Lately, I've been enjoying more and more the beauty of the visuals of certain scenes of movies whereas usually I mainly just concentrate on story. But a movie is more than that, and I seem to have been ignoring the visual element. Cinema is an art form of many faces. What are some of your favorite scenes from movies based solely on the visuals? Preferably with pictures.

This whole scene from Pirates of the Caribbean, i think it's the third. The black pearl washes up at this place too.



also while i'm on pirates


and then pretty much moonrise kingdom in its entirety





instantly became my favorite movie.

Tree of Life: Now, this movie was so weird and awful that I couldn't finish it, but some of those scenes were just gorgeous











your turn.

The part in "Up" when the balloon reflections fill that kid's entire room. Like, seriously, Pixar, we get it. You have a shit ton of money.


edit: the scene with this kid's room:

The Fountain had amazing some pretty mind-blowing stuff that completely fell under the radar.


Most likely because it was a shit movie.

I enjoy moments in The Matrix films. Not seen em in a few years though.

So was Matrix Revolutions, and I still think The Fountain had more interesting visuals.

EDIT: ^ Whoa, totally didn't see that post before writing this.

Agreed on both counts, but I'd rather watch the Matrix Revolutions because at least that had some cool action scenes to break up the pretentiousness.

Sadly that's how it is. Seeing pictures from the movie, I was thoroughly disappointed. I expected so much more from that, and it really made no sense.


Now for a great movie with great visuals.

All of Persona, but especially the opening scene (I'll get banned if I post any of it probably) and this one


Repulsion


Enter the Void


Antichrist



The Seventh Seal


The Good, The Bad and the Ugly


Synecdoche, New York (this scene and others are ten times more beautiful if you've actually seen the movie and get what's going on)


2001


Barry Lyndon



I could go on for hour but I shant.

"Trollhunter" has a lot of nice shots of the Norwegian landscape. "Red Dawn" has some nice ones too. Towards the end (I think) Jed and his brother are sitting in a field at sunset talking, that's probably the best one. The remake looks horrible.

My brother has that on blu ray, I'll watch it tomorrow.

Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind is an excellent one.

EDIT: Anything done by Michel Gondry.

I don't care what you thought of Prometheus, (I loved it, still one of my favorite films of the year) the visuals were pretty constantly mindblowing.





Also Sunshine, but unfortunately I can't find any images to do it justice.

The Life Of Pi looks like it'll be pretty.

I'm gonna have to agree on the Prometheus one.

Prometheus in theaters blew my mind. And it (in my opinion) was a pretty good movie as well.

Definitely, I've been looking forward to it for this reason. No clue what it's about and don't care to know.

This thread is making me want to rewatch some of those movies.

Pretty much any Terrance Malick film will have brilliant cinematography. Martha Marcy May Marlene has some of my favorite cinematography. I love that low contrast, atmospheric film. Melancholia was also very well executed, especially the effects. The ending was stunning, frankly. Of course, Stalker deserves a mention, as it's brilliant. Also the low-key scenes in Apocalypse Now. Bleu, from Three Colors, also had some great camera work. Youth without Youth, Solaris...I'll just stop, because I could go on forever about this.

Oh god, the opening credits to Castle in the Sky was great. Especially seeing how that was pretty much hand-drawn.

100% on Prometheus. Stunning visuals. Someone told me that none of the locations were green screened (things like the spaceship were), though I doubt it.

Also, No Country for Old Men:





AND some parts of Quantum of Solace:

I'm going to throw in a vote for ALL of Kubrick's movies, plus Drive. There are many others, but they're the most immediately obvious for me.

I agree completely with NCFOM. Also I'll add Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy



If you look closely on the second one, you can see the patch thing for the hair make up.
