So, basically, when i was about 12 or so (i don't even remember anymore how old i was to be honest) i watched the Return of the King for the first time, and i have to say, the scene when Rohirrim the gather up in front of the Mordor horde particularly stroke me as the best i've ever seen (to date) in the movie industry. During the whole scene, from the start of the speech to the end of the march, i had, as i imagine a lot of people did as well, waves of shivers going over my body. But that's not the weird part. During the "death" part of the speech and the start of the march (particularly when then blow the horns) i could literally feel some sort of feeling in my chest. It really unsettled me and i honestly though i was having a heart attack (i was very young and had very little idea of what a real heart attack could, should or would feel like). I should say though that it was the strongest physical feeling i have ever felt. It was stronger than...oh well, the strongest orgasm i had (sorry, but it's the only thing i could compare it to) and rather enjoyable too.
Since then, i've had this happen to me a lot of times, but never quite so strong. The only time it might've compared to it was in the movie the Dark Knight Rises, during the scene when Batman first appears. I was in an IMAX cinema, the really strong volume, the Dark Knight music theme that went off then and the fact the only thing i could see was the screen really made me feel like i was there, and i had that feeling again.
People say rage is the strongest short-term emotion a person can feel. But it doesn't compare, one bit, to what i have felt alongside the emotion of epicness. The moments when you're so angry you actually try to grind your teeth together to eliminate the pressure and suppress the anger, when you feel like you could wreck your whole room, don't compare to this. I feel like i'd be saying the same thing even without the weird physical feelings i get during epic moments. Anyway, i made this thread because i'm wondering if there is anyone out here who's felt the same thing as me during epic moments, particularly the feeling i get in my chest.
