Andrew over at A Fistful of Thoughts has started a blogathon that revolves around, well, your favorite cinematic moments. The rules follow as such:
1) Pick a number between 1 and 100 (any more than 100 is just gaudy)But what qualifies for a cinematic moment? Well, Andrew explains it as this:
2) Choose that many cinematic moments that are either your all time favorites or ones that could, on any given day, be your all time favorites
3) Post them on your blog (or Tumblr or whatever) with the above header (or one you create for yourself)
4) Send me the link by either posting it here in the comments or getting ahold of me on Twitter (@fististhoughts)
We all have them in the back of our minds; those moments that make us think "man, this is what the movies are all about". We relive those moments in our mind's eye, remembering them and dissecting them and adoring them. They come in all shapes and sizes, from all types of films, and yet they all share one very important aspect; they define why we love the movies. It could be the way that the moment is cut; the way it's edited together. It could be the way the moment uses its actors to evoke a powerful emotion from us. It could be the way that music floods the scene and draws us even closer to the moment in question. It could be a grand climax, a breathtaking introduction or a simple interchange. It could be any and all things, because for every film lover, the list is different.Having seen a wide array of films over the last several years, it wasn't easy to select just a few (or, in this case, ten) moments. But thankfully I persevered. My choices start after the jump.
