in to his excellent speech to the frustrated townspeople, and on.
2001: A Space Odyssey -- Just what do you think you are doing, Dave? Dave, I really think I am entitled to an answer to that question. I know everything hasn't been quite right with me, but I can assure you now -- very confidently -- that it's going to be all right again. I feel much better now. I really do. Look, Dave -- I can see you're really upset about this. I honestly think you ought to sit down calmly, take a stress pill and think things over. I know I've made some very poor decisions recently, but I can give you my complete assurance that my work will be back to normal. I've still got the greatest enthusiasm and confidence in the mission, and I want to help you. Dave, stop. Stop, will you. Stop, Dave. Will you stop, Dave? Stop, Dave. I'm afraid. I'm afraid, Dave. Dave. My mind is going. I can feel it. I can feel it. My mind is going. There is no question about it. I can feel it. I can feel it. I can feel it. I'm....afraid. Good afternoon. Gentlemen. I am a HAL 9000 computer. I became operational at the H-A-L lab in Irvana, Illinois, on the 12th of January, 1992. My instructor was Mr. Langley. And he taught me to sing a song. If you'd like to hear it, I can sing it for you. Yes, I'd like to hear it, Hal. Sing it for me. It's called, "Daisy." Daisy, Daisy. Give me your answer do. I'm half crazy all for the love of you. It won't be a stylish marriage. I can't afford the carrage but youu'lll llloooook swwwt ooon th seeat ooo aa icycle ilt or oo
I've got a lot more. They'll make it up eventually.
