Poll: Continuous Uninterrupted Shots in Movies

"Alright guys, so we're gonna have to get this one in one take..."

These shots show off some masterful filmmaking at it's finest, being executed in one uninterrupted take also known as "tracking shots"; not a single cut taken place in these ones, at least not one evident enough to the naked eye. In fact, if you fast-forwarded many of these scenes, you'd see for yourself!

Which of these continuous, uninterrupted shots in a film is your favorite?

After voting, you may discuss the poll here.
