Note to poll board:

I will not able to update this list for the next few weeks. (At least until the first week of September)
But drop your comments anyway, I'll update the list when I can. :(


I have this idea to add how colors are used in each movie and about a shorter , more creative title also.


Goodbye.  :(

If I could/knew how to, I'd upload better images for Vertigo (1958). Here's a start to get an idea:

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0052357/mediaviewer/rm3335325184
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0052357/mediaviewer/rm3881678592
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0052357/mediaviewer/rm1476985344

I'm not sure which image best showcases In the Mood for Love (2002), maybe one of these?

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0118694/mediaviewer/rm4026423808
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0118694/mediaviewer/rm1627281920
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0118694/mediaviewer/rm890381568
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0118694/mediaviewer/rm2160220672

In Hero (2002), there are several segments, each dedicated to a different color:

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0299977/mediaindex?ref_=tt_mv_sm


Is the poll about use of color throughout the film, or about a specific color in a specific context? If the latter, this one from Schindler's List (1993) could fit:

See ya! Happy smiley 184

Thanks alb. I haven't seen Hero. If you could tell how colors are used in that one I'll add that too.  But I'll definitely add other 2. :D

Yes.This one's about use of colors throughout the whole movie or a specific scene.

Thorin, do you only put suggestions in lists if you've seen the movie? Just wondering because there are several great suggestions above that you didn't add. Also, I suggest you look at the images you picked, many of them don't do a very good job of showing off their colors.

FYC:
Three Kings - this is the disclaimer that appears at the beginning: 
The makers of Three Kings used visual distortion and unusual colors in some scenes of this film. They intentionally used these unconventional techniques to enhanced the emotional intensity of the story line.

What IMDb says: The vibrant color is due to the fact that they used "Ektachrome" slide transparency film, instead of standard film stock, and the "bleach bypass" process actually gave the prints a much deeper black. The silver halide is completely opaque, thus a "true" black. Leaving all of that silver on the prints, resulted in a much higher cost for distribution however.

If you check out the list now, I think you can see the reason why I'm usnig those images.

And I'll add Three Kings. :D

BTW I'm keeping Tron for another poll.
