As we all love movies, I thought about starting a little quiz in here.

I'll start with posting a still from a movie's first shot.

The next one who guesses from which movie it was taken, can throw in another still frame of a different feature.

And so it goes on and on.

 

I hope this isn't getting too challenging:

Looks like Terminator 2, possibly?

Alright...this might be too easy, but it has been on my mind as I just saw it for the first time.  Guessing someone will get it right away, but bonus points if you can name the cinematographer off the top of your head!  Such a great film...

Won the Golden Lion at the 1962 Venice Film Festival.

 

But I cheated using a reverse image search: https://www.tineye.com/

Image search will not help you.

No. That's colour and 'Scope.

You're not a million miles away, though.

Luv this thread...

 

This is one of my favorite openings, because it sums up the character so well...

Yessir.  Sidney Lumet is one of my favorite director's too.

Something of a giveaway with his profile in it.

I know, but it's one of my favorites because it's so full of visual exposition.

Oh dear. I'm afraid mine will be terribly obvious. Skipping the title sequence, then:
