I realise this could be borderline JCC, but I think we can keep it Amphiworthy. What do you think makes a good shot? Is it one that makes you think "How did they do that", or should it not be noticable. Which shots in films have stood out for you, and why? Do you find that certain directors favour certain types of shot? I started this because I'm watching Batman Returns, and the thing that stands out for me in this movie is the establishing shot for "Arctic World". It's a 20-second flythrough of the whole zoo before resting on the final destination - it just screams "Tim Burton" at me See the Director's thread.
