What are the most intense scenes that you can remember seeing in movies? I was just talking to someone about this, trying to remember movies with a lot of tension, the kind where you grip the armrests and clench your teeth and wait for relief. The birth scene in Prometheus and the "ship's mast" scene in Grindhouse come to mind for me, and of course the Omaha Beach scene in Saving Private Ryan is a masterpiece. What else comes to mind for you?

The birth scene in "Alien" and the head spinning scene in "The Exorcist".

First thing that came to mind is the: following Sam the dog into a building scene from I Am Legend. The YouTube clip doesn't do it justice, but I will never forget seeing that in the theater. Heart practically beating out of my chest moment. My wife (then girlfriend) was upset at me for a while for talking her to see that film.

Argo had several incredibly tense scenes, regardless if they were over-dramatized or not (Airport escape for instance).

I just watched Goodfellas again for likely the 10th time and the Joe Pesci "Whadda you mean I'm funny?" scene still makes me incredibly uncomfortable.
