Here’s why some movies captivate us from the very first second

Here’s why some movies captivate us from the very first second

Which color do you prefer? Answer without hesitation. Red or blue? Yellow or green? Fuchsia or aqua? We don’t know why, but all of us like some colors more than others, and we make this choice on a deep, subconscious level.

The creators of the Twitter account @CINEMAPALETTES are pretty sure that our color preferences influence our tastes in cinema. Every day they publish a well-known shot of a different movie and the color palette that’s used there. It turns out that the combination of certain colors is enough to make us watch a movie without stopping!

WeGoRo shares with you a selection of such shots. Choose a movie which you watch again and again, and compare the shot’s palette to your color preferences. You’ll be surprised!
