Cool Frames Dude - The CHUD Screenshot Of The Day Club

post #1 of 2852
Thread Starter 
1. Do not talk about Screenshot Of The Day Club

2. Enter at your own risk. If you think screenshots are inherently spoilery it's on you to decide how you use this thread.

3. One frame per Chewer per day. Let's let this thing breathe and have each entry be special instead of flooding the thing. Quality over quantity.

4. Include name of movie at the top of the post so the thread isn't cluttered with peeps having to ask which movie it's from. Because (3a) it works as a kind of spoiler warning, and (3b) if it's not expressly a contest/game then mystery isn't cute. Neither is pretending everyone should already know which movie it comes from without you saying and you're shocked that isn't so.

5. A frame doesn't have to be "pretty" to be compelling. Sunsets are nice, but people are better. Generally I mean. I'm not saying don't post sunsets, just saying do remember movies are about characters. And sometimes the setting is a character? Sometimes.

6. Sorry if #5 doesn't make complete sense. You get my drift though.

To find out if your screenshot (or one close to it) has already been posted in the thread, use the Search This Thread function:

eta: To have your image display larger using the auto-uploader, when you've selected "large" and hit "submit" you should see an http created something like: "". Just manually change the width from 500 to 1000 (the max allowable I think).

Or, using The Art Decade Method, "You can also manually grab a corner of an image & stretch it out to a desirable size."

Alternatively, using a little thing I like to call The Mangy Method, "Right-click on the photo, select Image Properties, and make the pic larger that way."

Nooj also said something about being able to drag images directly from other hosting sites into the upload box, but I can't remember the details.

Barry Lyndon, (1975) - dir. Stanley Kubrick



EDIT: I think that in this case, setting, and most importantly the way it dwarfs the characters, is crucial.

Citizen Kane (1941) dir. Orson Wells - cine. Gregg Toland

The first image to come to mind after checking Bucho's rules. Because of RKO 281, I was familiar with its history long before I ever saw it.

Love that shot, Chief.  My other favorite from Casablanca is Ingrid Bergman's first close-up.  When I first saw it on Blu-Ray, my breath caught in my throat.

Clerks II (2006) Dir. Kevin Smith


I'm not a huge Kevin Smith fan anymore, but I still think this movie gets far too much crap.  I really dug this as the ending shot to the movie.

Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World (2003) dir. Peter Weir. DP Russel Boyd.



My apologies for the quality, but I don't have a bluray drive on my desktop or laptop. My bluray version of this scene is fabulous, as the camera sweeps from a helicopter shot close up of Jack Aubrey and Tom Pullings astride the top of the mast to this pull out. With the sun and the clouds, I could spend the rest of the year putting shots into this thread from this film. And this is only 45 minutes in.


(Watching this film on the ZT60 would be an afternoon to remember)

The carbon freezing chamber was the best set in the entire saga.  It was visually interesting from all angles and was beautifully lit.
