In this episode of film studies, we'll dissect action movies in search of exciting poses. Just like in previous episodes, the way to get the most out of any given film still is to erase the context.  As soon as you can distill the image down to a single, core, component it becomes far more versatile as reference and idea generation.

Additionally, once you've stripped the context out of a scene it becomes more versatile personal reference for your future illustrations.
