Top 50 Movie Special Effects Shots, with video clips. Pretty great. [via]

This list is great, but frustrating. The King Kong shot everyone remembers even if they haven't seen the film is the first approach POV of a plane attacking Kong on the top of the Empire State Building. Similarly, the Star Wars shot that they dismissthe opening shot of the Star Destroyer chasing the rebel cruiseris the one that made everyone realize that it was a different film from all of the other sci-fi dreck of the 1970s. Odd to see Silent Running not mentioned at all. Not to mention no mention of Babe which is arguably the best talking animal movie on many different levels. Ahhh. Look at me talk! Nerd guy I am.
