Hi Joe,

The poll really looks great. I like how you included people's comments, too, which I was not expecting. May I suggest just one small edit to one sentence in the intro? (in bold below)

Do any of these movies awaken your passion for cinema?

(Thanks and, again, bravo for a well done poll.)

I voted for Taxi Driver, but that would be my second choice. I attribute my love of cinema to Bonnie and Clyde which I saw during it's original release when I was nine years old.

Well, I'm a movie fanatic and Cinematography, especially movies with extreme style, got me into cinema. 70% of my body is made of movies. It'd be a pain for me to mention one and not the other.

But since cinematography is what got me into making films, I'd say Birdman (2014). Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) made me realize that I should start making films. Thanks to Alejandro G. Iñárritu (the director) and Emmanuel Lubezki (the cinematographer).

I want to mention these movies since they also helped me understand the art of motion capture.

Alejandro González Iñárritu Movies: The Illusion Creator
Birdman and The Revenant.
(The reason I called him an illusion creator because he creates movies with long/no-cut scenes, which they're not. It looks like they were shot in a single cut to the viewers but it's not. I don't know if other people feel this, but to me, single-shot scenes are the best, it makes the movie intense. Special thanks to Chico for capturing them in Birdman and The Revenant.)

Zack Snyder Movies: Modern Movies with Supreme Style
300, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Watchmen.

Stanley Kubrick Movies: The Masterpiece Creator
The Shining, A Clockwork Orange, and Full Metal Jacket.

Quentin Tarantino Movies: The All in One but for Everyone
Django Unchained, Kill Bill, and The Hateful Eight

And, one more director, he's not a film director, but he's the best in his field. Hideo Kojima. That's right; he's the best video game director ever. The latest God of War also surprised me by their single-shot direction. Hats off to Cory Barlog.

But yeah, it was Birdman that made me realize the power and art of films.

Hey Joe,



I don't think the readers/voters would understand this since it starts with a "but" and I hardly believe they gonna come here to read the whole comment I posted above, therefore, I suggest you to edit it to this;
Birdman made me realize the power and art of films. It has the best cinematography, a very realistic-performance cast and a beautiful but painful story which a lot of don't understand. Not to mention, films that majority of people don't understand or hate becomes a masterpiece for someone. It was this film that got me into making films. Thanks to Alejandro G. Iñárritu (the director) and Emmanuel Lubezki (the cinematographer). - BONAFIDE BOSS' pick.
I hope this helps.

Joe, 

As Ruby suggested, please correct: Do any of these movies awaken your passion for cinema?

Here is my comment:
I was 10 years old when I watched this film for the first time, and it made a deep impression on me. I was enchanted by the beautifully told story and the wondrous world of Tolkien. I just loved everything about this movie and still do.

This is a tough one cause I've always loved cinema. I believe the first time I really enjoyed a movie as a child was seeing Monsters, Inc, at the cinema and subsequent times on VHS. Although in terms of a movie that made me appreciate the art of the form of cinema and not simply having a well written story was Stanley Kubrick's The Shining
