It's been a while, but the way I remember
this slow-mo scene of X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) is pretty cool. O_O

Quicksilver strikes again in X-Men: Apocalypse, as we know, but it is not as iconic. The Deadpool movies have a few slow motion scenes.

Jeorj Euler, "not as iconic"? I hear people singing "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of These)" whenever anything remotely similar happens to this day! Not to insult Jim Croce (who is awesome on any level) and the initial scene, but Apocalypse took things up to eleven and while not everything in this movie worked, that struck the chord in my humble opinion. :)

A long time ago I also used to search for any great slow-motion moments in any action movies... until had watched Melancholia (2011) - a masterpiece having a slow-motion masterpiece included that can be watched separately as a short film.

Two more where slow motion is not a masterpiece, but the slowness is meaningful:
Faa yeung nin wa (2000)
The Patriot (2000)

And there a lot of slow-motions in the "Mission: Impossible" movies, but this one is simply beautiful and somehow iconic.

More "sports":
Along Came Polly (2004) - the movie is not so high rated, but the basketball moment is just outstanding:

One of, if not the most painful moment among slow-motions. It is hard to imagine another (not slow motion) way to picture the situation, but Clint and Hilary, and stunts worked all the possible and feasible out in Million Dollar Baby (2004).
