What movie had the directing that really gave you the chills. This doesn't mean it's good, it means it just looked great. The shots were perfect, the timing was right, and they didn't over or under exaggerate the special effects.

I can't think of a movie right now, but I'm commenting here so I go back and see what others say here.

Avatar, Matrix and Transformers, I guess.

Matrix was pretty awesome visually.

The Final Fantasy movie they did was also amazing IMO when it came out.

Man of Steel was visually stunning from start to finish in my opinion - but then Zack Snyder is like that - 300, Watchmen and Sucker Punch are ALL visually amazing.

I found Avatar good - but thought it was bit overrated personally.

This soo much. Who cares if the story was sorta flat, Final Fantasy was gorgeous. You know a movie is visually stunning when you can watch it over and over again just for the picture.

Pacific Rim comes to mind.

On a more subtle note, Tinker Tailor.

@gor724: Aronofsky's The Fountain.

Hands down one of the most beautiful looking films of all time.

The visual FX are also almost entirely organically created, filming chemical reactions in Petri dishes to use to create outer space scenes. It's innovative, original and breathtaking. There's no other movie like it.

@judasnixon: I second Amelie. Great little film.

But visually I still put The Fountain first.

Ugh, Amelie was too quirky for me to get in to.

^ I agree.

I had to do a foreign film deconstruction as an assignment. The film was just silly.

SCHINDLER'S LIST by far for me. It was so good and it was so perfect. The black and white was great, great shots, no special effects needed and it sent chills all through me.

Man of Steel.

Pacific rim was a okay.

But let's be honest Transformers may not be a great movie, but we all pooped are pants in 2007 for it.

@monsterstomp: You should have done Bicycle Thieves. Now THAT'S a foreign film, and literally the opposite of Amelie.

Eh, I find introverts really get that movie more than extroverts. Especially intuitive feelers. Not saying you're one or the other, but the movie is really made to appeal to those who live in their own fantasy world, like Amelie herself. I have a very rich inner life and am very introspective so that movie really resonated with me. But I can see why some people might not care for it I guess.

The last movie that I remember seeing which was visually impressive was Step Up Revolution. Some of the sci fi and action movies could get a nod, but none of them really stand out any more as they are all so CGI dependent.
