After watching The 39 Steps (1935), I realized that Alfred Hitchcock really did have a talent for establishing suspense through films. Even though suspense was the primary focus, Hitchcock managed to effectively and intelligently mix humor, romance, and thriller. He uses a variety of techniques to convey these feelings to the audience. According, to some of his interviews with Francois Truffaut, Hitchcock mentions his love for The 39 Steps, specifically about the techniques he uses to create a bewitching experience throughout the film. In this film, he uses a variety of themes that he continued to constantly use throughout his later films.
All of Tim Burton's characters in his animated films are very unique and original. They are all in the same style, but are all different in their own ways. I myself have never seen any other characters that look the way that Tim Burton's do. His characters do also have a dark and creepy feel added to them. His characters are also very easily recognizable if you have seen them before because of the unique style I would definitely recommend this movie to someone, especially if they like movies that seem dark and creepy, but even just because of the
The score can 't come any closer to the plot itself, just like how Jacob goes back and forth between reality and his hallucinations, the main title goes back and forth from being a classical composition of strings and piano to full on electronic experimental new wave sounds. And it suits the movie so well, one might think the plot is based on the score not the other way
Not only that but casting Tobey Maguire,seems like the wrong choice as he seemed lifeless and insecure throughout the entire movie. It seemed like the movie was trying to get as many A-list actors and celebrities as they could to fill seats. In brief, The Great Gatsby is so close yet so far and with a few casting changes and major plot-hole fixes, the movie could have been something incredibly special. The soundtrack and album released from this movie was spot-on for this situation and fit really well within the overall theme of the movie. Overall, the movie was a definitely “watch on Netflix” or “watch on sale.” Paying full price for the album released from the movie might make more sense than watching
In the two films Edward Scissorhands and Charlie And The Chocolate Factory, but relies on cinematic techniques such as editing and camera angles. These techniques in his films set a certain mood/tone based on the story. These are the things that consider him an amazing film director, and also unique. The most important cinematic technique in Burton’s films is sound or in other words music. The main effect
After watching the recording version of Shrek the Musical, I consider that it is a successful production if the purpose of this musical is to amuse audiences and bring them an enduring audio-visual feast. As a musical that is created based on a blockbuster, the basic story framework is without novelty – an ugly but kind-hearted ogre experiences lots of dangers with a friend, saves the princess like a hero and wins her heart in the end. However, I have to admit that Shrek the Musical does a fantastic job to convert a movie into a Broadway show, considering the high level of complexity and difficulty for a team to humanize animated characters and imitate scenes. There are a lot of details, including Pinocchio’s growing nose, in the musical that show off the elaboration. Undoubtedly, the scenery is one of the brightest spot in this musical.

When Tristran leaves for the trip to Faerie, Dunstan gives him the snowdrop to take along, on the trip with the symbol of love he finds affection with Yvaine, "The rain began once more, but they made no move to get under cover.

The Queen is known for having jealousy issues against Snow White, but jealousy is not always the cause for being vindictive and ruining another person’s life. In my revision, I did not include a jealous trait upon anyone. Instead, everyone assumes Snow is too naïve to attempt to run away from the castle in the woods. I kept the setting of in the woods, since forests and wood areas are broad and can carry many details about which country the woods could be in. Castles are all over the world, but everyone has an almost similar image of a brick castle, dark interior full of pictures and images that show the history and age of the castle.
Production design, flower shops, café, toys George Melies sells, costumes, and the equipment people uses all demonstrated the time setting convincingly to the viewers. Additionally, the cinematographic style and sound track all collaborated well in this film. Using the accordion in the soundtrack it enhanced the Parisian style of the film. Continuing, the lightning and the color of the production design created an effect of fairy tale world, and with the tracking shot cinematographer decided to use on Hugo, made the viewer experience what Hugo experience in the film. However, the duration time of the film was long and slightly tedious at some points.
