Color can do to cinema what choco-chips do to icecream – turn something good into something outstanding. A Director can use color to change focus, make something stand out or just enhance the aesthetic beauty of the film. In this list, we’re admiring the latter. Since it is the most colorful time of the year, we at The Cinemaholic are getting into the spirit of colors by listing down the most beautifully colored movies ever. You can watch some of these beautiful movies on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime.
10. Avatar (2009)
This James Cameron CGI Fest primarily takes place in an alien planet called Pandora. And space fiction arms the director with a liberty to fully use his imagination and delve into surreal imagery. Cameron unleashes his vision at every juncture to create a mesmerising new world of his.

9. Moulin Rouge (2001)
Star-crossed lovers in the Bohemian setting of the Montmartre Quarter of Paris, during La Belle Epoque (“The Golden Era”) of France. A romance can rarely have a more intriguing mise-en-scène. And the contrast of colours between Christian and Satine, the former being a monotone onto which the latter heaps her exuberance, makes ‘Moulin Rouge’ a riveting show. Every cabaret number is an extravaganza, whereas the intimate songs are wrapped in mellow shades. The film perfectly blends use of almost-too-much colour with blinks of soft shades to keep its audience hooked and watching.
