Se7en:
- When Somerset walks through the library, surrounded by that great classical music. This whole scene is just amazing!

Boogie Nights:
- The Pool Party at Jack's house. "Spill the Wine!!!!"
- At Rahad Jacksons house.
- The beginning shot.

Magnolia:
- Donnie's entrance into the bar with that great music.

Fight Club:
- The sex-scene with Marla and Tyler.

The Game
- When Van Orton comes into his house and everything's put in blue neon-light and that music starts. Great!

By the way: How do you guys put all your favourite shots into your post? I mean, where do you get that shots from?

upload them to a site

you can use a free one like geocities

they don't allow remote linking

The trick is, once you've uploaded it, change the filename to whatever you want .txt

then you come to post it here, click the Img button, enter the address where it's at

Sunset Boulevard
Though done with a mirror, it's great shot from the bottom of the swimming pool looking up at William Holden's body:


Terminator 2: Judgment Day
Always loved how the barrel of the gun was in perfect focus with the actors:


Life Lessons from New York Stories
Doesn't seem to translate well with just a frame, but this entire sequence of one, then two, then a third Nick Nolte appearing to work on different parts of the painting is a wonderful concept in framing and set-up:



Thanks for the help.

There's also another great shot:
The very last shot of "Fight Club" just before the credits begin.
You see Jack and Marla standing hand-in-hand in front of the buildings, which are crashing down.
Could somebody please post that screenshot? It's really amazing.

If I remember correctly, there is a single frame of a penis before the credits on fight club, just like pitt appears on single frames before they meet in the beggining.

meanwhile, here's some Europa:
