What makes a movie memorable?

What stands out to you about a movie that will most likely make it a memorable experience? Is it the score, characters, dialog, camera shots, etc? What are some of your favorite movies and why do they stand out? Example: "The Shawshank Redemption" is regarded as one of the greatest movies of all time, but why do you personal think it is (or isn’t)?

  • It's very hard to pin point just one movie to be considered the greatest of all time. In movies, the characters relationships both on and off screen make a huge impact in what stands out the most. As an audience, you can pick up on certain characters relationships which also set the tone and flow for a movie. Also character development, which is a huge part that writers and producers should work on. There are many movies where characters are introduced and then you're left asking, "and then what?" What happens to this character? How are they relevant and how do they progress further on into the film? – tahneemaxwell 3 years ago
