    +1 for Brando in Waterfront.
     
  14. Liam Neeson in Schindler’s List in this scene:

    It’s such a powerful scene where he’s completely transformed from a war profiteer to a total humanitarian. Where he sees what’s truly valuable vs what isn’t and how now he would be willing to give the shirt off his back to save another life. The saddest part is you feel that he will be forever haunted by the possibility that he could have saved more lives had he not been so concerned with material things and monetary gain.

  16. Ji Changwook and Ha Jiwon in Empress ki



    Favorite Korean/Asian drama ever. Ji changwooks character went from a innocent, awkward teen to a powerful Chinese emperor who went insane from the stress of his position and authority. Ha Ji Won was a poor peasant and a bandit, who turned into a virtuous woman, and eventually, the empress of China.

    i didnt like that one, it was too playboyish, even though they tried to hollywoodify by adding a girl who was just like him, to pull him out of his old ways. L.x
