In the final episode of ‘Breaking Bad’ there are two shots in a pivotal scene that are perfect examples of how to use camera movement to amplify the narrative and surprise the audience. With one simple pan and one simple dolly there is a set-up and shortly after, a dramatic pay-off. The scene at first appears to be just conveying information to the viewer.

"Hey, stop crying. I’ll take care of you, Stevie. Always."

Even when I had nothing, I had Bucky. I don’t think I could’ve done it without him.


Watching Hannibal is like watching everyone in the show drive their own car that’s going 10 mph, so they have plenty of time to avoid collision and turn away, but instead they all end up running into each other and it’s a huge pile up and no one knows who to blame for this huge car crash and Hannibal is sitting on the sidewalk in a lawn chair drinking red wine and smirking to himself.

me after watching the winter soldier: I'M GOING TO SHIP EVERYTHING AND YOU CAN'T STOP ME
