Top 10 movies for web designers

Accept it, as designers or simply fans of visual culture, are much more demanding when choosing a film to a view of one afternoon either. It might not have the best screenplay or best performance, but look for films that stimulate us visually, that are unique and Visual works that differ from the rest.

That is precisely the reason for this post, a small top 10 films that personally, I think that notable for its visuals and that many of us might interest us as a good reference that will help us to develop the eye. You can always find these films available on

Tron: Legacy (2010)

Director: Joseph Kosinski
Probably one of the best known, but that however it is surprised by the extraordinary special effects that possesses. Set in a completely futuristic era where technology is linked to life itself. Glitters, streaks of light, and an exceptional soundtrack in this sequel to the 1982 classic. Both of these 2 versions are available and you can watch full movies online free at movie2k.

Moonrise Kingdom (2012)

Director: Wes Anderson
Definitely one of the biggest hits of Wes Anderson, which gives its characteristic style with the handling of ochre, flat colors with symmetries, clean and neat images as taken from a postcard. Suffice to say that the typeface used in the titles and the poster for the film, was developed by no one more blog than the already known in this Jessica Hische

The Pan’s Labyrinth (2006)

Director: Guillermo de el Toro
A story much more dark than it seems, set in the midst of the civil war, Spanish. This masterpiece of del Toro stands out for its costume design and ambience. Intrigue, mystery and very well made visual effects is what we find in Pan’s Labyrinth, a must-see movie for lovers of fantasy and the well numbered accounts. Watch full movie on putlocker.

Mirror Mask (2005)

Director: Dave McKean
Take the surrealism of Dalí, adding a bit of abstraction of Miró, and another little Gothic mystery of HR. Giger and get Mirrormask. A film that is hard to describe, but that you definitely captivates with graphics quite bizarre and unique in its kind. A kind of surreal grunge and macabre thing us hooked until the end.

The Shining (1980)

Director: Stanley Kubrick
The legendary carpet from the Overlook, the scene of the lift, the twins, and the famous “redrum” make The Shining a symbolism-laden horror film icon, mystery and the without equal of Kubrick when it comes to telling a story.

Coraline (2009)

Director: Henry Selick
With the boom of 3D and special effects, it seems that we had forgotten the traditional techniques such as stop motion, Coraline takes up this beautiful technique in an exceptional way. An impeccable character design, and a beautiful scenarios that demonstrate that not only Tim Burton can succeed in one hard-fought so little field such as miniature puppet animation.

Metropolis (1927)

Director: Fritz Lang
The classic of science fiction for excellence and probably one of the greatest films ever made. Despite being silent film, metropolis is one of those films that leaves you breathless with its effects, and more if we take into account that we are talking about a film 1927, where any visual effects, was made by camera and very rudimentary editing tricks.

The fall (2006)

Director: Tarsem Singh
Personally one of my favorite. The imaginary landscapes of Alexandria, will transport you to another world with stunning deserts, and buildings that leave you speechless.The effects for this film computer are practically null (apart from cleaning of images and simple touch-ups) by all that what we see are landscapes that actually exist in around Central magnificent from 20 countries where the movie was filmed. Highly recommended for photographers.

The secret of Kells (2009)

Director: Tomm Moore and Nora Twomey
And could not forget some animation on this list, the fee comes from the hand of The secret of Kells. Personally one of the most beautiful and worked animations I have ever seen. The graphic style is based on the illustrations of the ancient Celtic books.Certainly deserving of the Oscar for best animation which was nominated.

Beyond the Black Rainbow (2010)

Director: Panos Cosmatos
Beyond the Black Rainbow is those movies hard to digest without intermediate point, or you love it or you hate it. As I said before, the films in this list stand out for its visual proposal beyond its content and argument; and this film is the perfect example of that, since I personally think a film dense, heavy, and slowly coated with a so bad that no words describe it, but surprisingly was the best thing I’ve seen lately in terms of Visual. Note an exceedingly influence of Kubrick, and science fiction from the 70’s and 80’s cinema.

Clearly in cinema tastes as music, each has their opinion and is not always achieved to match, but this list is my personal selection of films that I think are visually have a proposal interesting and different to offer.
