    Oh man, they're kinda like a bag of potato chips. After I've had one, I just can't stop. And there's a lot of mediocre ones out there for sure. I just lost a lot of time browsing here....... https://flixel.com/cinemagraphs/

    I find it slightly unsettling, but an interesting effect in some shots (for instance the hiker crossing a glacier stream in the Spotlight collection). Don't think it'll ever really be my thing, though...

    yeah, they're a bit of a one-trick pony.

    They're like animated gifs using photos. I don't get it -- something I've never, ever said about a potato chip! :D

    I find the movement in the cinemagraphs distract from the image itself, but they undoubtedly have far more nutritional value than potato chips.
