Re: Cinematography/Visual Influences Thread
Off the top of my head: Logan's movements against the rain was a direct homage to Kurosawa movies. The chase scene had elements inspired by The French Connection. The wide tracking shots from the ninja/snow fight were influenced by Azumi.
Aside from that the bombing of Nagasaki was the most visceral atomic bomb explosion scene I've seen in a movie ever. Trumps my previous favorite Terminator 2.
Joss Whedon's MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING is the cinematic equivalent of Tony Stark building an Iron Man suit in a cave with a bunch of scraps
