You don't have to be a film nerd to remember great shots in movies. For instance I was watching The Soloist recently with my partner and an amazing shot just so happened to appear, making a scene more interesting. Being a cinephile I noticed it right away, but to my amazement she soon uttered "that was really cool." My jaw dropped.
This being said the history of cinema has been littered with shots that stand the test of time. However, none more memorable then the 50 listed right here.
