Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, is better in slow-motion. When used in the proper context slow-mo can be the game changer in a film.
The movie addicts over at CineFix put together an examination of the ‘Top 10 Slow-mo Moments of All Time‘ and it’s easily the best video I’ve watched so far this week.
The movies, ranked (according to CineFix):
The Matrix (1999)
Directors: The Wachowski Brothers
Director: Pete Travis

The Shining (1980)

Now I’m assuming that you’ve all seen each and every one of these, but if you haven’t you know know what work needs to be done.
