Have Your Say: What's Your Favorite Slow-Motion Moment?
Almost from the dawn of filmmaking in the 19th century onward, people have been overcranking and undercranking their cameras to create interesting effects, to scientifically prove a point, or just for fun. Overcranking a camera means you take more pictures a second than the projector is going to need, and playing the film at normal speed will give you the slow-motion effect, where everything moves, well... slower.

Of course you don't need to actually overcrank anything anymore to get a nice slo-mo effect these days: ever since The Matrix, we can do even more extreme things and freeze time completely, by using multiple cameras and/or computers.

As everything tends to look more epic or threatening when seen in slo-mo, it is an often-used trick in the filmmaking toolbox, especially in action scenes. And what would Deadpool be without slo-mo? He wouldn't even have time enough to crack jokes without it!

Which brings us to the question of the week: what is your favorite use of slow-motion ever? Was it an action sequence, an explosion, a sports event, an epic blooper, or a great gag?
