    I'd like some beautiful-looking or aesthetic movies to watch - old or new, it doesn't matter. Good camera motions, mise en scene, design, etc. Hit me!

    Grand Budapest Hotel I thought was very well shot. If you’re into martial arts, Hero was well shot.

    I wasn’t a big fan of the movie, but Watchmen I thought looked great.

    I can probably run off a bunch of westerns as it’s one of my favorite genres, but I thought the wide angle shots in the modern take of Magnificent Seven were excellent.

    Moulin Rouge and the Great Gatsby I enjoyed the cinematography.

    Wow Ran! Off the charts ratings: Ran (1985) How come we haven't heard more about it? How did you hook up with the film?

    I’ve never seen Out of Africa but yes, Lawrence of Arabia is a good choice.

    I enjoy movies filmed outdoors.

    A couple of Marilyn Monroe movies...

    Niagara...the star of the movie is the falls, if you`ve never been there, a little taste of what it`s like

    River of No Return...filmed in Alberta

    Mutiny on the Bounty...The Brando version, the ship was actually built in Nova Scotia for the movie; filmed in the south seas.

    Captains of the Clouds...Cagney movie, early color, a bunch of it filmed near North Bay. There is a scene of Parliament Hill early in WWII; also a real pilot graduation parade officiated by the famous Billy Bishop (and he`s very good).

    Lot of people did not like it but i personally loved it. It's a long and slow movie but it's very well shot and acted. I watched it the same night as The Lost City of Z and i enjoyed both movie a lot.

    This is a very strong list. I don't think I'd be able to displace a single movie in it, only add to it.

    The second to last film in it might be the very best cinematographic experience ever, at least according to many. Not me, however, but I do appreciate its significance.

    It's his acting range.

    He is seemingly willing to set his own borders given the role but then rattles the cage given the writing constraints. He is one of the most difficult actors to read as far as I am concerned.

    "Lost in Translation" is a movie where he dominates. It is, unquestionably, one of the best films of the last 25 years.

    O.T. Listen to this man from the future. Then look at the kid's face at the end.

    Calling my fellow comic geeks! It’s out...



    But before the Avengers, we’re going to get Captain Marvel:

    Pan's Labyrinth is one of my favorite movies, the actor who played that fascist officer who does marry the girl's mother does one hell of an acting job. One of the best performances of evil I have ever seen.

    I'm guilty of loving the Avengers movies and this one looks lit.

    Never have any eyes shone bluer than the eyes of Peter O'Toole in Lawrence of Arabia.

    Been watching Season 1 of Gomorrah and have almost completed it. It's riveting.

    I know it's been recommended here before but it hasn't gotten the attention it deserves.

    I was on board with the book that gave rise to a movie and to this series -- the book happened to be immensely popular in Europe while I was traveling there and so it's been on my radar for years. I thought the whole thing would just end with the movie. It's quite the welcome gift to have more of it as a series, that is great all its own.
