Just a strong focus in other words, where the background of an image is very heavily blurred and only the subject is in focus.
Are you just making up terms?

LOL! It's called a "shallow depth of field".

No, I'm not making up terms. It's called English. Do you not know what the words "harsh" and "focus" mean? It's basic English. I wasn't claiming to be using the preferred terminology.

No, I didn't make anything up. I didn't use the preferred terminology, but I didn't authoritatively define what I described as a "harsh focus". I used basic English to describe it. If that counts as "making terms up" then I guess you just made up several terms for your sentence.

I loved that sometimes the planes seem to leap out of the screen in certain shots. Especially when one of the Messerschmitts gets taken down and starts to make a dive, you can almost touch it lol better 3D than 3D will ever be.

Why was this film not shot entirely in 70mm IMAX?

1- Camera's too loud for intimate dialogue scenes and Nolan hates ADR.
2- Too big to be used on the Moonstone (although they did shoot a little bit of IMAX on the Moonstone).

There's a lot of that in these parts.
