There are much more than five...
I can say more than five every single movie what I love.

PG&BtK (I love it very much, so there are a lot of great shots):
- Billy shoots Bob, and when he's dead, shoots again...  Grin That SOB worth it.
- Ok, the death of Slim Pickens is very good. But everyone says it's the best scene of the film...
- Pat shooting in the mirror. Terrific symbol...
- Montage at the beginning - high school of cutting!
- Pat sitting on Lemuel's saloon and drinking.
- Billy and Alamosa's duel. Poor Alamosa...  Cry (I think always at the beginning of OUTITW when I see it... Grin)
- The scene with Pat and his wife - I don't like very much the 2005 version, but this scene is very good.


FAFDM
- The first shot when we see Indio...
- Mortimer's face behind the bible... and the little old man's face when he sees it's LVC...  Grin
- Mortimer humilitating poor Wild. (Well, the only one thing what I don't love in Mortimer. This was wrong. Wild doesn't make anything, and it's very unkind to make a game of a cripple. Okay, Frank does it to, but he's bad. Mortimer is a good guy...) But the scene rocks.  Afro
- Indio smoking...
- and playing with the watch...
- Indio, making anything  Grin Grin Grin
- Hat shooting.
- Mortimer shooting Manco, pure friendship...  Grin
- Mortimer vs. Wild, second time.
- Agua Caliente and the apple tree...
- Indio, the bug, the watch and the flashback...
- Final duel - rocks. The MUSIC! And the faces...
- Mortimer riding to the sunset...

 Tongue Embarrassed Help my memory, please, I can't remember who it was... I got quite confused with all the characters when I saw the film.

- Mortimer's face behind the bible... and the little old man's face when he sees it's LVC...  Grin

I love that one, too. But, hey, there are lots of shots I love in these films, that's why I'm on this board...

Okay, I love the shot when Cheyenne throws the light and we see suddenly Harmonica's face. That music effect!

... like this one, but I especially love the light effect in here. The way the shadows are moving with the lamp.

I think it would be cool to find stills for some of these scenes.  It's not the easiest thing to do, I've tried, but maybe you'll have better luck.  Afro

I can make them, from films I have (that means almost all Leone's). But another day...

... though, wait, I might have some made already...

I'll go through the listed things and let's see.

Marmota: Slim Pickens is the old sheriff Baker. Little man with a moustache. He was shot by L. Q. Jones in the river scene. (When Pat shoots L. Q. Jones and talks with him.)

Warning. They're .bmp, which means the files are huge. When I'm making stills, I always have to put them into a graphic editor and I always use Microsoft Paint (or what's it's name), because that one is closest at hand...
It has a light side, they're just as I took them from the DVD, no compression as far as I know, just resized for the forum.

(But I think I'll have to turn them all into jpeg's eventually, because our harddisc is gradually becoming full...)


Some from the begining of OUATITW, Harmonica arrives:









Jill in the station and town. (Without the superb over-roof view, I'll add it later...)







I LOVE the music in this one!

Um. I see I forgot to remove the black bars in some...

More to come later.

Wow, I thought so, it isn't so bad with me! Grin Thanks.

I don't blame you.. I wish I could do the same  Cry

Then again, maybe i'd spend all say doing them... so maybe it's best I stay ignorant with that.  Grin

1. OUATiA - The iconic shot where Dominic dies.
2. The Godfather - Micheal becoming The Godfather at the end of the film.
3. Tom Yum Goong - The plot may be stupid, but the tracking shot of the man going up the circular restaurant is perfect.
4. Ran - The old man walking away from the burning building.
5. The Good The Bad and The Ugly - Tuco looking at the gold, camera goes up revealing a noose.

I'm not going to rank these from best to worst, although most famous is The Godfather. Tom Yum Goong (The Protector) has the most entertaining shot of my five.

(I'm not making an official list of top 5 ever, I'll just list some great shots [in non-Leone films], as they come to mind):

The Godfather Part II: the spectacular tracking shot of Young Vito walking through the mass of immigrants on the ship


The Perfect Storm: the famous shot of the ship trying to climb the wave http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8lYTIYvKTNg

No particular order, they're hust 5 amazing non Leone shots that come to my mind. They're all extended shots, but that's just a coincidence.

- Children Of Men: the incredible extended shot in the car http://www.joblo.com/video/player.php?video=childrenofmen
- Snake Eyes: the 15minutes tracking shot at the begining
- Reservoir Dogs: Mr Blond leaving the tortured cop to go to his car, ging out of the building, music fades out, sounds of a peaceful afternoon, he opens the car, takes the oil, goes back inside, music fades in, he begins to dance.
- Tintin: the motorcycle scene, which is, again, a single extended shot
- Rapaces: the opening extended shot, which is far superior to anything done before (and after) https://vimeo.com/21536593
