Pretty much everyone out there has got opinions when it comes to movie and pretty much everyone is going to disagree over a lot of the big factors when it comes to movies, but thankfully websites like Rotten Tomatoes run survey where we can find out the true answer to what the majority of people think about certain issues. And then disagree over them again.

In fairness, only 25,000 people took part in this recent information gathering exercise (even though that’s a pretty low number of people who have seen movies, it’s still quite a lot for an internet survey) that determined that Heath Ledger’s performance as The Joker was the most iconic movie moment of the last 21 years, but that’s still more people that can agree on it than you and your mates down the pub. The particular scene that was picked was the first one where The Joker is introduced, which is pretty damn awesome when you think about it. In fact, ,why not watch it again to remind yourself?
You can find the other top moments listed below that:
- The Joker from The Dark Knight
- The Snap from Avengers: Infinity War
- “I see dead people” from The Sixth Sense
- Carl and Ellie in the opening of Up
- Avengers assemble in New York from Marvel’s The Avengers
- The government lobby scene from The Matrix
- Gollum talks to Smeagol from The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
- “No Man’s Land” from Wonder Woman
- The upside-down kiss from Spider-Man
- Juan teaches Chiron to swim from Moonlight
- “Santa, here? I know him!” from Elf
- Harry Potter and Lord Voldemort duel from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2
- “Remember me?!” from Mad Max: Fury Road
- The chest-waxing scene from The 40-Year-Old Virgin
- The bridesmaids get food poisoning from Bridesmaids
I mean some of those really aren’t that good are they? I don’t really think Bridesmaids or The 40 Year Old Virgin really need to be included in any list of iconic movies and stuff like the scenes in Wonder Woman and even Mad Max aren’t that memorable or iconic despite the profile of their movies. Basically all this tells me is that people who go on Rotten Tomatoes like superhero/fantasy movies and bad comedies. Shout out for The Sixth Sense getting so high up though – kinda thought that was one of those movies that everyone kinda forgot, but clearly it’s stood the test of time.
