However, in Neighbors, dramatic irony is prevalent. Dramatic irony is when the audience knows something that the characters do not. Dramatic and situational irony appear throughout a few of Carver’s numerous remarkable short stories. Cathedral by Raymond Carver is the story about a blind man, Robert, who visits a husband and wife in their home. One would expect the husband to be able to see more than the blind man, but ironically this is not the case.
The technological advancements have created new expectations that society abides by, such as having a viewing screen and remaining indoors. The citizens in the city behave as if they are dead and have no actual purpose to life, other than to watch their viewing screens, “whispering and murmurs where a window in a tomb-like building was still open”. Advances in technology, can help accomplish amazing things, but if technology is only used for entertainment purposes and does not actually involve using our brains, it can separate humans, instead of uniting us. Mr. Mead is a man who has no intention for his mind to rot and wither away with the meaninglessness of viewing screens. Instead of going through life in a blur, Mr. Mead chooses to appreciate the little things in life.
Lastly, “...the man finally shrugged and shot in the Novocain and yanked out a perfectly good tooth. There was some pain, no doubt, but in the morning Curt Lemon was all smiles.” Curt Lemon was a human just like the other soldiers, but wanted people to believe he was much more. He would do crazy things just so the others would think he was much tougher, just because he had a low opinion of himself. He couldn’t let the others know he was ordinary. He had to prove to the others, as well as himself, that he was a tough
Bonnie and Clyde movie managed to reach the goal to become one of the superlative movie during that period of time.

A story about being told to answer a subtlety death of a well-known English man is now claimed as one of the greatest films in cinema history. Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane set the bars in how to create an appealing and innovating storytelling that in this modern time is still recognized. Played as Charles Foster Kane, himself, Welles, unexpected fame brought breakthrough in the film history and student filmmakers of many generations had the chance to study this one-of-a-kind film.
There are many aspects of the film that are generally identifiable to diverse types of people, which is a tactful and effective way to create a receptive audience. Some of these aspects that draw the audience in and create relatability are not only personality traits of the characters, but also scenarios in which the audience might have themselves experienced or at least witnessed throughout their lives. In this film the relatable aspects of the characters and scenarios are multifaceted and not exclusive to each character, which is a tactful way to create diverse relatability within a broad audience. For example, an audience member might relate to the duty driven toil of daily work through the eyes of the
Hitchcock utilizes sound, camera work, MacGuffins, and plot twists to tell the storylines of the movies. Hitchcock understood the importance of camera work and sound because he began his career making silent films.12 It is why he uses many close up shots so the audience can pay attention to specific details and the emotions on the character’s face. He does not rely on dialogue to tell the story. He uses sound to help convey the message of a scene. He uses music to dramatize the scenes such as when Ruth catches the police spying on her in I Confess.
First of all, sound is an important concept in any movie. Although there are silent films, sound adds a whole different aspect. Non Diegetic sounds create emotion through what type of music is playing. Deep toned sounds create a bad vibe for villains or bad guys while light, upbeat sounds create good vibes and joy for heroes or good guys. For example, in the movie “Edward Scissorhands,” Director Burton uses Non Diegetic sound in the scene where
He says that the script builds up the style because what he writes dictates his dictatorial style. It’s a technique to build the story more effectively. Eastwood’s films are great examples that the old school style still brings success to the film industry as he continues to create one great movie after another. He started directing just a few years after making his name as an actor back in the 60s where he scored his first lead role. By the mid 70s he was known as a capable director with a consistent and individual style.
Other changes had no effect on the story because they were just items added in for dramatic effect, like Gatsby’s aggression towards Tom after Tom told him they were not equal. I feel like if I would have watched the movie first and then read the book the changes would seem much more
There were no computers, digital mixing systems or the latest technological equipment available to past musicians during the 1920’s or 1930’s. In addition, the quality of movies that were produced from the beginning of the 20th Century until today has drastically evolved with graphics and special effects enhancements. Lastly, I remember the era when people had beepers and would use a pay phone or go back upstairs to return the page received. Looking no further than our own pockets, the majority of people today
All the actions that Master Chief made throughout the movie were controlled by himself and I had no say in anything. Havstad claimed that by Master Chief never revealing his fact it allowed players to imagine Master Chief however they liked and also because a part of Master Chief’s personality is unfixed, they could change anything about him to relate and bond more with the character. The Cutscenes are only a small part of Halo so I can understand how that can be the case. The direction I’m coming from are only based on what I done and the only thing I have is watched. It is possible that by playing the game, I could become immersed in a way that I couldn’t have by watching.
Outside Looking In No one person is the same as the other; however, many people judge others when they look or act differently. What society does not recognize is how much one can accomplish when being slightly different. Tim Burton is one person who recognizes the greatness in being different. Being a bit of an outcast himself, Burton shows that outcasts can attain boundless things with the right mind set through his films. Burton has directed things like Edward Scissorhands, Alice in Wonderland, and Charlie in the Chocolate Factory.
Something that I learned when watching a video about men in prison is not all prison have the same social values and they are not all the same experience to an certain extent. There are some similar social qualities with males and females. Both males and females join groups but they do this for different reasons. Males are mostly based off of anger and violence. They join groups they normally would not be apart of in the normal world so they have survive and have protection.
