  • B&W movies can be just as good as color movies as long as they're made well. My favorite is The Third Man, which is also my favorite movie regardless of color/B&W. The story and visuals are really good.

    I think my favorite color movie, strictly for the visuals, is Pitch Black. It's also helped by being very character-driven rather than strictly action.

    Ridley Scott movies usually have interesting visuals. The Duellists was really good that way. Light and shadow are usually prominent features in film noir, and there's a lot of those. Color versions of noir movies aren't as common but a pretty good one is Brick, although it's good more for the writing than the visuals.

  • The original, "The Day The Earth Stood Still" is my favorite.

    Another one I watch about once a year from 1954 is called, "Creature from the Black Lagoon". This one is a good example of what film studios did before computes to make movies fun to watch.

    • I love Creature from the Black Lagoon <3

    • Creature doesn't get enough credit. It's actually pretty good.

      The Bride of Frankenstein is often treated like a joke but a lot of the visuals are very good and it's definitely worth a watch.

  • I have seen a few but I wouldn't say I like them.

  • Ironically, I don't really like black and white films much (old technology and / or low budgets), but I do like the black and white visual style a lot. I'm into retro stuff.
