If he doesn't get a nomination for his movie, they might as well never give him a nomination. Stunning work from Hoyte in this film.

Jesus. There were some shots in this film, that made my jaw drop.

If he gets a nomination i'd be happy.

Yes, yes, exactly. I rewatched a bootleg of a prologue to remember, and I've seen this shot at the end.

See, I remembered it incorrectly. It was Moonstone passing through it, not soldiers watching from the beach. But it was showed from the lower point, from the Moonstone. It was like this destroyer was Bane from TDKR, if this analogy is to the place.

Were they really not in the film?

The first shot wasn't and in the film the entire thing is at a different angle if I remember correctly

Yeah, it was the other way around; the Moonstone was going right instead of left.

So the shot was flipped? But the "D36" doesn't seem flipped.

Hmm...I wonder what is going on here. :lol:

I know it's already been said, but that ending with Tom Hardy was fucking gorgeous and one of the best shots Nolan has ever done.

This whole film is like a gigantic, beautiful IMAX sized painting. But as of now, my FAVORITE shot is
the opening with the soldiers walking and the fliers falling down around them

Those two are great. I'll think long and hard about my favorite shot, but let me throw out the one where...
... you almost get to see that one boat tip over sideways in its entirety, uncut.
