Am I the only one that finds Scarlett Johansson's arse in that picture wonderfully distracting? I feel like I'm being a bad geek for focusing on it. Like, Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, the HULK are all in one picture, and I'm looking at a girl's arse. I feel there is still hope for me, yet.



You're not the only one! I also found my eyes almost magnetically drawn towards Scarlett Johansson's pert derriere!


I was only listening to the words in that scene, my eyes never left her body. Surely Whedon, SJ and the gang knew exactly what they were doing in that scene, i cant imagine that being "accidental". The shot was so long! (not that im complaining)

Second only to Lost In Translation in terms of Scarlett arseage

How can you not love a medium where a single beautifully-performed line or scene can move you to tears of sadness or happiness?  Where you watch with baited breath to see what will happen next?  Where you want to punch the air and shout "Yes!" at the top of your voice?  Where a camera trick or some special effect takes your breath away?

I've so many reasons to love cinema, but perhaps rather than repeat those that have gone before, here are some of mine (MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!)


The Straight Story - the beautiful simplicity of the reconciliation at the end.  No big dramatics, just the simple look of contrition and absolute forgiveness from each of the brothers before they take to the bench to stare at the night sky.  I still think this is the most perfect ending ever filmed.

Up - the fact that an animated movie can encapsulate profound love and anguish in 10 minutes; something that Twilight hasn't managed to do in 4 films!

The Elephant Man - the noisy, dirty harshness of Victorian London brought to life.  The absolute humanity of the "monster", and the monstrosity of some humans.  Treves' moral dilemma as his subject becomes his friend (and no, it's no coincidence that there are 2 Lynch movies here!).

It's A Wonderful Life - "I want to live!"

Seven Samurai - the shot of Kyuzo practicing his swordplay amongst the flowers in the meadow.

Shawshank Redemption - Andy's raw elation as he is bathed in the rain and lit by lightning after crawling through raw sewage to freedom.  And Red's final lines, natch!

And that's barely scratching the surface

The Millennium Falcon getting chased in to the asteroid field in Empire. My mind is blown every single time.

The last hour of Magnolia.

Drive in it's entirety. Something that isn't talked about much is how beautiful the film looks from start to finish.

T-Rex first appearance in Jurassic Park.

Henry and Karen being followed in to the restaurant by the camera in Goodfellas.


I'll think of more later :).

Shouldn't this thread be re-titled 'My most favourite still or gif from a movie?'

Well, no, because the gif is just a neat way to demonstrate or represent that which the individual loves about that particular film that gives them their love of cinema. It's a more Internet-friendly way than I started out with, which was a textual representation or demonstration of the same. The gif or picture is a just a shorter, more colourful way to do the same thing.

I'll no doubt think of many more later....






Just a great film

The whole of Gladiator - I don't care about any flaws it might have, I just love it. Particularly the score
Pans Labyrinth - The Pale Man
LOTR
The end of Atonement - simply because it makes me cry every single time I watch it

Plus, going to the cinema in general always makes me completely forget about any shit that I've got going on as I'm completely taken away by what's happening on screen. At least I am when it's a good film anyway . Who can fail to love that?
