Starman (1984)

In John Carpenter's romantic, tearjerking science fiction film:

  • the scene of alien Starman's (Oscar-nominated Jeff Bridges) creation from Jenny Hayden's (Karen Allen) dead painter-husband Scott's DNA (found in a hair strand in a photo album)
  • the scenes of the naive, robotic Starman's ' ecstatic reaction to Dutch Apple Pie and his resurrection of a deer (and later Jenny)
  • the wet sex scene in a train car with Starman pointing out his star to Jenny and telling her: "I have given you a baby tonight"
  • the eloquent speech by the dying alien to scientist Mark Shermin (Charles Martin Smith) while trapped in federal custody in a restaurant: "We are... interested in your species...You are a strange species, not like any other -- and you would be surprised how many there are. Intelligent but savage. Shall I tell you what I find beautiful about you? You are at your very best when things are worst"
  • Starman's farewell to hostage-turned-lover Jenny in the middle of the Arizona crater where he was met by an alien search party: (Jenny: "I'm never going to see you again, am I?")
  • the final lingering shot of Jenny's face as Starman's ship departed to return home to the sounds of Jack Nitzsche's swelling score
